Le Metier de Beaute Obsidian Odyssey Eye Kaleidoscope ($95.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes five shades for eyes in shades of black, navy blue, warm pink, copper, and golden brown. The True Color Eyeshadow is a wet/dry formulation (at least, this is what it used to be touted as; current descriptions are less helpful), including the mattes (they don’t harden if you use water with them). According to the brand, matte and shimmer finishes are supposed to have full coverage, while satin finishes are supposed to have sheer coverage (but no specificity regarding wet/dry). There are a lot of Le Metier’s eyeshadows that I love, and I often like how they pair colors in their Kaleidoscopes, but unless every single shade knocks it out of the park, the price is difficult to justify, which is the case here. Two of the five shades are excellent, while two are middling, and one is particularly disappointing.
