Lise Watier | Fall 2018 Haute Nature Collection: Review and Swatches
With the beautiful summer weather in full swing, I am not quite ready to delve into any fall collections but Lise Watier has just dropped their Fall 2018 Haute Nature Collection and I can't wait to any longer to share with you a few of the pieces. Inspired by rich, autumn hues and packaged in some stunning, haute couture prints, the range is now available online. To see some swatches and read my reviews, click......

Lise Watier | Haute Nature Eyeshadow Palette ($48 CAD for 12 g):
Housed in an antique bronze compact paired with a beautiful avant-garde floral inlay on the lid, the Haute Nature Eyeshadow Palette features six neutral eyeshadows. All the colors have a satin shimmer finish with the exception of the creamy matte ivory and the formulation for each is buttery smooth and very creamy. In terms of pigmentation, the palette is also phenomenal as even the matte ivory is smooth and non-patchy. I've said this before and I will say it again. Lise Watier makes amazing eyeshadows that are unfortunately underrated and this palette is just another example of the exceptional quality. The colors here aren't super unique but if you love cool-toned neutrals, then definitely check it out!

Lise Watier | Haute Nature Intense Waterproof Eyeliner ($24 CAD for 1.2 g):
This is a deep plum brown eyeliner formulated with a subtle hint of light pink shimmers. The liner is fairly smooth and creamy but the application requires a few swipes to achieve a rich, opaque coverage. Once it's set, the formulation is smudge-proof; a few sparkles may transfer if you try to rub them off but the pigments stay put for most of the day. Unfortunately, the eyeliner is not twist-up/retractable so it will need to be manually sharpened.

Lise Watier | Rouge Gourmand Glow Lip Balm in "Melon Sorbet"
Lise Watier | Rouge Gourmand Glow Lip Balm in "Melon Sorbet" ($23 CAD for 1.5 g):
Housed in a snazzy rose gold and gunmetal case, the Rouge Gourmand Glow Lip Balm is a new sheer lip color from Lise Watier that promises a comfortable and hydrating wear. A limited, edition, specially-packaged Haute Nature shade is available but I got here the color "Melon Sorbet", which is a soft baby coral. The pigmentation is very light so the color is mostly sheer on my lips. In terms of formulation, the Rouge Gourmand Glow Lip Balm is lightweight and hydrating. It's not as slick and buttery as I would like but it does provide a pleasant cooling sensation that slowly fades as the day goes on. Overall, the packaging is very cute but the formulation is nothing inspiring. Additionally, 1.5 g is not a lot of product. Compared to traditional lip balms or lipstick that come with at least 3 g of product, the value here is definitely compromised by design.

Overall this is really a beautifully-packaged collection. Although the Rouge Gourmand Glow Lip Balm left me a little underwhelmed, both the Haute Nature Eyeshadow Palette and the Intense Waterproof Eyeliner are very well-formulated. The collection also includes a gorgeous-looking blush so I would recommend checking that out as well! What fall releases are you looking forward to? Share with me in the comments below!
