I guess it’s safe to say that I broke my ban a few weeks. In the worst way. I’m paying for it—figuratively and literally—but for now, I shall enjoy my third eye kaleidoscope to date. I think that’s a pretty good exercise of self-control, given my intense love for these.
Anyway, I got Gravité, which was offered exclusively as a GWP (!) on their official website when you spend a certain amount of money. This was the first kaleidoscope I’ve owned that I fully appreciate the concept behind the couches de couleur technique—layering each tier over the other for a beautiful, complex effect.
The shades of Gravité are as follows:
— Nova: effervescent tan for warmth
— Solar: gilded saffron for femininity
— Levity: patina brass for contrast
— Dark Matter: jewel-toned aubergine for depth
Usually, the layers are warm-cool-hot-cold, so I’m not sure what’s going on here, since it seems largely warm-toned, but like I said, I love the overall effect.
I mean, check out the layered swatch here in the last photo. So beautiful.
I haven’t tried these on my eyes yet. They’re not as buttery as some of the Le Métier de Beauté eyeshadows. Some of the colors here have a bit of grit in them, though I can’t deny their amazing ability to blend and get along with each other. 🙂
Le Métier de Beauté is cruelty-free.
