A Cream Blush for the Season: Le Métier de Beauté Tenné Créme Fresh Tint

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!

What is your go-to autumn/winter blush? What is your favorite cream blush formula? Have you tried anything from Le Métier de Beauté?

      this is their cheapest product, and THE BEST cream blush i’ve ever used, Dani. Come over to the dark side!

      • Sunny

        I agree! Instead of feeling like grease paint, this becomes part of your skin!

    never heard of this brand before :)

    • Sunny

      You should really take a good look at Le Metier de Beate! I personally enjoy brands that have well-edited and executed line-ups. It’s hard to find a “dud” within this brand!

    Very nice blush. I’ve been using YSL CRÈME DE BLUSH and love those, but this one may be worth a try.

    • Sunny

      Oh I haven’t paid attention to those. I’ll look into them next time I’m around a counter!

      The Creme Fresh Tints have the best formula I’ve tried, and I hope you’ll like them too!

    • Sunny

      Oh we are. We’re helping you by introducing a great brand into your life!

    Well if I ever want a cream blush in the future I will definitely buy Poppy because that shade has my name written all over, lol! Love this shade on you, it’s so natural!

    • Sunny

      Hey Teri, you need some LMdB in your life!

    I do like you with your hair pulled back! I`m surprised how different the heavy swatch is from the blended swatch. Gorgeous either way though!

    • Sunny

      Thanks girly! The sheered out version can definitely be built up!

    Your make up is gorgeous here!!
    I’ve been dying to try le metier de beaute blushes! have heard too many good things about them..

    • Sunny

      Thanks Pamela! This is hands down the best cream blush formula I have tried. It’s not greasy or heavy at all!

  • http://mybeautysample.com/ Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Damn–I STILL want Coral Nymph and now Tenne has been added to the list. But the one I’ve been eyeing for a LONG time is Ginger Lily–still really want that but always seem to forget about it! :/

    • Sunny

      OOO I checked Ginger Lily out and it looks great too! You need to try one just to see how great the formula is!

  • http://mybeautyhoard.blogspot.sg/ Jacqueline

    I don’t have Tenne and now I want it. These are also my most well used cream blushes, I hope they will be adding more colours though, I’m dying to try a new shade.

    • Sunny

      I know what you mean! I’d love to see LMdB expanding the line!

  • http://projectswatch.blogspot.com Emi at Project Swatch

    I love this type of color – it’s a fantastic every day type shade. It’s great on you!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Emi! It’s great to have Tenne in my collection, as most blushes I own are pretty warm-toned.

  • http://www.beauty-reflections.com Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    I don’t remember seeing this colour before! It’s perfect! I love it! It looks really pretty on you!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Tracy! Tenne might not be as popular as Poppy, but it for sure is a natural and versatile shade!

    Hi Sunny!
    I am a newbie in using cream blusher. I still need to learn how to blend the color smoothly. I like the color of this LMDB cream blush, looking great!

    • Sunny

      These are so easy to use! I dip a clean finger in, dot it along my cheekbones a couple of times for each cheek before blending it out with the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush. It’s probably even faster than doing a powder blusher!

  • http://bronzerbunny.com Joyce (bronzerbunny)

    i was always curious about this shade! Perhaps I’ll have to pick it up! :)

    • Sunny

      I selfishly hope LMdB will expand the line, but even without them doing that I want everything they have!
