My Le Métier de Beauté Cosmetics makeover

Part of being a beauty blogger means educating thyself. I mean, yeah…I could only showcase the saaaaaame products and brands year after year but what fun is that? I like sharing new innovations and new products and brands that you may not have ever heard of. Like the brand Le Métier de Beauté Cosmetics.

I know, I know. You’re probably like, “Seriously B…is this a French brand or something?” Actually no, it’s not. This brand sits stateside at the counters of Neiman Marcus and online for those who don’t have a Neiman in their area. I first heard about this brand when I attended that fabulous Beauty Blogger Bunch a few months back. Le Métier de Beauté and I have gotten more acquainted and I am so excited to share my findings (and makeover) with you guys and gals.

Le Métier de Beauté (which in French translates to to “the craft of beauty”) is a luxurious skincare and makeup brand that has found its place in the beauty world for a good 5 years or so. The brand was founded on 3 core principles: craft, design and quality. It’s a brand that if you see at a counter, you are instantly drawn too because their products are not only eye-catching but diverse as well. And by diverse, I mean you’ll see color, color and more color. This is such a rarity in higher-end brands. And call me nutty, but I didn’t know that Le Métier de Beauté did spa treatments.

Yes darling, special masks and peels can be done in right in a nice and secluded section of the mall. I was actually going to get a peel but when my specialist noticed my baby bump, she thought that a makeover would be a better fit. And you know I wasn’t complaining about that. Speaking of my specialist…Irina was wonderful. She talked about each product in depth as she applied it to my face. Le Métier de Beauté didn’t appear to have a wide selection of brown-girl friendly foundations available, but Irina did a grand job at mixing up a lil’ somethin’.

She told me about the beautiful liners…

The kaleidoscope eyeshadows (love these!).

And the mascara…

The mascara, by the way, has a clear tube so you can actually see when you’re running out of product. Now why didn’t I think of this?

I’ll be a giving a closer look at some of these products later but I can say that their performances lasted beautifully in that 80 degree weather we had the other day. And the finished look?

I look like a straight up news reporter with wonky hair in that last pic, uh? Either way, Irina impressed me and that is hard to do with a beauty blogger. I’m not always a fan of people doing my makeup but I could totally go back to Irina any day. Her and fellow counter-mate Melissa were wonderful.

Stay tuned for more information about this brand! Have any of y’all heard about Le Métier de Beauté Cosmetics?

ETA: Although I wasn’t able to experience the CHEM60 Pro-Peel & GLOW10ai Mask Set due to my being pregnant, many of my fellow beauty blogger sisters and had raving reviews about it. It is finally available for purchase at Neiman Marcus counters and at NeimanMarcus.com. It’s a bit pricey at $265 but it lasts for quite some times and hey, skincare is worth the investment, isn’t it? :cool:

  • msfarrah

    I heard about this brand from another blogger, but never really saw any swaps of it before. You look great!! What color is the gloss?

    • Brittany

      I can’t remember. Eek! I know, I suck. I’ll have more deets on Le Metier de Beaute products. I promise.

  • victoria

    Wow, stunning!

    I haven’t heard much about them other than they aren’t Black Girl Friendly. But you look absolutely stunning!

    • Brittany

      Thanks mama! Yeah, I didn’t think they’d be black girl friendly either but I was impressed!

    LMdB lip glosses and lipsticks are Black Girl Friendly and among my faves. I especially love their eye-shadows. The colors are unique, and highly saturated, which means the colors really show up beautifully on women of color instead of going ashy. The colors you’re wearing are great! which are they? The kaleidoscopes are brilliant for travel. I love the face kit: I can swing out the “trays” quickly when I’m in a hurry, and my eye-shadow base, highlighter, and blusher, bronzer/contour product are all in one place. The products in the face kit are not dark enough for those of us with complexions darker than medium. I bought mine a few years ago; the regional manager at the time was willing to replace the finishing powder which was too light for me, with an eye shadow base I preferred. I have suggested to LMdB that they make customizable kaleidoscopes one of the line’s permanent features, but they haven’t taken my advice yet! ;) It would be great if they would also make at least one darker shade of their star project, Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Tinted Treatment.

    • Brittany

      I can’t remember any of the products that were used. I’m so so sorry. And yeah, those kaleidoscopes are some kind of cool. Customizable kaleidoscopes would be amaziiiiiiing!

    You look awesome :) Love that purple on you.

    • Brittany

      Thanks lovely. I always forget how great purple eyeshadow is.

  • Caitlin

    I agree with lots of others here: that eye makeup is perfect on you. They really did a good job giving you purple that doesn’t make you look 14!
