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.
