Is this worth buying?: I like the color myself, so I think it’s worth the purchase. I can say it’s a very cool pink, so it may not be for everyone. If you feel like the color isn’t for you, Poppy would probably be a better pick since it’s warmer (and a more universally flattering color). I’ll do a review for Poppy in the near future.
Le Metier de Beaute Mystique creme fresh tint
YAY! I finally got my hands on one of the new creme fresh tints that Le Metier de Beaute has released. They released three new shades: Coral Nymph, Ginger Lily, and Mystique. Right now they’re only sold at Nordstroms, but Bergdorf Goodman will have them soon. I didn’t get the two other shades, because they look really warm, maybe too warm for yours truly.
Color: Mystique is a very cool, bubblegum-like pink (it does have some lavender to it). It’s a gorgeous shade, but I can see how some people will steer clear from it, because it is a very cool pink. The online swatch it looks like a straight lavender, but of course, their color representations are a bit off. In the pot it has a very fine silver and pink micro shimmer and applied on my arm and cheek. The actual amount is not as much as Armani Blushing Fabric #1, but it’s definitely apparent. Just putting it out there in case shimmer is a factor in buying. Either way, it’s such a pretty color for the springtime. 🙂
Formula: These are slightly creamier than your Bobbi Brown pot rouges. Ok, the reason why I’m even comparing these is because the swatch I have for comparison is a Bobbi Brown pot rouge. I shouldn’t even compare the two because the creme fresh tint is such a nicer product. What makes the creme fresh tints so amazing is how blendable they are. I just glide my finger across the color and it just blends so well. Blending these are so effortless. Ok so a main question is “do they stay dewy? do they dry down?” Well, if you layer it on, it will stay dewy like in the photo below. If you blend it a bit with your finger, it does dry down. I adore the formula and it’s long lasting, but not drying at all. I can’t get over how nice it feels against my fingers. sigh, so delectable.
Size and Price: 5 grams (.17 oz), for $28

*note that Mystique has a sparkle that the camera didn’t pick up. My Canon has been on strike (anti-sparkle) phase as of recent.
