Beautiful Beginnings with Le Metier de Beaute

Beautiful Beginnings with Le Metier de Beaute

What was the first Le Metier de Beaute product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Lipgloss was my first love! I remember being in NYC and going through one of the high-end stores (maybe it was Barney’s?) and spotting the counter. I had never heard of the brand before, and let me tell you – $35+ for a gloss at that time was a big deal for me! I loved, still love the gloss, and generally find the brand to be very, very good. They don’t have a lot of products, but they have excellent products. It’s still hard for me to bring myself to shell out $95 for their Kaleidoscopes even though I know it’s a good deal.

Share your first time experiences with Le Metier de Beaute in the comments! 🙂

NARS Superstar Nail Lacquer

NARS Superstar Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “teal.” It’s a dark, smoky blue with just a hint of teal (which is more apparent in the bottle than on the nail) and a cream finish. Essie Go Overboard is quite similar, though I’d say it leans a bit closer to teal with less blue. MAC Deep Sea is darker and greener. Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal is darker and more teal.

NARS 15 Minutes Nail Lacquer

NARS 15 Minutes Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lemon yellow.” It’s a slightly pastel sunshine yellow. MAC Near Beth Experience is much lighter. Rescue Beauty Lounge Yellow Fever is much darker. China Glaze Lemon Fizz is also much lighter. In the end, I couldn’t think of any dupes from previous shades I’ve reviewed.
