Le Métier de Beauté Lip Creme in Red Velvet

I was fortunate to get a taste (literally) of the fabulous Neiman Marcus Beauty Event GWP from Le Métier de Beauté. If you've been waiting for a true red from the brand, consider it done. Here are pictures and swatches of Le Métier de Beauté Lip Creme in Red Velvet.

(Apologies for the lower picture/color quality. I could only grab these with my iPhone camera using shoddy department store lighting.)






Upon swatching, Red Velvet immediately reminded me of a certain Chanel red that was recently discontinued. I wanted to swatch them side by side for you, but unfortunately the Chanel counter did not have a tester I could use. I can't attest to Red Velvet's wear time as compared to Chanel Dragon, but I can definitely say the color and finish is very similar when worn on the lips. *update: my pal @ultimatemakeup tweeted me saying the lasting power is amazing and it leaves a lovely stain after. Now I can't wait to get my hands on it.

While beautiful (and should be considered in the permanent collection), unfortunately the lip creme does not taste like its namesake. It is completely scent and taste free, non-sticky, and as expected, a pleasure to wear. 

While the Neiman Marcus Beauty Event officially happens from February 23 to March 4, I was told you will be able to pre-sell the items you want as early as February 21. As always, if you don't have a Neiman Marcus near you, my lovely friends Traci Dastou and Shawn Kelly of Neiman Marcus Boston will be happy to help. You can reach them at 617-536-3660 x2111. Tell them I sent you and they'll be extra nice, I promise!

  5. That's a gorgeous color. Is it a limited edition GWP, or will it be part of the permanent brand?

    Also, do you know if the Jet Set collection, namely the lip glosses, are in stores yet? I can't find them online.

  13. Scent free and taste less sounds good to me. Hate it when lipstick tastes like chemicals.

    The color is gorgeous. Not everyone can pull off a red shade like this. But you wore it well.

  16. I think they created this color for you, MessyWands - you are one of the top beauty blogs that I refer my customers to if they want to see well-written reviews of cosmetics online! I think I'll start a petition to have a MessyWands Gloss or Creme with LMDB!! Thanks for a great review.

  18. Looking at this gorgeous red lip makes me want to go and put on a red lippie just because (I'm sitting in my house doing absolutely nothing lol). I LOVE it. It kills me that we don't have easy access to Le Metier here in Canada...do I need to come down there just to get in on this action!? Looks great, Xiao!
