Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme in Catherine and Bloom

Le Metier de Beaute has two new lip cremes exclusive to Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills. They are lovely nudes called Catherine and Bloom.

What Le Metier de Beaute have to say about lip cremes…

Combines the best qualities of our lipsticks and glosses for an alluring blend of rich shine and creamy texture to envelope the lips in a beautiful, feather-light sheen. Buildable silky, ultra-lightweight color, in a unique moisture-infusing crème formula for delicious, smooth and creamy long-wearing coverage. Enriched to soothe and nourish the lips with healthful Vanilla Extract and Vitamins A, C, and E anti-oxidants. For use alone or in combination with other crèmes—or a lipstick for an added emphasis to your pout.

Catherine Lip Creme

Le Metier de Beaute Catherine Lip Creme

Catherine is the sparklier of the two. It is nude with just a hint of pink with very fine micro glitters in silver and gold. I think I saw something like rose gold in it too but do not quote me on that. Because of these micro glitters, at first swipe you’ll get an impression that it’s frosted but once blended in the lip you actually get a nice finish. Because of the shade, it is not highly pigmented nor opaque. It is kind of like my lips but better nude shade. What’s great about this shade is that it does not wash me out like most nudes.

It is creamy and hydrating. The product doesn’t settle onto lines. It might have glitters in it but you can’t feel it. There is that signature vanilla scent that lip cremes have and this is no different, in fact I think while the intensity is about the same, I think in this two shades it lingers on just a tad longer than usual. That didn’t bother me because while I vanilla scents give me a headache in general this one is actually pleasant so I do not mind.

I love both lip cremes featured in this post. I love Catherine because while it is nude, it provides that extra dimension to make my lips look fuller and noticeable. Perfect to compliment any strong eye look like a smoky eye.

Bloom Lip Cream

Le Metier de Beaute Bloom Lip Creme

Bloom is another nude with just a hint of pink without any glitters. It is not flat as there is a shine to it. It is creamy in texture and hydrating.

Le Metier de Beaute Bloom Lip Creme

When swatched in my arm, it is difficult for me to show the color as it can blend in with my skin. The picture below is taken under direct late afternoon sun just to show you the color. This would be perfect for somebody lighter than me.

Le Metier de Beaute Bloom Lip Creme

I did take a couple of photos in different environments just to show you what it could look like. Bloom can be build-able to make it as opaque as possible but this is as far as I would like to go. I’ve applied it to a semi-sheer effect. What I like about Bloom is that it is a nice alternative to Catherine if you are not feeling the slight sparkle. Again, perfect for a strong eye look like the smoky eye.

To sum it all up, while sold separately, these two NUDE lip cremes is my perfect compliment to any strong eye look. I think there are a lot of choices when it comes to nude lipsticks but not so much when it comes to a lip gloss/lip creme formula. I’ve been looking for a nude that will not wash me out or be just another gloss that doesn’t do much to the lips. Catherine and Bloom gives me an even polished lips that doesn’t pull too much attention from everything else. I just wish that it was easy to photograph. Because of the product being nude and of my NC30/medium skin tone and a lot of other factors it was just not the most “photogenic”.
