Le Metier de Beaute Color Core Lipstick in Fiji ($32) is a vibrant pink coral moisturizing luxury lipstick. Although it looks rather gentle in tone in the tube, Liz found that it applied with a vibrancy and comfort that demonstrates that the pigments and ingredients of this lipsticks are truly top-drawer. Here are comparisons between Le Metier’s Dubai, Fuji and Paris:

Here’s a bullet comparison between the soft dusty rose Le Metier de Beaute Dubai and Le Metier’s warmer, lighter Fiji:

 

Liz and I found that Fiji applied as a very gentle light pink on lips. Liz’s warm skin tones brought out some of the pink in Fiji–the peachy tone of Fiji in the tube does not seem to have translated to Liz’s lips. We both went “oooooh!” when she applied it because it seemed to transform a bit. On me, it applies much less vibrantly, as a quieter gentle warm somewhat light rose.

The coverage is very opaque-Le Metier’s Fiji covers my pigmented lips entirely. This is very unusual for a lipstick with such a light tone. Usually, lighter toned lipsticks are too sheer on me. As a tribute to its quality, the opacity does not create any chalky or require a thick layer of lipstick. I think we’ve all seen the “pile on the lipstick” effect that starts to creep into lip lines (not attractive, and very aging). The Le Metier Color Core formula means business–it covers with a thin layer of product, and the moisturizing formula adds a youthful, creamy glow.

Bottom line–awesome formula for someone who wants to look sophisticated without piling on layers of color. Moisturizing, lovely universal color and awesome coverage without requiring layers of pigment. Unfortunately, my love affair with Fiji will be short-lived, as Liz has claimed Fiji as her go-to Spring 2012 color. It’s ready for you, Liz!

Le Metier de Beaute has released an amazing line of vibrant Color Core Lipsticks ($32 each) for Spring 2012, including Paris.  Be still my heart, a lipstick named after my favorite city.

First of all, I should say that these lipsticks feel very moisturizing, yet they seem to last a few hours on me. That’s  pretty unusual for me–lipsticks rarely last more than one hour on me because I’m always talking, drinking water, and the like throughout the day. There’s no question that Le Metier de Beaute’s lipsticks are worthy of the label “high end luxury.”

Paris is a gorgeous, vibrant magenta pink that’s both striking and feminine. Opaque in one swipe, the color gives a soft, vibrant glow. The texture is very creamy with very tiny sparkle that is not perceptible unless you are focusing very, very close. This feels very balmy and yet it retains a very saturated color.

 

Here is Le Metier de Beaute Paris compared to Dubai and Fiji, also released with this same Spring 2012 Collection, which are far softer in tone:

Bottom line–if you want to wear some of the vibrant cool tone pinks on the lips, you’ll get an amazing formula and gorgeous glow with Le Metier de Beaute’s Paris. A luxurious, striking color.
