It’s a (beauty) truth universally acknowledged that too many lipsticks are never enough. That, and a perfectly executed pout will take you places in life: a boss lady red for unbridled confidence, ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ pink-nudes for meeting future in-laws and berry-noir stains for after-dark vamp.

Another beauty truth: the new Confession lipstick collection is really something to talk about.

Taking its cue from its Lash Curator cousin, Confession is part lipstick, part accessory and oh-so Instagram worthy: “the ultimate luxury lipstick that discreetly fits in my pocket or clutch,” as Hourglass founder Carisa Janes puts it. Indeed this golden wand is made for flashing in front of friends—and in your next flat lay—while slipping into the slimmest of Comme des Garçons pouches.

Aside from obvious good looks, Hourglass’ latest accoutrement is ready to load with interchangeable—and seriously svelte—lipstick bullets, designed for contour-hugging application to accentuate and define lips. A veritable lip wardrobe of 30 ultra-pigmented, creamy and longwearing shades allows you to tailor your pout to every mood.

And it already bears the celebrity makeup artist stamp of approval: Linda Jefferyes employed the “beautiful, velvety finish” of No One Knows’ peachy-pink in our recent campaign shoot. “I loved playing with these new Confession lipsticks,” she says, “the texture is heaven, really conditioning, and so many nudes to choose from.”

Like an ace up your sleeve (or in Janes’ case, clutch) this latest secret weapon in your beauty arsenal is set to elevate your lip game to luxe new heights. Us? Obsessed? Guilty as charged.
