Cle de Peau revamped their Eye Color Quads with twelve new shades ($110 every). They’re refillable and the compacts are bought individually ($75 for the eye quad and $35 for the mirrored compacts). They bought out in a short time on-line at Cle de Peau however you’ll be able to nonetheless discover them at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Saks Fifth Avenue. (Some shades seem like unique to the Cle de Peau website.)
I ordered 4 of the shades and the Cle de Peau crew kindly despatched just a few others for me to strive. There are fairly just a few gorgeous neutrals and whereas a lot of you have got talked about all of the neutrals look the identical from the compact. Aspect by facet plenty of them look actually related, however I can guarantee you there are noticeable variations within the swatches.
These Eye Shade Quads have a brilliant clean texture that seems like silk. They’ve an virtually bouncy texture to them. Every quad has a primer shade within the backside left nook that feels a bit of thicker/creamy.
Pigment varies by quad however total I might say colours run on the softer facet however are buildable. I wouldn’t name the softness “sheer” because the pigment is fairly good, however a few of the shades do take some constructing. I swatched these with a reasonably heavy hand on prime 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 fantastic mixture of tan, brown and pale ivory shimmer.
Starlight 7 might be my favourite with the most effective mixture of peachy pink champagne, tan brown, impartial cream primer and a smooth 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 prime 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 need a staple eyeshadow palette you’ll be able to put on simply with out plenty of effort there are many nice choices with the brand new Cle De Peau eyeshadow launch. High quality is nice, coloration vary is gorgeous, heaps to like right here. Nonetheless if you’d like colours with excessive influence and ultra-rich pigment, I’ll say that I feel these could be 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 worth. I don’t know that I can name these well worth the splurge at $110+ every (though I splurged on 4). For the worth and related 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 development for refillable make-up whether or not it’s eyeshadow, basis, lipstick and so on. Having the refillable choice isn’t actually a giant promoting level to me. If these quads (compact and eyeshadow) have been priced on the refill worth I might be extra inclined to present them a extra glowing constructive evaluation. The value virtually makes me really feel just like the Natasha Denona or Pat McGrath Palettes are a steal.
