New! Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle Vague the Fall 2012 Color Collection

Bold and bodacious is the new  Nouvelle Vague, Le Métier de Beauté’s Fall 2012 Color Collection.  This collection mixes playful and opulent shades to create a modern look that is utterly effortless

“I was tremendously inspired by the visionary spirit of avant-garde European film directors such as, Jean-Luc Godard, Otto Preminger, and Francois Truffaut,” says Mikey Castillo, Director of Color for Le Métier de Beauté. “Their radical style reset the button on social convention (and good taste)!”

Fall 2012 “Nouvelle Vague” Kaleidoscope Eye Kit

The films of Nouvelle Vague are often called the ‘French New Wave’ and each hue in Le Métier de Beauté’s Nouvelle Vague Kaleidoscope Eye Kit reflects the spark present throughout the French cinema New Wave. When the colors in the kaleidoscope are combined, the look provokes an elegance for a jaw-dropping eye. I’m really, really interested to see the black shade. I love all the others and can envision a gorgeous cat eye or vampy look with this kaleidoscope.
Shades from top to bottom include:
Nouvelle – a sheer mink negative
Gamine – a satin pink celluloid
Icon – a silky matte Parisian mauve
Fin – a smoldering black carbon
I’m really excited about this one, beauties. I wish, I wish I had a LMdB counter near me so I could see in person. You lucky ladies that have access to this Kaleidoscope let me live vicariously through you pleeeeeese?
The Kaleidoscope will retail for $95USD
Also this Fall for 2012, Le Metier de Beaute introduces their “Breathless” Kaleidoscope Lip Kit.  This kit is a beautifully crafted fusion of Fall’s on trend crimson and red tones for lips.  The Breathless Kaleidoscope Lip Kit might literally take your breath away with it’s iconic and ravishing reds.  The Breathless” Kaleidoscope Lip Kit blends your classic Hollywood glam and spellbinding 1960’s edge to leave you seeing red and craving more!
The shades from top to bottom:
Cinema – a velvety, ultra-rich true red
Existential – sparkling mauve with rose effervescence
Beau – deep berry crimson with matte finish
Celluloid – a glimmering, creamy flushed red

I love the looks of this, but I cannot do lip palettes–I need something to carry around in my bag. That said, this looks like a stunning palette for red lip lovers!!!
