Review: Hourglass Cosmetics Prodigy Lip Gloss

Hey girls! Today I’m reviewing the Hourglass cosmetics Prodigy lip gloss in Opium. This shade is described as a darkened plum with lots of glitter and shimmer, but it looks more like a bronzed beige shade with lots of multi-colored glitter. As you can see in the swatch, it has more silver glitters, but it isn’t chunky or anything. It recently released in March at Sephora stores, online as well as on the company’s website for $26. Keep reading to see my thoughts on this product!

-Lightweight and very smooth.
-Very compact and cute case/packaging.
-Very shimmery, but not gritty.

-Very sheer.
-Pricey for the amount of quantity you get.

Overall review: This lip gloss is probably the only one I’ve ever tried that isn’t sticky at all. It’s just like water on your lips with sheen. This gloss is very sheer and because of that, I wear it over a lip stick for a beige/bronze sheen on my lips. I don’t think I would buy this product again because it’s pricey. Although, you do get more product than you do in a MAC lip gloss, but it makes up the price also. I do really like this gloss, but I wish it was more pigmented. I wouldn’t repurchase this again, but I don’t think I’ll use it up that fast anyways. The consistency isn’t thick or too thin. It’s just right. I hope you enjoyed and thanks to Jane for requesting this review! Enjoy!
