Review: Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope Eye Kit in Cherry Blossom

Le Metier de Beaute has finally released their Cherry Blossom Kaleidoscope, which is exclusive at the Neiman Marcus in Washington, DC. This (and the Northern Lights Kaleidoscope) is my first Kaleidoscope… I always miss the releases.

The packaging is good quality, although not the best for the price, or compared to other high end brands. The configuration is fun, but it would be improved on if you can detach the eye shadow individually.

The formulation is fantastic; very finely milled and easy to blend. I find the matte shades to be smooth, as well. The pigmentation is also fantastic, including the lighter shades. I had reservations about how good the formulation would be, since this is a very expensive item, but it lives up to the hype.

I found the colors in this Kaleidoscope to match Cherry Blossom dead on, with a light beige shimmer shade, a green with golden shimmer shade, a light pink with slight shimmer (almost matte) shade, and a matte dark espresso shade. Individual shades aside, the layered color of all four shades is absolutely breathtaking. It comes out to this light brown with a duo-chrome effect. I used even amounts of each individual shade. You will be able to create many looks with this Kaleidoscope.

Product Info:

$95 @ Mezza Gallerie (202) 966-9700 ext 2265 Sunny Choi Noble (she’s awesome)

Net Wt 0.49 fl oz. (14 gms)

Pro:

  • Great formulation
  • Unique layered colors
  • Size of product (The high price tag comes with good size product. Here are some comparisons: Tom Ford Quad $7.5 per gram, Chanel Quads $8.53 per gram, Le Metier de Beaute $6.79 per gram)

Con:

  • Limited edition (This will go quickly like all their Kaleidoscopes)
  • Expensive for a single item

Bottom line: If you are a lover of high quality cosmetics, I would pick this up ASAP. They are definitely not going to be in stock for long.
