Beauty Wonkette's favorite lippie of the moment: LE METIER DE BEAUTE

When Island Def Jam Chairman Music Antonio “L.A” Reid launched his cosmetics line, Le Metier de Beaute Luxury Cosmetics, at Bergdorf Goodman's last October, Beauty Wonkette didn't pay much attention. Yes, yes, OF COURSE Beauty Wonkette can happily wander around the BG lower level for countless hours in a state of sheer euphoria, but seriously, what the hell does L.A. Reid know about cosmetics??? Beauty Wonkette looked at the guest list that was headlined by Eve and Mariah Carey. Neither lady has a look that Beauty Wonkette particularly wanted to emulate, and so, she found other ways to spend her money.

Now, so many (wasted) months later, Beauty Wonkette has finally tried Le Metier de Beaute's Colour Core Moisture Lip Stain. OHHHHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYY GOD !!! (The kerplunk you may have just heard was Beauty Wonkette hitting the floor in an absolute swoon.) WHAT is this stuff? Is it a stain? A moisturizer? It is (be still my heart) both! Billed as a brand new concept in lip stains, this one goes on with a sumptuous velvety texture, provides lasting moisture but creates that coveted “just-bitten” natural flush of a lip-stain. True and absolute perfection. Lip-loving moisturizers including jojoba, lanolin and shea butter keep lips soft and supple. It doesn't fade, smudge or feather but, unlike some other long wearing products, it's sensationally comfortable on the lips: the silky finish lasts. Oh, and did I mention that the colors are absolutely to die for?

Now, Beauty Wonkette must make up for all that lost time and head off to Bergdorf's and/or Neiman Marcus (I think those are the only places that carry the line as yet) and stock up. At $32 a tube, it isn't cheap, but nobody ever said perfection was cheap ;-)

* • Vibrant colour and sensational comfort
* • Soft, creamy formula won't fade, smudge or feather
* • Long-lasting silky finish


  1. Le Metier de Beaute is NOT LA Reid's cosmetics line, it is a line formed by a group of beauty industry insiders and includes some of the top make up artists and chemists in the beauty industry. LA Reid simply hosted an event at Bergdorf Goodman for the line in October.

  2. Beauty Wonkette is soooo embarassed. After I read your comment, I pulled out the original press release. I quote: "Joanna V. Austin, president of the recently introduced makeup line Le Métier de Beauté (and ironically a chemist’s daughter), has teamed up with makeup artist Justin Henry to create a line of luxurious foundations, lip glosses, lipsticks, powders, eye shadows and more." Thank you so much! I kept asking myself how the hell L.A. Reid came up with such an awesome line. DUH!
