November Le Métier de Beauté VIP Vault

on November 22, 2014

Happy November everyone!

Once again, the month got away from me a bit and its taken me wayyyy too long to get this post up. My Saturday night consists of home improvement shows, sweatpants, a bottle of wine and catching up on some blog posts. Very glamorous over here, folks.

I have to say that I think this month’s Le Métier de Beauté VIP Vault is disappointing. It seems almost like a gift with purchase. I know for a fact that the September GWP at Neiman’s was 2 mascaras at $34 each. So maybe this just means that the December Vault shipment is going to be amazing?

I opened the very light box to find this nice little LMdB makeup bag:


Enclosed were 4 products:


Previous shipments included a description card, but I couldn’t find anything this month. So I’m sticking with my GWP theory…

LMdB only makes 3 Dualistic Lip Liner colors – Nudite, Rouge and Rose. I received Nudite and Rouge – I haven’t had a chance to scroll through the Makeup Talk boards to see if anyone else received other shades. Nudite is a staple in my makeup bag – this is a wonderful pink-brown hue that compliments my natural lip shade. I am happy to have a backup of this! Rouge is a lovely pink-nude that would look wonderful on so many skin tones. For everyone looking for that perfect (CRINGE) Kylie Jenner lip color, this might be a great option.

Like my heart art?

I was going to dismiss the samples, until I read Glamorable’s post putting a value of the Peau Vierge Revitalizing Anti-Aging Day Crème at $28.50 (full-size $285) and the Peau Vierge Revitalizing Anti-Aging Night Crème at $35 (full-size $350). When you put it that way…

So let’s break it down:

2 Dualistic Lip Liners @ $36 each = $72

Peau Vierge Revitalizing Anti-Aging Day Crème sample = $28.50

Peau Vierge Revitalizing Anti-Aging Night Crème sample = $35

November total: $135.50


Previous months:

– August – After Dark Total Kaleidoscope valued at $95

– September – Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe valued at $175

– October – Goldfinger Kaleidoscope Palette valued at $95

Total VIP program value to date: $500.50

Holy moly. The program cost break-even point was at 3 months. At 4 months, we have almost hit the 6-month value of the 2013 program, which was just over $1,100. This is insane. I have high hopes for December, in particular I have my hopes set on this little gem that is being sold exclusively through Net-A-Porter right now. Refinery29 broke the news about this last week and I’m itching to get my hands on it. While we have already received 2 lovely kaleidoscopes this year, I w0uld not turn down the Obsidian Odyssey Eye Kaleidoscope or the Obsidian Odyssey Lip and Cheek Kaleidoscope, which are exclusive to Neiman Marcus.
