I don't want this entrancing dance with Cle de Peau's Collection Bal Masque Makeup Coffret (Gemma), to ever end!

Cle de Peau describes the radiant and lavish colors of the limited edition coffret as "inspired by the magical, opulence of a glamorous Venetian Masquerade ball." The set includes: an eye color quad in 314, a perfect lash mascara in 3, and the extra rich lipstick in 314.

The Gemma mask design on each of the products, the palette and lipstick's beveled-cut exterior packaging, exudes elegance.

Keeping in fashion with the whole masquerade ball theme, the shadows themselves are embossed with a mask design.

All four eye shadows have a shimmery, semi-metallic finish. When applied thinly, these finely milled, silky shadows have a beautiful translucency; however, they are pigmented, and only require a few layers to achieve opaque radiance.

A dark, smoky, brownish-plum.

A antiqued, amber-gold.

A olive green with a golden sheen.

A taupish-platinum with a lavender sheen.

As you well know, I have an affinity for colored mascaras, and the deluxe-sized Perfect Lash Mascara in 3 was an nice treat. The wand has a subtle curve, and applies the right amount of product onto the lashes. The Perfect Lash Mascara defines, lengthens, and curls.

The Extra Rich Lipstick is the proverbial red bow of the coffret. With its creamy texture, and brilliant pigmentation, the lipstick has a beautiful velvet-satin finish.

Cle de Peau's Collection Bal Masque Makeup Coffret retailed for 16,200 yen and is/was one of my favorites among all the holiday sets. I just wish these items were not limited edition. I've made a substantial dent in all the items, and it'll be a sad day when they're gone.  


  1. Oh my Gawwwwwwddd!I'm dying with these, they so prettyyyyyy!!!!Also the look you created is gorgeous!I especially love the lips, the eyeshadow you placed on top gives this beautiful beni effect and I'm all for that!I have a small clay pot of Moroccan henna lip tint that creates a similar effect (darker than benibana,almost brick brown-red, but with that beautiful greenish-gold sheen)and I treasure it like it's...well, something veeeeery important...I suck at life..can't think of a simile...ugh...anyway...I treasure it...when it's over I'll probabl be in tears...
