Le Metier de Beaute Hibiskiss Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss

Le Metier de Beaute Hibiskiss Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a dark fuchsia red with subtle white shimmer and subtly cool blue undertones. The color coverage is semi-opaque–it yields a fair amount of color, but there’s still some translucency. Burberry Hibiscus is lighter, not as intense. NARS Mexican Rose is very similar but a bit brighter and more opaque. Lancome Electric Pink is a bit redder and has a lot more shimmer. MAC Just Add Colour is a bit lighter and has fuchsia shimmer.

Le Metier de Beaute’s Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss formula is a very comfortable, decadent formula to wear, because it has a lightweight feel, non-sticky texture, and feels moisturizing while you wear it and for a couple of hours after the majority has worn off. When I tested out this shade, it wore for four hours. It has a high shine that lasts for nearly as long as the color itself does, which isn’t always the case with a gloss. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with this formula.  Since this is a deeper shade, it will suit virtually every skin tone–the depth plays well with warm tones, despite the cooler undertones, and it will give high contrast against paler skin and plenty of color to work with darker complexions, too.

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium tangerine with gold shimmer. On my lips, it gives them an orange-tint–it looks slightly darker and more like a tint than a colored gloss. There’s also a fine golden shimmer that catches light really well. Oddly enough, I couldn’t think of a perfect dupe for this. It’s sheer yet tinted enough that it adds color and hue to my lips that reads as natural as it could ever be. Do you have any suggestions for a dupe? Perhaps I am being extra forgetful!

The formula of the Sheer Brilliance Lipglosses is lightweight, non-sticky, moisturizing, and for such a sheer gloss, rather longer-wearing. When I wore Orange Juiced, it hung on for three and a half hours and didn’t get sticky over time (which is something I’ve noticed happens with some of the longer-wearing lipglosses out there). This is also a nicely moisturizing formula that leaves lips feeling softer after it wears away than when it was initially applied!  The texture is wonderfully lightweight without being terribly thin; it’s comfortable to wear and gives off a healthy shine.  There was no scent or taste that I could detect.

A lovely gloss formula that's comfortable to wear, moisturizing, and lightweight. It's part of a formula that's supposed to be sheerer, so if you're looking for a more opaque gloss, consider their Lip Cremes instead.
