Holiday Look: Lise Watier Part I

We’re closing in on those last few days of shopping for the Christmas season! For any last minute shoppers out there and any Makeup Junkies looking to spruce up their holiday looks – we have you covered! There are plenty of options to choose from with the gorgeous Lise Watier Holiday Collection 2008. (In fact, there are so many products Makeup Junkie loves from Lise Watier that we'll be reviewing them in several posts!) The products and colours of this collection suit a host of skin tones and Christmas wish lists!

I. Lise Watier’s Magic Pearls Eyeshadow & Black Stars Eyeliner Pencil
Lise Watier’s Magic Pearls Eyeshadows ($20) are dome-baked in an eye-catching swirl of colour. Choose from one of three swirl combinations: Gold, Orchid or Teal. The pigmented eyeshadows glide on smoothly in a colour that first appears to be black - but as you tilt your head in the light, you notice a subtle tint of the colour portion of the eyeshadow. When paired with one of the matching eyeliner pencils [in Black Gold, Black Orchid & Black Teal ($16)], the result is absolutely eye-catching!
I sampled Magic Pearls Eyeshadow in Orchid and paired it with its counterpart Black Stars Pencil in Black Orchid, a deep violet colour with small light-reflecting sparkles. The result was a sultry smoky eye that was fitting for an evening out. I love that the eyeliner is waterproof and long-wearing, which means you can party into the night without worrying about exaggerated raccoon eyes!

ARTIST TIP: Use Magic Pearls Eye Pearls eyeshadow with some water or Lise Watier Magnifix (an eyeshadow mixing medium) to produce a more intense liquid liner like effect.

Believe me, once you take a look at these shadows and liners – you’ll be thinking that they’re just too pretty to give away! So much for being done your Christmas shopping, but hey at least you'll look fab for all that partying!

Stay tuned for more from Lise Watier!!

Wow I never knew about this brand, but the makeup is stunning! That swatch of it over the eyeliner is beautiful! How's the staying power of the shadows? Can't wait to see your other posts on this brand.
