Le Metier de Beaute Fig Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Fig Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Fig Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a reddened eggplant purple with a soft, frosted sheen. When applied wet, it takes on a slightly more jewel-toned depth, while applied dry, it appears the faintest bit lighter. There is not a big difference between the two, and the color payoff is excellent either way. Make Up For Ever #311 is darker–it has more of a blackened base. Inglot #452 is similar but redder, less purple. theBalm Curvy Cami is less intense with a dustier color, but there is some similarity.

The texture of Le Metier de Beaute eyeshadows is phenomenal–rich and buttery with a silky feel and smooth application. These eyeshadows can be used wet or dry, but generally, they work as well as wet as they do dry, which is nice, because it allows the user to decide on the application without sacrificing color payoff or texture. Here, Fig worked well both wet and dry, and the color intensity with either application method was lovely–really dense, opaque color with a silky smooth feel.

Fig

A+
Fig's formula is consistent with Le Metier de Beaute's richly pigmented but soft textured eyeshadows. The color will work well with both cooler and warmer skin tones.

    I think there’s a typo there, because you referred to it being applied wet twice in the same sentence. Unless I’m reading it wrong. D:

    It’s a beautiful color, but not one that I’d pay 30 dollars for. :P

  2. Okay, I’ll get this one. That’s what I wanted MAC’s Indian Ink to be and it’s about 3 times the product for less than 3 times the price.

  3. I feel like I must have a dupe for this somewhere, so this is another pass.

  4. *sigh* I’d temporarily forgotten how badly I was wanting Fig. Thanks for reminding me. AGH!

  5. The color is gorgeous, but I just can’t justify spending $30 on one eyeshadow!

    Ditto! $30 for one eyeshadow! Pretty fall color, but pass for me too:)

    Hey Christine,

    Not commenting on this product. Just an FYI that Blogger’s Obsession is available at MAC. Just placed my ‘back-up’ order.

  8. Ooh, that’s gorgeous. I may finally make my first purchase from this brand!

    Fig is on my LMDB wish list. It is a great color to bring out the golden tones in brown eyes. Thanks for the swatches!
