Le Metier De Beaute and I used to be in a hot and heavy romance with all it's limited edition counter releases (which I found annoying and stressful being that I live overseas, and I had to stay up and make sure I had enough money on Skype for my beauty drunk dialing), and then one day the phone just stop ringing.

I still love the brand, and continue to purchase whatever new releases trickle down onto the web or LMDB counters.

Anyway, I've been meaning to start cataloging all my Kaleidoscopes, and since my recent posts have been heavy on the Sakura theme, what better Kaleidoscope to start with then, Cherry Blossom.

Cherry Blossom was one of those Kaleidoscopes I almost passed up, thinking the color combinations were a little meh. But, I said "what the hey", and got it anyway. I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong, and my judgement of Cherry Blossom was so wrong, because theses shades pairing beautiful with one another.

Color description from left to right:

A shimmery, champagne-peach.

A shimmery, golden, spring green.

A matte, cool-toned, mauvish-pink.

A matte, yellow-based brown.

I wore the look below a several times this and last month, as well as to the Hanami party.

I had a lot of fun writing this first installment on my Le Metier De Beaute Kaleidoscopes. I hope you enjoyed reading it.


  1. LOVE the eye makeup close up!

    1. Wow, can't believe its taken me this long to reply. I really love this kaleidoscope from LMdB <3

  2. That kaleidoscope is awesome! I subscribed to their VIP box last summer and have been hoping for a kaleidoscope to make an appearance, but so far, :(

    1. Sorry it's taken me this long to reply. I want to subscribe to their VIB program, but I'm afraid all I'll get is their skin care; which I'm not s fan of. What items dos you receive?

    2. No worries, life gets busy sometimes!

      The 2015/16 program was sort of a dud. There were lots of lipsticks; and most of them weren't good quality. My favorites were October, March and May. They've been teasing the 2016/17 boxes to subscribers for the past few months and it looks like next year (from what they've shown) is an equal mix of skincare and makeup.

      August - Safari palette with eyeshadows, blush, bronzer
      September - 1 marbled eyeshadow compact and brush
      October - lipstick with matching gloss
      November - gold luminizer and brush
      December - 2 lipsticks
      January - 2 lipsticks
      February - peau vierge primer and brush
      March - highlighter
      April - brow powder
      May - kaleidoscope
      June - body firming cream
      July - 2 sheet masks

    3. See, I own all of their lipsticks, and most of the glosses. The only thing I'd want are kaleidoscopes. I wish they offered some sort of check off list of what items you'd prefer (i.e. eyeshadows, blush, lipstick, etc), you know what I mean?!

    4. Definitely!

      Against my better judgment I signed up for another year, so I'm hoping there's more customization this time 😊

    5. I hope you get items you love. Please keep me updated on your monthly parcels. I'm still debating on signing up one of these days, and you're my insider ;)

  3. LMdB does such a great job of combining colors that make you scratch your head at first - but somehow they always look beautiful.

    1. Agreed! The brand always comes up with lovely combinations. Btw, one t of curiosity, how many kaleidoscopes are in your collection?

  4. Will do! The first month of the renewed subscription should be coming soon, so I'll let you know when I get it 😉

    1. Great! Looking forward to your updates :) I'm not sure if I've asked this before, but do you have a blog?

  5. I don't blog, but I do follow you on IG under the name 'tremblelikeaflower'

    I'm still waiting to receive the August shipment - seems like they were a little behind for the first month ��

    1. That's you! Now I have a pretty face to go with the name :) I heart your IG dear :)

    2. Thank you my dear, you are too sweet ;) I love your blog!!

  6. After a long wait I finally received my LMDB sub box today. I had enquired with them regarding the delay and was advised that to save $ they are only shipping the international subs every 2 months. I don't mind, but I wish they would've told me that up front.

    Anyway, August's box is a Hydra Plump Lip Serum and a 4 color eye quad (not kaleidoscope) in greens and browns. It's very pretty and I'm sure I'll get some use of it.

    September's box is a full size tube of their replenishing oil cleanser.

    Not bad, not bad :)

    1. What's up with not disclosing the every 2 months shipping crap! I wonder if they ship to Japan?

      I'd love to see a photo of that palette; I love greens <3
