Cle de Peau Lipstick ($65.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a newly released formula that is available in 12 permanent shades, plus two limited edition hues. The formula is supposed to have “ultra-vibrant, luminous HD color and rich lasting moisture” 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.

These sound right up my alley! So I’m very conflicted on if I should pick up one.

But, on the other hand. I have and love the MAC patent polish chubby lip pencil things. AND adore them. So that should be good enough for me, and my budget.

I love how shades like red carpet smooth out the lip texture! Christine, are there other formulas that do this? I would love to see a round up of your favourites one day!!

There’s no particular formulas that come to mind as only doing that – it’s more like from shade to shade, IMO.
