Cle de Peau Beaute - Spring & Summer 2007 Color Collection.

I love makeup. I love luxurious makeup. Who doesn't?

One of the most luxurious makeup lines is that of Cle de Peau Beaute. All of the Cle de Peau products that I have seen or used, are downright amazing. And the new Spring 7 Summer Color Collection lives up to this, in it's entirety.

The entire shadow collection captures the essence of light. When applied, the look is silky and flawless. All of the Eye Color Quad shadows are formulated with Argan Tree Oil, which aids in easy application while keeping the texture light and making it incredibly long lasting. The quads each have a shadow to be used for a liner, contour, accent color, and high lighter. The range of colors allow for layers with ease, and range from subtle to intense. The Eye Color Quads are available in #10 - Mystic Beam, #11 - Flower Garden and #12 - Nordic Sea.

Rouge a Levres / Lipstick ($55)
There are 5 new shades available, each  that will "kiss" the lips with rich, long-lasting, lustrous color. The collection is an entire range of pinks, from light and fresh to full of pink color. All of the lipsticks have a Hydro-Wrap Complex, which keeps lips incredible smooth and full with moisture. The shades available are #18 - a vivid fuchsia, #19 - a light rose kissed with light, #20 - a  strawberry pink, #21 - a  flower red with undertones of pink, and #22 - a seashell like peachy pink. I have been wearing #22 and have never received so many compliments about this beautiful shade.

Brilliant a Levres / Lip Gloss ($47)
In 3 new shades, all of the lip glosses in the collection offer a true gloss shine with the staying power of a lipstick. The end result is a non-sticky, yet very long-lasting sheen. The shades include #10 - a desert rose, #11, a crystal pink, and #12, a shiny silver pearl.

Touche Sublime / Brilliant Enhancer ($60)
This is a brand new product, which is an almost magical, liquid high lighter. This enhancer helps to perfect the complexion giving skin a soft, highlighted translucency. It is so light and airy, like something I have never used before. It is truly silky and delicate, and makes make skin look luminous. Like lit from within.

Available in 3 easy to match shades, there is one perfect for every skin tone. They are easy to apply and smudge resistant.

The catridge filled eye liner pencil makes it easy to precisely apply it with a smooth, soft touch. Available in 3 long lasting shades.

Stylo Levres / Lip Liner Pencil ($25 for cartridge, $30 for holder)
These come in 3 new shades to compliment the new pink lipstick collection. These lip liners are easy to use by clearly defining the lip contour with a smooth hand.

Mascara Volume / Volume Mascara ($45)
An exquisite mascara that gives lashes very full lashes while holding a curl. The formula is very advanced to provide lashes rich conditioning and moisturizing benefits. This mascara is available in 3 shades.

Mascara Longueur Ideale / Lengthening Mascara ($45)
For the ultimate long lasehs, this mascara not only lengthens, but thickens as it helps to keep the curl. The clump - free formula glides on with just a single swipe of the brush. Also available in 3 shades.
