Le Metier de Beaute Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss (Bali)

Bali was a love at first sight, even before I actually tried it. I just looked at this shimmery red and knew we were meant to be. I originally thought that such a rich red would be an evening color, but this Le Metier de Beaute lip gloss from their Sheer Brilliance range is, indeed, very sheer. It's quite pigmented, don't get me wrong, and if your lips are pale it would look much more dramatic. But my lips are naturally on the dark rose side, so the Sheer Brilliance glosses look very tame on me. The shimmer is much more subdued outside of the tube and should not scare anyone. The gloss is shiny and luminous but not metallic or glittery.

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.


  1. That color looks really lovely. Do you think it would pair well with the LMDB lipstick in Madaket that you reviewed a couple of weeks ago?

  2. I love this. I must have it. You have great taste Gaia.

  3. OH MAN!! I have got to get this one to go with the 6 others i have. haha. must continue to feed the addiction. ;-)

  4. I was sooo disappointed last week : I had a trip to London and went to Liberty to buy som LMDB - the only place you can get it in Europe. But they are obviusly closing down the boot, there were hardly any products anymore. Sigh...
