Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lipgloss - Siren

OMG OMG...I'm like super duper excited and head over heals for this product. About a week ago during the VIB sale event, I was browsing at Sephora for my goodies and saw this lipgloss on display and when I swatched it, I knew I had to get it. Unfortunately, this shade was completely sold out but today when I went back, it was back in stock but there was only 2 left so that must tell you right there that this is a HOT item. For the record, I exchanged my Guerlain lipstick (Grenade), the one I had bought during Sephora's friends and family sale for this one. The reason is because my YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick Rouge Vermillon was pretty similar in color.

With that said, I've just tried Hourglass Siren on myself and let me tell ya, this color looks freaken stunning! A total showstopper. The color is so rich, pigmented, vibrant, glossy, and metallic. It feels very nice on the lips and non-sticky. It smells like coconut. The packaging is different and sleek. I really like it. The only thing I don't like about this product is the brush applicator because if you don't know it, a lot of these brush applicators have a tendency to fan out and can make application a hassle. I would have loved it so much more with a doe-foot applicator.
This lipgloss retails for $28.00 at Sephora. It's on the pricy side but I think it was totally worth it. If you didn't know it yet, this is a brand new brand that launched very recently at Sephora.

This color slightly leans on the warm side probably because of the fine red and gold microshimmers which give a multi-dimentional effect. This is a must have lipgloss in my book.

I took this picture with flash because I think it captures the color of this lipgloss better. I wanted you guys to see how gorgeously metallic this red is. I can't stop staring at it, haha. It looks a lot better in person, trust me. Next time you go to Sephora, I urge you to take a peak at this lipgloss. Siren is quite unique. However, if you are not a fan of reds, they do offer more subtle and wearable shades. Personally, I love this color because it's different and stands out.


  1. ooo~ This is a pretty red. Like the color of a really fast sports car, is what first came into my mind. It's so shiney.

  2. Omg I love it! reminds me of nail polish... for your lips. ;)
