At the height of summer, I got my first taste of Le Métier de Beauté‘s fabulous Créme Fresh Tint, the beautiful Coral Nymph. Even with the amount of blushes I own, Coral Nymph belongs to one of the most-used privilege club. I enjoyed it all the way till the beginning of autumn, and then the bleak light reminded me it’s time to temporarily move on to a more subdued color… So I picked up Le Métier de Beauté Tenné Créme Fresh Tint.
Le Métier de Beauté Créme Fresh Tints come in a sleek and simple black pot. It is slightly rubberized, but luckily it doesn’t seem to pick up fingerprints and dust too easily.
Tenné is a dusty rose. I am quite surprised by this color, as it is fairly neutral and doesn’t pull obviously warm on me (the majority of lipsticks and blushes do. It’s a bit frustrating to see a bright blue red on someone else turns into something not so bright and not so blue-based on myself). The texture, as I’ve said before, makes every other cream blush I’ve tried seem overrated. It is not heavy or greasy, and it can be blended out easily. I usually gently dab a clean finger in and make two to three dots along my cheekbones for each cheek before blending it out (with Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush). It really melts into the skin to both look and feel like skin. You won’t have a layer of product sitting on top of your skin, for this cream blush becomes one with it.
Le Métier de Beauté Créme Fresh Tints do not make my skin oily. They have great lasting power, and they never become dull on my cheeks. I have tried it on my lips and found it non-drying, though as a principle I avoid using anything in a pot on my lips.
I have used Le Métier de Beauté Tenné Créme Fresh Tint several times, but the pictures in which you see it best are still my Elie Saab runway-inspired look. I used it for both my cheeks and lips here:
Bottom line: Besides the amazing formula, Le Métier de Beauté Tenné Créme Fresh Tint is an easygoing color that is great for the season. If you are a fan of cream blushes, I would strongly encourage you to take a look at Le Métier de Beauté’s Créme Fresh Tints. If you need more persuasion, I think the Créme Fresh Tints actually have a pretty friendly price tag. If you want to get to know Le Métier de Beauté, it might be a good place to start!
