Hello Gypsies!  Let me start off by apologizing for my long absence that was due to my site being hacked.  I never thought I would have to deal with or be in this situation but after weeks of stressing out and looking for the real issue, I finally found the right person to save it.  Long story short, I hope this will never happen again and encourage any of you to pay a yearly fee to have a security feature insalled; worth every penny. I also would love to encourage you to follow me on Periscope under “Beautygypsy” where I discuss in detail products recently purchased and reviewed.  So please come join the discussion and be part of my small group of very well informed and engaging women.  I am also on snap chat under the same name.

Now that we got that out of the way, let us move on to what I do best, chat about makeup.  I have been fortunate enough to play with Cle de Peau’s Powder Eye Color Solo ($45/1g) from their spring 16′ collection and excited to share my thoughts with all of you.  This new collection launched seven gorgeous shades that come in three luxurious textures: shimmery, semi-matte and matte.  The colors range from basic neutrals and pastels to brighter, fun colors.  The shadows feel like butter and are very moisturizing thanks to Hydro-Wrap Complex EX and Premium Argan Tree Oil.  Let us take a look at these beauties:

I decided to use some as liners and others as all over or brow bone color and was pleased with the results.  I used an eye primer to extend the staying power of the shadows and it lasted me a good six hours before I saw any fading.  I don’t consider Cle de Peau shadows a highly pigmented color line but these shadows definitely make the cut.  They are user friendly yet create a sultry, smoky eye or a natural, all-over eye look with minimal effort and experience.  I used my Wayne Goss crease brush and Tom Ford all over to apply these shadows effortlessly.

How gorgeous are these? I found shades #201, 204, 209 and 210 to be flattering on my brown eyes but definitely can work on other eye colors as they make a statement without overpowering the eye.  Below, I used colors #209 and #210 to create a sublte, but smoky eye:

Conclusion?  I absolutely love these new additions of the solo powder shadows to the collection.  I would definitely love to see a dark navy, black, deep plum and gray to make these good basics to the line.  If you wanted to only purchase one color, I would recommend #1 since it is a rich, dark brown with slight shimmer.  Will you be investing in these shadows?  I would love to hear your thoughts.
