One of the easiest way to cheer myself up on a dark and rainy day is to bust out the bright lipstick. This fall, Hourglass came out with their new range of matte liquid lipsticks called Opaque Rouge... aaaaand they're amazing.

I mentioned my love for the shade "Canvas" before on my YouTube channel, but this time the shade Muse has all the attention. These lip products go on smoothly like a gloss (with a doe foot applicator) and immediately dry to a perfectly matte finish. 

They feel lightweight and comfortable on the lips. The product does tend to bunch up close to the inside of the lips throughout the day so a good exfoliation beforehand is key. Here is Muse in all its glory:

You literally have to scrub this off with makeup remover at the end of the day. Staying power is awesome. Since the colour is so loud (and I love love love it), I kept the rest of the makeup very minimal and just wore a bit of light brown eyeshadow in the crease, a bit of bronzer and liquid liner.

I highly recommend these lipsticks if you're on the search for something bold and matte to switch things up.

What are your favourite bold lipsticks?
