- Cameo is a gilded peachy pink with warm white shimmer…great for the brow bone and as a highlighter.
- Anorak is a khaki gunmetal taupe with a rich satin finish…my unequivocal all over lid shade.
- Jackie is a matte heather plum that looks lighter in the pan than when swatched…it adds depth to the crease and offers color without being too bold.
- Dandy is a breathtaking muted teal blue with shimmer. It reminds me of the best part of a peacock’s tail feathers and looks lovely as an accent color in the crease and lower region of the eyes.

Above and below: Carnaby Street on the eyes…this particular kaleidoscope works well with plenty of mascara, a rich black liner on the waterline (I used Marc Jacobs Blacquer) and a pale lip…(so “Swinging 60’s”).

Bottom Line: The Le Metier de Beaute Carnaby Street Kaleidoscope is infinitely wearable…dependent on the ordering of the shades and intensity of application, the results can go from sophisticatedly subtle to stunningly dramatic with but a few passes. I’ve never thought of myself as a multiple pans of eyeshadow type of girl, but Carnaby Street has changed my mind…four shades, five minutes, and my eyes are good to go!
