Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily Eyeshadow


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.

Le Metier de Beaute Fig Eyeshadow


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.

Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon Eyeshadow


Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a lightened antique gold. I love the lightness of the color–a lot of antique golds tend to be murkier, almost green, but this still retains some of the sheen and brightness of gold while still having that antique appearance. Urban Decay Rush is much, much darker and browner, while Inglot #404 is much too gold. It seems like it would compare to long-ago limited edition shades like MAC Rye and Summer Neutral, but this still seems warmer, more golden.

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. Chameleon has good color opacity, and the finish is a soft frost, which is emphasized when it is used wet.

Le Metier de Beaute Innocence Eyeshadow


Le Metier de Beaute Innocence Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Innocence Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Innocence Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a red-tinted copper with a part frost, part metallic sheen. It’s a finely-milled, smooth, blendable eyeshadow that applies as well dry as it does wet (the metallic sheen is emphasized when used wet). The color payoff is rich, intense, but it did read redder in the pan than when I swatched it. I imagine my yellower undertones have something to do it and would expect someone with pinker undertones to see this pull redder on them.

This is very similar to Milani’s I Heart You in color, though it is less pigmented. It is also similar to MAC Coppering, which looks more copper than Innocence.

Le Metier de Beaute Bordeaux Eyeshadow


Le Metier de Beaute Bordeaux Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Bordeaux Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Bordeaux Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a burgundy brown with warm, red-orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It’s richly pigmented with a very soft, silky-smooth texture that applies beautifully on the skin. It just glides on and melts into the skin. The color payoff (which was excellent!) was the same whether I used it dry or wet.  Though pricey, each pan contains nearly double the amount that the average eyeshadow has.

It reminded me a bit of Chanel Ebloui, but this is a much smoother, refined finish in comparison. Initially, I thought it was going to be like MAC Cranberry, but it’s much, much browner. It is also browner and less red compared to Urban Decay Gash. It’s also redder and less brown compared to MAC Antiqued.

Le Metier de Beaute Jade Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Jade True Color Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark, muted green with subtle yellow undertones; it’s almost a cool-toned green. Jade has a satin finish, which is described as “a rich, silk-like consistency offering sheer coverage with a subtle sheen.”

The texture is soft and smooth, and the color goes on richly and lays on the skin incredibly nicely. The color is very true-to-pan and doesn’t require any building to achieve opaque color. Being a satin finish, the texture of Jade isn’t quite as buttery as the shadows from the Penelope Kaleidoscope (which is what prompted me to buy three of their single eyeshadows!), but it’s just as easy to apply and blend.
