Le Metier de Beaute Romeo & Juliet Blushing Bronzed Duet
Le Metier de Beaute Romeo & Juliet Blushing Bronzed Duet ($65.00 for 0.49 oz.) contains a blush and bronzer in one. The brand’s blushes retail for $30 while their bronzer retails for $55. The duo, while an expensive investment, does pack a ton of product into the shiny silver compact)–by the ounce, it is cheaper than NARS blushes.
Unlike theTraviata, it appears these shades are exclusive to this duet. I asked Le Metier de Beaute yesterday for confirmation, but between you and me, the bronzer shade looks very similar to the bronzer in Traviata (which is available full-sized as their Sun Kissed Bronzer).
The blush is a soft cotton candy pink with subtle blue undertones and a micro-fine silver shimmer-sheen. It reminded me of MAC’s Dollymix (but more pigmented) or a lighter NARS Desire. The bronzer is a soft golden tan with more of a sheen than noticeable shimmer; it applies softly at first but can be built up for a more intense look. It doesn’t pull orange or red, so it’s more of a universal color.
Le Metier de Beaute does an amazing blush; the texture is beyond fine. It’s like silk skimming across the cheek, and the way it glows with a beautiful sheen differentiates it from many other blushes on the market.

Ease of Use: 4/5
RECOMMENDATION: If you’re in the market for both shades, it’s well worth it. If you’re just looking for one or the other, then you’re better off getting something similar individually. Though the value is certainly there, it comes at a high investment cost.
It’s probably just me, but the colors in this look remind me of birthdays and ice cream. I gotta tell you – I miss all those birthday parties I had (and went to) when I was really young (like 3-10!), those were always fun. My favorite kind of birthday cake is ICE CREAM CAKE! I also die for my boyfriend’s mom’s carrot cake, which she makes for everyone’s birthday. DELISH! What’s your favorite kind of cake?
I wore this look to my final exam yesterday, and can I just say how freaking excited I am that I am done with school until August? I can’t remember the last time I took a summer off. I feel like I’ve been perpetually in school forever. I’m just SO excited to be able to concentrate more on the blog and hope I can realize some of my big plans for it! But seriously, the word freedom never meant so much to me until last night at 10pm when I walked out of my final. (By the by, I hate finals that start so late–my brain just wants to go zzz!)
Oh, and I totally got eyeshadow base on my BROW, which I didn’t notice was so apparent until after photos – blah blah, I fixed it after, you know the drill!
For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Juxt eyeshadow on the lower two-thirds of the lid. Lightly place Aquadisiac eyeshadow on the crease 239. Next, apply Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow above the crease with the 239, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Blend Orb eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying #15 aqua eyes on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Opulash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Romeo & Juliet blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.
For lips, apply Capricious lipstick first, and then layer Cultured lipglass for a complementing lip.
