Ohhh!!! I have so much to share with you and get you caught up on! I better get right on it!
First up, I want to finish talking about my Le Metier De Beaute makeover session. After finishing the CHEM60 Pro-Peel and the GLOW10ai Mask, which I reviewed here, my skin was ready to go. Out to the counter we went…
Le Metier de Beaute has a large variety of shades from their foundations, to cheek colors to shadows. I left it up to my Le Metier de Beaute specialist, Irina. what would work for me.
To start, she used their Tinted Moisturizer which has an SPF 15. Sounds like it is starting off on a good foot! Irina explained that this would give my skin a dewy look that would flatter all the other products she was going to use. After the moisturizer was allowed to set, she next applied the foundation, Classic Flawless Finish Foundation. I am shade #02. This foundation is quite different from any other foundation I have used. It has technology that allows the product to move along with my natural skin movements. This keeps the foundation from settling into my fine lines and allows it to stay smooth, yet truly flawless. Even still, the foundation felt light and not thick at all.
Irina felt I only needed concealer to highlight my brow bones and to dab a bit on the tops of my cheeks to give another highlight. The Classic Flawless Finish Concealer comes in 12 shades and I am #02. She used her fingertip to lightly pat the concealer into place.
Using Brow Bound Eyebrow Pencil, Irina gave my growing-out brows a true makeover. Picking Natural Blonde as my shade, she defined and shaped my brows into lovely frames above my eyes.
Now we moved onto the eye look! I was excited to see what Irina would choose. First, she used an eye pencil, Dualistic Eye Pencil, to create a base for the powder shadows to come. Dualistic Eye Pencils come in 4 versatile shades. Irina picked Noir (an inky black) to line my eyes. These pencils are smooth as ice. It didn’t tug or pull on my lids. I told Irina that it actually felt cool on my skin.
Next, she had 32 shadows, called True Color, to pick from. And all are very pigmented and silky. The colors she picked for me were: Noir (a deep, inky black), Alexandrite (a light, reddish-plum) and Innocence (a delicate, soft pink). All three worked to make my eyes pop! But, she still hadn’t done the liner or mascara yet.
Dualistic Eye Pencil, in Noir, was used again. It was nice to use an eye pencil that felt so soft I could hardly feel anything being applied. But, it was there because these eye pencils are intense. After lining my eyes to perfection, Irina then went over the top line with Alexandrite shadow to put a hint of purple into it.
Mascara came next. Irina picked the most awesome shade called Aubergine. These shade made all the green in my eyes shout out in full bloom. Anamorphic Lash Mascara is beyond creamy. This mascara has no clumping and my lashes stayed soft even after the mascara dried. Just like all of the other Le Metier de Beaute products, Anamorphic Lash Mascara is preservative free. The mascara has a very special form of beeswax that builds and lengthens the lash, yet keeps it moisturized.
After the eyes, I got to blush. Radiance Powder Rouge comes in 4 shades and I liked them all. Irina narrowed down to using Fresh. This powder is triple-milled so that it is the finest powder on the market. The rouge blended softly and perfectly onto the apples of my cheeks. Last was the finale of lips. To maintain the balance of colors on my eyes, Irina stayed to a soft look. She used a lip liner named Rouge and followed that with Colour Core Moisturize Stain Lipstick in Ibiza, a soft, pinky champagne shade. When I say that this lip stain was soft, I’m very serious. It contains jojoba, lanolin and shea butter. Not one thing about this lipstick was dry, sticky or dull. I didn’t need any gloss over the lipstick.
The photo shoot was all that wrapped up this decant experience…
My final thoughts…I didn’t care for the Tinted Moisturizer as I felt it left my skin too shiny. I like more of a sheen or semi-matte look. I thought that the shades were not going to be too pigmented on me because I hardly felt them going on. But, as you can see, there are vibrant colors in my makeup. My very favorite item is the Anamorphic Lash Mascara in Aubergine. This is a fig-purple shade that brought out the green in my brown-green eyes. And my second favorite is the eyeliner, Dualistic Eye Pencil. It was so creamy, but so pigmented. I liked that it stated put.
Le Metier de Beaute Skincare is top-notch. I would have to go to a dermatologist to get anything stronger. Le Metier de Beaute not only makes it easier for me to do my own peel and mask but makes it quite affordable compared to a doctor’s visit. Le Metier de Beaute Cosmetics are very top line. Each product I experienced lived up to its claim. I am thoroughly impressed with the entire product line and with the expert knowledge that Irina at Neiman Marcus provided.
