Le Métier de Beauté Aurora Kaleidoscope Lip Kit from the Northern Lights Spring 2012 Collection

I am a loyal fan of Le Métier de Beauté and have been dazzled by their finely-milled eyeshadows and eye kits. But I had never tried their lip kits. After seeing Georgina Chapman at the Oscars rocking the Le Métier de Beauté Spring Collection, I knew it was my time to get my paws on their new Aurora Kaleidoscope Lip Kit.

First, I am hooked on the delicious vanilla scent. It is sophisticated but still pronounced. Confession: I am currently sniffing the back of my hand where my swatches are. Yum. Second, the colors are subtle but still evoke the Spring trends. They range from soft floral to pronounced fuchsia. I have been wearing these colors individually, but the proper application is “Couches de Colour”. Le Metier artists would encourage layering the colors from top to bottom. Both the layered and single application results in an unusually beautiful pout.

From top to bottom:

  • Illuminate, shimmery, sheer pink (pretty, classic Spring pout)
  • Voltaic, a satiny mauve (I can’t stop wearing this solo – beautiful)
  • Dynamos, an shimmery nude (for a perfect nude glisten)
  • Eos, an opaque, bright fuchsia (perfect for the Spring neon trend)
