2017 has been a great year for Lise Watier with a stunning array of vibrant new pigments and 45 years of beauty to celebrate. If you thought the previous seasonal collections were good then you’ll love the limited edition holiday range full of glitz, glamour and cool trendy tones in glittering black packaging. Many of the products are limited edition so don’t forget to ask Santa for your favorites.
The Smokey Nudes 12 Color Eye Shadow Palette ($65.00) is perfect for holiday soirees and partying well into the night. The smooth, buttery formula transforms from a lush cream to long-wear powder for optimal color payoff and superior blending. Use the softer hues for subtle looks or layer and smudge the shimmers and deep mattes for sultry contrast. The shadows on the top row match the colors directly below them for a nice mix of crease contours and statement shades with buildable saturation.
The Glam Pigment ($28.00) is available in two mesmerizing shades – Superstar (iridescent gold) and Fireworks (bronzy pink). The formula is loose and looks like chunky, flaky glitter but once you smooth it onto the skin it becomes an ultra-rich velvety pigment that glides on full-coverage and super intense. These shadows are fantastic for events and New Years Eve plus you can also use them to highlight the cheekbones or dress up the lips with a gleaming frosty finish.
To turn these brilliant shadows into long-lasting eyeliner simply mix them with the Metamorfix Liquid Transformer ($17.00).
The 24K Glam Rouge Lipstick ($25.00) is exquisite with flecks of gold and a unique formula that uses the skin’s pH level to intensify the natural color of your lips. It glides on effortlessly and envelops lips in silky moisture with a faint pink tint. The consistency feels like ultra-lightweight oil that melts in quickly without greasiness for a luminous, healthy finish.
The Havana Trio Highlighter ($46.00) is not part of the holiday collection but it is perfect for the season with bold, illuminating shades that enhance all skin tones for instant radiance. The frosty hues are very buildable, lightweight and easy to blend for a natural glow or high-impact strobing. You can mix and match the colors to alter the effect and the luxurious powder applies seamlessly with no glitter.
If you haven’t tried the Lise Watier Lipsticks yet you definitely should. The Rouge Intense Supreme holiday shades ($27.00 each) are infused with antioxidants and tea extract for rich, nourishing comfort and dryness protection. These colors are exactly my style – vivid, bright and eye-catching with supple moisture and a hint of satiny shine.
If you’re going all-out this Christmas with head-to-toe shimmer then you’ll probably want to try the Glam Face & Body Powder ($45.00). The loose formula makes it a bit easier to cover large areas of body (arms, décolleté, shoulders, back, legs etc) and it illuminates the face as if bathed in soft candlelight.
The collection also includes shimmery nail lacquer that matches the shadow palette and puts the finishing touch on your glam holiday look.
