The Lise Watier fall 2014 collection takes classic shades and beauty bag staples, then gives them a fashion-forward twist. Think rose gold and animal print motifs, combined with formulas with innovative longwear finishes. It's enough to make you want to reboot your makeup routine, stat. Ready for a closer look?
If you only snap up one piece from the limited edition Fall Féline collection, make it the Quatour Féline Eyeshadow Quartet ($36). The champagne, taupe, pink, and copper-brown shades in semi-matte and iridescent finishes are versatile enough to go with any lip colour for any day-to-night look. The cream powder formula is long-lasting and pigmented. Plus, think how chic the rose gold and leopard print case will look in your makeup bag or purse! Definitely my pick of the new launches.
To go with the eyeshadow palette, Lise Watier is also introducing their bestselling precision-tip Féline Eyeliner HD ($20) in brown, and Féline Velvet Lip Lacquer ($23)—a pigmented liquid lipstick that dries to a matte, velvety finish—in nude and rouge.
The 24 HRS Glam eyeshadow crayons are so much fun. Not only is the formula waterproof, smudge-proof, and long-wearing (no primer required!), the crayon format and glitter-infused formula make it a cinch to apply and tote around for quick day-to-night transformations. Just draw and blend immediately before the eyeshadow sets. There's even a built-in sharpener on the other end if you want a more precise tip for lining.
If there's one beauty trend I encourage you to try this fall, it's a fuller brow. Full brows not only frame the eyes, they lend polish and a youthful vibe to an otherwise makeup-free face. Lise Watier's Double Definition Brow Liner makes natural-looking full brows a cinch. Fill in sparse spots with the auto-sharpening pencil in short, feathery strokes, and then brush out any harsh lines with the other end. And FYI, 'Châtain' (a charcoal brown) is a perfect match for Asian brows: not as stark as black brow pencils, but not as auburn-y and too-light as other browns.
