When spring rolls around many makeup lovers will adjust their beauty routine and replace deep vampy shades for soft tones more fitting for the season. The Lise Watier Spring Collection will lighten-up your look with radiant neutrals and petal perfect hues that coincide with recent trends.
The Rose Nudes 12 Color Eye Shadow Palette is luminous, sophisticated and great for everyday wear. The shade selection includes the right balance of smooth mattes, shimmer and satin finishes for highlighting, crease contouring, definition and contrast. Although many of the colors are fresh and neutral, the deeper shades create smokiness and depth for bolder effects. I love the dark burgundy-brown which pairs well with a wide variety of shadows and Golden Peach is bright and beautiful! The cool greys seem to be a seasonal trend and the slivery-champagne tones are flattering on all complexions.
The color payoff is good and the shadows can be enhanced to full-coverage saturation for more vibrancy. Every shade has a creamy, blendable texture that applies velvety smooth so they layer well and stay put all day without fading, especially when used with a good primer. I also like that the colors are easy to match so they look great in almost any combination! The palette is handy for travel and comes with a mirror and double-ended brush for $65.00.
The 24 Hrs Glam Eye Shadow Sticks ($23.00 ea) are available in 3 neutral hues - Ivory, Petal and Urban. They have a rich, creamy texture that is very spreadable for efficient coverage and once set they are waterproof and long lasting with no transfer. These shades are not really primary lid colors that can be worn alone but they do make a great base for crease-proof, anti-smudge results and even application.
The Bicolor Lipstick ($25.00) represents the hottest Korean trend - Ombré Lips! This beautiful clash of color features two expertly matched hues with a luminous satin finish and a hint of eye-catching shimmer. You can apply the lipstick in fluid swipes so the colors show up separately (frosty pink at the top and bright fuchsia at the bottom) or blend them together for a pretty mix. Using a lip brush helps accentuate each color more efficiently and although it is a bit difficult to differentiate the two shades in the photo, they make the perfect spring combo!
