I adore the concept of the Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope (previously reviewed HERE and HERE). Impressively compact yet brimming with color options, this genius gadget houses four layers of rich pigments that can be worn alone or blended together or endless options. Allow me to introduce the lastest LE LMdB Kaleidscope...Obsidian Odyssey.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of Obsidian Odyssey in action...
|Above: A look that I created with Obsidian Odyssey.|
The Obsidian Odyssey Eye Shadow Kaleidoscope has three shadows and a split pan cake liner. The shadows are silky smooth, with excellent color payoff and a luminescent satin finish that lasts all day without the slightest sign of creasing. I am completely smitten by the overall effect of these gems!
There is a:
- Bronzy camel-meets-dijon mustard shade...my absolute favorite of the three
- Peach-meets-papaya shade with golden undertones
- Pale opal pink shade with nearly lilac undertones
- Split pan cake liner in both an onyx black and soft, slightly pearlized navy
Although I wouldn't normally gravitate towards these seemingly bold shades, once applied, they have a synergistic effect that is utterly alluring. I start by blending a layer of the bronze shade over my upper lid. I follow with a bit of the peach tone, blending within the crease, towards the brow line. I add a bit of the bronze and peach to my brush yet again and sweep it across my lower lash line for a touch of depth. I then sweep some of the opal pink at the base of my brow (for a highlight), making sure that all three shades are seamlessly blended. The effect is bold yet earthy and entirely wearable!
