Le Metier de Beaute Now @ Nordstrom

Le Metier de Beaute Now @ Nordstrom

Yep! That’s right — Le Metier de Beaute is now available at Nordstrom (online only, as far as I know).  If you’re unfamiliar with the brand, your wallet may be happy, but it is a top-notch luxury brand that’s been hard-to-find–especially in-store–and usually purchased online.  I love myself some Nordstrom, because I do love their customer service and return policy.  When it comes to buying makeup sight unseen, a generous return policy is always a must for me!

Dedication to design, detail and to the experience; Marchesa and Le Métier de Beauté bring women back to a time when the “craft of the craft” was so important, while simultaneously bringing them forward with the best in luxury technology. With this like-minded approach, the collaboration between the two came naturally. Introducing Marchesa for Le Métier de Beauté, the first collection to evolve from this joint collaboration, a true partnership in beauty, a new venture into irresistible luxury.

“Each season,” explains Georgina Chapman, co-founder and designer of Marchesa, “Keren Craig and I introduce a new collection, but with the classic and consistent signature that is Marchesa – we transport our customers back to a time when luxury fashion meant the best in tailoring, design, fabric, etc. When it came to launching a cosmetics collection, we wanted to do the same and we found immediately that Le Métier de Beauté shared these same core values.”

“The Collection takes the unparalleled textures and formulas Le Métier de Beauté is known for and transfixes them with the essence of Marchesa,” says Joanna Vorachek Austin, President of Le Métier de Beauté. “From the sleek packaging and the innovative formulas to the flawless application, the Marchesa for Le Métier de Beauté collaboration brings the best of both brands to the forefront of luxury.”

Le Metier de Beaute Traviata Blushing Bronzed Duet (Echo & Sun Kissed)

Le Metier de Beaute Traviata Blushing Bronzed Duet ($65.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a blush-bronzer duo that includes Echo Radiance Rouge Blush (delicate coral-pink) and Sun Kissed Bronzer (sheer, light bronze powder). Normally, the blush retails for $30 and the bronzer retails for $55. I don’t own either (and couldn’t find it via googling), so I’m not sure of the size of each individually. All I know is that 0.49 oz. of product is a good deal of product no matter how you slice it. (The average blush is around 0.15 oz.!)

The Spring Season: Le Metier de Beaute Apricot Creme Lip Gloss

Le Metier de Beaute Apricot Creme Lip Gloss ($36.00) is a peachy-nude cream gloss with just a touch of golden shimmer laced through it. It is, primarily, a cream finish gloss, though, so it can settle into lip lines. I find that it’s not really noticeable from the average viewing difference. I love, love the feeling of Le Metier de Beaute glosses, though; it’s moisturizing, lush, and non-sticky. It just feels amazing on lips. Every time I use one of my Le Metier de Beaute glosses, I marvel at how lovely they feel applied. I don’t wear Apricot Creme alone very often, but I love it on top of pinks and nudes.

The Scarlet Season: Le Metier de Beaute Framboise Creme Lip Creme Lip Gloss

Le Metier de Beaute Framboise Creme Lip Creme Lip Gloss ($36.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a stunning shade of subdued ruby red with ruby and gold shimmer and the most amazing pigmentation. I remember when I first purchased this shade, which was also the first time I ever heard of or saw Le Metier de Beaute, back in February 2009 when I was in New York for fashion week. I completely fell head-over-heels in love with the shade; it was love at first swatch, as they’d say! The formula is out of this world; it’s moisturizing, glossy, ridiculously well-pigmented (it still feels more like a gloss than a lipstick or liquid lipstick), and it lasts for a good four to six hours on me. I’m still as pleased with it today as I was when I first purchased it.
