Cle de Peau Beaute La Beaute Metalique – Modern Metallic for Spring/Summer 2011


Cle de Peau Beaute La Beaute Metalique – Modern Metallic

Introducing the NEW La Beauté Metalique – Clé de Peau Beauté’s Spring/Summer 2011 color collection that reflects the precious metallics found in sunlit summer days and evenings. The exquisite combinations of translucent color capture the beauty of the ever-changing lights and promote radiance and luminosity that becomes a part of the skin.

Clé de Peau Beauté creates a modern allure with the most gorgeous hues of summer; bronzes, burnt coppers, soft pinks, subtle lilacs and pale blues that bring this glorious season to life, with a multi-dimensional brilliance that is fresh and new. Clé de Peau Beauté Color Creator, Lucia Pieroni’s inspiration for La Beauté Metalique was a desire to embody the glistening color of sunshine reflected in a cool, serene summer stream. “With La Beauté Metalique I have created a sophisticated and enchanting collection of color combinations that reflects dancing layers of translucent light. This is a chic yet contemporary aesthetic that captures the beauty of summer.” says Ms. Pieroni.

The collection includes Eye Color Quads along with the new shades of Extra Rich Lipstick and Extra Silky Lipstick. The perfect complement to this radiant assortment, Clé de Peau Beauté offers a Cream Foundation SPF26. The wondrous manipulation of light in this new make-up collection combines with the power of illuminating texture to enhance the feeling of sophistication and femininity.

Cream Foundation SPF 26 ($120.00)

Using the latest optical management technology, this foundation delivers illumination from within, as each skin cell comes alive with light and radiance. The illuminating finish and texture is derived from the new Revitalizing Moisture Complex, formulated with a luxurious infusion of treatment ingredients to optimize the condition of skin with continual use. It also features Reflect Change Powder, a unique powder coated with golden pearl which helps skin seem lit from within. Cream Foundation SPF 26 offers superior medium to full coverage with a soft-matte finish and is packaged in a convenient tube.

NARS Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick

NARS Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick

NARS Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “matte, hot pink hue saturates lips with rich, bold color.” It has a slight sheen to it–I wouldn’t say it’s completely matte–and really rich, vibrant fuchsia pink with blue undertones. The color coverage is excellent, and it really takes no more than a pass and a half or so to get even, full color coverage.

my thoughts on the formula: Pure Matte lipsticks have a matte finish, and while they’re not moisturizing, they don’t rob my lips of moisture. Mattes do, however, last longer on lips, and NARS’ Pure Matte lipsticks last between four and five hours on me, though deeper shades like Carthage last five to six hours.

NARS Kismet Nail Lacquer

NARS Kismet Nail Lacquer

NARS Kismet Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic sunflower.” It’s a very deep marigold kind of color–warm, yellow, orange, and gold all wrapped into one. It has a slightly metallic finish, so there are some brush strokes in the final result. I was able to get nearly opaque color in two coats (which is what is shown in the swatches). I usually get a week of wear out of NARS’ lacquer formula, and Kismet is a thicker polish, but it applies evenly.
