After my foray into dark lip color (seen most recently in my Tom Ford Scarlet Rouge post), I felt lured into embracing a vampy lip for fall. Because I love the Le Metier de Beaute Color Core Moisture Stain formula, selecting Castelo, a wine, burgandy, brown, and red hybrid, was a natural choice.
The formula is just fantastic...light yet full coverage, moisturizing yet long lasting...I have been happy with every lipstick I have bought in this line. Castelo's deep tone is simply enchanting...I am just not sure if I can stray away from my usual pinks, peaches and nudes for too long ; )

And now for some Castelo on the lips...
Bottom Line: There is no denying that the Le Metier de Beaute Color Core Moisture Stain lipstick formula is remarkable...weightless, full coverage, satin finish and long wearing. Although Castelo is a gorgeous color in the tube and even on my wrist, it is a bit darker than I prefer on my own lips, however, if I had the fortitude to wear dark colors regularly, THIS would be my pick! Its beautiful vampy sheen is a perfect compliment for this season's rich hues.
