I finally bit the bullet and got the Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crème in Crème de la Crème. It was what Dustin of LMdB recommended that Xiao of Messy Wands get as a first lip crème, which if you didn’t know is a heavier gloss. An extensive review of the line and the other shades I have (Crème Caramel, Café Crème, and Fraise Crème) can be found here.
Crème de la Crème is a pretty basic, milky shade, which is why I didn’t want to get it for a first experience. It looks nude, but it toned down my lips’ natural pigmentation, and it will function the same way over top of darker lip colors. I’ve worn it over Snoe Beauty’s Plum Crazy, a pretty vampy plum, over here:
The white base of Crème de la Crème pays off like a milky gloss, rather than opaquely, which accounts for the “muting” of bolder lip colors. It also has gold microglitter, which adds a nice sheen to the lips without overloading it with gritty glitter.
I think it’s quite nice paired with a smoky eye. 🙂 Lip Crèmes are $36 each, but they are seriously my favorite gloss formula. I am totally not a gloss person, but these by Le Métier de Beauté are just perfection. It’s not that I have an “okay” relationship with gloss now… I actually really enjoy wearing lip gloss now.
Le Métier de Beauté is cruelty-free.
