I recently invested in buying 3 shades of the Clé de Peau Beauté concealer after a client of mine insisted on how amazing they were. I say ‘invested’ because these babies don’t come cheap so if you’re on a budget, keep moving ! I bought these online from Nordstrom and they are priced at $70 which is approx 260AED.
When my client insisted I used her Clé De Peau Beauté concealer I was surprised by how easy it was to blend, and I loved the ultra-smooth consistency. That’s why I decided to take a plunge on that makeup budget !
This is a twist-up stick concealer and the 3 shades I got are :
Beige – This is the lightest shade I got, and actually has a soft pink undertone. It doesn’t look very beige at all and it’s almost a blend of a MAC NW20 & NC20.
Ocre – This actually has a more beige undertone which would be better for covering any pigmentation around the lips or around the nose. If I had to use this under the eye, I would opt for a salmon or peach corrector first, and then apply this on top.
Honey- Contradictory to the name, this has a prominent peach undertone. This would be the ideal color tone for those with intense bluish/green under eye circles.
For the most part, I was really happy with the shades of the concealers. With most brands I find that their concealers are too yellow/beige which tends to make the under eye area stand out by looking grey and sallow, and who the hell wants that ! So I absolutely loved the section of colors I got for my kit.
I tried the concealers myself and I was really satisfied by the results. They’re not overly cakey or creamy, so they settle in a lot faster without substantial creasing. The formulation of the concealer is really amazing ! I wore it for almost 10 hrs and was out and about running errands and nothing smudged or creased and with the heat and humidity, that’s almost a miracle ! There was a smudge of mascara underneath but it’s only because I hardly set the concealer with any powder, so considering that, I thought it was simply brilliant. No extra touch ups needed, no cakeiness, and relentlessly long-lasting!
I’m always on the lookout for the holy grail of foundations and concealers, and now I can finally add the Clé de Peau Beauté concealer to the list.
