Le Metier de Beaute Ken's Korals KISSABLE KORAL Moisture Stain Lipstick & KONTAGIOUS KORAL Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

When FedEx arrived this afternoon, I hadn't planned on doing any more posts until tomorrow. Le Metier de Beaute Ken Downing's Koral Collection was inside... so I thought I'd get a head start on my pics and swatches for tomorrow, since I have the rehearsal dinner in the evening. I was BLOWN away by how beautiful the items looked and how WELL they applied!

Let's get started, shall we?
(Kissable Koral Moisture Lipstain, Kontagious Koral Nail Lacquer)

In this collection are 2 items - Kissable Koral Moisture Lipstain and Kontagious Koral Nail Lacquer. Both are a steamy shade of reddish coral, perfect for a hot summer day or a sultry evening.

Kissable Koral Moisture Lipstain applied smoothly, and left a nice stain after a few hours wear. It really does feel moisturizing. This is one of the few lipsticks I've owned that I don't feel like I NEED to have a gloss over it.

Kontagious Koral Nail Lacquer is a one coat wonder. It only took ONE coat on this three coat-aholic. I cannot WAIT to put this on my toes for the wedding this weekend.

I also plan on using the Moisture Lipstain. My whole makeup plan for Saturday needs redesigned to compliment this lipstick. So much for being prepared ;)

And, guess what? All of you MAC lovers out there that missed out on Hibiscus Lipstick from Surf, Baby! ... Kissable Koral is a dupe! When I put it on I thought it looked familiar, so I did a side by side comparison:
(L-R: MAC Hibiscus, LMdB Kissable Koral, MAC Cockney)

Hibiscus is perhaps half a shade lighter, but when I had them on my lips I couldn't tell the difference. The LMdB lippie is more expensive, but for lovers with a major lemming, it's a drop in the bucket ;) And probably less than what you'd pay on evil-Bay.

The Le Metier de Beaute Ken Downings's Koral Collection is a Neiman Marcus Exclusive and available right now on the website. The Kissable Koral Lipstick is $32 and the Kontagious Koral Nail Lacquer is $18.

Nice! My KK polish arrived early last week, but I haven't tried it on yet. Maybe tomorrow. The color looks beautiful on you, and now I wish I'd gotten the lipstick.

Piping in to comment that when I compared Le Metier's Riviera with Kissable Koral today at Neiman Marcus, there was absolutely no difference in color or texture. I even went outside into the daylight to confirm this. They offer a dupe in their own line!
