Le Metier de Beaute Lip and Cheek Tints in Mystique and Tenne


Hey all! I am back and ready to share some of my splurges from the past few weeks. I am afraid that I threw out all the boxes from my recent purchases and so sadly those are not going to be included in the next few posts.

I thought I would start off by showing you two more lip and cheek tints from Le Metier de Beaute. As you can see I was not lying when I said I planned on purchasing more when I purchased the tint in Coral Nymph. These two are Mystique, which is a cool pink with a slight shimmer to it that is described as "bubblegum pink" and Tenne, which is a a nude tan shade.

These products are described as "Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint for Lip and Cheek hydrates as it delivers a fresh flush of color to your skin. The smooth formula glides on effortlessly, offering brilliant blendability for a seamless application and flawless, natural-looking finish. Formulated with vitamin E and lecithin, it nourishes and replenishes moisture to promote a healthy look and long-lasting, comfortable feel."

The uppermost swatch is Tenne with Mystique underneath and Coral Nymph at the bottom to show how all three colors compare to each other.

My review from coral nymph is essentially the same (they are great tints that have a very creamy texture that blend into the skin easily and are very hard to overdo). The only thing I am going to change in my review is that these can be used as lip tints. I had originally stated that I had trouble using them on the lips and I found that if applied with a lip brush instead of your finger, they look quite nice. They are a bit drying, but other than that they are full coverage and look rather good. 

I think I would eventually like to get Ginger Lilly and Poppy to round out my collection. I simply love these and I think they are perfect for the summer months as they are quite long lasting even through a little sweat.

These products can be purchased at Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, or anywhere else Le Metier de Beaute products are sold. I purchased mine from a vault pairing on the Le Metier website.

Blog Break and Request to Readers


Hey everyone. For the next few weeks I am not planning on posting with any amount of frequency. Not to say I do not plan on posting as I have a bunch of things I still need to review, but it won't be with much frequency. I have 3 weeks left of this year for school (I am a graduate student) and then I have summer vacation (where my reviews will become more frequent again).

Until then I have a special request. Do I have any readers that live in London (or close to it) that is willing to help me out with something? Please email me at: r.liane.axelrod@gmail.com

Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you all continue to do so. Please stay tuned for some new skincare reviews really soon. I haven't reviewed skincare in awhile and I have a lot of products that are overdue such as a review of a few Le Metier Skincare products, and Lush products and a few less well known brands!

Tom Ford Cream Eyeshadow in Pink Haze


I know this is very tricky to find, but I am pretty sure you can still get this online at Saks.com or ebay, so I am going to review it anyway incase you have found it and are thinking of purchasing and looking for a review on the product.

I contemplated back and forth on this purchase. After seeing reviews online I wanted to get the other color in this, escapade, but when I went down to the store to purchase, I decided I wasn't as thrilled with it because it was so sheer. I did, however, fall in love with pink haze. Unfortunately, they were sold out in this and so I left sans my eyeshadow. A week later I received a pre-order email from Saks stating they were getting this back in - SCORE! If you are hesitant to buy this, I would say buy it as you will probably regret not getting it later.

This is a pink with peach tones and gold pearl.

I normally do not like cream shadows and stay away from them, mostly because I find them messy, hard to work with, and generally not long lasting (i.e. creasing). This shadow is absolutely incredible. It is incredibly pigmented, lasts all day with no fading or creasing, is very blend able and easy to work with, and does not have the same texture as your average cream eyeshadow. This eyeshadow is creamy and soft. I do not have to scrape my finger or brush across the top to get color. It is almost like a whipped mouse, it kinda has the texture of those whipped body lotions. I am now upset that I did not also get escapade. I'll absolutely be getting any other colors they come out with in the future.

As I said before, I am not sure where you can still get this, but I am sure with enough perseverance you can find this if you want it.

USA Glossybox May 2013



This will be my last glossybox post. I have official canceled this service as I am fed up with them and can no longer afford to spend my money on their cruddy service. I am sick of their cruddy shipping, cruddy customer service, and lately cruddy boxes. This is my May box:

AmorePacific: Color Control Cushion Compact
Etre Belle: Collageb and Aloe Vera Hydro Mask
European Wax Center: The Exfoliate and Slow it Body Wash
My Prime: Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer
Nicka K New York: Absolute! Perfume Stick
Sebastian Professional: Volupt Spray

The only product in this box I was excited about was the AmorePacfic CC cream, but they managed to give the darkest color to someone who filled out their box survey as "fair" skinned. Thank you glossybox. The Etre Belle was a single mask, the European Wax Center were foil packets, and the My Prime is useless to someone with dry skin. What a great one year anniversary box. I have signed up for PopSugar Must Have Box (I have heard amazing things about this service) and you can expect to see an update on this box hopefully later this month! =)

If you care to order this horrendous box you can purchase it from http://www.glossybox.com/ at $21 a month, but I don't recommend you do so.
