Cle de Peau Pewter Veil (311) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Pewter Veil (311) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of cooler-toned shades in hues of blue-teal, dark gray, pewter, and bright silver. Not particularly enamored with this quad, as each shade has some sort of issue, and at this price point, it becomes hard to justify or excuse the downsides.

Cle de Peau Golden Lace (313) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Golden Lace (313) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of warmer neutrals. The strength of Cle de Peau’s eyeshadow formula is in how soft, silky, and smooth they typically are, so they blend out easily and sit nicely on the eyelid without looking powdery or dusty. They also seem to “melt” against the skin after an hour for a really luminous sheen. This one has a sparkly shade in it, which gave me some trouble as it was looser and had a little fall out, but all told, the four shades were easy to apply, were fairly pigmented, and lasted seven to eight hours.

Round-up: Cle de Peau Eye Color Quads Overview & Thoughts

It only took a year, but I finally reviewed all of the Cle de Peau Eye Color Quads in the permanent range. After receiving two as press samples, I loved the texture of the formula so much that I bought the other six, which I wouldn’t repeat again. I still really like the texture, generally, across all of the quads, but the colors are more dupable in far too many of the quads, and there are a lot more neutrals that run together across the variations that inspire me less after trying. They’re also just not as impressive relative to their price point (which doesn’t leave a lot of room for error).  The ones I reach for most are Stardust (302) (A-) and Stellar Gaze (307) (A-).

Cle de Peau Satin Moon (305) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Satin Moon (305) Eye Color Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a smokier, medium to dark set of neutral shades, which still leans warm-toned, though it isn’t as overtly warm-toned as a few of the other quads. Unfortunately, this quad had one of the more disappointing eyeshadows that I’ve tried from the entire quad range, as it was drier, a little powdery, and harder to blend on the skin. The color combination comes together particularly well, and there’s enough contrast to create a few layered, neutral looks with a smoky edge, so it’s a shame that it didn’t perform better.

Cle de Peau Champagne Supernova (304) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Champagne Supernova (304) Eye Color Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is an interesting mix of lighter, spring-y shades that aren’t quite pastel, but they’re not brights either. This quad seemed very shimmery, almost metallic, at times, and I would have loved to see one darker, more contrasting shade instead of one of the lighter shades (perhaps the gold). I had minor, but noticeable, fall out with two of the four shades, which was disappointing. I think a primer would help kick this one up a notch more so than some of the other variations I’ve tried.
