Le Metier de Beaute Summer 2011

Le Metier’s Mediterranean-inspired summer collection is now on counters!: a new limited edition Kaleidoscope palette and four nail polishes.
Le Metier de Beaute, LMdB, Summer, 2011, swatches, Penelope, Kaleidoscope, Dionysus, Athena, Hera, Eris, KarlaSugar, Karla Sugar
Penelope’s shades are a shimmery, muted-but-very-yellow (almost brown) sheer antique gold; a satin lavender; a shimmery bronze; and a very blackened green shimmer. I lightly layered the first three shades to simulate Le Metier’s couches de couleur application technique. The blended color was a warm brown, maybe even a soft rose-bronze.

Your eye color, lid color, eyeshadow base, and eyeliner will also affect the way you perceive Penelope, layered, on your eyes. With LMdB’s Champagne pencil as a base and that fourth, green shade as a liner, Penelope looked cooler on my face than it does here on my arm. Like all Kaleidoscopes, Penelope is $95.

The nail polish bottles are quite small (.14 oz, or 4 ml), and they’re $10 each. Dionysus is a mermaidy blue-green shimmer. Athena is a blued green-grey shimmer. Hera is a pale gold shimmer. Eris is an orange “tobacco” leather shimmer.

  • Isn’t Penelope lovely! I’ve been playing with her a lot since getting her a few weeks ago. It’s a pity the green doesn’t show up in swatches as vibrant as it is in use. When I first did swatch pics I thought I was going to be disappointed with it and then when I applied it to my eyes with my MAC 239 it was so pigmented and vibrant. Totally not like the swatches. Odd but who cares…. I love her!

    I think I might need athena. Do you think its frosty at all?

    This palette is so amazing, every color (together and separately) just makes my rather olive brown eyes stand out. The green really needs to be seen in person. I’m not a green shadow person but it is so intense and gorgeous!

    Dionysus needs to be mine!! If only I was able to pick it up in person!

    How do you think these colors would look on a cool skinned brunette with dark brown eyes? I’m afraid the colors of the pallet would blend with my coloring too much. Thanks-
