Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing glossy stain that hydrates for “four hours.” There are eight shades, and I bought seven of the eight (inadvertently, I had purchased three from one retailer and forgot I had done so and then bought six at another retailer with two overlapping and one missing, LOL!), so here are swatches!

Cle de Peau’s Luminizing Face Enhancer formula is a powder highlighter for the face (that’s about all official description says). It is available as just a pan or in a bejeweled compact for $95 (when confronted with paying $40 for packaging, I cannot do it, so I always get the pans and keep them in a Z-Palette!). I’m a big fan of the formula for a subtle to light highlighter–it’s not ultra-metallic, shimmery, glittery, or shiny on the skin–and tends to complement satin to frost blushes exceptionally well without adding a lot of additional sheen. The texture was very soft, finely-milled, and smooth to the touch, which made it easy to apply to the skin as it diffused with minimal work and produced a subtle, but noticeable, glow to the skin. It looked more glowing than overtly shimmery on my skin tone, but it may be more noticeable on very fair skin tones due to the natural warmth of the powder. The powder lasted for eight hours on me skin, which is normal-to-dry.

Cle de Peau is pretty minimalist when it comes to describing their color products, so there’s not much to this one other than it is a highlighting powder. For anyone new to the brand, the Luminizers are available as refill pans (no compact) for $55, while if you want the compact, it’ll run you $95 (total); I am not personally motivated to spend $40 on a compact myself, so you’ll see I only bought the pan on its own. The texture of the powder is incredibly smooth and finely-milled, though this shade had a little bit more sparkle (not just fine shimmer) in it than some of the other shades in the range (particularly compared to the Gold one). It had good color payoff that could easily be sheered/diffused and blended out for a soft, warming glow with a delicate sheen that didn’t emphasize pores. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Cle de Peau Modern Pink (2) Lip Gloss ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, peachy-pink base with a lot of fine, peachy-gold shimmer. Hourglass Imagine (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Satin Slip (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Fresh Peach (07) (P, $12.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). MAC Dynasty at Dusk (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (L.S.D.) (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Sahara (610) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Orgasm (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Long-time readers might remember that this was one of my very first luxury purchases, and it still remains one of my favorite glosses of all-time (it’s absolutely dupable by other, less expensive ranges, though!). I recently repurchased it when I picked up the newly-released highlighter shade, so I figured I’d do an updated review. There’s not much to the description–“combines the drama and vibrancy of gloss with enduring deep color.” The texture is lightweight with light tackiness but is not overly sticky or goopy (it seemed tackier than I remember it being, though). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a lot of pearl and light shine. Some of the lighter, peachier base color gathers in lip lines, while the pearl/shimmer disperses evenly across the lips. There was no discernible scent or taste. The gloss lasted for five hours on me and was nicely hydrating over time.

Cle de Peau Pewter Veil (311) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Pewter Veil (311) Eyeshadow Quad
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.

Note: I purchased the refill pan only without the compact, and should you want the compact, it will run you $25 on top of the $55 price. I’m not really into packaging these days, so I prefer to pop a magnet on the back and store in freestyle palettes (like Z Palettes).

Pewter Veil #1 is a muted, medium-dark blue-teal with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation but a slightly dusty consistency that felt a smidgen drier and was more troublesome to work with. The color didn’t go on as evenly nor did it blend out as easily as most Cle de Peau shades to. This shade started to fade noticeably after seven hours of wear. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Smashbox Pacific (LE) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow (P, $6.75) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #5 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Clinique Aqua Pop (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Teal Appeal (P, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Fringe (P) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Blue Karma (LE, $22.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pewter Veil #2 is a medium-dark charcoal gray with cool undertones and a sparkling, frosted sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but the texture was dry and a little dusty to work with. I had some sparkle fall out over time, even though the base color lasted for seven hours. NARS Bad Behaviour (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Granite (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Black No. 1 (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Les Annees Folles #4 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Surf's Up (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #2 (P) is darker (90% similar). Stila Black Diamond (P) is darker (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #3 (P) is darker (85% similar). MAC Graphic Style (LE, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). CoverGirl Charcoal (335) (P, $4.99) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Say It Isn't So (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Galaxy (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Stila Black Pearl (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Viseart Diane (P) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pewter Veil #3 is a light pewter with subtle, cooler undertones paired with warmer shimmer. The color coverage was mostly opaque, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable. It was the best-performing shade of the four. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours. Giorgio Armani #19 (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D552 Crystalline Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Lancome Joie (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Guerlain Two Stylish #1 (P) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Fly by Twilight (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Arctic Grey (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Telepathy (P) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #4 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Hourglass Graphite #5 (P) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Palladium (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #1 (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Dior Etoile (021) (P, $31.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Lost Coast #1 (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). bareMinerals Golden Pear (LE, $14.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Antares (P, $29.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pewter Veil #4 is a bright, sparkling silvery-white with a frosted sheen. The texture was a little looser, so the color separated more when applied to the skin, which sheered out the coverage and had fall out as the sparkles didn’t bind with the powder as well. It wore well for seven hours but had some fall out. MAC Filament (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Treasure Me (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm #34 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Nimbus Cloude (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Lovely #1 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cle de Peau Golden Lace (313) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Golden Lace (313) Eyeshadow Quad
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.

Note: I purchased the refill pan only without the compact, and should you want the compact, it will run you $25 on top of the $55 price. I’m not really into packaging these days, so I prefer to pop a magnet on the back and store in freestyle palettes (like Z Palettes).

Golden Lace #1 is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and lighter purple shimmer that gives it a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended out well and didn’t look dry on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading. Stila Plum (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Olympe (871) (LE, $31.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Show Plum Love (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Jammin' (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Smashbox Eggplant (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #6 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Dior Capital of Light #5 (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S832 Ash Plum (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Sephora Girlish Appeal (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Mauve Over (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Overlook (P, $14.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Disney by Sephora Master (LE) is darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Seductive Rose #4 (P) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Dark Lullaby (LE, $23.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE) is warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Cabernet (LE) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Oh My Mocha! (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Golden Lace #2 is a slightly muted, medium orange within brown tones and a frosted sheen. It had nice color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency that applied well to the skin. This shade stayed on for eight hours before fading. Sephora Fall Leaves (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Vendome #3 (P) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Mortal #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). NARS St-Paul-de-Vence (Left) (LE, $25.00) is brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Easy Baked (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #1 (P) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Play (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Golden Lace #3 is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. There is fine sparkle in this shade, which didn’t seem to make it rough or gritty, but the texture had a slightly looser consistency compared to other shades, which made it prone to sheering out on the skin. It had semi-opaque coverage that wasn’t buildable to opaque coverage without a primer to adhere to. It lasted for seven and a half hours with slight fall out. Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky #2 (P) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Just Gleaming (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Rivoli #2 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D716 Crystalline Papaya (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Glitter Glue (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

MAC Phresh Out #1 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Givenchy Tentation #4 (P) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Golden Lace #4 is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had stronger yellow tones than a true gold, which gave it a slightly “cooler” appearance compared to many golds. I think that actually helps it work with this palette, which runs pretty warm otherwise. The texture was silky and smooth, which made blending an easy job, and the color pigmentation was opaque. This shade wore well for eight hours before creasing slightly. Tarte Mermaid (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Studly (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Praline (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Fool's Gold (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Golden Coast (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Ceska (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Natasha Denona Pearl (56P) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Ciate Vaycay (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia 10K (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #1 (LE) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Cle de Peau Stellar Gaze #1 (P) is darker (85% similar). Chanel Empreinte du Desert #2 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Vicuna (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). Smashbox Fortune (LE) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
