When Hourglass Cosmetics launched its Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in 2012, a beauty craze ensued. And while legions of imitators have followed suit with their own liquid lipsticks, the original remains unmatched in its hydrating, richly pigmenting powers. The secret is in the blend—a mix of moisturizing ingredients like goji berry and cili fruit add antioxidant protection to prevent aging, while vitamins A, C, and E nourish lips. The elixir, which sets to a matte finish after just one minute, is beloved by makeup artists like Kayleen McAdams, Carola Gonzalez, Beau Nelson, and Kira Nasrat. McAdams favors its bold hues, which brighten the complexion and further enhance tanned skin. For his part, Nelson can’t get enough of the fabulous stain’s six-hour staying power.
