Saint Germain Lipstick

You know I had to do lip swatches, too ;)

Saint Germain lipstick came out in Euristocrats, which wasn’t a collection available stateside, so it is a treat to have it come out in a regularly available launch. It’s a pretty cool-toned lipstick; maybe a little pinker than Melrose Mood from Heatherette–the two are comparable if I’m remembering correctly.

Consume Me is a little blah, considering it’s incredibly sheer. It gives lips a glossy finish with a little bit of shimmer. For those curious about the packaging, it is very much (if not exactly like) Couture/Stylistics lipglass packaging. Even the applicator feels the same; which is a skinny doe-foot applicator that doesn’t pick up a whole lotta product. I’d say the formula of this gloss isn’t much like lipglass, because it isn’t thick at all (which may be the result of the applicator…). It also didn’t feel very sticky to me. I did try to mess up the color layers, and I didn’t succeed. You can see the color punch into the next one when you put the wand back, but the color does return to its normal layer pretty quickly. (It was kind of fun trying!)

Remember how there was one Le Metier de Beaute gloss that slipped away (aka out of stock)? I ordered it off of Neiman Marcus Online last week (they had free shipping!), and it arrived yesterday. I thought I’d share it, because I love, love, LOVE IT!

The color is Papaya Creme ($36), and it’s this beautiful, shimmering shade of coppery-peachy-gold. The color itself is stunning (at least to me!), but the magic lies in the gloss’ pigmentation and wearing power. It goes on so much like it swatches, and in a gloss, this doesn’t happen nearly enough (Hello Kitty glosses, I’m talkin’ to you!). These glosses also wear for hours without touchups required, too!

Temptalia's Answer.

Oh, wow! I haven’t worn any full makeup in WAY too long… not since getting back from NYC! I think the last look I wore was my Le Metier de Beaute glosses :) I love them just by themselves!
