Hailed as a long time cult favorite of makeup artists and gurus alike, luxury beauty brand Le Metier de Beaute has somehow been flying under my radar...until now. I recently chatted with the brand's Senior VP to find out why beauty insiders are obsessing over this brand. And you know what, it's all in the technology. The brand holds 28 patents as they work with a team of scientists to formulate groundbreaking innovations to sculpt the art of beauty. Perhaps the only brand with a skincare manual that reads like a biology book, the science behind the products is intoxicating and speaks to the logical reasoning lawyer in me. That and their packaging is so so fab.
Technology isn't cheap as Le Metier de Beaute products range from $25 for a lipstick to almost $300 for their legendary peel system. It's definitely not a beauty lifestyle brand but strategic purchases can go a long way. My bet is on their anti-aging creams, the tinted moisturizer that launched the brand, and their highly pigmented shadows and blushes. Next time you're at Neiman's, visit their counter, ask for a little touch-up, get a sample, and who knows, you might just discover a new side of beauty.
