Not terribly long ago when I bought the Le Métier de Beauté- Ken Downing Lip & Nail Duo I'm Worn This Way Limited Edition set from the Bordeaux Collection (Fall/Winter 2011), I lamented the fact that once this gorgeous vampy lipstick was gone that I wouldn't have the opportunity to replace it. While I tend to be more of a gloss girl than a lipstick girl- I do have a penchant for a vampy lip.
This set met my criteria perfectly right down to the gorgeous nail polish in Vintage Vine.
Then one day as I sat daydreaming- it occurred to me that Le Métier de Beauté actually had a fairly good dupe for the I'm Worn This Way lipstick already! That was when I pulled Bali out to test my theory.Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipstick in Bali is an equally vampy shade, and it has the same sensational formula that is found in I'm Worn This Way. More importantly, it is part of the permanent collection making it far more accessible.
Bali meets all of the criteria for a long-lasting comfortable vampy lipstick that is unbelievably gorgeous, and perfectly on trend! Click to enlarge photos.
Overall assessment: Bali is an extraordinary choice for those looking for a gorgeous vampy shade of the highest possible quality. For those of you who have been dying to find a close dupe for I'm Worn This Way- you need look no further.
Le Métier de Beauté Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipsticks are $32.00 0.13 oz.
