My Thoughts on the Clé de Peau Concealer

My Thoughts on the Clé de Peau Concealer

I don't know how I ended up here, but here I am. I have a way too expensive concealer absolutely rocking my world. I hate it but love it at the same time.

My Thoughts on the Clé de Peau Concealer


In both photos above, I am wearing the Clé de Peau concealer on the left and nothing on the right.

I've heard mumblings over the past year or two about the cult-favorite concealer, but any time I went to purchase, I was like wtf at the price. $73 is ABSURD, so I kept diverting my eyes thinking "there is no way a concealer can be that good."

I held strong until I got a GC, a $20 note from Nordstrom, and it was a 3x point day. I couldn't think of a thing I wanted or needed, and as I was browsing around, the concealer popped up. Was this my time? My excuse? Yes. I purchased the ivory shade and thought if nothing else, I can return it.

The one thing I was wary about was that it would be too thick since it's a cream stick. I'm more of a liquid girl myself, and live and breathe by Tarte Shape Tape (for full coverage looks) and Nars Creamy concealer (for concealer-only days). But I was pleasantly surprised by how well this goes on and then sinks into your skin.

My favorite way to apply (a little goes a LONG way) is to warm it up on my ring finger, then apply to my under eyes. 

I found that if I apply straight to my face, it pulls at my skin. A little warm-up on the finger was the better way to go.

In terms of applying to my eyes, I try to focus on the dark areas first and then take whatever is leftover to the other parts of my eye. A little bit on your finger goes far, so I only dip once and then press in with my fingers.

From there I let it be! At first, it does look a little thick, but I promise that in five minutes it will heat up, sink into your skin, and then (wait for the best part) IT DOES NOT MOVE ALL DAY. Usually, I set my concealer to help it stay in place and not crease, but with this (and the life I live right now) I'm not doing that. To my surprise (or not, because of the price tag) it did not budge. It kept my under eyes looking bright and concealed ALL DAY LONG. I was shook. It was that good. 

So while I hate how much it costs, it has lived up to the hype so far. 

It's like my thoughts on the Dyson Airwrap: if it's something you're able to afford, do it. But if not, don't worry about it. It's a "nice to have" not a "need." It's worth the price you pay, but not worth going out of your way to get it. So I'll try to keep an eye out for any future sales and deals to come our way!
