Yesterday, at a special event, my wonderful Le Métier de Beauté friends at Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie gave me a gift, Red Velvet Lip Crème. Red Velvet is slated to be the gift with a $125 purchase of Le Métier de Beauté during Neiman Marcus Beauty Event (February 23 to March 4). You can pre-order now.
Red Velvet looked very bright and very red to me (not usually my color), but I positioned myself in front of a mirror and applied it immediately. Wow - it's vibrant! I have to admit that I've never been comfortable with red lip color. That might change! Everyone who saw me after I applied it remarked on my fabulous look. Seriously! It was like night and day. I went from "Hey, great to see you" to "Your lip color is fabulous." I guess there's something to the red effect.
Even before the sun could rise in the morning sky today, I was outside taking photos of Red Velvet. Here are a few swatch photos to whet your appetite. I applied Red Velvet boldly. It's possible to apply it more sheerly, but I went for bold to show you the true color.
I see a bright, warm, glossy red. I've already played with Red Velvet Lip Crème enough to know that I can change the kapow effect with gloss. Gold gloss will tone it down a tad; silver will cool the color. Red Velvet may be the only true red I need. The color is long-lasting, and it feels great on my lips. You won't need lipstick underneath Le Métier de Beauté Red Velvet Lip Crème.
If you'd like to experience Red Velvet, make sure to place your pre-order soon. I suspect stock of this amazing gift with purchase will be depleted long before Beauty Event ends. If you don't have a local Neiman Marcus and want help, call Le Métier de Beauté specialist (and manager) Michael Reinhardt at Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie at (202) 966-9700, extension 2258. Make sure to ask for him.
