The Lise Watier Summer Collection features soft shadows contrasted with warm bronzer, sheer lip color and luminous shimmer - inspired by the elegance and exoticism of Africa, America and Asia.
The uplifting wave motif on the packaging stylishly represents the aesthetics of cosmopolitan cities.
The 5-Color Eye Shadow Palette features an ultra-soft cream-to-powder texture that feels rich and applies smoothly. Initially the pigments are dense and velvety for optimal glide and coverage but once set, they become lightweight and radiant. At first glance these shades may seem pale and simple but on the skin they appear iridescent with a hint of metallic brilliance. The steel grey is great for defining the crease and I love the shimmery coral and bright gold.
For even more intensity, layer over a good primer - the shadows are non-creasing, silky and long lasting plus the color combination is perfect for warm, summer days. The palette retails for $44.00.
The Luxoil Lipstick (26.00) is available in 2 shades – Voyage (coral) and Sauvage (nude). The sheer pigmentation and buttery texture is similar to tinted balm so lips feel soft, smooth and moisturized for hours of healing protection against dryness. The neutral hue is flesh tone so it isn’t very noticeable on my complexion but the coral can be enhanced for more vibrancy.
Bronzer is popular all year but during the summer many women prefer more shimmer and warmth. The Luxotika Bronzing Powder features a gorgeous multi-toned, marbled surface with various shades of gold, champagne and bright pink. The luxurious mineral texture is incredibly silky for seamless blending and the refined shimmer makes skin appear to glow from within for a natural finish. There is no chunky glitter or sparkle and the powder is enriched with moisturizing Shea Butter and Vitamin E which prevents it from settling into lines or emphasizing rough skin. It can even be used on the arms, legs, back, torso and décolleté to accentuate the entire body! Although the powder can be intensified for glamorous looks, the effect is soft and elegant. The bronzer retails for $45.00.
The Highlighter Sticks ($36.00) are available in 2 shades - Pearl (ideal for fair to medium skin tones) and Gold (ideal for medium to deep skin). These luminizers emit spectacular brightness and glide-on smooth and creamy before transforming into a light powder. The color payoff is highly saturated with frosty, high-impact shimmer and dazzling radiance. If you want to tone them down, simply blend to diffuse the color or layer boldly for a strobing effect. Once set, the pigment lasts all day without fading and they don’t rub-off or transfer easily. With a good primer you can even use them as eye shadow!
