Le Metier de Beaute's Color Core Moisture Stain Lipsticks are a rare breed...saturated color, smooth texture, minimal shine, lasting hydration and a lovely stain after hours of wear. Retailing for $32, these gems are available at high-end department stores, including Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman. Of course, I was drawn to two of the lightest pinks in the collection, Palm Springs and Miami and couldn't be happier with their effect.
Palm Springs is a light opaque pink with slightly lavender undertones. I have heard some describe it as a pink nude, but when I wear it, I don't detect any of the beige that I generally associate with nude colors. It has a slight frost that adds to its softness without looking garish.
This color is so versatile and flattering, that I have bought it for two different friends in the past year. One thing I find interesting is that while it does leave behind a stain after hours of wear, the stain is a lovely pale pink rather than the obnoxious hot pink that can sometime develop even with the most delicate of pink lipsticks!

Miami is a very light pink with slightly salmon undertones. It is very pale and has a fine yet perceptible shimmer that makes your lips look healthy and full. It has enough color to wear alone (I like to pair this with a smokey eye) but can also be used to lighten a darker lipstick or gloss, making it an exceptional multi-tasker.
Miami is a beautiful shade that lends to a soft and feminine look without overdoing the frost!
