Le Métier de Beauté Splendid Frost

I learned this past weekend that the tiring bit about moving lies more in unpacking than the actual shifting of things. I'm beginning to realize that I have way too much stuff but they're good stuff so I'm reluctant to throw them out, and the result is a sort of despair at all these nice but useless things I have piled up around me. 

But I know if I don't start getting rid of things my apartment would be just one step away from an episode of Hoarders, so I'm in the midst of taking photos for a blog sale. I have plenty of very gently used makeup waiting for new homes.

In the meantime, here's a quick peek at my all time favorite Le Métier de Beauté eye kaleidoscope. I talk about Splendid Frost very often but I've never featured it here. I'm quite aware that a lot of you might hate me after this, because this is absolutely sold out everywhere. But pretty makeup is pretty makeup, and though it's from a couple of years ago, it still deserves to be seen.


The colors from top to bottom are a taupe, a matte gray, a light pink, and a shimmering midnight blue. When combined, it's a soft smokey eye that works for any occasion imaginable. I've worn it to work, school, photo shoots, dates, interviews, and most recently, my graduation. (Also, it is a testament to the stellar pigmentation of Le Métier de Beauté eye shadows that my most-used eye kit still looks barely touched.)




Lips: Guerlain Porto Ercole

I've been asked if I could recommend dupes from the permanent line to recreate the kit, but sadly I couldn't think of anything similar. I also forgot what I wore on my cheeks, which is unfortunate because I'm kind of obsessed with it.

  4. Looking forward to getting my paws on your blogsale!

    Splendid Frost is really beauitiful on you. It's very sophisticated and love the bright blue along the lashes. I got the Saks On the Coast when it came out and the blue and the taupey khaki kind of looks similar (I hope?). Maybe I can scrounge up a grey and pink from another line and try to duplicate a look. That kaleidoscope is a beauty and you look gorgeous!

  6. Ha, I had pretty much the same reaction browsing today's major fashion sales: my closet is full, ack! I even tweeted the idea of doing a blog sale before I read your post. Great minds think alike?

    Splendid Frost is lovely on you. I'm still grateful to you for yelling at me to get it while it was available. You never lead me astray!

  7. I would like to inform you that I am using my new monitor to fully appreciate your lovely pictures and cheekbones (see? justified!)
    I am also kind of obsessed with whatever is on your cheeks, please find out what it is *___*
    Le Metier de Beaute is very much out of my price point but it is a gorgeous palette, especially that blue/indigo!

  8. I hear you on de-hoarding!!
    You look stunning in splendid frost. I love the subtle and complex smokey eye...
    BTW, do you consider selling the Penelope kaleidoscope kit? I'd buy it on the spot!

  9. I like the look, very sophicated. I really can't wait to see what you will have up for grabs in the blog sale. Do you know when you will post the information?

    Over the past few months I've tried to only purchase things that are more "unique" and different from what I already have. My problem is that I seem to be able to justify everything as being "unique". What a problem to have;)

  10. Hi! Do u think you would put violaceous splendor on you blog sale? I've tried for years to find that one but it seems impossible.

  11. Though I to do not need any makeup, I am looking forward to your goods. :) Rainy days like today have me organizing my makeup. I may have a blog sale myself!

  12. Thanks for all the enthusiasm over the sale, everyone! Definitely makes the prospect of taking a million pictures more stomach able ;D

    Unfortunately, it is unlikely that I will put any of my lmdb kaleidoscopes for sale. I collect them so they're kind of like my babies >< so far I see lots of Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Shu Uemura, Guerlain... I'm going to try to photograph all of them this weekend and hopefully post it up by next week!

  15. GORGEOUS CHEEKZ! I have this one!!! I need to pull it out-for some reason I tend to forget about it. I think I should depot it or something so I can use them more often!

  16. I'm so glad I took your advice and bought Splendid frost and Penelope when you discovered extras. I fell in love with them and then ended up buying the single shadow in corinthian. I do have to say the quality of the eye shadows is excellent. I love how you did your eye makeup using the blue as a liner. The whole look is gorgeous! Thanks for showing Le Metier De Beaute on your blog, without it I would still be lemming Penelope.
