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.
The 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.
2 Eye Colour Quads – 315 Modern Era, 316 Golden Age
2 Cream Eye Colour Solo – 306 Blue Notes, 307 Smoke Stream
8 Radiant Liquid Rouge
1 Luminizing Face Enhancer – 16 Almond
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!
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.
Heading onto some more pics taken at the Clé de Peau A/W preview! I got to swatch everything over a cosy lunch with the lovely girls of Clé de Peau Beauté Singapore. It was makeup HEAVEN!
