By now, Le Métier de Beauté's seasonal collaboration with NM Fashion Director Ken Downing should be old news to you. This spring's offering is titled Tickled Pinks and made up of a curated set of two lip glosses (Two Lips and Mum's the Word) and a hot pink nail lacquer (Snapdragon). I shied away from Snapdragon because it looked really similar to Solar Flare from the main spring collection, though Snapdragon is just a tinge redder.
I'm a little confused as to why this set is called Tickled Pinks, considering half of it is... not. I don't think Two Lips can be passed as even a light pink. To my eye, it's all peach.

Both Two Lips and Mum's the Word feature the lip crème formula, which I love. I did find that at first use, the texture of the crèmes are a little heavier than what I'm used to, but I think it's just a matter of a couple more uses for the formula to become "normal." LMdB lip crèmes feature a heavy burnt caramel vanilla scent that I fortunately enjoy - it's like having creme brulée on your lips for a few minutes!
