A baked eyeshadow trio, this is a mini palette housed in a simple white and silver plastic compact with a holographic sticker on the lid. The packaging looks kind of cool and futuristic but it lacks a little extra something. Lise Watier packaging is usually very sleek and fancy so I was expecting a little more with this collection. Nevertheless, the formulation of these baked shadows is very impressive. Featuring a high-shine pearly pink shimmer, a soft rosewood shimmer, and a warm plummy maroon, the palette is pigmented, silky, and practical. The three shades go really well together and they blend seamlessly to create the perfect everyday smoky eye.

Below is a look I created using all three shades. The pearly pink is very versatile. It works well as a highlighter for the brow bone, the inner corner, and even the cheekbones.

Lise Watier Spring 2018 | Urban Velocity Blush ($34 CAD):
Undoubtedly my favorite item from this mini collection, the Urban Velocity Blush is a baked powder blush featuring a swirl of pink beige, cool pink, and dusty plum. When combined, the colors form a radiant rosy pink. The pigmentation is definitely on the sheer side but it is very buildable. The color applies evenly and blends seamlessly into the skin. It gives the cheeks a really healthy, translucent glow that's just what I look for in a good blush! You can see a little peek of what the blush looks like in my eye makeup photo above.

Lise Watier Spring 2018 | Urban Velocity Marble Lipstick ($25 CAD):
Formulated with nourishing shea butter, this is a marbled lipstick combining a soft milky pink and a dusty mauve-plum. The lipstick is very sheer and since there is a noticeable contrast between the pink and purple, the colors apply quite unevenly. I have to press and rub my lips together several times to ensure that there is no patchiness. Additionally, the lipstick is not as creamy as I would like as many swipes are needed to attain a rich, hydrating finish. Overall, this is not my favorite lipstick from Lise Watier. Although the final look is natural and flattering, the formulation lacks consistency and creaminess.

Although the packaging is a bit lackluster, this is overall a very good collection. I can see myself using the eyeshadow palette on a regular basis and the blush has already become one of my everyday go-to's. If you are a fan of natural, wearable eye and cheek colors, definitely check out this collection!
