Concealer is one of those must have items for most ladies, even those with perfect skin normally need a bit of conceaer, under the eyes, around the nose etc.
Cle De Peau is one of those concealers that are the stuff of legends.
Let me tell you I love concealer and have many many many many many…what was I saying? Oh I have a lot of concealers. A lot. (I feel a concealer special coming on!! What do you think ladies?)
The first I had heard of Cle De Peau’s concealer was when I heard that Chinnifer Aniston uses this. I bought one…yonks ago. I don’t even remember how long I have had this baby for but now that I’ve found it again, I will replace my Urban Decay 24/7 pencil, which is just ok, with this in my make up bag.
Anyway, to the concealer:
This comes in only 3 shades – ivory, ocher & beige. I have Ocher – the colour range is just ok, it doesn’t seem to cover darker skintones.
It comes in a stick – nothing special but quite heavy and well made.
Even though the texture is fairly opaque, I seriously think it is very very creamy and soft – this is just a light swipe:
It comes off like buttah, you see? If you have very dry skin this may feel dry to you, my skin is combination and can be dry on the cheeks and this concealer has always glided like silk one me. It also has opacity without being too heavy- I have found concealers that are opaque, like RMK’s Basic Concealer and Laura Mercier are extremely dry and need mixing with some cream. Not this one.
The price is high – it’s £55 for 5grams which goes without saying – this is pricey. It would put be off for sure but the one thing about this concealer is that it really is a geniune muli use product.
I find that i need something lighter and more brightening under the eyes, and something dry around my nose and something inbetween on the cheeks. With this product, I can use it under my eyes (even though the colour isn’t a bit lighter which is what I normally prefer for circles) – around my nose, on my cheeks. It blends without a PROBLEM. No streaking, no dryness, just rub and go.
I have been spoilt I suppose, with so many concealers around that I haven’t had the chance to marvel at this product recently. (I have been using IPSA and Armani under the eyes lately). Cle De Peau’s concealer requires the LEAST work, the LEAST amount of efforts for a great result.
Is it worth it? Pah, I can’t say it’s necessarily worth such a huge amount of money, but then I would probably spend it on an eyeshadow palette – and if there’s anything you should invest in make up wise, its your base products.
So, go on then, you twisted my arm:
