Cle de Peau revamped their Eye Color Quads with twelve new shades ($110 every). They’re refillable and the compacts are offered individually ($75 for the eye quad and $35 for the mirrored compacts). They offered out in a short time on-line at Cle de Peau however you possibly can nonetheless discover them at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Saks Fifth Avenue. (Some shades seem like unique to the Cle de Peau web site.)
I ordered 4 of the shades and the Cle de Peau workforce kindly despatched a number of others for me to strive. There are fairly a number of gorgeous neutrals and whereas a variety of you might have talked about all of the neutrals look the identical from the compact. Aspect by facet a number of them look actually comparable, however I can guarantee you there are noticeable variations within the swatches.
These Eye Coloration Quads have a brilliant easy texture that looks like silk. They’ve an virtually bouncy texture to them. Every quad has a primer shade within the backside left nook that feels a little bit thicker/creamy.
Pigment varies by quad however general I might say colours run on the softer facet however are buildable. I wouldn’t name the softness “sheer” for the reason that pigment is fairly good, however a few of the shades do take some constructing. I swatched these with a fairly heavy hand on high of the Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas Primer. On the eyes the shimmer isn’t as intense as in my arm swatches.
Beach Pebbles 2 is probably the most pure/impartial palette with a lovely mixture of tan, brown and pale ivory shimmer.
Starlight 7 might be my favourite with the perfect mixture of peachy pink champagne, tan brown, impartial cream primer and a tender however deep brown.
Warm Ocean Sunset 8 has the prettiest mixture of softer pink/peach tones. The brown/plum is on the softer facet when layered on high of the opposite powders, however it applies with extra pigment on naked lids or with a moist brush.
Caviar Pearls 6 is a purple lovers dream come true with that gorgeous lavender purple, taupe and deeper cool brown.
Ocean Sunrise 4 is a cool-toned mixture of tan and brown.
Coral Reef 5 is probably the most pure on my pores and skin because the tones match my pores and skin tone the closest. The shades pull extra satiny matte than the opposite quads.
If you would like a staple eyeshadow palette you possibly can put on simply with out a number of effort there are many nice choices with the brand new Cle De Peau eyeshadow launch. High quality is nice, shade vary is gorgeous, heaps to like right here. Nevertheless in order for you colours with excessive affect and ultra-rich pigment, I’ll say that I feel these is perhaps too sheer for you.
Fast word if impartial eyeshadows aren’t your factor there are some enjoyable combos with inexperienced, lilac, purple, pink and blue too.
The largest draw back for me is the value. I don’t know that I can name these definitely worth the splurge at $110+ every (regardless that I splurged on 4). For the value and comparable pigment the Dior 5 Couleurs, NARS Palettes or Charlotte Tilbury are a greater purchase.
General love the standard and colours. There appears to be a rising pattern for refillable make-up whether or not it’s eyeshadow, basis, lipstick and so on. Having the refillable possibility isn’t actually a giant promoting level to me. If these quads (compact and eyeshadow) have been priced on the refill value I might be extra inclined to present them a extra glowing optimistic assessment. The worth virtually makes me really feel just like the Natasha Denona or Pat McGrath Palettes are a steal.
