An Overview of my Le Metier De Beaute Kaleidoscope

Le Metier De Beaute's Kaleidoscopes

I'm currently working on taking pictures of each kaleidoscope in detail. I know having to bring a toddler to and from everywhere I go can be a turn off from me wanting to go and browse leisurely at a cosmetic counter. Having a toddler sometimes forces you to need an exit strategy - a way to get in and out effectively, with what you want. I've mentioned before that pictures on websites can vary greatly from those that are taken in detail by bloggers. My aim is to help you, the reader, get a more accurate picture of how beautiful each shadow is (each kaleidoscope possess a color that blows me a way with their complexity and uniqueness).

I've only started seriously liking Le Metier de Beaute (LMdB) about six months ago, but in that time I have amassed a fairly decent and respectable collection, including five total kaleidoscopes, four for the eyes, and one for the lips.

Here is an overview of the kaleidoscopes:

Tunisian Trist is the latest kaleidoscope that I purchased and at the time was exclusive to Neiman Marcus online, but now I see Bergdorf's also carries it (online only). It was previously reviewed here.

Smoldering Embarkment was created by Dustin Lujan to commemorate Valentine's Day of 2011. This kaleidoscope can only be purchased at Bergdorf Goodman's in store or by calling up Bergdorf's directly at 212.872.8612. The colors in this particular kaleidoscope include from top to bottom -First Love, Love Struck, In Love, and Lovelorn.

Splendid Frost was LMdB's holiday kaleidoscope for 2010, the colors are from top to bottom - Crystal Ball, Empire, Rockette, and Sugar Plum.

Le Cirque debuted in the Fall of 2010. The colors include, starting from top to bottom - Flamboyantes, Spectacle, Enrichissant, and Dynamique.

Les Artiste lip kaleidoscope complemented Le Cirque and also came out in Fall 2010. From top to bottom the colors are - Illusionists, Acrobates, Magiciens, and Danseurs.

*Look for future reviews on each kaleidoscope and shadow in detail*.


  1. BEAUTIFUL!!! I love this picture!! I just finished doing swatches of my three beauties. I haven't taken any gorgeous pics showing them off like this though. I love it!

  2. @Periously Pale, today I hope to take swatches of the reds for you! You really need the right light to accurately depict these colors or it really is misleading and a waste of time. Thank you for liking my picture and reading my blog - I really appreciate it! Have a great day!

  3. They look quite different in this pic but I definately think there are others I should add before I add Bordeaux to my collection. You do make Tunsian Trist look tempting though ;-) I just saw Chameleon on your wishlist. I'll try to get swatches of my singles done next for you because I have it.

  4. oo they are all so gorgeous! Cant wait to see swatches of all of them.

  5. I'm working on it luv2smilexo. I loved your swatches too by the way!

  6. ooohh, i cannot wait to see Les Artiste swatches. I have about three eye kaleidoscopes but not one lip one.
