Le Métier de Beauté Bauhaus Lip Kaleidoscope- Review & Swatches

Purchased by me.
Le Métier de Beauté Kaleidoscope Lip Kit in Bauhaus is a gorgeous lip palette consisting of beautifully compatible sheer shades that are nothing short of stunning- whether used individually or layered. While this was a Holiday 2012 palette, they are still available online at Neiman Marcus-- and I believe that it is well worth having.
A deviously divine mix of function, flame and form, Le Metier de Beauté introduces the newest Holiday Kaleidoscope Lip Kit "Bauhaus," exclusively for Neiman Marcus online. Each distinctive hue blends together effortlessly for a dimensional pout, mirroring the bold Bauhaus notion of combining unique parts for a collective whole. Lips will be left with a total package, mixing statement and sophistication. 

Shades include (from top to bottom):
Linaire— a lustrous gold-infused rose petal
Criterion— a gilded amber-peach
Esthetique— a shimmering vintage rose
Shilhouette— a Cimmerian cloak of sheer amethyst
Linaire— a lustrous gold-infused rose petal. While the base is itself a cool-leaning rose, it is warmed up by gold pearl.
Criterion— a gilded amber-peach. It is a gorgeous peachy nude.
Esthetique— a shimmering vintage rose. It is a stunning pink that will make you swoon.
Shilhouette— a Cimmerian cloak of sheer amethyst. This is purple perfection- it is a pinky lavender that  is infinitely wearable, and breathtakingly gorgeous.
 Left to Right: Linaire, Criterion, Esthetique, and Cimmerian.

All four shades, whether or not mixed, are incredibly comfortable on the lips. The formula has the perfect amount of cushion, is moisturizing, and is long-wearing when compared to most lip glosses. I get upwards of 4 hours of wear-time, but your mileage may vary. My lips remain soft, supple, and beautifully shiny when I wear this stellar combination of lip glosses. This really is a gorgeous lip kit!

Overall assessment: True love! The price is tag is exorbitant, no doubt. That said, I would recommend checking the Neiman Marcus website frequently because I picked this up for $45.00 during one of their Midday Dash sales (and that is not the first time that I have purchased LMdB from them at a fraction of the regular price).

    1. Hi Niki!! I agree- it just makes me swoon every time I open it up!! :D

  2. They have cosmetics during Midday Dash?????????? I just deleted those emails. I'm in shock and I'm in big trouble now since I'll be stalking them. Bad girl Ms Lola!! Smile Ms Marcia :).

    1. I have had TWO major LMdB scores this way (both times they were more than 50% off!!). I actually think that they just discreetly place it in the sale section at the same time that they offer their Midday Dash. Some things appear there because they seem to be trying to get rid of it, but others-- like the Bauhaus Lip Kaleidoscope was $45.00 for a couple of days, and after I placed my order it went right back to $95.00-- so I wonder if the distinction might be clearance vs. very special limited time sale. I stalk NM ALL the time!

      Just click on their "Sale" tab on the far right and then just click on Beauty. Sometimes some pretty amazing things land there for a while. Right now they are selling a Perricone MD "The Essentials (retail $236.00) for $150.00 (and that's not even one of the best reductions that I have seen on there). My poor wallet-- I will go broke saving money!

      Set contains:
      Nutritive Cleanser, 6.0 fl. oz./177mL.
      Firming Facial Toner, 6.0 fl. oz./177mL.
      Face Finishing Moisturizer, 2.0 fl. oz./59mL
