i have already shown you the Eye Color Quad #201 Malachite and the Cheek Color Duo #4 but to round up the much belated reviews of my Clé de Peau Beauté order from summer 2011, today i bring to you their palette with the beautiful name "206".
in fact at a price of 55$ for the eyeshadow pans only (the compact case has to be bought separately and would set you back additional 25$), they could've given the ones from seasonal collections - for example this one came out in Spring 2011 - some fancy names also.
Clé de Peau Beauté can be bought at Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom or Saks.
i keep my CdP stuff in a Magnum Palette by Artdeco, it fits nicely and is a cheap but quality solution.
- a pearlescent cream colour with silver glitter
- a pale silver with silver glitter
- a copper shade with lots of gold flecks
- a satin beige with more loosely distributed chunkier gold glitter
overall the eyeshadows still show the same very silky and soft texture that i have described with the other palette i own, but i was disappointed with this one because it's a bit of chunky-glitter-overkill which causes fall out that is hard to remove. i think the cream, silver and beige shades especially would all be so much more beautiful without the glitter, they are soft and complex colours.
normally, i wouldn't wear this palette all alone, the colours are too light and too glittery for my taste to combine. but as i was taking it out to re-do the eyeshadow photos, the final result totally reminded me of NARS Ramatuelle Eyeshadow Trio which came out with their Summer 2012 collection and caused a big lemming on my side since many bloggers showed how amazing the combo of pale cream, silver and orange/peach can look (read great reviews of NARS Ramatuelle trio over at Café Makeup, Cute and Mundane and Pink Sith).
i really like how the end result turned out - of course there is some glitter fall out to remove - but otherwise the shades are easy to build up and blend, they also last well and in every aspect fulfill my yearning for NARS Ramatuelle. for the eyeshadow look i paired the palette with Max Factor Metallic Lilac eyeliner, which makes for a gorgeous contrast.
