The stunning Le MÃ©tier de BeautÃ© cosmetics line, exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman stores and a few select Neiman Marcus, features a wide range of luxurious beauty products with gorgeous packaging, unique colors, and lovely textures.
Here’s an exclusive look at some of the fun, modern, yet classic products Le MÃ©tier de BeautÃ© has to offer.
Kaleidoscope Kits — â€œblending tradition and vision, creativity and innovation,â€ the kits are comprised of four colors presented in a unique stacking system with a flip-top mirror. They come in varieties available for lips, eyes, and face, each retailing for $95.

- Rose Champagne: a soft shimmery pale rose-pink
- Alexandrite: a sparkly eggplant amethyst
- Canvas: a soft, satin, neutral fawn-cream
- Sequoia: a matte, cool, dark chocolate brown
Galatea Eye Kit
The Galatea Eye Kit features four unnamed shadows not available individually:
- a soft, satin pale buttercream

Sheer Brilliance Lip Glosses

The Sheer Brilliance Lip Glosses are my favorite products in the line — pure luxury in a tube, and I want them all!
They have a sparkly, glossy finish and a non-tacky texture that’s lightweight yet moisturizing. Colors are sheer but substantial enough to show on the lips. They retail for $32 each.
Lip Creme Lip Gloss
Left to right: Sunset Boulevard (gift with purchase), Apricot Creme, Peche Creme, Papaye Creme, Sweet Creme, Fraise Creme
Hybrid lipstick/glosses, the Lip Creme Lip Glosses ($36) are super-pigmented, with a lightweight texture, intense color and a shiny finish. A little goes a long way, and they glide on the lips.
Color Core Moisture Stain Lipstick

The Color Core Moisture Stain Lipsticks ($32) have a long-lasting stain-like formula with a surprisingly creamy texture.
They do feel more like a stain than the typical lipstick, but once applied, they remain blendable while still staying put.
Where to buy
The Le MÃ©tier line is sold online and at just seven stores in the US, making it pretty hard to see in person.
NOTE:Bergdorf periodically holds what are called Beauty and Incircle events at which time they include nice gifts with purchase.
Unfortunately, swatches don’t always capture true colors. I’ve placed orders both online and in person at three of their physical locations. Once you’ve seen them in person, I highly recommend calling a counter to place your orders. The company’s product specialists are very knowledgeable and patient in describing things and making product recommendations.
