FOTD: Le Metier de Beaute True Colour Eye Shadows in JOJO, CORINTHIAN and BORDEAUX

February 8, 2012

As promised this is my EOTD/FOTD wearing the gorgeous Le Metier de Beaute True Colour Eye Shadows in JOJO, CORINTHIAN and BORDEAUX. A preview picture first, I thought the eye shadows look much better on the eyes than  how it appears in the swatch in my previous post. As Le Metier De Beaute claims – when the colors are layered together, they really bring out the complex undertone of each shade for a perfectly multi-dimensional effect! Overall I am very impressed.

le-metier-de-beaute-true-colour-eye-shadow-jojo-corinthian-bordeaux-fotd-1I applied JOJO as a base color all over the eye socket, then applied BORDEAUX along the upper lash line and added CORINTHIAN to the outer v.

On the lower lash line, JOJO was applied on the inner corner and BORDEAUX was on the outer third.

This could be the shortest post I have ever done haha…Work has been really taking a toll on me lately, and I am very sleep deprived so blogging on a frequent basis is quite challenging for me at the moment. The good news is that retail therapy still works for me, so I hope I will have some time to show you the highly anticipated Chanel 2012 Spring collection and the Burberry 2012 Spring collection in the near future!

Hey Rei!
Looking good! Love this FOTD! Now you got me interested in LMDB eyeshadows!


Petrina February 8, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Lovely neutral look. Your coloring suits a wide range of shades – jealous 😉 i would never be able to wear a blush in the tone of something like this!


Meryl February 8, 2012 at 12:50 pm

This is going to sound creepy/weird but you have the best taste in false lashes. Not to mention the application is FLAWLESS. I swear, I used to think they were your natural lashes for the longest time! Can’t wait to see what you purchased from Chanel and Burberry.


Jess February 9, 2012 at 12:58 am

I’m glad to hear that you are liking your Le Metier De Beaute eyeshadows, as they look amazingly flattering against your complexion.

I’m totally loving your subtle cheeks and lips combo, Reika! NARS Sex Appeal goes perfectly with Belle De Jour! I have NARS Sex Appeal myself, but I’m quite neglecting it these days.

Yay for retail therapy! :p


Sophia February 9, 2012 at 2:31 am

I am very mesmerised by your lashes, which ones are you using? They seem to have golden brown tinted ends. Interesting!
Everything else is flawless, as always. 🙂


Reika February 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Hi Sophia, haha can’t believe you noticed that! I just tinted the end of my normal black falsie with a golden-brown brow gel 😛


Amy February 9, 2012 at 5:02 am

Gorgeous look! The colors suit your skin tones sooooo well xx


andromeda February 9, 2012 at 6:17 am

gorgeous! may I know what contacts you are wearing? they seem to complement the E/S really well!


Reika February 13, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Hi andromeda, the contacts are by NEO and you can find the review here


Lisa February 10, 2012 at 5:24 am

what a gorgeous look on you! also the previous post re: dustin was very informative, thanks! what is the undertone of your skin? would this combo work for someone w/ slightly more yellow/green undertone (but light-to-medium skin).


Reika February 13, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Hi Lisa, my undertone is quite neutral, neither too pink nor too yellow, so I am quite lucky with being able to pull off a variety of colors in that department. I personally think the combo is universally flattering on any skin tone! The warm undertone of BORDEAUX perfectly balances out the cool undertone of Corinthian.


Walls February 10, 2012 at 9:18 am

Wow, beautiful look! This colour palette works so well with your freckles!


Rowena February 13, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Love the look and photography.
Which camera do you use?


Rainy Days & Lattes February 16, 2012 at 4:41 am

You look amazing! I love your eye makeup and the way you apply your mascara 🙂 Elegant!


jhoanne luna February 17, 2012 at 7:48 am
