Le Métier de Beauté Beauty Vault VIP March 2015

I actually got this up on time, ish! Go me. If you’re new, the Beauty Vault VIP is an annual beauty subscription by Le Métier de Beauté that’s on its second year. Each month’s box “costs” about $30, which is a pretty good deal considering LMdB’s usual price point which, let’s face it, is sky-high. I haven’t bought any new makeup items this year (so far), and I think my desire for new makeup is curbed in part by these monthly arrivals. 🙂 I’m pretty happy with the March box, which is a set of what looks like to be one Lip Crème and one Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss. I am a fan of both, so I’m on board this train. It’s been met with lukewarm reviews, from the BVVIP forum I frequent, and though I’ve yet to wear these shades in particular, both of these lip gloss formulas are two of the few I do like anyway.

Quickie: Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crème in Crème de la Crème

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. …

Live in Layers with Le Métier de Beauté’s Lip Crèmes

Alliteration forever! Obviously. So. These things. These things are amazing. The Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crèmes are lipstick/gloss hybrids, which means that they are a little thicker than glosses and pretty much have the pigmentation of lipsticks, but they come in a liquid formula. I think that’s sort of similar to the concept of liquid lipsticks, although these come in a different finish and formula than those that I’ve tried (i.e. Revlon ColorStay Liquid Lipstick, Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait). These are also quite unique because they’re meant to be mixed together or layered over each other or other lop products. Which, when you think about it, is kind of like their eyeshadow technique, the couches de couleur, made popular by their Kaleidoscope Eye Kits. I have three lip crèmes, two of which are fairly recent acquisitions. Here are the swatches: Swatches, L-R: Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crèmes in Fraise Crème, Café Crème, and Crème Caramel These come in many other different colors, so it’s kind of hard to pick, but you can always …
