Last October, I reviewed Le Metier de Beaute’s Le Cirque Kaleidoscope Palette ($95), which is a gorgeous fall palette released for the Fall season. Since then, I’ve discovered that The NonBlonde has uncovered names for the eyeshadows in the palette. Further, I wanted to respond to some of the comments that asked me to post a few pictures that show the palette using Le Metier’s layering effect (called “Couches de Coleur”), which can add incredible depth and beauty to an already amazing palette.
I’ve added Le Metier’s names to the pictures this time through–here are the swatches with no layering:
Here are three of the colors, layered with the beautiful light shimmery Flamboyantes on top:
Here is the golden taupe Spectacle over Dynamique, alone and then over Enrichssant:
Just for fun, I decided to swatch all colors (the darkest Dynamique on the bottom, up to the lightest Flamboyantes on top) on the left; and the copper red Enrichissant over the deep blue-violet Dynamique on the bottom on the right:
Once again, I’m struck by how beautiful and versatile Le Cirque is. I love something this innovative and fun. The colors coordinate together, can be worn separately (each is marvelously complex), plus the formula is amazing enough to apply as layers. In the end, these colors are as rich as a silk Baroque tapestry. I am not aware of anyone else who is working with eyeshadow formulation this way, and I applaud Le Metier for doing such a gorgeous palette.
