Clé de Peau Beauté Limited Edition Coffret...Opulence at Its Best

Above: The Clé de Peau Beauté Limited Edition Coffret is unspeakably beautiful.
It has been my experience that some beauty products with gorgeous packaging possess formulas that leave much to be desired. The Clé de Peau Beauté Limited Edition Coffret (currently available at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Cledepeaubeaute.com), however, renders this opinion entirely incorrect! With three eyeshadows, two blushes, a mascara and a lipstick--all nestled in a gloriously lovely compact--this coffret is the embodiment of perfect form and function of celestial proportions. 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches, images of the Coffret in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Here are the official details, courtesy of Neiman Marcus:


Limited Edition radiant palette of eye, cheek, and lip colors to evoke the astral aura of a moonlit sky.

Contains:
  • Eyeshadow: 3 limited-edition shades.
  • Cheek color: 2 limited-edition shades.
  • Extra rich lipstick: 1 limited-edition shade.
  • Perfect lash Mascara: Black.


Above: The packaging has an Art Deco vibe, no?
The stunning compact contains:
  • A complex heather purple eyeshadow a satin finish
  • A sparkling neutral taupe eyeshadow 
  • A shimmering pinky beige eyeshadow
  • A matte, baby pink blush
  • A matte, peachy apricot blush
  • Two eyeshadow applicators and a blush brush

Above: Three eyeshadows, two blushes, endless possibilities.
Like all Clé de Peau Beauté products I've tried thus far, I have found the eyeshadows (also comprehensively reviewed HERE) and blushes to be of optimum quality.  The shadows are satiny smooth and pigmented; they apply in a seamless fashion, are easy to blend and wear for hours without creasing or fading.  

I am so glad both blushes are soft, sophisticated, muted, matte hues.  I think this fortifies their classic nature and makes them wearable in all seasons...the peachy apricot shade can be used along the cheekbones to mimic a light contour and the pink hue is excellent for a flushed effect on the apples of the cheeks. Even though they lack obvious shimmer, they still allow the skin to look radiant and healthy--absolutely no powdery finish--and they also possess significant lasting power!

The Coffret also includes:
  • Perfect Lash Mascara (reviewed HERE): I love how long lasting this inky black formula is...once applied it doesn't smudge, flake or smear, even for those of us with watery and sensitive eyes.  Oh, and it makes the lashes look incredibly lush, full and long! 
  • Extra Rich Lipstick (also reviewed HERE and HERE): Silky, pigmented and long lasting with a supreme sense of hydration, this is luxury lip color at its best.  The classic red hue is neutral enough to be universally flattering and a single coat is all that is necessary for an opaque finish.

Bottom Line: If you are in the market for a truly opulent--yet entirely wearable--palette, the Clé de Peau Beauté (available at Neiman MarcusBergdorf Goodman and CledePeauBeaute.com), is a magnificent choice.  The shades are well-suited to a variety of complexions and their neutral hues ensure use that extends far beyond the holiday season, thereby making it an entirely justifiable investment. This is, without question, a gorgeously apropos gift for luxury beauty lovers of all ages and walks of life.

So many good things ahead including more foundation (!!), new beauty discoveries and a FOTD!

Enjoy the start of your weekend...what are YOU up to?

  6. I purchased the Coffret as soon as I saw it at Neiman Marcus and I love it. The palette is stunning and the Perfect Lash mascara has become my favorite (surpassing my previous favorite Armani Eyes to Kill). Thanks for your review!

  8. i wish I could get the eyeshadows only, as none of the blushes appeal to me, nor the lipstick, really. I always welcome a good mascara though, as I'm exahusting of being dissapointed at most of them all the time.

    1. That can be the trouble with palettes, Andrea...I think for most, however, they'll find the shades in this particular coffret are fairly versatile. The mascara is definitely worth a try...I love it!

  10. Gorgeous set but the lipstick is so not my style. You look great in it but I like your lips better when they are lighter.
