Cle de Peau Red Carpet is a very cool-toned, medium red with a natural finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $65.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Cle de Peau Red Carpet Lipstick ($65.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark pinky red with cool, blue undertones and a soft shine. It had good pigmentation, though it did not have full coverage and was not buildable to full coverage. The consistency was incredibly smooth, silky, and creamy without being heavy or thick--it looked almost like a gloss with just how smooth it made my lips appear. You can noticeably see the difference between the texture of my lips with this shade on and Water Lily (below), which goes to show just how effective the formula can be. It wore well for five and a half hours,, left a slight stain behind, and was moisturizing.
The formula is supposed to have "ultra-vibrant, luminous HD color and rich lasting moisturie" that has a "silk, semi-matte finish lasting for 8 hours." Under "Key Benefits," they repeat that it has a "long-lasting finish for up to 8 hours" and "delivers lasting moisture for up to 4 hours" (I swear, that seems like it's switched--it would really make more sense for it to last for four hours but keep lips hydrated for longer than the color itself lasted). The consistency was lightweight, creamy with a more emollient feel as it applied that had a lightly tacky feel afterward. Color coverage varied from medium and buildable to mostly opaque with light to moderate shine. Some shades applied more smoothly across the lips and made my lips appear smoother and plumper but not all shades did so. The wear was four to six ours with some of the deeper, richer shades (like reds) wearing longer. I found the formula very hydrating and comfortable to wear. I did not notice any taste but they had a subtle, rosy scent.
A luxurious lipstick with petal-shaped tip that envelopes lips in ultra-vibrant, luminous HD color and rich lasting moisture. Leaves a silk, semi-matte finish lasting for 8 hours for youthfully smooth, full-looking lips. Packaged in a perfectly weighted lacquer case for smooth and easy application.
