Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle

A few days back I mentioned how I met Kim McFadden from Le Metier de Beaute and shared what I learned about the line and the quality behind the beauty.  For those that are fans of the limited edition Silk Road Kaleidoscope (top) and weren’t able to get their hands on it – it is available in limited quantities at the MN Neiman Marcus. There is a gift with purchase of the Silk Road.  I’ve heard that other stores have long been sold out and this kit has been on eBay for more than double the price!  No need to do that when you can get it in MN!

Kim will also be featuring the new Le Metier de Beaute Spring Collection called Northern Lights.


The kaleidoscope contains four shades in cool and warm tones ranging in a golden peach, ice silver, a medium deep bronze and a clear purple. A compilation of glowing shades like the northern lights we had here a few weeks back.


The spring lip kaleidoscope is called Aurora and it too contains four shades from both cool and warm tones meant for either wearing individually or layering. They are in the creamy gloss and satin finish ranging from vibrant pinks to warm coral tones.

The three new nail polishes for spring are an ocean blue/green, a pink/red and salmon toned lacquers. As I’ve said for all the spring colors this year – one can’t be afraid of vibrant shades!   These items can be pre-ordered by calling Amy at 612.339-2600 ext 2216 and highly recommend you do as once they are gone, they are gone!  (You don’t have to live in MN for that) Plus, if you pre-order between now and February 23rd and purchase a Kaleidoscope you get a gift of a free gloss. But, if you purchase $300 or more in LMdB then you get a full-size, not yet for sale, tissue off cleanser! Then beginning on February 24th – March 6th, Neiman’s is having Beauty Week – so of course with your LMdB purchase you will get whatever bag and beauty goodies that Neiman’s will be offering for their Beauty Week.

Of course Le Metier de Beaute will have another seasonal collection with Ken Downing featuring two new glosses and three nail polishes – all the 2012 Spring Collection including this one from Ken Downing is limited edition.



These vibrant shades remind me of fresh, beautiful tropical fruit. Don’t they make you happy just by looking at them?!  Happy Spring!
