When Le Metier de Beaute invited me to Neiman Marcus at The Shops of La Cantera, I expected to discover an exquisite line of beauty
products.  What I did not expect was to
discover an equally exquisite product specialist in Larre Foulkes.  Larre is our own physician to the women of San Antonio….just
waiting in Neiman’s to help us discover our best selves.
I did my research before the appointment, so I knew this
beauty line was created by women for women and often improved by listening to
its customer’s desires and suggestions, but experiencing the product line is a
must and that placed me in the capable hands of Larre.   He came to San Antonio through his work at
Bergdorf Goodman’s in NYC.  During my
makeup removal, I learned he loves New York; tears up over his time working side by side with iconic fashion designer Halston; and he never misses a live performance with Liza Minnelli!!
Larre assists Dana, one of his regular customers, with selecting a new lip color.  
He is one busy man…during my time with him, customers were
stopping by to grab a hug or ask a question, and his phone was ringing with
customer needs.  One of his faithful,
Dana, even stayed to watch Larre do my makeover.  We both agreed that he must write a beauty
book…he is full of beauty tips to give confidence to the woman over 50.  Being in our age bracket, gives him
understanding about all we go through when facing a mirror each day.
Instant results with the skincare line.
While he exfoliated, peeled, and toned my skin, he also did
the same to my hand in order for me to see the instant difference.  Gigi can tell a difference between my two
hands even today…three days away from the treatments!  The toner accented with lavender and cinnamon
is fabulous and even works to tighten as well…something I need every day.  In a short time, with very little product, my
skin felt as smooth as it does after receiving a facial at a spa.  In fact, it was the same relaxing experience with Neiman’s providing a choice of water or wine while sitting through the makeover.
I met Corky when I first arrived.  She is new to the line, but ended up
purchasing from the eye and lip selections!  She has gorgeous skin
tones.
He knew I was scheduled to meet two designers in store
afterwards, so Larre made sure I looked amazing.  He selected colors for eyes and cheeks I
would not have picked and the results made me wonder why I had never worn the colors before. 
The foundation had the same instant absorption as a tinted moisturizer.  From skin care to makeup, this line requires
very little product to accomplish the tasks and several items have multiple
uses. 
  I highly recommend the line, and
if you are in the area….you must go see Larre!!  Email me if you would like his phone number and be sure to tell him over50feeling40 sent you his
way!!
