Hourglass’ Aura Sheer Petal shaded lip stain is a peachy pink with a tasteful sprinkle of golden shimmer. Rather unsual in my opinion, as most lip stains that I have come across seem to be either matte or glossy, rarely shimmery.
It is very light weight, quite possibly because it is water-based. However, it applies in an irritating streaky manner on me. I find that dabbing the stain on with the doe foot applicator before smothing it out with my fingers prevents the unsightly streaks.
Enriched with vitamin E and green tea extracts, this is a long lasting product that doesnt dessicate my lips. It also works well under a gloss or balm such as Lanolips Lemonaid.
Available online from Zuneta and in-store in Liberty, London.
