Why am I showing it to you since the promotion has ended? Le Métier de Beauté GWPs resurface now and then (as do many beauty GWPs). I want you to see how this beauty looks on the skin so that you'll know whether it's a definite "buy to get" if it's ever offered again. I was unconvinced from its photo that it would contain shades I could wear. Pink and mauve are not the best eye shadow colors for me. I am thrilled that I can wear these, with a few reservations.
I have to blend (or layer) the gold shade with the mauve to take the red out. That works. In fact, the pink and gold shades are gorgeous when blended. I was able to get swatch photos of the individual shades. I used a sponge-tipped applicator to apply them heavily, and I took my photos in full sun.
The gold shade is a pretty deep gold. It's extremely useful. The mauve is mauve or muted burgundy, a shade that brings out the red in my eyes. It's a color I must avoid on my eyelids, although it's gorgeous on my cheeks. If you can wear mauve, this is a pretty one.
We have had a terrible sunlight deficit for the last week or so. I'd love to have been able to show you the blended shades I created using Bora Bora. As soon as I got these photos, the sun departed that day. I haven't seen much of it since.
I have new makeup and no way to show it to you! I really need a good day to get photos. I'm not sure about today's outlook. While our plants needed the rain, I need some sun to show you the latest best things in beauty!
