Le Métier de Beauté Barrett Beauty Lip Crème

The John Barrett Salon is located at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. Last week, my wonderful friend Dustin Lujan was at the salon representing Le Métier de Beauté. Dustin is always looking for buried treasure. Sure enough, he found a stash of exclusive products that hadn't sold. He posted a few photos on Facebook, and I called him faster than you can say "Dustin."

One was this pretty Lip Crème named for John Barrett, world-famous hair stylist who knows quality makeup when he sees it. Some of you may know his connection to Le Métier de Beauté through the exclusive Nail Lacquer shades sold at his salon. I had no idea he had an exclusive Lip Crème.

Dustin described it for me, and I ordered it right away, along with a Kaleidoscope I'll show you as soon as I can get decent swatch photos. Yesterday was a washout for sunshine, even though we had been promised all-day full sun.

I was able to sneak in gloss photos, which I took in almost full sun. Late morning, I noticed sunshine and darted outside. The sun was peeking from behind the rolling clouds, and I got three momentary opportunities to snap photos. That was all it took.

Barrett Beauty is a very light peach. It has sparkles galore, giving it more punch than it has from its color. Le Métier de Beauté's Lip Crème is a hybrid between lip gloss and lipstick, combining chic color, intense emollients, and antioxidants to soothe and nourish. The long-lasting color offers plenty of shine, with a lacquer-sheen finish. The creamy texture glides on easily and stays put for a decent duration.

While Barrett Beauty won't set the world on fire for originality (few lip colors can), it's a beautiful shade that all Le Métier de Beauté collectors should consider. Dustin found other treasures as he checked out what was available at John Barrett. Give the salon a call at (212) 872-2714 for more information on Kaleidoscopes, lip kits (the credit-card-sized ones), and other finds.
