My love of the Le Metier de Beaute Color Core Moisture Stain Lipstick is no secret from the lush pink of Palm Springs and Miami to the deep mystery of Castelo, this formula is so special. It is weightless yet full coverage after a couple of coats and keeps my lips hydrated all day. It also leaves a delightful stain behind after the initial application wears off.

I recently bought the shade Thailand to add to my growing collection. It is one of the remaining few pale shades in this line that I did not yet own! Thailand is a light mauve pink with nude undertones and a slight shimmer that somehow still offers relatively opaque coverage.

After two swipes, this lip color reaches maximum impact, simultaneously appearing glowy and creamy! I like the fact that this shade looks natural, yet polished...definitely a MLBB color.

Bottom Line: LMdB Thailand Color Core Moisture Stain Lipstick is unique to my massive lip color collection because it is an exceptional hybrid of pink, purple, mauve, nude, frost and cream. Tonally, it comes closest to By Terry Terrybly Nude 100 but has a completely different finish (if a lip color can be both a satin stain and an opaque cream, then this is it!). I like that it is neither too light nor too dark and is a perfect compliment to an otherwise simple color palette. It has had a permanent home in my purse since I purchased it!
