Hourglass is one of my favourite cosmetic lines. Not only are the cosmetics of the highest quality and perform above and beyond the call of beauty-duty, but their packaging is gorgeous. Hourglass products feel like high quality items and there is nothing flimsy about the construction or the design. They feel nice in the hand and are attractive in their soft bronze/brown shade with gold highlights. Well, Hourglass really ups the ante with their No 28 Lip Treatment Oil. It’s my new favourite lip treatment and I love the way it makes my lips look and fee. And the packaging? WOW!
From the Hourglass website:

Equipped with an opulent 24-karat gold-plated tip—it’s the gold standard for lips.
A 24kt gold-plated, anti-bacterial palladium tip dispenses product and creates a soothing effect on the lips

Hourlgass No 28 Lip Treatment Oil works right away to make you lips look luscious and kissable, and over time it heals chapped lips and keeps them soft and supple while protecting them from the elements. It’s chock full of essential oils, including rose, sweet almond and jojoba, which are among the fourteen oils Hourglass squeezes into this lovely little tube. There is a magical ingredient from a succulent plant that promises to increase the volume of your lips by lots and lots at the end of 28 days, hence the name of the product.
