While Le Metier de Beaute's fabulous line of cream blushes has three new additions as you can see on Best Things In Beauty (I already know I'll need the two deeper ones), today we're talking about one of the original shades, Poppy.
I bought Tenne almost the second it was released and I wear it enough to almost consider a backup, though I don't believe in stocking up on makeup- there's so much of it out there and new gorgeous items keep coming out almost daily, so why get stuck with yesteryear's colors? Poppy scared me at first- look how bright it is in the pan, but since both Nikki and Dustin from Le Metier de Beaute's Bergdorf counter used it on me repeatedly and showed me how pretty and natural it can look with the right application I ended up succumbing and buying it. They were right, of course (seriously, never doubt Dustin).
Poppy is a warm pink with something of a peach undertone and can be sheered to your heart desire or worn more heavily if you have the skin tone to support it. The Creme Fresh Tints are not sticky or tacky, feel feather-light and stay put the whole day over a prepped, primed and foundationed skin. As far as application goes, I've tried everything and it works no matter what- fingers, flat top brush, skunks, small round natural bristles, synthetic ones- you name it. This blush is one of the very best you can find.
Bottom Line: Get it while you can.
Le Metier de Beaute Poppy Creme Fresh Tint ($28) is available from Bergdorf Goodman and select Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom locations as well as online.
