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.

Starting first with a colour makeup collection. Cle de Peau Color Makeup Collection 2019 is inspired by the Rococo style of the French 18th-century court. The new colour collection invokes the rebellious spirit and rococo style that flourished in the court of Versailles.
‘A modern woman who challenges old rules. Whose joie de vivre opens the door to dazzling radiance, sweeping aside the stiff with new feminine freedom. Fearlessly charming. Vibrantly photogenic. Demanding the light. Infusing lips with moisture to give a sheen and fullness from every angle. The key to a new vibrancy, turned.’
Cle de Peau Beaute Refined Lip Luminizer is a slim lipstick that imparts elegant colour and luxurious lustre to the lips, creating enriched luminous lips with sensual contours from various angles. The formula melts at body temperature, it gently embraces the lips, delivering a moment of bliss. The light focusing oil in the formula imparts sheer, an elegant colour which smooths and evens the lips surface to create the illusion of fuller lips.
The blend of oils makes it a beautiful texture that melts at body temperature and the creamy texture blends into the lips like a second skin. Refined Lip Luminizer is available in 12 permanent and 2 limited edition shades, each of which is inspired by the confections of the Versailles court.
The shades are bright, vibrant, sheer finish, and a sophisticated shine that captures light from all directions. The lips look and feel beautiful and comfortable with the hint of colour in its most natural, full, and vibrant look.

High luminance of the formula brings clarity and brightness to the entire face. The lipstick also helps improves dryness, roughness, scaling, cracking of the lips and leads to healthy-looking lips. The rich creamy texture of the lipstick is very hydra====moisturizing. The formula is long-lasting, amazing for this much hydrating lipstick, up to 4 on my lips without eating.

Cle de Peau Beaute Luminizing Face Enhancer is an exquisite highlighting powder that defines contours and illuminates the complexion. The beautiful play of light over the skin creates beauty, the light shifts with even the slightest change in facial expression. The formula illuminates the complexion from various angles, bringing the ideal amount of light to the facial expressions. The luxurious texture is not only comfortable to wear but also changes the feel of the skin.
The new shade – No 18 has notes of gentle, warm orange and sweet pink which in combination imparts natural healthiness while dazzle of gold and silver illuminates the skin. The smooth dewy formula creates the most beautiful natural illumination on the skin and also makes the skin look and feel so silky smooth.

The formula is pigmented and one swipe of colour gives a sheer to medium coverage depends on how heavy-handed you are.
The shades look same on the eyes as is in the little tub. The formula is powder finish means the finish is powdery, it feels moisturizing and seems to adhere very well to the skin, and because the surface to a silky powdery texture, the product layers well with powder eye shadow. It does not make the eyes feel dry or uncomfortable or heavy on the lids.
The formula does not crease as is very lightweight, the staying time of the shadow is great, for me it lasts all day and I remove it myself in the evening after back from work. The cream eye colour solo comes with a narrow applicator that fits in the crease of the eye and along the lower eyelids and an artificial bristle brush that fits closely against the eyelids. The new shades are: 308, 309
These are the colour launches from Cle de Peau Spring Summer 2019 collection, missing is the Radiant Cream to Powder Foundation which I will be sharing about in a separate post and link it here too.
Cle de Peau Enhancing Eye Contour Cream Supreme is the new miracle cream for the eye area which has the most delicate skin around it and which means it is the first to show the signs of ageing. Enhancing Eye Contour Cream Supreme combats myriad eye-area concerns, from visible depressed wrinkles to under-eye bags and drooping at the outer corners. It coddles the dry, delicate eye-area skin, delivering much-needed moisture for a luxurious smoothness and suppleness, and a dewy-fresh look, and delivers visible results, along with the sublime sensation of its sumptuous texture.
The formula is very hydrating and the hydration lasts long, skin appears re-energized making it look supple, youthful, and more even. The cream has to be applied after moisturizer as opposed to other eye creams used before moisturizer. It can be used day and night. And also as opposed to the eyes creams just to be used under and around the eye area and not on the eyelid area, this is perfectly fine to be used over the entire upper eyelid.
A really nice thing is that the Enhancing Eye Contour Cream Supreme has a complimentary Cle de Peau’s signature Platinum Massage Wand. The wand is coated with platinum and is custom-designed to gently soothe and treat the eye area while its many surfaces stimulate the skin. With continuous using this eye cream, I have noticed my very fine lines around the eyes have diminished to the extent that I have to find the lines. The eye cream sinks into the skin without feeling heavy or greasy. The mousse-like cream texture is great to apply and massage.
Apart from the Enhancing Eye Contour Cream Supreme, the Vitality Enhancing Eye Mask Supreme is an eye mask that combats eye-area concerns, from dullness and dryness feeling to the feeling of eye fatigue. It is a great pick me up before an event, before an important meeting, or for the weekend ritual. The mask generously covers the entire eye area for targetted efficacy, with a feeling of comfort. It has to be worn for 10 minutes during the day and it addresses the eye-area concerns and feeling of fatigue while refreshing and energizing the entire eye area. I noticed a more youthful, plump, and bright eye area after using this mask. After removing the mask, I gently massage in the remaining essence around the eye area.
Cle de Peau Beaute Spring Summer 2019 Collection has definitely the products that are suited and will be liked by most, worth checking out for colour and skincare. Cle de Peau Beaute products are available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus.
Cle de Peau Beaute Essential Refining Essence is a new launch for spring/summer 2019, or I should ideally say it is reformulated new version with a new ingredient to address the cause of visible pores. I have been using Cle de Peau Beaute Essential Refining Essence in my skincare routine since last few weeks already.
Essence, if you are not yet aware, is an effective multi-benefit skincare step that is applied after cleansing and balancing the skin and applying targeted serums, before the emulsion or moisturizer. This water-like facial essence is actually a concentrated, gently astringent serum that works to refine and hydrate skin while absorbing excess oil. Unlike most other serums, the essence is applied with a gentle patting motion, which allows this dynamic product to be pushed into the skin and diminish visible pores, even after other serums have been applied. This step has been game-changing in my skincare routine.
Cle de Peau Beaute Essential Refining Essence is a fresh cooling serum that gives a feeling of unclogged pores and reduces surface roughness upon application. It leaves skin thoroughly refined and beautifully matte, with a texture that is exquisitely smooth and radiant.
I have been using this essence since the last few weeks, it has a watery smooth texture. The purple water applies nicely onto the skin and absorbs quickly giving a quick bounce and mattifying effect to the skin instantly and then after few uses I have already noticed minimal breakouts with a noticeable difference in the pore size. Apart from the benefits to my problem skin, it also keeps my skin clear, smooth, my oily areas on the face are in control. It feels refreshingly cool on the skin.
Another thing I have not noticed is that while being mattifying it does not dry out my skin even a little. I tried pressing it into my skin with hands, it works but I prefer using a cotton pad to pat it into the skin. I shake the bottle well to have the purple powder sitting on the bottom of the bottle to mix up as it is a bi-phase formula, then I use it after cleansing, toning and balancing my skin – and before the emulsion or moisturizer. The essence has a fresh, elegant fragrance of natural rose and rare orchid.
Cle de Peau Beaute Essential Refining Essence is definitely a keeper for my skin and is worth checking out. Cle de Peau Beaute products are available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus.
