Le Metier de Beaute Golden Gate Girl with swatches and FOTD

Le Metier de Beaute Golden Gate Girl, colors from top to bottom are satin rose petal pink, pale amethyst, warm rhubarb & sunny cinnamon gold

When I called Saks in San Francisco and placed my order, I was greeted by Richard and Kimberly who were both very warm and accommodating. However, I was greeted with surprise when I opened the package with my very own Golden Gate Girl. I took time taking pictures because of my surprise gift and the fact that everything looks perfect, undamaged and undisturbed. I know of people receiving their packages tattered like this lady on tPF…click HERE.

Take a look…

Le Metier de Beaute Golden Gate Girl with GWP

Before I go into my FOTD, I just wanted to say that this k-scope took me by surprise. I bought it because my gut told me to. I’ve never been disappointed with any of the k-scopes that I bought and so I had hopes and after ordering I never thought much about it. I was really pleasantly surprised when I started swatching it because not only were the colors very rich and pigmented alone but when layered it transforms into a pink copper – ish or a coral copper depending on how light or heavy you apply any one of the individual shades. Really the possibilities are endless and this k-scope had me in love at first couches de couleur. Let’s take a look at the swatches…

I love the colors in this k-scope. You can actually use just the top 3 colors for a more nude, day time look and layer the 4th color in if you’re headed out for dinner. Why I love this k-scope – colors can easily be from day to night. Making it the perfect travel palette.

Thanks for dropping by!
