Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

by | Nov 12, 2019 | Beauty, Collaboration | 12 comments

It’s easy to get in a routine. My need for a new concealer led me back to the Cle de Peau Concealer and the discovery of some new products!

For years, I used the favorite concealer with a cult following from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go-to for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, those tired eye dark circles have returned!

I’m really not sure how I let this great product slip from my daily routine. With five shades, there is one perfect for every skin type. I’m using the shade Almond. The Cle de Peau Concealer easy to apply and provides great coverage with long lasting wear. I know many are a fan of the concealer brush but I prefer the control of hand application. Simply dab some on your ring finger and tap it where it needs to go.

Nordstrom is one of my favorite destinations to discover new beauty products. Their website is well organized and offers all the brands and information do you need to find just the right product.

I was happy to find a few new Cle de Peau products when I was shopping. I am a huge fan of cream blush.  This gorgeous shade is my new favorite. It’s the #4 or Perfect Peach but it’s a truly a mauve pink.  I love that cream blush stays put and is long-lasting. I found bonus is to use it as your lip color as well! It’s so easy to pop in your bag and go.

With the holidays upon us a little bit of shimmer is a must!  Actually, I use a highlighter for a glowing look almost daily.  This neutral pinks highlighter comes in a beautiful case and would also make a wonderful gift.  It will be on my little luxuries gift list.   Finally, this beautiful shimmery lip gloss is a new favorite.  I love a bit of iridescence and this has the perfect amount.  I love the pinky, nude color, too, of course!  This color is called Pink Aura.  I love the Warm Crystal shade as well. This would be a great stocking stuffer!

Stay tuned for a special project with an extremely talented friend you’ll definitely want to download for your holiday enjoyment! Subscribers will be the first to know…unless you follow me on Instagram and got a sneak peek a few weeks ago.

    Love your dress!
    So pretty to wear for the upcoming Holidays ❣️

    I’ve heard about this concealer…. fabulous reviews, so I am going to treat my self… and say bye bye to my dark circles 😊

    • Alicia

      Hi Laura!
      I hope you love it, too! The coverage is so good! Happy Treat Yourself Day!

  2. Ashley

    This is such a timely post! I have been thinking about investing in the Cle de Peau concealer. It is pricy but if it works as well as everyone says, it will be worth every penny. My hesitation now is that I am not sure which color would work best for my skintone. Obviously I know I can be matched in the store, but I HATE going to brick and mortar stores, especially the mall. Guess I will have to make a special trip in….

    • Alicia

      Hi Ashley!
      Nordstrom is great about returns so you shouldn’t have any issues. There is a color chart on the product page that looks pretty true to color. I would think the Almond or Beige would be good for you.

  3. Lamar

    Your post timing couldn’t have been better as I have been wanting to try a new concealer and there are so many choices out there. Will have to go check this one out.

    • Alicia

      Hi Lamar!
      I hop you love it, too! Let me know if you have questions. Thanks so much for reading!

    I may have to give this cult concealer a try! I’m wondering though if it will be too dry for my menopausal dry undereye? Love your content!

    • Alicia

      Hi Sherry!
      I do make sure to use a light eye cream in the morning but I’ve not noticed the being dry. You warm it a bit with your finger when you apply so it slips on just fine. Hope that helps!

  5. Melissa

    Will definitely check out the concealer the next time Im in Nordstrom. The blush and lip gloss look great too.

    I enjoy your blog very much.

    I’m always on the hunt for a good concealer. My last one tended to
    Cake in fine lines, and it looked awful. Thanks!

    I’m desperately in need of a new concealer and have heard others recommend this one! Guess it’s time to give it a try!

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!

Because I’ve worked from home for 24 years, either freelancing PR, event planning, volunteering or blogging, WFH or Work From Home attire is not new to me.  While there are days I stay in workout clothes, I get much accomplished when I get dressed for the day!
