When a brand positions itself as top of the luxury range, you a) need to believe them and b) need to have heard of them. So, Le Metier de Beaute has its work cut out presenting these matte cremes at £40 a pop. £40? I keep thinking there must be some mistake. I’ve been a fan of the range for years – it had presence (in Liberty) in the UK a few years ago but I draw the line here.
I really try not to second guess a beauty lover’s budget – it’s not really any of my business what anyone spends but I just can’t bring myself to say this is a good use of £40 when there is so much decent competition (Chanel, Armani). Yes, pigment is amazing, yes they are long (ish) in the last and I didn’t find them particularly drying but, you know… ouch!
I loved using the Precision Lash Mascara – I got beautifully pitch black lashes with a brush that really does allow you to get to the lash root and the Precision Liquid Liner is a wonderfully dark ink with an applicator that doesn’t make you feel you need a degree in calligraphy to get right. But – they are both £40 each as well. No, no and no. I can just about make sense of Peau Vierge (£117): skin care and a light tint that is like gossamer on the complexion, but a £40 liquid liner, mascara and lip creme, I struggle with.
If you feel you must, the range is HERE.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
