As a Beauty Editor I’ve amassed an impressive makeup collection but the products that excite me most are stunning eye shadow and gorgeous lipstick!
Bold, creamy color is totally on-trend for summer so why not make a statement with the luxurious Rouge Gourmand Lipsticks from Lise Watier. With 8 complexion flattering shades to chose from there is something for everyone and the formula is lush, comfortable and insanely vivid!
The first thing that drew me in was the color selection – each shade seems quite universal with a pretty range of neutrals and brights. Once you glide on the rich, buttery pigment and feel the smooth, moisturizing texture, you will fall in love! Infused with Vitamin E, antioxidants and skin quenching emollients, they protect against environmental aggressors and bathe lips in layers of velvety, long-lasting color with a creamy, matte finish. Since the formula doesn’t dry down completely, it provides moist flexibility and you can layer to adjust the intensity.
The lipsticks are lightweight, long-lasting and very conditioning so they keep lips smooth and supple for hours. The color payoff is highly saturated, vibrant and full-coverage with no dragging or skipping and the plush texture creates the illusion of fullness. I also like the application surface because the thin, pointed edge along the tip helps line and shape for more definition.
Swatches from left to right: Red Velvet, Glacage, Sundae, Zinfandel and Cake Pop
The waxes in the formula make the lipstick susceptible to sweating/condensation so avoid leaving them in the car or sun this season. Other than that, these beauties are great quality and retail for $24.00 each. Lise Watier is available at department stores and drugstores including: Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, and online at lisewatier.com.
