Clé de Peau Beauté is launching on Sephora’s web store! So if you need to stock up on your favourite concealer, you can do so while earning your Sephora points. If you’re new to the brand, here are my top three suggestions on what to buy — starting with the concealer, of course.
CONCEALER SPF 25
If there’s one product to buy from this luxury Japanese beauty brand, it’s the stick concealer. It’s earned itself cult status in the world of makeup; Beauty Editors and celebrities have touted this as the best concealer in the world, and for good reason — it covers everything. It’s a cream texture that’s not too thick, yet not too sheer, and comes in a convenient stick format. It does a good job covering up blemishes (just dot a small amount in the centre of a pimple, then pat in and blend out around the edges), it reduces the appearance of dark circles (just pat on with fingers or a soft concealer brush), and it evens out pigmentation like sun spots and darkened acne marks. It also stays on, doesn’t crease or feel dry on the skin, and looks amazingly natural. The inclusion of SPF 25 is helpful too.
Some fans love this product so much, they buy several shades (there are 6 in total) and use them for highlighting and contouring.
CORRECTING CREAM VEIL
All of Clé de Peau Beauté’s makeup primers are excellent and you can’t go wrong with any of them. The one I’m currently using is the Correcting Cream Veil, which has a brightening and an instant blurring effect on the skin (it minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines). It’s a beige-coloured cream that melts into skin upon contact, becoming colourless and invisible. I like that the product’s texture is rich and not drippy; this makes application clean and mess-free. On the skin, it creates a smooth, even finish that makes applying makeup a dream; foundation glides on beautifully and stays on the entire day. There’s also SPF 25 PA++.
CLARIFYING CLEANSING FOAM
If you’re looking to try skincare from this brand, start with one of their face washes — you’ll see a difference with your complexion almost instantly. My husband absolutely loves this particular Clarifying Cleansing Foam; he says it clears up his skin (less breakouts) and makes it look more “awake” (it removes excess oil and surface impurities that cause dullness and clogged pores). The texture comes out a velvety cream, and transforms into a delicate lather with some water. After rinsing the face, the skin feels extremely comfortable (not tight or stripped of moisture).
Good to know: Clé de Peau Beauté is launching a whole new range of face cleansers and they’ll be available on Sephora.sg in August, so look out for them!
