The particular Lancôme Le Metallique Lipstick Takes Lip Gloss to another Level
With ’90s beauty trends back in full force, all things shimmery seem to be firmly put on everyone’s lips. But the new Lancô me Le Metallique lipsticks takes everything we love about 2016’s greatest lip looks (think everything from Pat McGrath glitter kits to Sigma Beauty holographic glosses ) straight into 2017 within a fresh, slightly unexpected way. The metallic lip lacquer is honestly a hybrid of the shiniest lip shine ever, but with all of the metal lipstick , minus the drying factor. (Because let’s end up being real, the latest liquid mattes, as much as we love all of them, can be drying sometimes. ) And although all thirteen shades of the Lancô me Le Metallique metallic water lipsticks, which we got to test before they release next month (I know, tough life), are the chicest combination of glitter, shimmer and sheen we’ve seen in a relatively good time— and don’t leave lips chapped in any way.
Some of other preferred lipsticks we’re bringing into 2017:

We know, we all know. A gloss that hydrates and drops serious colour payoff? Hard to believe, but we get it: We know simply hearing the word “gloss” can scare some of us matte fans off. When we unscrewed the top of the new Le Metallique lacquers, pulling out the flat, fluffy applicators and noticed that squishy noise, our “stickiness alarm” went away. Like, hair-glued-to-our-lips type of alarm. Several of our lip gloss-loving staffers instantly fell for the wand alone, citing they might practically use its precise cut to line their particular lips. Others were a bit skeptical of the color payoff— those would be Allure is matte-or-die crowd— but were pleasantly surprised at the buildability the particular lacquer has. Because while some of our favorite lip glosses are perfect to use over a lipstick, the pigments in this formula give a superserious color payoff. Now, depending on how dark the particular shade of the metallic lipstick is, one coat can provide lips a more sheer wash of color, but 2 helps the hue become more intense and opaque, with the almost heavy metal-like appearance. Regardless of how much you use, the outcome is undeniably all kinds of shimmery— some people even thought certainly one of our editors was trying out the holographic Unicorn Tears lip gloss instead.
And that other thing that will bugs us about both liquid lipstick and lips gloss? The dehydrated, chapped lips they can leave at the rear of. Thanks to ingredients like vitamin E and grapeseed oil, each emollients, the metallic lipsticks actually hydrates lips— plus yes, even in a Polar Vortex. The one downside? This transferred from our lips to our coffee cups, but that is certainly to be expected with this kind of formulation. (It’s not like every single product can do every single thing, obviously. )
With 13 different shades including a soft flower gold, a vibrant orange and a crystalline blue— not to mention metallic-themed names like Magnetic Mauve, Molten Magenta and Metal Nude— we can see this Instagram candy (we mean, lips glosses) selling out fast. They’re great on their own, split atop your favorite matte formula, or mixed together— specifically if you want that unicorn tears look.
The Lancô me Le Metallique lip glosses can be found starting January 1 for $22 exclusively on sephora. com and at Sephora stores.
