A chocolate box is overrated… Here's what we’re loving lately.
The truth is, we’ve never been big on Valentine’s Day here at CLE. Something about it has always felt a little too forced, and that’s just not really our style. But! After the last couple of years we’ve all had, we’re welcoming an opportunity to celebrate ourselves and the ones we love, no matter how cheesy it may be. So, in the spirit of V-day, this is the product that makes us feel elevated and put together whether we’re planning on hitting the town, staying in with friends, or just getting ready because it makes us feel good.
Make it a Moment with Melting Lip Powder
Melting Lip Powder is a favorite that we use every day. Our founder Lauren wanted to offer something fun, bold, and easy to use that didn’t feel like it was too firmly in the lipstick corner and didn’t allow you to use it in other ways. She wanted to find a product that really fostered a moment of self-love, even if you weren’t headed out anywhere. As any makeup fan knows, putting on a fun lip has a way of doing that.
We set out to create six shades of flexible color that come in a pigmented powder form that melts into a long-wearing lip tint with a deep, matte finish. Basically, the perfect product for achieving that blurred, matte effect without your lipstick flaking off or fading.
Even though it’s a powder, it has an incredibly cushioned texture that melts into lips perfectly, leaving them feeling and looking moisturized, plump, and super pigmented.
Like the rest of the CLE lineup, Melting Lip Powder is meant to be minimal and multifunctional. We want everything we create to feel simple and make self-care an easy and enjoyable part of the day. That meant creating a lip product that could be used in more ways than one. Each shade of Melting Lip Powder is varied yet subtle enough to be used on the apples of cheeks and eyelids to create a flushed and vibrant look.
We simply take the doe foot applicator, add a few dots to the cheeks and eyelids and blend it in with our fingertips to create a matte, lived-in effect. We love that we can tap it on and wear it as a light hint of color or layer it for bolder cheeks and lips depending upon what kind of look we’re going for.
We intentionally created Melting Lip Powder in a small tube so that you can take it with you on the go, or mix and match colors to create your own unique hue. And, of course, we made it free of parabens and other harming ingredients so that you can feel good about what you’re putting on your skin every day.
The Perfect Pairing
If you are looking for something fun to gift to a friend (or yourself - no judgement!) this Valentine’s Day, Melting Lip Powder now comes in a mini set so that you can experience every shade and discover your favorites.
We love to pair Melting Lip Powder with the Lip Care Trio, a set of three hydrating lip treatments designed to exfoliate, nourish, and shine. The Lip Peel is formulated with Gluconolactone, which gently exfoliates and sloughs away dead skin to reveal smoother, softer lips. Follow it up with step number two, the Lip Oil, which is packed with hydrating ingredients like Avocado and Jojoba Seed Oil which deliver deep nourishment to lips. The final step is our gloss, which is formulated with shea butter and vitamin E to give lips a smoother, softer feel and just a hint of shine.
We hope you feel surrounded by love and care for yourself on this Valentine’s Day and every day!
