I’m lumping two unboxing posts for my Le Métier de Beauté Beauty Vault VIP because the January box shipped a bit late and I couldn’t get the post up last month. It’s been a big blush time for Le Métier de Beauté, which I’m enjoying since I haven’t bought tried any blushes on my own aside from the cheek products I’ve gotten from this sub.
January 2015 Box: Powder Blush & Kabuki Brush
For January, subscribers received a plummy, shimmery blush and a kabuki brush, which is the first repeat item in the past eighteen months (August 2014-Jan 2015). The blush is the same size as their eyeshadow singles—a little small for a blush, a little big for eyeshadow—and the color is quite nice for everyday. There isn’t a label on it, just “VIP,” so I’m not sure what to call this shade, lol. I think one of the things that frustrate me about this sub is that it’s a little bit inconsistent in terms of branding/packaging. Sometimes, there are little cards that come with a bit more information about the items. Other times, there is barely any thought to the packaging.
Anyway, the blush is quite nice and I’ve used it a bunch of times since I got it. I’m not sure if I will be keeping the kabuki brush, since I already have one. It’s a great brush (but it sheds a little frequently), but I might pass it on to someone else or put it up on my blog sale.
February 2015 Box: Blushing Bronzed Duet in Romeo & Juliet
The February item is a Blushing Bronzed Duet in Romeon & Juliet, which retails for $65. This box came with a card, briefly introducing the product: “The two merge together to create the perfect love (blush).” Available individually, the blush—the Radiance Rouge in Echo, a “delicate coral-pink”—and bronzer—in the shade Sun Kissed, a sheer light bronze powder—create such a pretty summer shade.
As you can see, I got this a bit broken… luckily, I like how it looks best, swirled together:
“This beautiful and balanced combination creates summer’s quintessential glow with ease and grace,” Le Métier de Beauté says on their Bergdorf Goodman description, and I have to agree.
