|Above: Le Metier de Beaute Hydra Creme Matte Lipstick in Cardinale.|
Le Metier de Beaute released its stellar Hydra Creme Lipstick formula (reviewed HERE) late last year and the new LE Matte version made its debut mere weeks ago. I have already shared the natural peachy-pink beauty of Amore in a recent video (found HERE) and now am excited to feature Cardinale, a bold, velvet red with cool leanings. Unscented, long lasting, endlessly moisturizing (especially for a matte formula!) and exceptionally smooth, wearing Cardinale is a lovely experience.
Kindly scroll on for a pictorial devoted to Cardinale, as well as the Bottom Line...
|Above: This swatch reveals the extreme opacity of Cardinale. It is velvety and light on the lips while providing full coverage in a single coat!|

Bottom Line: I have made no secret of my love of nude, pink and peach lip color; however, once in a while, a bright pop of color is a welcome departure from the status quo. One simply cannot go wrong with the Le Metier de Beaute Hydra Creme Matte formula...however, since the matte shades are limited edition, I suggest that red lip lovers snap up Cardinale while they still can! Up next...reviews of eye makeup from By Terry, Chanel, Surratt Beauty, my solutions for dry winter skin, some haircare discoveries, my latest Lime Crime acquisition and, of course, a video or two ; )
