I bought this kaleidoscope from my Le Metier counter when most of the others were sold out. I was coerced by some lovely enablers into this purchase, and I'm pretty happy I was. Le Metier kaleidoscopes are basically their palettes. The colors are meant to be layered in a technique called couches de couleur. This means layering of the colors and usually means you work from the top down, layering the colors right over each other.
Splendid frost came in 2 packaging colors, black and white (seen here). All 4 shadows can slide out independently and it contains a large mirror at the top. Here's what the palette looks like all closed up.
The pans are all quite large, about the size of Makeup Forever or Chantecaille shadows. I can't really imagine using them up (which is why I'm ok with this being limited edition).
The 4 shadows in this palette are a taupey brown:
And of course, they are even more beautiful when swatched.
old kaleidoscopes. If you can still get your hands on this lovely, definitely don't hesitate.

What is your favorite way to cool down during summer?
