This is possibly the foundation to end all foundation hunts. I promise you. The Le Metier de Beaute Flawless Finish foundation promises you all kinds of magic in a bottle, and trust me, it delivers.

The brand is really famous among makeup enthusiasts for the Kaleidoscope makeup kits, that run over $100 most of the time. I personally didn’t care for the Kaleidoscopes, I just didn’t like the packaging or the format. But I had heard that they had a beauty subscription (that will run you $348 up front for the whole year), called the vault and I wanted to check it up so I went to the website. By the time I got to it, the subscription was closed for the year, but they had items from previous boxes for sale.

He was friends with the original super models and a slew of the designers so he could usually be seen in the tents in the early 90’s. Talk about a ridiculously kind, humble, personable individual that always seemed slightly uncomfortable with the adulation he received. Beyond that, there was just some indefinable quality about his music, post Faith after he found his own voice, that’s simultaneously uplifting and despairing. Listen Without Prejudice Vol. I is still my favourite album. So really, is anyone reealllyy sad to see 2016 go?
