If you lurk around Twitter, you might have noticed extended chatter between me and my dear friends Larie and Tracy about our search for the perfect vamp lipstick (my requirement is a perfect balance between red, purple and brown, that's blackish but not too black. On top of that, in a formula I actually like). That lucky duck Larie already found hers, while I can only report a shade that's not vampy enough. But hey, I heard oxblood is a big trend this fall.
The shade in question: Le Métier de Beauté 'Colour Core' Stain Lipstick in Castelo, a deep wine with a hint of shimmer so it doesn't seem flat when applied.
I like it.
Le Métier de Beauté Castelo retails for $30 and is available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, as well as select Nordstroms and Saks locations.
