Le Métier de Beauté Penelope Applied

Here are the pictures of the Le Métier de Beauté Penelope Kaleidoscope applied as promised. I've included a few different combination of the colours layered. In this first look I have applied all of the colours. I am wearing Pale Satin Amethyst all over the lid, Bronze Topaz on the outer 2/3 of the mobile lid and Black Emerald on the very outer corner and into the crease. I applied Blonde Amber to blend out just above the crease (please forgive me for the messy hair in the full face picture!).

Here I used just two of the colours. I applied Black Emerald along the lashline in a thick line and Bronze Topaz above Black Emerald, up to the crease.

In the pictures below, I applied the top three colours in the Kalidoscope and lined with YSL Waterproof liner in Shimmering Burgundy. I applied a light wash of Blonde Amber all over the mobile lid then layered Pale Satin Amethyst over the Blonde Amber. I applied Bronze Topaz to the crease and outer corner of the eye using a MAC 217 brush. This is a very soft eye look and I really like how it turned out.

I have been enjoying playing with this palette quite a bit. I don't find I intuitively know where best to place each colour but it has forced me to try out different placement and combination and it's interesting to see how it turns out each time. I think the layering creates such an interesting effect. Overall I find the colours are very brightening and I think they're perfect for the Summer.

How would you apply the colours in this Kaleidoscope?

  1. So pretty! I love all of the combos; so neutral but shimmery.

  3. I am really looking forward to getting mine. I particularly like it on you with the bolder line of the dark green.

  4. @Tenderheart: Thanks, you almost wouldn't expect neutral when looking at the palette but with the layering you can achieve quite a few neutral looks.

    @PerilouslyPale: It is a lot of fun. I keep challenging myself as I'm not normally creative with colour combinations!

    @Grace: I really look forward to seeing what eye looks you do with Penelope. The green is one of my favourite colours, it's very 'rich' looking.

    @HDTM: Thank you! I wearing it with Echo in the final picture. Love it! :D

  5. Gah, you have made me want it even more now! So beautiful on you, I love how you have used the colours. They really need to come back to the UK now..stamps foot....

    In other news I picked up one of those Dior lift palettes today, not tried it yet but I wanted to dazzle you with how long I managed to hold off buying one ;)

  7. @Replica: Thank you. I think we need to see about sorting out a CP for you with one of the US ladies. I could ask on Twitter if you like? I laughed out loud at your Dior purchase! Some amazing restraint there ;). I can't wait to see what you think of it. I suspect these are going to natter at me!

    @Sabrina: Thank you so much! I'm really enjoying playing with this one.

  13. You look gorgeous! This palette looks so nice on so many people, and I am really encouraged to see the cool-toned women wearing it. I really love the 3 combo on you and would probably use that look most. Beautiful!

  16. I'm really trying to resist this palette but its growing on me. My LMdB counter MA applied this to me on saturday and my eyes looked huge!

  17. How beautiful. I am (black emerald) green with envy! Did you get a PR sample? Can't believe LMDB is still not available in the UK. I'm competely out of my favourite blushes Echo and Poppy Creme. I went to visit their counter in Paris but they hardly have anything stock. I looked into ordering from Nordstrom but it's far too expensive.

  18. Hi Jane,
    Sorry for late responce my computer seems to be having issues with your blog of late, I either can't get it to fully load, or the pages go whizzing up and down. I clearly lack any technical skills to know what the issue is ;)
    Jeanie has very kindly come to my penelope rescue, I'm very exicited! x

  21. Thank you all for you lovely comments!

    @French_Kitty: Yes, this was a PR sample. I added the disclosure in the initial post but forgot to add it here too. I got Echo through an International exchange and I love it. LMdB are working on coming back. Fingers crossed you’re not without your favourites for too long!

    @Replica: Hurray for Jeanie!

    @Meeta: The bright lippie is the darker of the two Essence lipsticks that I reviewed recently.
