Cle de Peau Baby Universe (303) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Baby Universe (303) Eye Color Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a more mid-tone set of warm-toned neutrals that’s also a bit less frosted than some of the quads in the range. The major upside to the Cle de Peau formula is how blendable and silky in feel it is, which makes it easy to apply to the lid, and the formula adheres well to the skin without a primer. I liked this quad, but it’s certainly dupable as there are so many neutral quads and palettes to choose from these days.

Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky (301) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky (301) Eye Color Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of lighter, warm-toned neutrals. It’s just a so-so palette, and the colors are fairly dupable that it’s not one I’d splurge on, as I think there are better options for warm-toned neutral palettes (or quads) out there these days.

5 Decadent Highlighters for Spring

When it comes to highlighters that illuminate and add a glowing sheen to the skin without emphasizing pores, I’m obsessed. Every year, there are so many fabulous limited edition highlighters that get released, but thankfully, there are also some excellent permanent options that I never tire of. Here are some of my favorites!

  1. Cle de Peau Delicate Pink — a soft, shimmering pink-beige
  2. Burberry Nude Radiance No. 01 — a sheer, liquid luminizer
  3. Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight — a warm, golden beige sheen
  4. Becca Moonstone — a shimmery, golden champagne
  5. Kevyn Aucoin Starlight — a shimmery, warm peach

Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse (306) Eye Color Quad

Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse (306) Eye Color Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of peach, plum, silver, and black. It reminded me of New Year’s Eve for some reason (maybe it’s the mixture of black and silver with an overall metallic sheen). I think the colors work really well together, but I wasn’t as impressed with the pigmentation or the texture of two of the shades. At this price point, I would expect perfection, particularly with respect to being soft, smooth, and blendable. It did apply better than I think it swatched, which was a nice surprise, but it could have been better. (Note, the price is for just the pan of four shades, if you want the official compact to house them, that will run you an additional $25. I keep all of mine in a Z-palette.)

Cle de Peau Stardust (302) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Stardust (302) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes shades of beige, warm green, brown, and murky green. Cle de Peau’ sells their eyeshadows as refills (which is just a plastic pan with the four shades), and you can elect to purchase a plastic compact to put them in for an additional $25. I put mine in a Z-palette by attaching a small magnetic to the bottom of the pan. It’s an interesting mix of shades if you like your beige and greens together, but I didn’t end up loving the way the colors worked together, partially because the warmer green shade doesn’t look as intense on the lid as it does swatched or in the pan, so it loses contrast on the lid.

Cle de Peau Cosmic Aura (308) Eyeshadow Quad

Clé de Peau Cosmic Aura (308) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of four shades that run cooler-toned with a purple bent. I knew I had to see just how well (or poorly) the brand could do purples, as this is a color range that many brands under-deliver on. Unfortunately, this quad did fall short: two of the purple-hued shades were slightly powdery in texture as well as weaker in pigment. This is a more unique set of shades, relative to Stellar Gaze (307) that I reviewed earlier, though the second shade is one that a few brands do.
