One distinct silver gown is the source of inspiration for Marchesa for Lé Métier de Beauté, a color cosmetics collection that celebrates the intersection of luxury and technology.  Joanna Voracheck Austin, President of Lé Métier de Beauté summed up the venture best: “From the sleek packaging and the innovative formulas to the flawless application, the Marchesa for Lé Métier de Beauté collaboration brings the best of both brands to the forefront of luxury.” Prices range from $38 – $65.

Designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman created custom credit card sized palettes, each unique to the individual’s personality and appearance. In La Lune, Georgina’s pale complexion and rich brunette locks are complimented nicely by La Cerise Noir, a blackberry lipgloss, and La Peche, a peachy-pink cream blush. Also included in La Lune are a concealer, translucent pressed powder and a midnight purple eyeshadow.  Use the midnight shadow and layer the blackberry lip gloss to take your look from demure by day to bombshell by night.

For Le Soleil, Keren’s blonde hair and warm skin tone served as the inspiration for the bronzed, beachy tones. To complete the sun kissed look, the palette includes La Rougeur, a tawny crème blush, Le Fauve, a warmed purple metallic shadow, as well as a caramel-inspired lip gloss and concealer. For warmer skin tones, this palette can be the ultimate work horse.

Taking the design duality of Marchesa one step further, the Double Extendre Lip Glosses combine Lé Métier de Beauté’s Lip Crème and Sheer Brilliance formulas into four dual-ended lip glosses. La Figue/La Raisin pairs a pigmented neutral plum with a sheered metallic plum, La Figue/La Clace brings together a sheered red with a metallic mauve, L’embrasse/Le Passion introduces a warmed neutral to a shimmering pink, and La Rogue/La Nue combines a dazzling raspberry with a lightened pink.

Marchesa for Le Metier de Beaute - Gloss 212 872 8612 Rounding out the collection are two Sheer Illumination pens. Formulated with not only color in mind, these formulas include cucumber, mango, papaya, vitamin E and other ingredients designed to lift, nourish and calm the eye area. The Sheer Illumination Highlighter is a neutral gold, ideal for mixing with under eye concealer, enhancing cheekbones, or reviving a tired complexion. The Sheer Illumination Brightener’s liquid to powder formula can be used to diminish dark circles and lightly conceal while brightening.

Marchesa for Le Metier de Beaute - Sheer Illumination Pen 212 872 8612Overall, the collection was incredibly well thought out. The two personalities of the designers are well represented, from the color choices to the infinite color possibilities — the products pack a two-for-one punch. The best part? If you aren’t able to own one of Marchesa’s gorgeous creations, you can still experience their commitment to classic fashion through luxury via this collection.
