Back when I was a beauty-obsessed teen, it was common for new makeup launches and cult products to be basically impossible to get a hold of in the UK. Thankfully, times have changed and beauty obsessives no longer need to cross the pond to stock up on the best in beauty at Sephora with places like Cult Beauty, Space NK and even
Boots now offering all the best beauty brands here on British soil.
There was one product, however, that up until recently had proved almost impossible to get your hands on in the UK, and it has a cult status like no other. Found in the backstage kits of any
makeup artist worth their salt as well as being a staple in the beauty bags of celebrities and supermodels, I'd been dying to try this concealer for years—and now, since its UK launch a few months ago, it’s become a staple in my beauty arsenal.
The product in question?
Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer (£54), which since October has been exclusively stocked at Harrods in the UK. Founded in 1982, Clé de Peau Beauté is a Japanese beauty brand with seriously luxurious formulas. Disclaimer: Its products are far from affordable, but the brand's dedication to cutting-edge scientific formulations and beautiful textures mean they're worth the investment.
In fact, it's the top beauty brand in Japan, which is pretty impressive. But when its products launched stateside in the late '90s, the brand soon reached cult status in the West.
