Today I will be introducing you to the extra plump volumizing balm from Hourglass. Trust me this is the kind of lip product you want in your handbag!
Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm
Being a 3-in-1 hybrid means this lip smacker has a lot to offer. Deeply hydrating like a lip balm, it plumps the lips up for a fuller look. Along with the juicy, volumized lips comes a high-shine finish of a lip gloss. I know it's a lot to take in.
The lip balm glides smoothly onto the lip offering a full-bodied colour that is sure to brighten your day. Far away from the sticky or tacky feeling of lip glosses. Existing in 8 shades, ranging from vibrant to more discreet tones. Packaged in a sleek twist-up pen, it is easy to apply with precision. Hourglass didn't stop there. The glossy balm offers a hydrating action along with a high shine. Lips are plumped.
Talking of actions here is what's inside the vegan and cruelty-free lip balm:
One of the key ingredients is Menthyl Lactate which provides an instant cooling sensation to the lips. So don't be surprised.
Also, there is Conditioning Complex which is a blend of emollients and oils that nourish, condition, and hydrate the lips.
The formula used to create this balm is pretty impressive. Free of Gluten, Phthalates, Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrance, Talc and not tested on animals.
Below are the shades available and are swatched below for your reference:
- Entice – 145 Bright Fuchsia
- Haze 135 – Rose
- Lucid 155 – Soft Coral (not swatched)
- Lure 175 – Deep Berry

As a woman who is constantly on the go, I look for easy and effective products. I feel like Hourglass took into consideration all types of women and lifestyles to create a product that does it all.
First, let's talk about the volume. We all know that gloss was designed to give a shiny, bigger-looking lip. But Hourglass has managed to deliver the same result with a balm texture. Much lighter on the lip, it feels natural and elegant. Another strong point of these products is the choice of colours. I love a brand that offers very different shades. This makes the product adaptable to your mood and is inclusive of all skin tones.
I am also enjoying the new Voyeur Waterproof Gel Eyeliners. They are smooth and pigmented, gentle on my sensitive eyes.
