Le Metier de Beaute Corinthian Eyeshadow

August 10, 2010
It’s been a while since I’ve added anything to my Le Metier de Beaute collection, but raves and reviews from Josie and Gaia have peaked my interest. My newest discovery is their eyeshadow in Corinthian ($30) which I credit to Josie. (BTW have you checked out her new blog, The Eyes Have It?) Not having in-person access I had no idea what this looked like since there were no reviews or swatches online. She came across this at Bergdorf Goodman and e-mailed me that it was “the most beautiful taupe ever.” Immediately I was sold and ordered it online. It is indeed gorgeous. Complex, frosty, loaded with shimmer. It’s love. I can’t wait for her review and swatches to show up on her blog.

Here it is compared to some other Le Metier Eyeshadows Mulberry & Jojo. Also compared to MAC Satin Taupe and Bobbi Brown Brown Stone Metallic. No dupes in my opinion. The particles in Corinthian are so complex with silvers and taupes, swatches and photos cannot capture how beautiful it is.

  • Sabrina,
    You always seem to get me to try things outside of my beauty radar, albeit pricier but always a good investment. I may have to check this out when I go to Bergdorf's next month.

  • Okay, so this is my second time looking at this post. I had to keep coming back to look at the taupes. I have to tell you, you are making it very difficult to hang onto my money after payday. I'm going to New York in October and my list of things to get is getting longer and longer!
