Le Metier de Beaute Penelope Kaleidoscope Eye Kit

First off let me start by saying I love make up. All my make up is MAC and I have a hard time finding new make up that doesn't irritate my skin. Well guess what, I found one :D
 Press Release Info:
"Le Metier de Beaute's new summer Kaleidoscope Eye Kit, Penelope, captures all of the beauty of the Mediterranean panorama. With four opulent shadow shades, Blonde Amber, Pale Satin Amethyst, Bronze Topaz, and Black Emerald, the Gods would be proud.

How to Use:
The Le Métier de Beauté signature eyeshadow application technique is comprised of four hues that are able to give maximum contrast to the wearer's eye color. Known as the "Couches de Couleur" (the layering of color), each hue is selected to evoke one of each element in a sequence of crescendo: 1. Warm 2. Cool 3. Hot 4. Cold. Each layer of application then increases the intensity of contrast, but is always flattering because of the initial blanket of warmth, in this case with Blonde Amber. Worn alone or in combination, “Penelope’s” hues have it all."

And boy, they aren't kidding! This kit is fabulous!
The colors come in a "case" where the shadows swing out and there is a handy nice sized mirror which pops up on top. This is a great kit for traveling with.

Blonde Amber: a sand-hued neutral, perfect as a shadow base.

Pale Satin Amethyst: a light purple, like the Mediterranean sky at dusk

Bronze Topaz: an alluring metallic, mimicking the sunset reflecting on the sand

Black Emerald: a deep ocean green, an irresistible finish

Left side: Pale Satin Amethyst (inner eye), Blonde Amber (middle of lid to outer lid), Bronze Topaz (crease and over the outer part of Blonde Amber. I primed with a MAC paint in a neutral color and used Mascara and a black MAC satin eye shadow to line my lid.
Right side: Black Emerald on outer lid, Blonde Amber on inner lid, same primer/shadow/mascara.
 You can see the satin shimmer from this collection and it's marvelous!
