Lise Watier Pastel Power Spring 2013: The Eyes

lise watier spring 2

Lise Watier‘s spring 2013 collection, Pastel Power, is a 10-piece colleciton with a soft, peach-and-grey color scheme inspired by the “elegance and pureness of small flowers reminiscent of spring.”

The collection, available between February and April only, includes:

  • Limited Edition Quatuor Pastel Power Eyeshadow Quartet, $36, (I’m reviewing today)
  • Quatuor Les Lumieres Eyeshadow Quartet, $32, (recommended for use with other shades to brighten up areas and add a satin finish)
  • Limited Edition Illuminating Beads, $29, (review is coming)
  • Limited Edition Power Kiss Lip Gloss, $21, (review is coming)
  • Limited Edition Pink Power Blush, $30, (review is coming)
  • Eye Shine Eye Liner in Vert sarcelle, $19, (I’m reviewing today)
  • Rouge Plumpissimo in Corail Punch, $21, (review is coming)
  • Waterproof Lip Crayon Lip Liner in Soft Coral, $18, (complements the new Rouge Plumpissimo)
  • Limited Edition Nail Lacquer in Power Punch (review is coming) and Power Grey, $13 each

I wanted to kick off my review of the collection by starting with the eyes – because after all, “the eyes have it,” so why not?!

This was my first time using Lise Watier eyeshadow or eye liner products, and I was impressed by both. Let’s check out the Eye Shine liner in Vert sarcelle first!

This liner glided on so easily, it felt like I was putting on one of my trusted liner friends, MAC Cosmetics PearlGlide Intense Eye Liner. The texture is soft and has a metallic effect on the lid.

The green pairs beautifully with the next eye product, Quatuor Pastel Power Eyeshadow Quartet:

The shades – light grey, pale blue, coral and teal green all make for a soft, work-appropriate and feminine eye look. Swatches of the shades, on the left is plain, on the right is wet. Both are over Urban Decay Primer Potion:

And check out this eye look I did with the eyeshadows and Eye Shine. I used the shadows dry, over Primer Potion:

I love how coordinated this eye look was, and how easy it is to put together the shadows for a look. I used the teal green in the outer crease, the pale blue in the inner corner of my eye, the coral all over my lid and the light grey (which looks like a shimmery bone in the palette) to highlight to my brow. I used Vert sarcelle to line my lids.

The look lasted all day over Primer Potion. I also used Maybelline MegaPlush Mascara, my recent holy grail! The shadows, applied with brushes, weren’t as pigmented as I thought they might be, but I didn’t have to work hard at color payoff despite the light tones, which tells me that the point of this palette is the soft, pretty power of the light eye look.

Here’s a look at my overall FOTD, which includes the lipstick, blush and beads:

The day I wore this makeup it was bitter cold outside but I had spring on my face and I felt lovely!
