Per request, here are the close ups and swatches of the Le Metier de Beaute Eyeshadows that I own. Note that these are the shades that are available for purchase individually (all kits that contain limited colors have been excluded, also by request). These swatches aren’t the best – so I highly recommend you do your own research to get a better idea of what these will look like. I find most of the shades apply true to what you see in the compact. Those who are critical of my lack of diversity in color selection, note that ALL of these were purchased sight unseen so I had no idea what I was going to get at the time I ordered these throughout the past year and a half. I have to say given the fact that I did not have immediate access to see these in person, I am very pleased with what arrived.
I have been to an actual counter on three occasions (Beverly Hills twice and San Francisco once). Unfortunately in my excitement I neglected to check out the shadows in detail as I was more focused on the lip items.
So onto the shades. The colors in the Persephone Eye Kit (Rose Champagne, Canvas, Sequoia and Alexandrite), also available individually, have already been featured. Check out my review here for those close ups and swatches.
Swatched over slightly moisturized skin:
Without flash, outdoors with slightly cloudy lighting:
Bordeaux v Alexandrite
Innocence* (note that this is the original Innocence, I have been told that there is a new version which is deeper and more dramatic as you can see in the photo Panties from MUA provided me here)
I’ve reviewed a number of these shades in detail on previous posts. Use the Le Metier tag below to search through the archives. All are extremely high quality and rich in pigment and super easy to blend and layer. They have a gorgeous glowing quality when mixed together give a sophisticated eye.
These currently retail for $30 each and come in a small black mirrored compact. Bergdorfs is having their $25 off $100 gift card event starting tomorrow. As far as I know there is no other promotion going on with the counter and standard shipping is around $12ish. Neimans still also has some Beauty Week gifts going on to tomorrow. You might want to inquire into your local Neimans to see if they carry this line and if they have any GWPs left. Instore usually has more inventory than online.
