FOTD featuring Le Metier de Beaute’s Shades of Short Hills

Le Metier de Beaute Shades of Short Hills (exclusive at Saks Short Hills, NJ)

I was really attracted to this palette initially out of all the three kaleidoscopes that was released to Saks. This k-scope is exclusive to the Saks in Short Hills, NJ. Such beautiful colors…just my kind. I’ve been calling this the neked palette on steroids. For swatches, click HERE.

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.

quick post on Le Metier de Beaute’s Shades of Short Hills

My package came in today right before leaving for Universal Studios. I couldn’t help myself so I swatched. I just used my iphone’s camera for this so bear with me. I will update this post with pics from my camera.

The picture below I took with iPhone camera indoors. Swatches are according to order on the kaleidoscope with the last one being the layered effect from top to bottom.

I have to say this kaleidoscope is truly more beautiful in person. The shades are velvety, highly pigmented & easy to blend. I could see myself using the first 3 shades for a luxe version of a warm nude eye and all shades layered for a smoky look. It’s the neked palette on steroids 🙂 LMdB never ceases to wow me on the products they put out. I can’t wait to play with this one. In the words of Giuliana Rancic, “amazeballs”.

Thanks for dropping by!
