Le Metier De Beaute True Colour Eye Shadow: Fig

Le Metier De Beaute is a brand I’d not really paid much attention to until fairly recently, because the products were a bit tricky to get hold of here in the UK. I had read a lot of positive reviews on various different products from the brand though, and a few items in particular had really caught my eye. It wasn’t until just before Christmas that I noticed BeautyBay had started to stock LMDB products and were offering free postage on orders, so I decided to grab a couple of shadows that I’d had my eye on.

Here’s what Le Metier De Beaute say out their true colour eye shadows: 

A full range of complimentary and highly-blendable shades, used alone or in combination to give radiant dimension to the eyes. Superior fine-pressed quality gives true buildable color—smooth together for subtle gradations or layer colors on, one atop another, in semi-translucent layers for a perfectly dimensional effect. Goes on perfectly even. Our quadruple milling process transforms pigments to luxurious weightlessness, strong coverage and their truest, most vibrant color.

Fig is a shade I’d seen reviewed and swatched a few times on different blogs, it’s a beautiful, deep, rich, burgundy colour, and seemed like a good option for creating a winter, smoky eye.

As I mentioned, Fig is actually the first product I’ve tried from Le Metier De Beaute. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the brands pigmented, silky smooth eye shadows and I have to say, I completely agree with all the positive reviews. They are rich, buttery and exceptionally smooth, and they apply brilliantly. The colour pay off with Fig is rich and intense, but the silky smooth formula blends incredibly well.

I attempted a quick photo to show what Fig looks like applied. In the picture, I'm wearing the shade alone with a little bit of liner and mascara. Although the colour does look pretty applied all over the lid, I've mainly been using fig as an outer v/crease shade along with a couple of colours to create a slightly less dramatic look.

And swatched on my NC20 ish arm. 


Fig really is a beautiful shade and I’m glad I’ve added it to my collection. I’m extremely impressed with how pigmented and smooth Le Metier De Beaute’s formula is, and with how well their shadows apply. I imagine I’ll be adding more shades from the range to my collection in the future, and after trying the brand’s shadows, will definitely be giving some of the other lovely products from the line a try, too.

 Available from Beautybay & Zuneta (£25.00).


  1. This is exactly the kind of color that scares me, but lately I've really been wishing I could wear it! Maybe I will have to find one to give it a shot. Perhaps L'oreal Smouldering Plum. I really like the look you did with that half brown wing - it's so lovely!

    1. Thanks Larie! I've always been a little bit scared of these sorts of colours, too, but decided to experiment with them and have fallen in love with plums, purples and burgundies. I googled Smouldering Plum - it looks like a fantastic shade!

  2. Woah Fig is stunning on you! Is your eye look with Fig only? Because like... wow, I need to get my hands on it!

    1. Thanks Annick! Yep, just Fig and a bit of liner and mascara. It is a lovely shade!

  3. You really are into plum shades. This one is lovely and complements your eye colour so well. :) We don't have this brand in Canada but I hear it's fantastic.

  4. Thanks Liz, I really can't get enough of 'em at the moment :). It's a shame the brand's not available in Canada, the shadows really are fantastic and I've heard really good things about other products from the range, too.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate and read each and every one of them!
