Le Metier De Beaute Beauty Vault VIP Subscription Review – August

Le Metier De Beaute Beauty Vault VIP Subscription Review - August

A few weeks ago I posted about the Le Metier De Beaute Beauty Vault VIP Subscription – for a limited time only, you could sign up for a whole year of their subscription. This was a pricey subscription and I really didn’t like paying $348 upfront without seeing a single box, but I wanted to be a VIP! Also, Le Metier De Beaute beauty products get great reviews – so I decided to give them $348! (It still hurts a little when I look at the price tag!) FYI – sign ups for this box are currently closed. When they open again I’ll post about it though!

Fortunately, this box arrived looking just like what I would expect a VIP box to look like – beautiful!

One thing I was looking for in this box was a card detailing each product they selected for August. They didn’t include anything like that this month, but I hope they start soon!

Kaleidoscope Eye Kit – Value $95

Ok – I’m not going to complain about the $348 price tag if this trend of sending very expensive full-size makeup in each box continues!

This eye shadow quad is beautiful!

I love these lighter champagne colors, I will definitely use these the most, and the bolder colors on occasion!

Lipstick – Value $32

This lip stick didn’t have any label on it – so I’m not sure what the color name is, but the shade is gorgeous!

Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Noir – Value $42

I have a lot of pencil eyeliners, but not many liquid marker-tip pencils, so this item was a win for me as well!

Kabuki Brush – Value $85

This item was the bonus gift for signing up for the Vault VIP subscription. (There will only be a bonus gift in the first month’s box). It’s beautiful like everything else in this box, and I love that it comes with it’s own little felt carrier case!

Verdict: The value of this box is insane! I paid $29 for this box, and received over $250 worth of high-end beauty products. I am so glad I signed up, and I really hope they continue to send out amazing boxes like there! Did you sign up for the Le Metier De Beaute Beauty Vault VIP Subscription? What did you get in your first box?

  1. When you posted about the sign ups for this being open, I decided that I couldn’t justify spending that much money all at once, but this is now the 4th time that I return to this review and I’m drooling at all of the gorgeous products. Maybe I will splurge next time its open…

    Thank you for the great review, and beautiful pictures!

  2. HOLY WOW! That’s impressive and very worth the subscription. If I had extra cash, I would totally sign up for this!

  3. I’m not familiar with this brand and therefore couldn’t justify shelling out over $300, even though it’s over a year. This looks like a really great box . . . hopefully they will continue through the rest of the year!

  4. I wish it was open to Canadians!

  5. My box should be delivered today. Trying to restrain myself from leaving work early to go open it! I’m keeping my fingers crossed in hopes that I get the eye shadow kalidoscope.

  6. I got my box yesterday. Everything was the same in my box except for the kaleidoscope, I received the blush one. Super jealous i love your eyeshadow colors but i cant complain because the blush is gorgeous too. And the precision eye liner is one of my FAV LMdB products so I was super excited about that. I also got a hand written card from LMdB thanking me for signing up for the program which I thought was a really nice touch. Looking forward to seeing what the next 11 months bring.

    • Just as a side note for anyone wanting to sub to this next year, they do accept paypal as a form of payment. I was able to use the bill me later option which gives me 6 months interest free to pay the $348. A little easier on the wallet :)

      • THanks a bunch!!

  7. OMG! I want this box, but for that $$…Maybe next time.

  8. wow, amazing. ugh, too expensive for me right now. enjoy!!!

  9. Love this! Simply can’t afford it right now, but at least you are sure to get your money’s worth. The eyeshadow quad is absolutely gorgeous. I love shimmery nudes.
