None, we say.
On the coattails of their Fall 2010 fashion week collaboration the two brands but their heads together to create the Marchesa for Le Métier de Beauté collection. It consists of a well-appointed melange of dual-ended lip glosses, illumination pens, highlighting powder and a brightening liquid-to-powder concealer, but so far our favorite is The La Lune palette, $65, crafted by Marchesa co-cfounder and designer Georgina Chapman.
No bigger than a credit card, it still manages to house all the essentials for an evening out -- translucent pressed powder, concealer, lip gloss in La Cerise Noir (a black cherry), cream blush in La Peche (a peachy pink), and eye shadow in Le Minuit (a deep blue-black).
"Each season, Keren Craig and I introduce a new collection, but with the classic and consistent signature that is Marchesa – we transport our customers back to a time when luxury fashion meant the best in tailoring, design, fabric, etc. When it came to launching a cosmetics collection, we wanted to do the same and we found immediately that Le Métier de Beauté shared these same core values," says Georgina Chapman.
"The Collection takes the unparalleled textures and formulas Le Métier de Beauté is known for and transfixes them with the essence of Marchesa," says Joanna Vorachek Austin, president of Le Métier de Beauté. "From the sleek packaging and the innovative formulas to the flawless application, the Marchesa for Le Métier de Beauté collaboration brings the best of both brands to the forefront of luxury."
The collection will hit the shelves at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus this September, so grab one while you can and get going on that glam smoky eye.
