I’ve gotten a number of requests for swatches of very high end brands lately, and though I always aim to please, I feel you should know that I am swatching these products at great personal risk. Why? Because I always end up falling in love with the products I swatch — and for now, I will have to love these from afar.
Cle de Peau’s Extra Silky Lipsticks are like lipstick and gloss in one. They contain Moroccan oil for hydration and shine, and they have a very lightweight feel with a lot of “slip.” The shades range from sheer to semi-sheer, and they can be worn alone or over lipstick. By themselves they’re not the longest wearing lip products; they probably last longer over another lipstick.
Extra Silky Lipsticks are $52 each, packaged in slender “click tube” pens (similar to Dior’s Serum de Rouge).
Shades 127 and 128 are the newest additions to the lineup; any missing numbers are discontinued shades. Actually, 113 is also discontinued, but my counter still had a tester, so I swatched it.
I tried on 105 and it seemed like that perfect warm pink that everybody’s looking for. I did not notice a scent.
