Cle de Peau #106 Extra Silky Lipstick ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a creamy softened medium blue-pink with a glossy finish and nearly imperceptible shimmer. Cle de peau’s Extra Silky Lipsticks are absolutely a dream to wear–they’re smooth, soft, creamy, and moisturizing. They don’t steal a single drop of moisture while you wear them, and despite the creaminess and slip of these lipsticks, I still get a good four hours of wear. It has a naturally glossy finish, so they’re easy to wear alone.
Of course, the downfall of Extra Silky lipsticks is their price tag. At over $50 a pop, they’re certainly a luxury lipstick that’s hard to “collect ’em all.” To make matters worse, you only get 0.07 oz. in each (which is about half of the average lipstick size). Even though they’re quite pigmented, they’re easy to over-apply, so apply less than you think to maximize your purchase!
The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.
