Cle de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick (T2 Just Joey)

Cle de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick

Last week, I shared Red Abundance (R2), one of eight shades of Cle de Peau Extra Rich Lipsticks ($60.00 for 0.14 oz.). This week, I’m sharing Just Joey (T2), which is a browned-tan nude with a little peachiness to it. It is completely opaque in just one stroke, and it delivers a beautiful soft glossed finish without shimmer. This would be a beautiful, upgraded nude on both cool and warm skin tones, but particularly so on warmer skin tones.

The Extra Rich line-up includes a total of eight shades: R1 Black Bacara, R2 Red Abundance, R3 Leonardis, R4 Danse du Feu, T1 Halloween, T2 Just Joey, T3 Baby Julia, and T4 Calliope.

The Extra Rich Lipstick formula is opaque, smooth, and easy to wear. I get between three and five hours of wear, even with more nude shades like Just Joey. It clings and hugs lips without being drying (but actually hydrating), but it is still a lovely textured lipstick. It’s just not this thick or overly creamy lipstick that slips around lips, but it doesn’t feel tight or heavy either. I’ve also found that it de-emphasizes the lip lines with the effect really settling in after about fifteen minutes of wear.

5-Minute Makeup: Neutrals

5-Minute Makeup:  Neutrals

Super fast neutral eye I did last week!   I have some tutorials to upload still, but unfortunately, there’s no tutorial for this look, because I really was in a major rush and didn’t have time to record it.  Sorry in advance!

Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Naked Lunch eyeshadow all over the lower lid.  Apply Romp eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid, then lightly blend Bronze eyeshadow in the outer crease and very outer edge of the lid with the 226. Blend Grain eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone . Bring everything together by applying Lucky liner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Margin blush on the apples of the cheeks and smooth with fingertips.

For lips, apply Giulette lipstick first, and then layer Nymphette lipglass for a complementing lip.
