A couple of years ago, Hourglass released its decadent N.28 Lip Treatment Oil (comprehensively reviewed HERE); brimming with botanicals and emblazoned with a 24-karat gold tip applicator, this nourishing formula instantly hydrates while delivering long-lasting moisture for hours on end.
I am happy to report that in October, Hourglass will be releasing a limited-edition version of this luxe lippy in a stunning red shade, appropriately named Icon.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of Icon in action as well as the Bottom Line...
The N.28 Lip Treatment Oil in Icon features all of the benefits of the original formula (detailed below) with a color-saturated sheen of brilliant red for a gorgeous pop of color. Ever a nude lip lover, I tend to shy away from bold colors as a rule, but Icon is such a universally flattering soft rouge tone that I find myself feeling entirely comfortable with the deeper hue!
Lush and cushiony, with marvelous color payoff, the sheer shade can be built to medium (nearly full) coverage with a couple of glorious coats...the neutral cherry is an instant modern classic, excellent for the cooler months ahead.

Inspired by the design and color aesthetic of Hourglass N.28 Icon, I integrated my new(ish) Emilio Pucci eyeglasses into the mix. The frames are ultra-light, extremely comfortable and have a timeless feel. I am also wearing:
- *TEMPTUAir Foundation in Beige (reviewed HERE)
- Hourglass Ambient Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light (reviewed HERE)
- Tom Ford Moodlight (reviewed HERE)
- By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon (reviewed HERE)
- Surratt Beauty Relevee Mascara (reviewed HERE)
- Koh Gen Do Silky Moist Powder in #123 (reviewed HERE)

Bottom Line: Currently available for pre-order, the N.28 Lip Treatment Oil in Icon is a gorgeous LE addition to the perennially-chic Hourglass line. I hope you enjoyed this review as well as the dash of glasses for good measure; this severely nearsighted girl needs options and one simply cannot go wrong with Pucci ; )
Good things ahead, including a skincare update, a fresh green beauty story and a host of new fall procurements...I am also in the midst of responding to the latest batch of your lovely emails and comments. Thanks, as always, for your patience!
Have a marvelous Wednesday...xx,
