The *Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Blush (also available at Clé de Peau Beauté, Neiman Marcus and Barney’s NY) features a revolutionary texture that simultaneously imparts glow and flush in a single swipe. The blush, which comes in four shades, is deliciously buildable, creamy and shimmer free; significantly, it lasts all day on my normal to combination skin. Subtle and sophisticated, this is a stunning cream blush execution!
#01 Cranberry: A “just pinched” rosy berry.
#02 Pale Fig: A soft natural pink.
#03 Persimmon: A bright coral glow.
#04 Perfect Peach: A lush and dusky neutral that even doubles as a light contour.
From L-R: Cranberry, Pale Fig, Persimmon and Perfect Peach.
What it is: A luxuriously moisturizing cream blush formulated with argan oil that leaves your cheeks beautifully flush with the perfect touch of sheer luminous color.
What it does: Its unique and comfortable texture feels sublimely smooth while spreading easily to create a soft contour, fitting smoothly and firmly against your skin. It’s formulated with a blend of three oils—low viscosity oil, medium viscosity oil and volatile oil—to deliver a smooth look to your cheeks for beautifully translucent color. An Illuminating Hydro-Wrap Complex delivers moisture to your skin for a soft, supple look and feel while light diffusing powder and pure chromatic pigment create a natural-looking finish with vivid color. It has a signature rose scent, too.
What it is: A pair of silky powder eyeshadows in captivating shades for dazzling eyes.
What it does: Formulated with luxurious argan oil, these semi-matte and soft shimmer hues are sized to fit into your Eye Color Quad (sold separately). Each contains an Illuminating Hydro-Wrap Complex to give skin a soft feel, while light diffusing powder creates a beautiful gradation of color to give your eyes an exquisite look. Each shade even features the brand’s signature rose scent.
*CdPB Radiance Stick Foundation in Ivory, Beige, Ocher and Mocha.
The final component of the Clé de Peau Beauté Spring/Summer Collection is the *Radiance Stick Foundation (also available at CdPB). Although I extensively swatched and reviewed the formula HERE, I wanted to include reference to it once again in this story. Excellent for weightless, buildable coverage (sheer to medium), it is a marvelous formula for “no makeup makeup” days and also works well as a mid-day touch up component atop other CdPB liquid foundation formulas.

Skincare Break…I recently have been experimenting with these three skincare innovations:
*Lancer Radiance Awakening Mask Intense: This overnight mask revitalizes skin while one sleeps; it’s perfect for moments when your canvas needs a boost and I am consistently impressed by how fresh and bright my skin is upon waking.
*Erasa EXP 30: I have been testing this anti-aging serum for nearly three weeks now and am fundamentally pleased with the way my skin has responded. Endorsed by supermodel Linda Evangelista (who claims she was compelled to stop using Botox once she tried Erasa), I will admit that I was skeptical that this peptide rich formula would visibly transform my skin. That being said, there is something very unique about Erasa; just two pumps both morning and night has made my skin smoother, softer, clearer, brighter and firmer, diminishing fine lines along the way. I will continue to test this and weigh back after six weeks!
*Cane + Austin Glycolic Treatment Eye Cream: Harnessing the power of glycolic acid, this gentle yet effective eye cream targets fine line and slack skin to lift and illuminate the delicate orbital area…and the clean ingredients are top notch.
As aforementioned, I participated on a panel of beauty experts for the Beauty Buzz event at Neiman Marcus Scottsdale yesterday and had such a lovely time talking all things beauty with Neiman Marcus VP of Beauty Kelly St. John, President of Kiehls Chris Salgardo, Clé de Peau Beauté Celebrity Makeup Artist Matthew Arbogast, Le Metier de Beaute Vice President of Sales Monica Gallegos and Neiman Marcus Beauty Buyer Sarah McCallum. Here are a few snapshots from the event…
