Such was the stampede when Zuneta.com added Le Metier to their impressive online portfolio, the limited edition Spring items sold out quickly. I was able to buy the Kaleidoscope Eye Kit (£75), next time they have limited editions I'll be a bit quicker.
Whilst I always find the colour
combination's of the Kaleidoscope's interesting, this kit is
definitely the most challenging. It contains Ionic (peach
nude), Sky (baby blue), Magnetic (copper) and
Equinox (intense indigo).
The first three shades are more of a satin finish, with the lighter two having a tiny amount of very fine sparkle, the darkest shade is a semi matte. So you have two warms and two
I've really tried with this but I cannot get a look from it that
I am happy with, but I wanted to show you these so you can see how the colours apply.
I think my problem is with the differing intensities of
the colours, as the peach and pale blue are sheer whereas the copper and
violet are intense, in fact the violet is so pigment heavy that I mainly
use it as a liner as I don't find it blends well. I feel like this kit
is lacking a transitional medium colour intensity shadow and because of
this I feel like the colours just stand apart too much.
Below I have layered the first three shades together,
Apart from the
darkest shade, the shadows have the usual smooth texture and blendable
quality that we get from Le Metier.
So ultimately I am not using the colours together as intended and much prefer using them separately with other shades.
