Le Metier de Beaute Magic At Dusk NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 21 - 2010

Easily my most expensive bottle ml for ml… Le Metier de Beaute’s Magic at Dusk was released alongside their autumn/fall collection this year and I couldn’t resist picking it up.

It’s an exquisite mix of blue and purple that looks positively electric on the nails but for all that… I don’t have a huge amount of love for this polish.

It’s a 3/4 coater and for this depth of colour… we should be able to achieve opacity in 2 coats.

You also only get 4ml of product for £10, so I’m estimating that the manicure shown above has cost me at least a quid.  It’s a very fast drying polish but the tiny brush is difficult to wield with any grace which resulted in drag marks across the nail bed and the need for a 4th coat.

I pretty much dislike everything about this polish except for the colour.

    Nice colour, but why is that bottle all glass and no product?! How annoying about the application – when you pay premium prices, you expect it to go on like a dream! x

    I’m shocked about the tiny container – frankly I’d rather pay 20£ for 8ml even though it’s just as expensive. The colour is beautiful though.

    OMG! I have pillows in this color!
    (I swear, I’m actually a serious thoughtful person, just not when it comes to indulging my love of beauty – then I turn into a 14 year old fangirl, apparently!)

  6. Wow that’s expensive! Beautiful color though, I think it looks somewhat similar to China Glaze First Class Ticket :)

    That’s a pretty shade but the bottle’s too small and what a shame that application is so annoying. I would have expected better considering the price.

    I’ve never seen a color like that before, that’s gorgeous!
    How do you paint your nails like that? The bottom part looks SO perfect :]

    There must be a cheaper dupe for this somewhere. Revlon?
