Review: Le Metier de Beaute Hydra Creme Lipstick in Cashmere

I found out about many different beauty brands since I became a beauty blogger. If there’s one thing I want to do, I’d want to try at least one product from as many brands as I can. Foundations are tricky because I’m fussy about shade match, I have too many eye shadows, so that leaves lipsticks and blushes. I prefer lipsticks because how wrong can it be, right? Hhmmm… actually, things can go wrong with lipsticks too. I bought the Le Metier de Beaute Hydra Creme Lipstick in Cashmere off Beauty Bay some time back, together with the LMdB crease brush which I’ll talk about later.

The packaging of the lipstick actually reminds me of Clinique lipsticks but this is more hefty. Feels heavier and more solid and other than that, nothing much to talk about. I bought the shade Cashmere sight unseen after seeing it on RAEviewer, and I thought, since her skin tone is a little darker than mine, I shouldn’t look washed out right? Erm….

Before I show you how it looks on me, here are some comparison swatches of the nude lipsticks that I have. Comparatively, Cashmere looks even darker than Incognito. So, if Incognito looks great on, Cashmere should be even more pigmented. The texture of this lipstick is OK I guess. I don’t like it enough to wear it out. I just wipe it off after 10 minutes and apply something with more colour. First impression is that it goes on creamy, and I don’t think this formula will dry out my lips. It’s supposed to be moisturizing while delivering you opaque colour.

Here is how Cashmere looks on me. It might be the milky nude beige that is just not compatible with my skin tone, I don’t know. Maybe I’m wearing it all wrong! I think I just look really weird and washed out with Cashmere on. And here I am, trying my best to sport a pout without looking stupid 😛

I do wish it’s more pink beige, or even coral beige, instead of this milk beige that looks a little ashy against my more pigmented lips. If I didn’t wear darker eyes, I’d look sick 🙁 I’m quite disappointed I don’t like the shade I picked. I’d love to love this lipstick. I know I can make it work by applying a darker lip pencil as base. But that’s not the point. I want a lipstick to work on its own, if you know what I mean. What do you think of Cashmere?
