Being a big fan of Cle de Peau eyeshadows and lipsticks, I could not miss The Enchanted lake Collection! First come two lipsticks that got my attention: Cle de Peau cashmere lipstick 514 Enamoured and Cle de Peau lipstick 515 Impassioned.
The packaging is five stars! Vintage looking paper boxes are very attractive. The white and black swan theme is an allegory of a woman in two different moods – light everyday look or evening dramatic!
Cle de Peau cashmere lipstick 514 Enamoured is a peach pink shade without shimmer. Cle de Peau has an impeccable reputation for lipsticks’ quality, so I was very excited to discover this nude, everyday shade!
The color is perfect: it looks fresh, young on me and it makes my teeth look whiter. But I didn’t like the cashmere effect. First of all, cashmere or matte lipsticks are more drying. That’s what happened with Cle de Peau cashmere lipstick 514 Enamoured. Despite the lip balm applied prior to cashmere lipstick, the 514 Enamoured texture wasn’t smooth or comfortable to wear. Then, Cle de Peau cashmere lipstick 514 Enamoured turned out to be less lip plumping than regular Cle de Peau lipsticks.
Please have a look at these swatches: Cle de Peau cashmere lipstick 514 Enamoured (on the left) and Cle de Peau lipstick 515 Impassioned (on the right).
In my opinion, a $65 lipstick should be perfect. Cle de Peau cashmere lipstick 514 Enamoured is an amazing shade, but I prefer the classic Cle de Peau texture.
Cle de Peau lipstick 515 Impassioned looked like a dark red at Nordstrom.com When I opened it, 515 Impassioned turned out to be a dark violet-red without shimmer. The shade was so intriguing that I applied it right away. I even forgot to take the pictures before doing so!
The straight of the tube application was a mess, so I removed 515 Impassioned and applied it with a brush. Contrary to 514 Enamoured, Cle de Peau lipstick 515 Impassioned is extremely lip plumping! Watch out when you apply it!
Have a look at this juicy texture! And it feels heavingly on the lips! I guess, because of the natural oils that Cle de Peau lipsticks contain.
Cle de Peau lipstick 515 Impassioned is a great shade, but I’m concerned about the complicated application. I don’t want a $65 lipstick to sit in my closet without being used. Also, this type of shade makes me look older.
Ideally, I would love to have the shade 514 Enamoured made with the 515 Impassioned texture! Dear Cle de Peau makeup designers, you can call this new shade 516 Improved!
