The Cheeky Chic Kaleidoscope by Le Metier de Beaute, $95

In classic Karen fashion, I brought three blush palettes with me when I went out of town to visit family over the holidays but ended up using just one of them the entire time, the new Cheeky Chic Kaleidoscope by Le Metier de Beaute.

I love the way it looks on my cheeks, but I do NOT love the redonkulous price.


It’s $95.


I could totally wear this palette every single day, and I did over a period of about two weeks.

It’s like a Swiss Army knife. It contains three matte blushes and a golden highlighter that swivel in and out. Nifty idea and awesome for travel.


All three of the blushes look delicate and natural on the skin, and when I top them with the golden highlighter, I feel like a glowing angel in a shampoo commercial… 🙂

The whole effect reminds me of the Ambient Blush Palette by Hourglass.

  • Comes with three matte blushes (a matte salmon-pink, a neutral pink and a beige nude) and a sheer golden highlighter, which Le Metier refers to as a luminizer.
  • I like to wear the matte salmon pink or matte neutral pink on the apples of my cheeks (sometimes, I even mix them together) and the golden highlighter, which has a finish that’s more of a sheen than a shimmer, on the tops of my cheekbones.

    I don’t mind the nude beige blush, but I think it’ll be better for lighter skin tones than mine. Sometimes I’ll mix it with one or more of the other blushes because, by itself, I can’t even see it until I’ve applied three or four layers.

  • The blushes and highlighter feel fantastically soft (like the Calvin Klein blanket I got at Costco for $16, yo!). They’re easy to blend, and when I wear them, I never feel like I’m drowning in rouge.
  • As beautiful as these workhorse colors are, the palette is terribly expensive. You could definitely find similar shades for less, but consider this: the powders work out to about $24 each, which is “cheaper” than a Chanel blush.
  • Available now at Le Metier de Beaute counters, Neiman Marcus stores and online.

    Beautiful colors, and the swivel packaging is so cute and compact. The price tag, though…ouch!

  3. I am in love with the packaging .. <3 This Kaleidoscope cheek palette reminds me of Eye shadow palette from melt cosmetics with similar packaging.. 🙂

    The blushes are way too light for me but I would love to get one for travel purposes for sure with better shades.. 😉

  6. Pretty, travel-friendly, blush… What´s not to like? Oh, yes, the price tag.
    Otherwise it would be too good to be true.

    I have been searching high and low for travel solutions like this, with the ever burning question: How do I satisfy my need for diversity and don’t end up cluttering the Camper Van in makeup?

    Love the colors. Hate the price tag. I’m probably the only person who doesn’t like the kaleidoscope packaging, as I prefer flat palettes. I find the stacked arrangement too bulky for travel.

    The colors definitely seem to fit you well and the packaging is too cute! But that price? Goodness lol

    The blush combination reminds me of Nars’ Final Cut selection for last spring. LMdB is so handy, but so darn expensive!

    You are looking FABULOUS, honey! Woo!

  15. Kim says:

    There is NO doubt that these are beautiful. And I did the math, too, and the same rationalization of price per color. 🙂

    Speaking of Costco, I wanted to ask you about Amlactin. I’ve read a lot of comments that complain about it smelling terribly pasticky and leaving skin sticky. I didn’t get that impression from you and I know you’re sensitive to smells. What’s the scoop? And do you use it all over or just on elbows/knees? Sorry if you already talked about this before. My memory isn’t what it used to be. 🙁
