Lip Service: UMA PARO (Le Metier de Beaute)

I believe I’ve found my perfect Spring shade:

This lipstick color is so perfect for my warm skin tone. I am head over heels in love. And the formula isn’t so dense that you can’t wear it with a little mascara and go. You can sheer it out or wear it full on. Love.

Eye Adore: Le Metier de Beaute Indelible Ink (Castalia)


Le Metier de Beaute wants to paint the world with color this Spring… with Indelible Inks.

The two colors are Artemis (midnight navy re-release), and Castalia (deep purple). I found the formula dense, and the color rich and opaque (not thin or sheer, like some liquid liners tend to be). One swipe and you’re good to go!

Indelible Ink Eye Liner in Castalia
I’m typically not a fan of liquid eyeliners (I find them messy and hard to control), but this product is doing a spectacular job of changing my mind. The formula is dense enough to manipulate like a gel liner, but still thin enough to apply like a traditional liquid. And once it sets, it doesn’t budge. I had to wash this swipe off with makeup remover. Totally awesome.

FOTD: Jewel Tones

It’s been so hot that the idea of wearing makeup is less than appealing. But I broke my ‘bare faced’ streak and applied a little color for this FOTD:

FOTD: Orange Stuff

A little matte, a little shimmer… some sheer, some not. I mixed a lot of different textures for this FOTD, but kept the overall theme pretty ‘orange.’
