Clé de Peau Beauté A/W 2016 Preview & Swatches

Cle de peau autum fall 2016

Among the most highly requested swatches this season, Clé de Peau ranks no 1! I’ve had countless requests for swatches of the new Luminizing Face Enhancer as well as plenty inquiries about the new Radiant Liquid Rouge formula. It’s been a highly anticipated collection to say the least!

Although my collection roundup has been slow, I’ve finally put together a post! Entire collection’s swatched, accompanying loads of pics which I hope would prove useful.

Cle de Peau Liquid RougeThe new collection consists of one brand new product, the Radiant Liquid Rouge as well as shade additions to the eyeshadows quads, cream shadows & highlighters. I’d have to say the liquid lipsticks were my favourites. Absolutely divine in terms of formula and what can I say, i’m a sucker for good packaging. It’s a LOVE.

The collection draws inspiration from artist Tamara de Lempickas bold aesthetic, sensuous sophistication and expressive colour palette. Impossibly delicate, yet as fearlessly seductive as the new found liberation of this era.

Cle de peau golden age swatches

Golden Age is a stunning mix of bronze, peach, fiery orange and reddened brown. A breathtaking combination that’ll work through summer and fall!

Modern Era is a celebration of greens. A mix of Khaki, sage and forest green mixed in with a pewter grey/green.

Between the two I prefer the warm golden tones of Golden Age and also feel in terms of quality, this one’s slightly better. The only shade that didn’t perform as well was the last colour in the quad. The other three felt soft and buttery to the touch and swatched smooth with good pigmentation.

Modern Era though stunning in the pan contained 2 shades that underperformed. I found the second and the last slightly harder pressed and a tad dry. Both swatched with difficulty (the last more so).

Since i’m yet to try them on the eyes, hopefully Modern Era would work better applied with a brush. Let’s see! I shall update you when I do a look featuring this quad.

Edit – The two shadows perform perfectly well and blend seamlessly without any difficulty when tested out with brushes!

Next in line, the Cream Eye Colour Solos.

What you see here is Smoke Stream, one of the two cream shadows released with the collection. It’s a smoky black with specks of coloured shimmer. (For swatches of both shades scroll right down to the preview collage).

The formula of the cream shadows are more balm like than other cream shadows you find at this price point. It’s not the creamy whipped consistency you come to expect. If you are familiar with the Shiseido cream shadows, these are the more pigmented and refined counterpart! They work well as a subtle wash of colour or as eye shadow base.

On to the piece de resistance! The gorgeous Luminizing Face Enhancer, Almond!

Cle de peau Almond

Almond is a mix of pink, beige, taupe & ivory that applies as a pale champagne glow. It’s a neutral undertone which would work great even on the palest of complexions without looking too yellow.


Here’s a comparison of Almond among other Luminizing Face Enhancers in my collection. YES! I ‘needed’ them all.

Top row L-R : 11 Pastel, 16 Almond, 15 Golden Apricot

Bottom row L-R : 13 Sand Beige, 14 Delicate Pink

As you can see, the variances between the lighter shades are subtle and quite hard to capture. It’s one of those products you need to see in person to appreciate it’s beauty.

Here’s a macro I took in it’s pristine condition. The shimmer overspray still intact.

Saving the best for last, the Radiant Liquid Rouge! THE most luxurious liquid lipstick i’ve ever come across. The packaging is glass, with a beautiful black ombre which allows the colours to show through.

There’re 8 shades released. I’ve got 4 with me to swatch, but I also have swatched the entire collection at the preview, scroll down!

These glide on like butter and look amazing on the lips. I love how nourishing & comfortable they feel and truly represent the Clé de Peau aesthetic. Luxury in every sense!

Quick look at the complete shade range.

  1. Your photos and swatches are brilliant! I’m going to have to start saving up for some of the pieces in this collection; it looks beautiful 🙂 xx

  2. Love the photos and swatches. I might get Chenille. Did you have a chance to try the new radiant cream foundation?

    1. Hi,
      Thank you! Chenille is my favourite too.
      I’m such a sucker for nudes.
      And no, at the time I previewed these, (around 3 weeks ago) the foundation samples weren’t available for preview. Hopefully i’ll get to try them soon. Unfortunately Asia gets fewer shades than the US and my colour O40 is not available here..

  3. Thank you so much for the review and these swatches! I saw the liquid rouge advertised in this month’s Instyle magazine. These swatches helped me narrow down which one to get (12 Chenille). I’d love to get more but, don’t want to make my wallet cry LOL! My lips have gotten very dry lately (due to the heat in my area) so I love that it has a nourishing texture too. Thanks a million!

    1. Happy to hear you found the post useful! Chenille is my top pick too, I really love the shade against my medium skin tone. I actually thought it looked much deeper than I expected. But I still love it. The only true ‘nude’ in this collection.
