Clé de Peau Beauté Eye Color Quad in Plum-Brown (#212) from the La Bohème Collection for Spring-Summer 2014
I purchased both (in refills) at Neiman Marcus. I guess I'm a cheapskate, but I will not pay $25 for a ho-hum case. It's the eye shadow I want, and since I don't travel, the chintzy little plastic case "does me" just fine. The #212 refill is shown at my house below, sans plastic. My photos were taken in full, mid-day sun.
This shadow collection highlights and defines the eyes with the ultimate in color sophistication and luxury care. Light-reflecting technology enhances natural eye-area contours. The finish is silky and flawless, resistant to smudging, creasing, and fading.
As I said earlier, I was really looking forward to trying these new palettes. I'm accustomed to some glimmer and gleam in my Clé de Peau colors, so I was anxious to see how the company translates matte - the marketing description of the shades. I'm happy to report that they are not flat matte. I'd say they have a satin finish (silky works too), one that shows me some life when the sun or light hits them directly.
Clé de Peau Beauté's stunning Spring-Summer 2014 Collection is available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, and select Saks Fifth Avenue stores. I have more to show you from La Bohème - soon, I hope.
