Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint (Tenne)

I'm always amused to see how Sabrina from The Beauty Look Book and I are on the exact same makeup page, just with different shades. The other day she reviewed one of my newest blush loves-  Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tints. She's braver than me and has a more cooperative skin tone, so she got both colors- Poppy and Tenne. I can't do bright colors on my cheeks, especially not corals, so I only bought Tenne.

I love the versatility of cream blushes. They blend beautifully and give the most natural flush. Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tints have the perfect texture for the healthy glow look. The blush is creamy with a satin finish and sheer enough not to coat the skin but give it a good dose of color. It has absolutely no artificial looking shine, shimmer or glitter, so as long as you blend correctly and figure out how much color is good for you, this is the most fool-proof blush you can hope for.

I've been testing it over various foundations and it works with just about anything underneath, except mineral makeup in loose powder form. The germaphobe in me prefers applying it with a dense synthetic brush, but I admit it's easier and faster to get the desired result using your fingers. So I got over myself and  placed a pack of disinfecting wipes in my blush drawer.

The tints are supposed to also be used on your lips, but I can't pull it off. Between the texture and the color (Tenne is at least two shades lighter than my lips), it looks dry and chalky. The cream also settles right into the scar on my bottom lip, so for me it's a no go as a lip product.

Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tints ($28) are exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. I ordered it online from one of them (can't remember which).

  1. This looks gorgeous on you! I love how you described the texture and finish :) Will add this link to my post as well. Excellent review!

  2. I only use their creme blush on my lips, I would never put any colored creme on my cheeks - it's just not my thing. I love the texture, it's never dry or chalky, just perfect. Stays long, too. Sometimes I add a tiny touch of gloss to refresh the look. Thank you for your LMdB reviews.
