First Look: The LE Le Metier de Beaute Holiday Eyeshadow Palettes + 10 F & F Sale Suggestions

Le Metier de Beaute LE Holiday Palettes in Night Magnifique and Smoke and Mirrors. 
Le Metier de Beaute has released two limited edition eyeshadow palettes, just in time for the holidays.  After already selling out earlier this month, one is currently back in stock for immediate order at Neiman Marcus and the other is available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman and slated to ship out right after the 25th. 

To help you make a more informed decision about which one to order (in my opinion...both!) I am excited to share swatches galore as well as 10 recommendations for the first-ever Neiman Marcus Friends and Family Sale (20% off regular price merchandise with the code FRIENDME), happening now through 12/18

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the palettes in action and my NM Friends & Family Sale Recommendations as well as the Bottom Line...



Night Magnifique.
The cooler of the two options, the *Le Metier de Beaute Night Magnifique Palette features five exquisite shades that create a modern smoky eye in seconds:
  • Beau: Luminescent pale pink
  • Envie: Sparkling deep thistle taupe 
  • Seduire: Rich matte plum
  • Vision: Radiant bronzy brown
  • Flick: Intense matte black 
As to be expected, the fragrance-free eyeshadow formula is buttery smooth with exceptional color payoff and creaseless wear. I am especially partial to the radiant Envie and Vision shades and Beau is beautiful when blended up towards the brow bone. Simply divine!

*Le Metier de Beaute Smoke & Mirrors.
The *Le Metier de Beaute Smoke & Mirrors Palette features warm pentad of incandescent shades distinguished exquisite shades that create a sophisticated neutral eye in seconds:
  • Reverie: Silver cloud grey
  • BlissSparkling lilac taupe 
  • Givre: Golden warm bronze
  • Cheri: Vibrant rust red
  • Sentiment: Deep satin indigo blue
I am especially partial to the sun-drenched Givre and Cheri shades and love offsetting their warmth with the lush gossamer grey Reverie. Effortless and resplendent! **Full demonstration on the eyes forthcoming.

In terms of the Neiman Marcus Friends and Family Sale (20% off regular price merchandise with the code FRIENDME), here are 10 qualifying purchases to consider:
  1. FRAME Denim Feminine Denim Blouse: I love the fuller arms on this blouse; they are totally justifying my need to get yet another denim shirt. 
  2. Kendra Scott Rayne Long Pendant Necklace: The longer chain and unique detailing makes this an exquisite gift. 
  3. FRAME Le High Straight Leg Black Cropped Jeans: It is difficult to find a pair of straight jeans and this cropped pair in a deep ebony can be dressed up or down with ease. 
  4. Equipment Leema Tie-Neck Silk Shift Dress: In quite possibly the most perfect hue, this timeless dress works well for work and play alike.
  5. UGG Classic Short II Boot: I have a weak spot for monogrammed items that can be worn daily and these UGGS fit the bill...warm feet, fashionably personalized...yes, please.
  6. Barton Perreira Universal Fit Quimby Sunglasses: These sunglasses are simply gorgeous and come in an array of color combinations to flatter a spectrum of skin tones. 
  7. Rebecca Minkoff Leather Mini Tassel Gloves: The mini tassels make these gloves singularly fetching and the soft leather guarantees utility for much of the year.
  8. Eileen Fisher Easy Velvet Top in Raisonette: I love that velvet is having a resurgence; I'll be wearing this with jeans and skirts well past New Years Eve! 
  9. Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Leather Over the Knee Boots: These boots have incredible reviews and the fact that I can pick them up for 20% off is beyond marvelous.
  10. Theory Donners Cashmere Crewneck Sweater: Apropos for the man in your life, this cashmere sweater is a classic.

  3. These are also removable. So Since I am about NC43, I was planning to buy all 3 palettes (day and night Newman Marcus and the one at Bergdorf) and build 2 palettes that I like for myself and give away the third one.
