QUICK REVIEW: There’s a reason why this concealer stick is worth $70 and consistently wins beauty awards!
(04/23/2011): Concealers are one of the few products I don’t like to shop for – but always buy because I’m always looking for something to cover my new under eye circles and a prominent sun spot on my cheek (a small price to pay for the fun I had during my pre-kids surfer girl years). Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer has reached cult status and has received multiple awards from beauty magazines for its smooth reliable coverage.
The original formula with the ridged navy and gold packaging is less creamy than the new version – but is much more effective at covering imperfections without disappearing while blending. Ochre has a distinct yellow undertone that made waste of any red areas, especially around the nose and chin. Granted, it was a bid dry to use under the eye area, but a tiny dab of eye cream mixed in eliminated that issue. One stick lasts an eternity. I’ve been consistently using mine for at least 5 years – which is longer than you should use a concealer, but it hasn’t changed color, scent or consistency and I am not throwing a $70 product away if its still good! Its not expired milk! LOL!
Cle de Peau’s newest version, which comes in a much sleeker shiny deep navy package, has a creamier consistency and slightly more neutral shade range. Honey, a deeper golden tan shade with dominant peach base for tan to deep skin tones was also added to the 3 color collection: Ivory – a netural toned pale beige for light skin tones, Beige – a neutral beige shade for light to medium skin tones, Ochre – a yellow based tan for medium, tan and olive skin tones. I use Honey under my eye area and have mixed it with Ochre to match my skin tone when I get a bit tan during the Summer.
If you are looking for a concealer with nearly perfect coverage and a smooth finish, Cle de Peau Concealer is a good investment. I’ve tried many concealers from drugstore brands to the most pricey – and I always go back to this one because I know it will get the job done.
