Le Metier de Beaute Midnight Sky Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Midnight Sky Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is an incredibly deep, dark navy blue with soft frost finish. It almost seems like navy blue sheen over a blackened-blue base, because the level of darkness is so high, but it doesn’t read blackened blue at all. ┬áIt looks a bit like MAC Blue Sheen used dry–but Midnight Sky is so much darker and opaque. Make Up For Ever #81 seems the closest but leans a touch purple.

The formula is buttery and almost creamy (but it is a powder) because of its denser texture. It applies smoothly and the color distributes evenly across the skin. I found it worked well both dry and wet with no real distinguishable difference between the two methods.

P.S. — I swear, I didn’t already review this, but I did review Lapis, which is a medium blue–but the two really are several shades away from each other!

Midnight Sky

A+
When Le Metier de Beaute gets it right, they really get it right. Midnight Sky has excellent color payoff, a silky smooth texture, and it wears beautifully.

    I get so much fallout with this shade- even when I use it wet. It’s such a pretty color, but such a pain.

  2. Great photos! What a gorgeous blue! It looks amazing in your swatches. I just love the texture & pigmentation of most of Le Metier’s shadows :)

    Christine,

    Did you try this shadow with a 239 or comparable brush? I’ve owned this shadow for a while and it doesn’t apply as nicely as it swatches. Mine doesn’t anyway.

  4. At first I thought it looked like UD Goddess, but now that I see the swatch, Midnight Sky looks richer and darker.

  5. Violet

    I want to make sweet love to this shade.

  6. Joanne

    Love it!! This is what I was hoping Urban Decay’s Goddess would be like.

  7. Wow. I really wish it were easier to get LMdB up here. That’s the most beautiful dark blue I’ve ever seen.

  8. Ashley

    Very pretty. I feel like there have been very similar shades reviewed in the last month though (from other brands). Probably some are cheaper than $30 (for one eyeshadow!).

    A possible dupe is Elizabeth Arden’s Indigo

    It reminds me of Inglot #428 – they have the same intensity but Inglot is more of a jewel blue, a few shades lighter. Very pretty!

    Yeah… it doesn’t matter how beautiful/well formulated a blue is… I’ll never be able to wear it.

    Digging LMDB’s Chameleon though, you just reminded me to add that to my wishlist <3

    This is what I call Midnight Blue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How close is this to Mac’s Climate Blue ?

  14. Kim

    Hmm it kinda looks like MAC Blue Flame.
