This alluring eye kit mixes four inviting hues from opaque and subdued to lit-from-within sheen. Layered, these shades will leave your eyes are looking lush and dreamy. “As a wardrobe for the eyes, the look is eternally classic, whether worn smoky for night, or simply muted for day.” Now that I have it in front of me, courtesy of Le Métier de Beauté, I can add a ditto to that description.
- Midsummer - silk ivory with opaque pink finish
- Fairyland - chrome metal and silver flecked
- Athenians - red-bronzed copper
- Love-in-Idleness - dark, stormy blue
Fairyland is a pewter shade - the kind of color that pewter reflects in candlelight. Like Midsummer, it offers a gleaming finish - not too shimmery and just right for daytime wear.
Think I dove off the deep end with the dinner table vision? Mikey collects Fiestaware, and I know he appreciates a beautiful room. He enjoys decorating so much, he frequently updates the rooms in his own home.
Summer Night's Dream is a model Kaleidoscope for using Le Métier de Beauté's signature eye shadow application technique called Couches de Couleur, a layering application that creates a unique prismatic effect. The first shade used is intended to brighten the lid. The second shade should add warmth. The third shade is the color focus for the lid - it should show. The fourth shade adds depth.
I swatched all of these shades heavily. I'm sure you can imagine how they will look when applied with a brush or layered. You can use Summer Night's Dream for your daytime look, adding a veil of relatively neutral colors, or at night for beautiful smoky look.
Summer Night's Eye will be available only at Bergdorf Goodman, starting this month. To reserve or purchase yours, call (212) 872-8612. Quantities will be limited, so if you want one of the new Kaleidoscopes, make sure to call soon. My recommendation? It's a buy!
If you have read this feature to the end, you are about to read news even more exciting (to me) than the introduction of Summer Night's Dream - itself an event. Le Métier de Beauté has donated one Summer Night's Dream Kaleidoscope Eye Kit for a Best Things in Beauty giveaway contest. Come back tonight. The contest will begin, giving you the opportunity to win this treasure.
