Cle de Peau Persimmon & Perfect Peach Cream Blushes

Persimmon

Cle de Peau Persimmon Cream Blush ($60.00 for 0.21 oz.) is medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. I felt like it looked more coral the more I blended out, whereas initially it appeared more orange-toned. It had sheer to medium, buildable coverage that applied evenly to the skin. The texture was smooth, thin, lightweight, and just a bit emollient initially but felt more like a powder once it hit my skin. The color wore well for eight hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have “the perfect touch of sheer luminous color” that can be applied with fingertips or a brush. The consistency is firmer in the pot; it’s definitely a cream-based product, but only a little comes away from the surface and dries down within twenty seconds of being applied to the skin. The coverage was semi-sheer, buildable up to semi-opaque coverage. I liked applying these with either a small, synthetic stippling brush or my fingertips, though my preferred method was using a brush to initially apply the color and then lightly patting the edges with my fingertips. On me, the blushes lasted between seven and nine hours on my normal-to-dry skin. The formula is rose-scented, and I get a faint hint of it when worn.

Cranberry

Cle de Peau Cranberry Cream Blush ($60.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. The more blended out the color, the less shimmery it appeared on the skin–more like a natural sheen than overtly shimmery. The consistency was thin with enough slip to blend easily but it dried down quickly and set in place for a solid eight hours on me. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage.

Cle de Peau 101 Grounded Eye Color Duo

101 Grounded

Cle de Peau 101 Grounded Eye Color Duo ($55.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a medium-dark brown and golden peach. The formula is supposed to have a “silky” feel, be moisturizing on the lids (though it is a powder formula), long-wearing, and have true-to-pan color. I like the effect of Cle de Peau’s eyeshadows on the lid; I think that “moisturizing” aspect of them makes them sit well on the lid as time passes, where they meld well to bare skin. I find that they can be semi-opaque to opaque, more buildable and very easy to wear as a wash of color, if desired. The eyeshadows are rose-scented, though I only just noticed the scent with the compact open but not applied.

As a FYI, Cle de Peau sells the duos as a pan-only, which is not magentized but you could stick a magnet to it so it would adhere to most freestyle palettes, or purchase their case for $25.

Modern Era (315)

Cle de Peau Modern Era (315) Eye Color Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a shimmery, green-themed “quad.” All four shades were decent to good with slightly softer, looser consistencies, which made a couple shades appear sheerer and fade a bit faster. Both were solvable with regular eyeshadow primer as a base. The pop of brighter, lighter green was interesting, as it had a starker appearance but still paired well with the other shades when I tried it.

Les Annees Folles

Cle de Peau Les Annees Folles Holiday Eye Color Palette ($125.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette that features eight eyeshadows. Each row of eyeshadows is actually removeable and can be put into one of the brand’s quad compacts. The formula was very finely-milled, but it was so soft that it was prone to sheering out as it was a little thin and dusty, though the formula blended well on the skin. If you’re someone who wants very true-to-pan color and intense coverage that lasts, you’ll likely be disappointed with this palette. If you’re someone who likes softer, more muted takes on color and doesn’t mind using an eyeshadow primer, it might be more in your wheelhouse (but it is undoubtedly expensive, so there are numerous other options that are more versatile–e.g. capable of delivering intense pigmentation but can also be sheered down).
