Traviata Blush and Bronzer by Le Métier de Beauté

Traviata is the companion piece to Bella from the Summer Kiss set from Le Métier de Beauté.  It's a powder blush and bronzer duo, and the size you see is slightly smaller than the regular Traviata, as this was originally a gift with purchase item.  Le Métier de Beauté recently brought Summer Kiss back to The Beauty Vault, their online site that features limited edition pairing of items, some of which have been discontinued but are brought back for a short time.
Echo is a warm soft coral with gold shimmer, perfect for the summer.  The bronzer is called Sun Kissed, and it's a lighter golden tan.  When swirled together, you get a lovely color that could be used as a blush or bronzer.  The texture is finely milled and applies smoothly.  I did not find this to be highly pigmented, however, as I have to reapply to build up color.  That's not necessarily a problem, as color can be built up, but I've seen other reviews that comment on how pigmented the blush is, and that wasn't my experience.

I find both Echo and Sun Kissed look very natural on, providing a soft flush of color with a subtle shimmer that enhances my warmer skin tone.
Le Métier de Beauté is a luxury brand, which is reflected in the prices.  Traviata retails for $65 for.49 oz (my version is .3 oz).  Traviata also has some interesting ingredients, such as Jojoba seed oil, rosemary, thyme, oregano, cinnamon, lavender, and golden seal extracts.  They are featured high enough on the list that the amounts should be significant enough to benefit skin, although I'm no expert in that area.    
Overall, I really like Traviata and am happy to add it to my collection.  Between Bella, Echo, and Sun Kissed, my summer bronzing needs are well met!
