Cle De Peau seems to be the most expensive cosmetic brand that I have come across. At almost $75 a lipstick I would think someone would either need amazing reasons to purchase it or too much money.
The packaging is what I would expect for a high end brand; the lipstick is enclosed in a navy blue container with a gold top that has the Cle De Peau logo embedded in it.
The shape of this bullet really works! I had my doubts when I first saw it but the edges make it perfect to get in the inner corners of your lips and the flat surface allows you to swipe over your lips once and not miss any spots.
T3 is medium rose colour with some subtle berry tones to it that I only noticed after applying this to my lips (as you’ll see the colour of the swatch and the colour on my lips are quite different). The texture of this lipstick is what got me. Its very rare that I find a lipstick that has a high shine to it without looking frosty. T3 maintains the perfect amount of shine – it gives my lips a hydrated appearance. Also, the fine lines in my lips are practically gone with this lipstick and it lasts a solid 3 hours on me (without eating). This shade applies opaque in one swipe, I dont feel the need to put any more on.
Bottom Line – this is luxury at its best. Is it a necessity? Absolutely not; if you have your lipstick/lip gloss combination then stick to it. This did not wow me enough to warrant further purchases but it does act as a nice pick me up.
Overall Impression- 7/10. At this price tag I was hoping the lipstick would stay true to the colour it appears to be in the bullet when it is applied. Oddly enough, one would think that it would considering the amount of pigment in this which gives your lips a full opacity in one swipe. However, with that being said, my lips are not the most pigmented out there so it makes me wonder, is this even possible?? This lipstick simply acts to enhance my natural lip colour so at that I would say that it is too expensive, give it a pass.
