Every time I saw a post or mention of the fall Le Cirque Kaleidoscope, I felt a Pang of jealously. It very rarely happens, but even without seeing this in the flesh I knew this would be perfect for me. My saviour came in the form of Jane from http://www.modestybrown.com/ who kindly offered to pick this kit up for me when she went to Selfridges.
From top to bottom we have Flamboyantes (light stone/beige with a subtle opalescent)
Spectacle (mauve toned taupe)
Enrichissant (reddish bronze)
all these three shades have a subtle luminous glow rather than just shimmer.
The last shade is called Dynamique(smokey slightly blued purple)
Couche de Coleurs is the Le Metier de Beaute layering technique. The idea is to layer the colours in the kit from top to bottom. I couldn't get a good picture of my eye look today but I'll do this for you soon as its an interesting technique and I've never thought to use shades like this before.
The soft texture, ease to blend and long wear of the shadows make them a pleasure to use. Even though the reddish bronze shade is one I would normally run away from these just work perfectly together. The colors are complex and create a subtle glowy polished look whilst still maintaining depth and vibrancy.
This palette cost me £65 and I think its a good way to enter into Le Metier De Beaute.
Le Metier is stocked at Liberty and Selfridges and on their online websites, so expect to see a lot more reviews soon.
