Wine on the Vine


Wine on the Vine is such a flattering shade of berry. It is a light lipstick that can be layered to achieve a deeper color. I applied this lipstick with nothing underneath and it is SO moisturizing you don't even need a gloss over top. It wears a bit longer than average and leaves a nice stain behind as it drifts away.


Bodacious Bordeaux

Bodacious Bordeaux is a refined berry red, perfect to make your nails look exquisite and your confidence feel rich. I needed three thin coats for even application.


Overall, this is a solid duo, perfect for Fall or an evening out during any season. The packaging is eye catching and the products are amazing. After a year of buying and wearing their products, I've decided Le Metier de Beaute can do no wrong. You can quote me.
