I have been lusting over lots of high end products lately and Cle De Peau’s Extra Silky Lipsticks caught my eye.
These babies are $50 each! Extortionate.
The come in sexy long blue tubes:
You get a jewel on the top:
We have 102 and 114:
102 is called cognac brown – I was a bit scared of this being too brown but its not. The other is from the newest collection and is a plummy mauve shade.
The packaging has a unique feature – a little window so you can see how much is left. When the colour disappears from the window you have 2 weeks left…approximately.
OK….I love these. I LOVE these. They are way to expensive. Are you nuts? £30 each!? But there is no doubting that the moment they touch your lips, they feel like….like…..buttah. Not just any buttah, the buttah from the finest cow..ok that’s a poor analogy. But this stuff is amazing, really really beautiful.
The texture is creamy and soft, and it melts onto your lips. It is pigmented but sheer at the same time – the colour payoff is just right with this lipstick.
These were the two colours the seller had – I wouldn’t have instinctively gone for a mauve or a brown since I am more of an orange and nude gal, but both of these colours are a lovely suprise. The mauve in particular looks dark in the tube, almost purple but its quite flattering on the lips.
The packaging is lovely but it doesn’t click in – so I would be a tad worried about the lid falling off. Also – and this is VERY VERY important – it does NOT retract (like the Nars Multiples – twist this all the way out and you will not be able to twist it back in). I am the queen of over clicking things because the product doesn’t appear to come out “It’s broken, it’s broken, how do I always get the broken one?” followed by a spurting of about half the product, followed by convincing your boyfriend that he *needs* to wear some lipgloss – anything to avoid wasting it.
Therefore, click carefully, this lipstick is about £1 per application, after all.
What else? Anything you want to know about these beauties?
