Lise Watier x ELLE | Fall 2017 Collection: Review and Swatches
Brand collaborations with designers, celebrities, and social media influencers are pretty commonplace nowadays but for Fall 2017, Lise Watier is mixing things up with a limited edition collection created in partnership with ELLE Canada magazine. Featuring several sophisticated and fall-friendly items, the Lise Watier x ELLE Collection is available now. To see some swatches and review of the collection, click......

For packaging inspirations, the collection drew heavily from all the latest trends. Marble and rose gold are the prominent features and all the colors within the collection are chic and laid back.

Lise Watier x ELLE Weekender Eyeshadow Palette ($48 CAD):
Housed in a shiny rose gold case with a marble-patterned lid, the Weekender Eyeshadow Palette holds three matte shadows and three shimmery/metallic shadows. The packaging is super elegant and chic while all six shades are buttery smooth and richly pigmented. For the shimmers, you get a light brown, a dusty medium blue, and a taupe-y gray.

For the mattes, there is a creamy ivory, a light taupe, and a dark cool-toned brown. As you can see in my arm swatches, the shimmers are super pigmented while the mattes are even and smooth. The only exception is the matte dark brown, which is slightly patchy when swatched on the arms. However, it worked just fine as a crease color when applied on the lids.
Below is a look I created using all the shades except for the shimmery taupe-y gray. The plummy maroon liner I used is also a part of the collection (see below).

Lise Watier x ELLE Intense Waterproof Eyeliner in "Weekender" ($23 CAD):
This is sophisticated dark plum eyeliner with a bold matte finish. The formulation is super creamy when swatched on the back of the hand but on the lid, it's slightly dry and tuggy. However, the color does set to a completely waterproof and smudge-proof finish that lasts all day. Lastly, the pencil is not twist-up and retractable so you have to sharpen it to keep the tip pointed.

Lise Watier x ELLE Rouge Gourmand Lipstick in "Weekender" ($25 CAD):
Encased in a rose gold tube wrapped with a marble-patterned sticker label, the Rouge Gourmand in "Weekender" is a caramel brown lipstick. The packaging is a bit of a letdown because I didn't expect the marble pattern to be a sticker; it doesn't look cheap by any means but it's not as well-made as the eyeshadow packaging.
Formulation-wise, the lipstick is semi-sheer but super even and hydrating. The color is not my cup of tea but I think it would make for a perfect nude lipstick for those with darker skin tones. In terms of wear, the lipstick is just okay. The finish has a natural sheen and is prone to transferring.
