This entry features the brand new cle de peau Eye Color Quad released with their SS2013 collection. The palette 209 Sapphire contains 4 shades, 3 of them are rich earthen hues, and rich deep Sapphire shade to create chic and elegant eyelooks.
The palette and the casing are sold separately - the case comes with two applicators, a mirror and a pouch. You pop the palette itself into the case, or you can also just pop the palettes into larger palettes that you already have.

Here's a closer look at the palette - cle de peau eyeshadows are very soft and contain skincare benefits to achieve delicate depth and refinement.
There is a slight overspray of the cle de peau logo on the eyeshadows - but they rub off after the first use and don't actually offer any color payoff during application.
A closer look at the colors:
And the overall look - I tried to recreate the look that the cle de peau makeup artist did on me during the makeover - though I did make the look way more intense myself. It is just much easier to slap on the colors on yourself than on someone else, in my opinion, simply because I know how much I need to make my eyes pop.
I love how the paler shimmering shades in this palette serve to accentuate the eyes, and contrast with the blue to really add dimension to the eyes.
Colors I used:
1. Apply the palest champage shade on the brow bone.
2. Apply the medium brown shade on the lids up to the crease.
3. Define the eyes with a dark blue eyepencil (I used Burberry Midnight Blue eye pencil), and go over this line with the Sapphire blue eyeshadow, I also smudge the line and make it look thicker.
4. Do the same for the blue on the lower lids, going in all the way to halfway of each eye.
5. On the inner corners, and just under the blue, dabbed the pale champage shade to give the eyes a pop, and more 3D looking.
Finish up with mascara and/or falsies.
Here's the overall look againg - it is something which I have been enjoying, a natural eyelook with a colored liner.
All products used:
Face - Rachel K CC Cream Fair, cle de peau Brightening Powder Foundation (NEW), cle de peau Concealer

Overall, a very sophisticated take on neutrals and colors. The palette really calls to mind the beautiful shades of the Mediterranean, very summery. Definitely enjoyed using the palette to create this look. Do check out the collection which is already available at all cle de peau counters. :)
