Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint in Poppy
Le Metier de Beaute Precision Liquid Eyeliner
Ok, I am one happy blogger – I’ve just come back from a Handpicked blogging event at Le Metier de Beaute in Liberty to see their new products and a few things coming for autumn. Now, a while back I blogged about their amazing credit card sized Le Petit Poudrier palettes that sadly were not destined to come to the UK…and now, thankfully, they are. Probably around the end of August and in colourways specially for the UK market. Whew, a brand that listens! Thanks Le Metier. So, other stand out products coming up are Creme Fresh Tints for lips and cheeks – my favourite? the peachy looking Poppy, and a really innovative little product that will have beauty bloggers aflutter – Magic Lustre Cream. It’s a clearish, almost Vaseline consistency – a little smoother and more fluid, maybe, that allows you to transform your eye or cheek powders into a gloss. Simply swatch your favourite shade (heavily) on your hand, swipe over a lick of Magic Lustre, and there you have a gorgeous gloss that you can brush onto your lips. Simple, but clever. Lastly, I was hugely impressed with their (not new) Precision Liquid Eyeliner, £20, designed in conjunction with a very well known (and desirable) pen company, the tip is like air on the skin, and those colours (Aqua, Bleu and Noir) don’t move from your lids for just about ever.
I know this brand is expensive, and it’s one of those rare cases when I can see exactly why and feel the prices are justified (nearly). I use Echo blush nearly every single day and it is showing no signs of disappearing: high pigments mean you don’t need to use much. It’s also handy that it is a more grown up dupe of Nars Orgasm – without the chunky glitter.
