Cle de Peau Beaute Holiday 2019 called Kimono de Rêve Collection or Kimono Dream Collection is a limited edition collection inspired by the art form of traditional Japanese dress – the kimono. For the 2019 holiday season, Clé de Peau Beauté has collaborated with master kimono-maker, Kyoto Tachibana, renowned for the use of the Surigata-Yuzen* method of dyeing colours and stencilled motifs onto a single sheet of silk.
The kimono, made exclusively for Clé de Peau Beauté, sparking products in shades that express the qualities hidden inside every woman: passion, strength, charm and gentleness. Inside each product’s packaging, a Bijin-Ga: a painting of a woman wearing one of the kimono. Artist Ayana Otake’s interpretation of Bijin-Ga – Japanese paintings of women that depict their inner and outer beauty. In harmony with the seasons. Expressing an emotion. Capturing an aspect of her inner self. Deep in the dream, each kimono represents.
Kimono Dream collection comprises of best-selling Clé de Peau Beauté products reimagined for the holiday season in limited edition packaging. Focusing on inner beauty, the collection is designed to express the many facets of a modern woman’s radiance. The packaging is inspired by tatou*, each item in the collection is presented in a box with intricate folds. When opened, it reveals a depiction of the kimono inside. Symbolic of the beauty within. Echoing the folds and layering of the kimono itself, each box is surrounded by a sleeve with the pattern of an obi sash**. Each package, representative of extraordinary craftsmanship of Japanese traditional dress.
Below are the products in the Holiday 2019 Collection:
The Lip Color – Lipstick in limited edition shade 511 Silk Passion and Lipstick Cashmere in 512 Red Passion – I love the formula of both the lipsticks – nourishing, pigmented, and longevity is great.
The eyeshadow – Limited edition Eye Color Quad with three shades of shadow and a deep black eyeliner. It has a beautiful formula that blends nicely, and no fallout noticed with the formula.

A good skincare routine requires some important essential products which include a cleanser, exfoliant, day cream with SPF and night cream but sometimes the skin requires a little extra help to tackle specific skincare concerns such as dehydration, pores, blemishes, reducing and preventing further signs of ageing, and pigmentation spots – this is where a booster, serum, and essence comes into play. The booster, serum, and essence are not same but different from each other, they contain high concentrations of ingredients specifically developed to provide a targeted solution for specific skin concerns.
Boosters contain a high concentration of one crucial ingredient for the skin plus a combination of other active ingredients. Boosters have a lightweight texture making them easy to combine with the other products in the skincare routine. They can also be applied directly to the skin or mixed with night cream and serum. And of course booster is not a replacement for the day or night moisturizer. I have been using two boosters in my skincare routine which I am sharing below.
Cryo ATP Sports Booster mimics the effects of extreme cold on the skin, this booster contains natural cellular energy (ATP) to encourage more oxygen for optimized cell function. Just a few drops of this highly-charged formula will reignite lax skin, leaving it tightened, toned, and refined for a reinvigorated complexion. Perfect for use post-workout, this booster will prolong freshness for enlivened and vibrant skin.
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP): Energy in its pure form, this key multifunctional nucleotide declines as aging advances with skin’s appearance diminishing due to this. Topical ATP can improve the tightness and tone of the complexion.
Riboxyl™: A pure ribose which stimulates the synthesis of ATP and improves cell metabolic activity, stimulation of elastin synthesis, and collagen and hyaluronic acid production.
Neurobiox™: A bio-surface extracted from yarrow that brightens, retexturises and accelerates epidermal renewal.
Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Booster increases moisture levels by delivering a concentrated dose of hydrating ingredients deep into the skin. Formulated with high levels of hyaluronic acid, the booster combats both dryness and dehydration leaving skin soft and supple.
Hyaluronic Acid enhances hydration.
Promotes soft and supple skin.
Combats dryness and dehydration.
Meso Infusion Leave On Overnight Mask is a wear-anywhere mask takes inspiration from in-clinic mesotherapy to provide a moisture-boosting, complexion-plumping treatment. The mask melts into skin leaving no residue – for the ultimate day-long restoration.
Can be worn while you sleep.
Formula works intelligently with the skin cell renewal cycle to efficiently restore skin.
Transformative complex plumps, hydrates, and volumises.
Use 1-2 times a week to supplement your regular skincare regime. Cleanse the face thoroughly, apply a light, even layer, and allow to sink in. If used as part of a 111SKIN regime, use in combination with Meso Infusion Day Defence Hydration Mask.
111Skin is available at 111Skin.com*Press samples
Decorte makeup has been a part of my makeup routine in the past and I am so glad to have the new launches from the brand back on my vanity. I have used the matte and gloss formula in the past, reviewed here. I am sharing the newest addition to the lip range of Decorte Cosmetics – The Rouge Velvet Lipstick.
The Rouge Velvet Lipstick has a texture in which silk-like cream is packed with super-pigmented lip colour to deliver a long-lasting velvet finish. The lipstick is formulated with Decorté Smooth-Touch Oil, colour, and treatment adhere to lips, ensuring long-term conditioning without sacrificing colour performance.
The formula feels lush and moist on the lips with a single application that results in a matte finish. The lipsticks are pigmented, once swipe gives a vibrant colour to the lips. The formula is silky soft and feels very lightweight once applied. The ingredients work well to give high moisturizing effects and hence the moist lips.
