Usually I feel like months just pass by and my Le Metier de Beaute Vault VIP shipments come faster than I can try the products inside. Well, not this time. In December I found myself stalking the tracking number every step of the way, because I really wanted to see if we’re getting something special for the Holidays.
HOW IT WORKS
As a Vault VIP for $348/year you will receive a full-sized product or assortment of products every month, curated by our Beauté experts. Members of The Vault will also have the opportunity to try exclusive, limited-edition items and pre-releases of the brand’s latest and greatest before anyone else gets their hands on them.
The sign ups will become available again only in July 2015.
In December, all Vault VIP members received two True Colour Eye Shadows in limited edition silver packaging, formulated exclusively for this program, and not sold anywhere else. The colors don’t have official names, but the card describes them as Deep Emerald Green and Shimmery Sand-White.
Le Metier de Beaute is known for their intensely pigmented eye shadows, and I always welcome new additions to my makeup kit. I also mentioned this in one of my earlier Vault VIP reviews, but True Colour pans are significantly bigger than most other eye shadow singles on the market, and make a worthy investment if you plan to use them a lot. I already made a pretty large dent in my Goldstone single, because I use it several times a week since I got it, and if the pan was regular-sized, it would have been empty!
Both colors are really festive, and remind me of lights on a Christmas tree. The sandy shimmer works well as a base color, or a highlighter, while the deep emerald green makes the perfect accent. It makes a great eyeliner or a crease color, and really stays on the lids to the point where I can’t even rub it off.
The formula is truly the best it can be with eye shadows. It offers bold color payoff, great longevity and blendability, and even the price isn’t too bad considering the size of the pans. If I can spot a good promotion or a coupon, I will definitely grab a few more True Colour singles for my collection.
