The luxury line has my lips saying “j’adore!”
Normally with my reviews I would try to open with a clever anecdote or some kind of interesting tidbit of information, but I’m just going to cut to the chase on this one and say: I love, love, LOVE the Moisture Stain Lipsticks from Le Métier de Beauté!
What is it about these lipsticks that have me so head over heels? First, the Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipsticks ($32) come in a wide range of shades and are named after fun global hot spots like Paris, Thailand, and Monaco. Second, they are packaged in cool, modern, black, rubbery, ringed tubes. And third, they feature key ingredients like jojoba, lanolin and shea butter to boost the moisturizing factor.
While the shades themselves are rich and fun, it’s the other aspects of these lipsticks that really sold me, mainly that they delivered everything they promised! These were the perfect balance between both a lipstick and a stain. They have a very light, almost creamy texture and go on silky smooth. And like a stain the color is a bit sheer, but has full coverage like a lipstick. If you want a more dynamic color then you can easily build up additional layers without feeling like you’ve caked on a ton of lipstick.
Available in 26 beautiful hues, the team received four shades for review.
Riviera – bright warm red with an orange edge
San Tropez – creamy brown tinged nude
I tested Castelo, a sensual, dark wine color, tinged with the slightest reddish copper hue. It’s great for an evening out!
I also tried Captiva, a pinkish, caramel brown with tiny flecks of gold shimmering throughout. It’s a great neutral shade that’s perfect for daywear since it’s subtle without being boring.
I would suggest stopping by your local makeup counter to test these out. Word around the internet is that the online color samples aren’t necessarily always true to the actual color and I found this to be true with the two shades I tested.
Luckily, we have Stef’s mad photography skills to give us a great look at these gems in action:
Once on, these lipsticks remain blendable, yet won’t bleed or feather! And even more impressive is the outstanding staying power. I wore these for an evening out and despite drinks and food, there was only a slight fading of color, but for the most part it stayed put. A good sign: I actually had to remove it before I went to bed!
Plus these truly do moisturize. Normally I feel some stains can dry out my lips, but not these gems. My lips felt supple and soft the entire time it was on and even after I took the lipstick off.
I know $32 seems a hefty price to pay for 0.14 ounce tube of lipstick, but the quality of Le Métier de Beauté’s ‘Colour Core’ Moisture Stain Lipsticks are beyond anything I’ve used before. I promise the second you try one of these out you will have to fight the urge to buy every shade in this line!
