We heard the excellent news earlier in the year that cult makeup brand, Le Metier de Beaute is returning to the UK and I have one of the gorgeous products they are launching with. It is pretty special! Here’s a look at Le Metier de Beaute Exquisite Kaleidoscope.

UPDATE! JUST LAUNCHED HERE.

I told you it was special. This little tiered compact contains four separate shades that can be used on face and eyes to highlight and sculpt.

The textures are so beautiful. They are milled so finely that it feels as light as silk, but the pigmentation is dense and the colour payoff is brilliant. It is the kind of texture that makes you whisper ‘oh my god’ under your breath as you swatch it, and then try to tell the people around you about it, even though they don’t care about makeup!

As I love something a bit different, I’m obsessed with the tiers that slide in and out. It reminds me of something from my childhood but I can’t think what! Any ideas?

The arrangement means you pretty much have your face sorted as the shades work beautifully on the eyes too. What a small space that takes up in your makeup bag.

Le Metier de Beaute Exquisite Kaleidoscope is pricey – it is £81! However, the quality is amazing and you get two highlighters, a bronzer, a blush and you can use them all on your eyes too. We have to justify these things somehow! It launches exclusively HERE on 6th September 2016. I think the re-introduction of this brand is going to cause a lot of excitement.
