Le Metier de Beaute Ginger Lily Creme Fresh Tint

Le Metier de Beaute Ginger Lily Creme Fresh Tint ($28.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rosy peach. It’s not coral, and it’s not peach-pink. It’s predominantly peach, but there’s a natural pinkness to it that gives it a very fresh look and feel.  It looks a lot darker in the pot than it really is, so don’t let the pot color fool you. Le Metier de Beaute describes the formula as a cream-based, lightly tinted product that can be used on both cheeks and lips. It’s supposed to impart a “radiant glow” and can be used over bare skin or over makeup. The brand also says that it is water-resistant.

On cheeks, it imparts a natural sheen that’s fresh-faced without being shiny or oily-looking. The color is very subtle, and on deeper skin tones, I don’t think it would be so effective. On pale to light-medium skin tones, it would work well as a barely-there blusher to add some warmth and natural color. NARS Sex Appeal is much, much lighter. Chanel Espiegle is much more orange. MAC Brit Wit is cooler, less peach, more mauve. Urban Decay Score is pinker.  It wears for seven and a half hours on cheeks.  I liked applying this with a stippling brush best and blending with fingers.

On lips, it adds warmth, nearly opaque color, and a subtle sheen. It’s a cream finish, so it does settle into lip lines a bit, especially because the consistency is very slick and creamy–almost like a partially melted stick of butter. MAC Innocence, Beware! is pinker. MAC Naked Bliss is darker. MAC Naturally Eccentric is less pink. NARS Little Darling is lighter, less pink.  It wears for around three hours on lips.

I like it better as a cheek tint than as a lip tint, but for a product marketed to do both, it’s pretty good. It’s rare that a cheek/lip product is comfortable enough to wear on the lips without sliding off when applied to the cheeks, and Le Metier de Beaute straddles both with surprising talent.

As a cheek tint, it doesn’t feel sticky or greasing, despite having a natural sheen. It’s very, very soft and creamy, so it blends out easily. This particular shade is light enough that you could never overdo it, though there are darker shades available in the range, but it’s difficult to go overboard, just because the texture allows for easy blending.  As a lip tint, it looks and feels comfortable–it’s not too dry or chalky; this particular color may feel too light or wash out some complexions, but it’s a matter of tastes and preferences. It’s a pale beige nude–there’s no getting around that.

For $28, a product that actually serves both functions is very versatile! I'm surprised this didn't have a price tag, given the price point of Le Metier de Beaute. This color will work best on lighter complexions, because of its pale color overall.

    Sounds like this is the easier-to-use MUFE aqua creams.

  2. This is really lovely! I also would have expected it to be more expensive, but it’s a doable price for me.

  3. That’s a pretty colour! I wish the finish would have been creamier-looking though.

    I’ve been searching for a really soft cheek tint cream that wouldn’t bring out any redness. This looks like it might worth checking out. The only problem would be the ingredients, I’m sensitive to many used commonly in makeup and skincare. :/

    Your comment about the color is spot on, Christine. In fact, I have learnt about Ginger Lily from delicatehummingbird’s blog. She’s pale and the color shows up on her very natural and pretty. I really wish we could purchase LMdB products in Canada.

  6. So pretty! It looks great on your lips and your cheeks!

  7. Sally P.

    Love it! This may be my first Le Metier de Beate product!

    I’ve been eyeing this one for a while, but decided not to order it after all when it was temporarily sold out at Nordstrom. It really does look super gorgeous, though! =)

  9. This seems like it would be a lot rosier looking at the product! But it’s still pretty!

  10. Rachel

    It looks absolutely beautiful on cheeks! The price definitely makes it more tempting. haha

  11. TOTALLY in love with this, and your makeup!

  12. Such a pretty colour x

  13. Kat

    SO PRETTY. Why does it have to coast so much lol?!

  14. Wow, such a pretty color! It’s perfect for spring, and it is very reasonably priced for a LMdB product.

  15. That’s such a gorgeous color on you!

    this looks pretty and natural on you :D

    Oh! I love this! ^_^

  18. charlotte

    Are you going to review more shades of this? I love the sound of the formula but not this colour so much =]

  19. Violet

    This is actually very pretty, I was surprised when I clicked the cut. I love how opaque it is, but because the colour is so neutral, it doesn’t look over-powering. Gorgeous!
