Cle de Peau Beauty Secret (R7) Extra Rich Lipstick

Cle de Peau Beauty Secret (R7) Extra Rich Lipstick ($60.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich coral-brown with a natural sheen and hint of shimmer. It’s more of a muted coral that doesn’t have the level of warmth that many corals have. Dior Versailles has a similar coral-brown-like base, but it has a lot of golden shimmer, so it appears lighter. MAC Mellowarm is reminiscent of this shade but with more orange. Cle de Peau #114 is slightly more orange, but it’s somewhat similar. Burberry Blush is pinker.
