I saw this tweet and if you know me, you know that I have this obsession to build a collection of all of Le Metier de Beaute’s kaleidoscopes. Unfortunately, I only knew about this wonderful brand late last year and so now I am missing a lot of the early k-scopes. So when the Neiman Marcus in Northbrook had their own exclusive limited edition eye kaleidoscope, it’s already a no-brainer. Last Saturday my package came and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Oak Street Beach, just north of the Magnificent Mile, is one of Chicago’s most popular spots to see and be seen. Oak Street Beach is a haven to inline skaters, cyclists, volleyball enthusiasts and, of course, sunbathers. The sandy beach is wide and concrete areas at either side are also popular for sunbathing and people-watching.
Here are the shades…
And now for swatches…
And now for the FOTD…
I layered all four shades from top to bottom and I blended it up and out. I lined my upper lash line using Le Metier de Beaute Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Noir with a slight wing. I topped it with the fourth shade in the kaleidoscope, the jewel toned teal.

What made me love about this k-scope is the last shade, the jewel toned teal. It totally made the otherwise nude k-scope pop. And it is not a flat teal but it is a really gorgeous jewel toned teal.
