The latest Le Métier de Beauté offering is the Blush Kaleidoscope. It was introduced last year as a counter exclusive, but has recently been inducted into the permanent collection (yay!). The blush kaleidoscope contains four shades of varying textures: a matte apricot orange, a matte coral pink, a shimmering gold, and a light shimmering pink. If the Flawless Face Kit is all you need for a basic face, the Blush Kit is all you need for beautiful cheeks.

It was difficult to photograph the nuances of tone when it's on the cheeks. This post by Cafe Makeup should give a good indication of how layering transforms the colors. I do think that even without layering, the colors in the kit are magnificent on its own and worth the investment.
I found this bit from the press release worth quoting, as it gives us some ideas on how to use differing textures to amp up our cheeks:
“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 bringing vitality to the skin - this is true of color whether it is on the eyes, lips, or cheeks.” – Mikey Castillo
The textures of these powders are finely milled, super soft, easily blendable and (of course) layerable. It is the stuff of a blush fiend's dreams.
Le Métier de Beauté Blush Kaleidoscope retails for $95 and is available at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
