Hey everyone! I just got back from Seoul last night, and came home to a bunch of beauty stuff that came in while I was away. (Oops.) First up in this accidental series of unboxings is the Le Métier de Beauté Beauty Vault VIP sub box for November 2014—essentially an LMdB makeup bag with two Dualistic Lip Pencils (Nudité and Rouge) and two sample packets, the Revitalizing Anti-Aging Day Crème and the Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Night Crème.
I already have the lip pencil in Nudité, and I was happy to get another one of it. Rouge is also an interesting color to have. As far as lip pencils go, these are two pretty standard shades that will get a lot of use from me.
As for skin care, I generally have had really, really great experiences with Le Métier de Beauté skin care. It introduced me to retinol, which is something I swear by now. That said, I will probably pass on these items to my mom, as I already have a bunch of great skin products and she will probably appreciate the anti-aging aspects more. 🙂
The sub comes out to about $29 in cost, and the value of the pencils is $36 each. The sample packets are hard to “price,” but the full sizes come out to $285 for the day creme and $350 for the night cream—roughly coming to about $28.50 and $35.00 for these teeny samples, respectively. The total cost of the November box is $135.50. I’m counting the bag as a GWP.
Le Métier de Beauté Beauty Vault VIP sub sign-ups open back up in July 2015. I’ve gotten 16 months worth of products, having signed up last year, and I have to say that I love most of what I got, extremely thankful for the skin care items particularly.
