I was at the Le Metier de Beaute counter again yesterday (the counter girl recognises me now.) They still don't have the Spring Kaleidoscope eye kits in yet, but as I'd had a heck of a week at work I decided to buy the Hypnotique kit I've been eyeing since before Christmas instead.
Pictures of each of the pans, from bottom of kit to top: chocolate taupe, rich gold, plum and copper rose.
Pictures applied. The Couches de Couleurs technique is essentially layering the colours over each other, and the counter assistant explained you can either work from the top to the bottom or bottom to the top of the palette, but that they are really designed to be layered in order to create contrast between the shades. I worked from bottom to top; I used the chocolate taupe shade from lash to just above my crease and under my lower lashes, and then applied the gold over the top of it. I concentrated the plum shade on my upper lashline, then applied the copper rose shade in the centre of my mobile lid. You can't really pick out the individual colours, but it gives a rich smoky eye look that I like very much, and it's easy to do, because it doesn't require skillful blending. I'm definitely going back for the Spring 2010 kit when it arrives in stock.
