Le Métier de Beauté has released a Saks-Exclusive Kaleidoscope called Saint-Domingue ($95, limited). I spotted it in their fall fantasy catalog and ordered it immediately from Saks Houston for a gift card event. It’s breathtaking. Each shade is unique compared to the past releases from Le Métier de Beauté. It’s a stunning combination of colors that is perfect for fall.
The top shade is a satiny nude pink. There is a slight hint of shimmer but it applies more like a matte.
The second shade is a matte grey base with very subtle flecks of sparkle. Note this one pulls more blue on my arm but in real life applies more neutral on the eyes. It’s not as pale or as cool as the grey from Splendid Frost.
The third shade is a shimmering plum gold. It looks almost identical to Silk Road’s plums but it applies with much more pigment and sparkle. It’s also not quite as purply as Silk Road.
The last shade is a stunning soft steel dove grey shimmer. I couldn’t find another shade like it. It applies like a dream.
Most kits are designed to layer each color. This one I prefer to apply more like a traditional quad (lightest all over, then each darker shade worn progressively closer to the lashline).
Swatched individually then blended together:
I think it’s a must-have. It has the perfect blend of matte and shimmer. The pigment and blendability is phenomenal. I can’t rave enough about this one. You can find it at select Saks Stores or at Saks.com.
