Le Métier de Beauté Summer Haute House Hues: Indian Summer

More guerrilla swatches! This time of the latest Le Métier de Beauté Summer Haute House Hues Indian Summer set (it's a mouthful, I know). Copper Leaf immediately reminded me of Silk Road nail polish from last fall, and while I don't have a comparison picture, it looks exactly the same in the tube. You can imagine how ecstatic that made me. Silk Road is my all-time favorite polish from the brand.

L-R: Ginger Snap, Copper Leaf, Chocolate Creme, Cocoa Creme

I was surprised to find that Ginger Snap features the Lip Creme formula. Since it was so sheer, it felt more like a Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss. It doesn't do much but add a bit of color and shimmer to the lips, but sometimes that's exactly what a girl wants.

In the pictures below, I applied Copper Leaf and layered it with Ginger Snap. 

I didn't manage to swatch the two orange nail polishes because my nails were freshly manicured when I went to the counter. Shawn (the Boston LMdB artist) sacrificed his fingers to show me how it looked and it turned out to be pumpkin-y, which I felt would accentuate every tinge of yellow in my skin. For those who are interested, theultimatemakeup provided swatches and comparison shots, as well as a detailed review.

Le Métier de Beauté Summer Haute House Hues Indian Summer set retails for $65 and should be available at Bergdorf's and all Neiman Marcus counters. The Neiman Marcus Camp Gorgeous event began a couple of days ago, but there is still time (ends June 10) to stock up on beauty goods. The Le Métier de Beauté GWP is a discontinued Bella Bronzer and the cutest mini Traviata blush/bronzer duo, and will be yours with a purchase of $125 and above. If you don't have a Neiman Marcus counter near you, you can contact Traci Dastou at 617-536-3660 x2111 and she will definitely help you with your order. You can also contact Dustin Lujan of Bergdorf's at 212-872-8612 (though I don't think Bergdorf's offers the GWP). Do let them know I sent you!


  1. Wow, Copper Leaf is SO pretty! It's so metallic yet delicate and wearable--you look beautiful in it!

  2. Copper Leaf is such an interesting color, and the softness of Ginger Snap balances it out. I'm going to have fun combining both with Chauvet.

  3. YAY for you and this post! I just did my order. I got the gloss duo here and the Traviata Blush duo. Such an awesome GWP! LMdB always has the best ones

  4. Copper Leaf is gorgeous! Must investigate for autumn potential.

  5. i really like your blog..have fun reading it

  6. Becca- apparently applying Ginger Snap first then layering Copper Leaf over is EVEN BETTER!

    Leigh- very good idea! Though I feel like all those things together might be a tad warm

    Brooke- And Bella Bronzer!? I haven't cracked that open yet but I'm exciteddd

    Maggie- Yes! Paired with Silk Road, if you have it :D

    Cisco- Thank you for the kind words!
