This is a quick review of Le Metier de Beaute's Creme Fresh Tint for Lip and Cheeks in Mystique and Coral Nymph. The name says it all...designed as a creamy product that adds color to both the cheeks and lips, the versatility of this product is commendable. Retailing for $28, this multitasking wonder lends subtle flush and luminosity to the face and applies sheerly without becoming heavy.
I bought the Creme Fresh Tint in Mystique, a very cool pale pink and Coral Nymph, a creamy peach...in light of the fact that I always gravitate towards nudes, pinks and peaches, this selection is not much of a surprise. The consistency is smooth and creamy...almost like an opaque gel formula; it is not sticky or greasy and feels extremely light on the skin.

|Swatches in direct sunlight...their balance of opacity and sheerness is remarkable.|

I like applying the Creme Fresh Tint with my fingers...lately, I enjoy adding a bit of Mystique to the upper area of my cheekbones, almost like a highlighter. Coral Nymph over a bit of bronzer makes an excellent glowing blush and alone of the lips, it provides a perfect peachy sheen. I tried mixing Mystique with LMdB's Creme Gloss in Mum's the Word (reviewed HERE) and loved the pale purple outcome. I wouldn't likely wear Mystique alone on my lips right now, as it is extremely pale, but perhaps I will try this technique in the Winter when my skin lightens up a bit.
