Fujimoto:: Le Métier de Beauté August Exclusive Eye Kaleidoscope

Another gorgeous eye kaleidoscope has joined my growing collection, this time courtesy of Le Métier de Beauté's summer kaleidoscope 3 month subscription program.  Inspired by the themes of famed Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, the four shades are:
  • Top pan - burnished fawn
  • 2nd pan - opalescent violet
  • 3rd pan - deep chromatic brown
  • 4th pan - bronzen aubergine
The formula on all four of these is spot on!  They are smooth with great pigmentation and blend together seamlessly.  Truly spectacular.
While each Le Métier de Beauté shadow can be used on it's own, they really shine when layered over each other.  This 'couches de couleur' technique allows for greater color complexity without any resulting muddiness.  If you having doubts, just click on the below picture:

It also means that one kaleidoscope can result in a greater variety of color combinations than you would first assume, making their $95 price tag a bit easier to digest.
I've got to say, Fujimoto is my favorite eye kaleidoscope to date.  I would not have intuitively put together the fawn and violet colors, but somehow it works. 

For this look, I focused more on the brown shades and also incorporated the LMdB shadow Goldstone, which I received in May's LMdB VIP box.
Sadly, since this was exclusive to the summer kaleidoscope program, it's not available for general purchase.  It may show up on ebay at some point if someone decides they don't want theirs, but I'm not seeing it online as of yet.
