It’s always fun when something a bit different comes along and this range is certainly a bit different. If you like a bit of glam luxe in your beauty arsenal, you will love these. They are like the modern-day lipstick equivalent of the ornate cigarette holders sported by old Hollywood starlets. Check out the Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick line up; I have swatches of all 30 shades for you!
I was a tiny but confused when I first laid eyes on these beauties, but then it all made sense pretty quickly. You basically buy a full lipstick which comes with your chosen colour in beautiful slim, gold packaging.
Then, if you want more shades, or you finish your lipstick, you simply purchase the refills.

How To Refill Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim Lipstick
So just in case you are confused like I was, here’s a quick guide on refilling your lipstick:
- Choose a lipstick refill and remove the black cap and base
- Hold the pointed end of the applicator, remove the gold cap and existing lipstick (if there) and insert new shade until it clicks
- Reconnect the refill black cap and base to store for future use
My Top Picks
The shade range is gorgeous and there is something for everyone. My favourites are:
The First Time
My Icon Is
When I’m With You
The texture is creamy and smooth and really hugs the lips. The soft sheen it imparts is super flattering and the colour lasts really well. I love the how glam the applicator is. I am such a show off when it comes to makeup, so pulling this beauty out of my handbag is pure joy! I think the nudes will get the most use because I have such a nude lipstick obsession right now. But if I fancy something bold, I’m going for I Crave because it is an absolute stunner.
In terms of value for money, I don’t think it’s too bad. The formula is amazing – admittedly, you don’t get that much product, but it’s so pigmented that one swipe is enough for full coverage. They feel super hydrating and really gives the lips a smooth finish.
I like the idea that you can just buy your shade again without having to invest in the packaging more than once, and I also love that you can just interchange on a daily basis, if you like to wear different shades. Also, they are so slim and sleek which makes them perfect for your handbag or purse.
