Today I have a massive and stunning collection I have been absolutely in love with, with a FOTD using all the products at the very end, and that’s the Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection*. Obviously inspired by the aurora borealis of Northern Canada, I think it’s a fantastic inspiration behind a winter makeup collection that’s reflected in the shimmery shades and stunning packaging. Lise Watier does some of the most gorgeous limited edition packaging, and with glitter accents and a blue-to-purple shift, this collection is no exception.
The centrepiece of the Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection is definitely the Lise Watier Aurora Eyeshadow Palette, and it comes with six silky shades. All six shades are super creamy and pigmented, with the blue being slightly less rich in pigmentation. These apply well, blend fantastically and have little fall out.I am a massive fan of Lise Watier eyeshadows and these shades are no exception. There’s also a nice big mirror on the lid for applying.
When I saw photos online I was especially intrigued by the two single eyeshadows in the collection, which include the Lise Watier Aurora Iridescent Eyeshadow in Violet, as well as a Teal shadow. This is a very unique glittery shade with a slight purple-gold duochrome to it, and some fallout unlike the regular shadows. It can be built up to add to the effect, and I also think it would be cool used wet, giving a gorgeous look for a special occasion.
Aafter my experience with the amazing Alex Collection I was definitely most excited by the powder products in the Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection, in particular the Lise Watier Aurora Celestial Light Powder, which I had heard amazing things about even before mine arrived. I was not disappointed! This pinky champagne shade that gives a gorgeous glow and is very soft and pigmented. The packaging is also really pretty and nicely matches the shadows.
The Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection introduced my first experience with a fan brush, but this is the perfect way to apply the highlighter. It’s large and soft, and I used it to brush the highlighter along my cheekbones, giving that perfect glow without packing on too much of the pigmented product at once. The handle has the same blue-purple shift as the rest of the packaging.
The Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection also includes the Lise Watier Eye Shine Eyeliner in Aurora, which is a very creamy and pigmented (notice a theme here?) eyeliner with a blue to teal metallic finish. It doesn’t tug at all and lasts all day on my lower lash line.
Along with the Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection, I was sent two more new products I hadn’t tested out and that perfectly complimented the other products to create a full FOTD. I have admitted before my cream blush addiction, so I was thrilled to see the Lise Watier Blush Fondant Supreme in Naturel. It has a very creamy formula initially but sets to powder on the skin. I tried it applying with both my fingers and a brush, and I do prefer using my fingers to blend it in for a natural finish for this peachy pink shade.
Finally, I’m quite obsessed with one of the newest shades of Lise Watier Rouge Fondant Supreme in Kate. The formula reminds me of a Revlon Lip Butter, but both more moisturizing and more pigmented. It glides easily onto my lips, even though they are in rough winter shape, and is shiny and very flattering on. Honestly it doesn’t feel like wearing lipstick, and I can easily see this becoming a year-round favourite.
I used all of the products in this post for my Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection FOTD. On the eyes I went with the purple on the outside and gold on the inside, using the pale pink on my browbone and adding a layer of shimmer from the individual shadow. Of course I applied cream blush and highlighter to my cheeks, eyeliner to my lower lash line, and the lipstick to, well, my lips.
This was my first chance to really do a full FOTD using Lise Watier products, and I am definitely an even bigger fan of the brand now. The Lise Watier Aurora Winter 2014 Collection is extremely well curated, and the palette and highlighter are the standouts to me, but I am also a huge fan of the Rouge Fondant Supreme formula.
