Everyone has their list of Holy Grail products that they swear are so amazing, and everyone will love. Holy Grail beauty products don’t come along every day in fact HG products are far and few between. Personally, I only have a handful or so of HG products in my collection but I’m always willing to add more if they live up to HG status.
For years, I heard everyone from Kim Kardashian to several YouTube beauty gurus swear up and down that the Clé de Peau Beauté concealer was the most amazing concealer ever.
So one day I got bold, hopped on to Nordstroms.com, hesitantly located the Clé de Peau Beauté concealer and less than ten minutes later my order was placed. My bank account was $70-plus lighter but when it comes to HG beauty products price doesn’t matter.
Days later the heavens opened, the sea parted, my hopefully HG concealer finally arrived.
I ripped the box open, pulled out the sleek and classically packaged Clé de Peau Beauté concealer and joyfully slathered it on my under eyes. That joy didn’t last long, my under eyes looked dry, cakey and hardly resembled Kim K’s perfectly concealed under eyes.
I was pissed to say the least. $70+ down the drain and all I got were dry, cakey under eyes. But I wasn’t about to give up I was determined to make it work.
First, off I remedied my dry under eye skin because that was my skin’s fault, not the concealer’s. Next, I applied the concealer directly my under eye skin, which help emulsify the concealer making it creamier and easier to blend. Finally, I used my finger to blend the concealer in, instead of using a brush. It was a whole new concealer at that point.
Both times I applied the Clé de Peau Beauté concealer it covered the heck out of my dark circles, but the residual dry, cakey look overshadowed its coverage power.
I’m proud to say Clé de Peau Beauté concealer is an HG product for me, and it’s worth the hefty price tag. A little goes a long way, and the little tube lasts a lot longer than you’d think. I’d say I get three to four months use out of one tube.
This concealer hides by hideous dark circles and helps me look well-rested and awake. Dark circles be damned as long as I have my Clé de Peau Beauté concealer.
What’s your Holy Grail concealer?
