PR samples. Affiliate links | I think I just found my new favourite lip gloss and I am very excited about it! Check out Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss. I have all the shade swatches here!
If shiny is your thing, then you are going to need to own at least one of these beauties. They are so glossy, feel super nourishing and hydrating on the lips, and really do give the look of enhanced volume instantly. Also, I swatched all 18 on my lips in a row for a YouTube video, and my lips felt better after, than they did at the start. It’s not often you can say that after an intense lip swatching session!
What is Hourglass Unreal?

Hourglass Unreal Swatches
So as I said above, there are 18 shades and I have them all here for you.
Love the nudes, especially Child and Prose. I also love the sheer shimmers, particularly Fortune which is so easy to apply and wear. I also love Icon, the bold red. Amazingly, it doesn’t really transfer onto glasses when I drink which is pretty ‘unreal’ (excuse the pun) for a pigmented gloss!
The formula feels absolutely incredible on the lips. It is smooth, creamy, instantly hydrating and soothing and with absolutely no stickiness. It really is the most excellent formula. Unreal doesn’t have a strong fragrance, or stingy plumping sensation – everything about it is elegant. I am a massive fan. It’s glorious.
The only thing I’d say is that whilst the doe-foot is absolutely brilliant for depositing the perfect amount of product onto the lip in one swipe, the shape isn’t as precise as it could be for the deeper shades. However, that’s really not a problem. I just have to actually look in the mirror!
Subscribe to my YouTube to see all the shades on my lips.
It’s a massive thumbs up from me, and gloss lovers will be obsessed. Of that I am positive!
