The last photo was taken under direct artificial light, so you see how red it can look. But once again- it depends on your coloring more than anything- they weren't kidding when they names the product "Sheer Gloss".
Like other Le Metier de Beaute lip products, this gloss wears very (Very!) comfortably. It actually feels almost like a balm even on dry lip days. It restores lost moisture to pruny lips and makes them look fuller. Another perk is the non-sticky texture that keeps the gloss where it needs to be and not on my hair (kissing cats though would transfer some color, as I quickly discovered).
As I said, I can wear Bali during the day and it adds just the right amount of perky color without looking all diva-like. It pairs well with neutral winter face as well as with a more intense eye makeup look. you can
Bottom line: Big love.
Le Metier de Beaute Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss ($30) is available from Bergdorf Goodman, where I bought it, as well as from Neiman Marcus both online and in store.
All photos by me and I get super cranky when I find them on other web sites that don't give me credit.
