I have the full list of the entire upcoming Le Métier de Beauté Fall 2012 Nouvelle Vague collection, but for now, a sneak peek at the eye kaleidoscope.
- Nouvelle - a sheer shimmering mink
- Gamine - a cool satin pink
- Icon - a matte mauve
- Fin - a smoldering black carbon
Clockwise: Nouvelle, Gamine, Icon, Fin
L-R: Fin, Icon, Gamine, Nouvelle
All colors, lightly layered
On first glance, I was a little crestfallen to see the first three shades so similar to each other. However, I'll reserve my doubts until after I've had time to play with it.
That said, the black shade (Fin) in the eye kit did jump out at me. I have never seen such a pigmented black eyeshadow before. My fingers barely brushed the surface of the shadow and came up sooty. It was like touching charcoal, but in the best possible way. Below, I compared Fin with the blackest shadow I own, Giorgio Armani ETK Intense #13. As you can see, the ETK looks grey in comparison.
L-R: Giorgio Armani ETK Intense #13, Fin
Le Métier de Beauté Nouvelle Vague Kaleidoscope Eye Kit will retail for the usual $95 and will be available to all existing counters. The full collection will hit stores this October.
