I am so excited to bring you the first look at the brand new, exclusive to Tysons Galleria Neiman Marcus, Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme in Cebu. Why I have not received any press on this, found any press on this or seen any other blogs covering this exclusive lip creme is a travesty. This, my dear readers, is the ULTIMATE Pink lip gloss with golden shimmer that I have been looking for since Dior discontinued my addict lip gloss back over 15 years ago. This is the lip gloss color combination I keep trying to recreate with other glosses (and failing miserably at, I might add). This, beloved readers, IS the Pink Lip Gloss You have been looking for.
First, to understand the background of this lip creme, you really need to understand Lisa Corsino the creator of this color. Lisa is the Le Metier de Beaute Product Specialist at the Tysons Galleria Neiman Marcus. Lisa has many years of experience in cosmetics, but I believe her abilities and creativity has really flourished since she has been working with Le Metier de Beaute. Lisa is a stunning woman, with beautiful golden skin and almond shaped eyes. Her fine features are the perfect canvas to Le Metier de Beaute's fine cosmetics. She has beautiful long black hair and one of the nicest dispositions you will ever encounter from a Product specialist at Neiman Marcus. She is always positive and happy and she seems unflappable. Her color recommendations are always spot on and she is so incredibly helpful without being intimidating. She just makes you feel good about your purchases. It's really is a pleasure to have her at my local Neimans Counter.

About the exclusive Le Metier de Beaute Cebu Lip Creme, Lisa said,
"I was inspired to name Cebu Lip gloss from one of the 7,107 islands of the Philippines, particularly in the region where I'm from. It is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the Philippines. Cebu is known for it's modern city, countless white sand beaches, and historical sites. The Cebu lip gloss evokes the warmth and beauty of this exotic island."
Was she ever right. Sadly I have only visited the Philippines in photographs, but from what I have seen and read, this lip creme embodies the warmth and sunshine of this exotic location while also paying homage to the beautiful flora and fauna of the region.
As lip cremes go, Le Metier de Beaute lip cremes are wonderful. They are not overly sticky, but not too slippery either. They lie in that "Goldilocks Zone" I like to call it. Not too sticky, not too slippery, not too waxy, not too anything. it's Juuuuust Right! The color wears for a decent amount of time, but if you are drinking or eating you will want to touch up.
The color. Oh the color is divine. This is a sweet warm pink with a slight mixture of melon and fuchsia undertones that makes it perfect for so many different skin colors. I think the gold infused shimmer is what gives this lip creme depth and that chameleon like quality to work with so many different people. On me, The Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme in Cebu is a sweet almost cherub like pink with warm golden tones that gives it a level of sophistication perfect for a date or even to wear at the office. On someone darker this lip creme would provide that perfect pink metallic gold lip that shows off golden or olive skin so seductively!
