Last year I purchase the Holiday Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim Refillable Lipstick trio. I just loved the idea of these lipsticks for some reason. The lipsticks are super expensive, roughly $42 CAD to get the lipstick and the applicator. But when Hourglass makes their holiday kits they usually offer a collection of products at a bit of a discount. This set was $72 CAD and included three lipsticks with two applicators. I think it was a great deal and had a value of $112 dollars.
They are extremely slim and resemble those old school cigarette holders. You basically have to take the lipstick refills and connect them to the applicator. It’s fairly simple and the box comes with the instructions to do this. I like that the set this year included two of the applicators. It makes it a little bit easier to use all the the lipstick shades without having to change the applicator each time you want to use one.
This set came with exclusive rose toned applicators. I love them a million times more than the traditional gold ones that you would get in the past with these lipsticks. This set was worth it to me to just get those two exclusive applicators because I was lusting over them so much after I first saw this set.
The three shades that came in this trio were:
I think this year had a little bit more variety with the colours and they were a lot more wearable for me. I think the shade I Can’t Live Without is my favourite shade from the set. It’s the perfect deep shade while still being extremely wearable.
The formula of the lipsticks are one of my all time favourite formulas for a shiny lipsticks. This has a satin formula that looks just slightly glossy on the lips. I love how thick and pigmented the lipsticks are. They give you a perfect lip colour with just a quick swipe. They are fairly long wearing for a satin formula. Depending on what food you eat I’ve had the lipstick make it through a meal before!
All of these shades are in the regular collection so you can still find them. There just isn’t the bundle with the exclusive packaging any longer.
Overall this is one of my favourite luxury lipsticks. I will continue to buy these holiday sets if Hourglass keeps releasing them in the future! I hope they come out with another exclusive shade for the applicator next year!
