Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in Ochre

Warning: bare face ahead!

I don't think I have bad skin, but I've had this pimple by my right brow for over a month now and it is the most frustrating thing ever. I've tried every single remedy that worked on me previously, but to no avail. It's like a magic pimple, but I don't want a magic pimple!

Anyway, I'm in the process of slowly introducing some of my makeup stalwarts to you so I can update my Skin/Hair Info page with proper links. One of the most important item in my stash is the Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in Ochre.

L-R: No makeup, with Chantecaille 'Just Skin' Tinted Moisturizer (odd. In real life it looked much better)

L-R: No concealer, with Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in Ochre

Would you look at that? The monstrosity is almost altogether concealed! Out of frustration (yes, yes I know I shouldn't have) I plucked at the offensive zit, so my skin was drying out when I was photographing this set, which is why you can still see a hint of scab. I also didn't do justice to the red spot near my chin. But I assure you with the photo below that the magic stick can indeed cover it:

Eyes: Sunday Riley Lady Godiva; Cheeks: Burberry Tangerine; Lips: Chanel Mademoiselle

Ah, normalcy!

The Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer is suitable for covering everything: spots, redness, discoloration, under eye circles, a mole even, if you really put your mind to it. It is super creamy but stays on till I remove my makeup at the end of the day. If you plan to get it, I suggest that you find a shade that matches your skin tone exactly. 

The only two unfortunate aspects of the concealer is 1) it comes in a limited range of four shades and 2) the price is way more than one would expect to pay for a skin-colored stick. But I firmly believe it's better to go all out for something that is truly worth it than to try multiple alternatives, only to ultimately spend more on less satisfactory results. You only need this one stick for every concealing job, and a little goes a long way. I haven't even thought of trying out another concealer since I bought mine over half a year ago, and though having to replace it is still a thought for the distant future, I'll repurchase it without any hesitation when the time comes.

In response to several reader comments, I typically use the Le Métier de Beauté Concealer Brush to apply the concealer - I swipe it with the brush and apply it on needed areas. I have also used my fingers in lieu of the brush when in a rush. Both are fine though I prefer the brush method. For heavier coverage, I apply directly from the stick. 

Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer retails for $70 and is available at


  1. OMG it works like magic!! 70 dollars tho... it would be double that in Oz :(

  2. $70 is a kick in the gut. But it concealed so wonderfully!

    ...But $70, though... >.<

    Mademoiselle looks so good on you! Why won't it look like that on mere? *whine*

  3. Do you use your fingers to apply it? Or something else?

  4. Gahhhhhhh. $70. That's like, I don't even know. 20 milkshakes!

    And I would also like to know - do you use your fingers? Apply directly from the tube? Use a brush?

  5. This one is on my list to get and you and Pippin just convinced me. :P

  6. I have an older version. Works amazing with Shiseido Foundation brush 131. Can't buy it in Oz stores.

  7. The price is heart-breaking, but it sure looks like it does the trick!

  8. Updated the post with information on application! Sorry I didn't include it before :x

    Tracy- now it's NEVER gonna leave!!!

  9. have you tried Mario Badescu's drying lotion? It works amazingly on pimples. Put it on overnight, and you will find your acne dead the next day.

  10. do you find it too dry for the under eye area? I heard so many people raved about this concealer but every time I use it to cover my dark circle it just gets really cakey! Don't know if it's just me.. do you have any tip for that?

  11. I picked up the same item (color as well!) from a duty free shop and it was a reasonable 50-something dollars. (resonable, cough cough) I agree it is a magical stick, but when over applied, it looks cakey, so a light tough is generally pretty good.

    Xiao, do you experience any issues with fading? I've set with powder and usually wear a foundation with a primer underneath, but I find it fades considerably 4 hours in. Maybe I'm just a greasy mess?

  12. Crikey! Where's my credit card? I want this! I remember all your raves and I'm going to bite the bullet one day. And I don't mean to laugh but the 1st photo made me think of our Passport/IC photos :D

  13. Iris- no, this is the first I've heard of it and I need to hunt it down NOW!

    cavalla- I actually find it really creamy, which should work even with dry under eyes. Perhaps you might be putting too much of it? Also, do you use eye cream?

    Jane- oooh that's 20 less! A light touch is definitely better. It's really all you need...

    It stays on unless I rub my fingers all over my face (which unfortunately... I do a lot of). My under eyes (which I don't touch) stay concealed all day. I'm a greasy mess too so I don't know if it might just be a person to person thing? :( it's like the le metier concealer. heard so many raves but it didn't work as well on me.

    Paris- my sister bought it because I kept jabbering to her about it :P

  14. Yaaaaa so good! So good, Wands! Why?????

  15. I hear you on the magic zit front. I have the remains of a gazillion of them so DON'T PICK, Xiao!
