A couple of years ago someone came up with the idea to sell press-on makeup. It was mostly for eye shadows, I think, and contained stenciled pre-blended colors you had to press on your eye lids to transfer the color pattern. I couldn't get why one would want to use something like that- obviously these things weren't tailored to anyone's specific needs, face and individual features. My only guess was that some people were simply too lazy to do the brush work, and as such they deserved exactly what they got.
Obviously, Magic Luster Cream from Le Métier de Beauté is made for the exact opposite type of makeup user. Those who love to play with color and texture, blend and create new options from what they have on hand would absolutely love Magic.
What it does: Mixing Magic Luster Cream with any powder-based product turns it into a glossy substance. It means that you can turn blushes into lip glosses, eye shadows into cream blushes and bronzers and make your own cream/gel eye shadows.
How to do it: I practiced and played with it a while and decided I like best to put a drop of magic on my wrist or any washable surface and then drop the pigmented product next to it and bring them together gradually with a brush. In the photos above I used one of the shadows in Le Metier De Beaute Devotion Kaleidoscope Eye Kit from last spring. It becomes a gorgeous lip color and stays on beautifully.
Dustin from Le Metier De Beaute, who is quite magical by himself, suggests to use Magic Luster Cream straight on the face as a highlighter to give it a dewy finish.
Bottom Line: It should come in family size packaging (I'm already on my second pot).
The Magic Of Le Metier De Beaute Magic Luster Cream ($24) is available from select department stores worldwide and nordstrom.com.
