Le Metier Blush Palette Kaleidoscope Blush Kit


What makes you blush?

For years, scientists have been perplexed by why our body responds by blushing when we have a crush, are the center of attention, etc., and why the hues of blushing can be so varied. Even Charles Darwin struggled to explain blushing, describing it as “the most peculiar and the most human of expressions.”

It’s clear blushing is personal. Every woman’s flush is a unique shade all her own. With that in mind, Le Métier de Beauté introduces the Kaleidoscope Blush Kit. We’ve heard of a “lipstick wardrobe,” think of this as one for the cheeks.

A Blush of Color Theory

“When we blush it’s not one shade; it’s a prismatic multitude of color. To express how you feel or the feeling you want to evoke, you need to layer color for that perfect flush,” says Le Métier de Beauté’s Director of Color Mikey Castillo. “In order to create dimension, there must be at least two pigments that are contrasting in tone or texture. For instance, matte with sheen, satin with matte, pink with coral, or mauve with bronze. Layering multiple shades eliminates flatness while bring vitality to the skin- this is true of colorwhether it is on the eyes, lips, or cheeks.”

The Blush Kaleidoscope contains a selection of these contrasting shades and textures, giving the wearer infinite possibilities. If you missed out on the  Blush Kaleidoscope ($95) last year, (I did) you will be excited to learn that the kit has been released as a permanent item in the Le Métier de Beauté line!

The Shades

“The whole delight of a blush collection is to enable a woman to create a multitude of looks by blending two or more of the multiple hues in the Blush Kaleidoscope,” says Mr. Castillo.

The beautiful and balanced combination of the shades creates an effortless, feminine glow. Blend the matte shades for day, and transition to evening with a sensuous, shimmery layer. The four-in-one stacked kitincludes a satin peach, a matte rose pink, a shimmery highlighter and a cool pink. Each shade is finely-milled for adjustable coverage, transparency andintensity. The shine-absorbing, oil-free formula is safe for all skin types including sensitive skin. Marcia from Beauty Info Zone reviewed this when it first debuted.

Suggested Retail Price: $95

Available now at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and select boutiques. I adore my Echo blush from Le Métier de Beauté  and I actually think four blushes for $95 isn’t too ridiculous–it’s only $23.75 per shade!  I WANT!!!
