Can you believe it? I had never tried cream blush. I was intimidated in the same way liquid eyeliner and red lipstick once made me freeze with fear. Now, I am kicking myself that I didn’t give it a whirl sooner.
And of course, leave it to Le Métier de Beauté to do it right. I have Poppy and, while it is a gentle wash of color, I love the pop of bright pink it alludes to. When I use my fingers to initially apply to my apples, it looks really vibrant. But I use my Le Métier de Beauté Kabuki brush to blend it seemlessly into my complexion. The cream is actually very easy to use. The formula “relaxes” into the skin, staying on my skin for a good 4-6 hours. The main difference I find is the cream formula looks much more natural than a powder blush.
I have also used the Crème as a lip stain. There is so much moisture in it relative to other stains. The poppy looks great with a transparent gloss applied on top.
