Alexandrite and La Belle FOTD

As promised, here is my FOTD utilizing my latest aquisition - Le Metier de Beaute eye shadow and lip gloss.

I might as well just hand over my credit card, bank account to the good folks of this brand. I am really keeping myself on a tight leash. I didn't want to buy into the hype but I just can't help it.

It is as lovely as others have reported!

Other products used - TFSI, Lemon Drop - lid primer
LMdB Alexandrite - on lid
MAC Soba - crease
MAC Arena - Brow Bone
UD 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, Smog
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara

And here is the gloss swatched on my arm (NC 42 and gladly reporting Chanel Perfection Lumiere - #44 Beige Ambre - more to come on this new foundation!)

The gloss is a deep plum loaded with fine golden shimmer. It looks like a raisin gloss on my lips. It is perfect for the Fall/Winter. For lack of a better description, I'd say it goes on med-thick - not quite as thick as a MAC lipglass and not quite as slick/thin as a Laura Mercier Lip Glace.

Since it's only a gloss, I get about 2 1/2 hours of wear time, barely stretching 3 hours if I don't drink anything. It is unscented and does not irritate my lips - HUGE PLUS for me!

And here it is all together:

On my cheeks: 
Chanel Joues Contraste #67 Rose Tourbillon

Yes, I will be returning for more LMdB shadows and glosses. Hopefully, I will be able to buy the Corinthian shadow and I will try out their beloved lip creams.


  1. So pretty! I love Alexandrite on you!

  2. Looks great on you! I love plum toned eyeshadow. Great color for fall :)

  3. Thanks Ladies! I hope that I won't go overboard on the LMdB now that I know they are fantastic products.

    Thanks for piquing my interest in this line!

  4. I should make a list of all the makeup you've 'sold me' -- it's $dontwanttosay and counting, and please remember that I am a person who basically does not wear makeup!


  5. hahahahah SARVI, I love it!!

    I'm so proud. Also, I encouraged my ex-roommate to get regular mani/pedis and she's a mechanic haha. Yeah, she buys makeup/skincare regularly because of my blog, too!
