Eye Color Quad ($55 or $80) in #209. Today, we'll check out #210. Both add a touch of blue - although different hues - to a neutral palette. If you'd like, you can see a short film featuring La Beauté Mediterranéé at the Clé de Peau Web site. Radiance becomes you!
A new collection inspired by a sunlit Mediterranean sky and clear blue sea stretching to infinity. A white hot sun blanching the earth. Bathe in its aura. Glow with its captivating radiance and limitless beauty. Lips are lustrous. Eyes glisten like jewels, reflecting the lucidity of the sea. The look expresses the pure energy and stunning allure of the Mediterranean.
I purchased both new quads from the Mediterranean Beauty Collection at Neiman
Marcus. As with all the new items, I opted for the refills, so you will
see a plastic container below. The compact adds an extra $25, which adds
up when you buy one of the quads. Since they take up less space when
stacked in my bathroom, I'm perfectly happy with the refills.
The skin-care benefits to which Clé de Peau Beauté refers are argan tree
oil, which provides smooth application and hydrating wear, and Clé de
Peau's proprietary advanced moisturizing Hydro-Wrap Complex. Somehow,
the ingredients the company uses combine to produce luxurious makeup.
Quad #210 reinforces Clé de Peau's blue seas theme with one blue shade to add contrast to the neutrals. I took swatch photos in full, afternoon sun. I applied all four shades heavily with a sponge-tipped applicator.
The brown at the bottom of my arm is applied heavily. As a result, it looks muddy. It's a prettier shade when applied lightly - appropriately. It does look great as an eyeliner, as it was intended to be used, given its size in the palette: small. Wear brown mascara, not black, and you'll have a fresh, new, beachy look.
Of the two new Eye Color Quads, #209 is my favorite. It's lighter and better suited to my pale complexion. I think this one, #210, was designed for woman who like or can wear more color.
I'd recommend you stop by a Clé de Peau Beauté counter and explore the magnificent new colors. Or, check them out online at the Clé de Peau Beauté Web site. I have photos of the new Enhanced Lip Luminizers and promise I'll post them very soon.
