Steady my heart! When I saw the fantabulous Dustin Lujan from Le Métier de Beauté today at Nordstrom, he told me Nordstrom had just unwrapped new Crème Fresh Tints for Lips and Cheeks ($28). There are three colors, and they are all gorgeous. You guessed it - all three came home with me.
My photos were taken hastily the moment I got home. On the top row at left is the pink shade, Mystique. Ginger Lily is next to it (top right). Below is Coral Nymph. Blended out, all three shades work for me - and will work for you. Even if you think you can't wear Mystique when you look at it in the pot, you will see that it brightens the skin when blended. Coral Nymph blends into one of the prettiest corals I have ever seen on my skin. You can always count on Le Métier de Beauté for sheer perfection.
When Dustin did my makeup, he selected Ginger Lily for my cheeks. It adds a touch of neutral pink warmth to my face. I came home and just stared in the mirror. It looks so good I think I'm going to need one for my desk at work in addition to the one that will live in my bathroom.
Here is a swatch photo, taken in full sun. I applied each shade with my finger, and I did not blend the shades into my skin. They blend effortlessly, melting into the skin to flatter your complexion with long-lasting color.
I will show you each shade individually in the pot and blended in the next day or two. I'm just so deliriously happy with them, I wanted to "rush" this short feature into print. I haven't even had time to play with the Crème Fresh Tints on my lips because Dustin selected a new lipstick and lip gloss for me. I have a lot more to tell you about my visit with Dustin. I'll start tomorrow morning.
You can purchase Le Métier de Beauté at Bergdorf Goodman (where you can usually find Dustin), Neiman Marcus, and some Nordstrom stores (such as Pentagon City, where I was this afternoon). You will want to get your hands on at least one of these as soon as possible.
Update 3/14: Le Métier de Beauté said on Twitter that this is available only at select Nordstrom stores. So call ahead.
