Taking a quick break from fall items and new collection to look at a very summery (and permanent) eye single eye shadow by Le Metier de Beaute. I thank NARS Ramatuelle trio from spring for pushing me towards different shades and color combinations. That's what led me to try Le Metier de Beaute's Tuscan Sunset, a warm apricot color that leans more pink than the peach part of Ramatuelle.
The texture of Tuscan Sunset is among the best in the LMdB line: soft, rich and almost creamy. The pigment intensity is wonderful- I swatched lightly (I swear), and you can see how bright and strong Tuscan Sunset looks. The eye shadow has a satin finish with quite a bit of sheen. It can be toned down and sheered (my favorite way of application) as needed. My preference for pairing Tuscan Sunset is with soft matte neutrals (Le Metier de Beaute Clay or Canvas as well as some Rouge Bunny Rouge shades). Of course, if you're more adventurous there are summer colors like aqua and turquoise that will get heads turning.
Bottom Line: bright and happy.
Le Metier de Beaute single eye shadows ($30) are available from select department stores (Neiman, Bergdorf, Saks), as well as online.
