Spa Night at the LinuxFest!

First: I want to welcome those who I met from the Family Scholar House gala last night. It was a pleasure meeting you all, and I hope you visit this page for my favorite music, horse racing picks and spiritual progress. No guarantee you will win something, though. But you get to read about those…

Detailed look at Chanel’s LA Sunrise

As I promised, I came back to Von Maur. The Beverly Hills quad has not arrived, maybe for a few weeks. Will call or visit another store next month. I’ve posted up a synth track by Midnight Driver. You should press play and enjoy “Laser” while you are looking at these pictures. This collection has…

Chanel LA Sunrise Mini Haul (Spring 2016)

Short post, want to cover this in further detail. Got a phone call from Von Maur a few days ago that Chanel’s LA Sunrise collection came in. I went tonight and all except the Beverly Hills eyeshadow quad is available. They might get it tomorrow, so I’ll be going there for full pictures of everything…

LMdB VIP program: not renewing.

I got my email invite to re-join Le Métier de Beauté Beauty Vault. After consideration and a realistic look at my makeup stash, I decided not to join. Here are the reasons why: 1) My budget is tight right now. (Then again, most people’s budget is tight.) I had a car accident and I needed…

Nice product, WRONG skin color.

I just got the LMdB VIP package for this month, and I got this: It has a value of $75 according to Neiman Marcus, but to me, it’s worthless. It’s made to fight signs of ageing, and cover imperfections. It is suitable for all skin types. But I cannot use it. I’m too dark for…

Le Métier de Beauté VIP Subscription, February 2014

Enjoyed the 2014 Symposia at Concordia Theological Seminary, and it was nice to see some of my classmates from Irvine attending. Had two meals with them. Wore my Burberry Military Red as I want to convey a confident “aura”. Felt like I am blessed with a good career and a wonderful husband. My mind felt…

LMdB VIP Box, December ’13 and January ’14

Sorry I missed a post for the December installment. My work kept me from posting. LMdB specially packed December’s gift in tinsel and red boxes. It’s a face kaleidoscope, with blush, bronzer, highlighter, and setting powder. Did not use it, as I forgot how to use bronzer and highlighter. I am more interested in lipsticks…

LMdB VIP Subscription: November

Last month, I received Le Métier De Beauté’s Peau Vierge Dark Spot Corrector. I did not review it as I am currently trying it on my face. It is a serum that suppose to make one’s complexion better. I think there is some kind of improvement, but it is subjective. At Saks and Neiman Marcus,…

Nope, not gonna.

This is the first time that I have to issue a trigger alert, all because of MAKEUP, of all things. So if you are a survivor of violence, this post will reference and link unsavory pictures.

Le Métier de Beauté VIP Subscription, September 2013

I came back from work when I saw a small box at my door. Could be…? It isn’t everyday you get a note from a CEO who is also a Founder of a luxury brand. YES INDEED! It’s here, LMdB’s September box! And starting off on a positive note, a handwritten letter from the CEO.…

Le Métier de Beauté VIP Subscription Box (Aug 13)

Last month, I saved for LMdB’s VIP programme. For an upfront fee of about $340, subscribers will receive makeup and skincare products from the high-end cosmetic company. From what I have read, many customers jump at the offer. If you divide the sum, it’s a monthly sum of $29, about 8 dollars more per month…

Le Métier de Beauté’s ALS Thank You Package

Sometime ago, Le Métier de Beauté has their fundraiser for the ALS Association. This was important, since Wayne’s mother and one of my professors (Dr Kurt Marquart) died from Lou Gehrig’s Disease. So I donated some money, and today, I received this package from LMdB: The thank you note was a nice touch. This is…

Thank you, Saks! Le Metier de Beaute’s Face Kit

Some time ago, Saks Fifth Avenue had a promo for their new loyalty programme. The first 500 people who ordered online and used their card would receive a $100 credit. At the same time, I hit my first Weight Watchers milestone. That was a great excuse to reward myself, so I ordered a Burberry lipstick…

Urban Decay F&F Sale Haul

I have eyeshadows from various brands, but most of them comes from Urban Decay. I like their wide range of colors and it is affordable. I remember going to the newly opened Hot Topic at Northridge Mall and I would get the nail polish and ABC Gum colored lipstick. Now, they “matured” and got acquired…
