New In Beaty: First Impressions Ciele Cosmetics

ciele cosmetics

Another brand not too new to the market, but definitely new to Sephora, makeup brand: Ciele.

I picked up all the available products and took them for a spin. But first here is what you need to know about the brand.

The concept behind the brand is sun smart and acne safe meaning ingredients that don’t clog the pores but also non-nano mineral based broad spectrum SPF. Thy are also clean vegan ingredients that are gluten free and fragrance free as well as sustainable. 

The brand was founded by celebrity makeup artist Nikki DeRoest with clients such as Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Hailey Bieber and Cerre Francis who formerly worked at Hourglass cosmetics.

So true to the claims, I do find this to be quite accurately a serum like foundation with a natural finish with a coverage that is light but buildable to a medium.

Coverage: Light Finish: Natural Formulation: Loose Powder SPF: SPF over 30 Highlighted Ingredients: - Vitamin E: Defends against pollution and provides antioxidants. - Niacinamide: Reduces the look of pores and boosts skin barrier. - Physalis Angulata Extract: Calms skin and offers anti-inflammatory benefits. Ingredient Callouts: This product is vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and comes in recyclable packaging.

I also think that the powder is a solid product as well. My first go around with the powder was a little cakey. I had applied it with the puff applicator is comes with and it just packed on way too much product. However when using a fluffy powder brush which applies less product and evenly distributes it I think it gave a nice soft finish. I wouldn’t go as far to say it has a crazy blurring effect but I do get a little bit of a soft focus vibe from it, and  it does sit on the skin nice and sets the foundation well.

My Thoughts

This was by far my favorite product I tried from Ciele and one of my favorite contour sticks in general. This product blends effortlessly and literally melts into the skin like it is not even there. It is also the perfect natural contour shade in my fair skin days The stick formula works great for travel. There is a decent amount of product. And it even has the additional SPF benefit. I have no bad things to say about this product.

My Thoughts

Like I said, I am just getting lucky with Sephora purchases because I like the blush as well. I think that the formula is nice and creamy but not sticky. Although it claims to be hydrating I think it just gives a healthy natural finish and the color June looks like a natural flush from a tan. It is buildable and blends great with a contour shade.

My Thoughts

And the final products which are yet again winners in my book, the brushes. I think although the hairs are synthetic they have do remind me of a natural hair brush. I LOVE the shapes and think that each is the perfect size and great angle for application. I also am really enjoying the dual ended feature lately as I foresee a lot of summer travel coming up and loving the convenience of packing less but knowing that each has double duty

Final Thoughts

Call me lucky but this is another brand that just hit the mark in everything they did. The product line is small – just these handful of base products but you can tell that each is very well thoguths
