Le Metier de Beaute Goldstone True Colour Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Goldstone True Colour Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is burnt goldenrod–a sort of rusty medium brown with orange undertones and a yellow gold shimmer-sheen. Dior Aurora has a shade that’s very similar with less of a sheen and a slightly more orange base. Chanel Tigerlily is more orange, less shimmer/sheen. MAC Juiced has a similar color, but it has less warmth. MAC Goldmine is lighter, more gold-like. Inglot #404 is more bronze.

The color payoff was excellent; really rich in color that required no layering or building to achieve true-to-pan color. It has a sublime texture that’s soft, silky-smooth and melts against the skin. It’s almost buttery, but it doesn’t have a really dense quality to it, yet the way it looks and feels is more in line with a nearly-creamy, buttery texture. The powder is finely-milled and blends effortlessly on the lid.  Goldstone wears impeccably on the eye, too, with or without a primer–I was able to get a full eight hours of wear without creasing or fading both over and without a primer.

Each True Colour Eyeshadow comes in a circular, rubberized compact with a mirror inside, and they’re almost triple the size of the average eyeshadow–0.13 oz. compared to 0.05 oz. It might ring up at a higher-than-palatable price tag, but you get every bit of your money’s worth here, both in terms of quality as well as quantity.

It might ring up at a higher-than-palatable price tag, but you get every bit of your money's worth here, both in terms of quality as well as quantity. It has excellent color payoff, wear, blendability, and texture. There's not one thing I could think of that needs improving!

    What lovely, sparkly eyeliner are you wearing on your lower lash line?

  2. The color looks better on your eyes than it does in the container. Fresh-looking glam, I like it alot :-)

  3. Oooh, there’s that gorgeous eye look from last week! This color looks amazing.

  4. This looks stunning! I want to try the formula now really badly! Sounds really, really lovely!

  5. This does look really lovely. I’m always trying to find a beautiful warm gold. I like Goldmine, but it seems to look more like a bright yellow on me. This one seems like it might work a bit better. It’s also possible that I’m giving myself permission to buy more LMdB shadows.

    Christine, I honestly think you should make your blog high end exclusive. It’s clear you favor high end brands, and you seem to feature them more than anything else. I like that you update a lot, but most of it just seems like filler and I think if you made the blog more targeted to one type of makeup, it would naturally become more streamlined. Or maybe create different parts of the blog to feature high end and drugstore.
