Ah, this brings back memories. Peche Creme was my first ever Le Metier de Beaute purchase. It was one of those spur of the moment decisions. I was placing an order for Splendid Frost and threw in Peche Creme... probably to reach free shipping.
I have to be honest. When it arrived, I wasn't all that impressed. I remember reading rave reviews about this being a magical wand and it turned out to be just a peach gloss with a very strong vanilla scent. What gives?
All I can say about that slip up is bad lighting isn't a friend to details (whereas Abercrombie & Fitch dressing rooms benefit greatly). Peche Creme is what I reach for when I'm trying for My Lips But Glossier And So Much Better But You Don't Quite Know Why. The secret, of course, is within the fine microsparkle that comes with the gloss. Observe:
Peche Creme on lips
Sweet Creme on lips
I inserted a picture of Sweet Creme so you can see the difference between the two. As a reminder, Peche Creme is a light peach gloss with microshimmer, whereas Sweet Creme is a clear gloss with a hint of pink. Based on these pictures, dare I say Peche Creme makes Sweet Creme almost bland in comparison?
Definitely one of my top favorite of all the lip cremes.
As mentioned in previous posts, Le Metier de Beaute Lip Cremes are creamy, lightweight, and faintly sticky. They feature a heavy vanilla scent that initially put me off, but over time I've learned to enjoy it. Lip Cremes are as easy to apply as your typical doe foot swipe-and-go gloss. Peche Creme has a decent weartime of about 4-5 hours on my lips. They retail for $36 a pop.
For those who are just joining us, welcome to the Messy Wands weeklong Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme feature! I've already reviewed Creme de la Creme, Sweet Creme, and Creme Caramel. Please stay tuned for swatches of the other two I have left in my arsenal (Fraise Creme and Cocoa Creme). Also, I will have a special Lip Creme tutorial slated for this weekend. I hope you enjoy!
