Le Metier de Beaute On the Coast Kaleidoscope, Swatched and Layered

Even with my own eyes, I cannot believe how stunningly beautiful Le Metier de Beaute On the Coast Kaleidoscope is. Created exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue, this palette of three neutrals and one blue is perfection.

As soon as you open the kaleidoscope up, you know that this is a special one. In the pan, the shades are muted yet rich. You can see their promise. In the sun, they come alive. 

Swatched, from top to bottom.

Each shade shimmers in the sunlight, and at an angle you can see the sheen, especially in the second shade. Oh, what a taupe!

In the shade, the shades turn matte but deepen in color.

I also layered all four shades together, starting with the top and ending with the blue. The result is a lovely, multi-dimensional violet.

Once more, with all five swatches.

Le Metier de Beaute On the Coast Kaleidoscope for Saks is a treasure. If you have a chance to acquire this, don't hesitate.

Update: Now you can see it on my eyes!
