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. MAC Satin Slip (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Love Nectar (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, glossier (90% similar). Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Imagine (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (L.S.D.) (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Lancome Mirrored Nude (09) (P, $22.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Dynasty at Dusk (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sephora Fresh Peach (07) (P, $12.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Chanel Sahara (610) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Orgasm (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Makeup Geek VIP (P, $15.00) is darker (85% similar). Smashbox Petal Metal (P, $24.00) is darker, brighter, glossier (80% 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.
