I’m so sad that Le Metier is pulling out of the UK: Echo Blush is one of my all-time favourites and became one of my staple gifts for girlfriends – now I need to find the next holy grail blush to replace it. Although other bloggers have spoken to the counter staff at Selfridges who cite distribution problems as their reason for heading back to the US, it can in truth only be that they weren’t earning their keep on the cattlemarket Selfridges beauty floor. It was always a big ask to move from the cosiness of Liberty to the vast wilderness of Selfridges, but it’s a very great shame, nonetheless. So, if you have any last minute Le Metier items you want to stock up on, I’d suggest you do it now.
One of my favourite beauty items ever was the limited edition Le Metier/Roopal Patel palette (above) from 2009. I have it still, in pristine condition, as a benchmark of how beauty can really be done well.
