To delve a little further into my
|Lightly swatched with my finger|
These swatches were taken in the direct sunlight, working its way from top to bottom. The last shade on the right is all the colors blended together, or what Le Metier calls couches de couleur (the layering of colors).
Here is a little background information on Le Metier De Beaute, translated to mean "the craft of beauty". They are a high end luxury brand found in Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, select Nordstroms and online at bergdorfgoodman.com, neimanmarcus.com, and nordstrom.com.
Here are some close up pictures of the individual colors. The kaleidoscope contains:
- Refresh Eye Brightening & Setting Powder
- Rose Champagne Eye Shadow
- Nutmeg Eye Shadow
- Bordeaux Eye Shadow

At $95.00, I don't take this purchase lightly. I do, however, recognize that one of their shadows sell for $30.00, so if you were to buy each shade individually this kit would normally cost you $120.00. A true savings indeed! That kind of math I can do, no problem.
This kit was designed by genius, Mikey Castillo, Director of makeup for Le Metier and is a limited edition. You know what that means, folks, once it's gone it's...gone!
Bottom line, I love this kit for spring. I like the convenience of having the shades together and the fact that is has a mirror for touchups is a bonus. It's spring and love is in the air!
