Le Métier de Beaute Haute House Hues Lip Crème Duo in Tickled Pinks

Each season Neiman Marcus fashion director, Ken Downing partners with Le Métier de Beaute to create a small beauty collection. This spring, NM introduced the Haute House Hues Collection which includes the Tickled Pinks Lip Crème Lip Gloss Duo ($65) in Mum's the Word and Two Lips. This collection is limited edition and exclusive to Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. I do have to agree with Mr. Downing, these colors are great for spring! One is soft and simple, the other bright and fun. Both Lip Crèmes are super pigmented, one with a touch of sheen and the other a creamy finish. They are almost like liquid lipsticks, not shiny like a gloss would be; they give a satiny creamy finish.

Two Lips is a pale peach with subtle sheen. This color quite bright and opaque when first applied but once you blend into your lips, the color melts right in. I can see myself wearing this color more often that Mum’s the Word because it’s more of an everyday kind of shade.

Mum's the Word is a cool creamy bright pink. It’s a little scary looking in the packaging but when applied its actually quite beautiful. It can be applied heavily for a full on fuchsia lip or lightly applied for a bright stain. Also, if the color seems to overwhelming you could always mix a little of Two Lips with it to tone down the brightness. Either way you wear it, it’s a great color for spring/summer.
