Le Métier de Beauté Indelible Inks Eyeliners ($28 each) are a remarkably beautiful and long-lasting pair of liners that live up to their name. I’ve been wearing these continuously for about two weeks. When I say “continuously,” I mean that in both senses of the word–I can wear these overnight without crumbling, fading or irritation, and the colors are so beautiful that I’ve had a hard time emotionally choosing any other liner in my collection as a substitute.
Le Metier liners come in two shades, including Artemis–a shimmering deep blue.
The color is rich and saturated enough to use instead of a black. Sometimes colored liners are so light or anemic that I really do need to pair them with a richer color to get proper definition. Not so with Le Metier’s Artemis. This is richly pigmented deep blue that shows the color beautifully without any other color. It looks amazing with a nude eye, for example Nars All about Eve duo eyeshadow or other soft beige. This gives a well-defined, but subtly brightened color.
Do not fear the brush, gentle readers. It’s quite easy peasy. After experimenting (although I stopped short of cutting the brush short with scissors), I found the best method of application for me is to lay the brush lengthwise along my lashline and to pull it horizontally across my upper lid. This gives me a rich swath of even color (once is enough for both of these Le Metier colors). I might use the tip of the brush for under eye definition, except I don’t wear liner there. My point is, it’s a perfectly workable brush.
Le Metier de Beauté Indelible Inks Eyeliners is also available in Casatalia, a rich purple with far less shimmer compared to Artemis. The formula is otherwise identical–all-day (and all-night) wear, great coverage in a single swipe, awesome rich color.
Here are swatches of Le Metier shimmery Artemis and not-shimmery Castalia:
Overall: These Le Metier Indelible Inks are winners. Slightly addictive, they stay on through everything and remove nicely with a good oil or dual-phase cleanser.
