The Clé de Peau Beauté Enchanted Lake Collection
The opulent and limited-edition Clé de Peau Beauté Enchanted Lake Collection (also available at Nordstrom) has arrived, just in time for the holiday season ahead. The collection features a majestic and whimsical frozen lake motif that effortlessly balances style with substance. 
In addition to a sunlit and swatch-heavy look at the Enchanted Lake Collection, I am excited to give you a look at beautiful new skin and haircare launches from Augustinus Bader, Serucell and Sisley-Paris.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of everyone in action as well as the Bottom Line…

The resplendent packaging of the Clé de Peau Beauté Enchanted Lake Collection
Rife with elements reminiscent of an edgy and modern swan lake tale, the Clé de Peau Beauté Enchanted Lake Collection (also available at Nordstrom) packaging is art embodied. Icy ivory, iridescent blue and rich midnight indigo tones interplay to create elegant winter energy that beckons to be embraced. 
Destined to be treasured. 
The *Clé de Peau Beauté The Serum Limited Edition

The opulent *Clé de Peau Beauté The Serum Limited Edition (also available at Nordstrom) comes in a luminous milky-meets-mother of pearl glass bottle that will bring grace and class to any vanity. More importantly, the serum within works to hydrate, brighten and refine skin while increasing the efficacy and performance of all future skincare steps. 
The *Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Luminizing Face Enhancer
A veritable geometric feat, the*Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Luminizing Face Enhancer (also available at Nordstrom) features a harmony of pastel shades that, when combined, yield an incandescent, lit-from within glow. This pearly platinum shade is soft and illuminating for all complexions…I love focusing application on the high points of the face (as shown in the images at the end of this post) for maximum radiance.

The *Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Eye Color Quad
For eyes, the *Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Eye Color Quad (also available at Nordstrom) features four cool hues that subtlety dazzle eyes with a satin finish bath of light. The silver, pale aqua blue, tender lavender and rich mulberry purple blend with ease, creating a myriad of looks that work for both day and night.

In terms of lips, there are two lipstick shades–housed in radiant ivory and gold and lush indigo and black cases–that offer something apropos for lighter and darker lip color lovers alike. 

The *Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Lipstick Cashmere in Enamored (also available at Nordstrom and discussed HERE) is an apricot pink with a creamy satin finish that I adore. This shade is a must for those (like me!) that gravitate toward pinky peach nude hues…it’s, as the name implies, easy to fall in love with and has fast become an object of affection for this light lip devotee.  

When drama is de rigueur, the aubergine red *Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Lipstick (also available at Nordstrom) instantly brightens the face, for a French girl vibe that is equal parts effortless and mysterious. This vibrant tone has tremendous color payoff and a timeless flushed tone that delivers mood and intensity in a single pass.

The *Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Lipstick Mini Kit

Perhaps my most favorite giftable option in the collection, the *Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Lipstick Mini Kit is rife with five shades of CdPB lip color in universally flattering shades and textures including the peachy nude Peach Stone, my lips but better Camellia, classic red Legend, pinky nude Silk Thread and and cool fuchsia red Entrapment. The white and indigo cases are emblazoned with golden feathers…intricate and lovely, you’ll have trouble giving these aways!

The *Clé de Peau Beauté Long Lasting Hydrating Veil Primer SPF 21
Finally, though technically not a part of the holiday collection, this gorgeous formula otherwise known as the *Clé de Peau Beauté Long Lasting Hydrating Veil Primer SPF 21 (also available at Nordstrom) is new to me. The lightweight, fluid primer boasts SPF 21 protection and a smoothing texture that blurs fine lines and pores, creating the smoothest canvas possible for the makeup to come. It’s a sophisticated indulgence that invites subsequent products applied to perform at their best. 
The complete face.

Style notes.

// STYLE NOTES //

  • Reformation Hope Cardigan: Ahh, this short sleeved cardigan was love at first sight…and, it’s on sale. It’s only available in a size L and that’s what I am wearing here. Even though I usually wear a medium, I find that this roomy cut is totally doable and even welcomed for a fresh take on a traditional sweater style. 
  • Faux Leather Pants: I picked these up earlier this year and am finally enjoying them again now that the temperatures have dropped slightly. The loose cut and casual pleats make them easy to dress up or down and the faux leather feels a touch more polished than jeans. 
  • *Millie Mule (also reviewed HERE): I am still wearing these mules non-stop. Comfortable, mood-lifting and great with pants and shorts alike, they are my favorite transitional piece of the season thus far.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this look at the ethereally beautiful limited-edition Clé de Peau Beauté Enchanted Lake Collection as well as new launches from Augustinus Bader, Serucell and Sisley-Paris and would love to know what caught your eye…do tell! 

Good things ahead, including a fresh video tutorial, a budget-friendly beauty story and a host of new product procurements…cannot wait to share.
Also, in case you missed it, check out my interview with Serucell as a part of the Serucell Societé…it takes a deep dive into my skincare, makeup and aging philosophy with lots of heartfelt conversation along the way.  
Stay strong, seek wisdom and much love,
