Well folks, we are officially in that weird week before Christmas and New Years where no one knows what day of the week it is.
The holidays this year were definitely a little (or rather, a lot) different, but it was nice to actually take it easy at home and not feel obliged to go out and see a million people. Now that Christmas is over and we are heading toward New Years Eve (NYE), I’m actually kind of looking forward to taking it easy at home. NYE is actually my least favourite holiday since I feel you are always pressured to do things and everything is overpriced and it’s always so cold out.
Anyways, even though NYE will be low-key this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t still sparkle and shine a little. A makeup collection I’m totally digging is from Lise Watier’s holiday offering.
First up, the Diamond Dreams collection is what NYE looks are made out of. This collection features an eyeshadow palette, a highlighter palette, a blush/highlighter brush, a lipstick, gloss, and a liner/shadow collection.
The Diamond Dreams Nine-Colour Eyeshadow Palette (C$55) contains nine shadows in matte, satin, and metallic finishes. These shadows are simply stunning and are very creamy and pigmented, making them stunning when applied. I love the shade range they included since there are more neutral tones, as well as jewel tones and pinks, making it perfect for any eye colour and just about any look. Plus, the finishes of the shadows are stunning and perfect for the holiday season (especially that metallic/glittery grey in the middle).
Pair your glittery eyes with an ethereal glow thanks to the Diamond Dreams Blush & Glow Blush and Highlighter Palette (C$49), which is a stunning highlighter palette that also doubles as blushes.
This palette opens up to four universal shades that can be used separate or together for a beautiful and healthy glow. These highlighters are also silky smooth and leave you with a stunning finish that is sure to turn heads (virtually or IRL).
While you’re already at it, grab the Diamond Dreams Blush & Highlighter Brush (C$34). This brush has a faceted rose gold handle in the shape of a rough diamond and is perfect for applying either brush or a highlight to the high points of your face.
For the lips, apply the Rouge Intense Supreme Luxury Edition lipstick (C$28), which is an exclusive mauve lipstick that comes in a jewel decorated case. This lipstick is very creamy and hydrates the lips, leaving them with lasting colour. Although this shade isn’t one I would typically reach for it is a really pretty colour and definitely a shade that is very universal.
This lipstick is perfect for the holiday season and I found you can definitely wear this with either a nude eye or a more dramatic one, depending on the look you are going for.
Pair the lipstick with their Universal Lip Gloss (C$25), which looks purple in the tube, but actually applies translucent. This gloss leaves lips hydrated and with a lustrous finish, without feeling sticky at all.
Finally, if you want to smell amazing this holiday season, spray a little of their Ivresse perfume on. This scent has been around for over 45 years and is one of the brand’s most classic fragrances.
For the holidays, Lise Watier came out with a holiday set (currently on sale at Hudson’s Bay for C$42.55) that includes a hand and body lotion and a 100 ml bottle of the eau de parfum.
This fragrance includes top notes of jasmine, bergamot, and rose, followed by heart notes of cistus, lily of the valley, and orange blossom. Finally, it has base notes of vetivier, ylang ylang, and musk.
I really love the Lise Watier collection and adore both the formulas of the products, as well as the packaging. Every item in the makeup collection contains beautiful crystal-inspired packaging and is sure to be a real gem in your makeup collection.
Did you pick up any of the Lise Watier products during the holidays?
