This was created by Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore for Clé de Peau Beauté
In a day and age when there are literally millions of skincare creams and makeup items available on the market, the scenario of half-used bottles and tubes accumulating on the vanity is unfortunately something that most of us can relate to. And even for those lucky enough to get an insider look on the latest product launches—me, included—there are only a handful of products that we keep going back to over and over again. Case in point: Clé de Peau Beauté’s Concealer.
A Cut Above The Rest
I still remember the first time I got my hands on one, almost six years ago. From the moment I swatched it on the back of my hand, I knew it was nothing like the other concealers I’d used prior to this. Its creamy texture glided over my skin so smoothly and made every skin imperfection I had (from under eye circles, dark spots and blemishes) virtually undetectable.

Every bit deserving of its cult status that it has achieved over the years, Clé de Peau Beauté’s Concealer can be found in beauty insiders’ stash and makeup maestros’ kits all over the world. Furthermore, it is also known for its high coverage, long-lasting wear and ultra-blendable formula, which explains why it has remained one of the brand’s best-sellers since it was first launched.
New & Improved
So when it was announced that the luxury brand is going to be reformulating it’s legendary Concealer, I was honestly surprised and intrigued at how this do-it-all concealer can be made even better. And as it turns out, the reinvented formula packs the same high coverage to deliver a flawless complexion, promises an even lighter texture and also offers added skincare benefits to protect skin against UV rays and oxidation damage. Thanks to the New Thin Fit Layer Formula (which consists of an optimal blend of Smoothing & Adhering Oil and Speedy Dry Oil), the Concealer forms a thin and even layer for full coverage and excellent adherence on the skin so it virtually feels weightless.

Plus, it is now fortified with Green Tea Extract, a powerful antioxidant which fends off free radical damage and strengthens skin against environmental aggressors. In addition, it now provides UV protection of SPF 25 PA +++ to further protect the skin, especially around the delicate eye area.
And that’s not all, the Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer can be used for accentuating your facial contours, in addition to covering up dark circles, dark spots, blemish scars and discolourations. Its unique formula glides seamlessly onto skin and diffuses the appearance of irregular skin texture for a smooth and next-to-nothing finish that doesn’t crease into wrinkles or pores.

Moreover, the Concealer can also be used to add definition to your face. To illuminate your complexion, apply a concealer that’s one shade lighter than your foundation on the higher planes on your face, like on the tops of your cheekbones, chin, forehead, the bridge of the nose as well as the Cupid’s bow. Or, apply a concealer that’s one shade darker than your foundation, under the cheekbones, along your hairline as well as under your jawline and chin to sculpt and slim your facial contours. Blend with your fingertips or with Clé de Peau Beauté’s Concealer Brush for a seamless, undetectable finish. Small in size, yet big on impact—this is truly the Holy Grail of concealers.
