LET'S TALK ABOUT CLÉ DE PEAU

I remember when I first started making YouTube videos EVERYONE was raving about the *Clé De Peau Concealer. It was so expensive back then and is STILL sooooo expensive right now, but Clé De Peau was one of those beauty brands that was always on my bucket list to try. Until a few weeks ago I never even knew where I could get my hands on some Clé De Peau goodies, but while I was in the airport I spotted a Clé De Peau counter staring back at me from duty free and I just had to pick up a few bits to try. Of course I made it my mission to grab myself one of the infamous *concealer sticks but I also picked up a *foundation, *powder and *lipstick to try too. I’m so happy I was finally able to get my hands on some stuff from a brand that I’ve been swooning over for years

The stand out product for me has to be the *Radiant Fluid Foundation. It’s prreeeettyy expensive not gonna lie, but I feel like this is such a special product to have in my makeup collection. This is a super duper lightweight base that gives my skin a really natural-looking dewy glow. It’s blended with luxury ingredients like Japanese Pearl which gives the skin a satin smooth finish, Theanine which evens tone and Golden Silk Essence which improves clarity and suppleness. This is a foundation that I’m going to be saving for extra special occasions!

I also picked up one of the *Refining Pressed Powders which I’ve been really enjoying using. What I love about this stuff is that it’s super duper fine and feels incredibly silky on the face. Again, this is great for improving the appearance of uneven skin tone and generally giving the complexion a luminous finish. I’ve been using a little puff to sweep into the product before gently patting it onto my face. This stuff gives my makeup lasting power without feeling too heavy or dry. Love it!

The *Clé De Peau Concealer was the FIRST item on my list so I just had to grab one as soon as I saw it! I would kinda liken it to the *Nars Soft Matte Concealer (which you guys know I’m crazy for) but it’s possibly even dryer than that. I know I might not be making this sound very appealing but actually the dryness of the formula helps it to really stick to your skin and last all day. I usually apply this concealer straight onto my face from the stick and use my fingertips to blend it out. It gets a lot easier to work with and blend once you start patting it into the skin so don’t be alarmed by the dryness at first! I’ve been using this A LOT and I absolutely adore it! I know it’s a major splurge but I’ve always wanted to try this out and I’m so happy I finally did!

You guys know I’m the biggest lipstick fangirl EVER so when I saw the *Clé De Peau Enriched Lip Luminizers staring back at me from the shelf I knew I couldn’t leave without one! I feel like these are the luxury version of the *Surratt Lipsliques which you all know are one of my all time FAVOURITE lipstick formulas. I got mine in the shade ’Sparkling Light Pink’ which looks kinda scary in the packaging but it’s such a sheer, glossy finish and gives my lips gorgeous juicy pink sheen. I think these are around $35 so they’re a great product to choose if you want to get a feel for the brand before committing to something more expensive like the foundation. I’ve fallen in love with these Lip Luminizers!

I’m definitely a Clé De Peau convert but I would say that there are a lot of great dupes out there for these products so you really don’t have to spend a lot to get something that feels almost as luxury as the items that I mentioned. I think I was the most impressed by the *foundation and *concealer so I’m really happy that I bit the bullet and brought these home with me. If you’re looking for some makeup that feels super duper special then *Clé De Peau is definitely worth trying.

  • My friend swears by their tinted moisturizer, of which I’m very envious, but it’s not available in my country!! Hoping for a counter to pop up one day.

  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen a CDP makeup counter in Toronto. Maybe there’s one in Yorkdale? Buh. I’m traveling to London in June, so I’ll definitely make it a point to check duty-free at Heathrow. That foundation and lipstick both sound pretty awesome.

  • I love the sound of the concealer and foundation and such sleek packaging!
