Given how impressed I am with Cle de Peau’s concealer, I thought you guys would need to see swatches sooner rather than later.
As I mentioned before, CdP’s famous concealer is a dense cream stick. I personally will need a little more experimentation to decide whether I prefer applying with fingers or with a fluffy brush, but you definitely don’t want to apply stick-to-face. I think you’ll also want some kind of primer or eye cream underneath it… Cle de Peau’s Eye Contour Essence (their $120 anti-dark-circles eye cream) was lovely, but there are a few other options I’d like to try.
I wore Ivory, but the Cle de Peau associates mentioned that if you’re fair with VERY dark circles, you may need Beige to cover them. They also said Honey was frequently a good match for mid- to darker ladies of Middle Eastern origin.
There’s actually a Neiman Marcus employee from Iran who said she wears Honey, but she wasn’t comfortable with my posting her picture (which I can certainly understand).
On my “Cle de Peau face” post, someone asked if I noticed any creasing — I didn’t, and I suspect it’s because the product is so pigmented that you use very little (meaning there’s nothing to crease).
Cle de Peau’s concealer is $70, but I’ve been assured that a stick lasts forever — and even Mama Sugar said it looked good.
