I wonder how many of you have noticed that the 30 days of lip colours project that started in May never really came to an end? :) Well now it has! Day 30 of 30 features one of the most cult, most luxurious lip colours I own by new and cult makeup brand Le Métier de Beauté.
Le Metier de Beaute is a new luxury brand of makeup that’s attaining cult status by being hard to get (only available at the higher end department stores like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman… and the like). No mere Sephora for this brand! And prices. Oh the prices!
I was smitten with the Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme after checking out a friend’s a while ago and Framboise Creme called out my name from across the seas “Paris! Paris! Buy meeeee!!” Never one to resist a siren’s call, I succumbed :P Ladies, I give you the Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme in Framboise Creme!
The LMdB lip creme is a cream lipstick not lip gloss. The texture is surprisingly a little thick which naturally surprised me somewhat. It also looks a little dry, nothing goopy like what you get in lip gloss.
They use a sponge tip doe foot applicator which I do not usually favour, but for this formula, it works. The stopper in the tube cleans the applicator well enough so the amount you get on the sponge applicator is more than enough to apply on both lips. You do not even need to dip again, because the texture is so smooth, and the colour is so intense.
Le Metier de Beaute Framboise Creme Lip Creme swatch
Here is the swatch. I said it was intense didn’t I? There is a high shine and gloss factor that absolutely does NOT wear off at all. I took this on a day’s trial and it was still there by evening, just about. Bear in mind, I had roast duck for lunch, where I let ‘er rip the meat off the bones, and through drinks and water etc. By the end of the day, I had a stain, that was still pretty. This is one seriously long lasting, amazing liquid lipstick.
Oh and the colour. Framboise Creme is a darkened red that is, I swear, wearable. If you love a red lipstick you have to look at this one. You can sheer it down if you like, but I’m not one to shy away from intense colour and pigment :) Its not that bright, I promise.
Also featuring: Inglot eyeshadows #467 DS and 434P , Canmake Cheek and Cheek blush #4
Framboise Creme is a deep red with gold shimmer that is surprisingly light on the lips and not drying at all despite my early misgivings. There is a bit of an almond scent when I apply it, but it dissipates quickly. Luckily, because I don’t like anything that smells of almonds.
There is a shine that some may find a bit bright for the day but which is beautiful for the evening. I like it at any time of the day. Its gorgeous and I’m glad I succumbed :)
In a nutshell
An intense cream lip colour that lasts all day. There is a bit of shimmer and shine but it isn’t tacky not glittery and it is lightweight and non drying on the lips. Framboise Creme is a gorgeous deep red that any lover of red lips has to get their hands on. Your collection is not complete with it!
Pros: Longlasting intense colour, Light texture, Non drying, Beautiful colour
Cons: Pricey, Unavailable in Malaysia at time of writing
I would love to pick up another shade but its hard to because I can’t find a store that stocks this that ships internationally. I might still pick up another some time. But I might also wait till they come out with more colours. The rest of the colours are too neutral, too nude and too safe for me. If I’m going to cough up US$36 for a lip colour, it better jolly well be special… like Framboise Creme! :)
And this, Ladies, concludes the 30 days of lip colours! Did you spot any you liked? :D
Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme retails at US$36 each. Find out more at www.lemetierdebeaute.com
