Its almost been two months into the new year and I am still in love with the season, one reason being the beautiful fall and winter makeup along with some amazing skincare products that I can use during the colder months. I have been a fan of the skincare products I used from Clé de Peau Beauté till now which I wrote about in here.  Clé de Peau Beauté is a luxury brand under the Shiseido group and these are some of the lipsticks from their A/W 2017 collection which I am so excited to share with you all today, they are called the Rouge À Lèvres Lipstick.

Now coming to my thoughts about this lipstick and formula. The packaging is heavyweight and feels very luxurious, the sparkly blue surface with the hint of gold on the top and the brand logo on the side makes it classic. The petal-shaped bullet looks very delicate as well as unique, the touches the lips while applying in the most beautiful way. The formula is hydrating and plush, leaves moisture and soft shine on the lips. It has a semi-opaque pigmentation and flattering cream finish which looks timeless as well as modern.

The lasting power of the lipstick is good too, I get 3-4 hours of comfortable hydrating wear without any dryness on my lips. As the formula is creamy and soft, it does last lesser time if you are eating or drinking with this lipstick on but I do not mind touch-ups when the formula and the shade are so good.
