Le Metier de Beaute: Splendid Frost Eye Kaleidoscope

Finally, after almost a month after receiving the Le Metier de Beaute products, I thought I would show you some photos of the limited edition Eye Kaleidoscope in Splendid Frost. When I got my LMdB package I just couldn't stop looking at the beautiful colours in this Kaleidoscope. Unfortunatelly, Le Metier de Beaute is not available in the UK at the moment/any more, but you can still get this palette online at

L-R: Crystal Ball, Empire, Rockette, Sugar Plum
The colours are gorgeous, very soft and pigmented (I was afraid that they might be too sheer) and the colour combination is very rich and quite unexpected with the pink and grey thrown in.

First up is Crystal Ball, a beautiful shimmery mixture of gold, taupe and olive, it looks gorgeous as a simple wash over the eyelids.

The weird eye shadow in the bunch is probably the matte medium grey Empire but it is surprisingly very versatile, I use it mainly in the crease to smoke out other colours.

Rockette is a shimmery warm pink that works beautifully as a blush as well.

Lastly, there is Sugar Plum, a smoky blue with lots of very fine pink glitter. 

As with all Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscopes this one is also limited edition so I thought that I would just show you some quick swatches of the colours compared to some other similar eye shadows that I have. Unfortunatelly, I don't have any similar colours to the grey Empire (I never thought I'd be able to say that!)
L-R: LMdB Crystal Ball, theBalm Insane Jane, MAC Satin Taupe

L-R: LMdB Rockette, blushes: Shu Uemura Pink P 30, Estee Lauder Pink Kiss, Nars Deep Throat
L-R: LMdB Sugar Plum, MAC Flashtrack, Estee Lauder Amethyste, theBalm Bossy Bobbi
As I said the texture of the eye shadows is lovely and the only one that has a little bit of fallout is the shimmery Sugar Plum. I'm planning on taking some photos showing you how the eye shadows look on the eyes (in a week, two weeks, who knows?). I really like the combination of Crystal Ball and Empire, but I haven't really given the Rockette much attention yet. Let me know if you have any suggestions or questions about the Kaleidoscope.

The Le Metier de Beaute Eye Kaleidoscope in Splendid Frost is limited edition and it costs 95 $, the eye shadows are generously sized and each one weighs a bit more than 2 grams.

  3. I think it's a really stunning and quite unique combination of colours. I really look forward to seeing how they look on the eyes. Even though you can't get it here in the UK, I do enjoy admiring it :)

  4. Hi Replica, I was already very late doing this post but better late than never, right? I would really love it if LMdB were available online in Europe (zuneta, mise beauty or some similar online store). x Klara

    Hi Steph, it looks even more beautiful in real life :) x Klara

    Hi Jane, the colours are really gorgeous and even my boyfriend was fascinated by the packaging. I really wish LMdB were more widely available - but maybe we just need an excuse for a short trip to Printemps, Paris. x Klara

  5. Forgot to mention something, maybe???? :P


  6. This looks lovely, really interesting combination. I really like the top and bottom shades. I've been lusting after this for ages and fingers crossed have one coming from America soon, so excited! Thanks for the post, and I think a trip to Paris is definitely in order! x

  7. Hi Nika, the answer would be: Nope ;)
    Hi Jennifer, that's great news, I think you'll really love the colours. I might do an EOTD post this weekend - I wore all the colours together on Saturday and it made a beautiful blue smokey eye. x Klara
