Swatched: RMS Lip 2 Cheek in Demure & Le Métier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint in Poppy
It's been awhile since I've explored new cream cheek products, and I was really excited to try these two!
***All items purchased by me.
RMS Lip 2 Cheek in Demure, $36
Le Métier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint in Poppy, $28
As a cheek product I really love both of these!! They give that supremely natural flush of color that's really hard to find in a powder blush. They last through a majority of the day with only minor fading. When powdered, they actually manage to last until I take my makeup off at night! Both colors are buildable, though I don't think they ever look too intense (heavy swatches in the pics below are really piled on to show color & not what I actually wear). What I really love is that once applied, the colors manage to stay pretty true what you see in the pot - a rare feat because I tend to turn everything very warm.
Both textures are creamy, but not balmy. And they do melt - happened to me while taking these pictures - so be careful where you leave them!
The RMS in Demure has no shimmer. It also comes in a glass jar, which is a nice touch given the price!
The LMdB does have shimmer, but it's very subtle and serves more to give the cheeks a healthy glow.
Sunlight. Close up of LMdB in Poppy...the shimmer is not too visible.
While both of these are meant to be 2-in-1 lip & cheek products, I didn't test these on my lips because for some reason the colors didn't look that great. Has anyone out there tried these on the lips? What did you think?
Overall, I'm really happy with these products on my cheeks. They look beautiful, last throughout the day & have given my blush stash a much needed refresh!!
