Le Metier De Beaute Cebu Lip Creme (pic heavy post)

I saw this tweet on my timeline and I was floored. I even googled “Cebu” to check if it meant anything other than the lovely city in the Philippines. It didn’t mean anything else besides that so I immediately called Kathy at the Neiman Marcus Tysons Galleria. She told me that the Cebu Lip Creme is a counter exclusive and is developed by the product specialist at NM Tysons, Lisa Corsino. Like myself, Lisa is also a Filipina. Although we came from different provinces, I know why she named it after her beautiful and historical hometown.

According to Lisa (via email)…

I am very excited to present Cebu Lip Creme, Le Metier de Beaute’s new lipgloss exclusive at Neiman Marcus Tysons Galleria.

I was inspired to name Cebu Lipgloss 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 lipgloss evokes the warmth and beauty of this exotic island.

It is a very lovely pink, right off the package I know I will love this color and I was right. It is the perfect shade of pink with bronze micro shimmers. For me, it applies very frosty but after a few seconds it settles down into this warm pinky glow on my lips. I’m not good at describing colors whether their are blue based, yellow based, etc etc etc so I will just show you pictures.

I have to say, this is my favorite lip color. I love my nudes, browny nudes, pinky nudes and I rarely wear pink but this shade with this particular shimmer it’s like it was custom-made for me. I love it!

NARS Makeup Event at Nordstroms Topanga

I made the appointment for this event at my local Nordies because I was at a fence on how to use the Ramatuelle Trio. I tried using all three shades on its own but I felt that it’s too light on me. So the MUA I was assigned with showed me a way to make it work with my skin tone. She  used a cream eyeshadow in Cayenne as base which makes the whole look warmer to suit me. Then topped it with the more opaque apricot shade on my crease and slightly above past it then blended it in. Sheer peach and the icy blue shade can be used alternately for inner corner corner and brow bone. She suggested a darker blue liner on my upper lash line to make my brown eye color pop and brown at the lower lash line. I really love Liberte as a blush, warm apricot perfect for the summer. She used Never Say Never on my lips which is too bright pink. To tone it down, she topped it with Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Tiber. I love the end result but I feel that I can dupe this shade with other products already in my collection.
