Le Metier de Beaute Paris Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipstick

Le Metier de Beaute Paris Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is an opaque magenta-fuchsia with a cream finish. It has the barest of a sheen, which does wear away after a couple of hours and results in a more matte finish. MAC Zen Rose is similar, glossier. Shiseido Fuchsia RS 320 is comparable, slightly purpler. MAC Pink Pigeon is brighter, pinker. MAC Love Forever is purpler. MAC Something New is pinker. NARS Schiap is pinker, slightly brighter.

The Colour Core Moisture Stain is designed to be both a lip stain and lipstick with full color coverage and a moisturizing formula. It’s also supposed to be long-wearing without bleeding or feathering. The texture is soft, barely creamy, but somehow still manages to glide across lips easily and deposits opaque color with little product.  Paris wore for six and a half hours, and there was a residual stain that lingered noticeably for another hour after that. My lips felt hydrated both during and after wear.

I also want to note something I’ve found common with these lipsticks: more often than not, the tip of the lipstick is slightly smooshed upon arrival. It might be an overfilling problem that occurs during manufacturing, but it’s not just one but more like every other one where this problem occurs.

It's a darker pink that still retains a lot of brightness--but it's not neon or electric--and there's some magenta, but not so much that it turns purple. It's a great pick for summer, and the formula is moisturizing and long-wearing, just as advertised!
