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 Nordstrom.com.
|L-R: Crystal Ball, Empire, Rockette, Sugar Plum|
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.
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.
