From Creme de la Creme, we move on to the other two sheerer (dessert) shades, Sweet Creme and Creme Caramel.
Sweet Creme swatched
As you can see from the swatch, Sweet Creme is basically a clear gloss with just the slightest hint of pink in it. Again, something I probably wouldn't pick up based on the swatch alone. Yet, this is the shade Dustin thinks everyone should own. Sweet Creme adds warmth when layered over another lip color.
The next, Creme Caramel, is a crowd pleaser. Like Creme de la Creme, Creme Caramel brightens and softens the color beneath it. The added bonus to this color is, and I quote Dustin, that it "goes with anyone."
Creme Caramel swatched
In my opinion, Creme Caramel is the most aptly named lip creme in the lineup. The color, accompanied by the vanilla scent common to LMdB lip cremes, reminds me of creme brulee. Creme Caramel is beige-gold and has a metallic gleam when applied to the lips. In the photo below I applied a thin layer of Creme Caramel and sheered it out on my lips, but you could easily build it up to achieve a foil-like effect.
As mentioned, 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. Sweet Creme and Creme Caramel have a decent weartime of about 4-5 hours on my lips. They retail for $36 a pop.
