To celebrate World Vegan Day in 2020, Hourglass launched the Hourglass Red 0 Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick as a special limited edition launch, however they didn’t really publicise it, so they’re re-releasing the lipstick this week!
A couple of years ago, Hourglass announced that they were going to be cruelty free, and they announced that “In 2020, we will be completely vegan”. Now they’ve launched this Hourglass Red 0 Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick to celebrate World Vegan Day, and it’s beautiful!
Like the name suggests, the Hourglass Red 0 World Vegan Day Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick is a special, limited edition carmine-free version of their Confession Lipstick formula.
The Confession lipsticks are special because they’re refillable, and once you’ve purchased the metallic handle, you can just purchase the refills and swap them around.
This lipstick comes with the handle, and the refill, so you can use it straight out of the beautiful, special edition red box.
“A special-edition Confession Lipstick in a brilliant red hue. Hourglass introduces this new shade Red 0 which is a vegan ingredient that replaces carmine.
Traditionally, red pigment is produced from crushed female insects. This limited-edition lipstick is encased with a red applicator and adorned with a beetle to represent Hourglass’s commitment to animal welfare.
This lipstick delivers creamy, long-wearing colour with a satin finish, plus it won’t smudge or feather. This lipstick is designed for interchangeable use with the entire collection of Confession Lipstick refills.“
The Hourglass Red 0 Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick is described as being a bright true red, and it’s such a stunning shade of red.
“With nearly 70,000 female insects used to create one pound of the crimson dye traditionally used in cosmetics, Red 0 symbolizes Hourglass’s commitment to animal welfare: zero animal byproducts, zero animals harmed.
The Confession Lipstick – Red 0 is encased in an exclusive red applicator adorned with a beetle, representing Hourglass’s commitment to animal welfare. A special edition, this refillable applicator is designed for interchangeable use with the entire collection of Confession refills.“
