Exclusive: Le Métier de Beauté Coral Confection Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss

CORALS.

When I see corals everywhere, I know summer is finally here. (Though it really should step up its game. It's rainy and cold and miserable outside right now. I need a good excuse to slather on sunscreen, hey?)

While I've been covering corals a fair amount recently (see Chanel Calypso and LMdB Riviera), I haven't seen anything quite as bright as Le Métier de Beauté Coral Confection Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss among the new releases.


Coral Confection is a bold, bright coral red with no shimmer. In the tube, it looked similar to Red Velvet (less blue) and Hibiskiss (less pink, no shimmer), even though I knew the color was very different applied. I decided to show and swatch them side by side anyway:

L-R: Coral Confection, Red Velvet, Hibiskiss


L-R: Coral Confection, Red Velvet, Hibiskiss

When applied, Coral Confection is blindingly bright. Even though it features the Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss formula (less creamy compared to Lip Crème formula), which sometimes swatches pigmented and ends up sheer on the lips, make no mistake – Coral Confection will show up. 




When the gloss dries down, it becomes a lovely stain that lasts forever on the lips (seven hours in, the pigment was still there), which I actually prefer. The stain is a flattering muted coral shade. Do note that Coral Confection does bleed a little so I highly recommend lining/concealing around the lip area when wearing it. It's an extra step, but the color, comfort of the formula, and general happiness this gloss gives me makes it well worth it.

Le Métier de Beauté Coral Confection Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss (most probably $32) should reach stores later this month.

Coral Confection and Hibiskiss were provided to me by the company for consideration, while Red Velvet was a Neiman Marcus GWP
