Lise Watier Fall 2016 Chic & Rustique Collection: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: This post contains affliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
Inspired by the romantic autumn weather, the new Lise Watier Chic & Rustique Collection is full of soft and natural earth tones. Today I want to share with you some swatches of the eyeshadow palette, the contouring trio, and the new 2-in-1 cheeks and lips color. To see some swatches, click.......
Lise Watier Chic & Rustique Eyeshadow Palette
Lise Watier Chic & Rustique Eyeshadow Palette ($44 CAD):
This is a gorgeous five-shade shadow palette housed in a gorgeous rose gold compact. The lid has a very artsy fall print and it's covered with a shiny layer of clear plastic. The shadows are quite large at 1.8 grams each and the palette includes two mini sponge-tipped applicators.

Included are a matte cream, a soft creamy gold shimmer, a soft matte cinnamon brown, a metallic olive green, a soft taupe-gray satin shimmer, and a matte dark taupe-brown. Every single shade (even the mattes) is creamy and pigmented. Lise Watier has some of the best shadows on the market and this palette is a perfect example of the superb quality. I also love how easy and wearable all six shades are; the balanced matte/shimmer ratio is great as well!

Lise Watier Portfolio Sculpting Trio
Lise Watier Portfolio Sculpting Trio ($42 CAD):
An interesting matte contouring trio housed in a stacked, three-layer compact, the Portfolio Sculpting Trio includes a sheer and soft baby yellow, a sheer cool taupe, and a soft light brown. The product is advertised as a "wet & dry powder" although I don't ever see the need to use this wet.

All three shades are fairly sheer but buildable. The colors are definitely more suitable for fair to light skin tones and I like the inclusion of a cool taupe, which always works better than a warmer brown at creating contours. My only dislike about the trio is the packaging. The stacked pans are quite clunky and unwieldy. The design looks cool but I would much rather prefer a traditional palette.

Lise Watier Eclat Veloute Cheeks & Lips
Lise Watier Eclat Veloute Cheeks & Lips ($24 CAD):
A 2-in-1 whipped mousse color designed for both the cheeks and lips, the Eclat Veloute is currently available only in one shade- a soft matte peach. The formulation is silicone-y and lightweight but it did not work for my lips at all. The color was thin and patchy, highlighting every fine line and dry patch. The matte finish also feels very dry and icky and despite being matte, it still transfers and slides around when I purse my lips together.

On the other hand, the product does work better as a cheek color. The shade blends out nicely to give a sheer flush. The wear, however, is not great; the color fades pretty quickly but I do have fairly oily skin to begin with.
Lastly, I do want to note that the Eclat Veloute is lightly scented and I swear it smells exactly like Guerlain products!
