A New Look with Le Metier de Beaute + An Upcoming Beauty Professor Event

Happy Friday! Today, I am excited to share an overview of some new springtime launches from Le Metier de Beaute--an exquisite independent beauty brand that has been near and dear to my heart for many years--as well as a full look with the products in action.  Ever innovative and sophisticated, the fresh releases do not disappoint! 

Additionally, I am hosting a beauty event at Neiman Marcus, Topanga on 5/4 and you are invited...all of the details at the end of this post. 

Kindly scroll on for a breakdown of the new releases and an on-location look as well as the Bottom Line...

The new Le Metier de Beaute launches. 
// THE NEW LAUNCHES // From cutting-edge skincare and versatile cream base to two stunning eyeshadow palettes in the shades of the season, the current launches are perfectly resplendent. 

The Le Metier de Beaute Perfector and Longevity Cream.
My skin has had the privilege of testing out the new *Le Metier de Beaute Perfector (reviewed HERE), which harnesses the power of encapsulated 1% Retinol to combat hyperpigmentation, smooth skin and brighten one's visage. After three weeks of use, my skin is more refined with a fresh and glowing outcome. I can't wait to keep using this!

Complete details, courtesy of Neiman Marcus:

Developed with retinol, an anti-aging powerhouse, know for its ability to eliminate tonality and texture issues. The Perfector dramatically reduces dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. In just 28 days, uneven skin tones will disappear through the benefits of this powerful trio: 1% Retinol, 1% Hexylresorcinol, and TPM®. The Perfector also illuminates the skin while dramatically reduces dark spots, post-acne marks and sun damage. This luxe formulation stimulates collagen synthesis, brings elasticity back to skin and diminishes the appearance of pores.

The Technology that powers the product:
  • TPM® — Increases the absorption of key cosmeceutical ingredients into the skin, increasing therapeutic benefit, while reducing the redness, inflammation, and irritation.
  • Retinol — An anti-aging powerhouse known to smooth and plump wrinkles, encourage collagen revitalization and bring elasticity back to skin. Retinol is proven to improve mottled pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, skin tone and color, and your skin's hydration levels.
  • Hexylresorcinol — Effectively treats hyper-pigmented skin, creating a more even toned texture and appearance.
  • Shea Butter — Moisturizes dry skin without the greasy feel. It soothes and relaxes irritated sunburned and itchy skin. It restores skin's elasticity, prevents blemishes and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Designed to be an excellent complement to the *Le Metier de Beaute Perfector, the *Le Metier de Beaute Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Night Creme heals skin while you sleep, plumping and tightening skin while encouraging collagen production and radiance.  My friends, this is a transcendent and sublime formula and my skin has never looked better; the unprecedented combination of ingredients truly contributes to observable changes in texture and clarity and, as with the Perfector, I look forward to continuing to integrate this into my skincare routine.

Official details, courtesy of Neiman Marcus:

Sleep tight: This emollient and potent treatment is designed to restore the skin while the body is most receptive—at rest. Through a groundbreaking, proprietary delivery system, key actives are quickly transported to their designated locations to provide visible and dramatic results: an improved appearance in fine lines, wrinkles and pore size; increased hydration; enhanced radiance; and an overall more even tone. The formation of expression lines is also slowed. This is beauty sleep at its best. 

  • Retinol (.05%): an anti-aging powerhouse known to smooth and plump wrinkles, encourage collagen rejuvenation, and bring elasticity back to skin. 
  • Coenzyme Q10 (.05%): proven anti-aging active reduces depth of age-related wrinkles and protects against photo-aging. 
  • SNAP 8 (.005%): an anti-aging, power-peptide that reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by expression muscles, specifically in forehead and eye-areas.
  • L-Carnosine (.1%): aids in the loss of keratin degradation, which causes rough, dry skin.
Haute Metals Palettes. 
The *Le Metier de Beaute Limited Edition Haute Metals Palettes (comprehensively reviewed HERE) round out the recent springtime releases; in two sets of shade ranges (the neutral Warm and wearable green Cool) that capture the carefree beauty of the season, these buttery shadows have excellent color payoff and substantial, crease-free lasting power. Absolutely brilliant! 

Official details, courtesy of Neiman Marcus:

Le Métier de Beauté introduces two extraordinary eye shadow palettes designed with spring trends in mind – Haute Metals Limited Eye Colour Collection in Cool and Haute Metals Limited Eye Colour Collection in Warm. Sold individually, each palette features five superbly pigmented, ultra-refined shadows that are completely blendable and can be layered effortlessly to achieve a prismatic effect. Shades are magnetized to enhance the versatility of both collections when purchased together.
  • Pigment rich & superior texture
