Review: Le Métier de Beauté Eyeshadows

posted on: 12.24.2012

Le Métier de Beauté True Color Eyeshadows retail for $30 each for 3.8 grams of product. This is obviously a luxury beauty brand, which is reflected in the price. These eyeshadows are described as "weightless, true-to-color pigments" with "adjustable coverage, transparency, and intensity." There are three textures that are available: matte, satin, and shimmer. The two eyeshadows I received from LMdB are Lapis (shimmer) and Fig (shimmer). The shimmer texture is described as "a refined, pearl-like texture offering full coverage with maximum sheen." Lapis is a nice, bold cobalt blue, and Fig is appropriately named, being a fig-like burgundy shade.

The pigmentation of Fig is great. The texture of the shadow is smooth and buttery, and applies great. A little bit goes a long way with this shadow. Lapis, on the other hand, was a complete disappointment. Looking at the shadow in the pan, I had high expectations. The swatch you see above was me applying over six layers of Lapis to try and get a true-to-color swatch. Which clearly didn't happen. Lapis is very sheer, and based on the description of a shimmer texture shadow for LMdB, is basically unacceptable. I would not pay $30 for it. I wouldn't necessarily pay $30 for Fig either, because it isn't the most unique shade. But the quality of Fig is really great, so if you are looking to spend $30 on a single eyeshadow, then go for it.

Based on these two shadows, I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to purchase more LMdB eyeshadows because I just wasn't impressed. Fig was a great shade to work with, but Lapis was a disaster. I really wish Lapis was more pigmented, because the color itself is a stunner. I am curious to see how the matte and satin LMdB shadows would fare against these two shimmer shadows, but I'm not exactly willing to shell out the money to try them out based on these two shadows. If you're in the market for a luxury eyeshadow and don't mind the $30 price tag, then go for Fig, but definitely skip Lapis. It's not worth it! Le Métier de Beauté is a pretty solid luxury brand though, so don't let these deter you from checking the brand out as a whole.
