Le Métier de Beauté Spring 2013: Pink Berry, Coral Rose, Pink-e Promise

By a stroke of good fortune (or what my editor at Lifestyle Mirror calls "suffering from brand loyalty"),  I acquired three of the five new lip products Le Métier de Beauté has in store for spring. My Muji drawer, previously fitting just the right amount of lip cremes, is now overfloweth. While I recognize that this isn't really a problem, it's kind of still a problem (to my organizational self).

Ah, petty complaints. On to the swatches!

L-R: Pink Berry Lip Creme, Coral Rose and Pink-e Promise Sheer Brilliance Lip Glosses

Pink Berry Lip Crème

In general, this spring's lip products are well named in that there's no guesswork involved on what color you're putting on your lips. There is no exact dupe of Pink Berry in the Le Métier de Beauté core line, but if you want me to make a comparison, I'd say it's the berry version of Fraise Creme.

According to The Ultimate Makeup, Pink Berry is the exact same shade as Cebu, which was previously exclusive to Neiman Marcus Tysons Galleria (and sold out really quickly).

Coral Rose Sheer Brilliant Lip Gloss

This is me, suffering from deer in headlights face lethargy

Now this is a coral I can get behind! Just slightly pinked down and not overly warm. Great color for a nude summer look.

Pink-e Promise Sheer Brilliant Lip Gloss

I find the formula for this a little inconsistent to the name. Pink-e Promise is supposed to be a Sheer Brilliant Lip Gloss, which means it should be pigmented when swatched but barely show up when on the lips (hence "sheer"). I would have called it a lip crème based on the texture. Nevertheless, it's Barbie pink goodness in a tube.

  1. Beautifuuuul. <3 Always wanted to try out Cebu!

  2. I have Coral Rose and Pink-e Promise. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Coral Rose layers so well with many of my lipsticks. The combination I haven't got enough of is Coral Rose over Chanel La Favorite Rouge Allure Velvet. The coral fiend in me feels like zooming around the house a little whenever I wear this combo!

  3. I seriously like all of those shades! I still have to explore the LMdB lip products but already have a small wishlist ;) TF Narcissist looks beautiful on you, love that colour! / Claire

  4. Thanks for the great post! Would you be able to swatch Pink Berry next to Fraise Creme for us? 0:-)

  5. Coral Rose so pretty and looks even prettier on you. :)

  6. I love Pink Berry in the swatch. I wish it was more pigmented on the lips. I would die for a pigmented lip stick that color.

  7. totally in love with Pink Berry Lip Creme & Coral Rose. I cannot wait these are released for the European market

  8. Love the last one. Such a fresh, complexion-brightening pink.

  9. Wow. I wish I looked that good in a cool-toned Barbie-pink. It is seriously amazing on you!

  10. Pink Berry is like holy gorgeous. But kind of reminds me of food. So I kind of want to eat it.



  11. Pink Berry is so gorgeous! The shimmer in it looks so pretty. All of them are absolutely gorgeous though and work so well on your skin tone!
