This elegant, moisturizing lipstick is said to infuse the lips with luxurious color, texture, and skin care for a look of radiance like never before. Newly designed for Extra Rich Lipstick, the packaging feels as luxurious as it looks. The older packaging is shown above because I can't find a photo of the new faceted tube.
Jennifer Moon, the Clé de Peau representative, gave me a sample card. With a spectrum of 30 shades in three finishes, satin, silk, and velvet, it looks intriguing. Like most Clé de Peau Beauté lip colors, the color bullet is sold separately from the case (or holder). The Refill (color) is $40, and the holder is $25. Unlike the eye shadows, you really need both for the lipsticks, making Extra Rich Lipstick a very pricey lipstick.
I took swatch photos of 103, 203, 303, and 311 - top to bottom on my arm - in full sunshine. I applied each color with a concealer brush.
I will be the first in line to reserve 103, shown at the top of my arm. I think it's gorgeous. There are so many shades, though, I may have to see them all before I decide.
The sample card shows very tiny renditions of all the colors, grouped by category. They look gorgeous. There was no sense in trying to photograph it because the border is black. I can't wait to see the collection in person. If you would like to see what's coming, stop by your favorite Clé de Peau counter.
Update 7/27: Silly me for doubting! The lipsticks have arrived at counters, and they are gorgeous.
