Le Metier de Beaute Mount Diablo Kaleidoscope

I came to know about this limited edition, counter exclusive kaleidoscope because somebody mentioned it on Le Metier de Beaute’s Facebook Page. I was intrigued so I googled to see if I could see images of it. I found very little info but I saw the shades and I knew I had to buy it. I contacted Neiman Marcus Walnut Creek in California and the wonderful Dita told me that they sold their last one two days before.

I was disappointed but I let it go thinking it wasn’t meant to be. My daughter was in the hospital at that time and she told me that same thing. A few minutes later, Dita called me back to let me know that they found one Mount Diablo that was already opened but was only used as a display in an enclosed case. I couldn’t believe my ears, of course I want it!

What it is about (according to paperwork I found online but not in the package that I received)…

The Mount Diablo Kaleidoscope Eye Shadow Collection captures the spirit of Walnut Creek in rich, captivating color. This exclusive, limited-edition collection contains a beautiful palette celebrating the rich history and geographical significance of the area, including (top-to-bottom) Castle Rock, a satin pink with subtle shimmer, East Bay, a shimmering, steely blue/gray, Mount Diablo, a rich, matte mauve-tan, and Walnut Creek, a deep, rich matte chocolate.

And for the individual shades… I love how they named each shade with names significant to the area.
