Micheal Reinhardt's Le Métier de Beauté limited-edition Cherry Blossom Kaleidoscope Eye Kit ($95) was launched just as the cherry blossoms along the Tidal Basin bloomed. Michael Reinhardt, Le Métier de Beauté manager, artist, and all-around ambassador, works at Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie, and the Cherry Blossom Kaleidoscope was exclusive to his counter. Michael is an industry veteran - one who "knows his stuff" and is an extraordinarily talented makeup artist. He applied my makeup today, using the new Nouvelle Vague Kaleidoscope Eye Kit, and I got compliments everywhere I went in the store.
Michael has a talent for knowing what the "Washington woman" wants to wear. We can't arrive at work looking like a New York fashion model wearing the latest far-out trend or a West Coast hipster. We need sheer, buildable eye colors that work and make us look pretty, while staying within the bounds of office-appropriate. The Cherry Blossom Kaleidoscope Michael designed was perfect for us - and most of you too.
If you want to see my my swatches, hop over to this link. As I review those photos today, I don't think they are the greatest. Trust me; this is a fabulous Kaleidoscope.
Once I publish a "vintage find," the find usually sells out quickly, helped along by our love of Le Métier de Beauté. Michael is at work today. Give him a call at (202) 966-9700, extension 2258 or 2236, to order.
Stay tuned for more on his application of Nouvelle Vague later. I'm feeling quite glam.
