Cle De Peau Fall 2013 Eyeshadow #120

Impulse purchases...

I don't make them often. I'm one of those consumers that likes to mull over a product, read reviews, see numerous swatches before I take the plunge but every now and then it's fun to step out and try something new.

Case in point - I had never seen, touched or read about Cle De Peau eyeshadows before. I was browsing online and found gorgeous images from their fall 2013 collection on the Saks Fifth Avenue website and had the wild idea of buying one of the shadows. There are three eyeshadows in the Fall 2013 collection, they are limited edition, and they are creatively named #118, #119 and #120. There were no swatches online anywhere but #120 piqued my interest for some reason and I ordered it.

The packaging is beautiful and the colour is unique to my collection. I am so happy that I got it because I have been incorporating it in my eyeshadow look every single day this month.

It's a gorgeous midtone rosy shade with a subtle shimmer that can be buffed away or can be intensified on the lid. The texture of the shadow is super smooth and buttery. No fall out and blends with ease. My favourite way of applying it has just been with a more dense crease brush (like a MAC 217 or the Sephora crease brush) and going to town all over the lid and using a smokier shade along the lash line/outer corner or I have been using this as a crease colour with taupes and cool-toned browns. It's so easy to work with, I can't stop won't stop wearing it! Here is is in all its glory:

I don't know about you, but I'm loving the vampy reddish eyeshadows lately. Seems so perfect for the colder months. What eye look have you been loving lately?
