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.)

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.
