Soft Olive Smoke: A Clé de Peau Beauté Makeup Pictorial

This is probably the most luxe I’ve ever gone with a makeup look. Ever.

Clé de Peau is legendary for their uber-expensive skincare products, and in Singapore, a tube of stick concealer runs at S$116 while a tube of lipstick is $70. The newly launched Radiant Fluid foundation is $175.

That being said, after trying out some of their products, I do have to say they have all offered nothing but the best in terms of quality and luxury so far. 

My top recommendation to those new to the brand and who are interested in color makeup are their F/W 2014 Eye Color Quads. This range of sensationally smooth and blendable shades come in the most sophisticated colors, and those who want to splurge - but not too much - have the option of purchasing just the eyeshadow refills at $80 (cheaper than most other luxe brands here) and skipping the case.

I have 1 case, which I re-use with all of my 4 quads, only when I need to transport them around for some reason.

One of my faves is 302 Stardust (used for this pictorial), an antique black-gold, golden-olive, and rosy nude quad.

Products used: 

Cle de Peau Corrective Cream Veil to prime the skin

Cle de Peau Radiant Fluid Foundation O-20

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer SX06 as concealer

No powder

Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 Pencil in Seal Brown on brows

Lancome La Base Pro Paupiere eye base to prime lids

Cle de Peau 302 Stardust quad on eyes

Shiseido Maquillage Long Stay Pencil N in BK999 to line eyes

Cle de Peau Perfect Lash Mascara 1 on lashes

Shiseido Maquillage True Cheek blush in PK 201 ON CHEEKS

Cle de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick in 106 on lips

Hello, Viva Glam Rihanna II!

I was a little shocked and apprehensive when I uncapped the tube and twisted the lipstick up. Brown lipsticks (excepting nude tones and super-dark noir ones) are my Cryptonite.

I cannot pull them off. Never have been able to without looking corpse-like.

So when I saw Riri’s latest release, I thought “Oh darn this is only going to look good on caramel skins.”

After I swatched them on my wrist, I still wasn’t entirely convinced I could pull off the 90s glam metallic lipstick alone, but the gloss is nice, and layered together, I have to say the final “cosmic explosion” effect is pretty darned gorgeous and would work on most people (as long as you’re up for a little drama).

Long story short? If you love brown lips on you or have Rihanna’s bronze/caramel type skin (I think this would look fantastic on a lot of Latino and Indian women too) you might be able to pull off just the lipstick alone. The rest of us may need to layer them for the best effect, or just wear the gloss.

And as we know, Viva Glam sales go to a good cause, and it doesn’t help that the packaging is drop-dead gorgeous. Would you buy both? One? Or neither?

Hello, makeup.

Hello, makeup.

A throwback to my sparkly neutral weekend #FOTD. Aahhh weekend, come soon please. 

And a segue-way to mention I just put up a post on dayre.me/makeupbox - day 246 - talking about my recent experience with #botox (well, botulinum) for face slimming. This seems to be very uncommon in the West but increasingly popular in Asia. And for square-jawed girls like me it makes a big diff. 

Hop on over if you’re curious to see info on types of botulinum toxin, how long it lasts, pricing estimates - and the requisite highly unflattering 😋 before-after shots.
