Le Métier de Beauté True Colour Eye Shadow in Spicy.

i finally did it! buying some rare brands (at least to me) instead of only lemming for them ;)
Maureen helped me to buy some great stuff, so you will see reviews of Chantecaille, Le Métier de Beauté, Clé de Peau and such in the near future :D
today i want to show you a Le Métier de Beauté True Colour Eye Shadow in the shade Spicy.
it comes in a simple and sleek little compact made of rubberized plastic. it has a wide pan and contains 3.8g of product which is quite a lot for an eyeshadow (remember one shadow by MAC contains 1.5g). it costs 30$ but i find that the content relativates the rather hefty price tag.
Spicy is a bronzey brown with golden shimmer. it has a very fine and silky texture and feels like velvet to touch. i would describe the texture inbetween NARS eyeshadows and MAC Starflash finishes.
it has a good pigmentation and applies as a warm brown with golden sheen to my lids. it goes on evenly and smooth and blends out incredibly beautiful and effortless. the colour stays all day on my lids when i prep it with an eyelid primer (use UDPP at the moment).
as an approach to Le Métier's "Couches de Couleur"-technique i love to wear it as a sheer wash layered over other eyeshadows, it creates a bronze light catching sheen and makes the eye make up look a lot more dimensional and glowy. it also looks great over totally different colours like a dark matte indigo or cool grey...
i'm so glad that i have already ordered more of these LMdB eyeshadows!


some different eye make ups i did with LMdB Spicy
(each time combined with a lighter taupe on the inner half and a darker shade on the outer corners)


MAC GO (Starflash LE) - Le Métier de Beauté Spicy - MAC Bronze (lower left corner of 6 Dashing Lassies palette - Tartan Tale LE)
MAC Go  - Le Métier de Beauté Spicy - MAC Bronze
LMdB Spicy is lighter and more golden than MAC Go and less reddish than MAC Bronze.


  1. this is beautiful! i am obsessed with LMdB lately...i want all of the kaleidoscopes! the singles look lovely

  2. Mit den Lidschatten von LMdB liebäugle ich auch schon seit längerem! Und wenn ich deine Review dazu lese, dann reit es mich noch mehr... Oder ich muss endlich mal wieder nach Paris in den Printemps kommen...

  3. Oh eine sehr tolle Farbe. Erinnert mich an Romp von MAC, ich liebe diesen Lidschatten;)

  4. looks simple but pretty and appropriate for work and everyday

    I love neutrals cuz you can't go wrong with it and they're very easy to pair with other colors. =)

  5. very beautiful, what brush did you use for your eyeliner on your eotd? it's gorgeous :) i can never get that flick on the wing. By the way I did get Le metier de beaute brush and love it :) as well as an RMK blush brush and a shu e/s brush. Ironically when i went to get my LMDb brush , i saw this e/s at the counter in Hong Kong. please respond to my email at ty :)
