So I'm curious for any ladies who've tried it... Is this brand worth the hype? Being a lipstick fiend, I'm especially interested in reviews of the Extra Rich Lipstick. Everything I've heard is that their products are mind-blowing, but I can't imagine anything justifying that price.

So... dissuade or enable?

Dissuade, dissuade, dissuade! I have only tried their creme foundation which I paid a little over $100 for after taxes used it for 4 days and while the coverage is pretty good it really epthazised my light dryness I have to my skin. Definitely not worth all the money & hype on this. I think make up for evers HD foundation looks better than this did with the same coverage but for less $ I had to sell this for $50 which was only half what I paid for it then noticed 2 weeks later the person who purchased it from me posted it up for sale lol.

I second the dissuading. I love the colors of CdP's silky finish lipsticks, but they charge more than the price of a Guerlain lipstick and nearly double a Chanel lipstick, yet give you a measly 0.07oz. Even most high-end lipsticks give at least 0.12oz these days. Half the product for double the price? That's just not going to fly for me. There are other HE brands that give an adequate amount of product for a better price with a texture that I already find exceptional.

hmmm...that's good to know! the lipsticks look so tempting, especially seeing the lovely lipstick swatches on temptalia...it's nice to get the flipside as well....

I'm glad to hear opinions, too! I was given a sample of their "Le Coton" pads and while they're AMAZING, I'm not likely to pay $20 for a box of cotton.. even if it is "wrapped in silk fibers."

Looks like I will be the lone enabler in this thread. I have several types of products from this line.

The eyeshadows are rather sparkly, so you have to take that into account before selecting your purchase. They do not have chunky glitter, however, like some TF es. I have purchased a couple of quads, which have been in regular rotation since purchase. I typically add a matt shadow to the mix from another brand for the complete eyelook. The shadows last all day without much fading when worn over primer.

Love, love, love the extra rich ls! They are beyond $$, so I only have a couple. Love them! Don't regret this purchase at all.

Not as big of a fan of the extra silky lipstick, which everyone seems to love. They look amazing when first applied, but the wear time is just terrible. Not worth the $$ IMHO.

^^ Which eyeshadow quads do you have? I have my eyes on 207 and nearly bought it. I also like 202 and the new 209. I love how silky the eyeshadows feel. I have extra silky lipstick 106, and it looks very pretty when applied. Agreed with you about wear time, and it also forms a ring around my lips when it dries, so I won't be purchasing any more of those. I almost bought an extra rich lipstick, but it feels too expensive! I am finishing a tube of the concealer, it is very good. It covers my serious dark eye circles, doesn't feel too dry and doesn't slide. I bought the eyebrow pencil a few months back and love it. Application is easy and the finish is beautiful, and it doesn't need sharpening!

There is a new enriched lip luminizer for spring/summer. I wonder how it compares to extra silky lipstick.

agree on the lipsticks. extra rich is actually worth the $. these days using T10.

I have been using 204, 206, 207, and 208. 208 is my favorite! I use it several times a week. I am also lusting after 209, but I haven't bought it yet.

I also love ER ls in R3 & R7! I use them both several times a week.

FYI... I received a heads up email that Cle de Peau is reformulating (I hate that word) their extra rich ls. They apparently will have three new formula variations/textures, and they will be refillable. This launches in the beginning of August, and there are limited amounts of the old colors/formula left. Time for me to order a lot of bu's.

I had heard something about that as well- thank you so much for confirming. I'm considering a run on my counter to see which shades I might want to grab before they're gone...

No problem!

Now I am wondering if one extra rich lipstick is going to cost even more since you need to buy the product and the case. With the powder products you can skip the case if you are careful. I imagine with ls, however, you would most likely need the case. Plus I do now see myself switching lipsticks in and out of a case on a regular basis (b/c I change what ls I wear on pretty much a daily basis), so this would mean having to buy multiple cases. Plus changing a cream bullet would probably be more challenging than popping out a powder product - more damage potential. Not what I want to do.

Here's a post on the reformulation and repackaging from BTiB:

http://bestthingsinbeauty.blogspot.ca/2013/07/coming-soon-cle-de-peau-beaute-extra.html

She has swatches too! So apparently, the new lipsticks will be $65USD for both the bullet and the casing and, as suspected, you can just use the bullet on its own. I think that's about $5 more than they were before, no? I hate to think how that will translate here in Canada.

There's also a mention of the new formulation in this month's In Style magazine. What's funny is that while BTiB has the shades by number, In Style mentions the shade by name (Mr. Lincoln). Not sure which way they'll go, although technically, I suppose, their extra rich lipsticks always had names in theory, they just weren't printed anywhere.

By the I think I've managed to track down swatches of all the existing CdP Extra Rich lipsticks:

Thank you for the information! Though I am not at all thrilled with the idea of having to buy a case, my main concern is the "reformulation." Hopefully the reformulation will produce a great product. The new swatches look promising. I will be buying bu's of a couple of colors of the old formula that I use a lot. Plus there are a couple of colors that I have been waiting to try, and I guess the time to try them is now.

Here's some more information on the other products that are coming with the Fall Collection. I'm actually kind of curious about the shadows. I've not tried their shadows before, so I'm curious to know if anyone has any thoughts on the formula.

The fall collection is now available on NM's website, including the new ls but minus the ls holders.

I have never tried the single es b/c of the price point. I have always gone for the quads which are pretty pricey but only $10 more if you skip the case. (Plus I am afraid that if I buy one, then I will end up trying to hunt all of them down to purchase.) Having said that, I have read some very good reviews of the older singles. I don't know about the new ones though.

Just FYI. I purchased a couple of the new extra rich ls and the holder. Switching the different bullets is very easy, so you only need one holder (unless you plan to carry multiple lipsticks at a time). Also if you leave the refill with the plastic cap in the original box, then I think you may be able to get away with carrying it minus the holder.

So far I really like the colors & formulas that I have tried.

Good suggestions! I'll see how much they come out to if/ when we get them here. I like the old ones, so I might spring for one or two plus a case if I really like the colours.
