Wishlist #233472843

I can't help it.
I come across certain things and then spend days lusting for them...
Most of the time it goes away, but, in the case of a few, they persist.

Here's what has currently grabbed my attention:

- Le Metier De Beaute Kaleidoscope in "Penelope"

Actually, all their Kaleidoscopes are to die for - I think they come out with one every season, featuring limited edition shades.

I've said it once and I'll say it again - Le Metier De Beaute Eyeshadows will make you stop impulsively buying random MAC/NARS shades from all the collections they come out with and just make you want to invest in the good stuff instead.

I only own one, Corinthian, which is firmly planted in my "Top 5 Eyeshadows EVER" category but I need more, and I need them soon.
Unfortunately I've put all unnecessary makeup buying on hold since I need to save up for my vacation, but if I make an exception, it would probably be for this Kaleidoscope in "Penelope":

I actually don't own any colours like the ones featured (except for maybe the taupe-ish shade that looks similar to MAC Style Snob, which I LOVE, so it wouldn't really be a bad thing).
At $95 a pop, these are a luxury item, but you do end up saving a bit since separately these eyeshadows cost $30 each.

Do you own a Kaleidoscope? Would you ever want to?

I've seen them in person and they're just so lovely. Packaging is sturdy and sleek, would be quite perfect for traveling.


  1. I've actually never heard of Le Metier De Beaute... but you have most definitely sparked my curiosity... do they have a line at Holt Renfrew?

  2. I have Le Cirque from Fall 2010 and Embarkment that was a Bergdorf's exclusive and I LOVE them! Yes, they are pricey, but so worth it.

  3. @ Alma sadly no they're not at holt renfrew yet.. just online and in store at saks fifth avenue, neiman marcus and some nordstrom stores in the states
