Sahara Hydra-Crème Lipstick by Le Métier de Beauté

Disclaimer:  I purchased this.
Le Métier de Beauté (LMdB) introduced their new Hydra-Crème lipstick formula a few months back, and today I've got Sahara to show you.  I picked up Sahara from one of the package deals on LMdB's Beauty Vault, and I can't say it's a color I would have veered towards on my own.  Described as a "sandy coral nude", shades like this can sometimes wash me out.  However, I'm happy to say that Sahara actually works well for me and doesn't leave me with that dreaded corpse look.

The formula is lovely - creamy, moisturizing, and nicely pigmented.  You can build up more color by applying in layers and I like the soft sheen finish.  I can get by with no lip balm on the days I wear Sahara, which is the mark of a moisturizing lipstick in my book.  Nor do my lips feel dry the day after, another good indication.  The formula is paraben free and does not contain mineral or animal derivatives.
Housed in a shiny silver ribbed case, I counted 15 different Hydra-Crème colors on the Neiman Marcus site.   I've got another one in Cashmere, which I'll be reviewing soon.  These retail for $25, which is on the pricier end, but I really like the formula and could see collecting more!

    1. I think the fact that it leans warm helps:-)
