If you live in or are visiting sunny, summer-all-year-round Malaysia, it’s important to load up on skincare that’s tailored towards sun protection. At the Clé de Peau Beauté Spring/Summer Radiance 2017 preview some time ago, we were introduced to the brand’s range of skincare and makeup collections for the season — focusing on radiance through sun-skincare, brightening, complexion and colour makeup. Here’s a quick look at some of the skincare and makeup items that caught our eye.
UV Protective cream (tinted and un-tinted)
If you’re not already using any sun-skincare, you’ll want to add this to your daily routine pronto. This anti-aging sun-skincare comes in a tinted version for the face and an un-tinted version for the face and body, with SPF 50+ PA++++. The tinted version comes in four shades — pink, ivory, ocher and dark. Deeply nourishing, this high-performance cream protects against UV rays, evens skin tone, smooths fine lines and minimises imperfections while providing a luminous look and velvety-smooth feel.
UV Protective Emulsion SPF 50+ PA++++
For a sun-skincare with more hydration, try the UV protective emulsion SPF 50+ PA++++. The emulsion is also anti-aging and acts as a protective shield for the body, offering immediate hydration and long-term skincare benefits through continued use. Creating a highly water- and perspiration-resistant sheet for warm temperatures and high humidity, this is great for us going through Malaysian weather. It also comes in a SPF 30 PA+++ version if you prefer.
Radiant stick foundation SPF 17 PA++
Moving on to foundation, the collection features a Radiant stick foundation with SPF 17 PA++. Creamy, soft and gentle, look forward to a naturally translucent finish and feel similar to that of a beauty essence. Microscopic water particles are infused into the foundation to achieve an exquisite sensation of the foundation melting into the skin.
Concentrated brightening serum
If it’s not in your agenda to get a little more tanned, take a look at the Clé de Peau Beauté Concentrated brightening serum. There’s one for the face, and another for the body, depending on your target areas. Aiming to refine the skin from within, the brightening serum imparts a diamond-like radiance while targeting dark spots and dullness with its anti-spot technology.
Eye colour duo
Lucia Pieroni, Makeup Creative Director of Clé de Peau Beauté draws inspiration from the rugged coastline of Cornwall, England for the Spring/ Summer 2017 makeup collection. The untouched elements of nature — subtle hues of lilac summer clouds rolling over the Atlantic Ocean, deep shades of blue water, warm pink seashells held up to light, deep brown earth — are all muses for the new eye colour duo palettes in the collection. There are six palettes in total — Grounded (brown earth), Calm (pink and pearl), Harmony (green), Purity (lilac and soft white), Serenity (blue and taupe) and Balance (grey and silver).
Enriched lip luminiser
Finish off your summer look with some fun colours from the Enriched lip luminisers in the collection. The Enriched lip luminisers promote an instant moisture when applied and leaves lips with a luxuriously glossy impression with a brilliant radiance and rich colour. Choose from three shades — 237 Ice Honey, 238 Lolly Pop or 239 Raspberry Snapple — or just take them all.
The Clé de Peau Beauté Spring/ Summer Radiance 2017 collection is available at Isetan KLCC, Parkson Pavilion and Parkson Gurney Plaza.
