Le Métier de Beauté Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss ($32) is one of my favorites. I promised to show you some of the lighter shades I purchased a long time ago. Today, I am making good on that promise. Sorry about the delay!
This is a luxurious lip gloss. It's got "sumptuous, punchy color" that saturates the lips in a unique, ultra-lightweight formula, enriched with emollients and antioxidants for lips that are healthy as well as beautiful. I reach for one of my Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss shades more often than any other lip gloss I own - and I have an incredible lip gloss collection. OK, I'm a lip gloss addict. I'll admit it. I love glossy lips. I want my lips to have some color. I want my lips to feel good. It all comes together with lip gloss.
Le Métier de Beauté's Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss is available in shades that look great on everyone. It has a a silky texture that applies with ease, leaving behind weightless color and shine. It's never sticky, which I appreciate. Once I apply it, it becomes part of me.
It was September (hard to believe it's been that long) when I showed you swatches of all the lighter shades of Sheer Brilliance. I had gone to the Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie counter to visit with Lisa Lingis, and while I was there I swatched many colors for you. At the time, I intended to show you some of the "lighter" shades I purchased. Here are three of them, many months later.
Not the greatest swatch photo, but it's the best one I got the last day we had sunshine. My photo was taken in strong outdoor sunlight. I wanted to show you a sampling of shades. At the top, Captiva shows its neutral side, but not its light peach-pink side. This shade is one I think everyone can wear. Some of you probably know that Captiva used to be gold. There are still some gold testers floating around. I like the "new Captiva" even more than the old one! Gold is easy to find. Today's Captiva is unique.
The middle shade is Monaco, which is brown with just a hint of rose to my eye. This versatile shade will neutralize a flashy lipstick, making it a perfect topper for gals who don't want to lead with their lips. It looks good alone too. I wear it that way often. Combined with the pink or rose in your lips, it's a flattering shade.
The bottom shade on my arm is Dubai. Rose in the tube and pink on the lips, it's as pretty in pink as it gets.
I now own almost all of the Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss shades (yes, even I have a spending breaking point - I would love to have all of them!). I wear them frequently, which is why I wanted to share. I wear La Belle or Uma Paro, two shades in the plum family, at least three days/week. One lives in my bathroom; one is on my desk at work. It's love. One of the three shades shown here is always in my handbag.
You can find Le Métier de Beauté Lip Gloss at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and online at Nordstrom. Some Nordstrom stores have a counter. These Sheer Brilliance Lip Glosses get my gold seal of approval. You will love them.
