Are these gorgeous or what? Le Metier de Beaute is taking the pink route this year with 5 fabulous Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipsticks. Think of an English garden and you have the inspiration for these lipsticks.
Here are the “official” descriptions from Le Metier de Beaute’:
Miami – Think of this as your nude pink. It’s just enough of a peachy pink tone to warm up your palette while still maintaining that totally “natural” look. The perfect hint-of-color pink
Fiji – The perfect “English Rose” pink. A flush of rosy color that warms any palette for a romantic and feminine swipe of color
Cannes – A warm pink with just a hint of shimmer for a glamorous finish
Dubai – A richly pigmented pink with a touch of mauve to balance its pink-ness
Paris – A deep, magenta pink, reminiscent of a peony
Neiman Marcus describes Le Metier’s Colour Core Moisture Stain lipstick formula perfectly:
A brand new concept in lip stains, this one goes on with a velvety texture, provides lasting moisture but creates that coveted “just-bitten” natural flush of a lip-stain.
- Vibrant color and sensational comfort.
- Jojoba, lanolin and shea butter keep lips soft and supple.
- Soft, creamy formula won’t fade, smudge or feather.
- Long-lasting silky finish.
Now you’ll get the BIZ’s descriptions of these gorgeous shades.
I love pink lipstick so when Le Metier de Beaute chose to use this color for their spring collection I was in heaven. Five gorgeous shades to pick from all in my favorite color! No surprise that I picked the two lightest since I prefer a lighter lipstick most of the time.
Miami – while this is described as a nude, on my lightly pigmented lips I see color. My own lip shade adds a little so that it’s a step up from nude. More of that “your lips but better” nude. Miami has a little bit of frost to it but not 1960’s frost. I promise no one is staring at you wondering how you got lost in the past.
Cannes – Le Metier describes this as having a shimmer but I don’t see it on my lips. I just see a beautiful rosy pink that I’m comfortable wearing with just about anything.
Would you believe these are my first Le Metier de Beaute lipsticks? I adore the lip glosses and have quite of few of those, but for some reason I never even tried the lipsticks. I am definitely impressed with these – they are creamy, shiny, and last pretty well. The colors really are outstanding, especially for a pink lover like me.
Fiji – Fiji is described as an English Rose Pink, a very accurate description. It’s a beautiful pink that’s somewhere between light and medium that would look great on both warm and cool toned complexions.
This isn’t totally matte, there is a slight shimmer that gives it some depth and complexity.
It’s a pretty rose that goes on sheer but you can build it up to be much brighter.
Dubai – Dubai is described as a mauve-pink. It’s definitely darker than Fiji, and it also has some shimmer in it.
This is a wonderfully wearable color, the tiny shimmers really make the color shine.
Paris – I didn’t think I would be able to wear this one. It’s a beautiful bright pink (is it fuschia? magenta? not sure but it’s bright!) that I thought would be way to overwhelming for my rather thin lips.
However, it’s surprisingly wearable! I am sure this would be stunning on those of you with ample lips, but even the lip-challenged can wear this. It’s a bold but somehow soft color that brightens your look without screaming PINK!!!!
I am sure Paris won’t get as much play for me as the other two, but still I have some outfits that this color would be stunning with. I am glad I have it as an option, it’s going to look really nice once I get my faux tan going.
Here are the three colors swatched side by side. Paris is on the far left, Fiji is in the middle, and Dubai is far right.
These are available at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom and Zuneta. Le Metier de Beaute Spring Pink lipsticks are all opaque lipsticks that leave a lovely stain behind plus they have moisturizing qualities. They are all wonderful possibilities and great shades for the season. Have fun deciding which colors will be perfect for you!
