Cle de Peau #129 Extra Silky Lipstick

Cle de Peau #129 Extra Silky Lipstick ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, yellow-toned pink with very fine pale peach-gold micro-shimmer and a glossy sheen. It’s such a soft color, but the color payoff is almost opaque–you can just barely see the shadow of my lip freckle. Dior Pinky Mauve is a bit darker. Estee Lauder Night Bloom is similar but pinker. Maybelline Warm Me Up is a bit darker and grayer. MAC Angel is pinker and has a creamier look. Urban Decay Naked is a darker pinker.

I’m a big fan of the Extra Silky Lipstick range; it’s lightweight, hydrating, and feels and looks incredible on. With lighter shades like #129, it wears for around four hours, but I have had longer wear (more like six or so) with some of the darker shades–about average for lipsticks for me. This formula is very, very emollient and creamy, so I recommend applying less than you think you need, because otherwise you’ll overapply. It doesn’t look bad, but you’ll waste product and at this price point (and for the quantity you get–about 30% less than the average lipstick), you don’t want to waste any! These are also scent- and taste-free from my experience.

A
I love how creamy and moisturizing these lipsticks are, and I'm always surprised how much color they impart, because they seem so soft at first, but they really do deliver on pigmentation, too.
