Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a pink-laced raspberry red with red glitter and a frosted finish. This is my least favorite Le Metier de Beaute eyeshadow I’ve tried from the brand, because the texture is gritty when used dry and still a touch uneven (from the glitter) when used damp. This shade worked best when applied damp, because it allowed the product to bind together and give a smooth finish with opaque color. When applied dry, it is sheer, a little dry, and there is some fall out.

In the past, I’ve been very pleased with Le Metier de Beaute’s eyeshadows–they have a really smooth texture with a rich and buttery feel and excellent color payoff whether they are used dry or wet. Here, Fire Lily seems to be lacking in all of those characteristics in some way. It applies more smoothly when applied damp, but it still has some of the unevenness in the texture due to the glitteryness of the shade itself.

It is redder than MAC Cranberry. It’s only a touch redder and darker compared to Inglot #450. It’s must pinker compared to Urban Decay Gash. It’s closest to MAC Quartz Fusion, slightly less red, and the texture is better than MAC’s.

It's a good eyeshadow when used wet, and an inferior one when used dry, so it averages out to something in-between--average, perhaps--so if it's something you see yourself only using wet, then it will be of more value to you.

    I have this one and I think it deserves a much better grade than a C! ;)

    Hmmm. . . If you had bought this, I’d say to exchange it. Heck! Exchange it anyway! I have Fire Lily and have not had any problems with grittiness and fallout so I think perhaps the one you got was old or faulty. It does happen. This is a shadow that is meant for layering and so it is not nearly so fierce when applied as it is in the pan. If anyone is interested in it, I’d recommend going to the counter and asking the trained LMdB specialist for layering suggestions and seeing what it can do to enhance other colors.

  3. Too bad the product isn’t that great to work with.. Such an interesting color.

  4. This is a tad glittery but I agree with Eileen. In use it is perfection. I just tap the brush a bit to reduce the fallout and I don’t experience any issues. The beauty of this shade is how it layers. I have done looks featuring some really interesting combinations with Fire Lily on my blog and they’ve all been quick favourites. It is definitely different than the other LMdB eye shadows but it has it’s purpose and works beautifully for it. I suggest you play. That is the fun of LMdB. You can play with colours and layering and never end up with a muddy mess at the end.

    wow, it’s a shame it’s not as stunning when swatched.

    From your pictures, it certainly reminds me of the UD Gash eyeshadow you mentioned. It’s so beautiful (although red can be difficult to wear). Sorry this didn’t work out, thanks for reviewing it though!
