It may still be Summer, but in the beauty industry, it’s officially Fall. Fall makeup collections have started launching, and I could not be happier about it! Fall and winter collections have always been my favourite, as I have an affinity for warm tones, bronzes, and all things Fall.

For Fall 2018, Lise Watier launched the Haute Nature collection – a collection of new, limited edition and permanent launches with a chic safari/nature-inspired vibe.

The new products launched in the collection are:

I was so excited for the lip balms to launch, as shiny, hydrating lip products are always my go-to. On a daily basis, I usually always opt for a natural looking lip product that is moisturizing and comfortable, with some shine. I rarely wear bold or matte lipsticks on a casual basis – I live in Alberta. We are too dehydrated of a climate for matte lips every day!

The Rundown:

What they are: a hydrating lip balm with sheer colour and a high-shine finish

The price: $23 CAD

The shade range: 6 permanent shades, one limited edition (Haute Nature)

These were definitely a “love at first swatch” scenario. They had the exact amount of colour and shine that I was looking for – not a super intense pigment, but a natural, glossy wash of colour.

These are very similar to the new Marc Jacobs Enamored Gloss Sticks that just launched! I love the Marc Jacobs ones, but I prefer the Lise Watier the colour selection from Lise Watier (not to mention the price difference!)

These feel like butter on the lips. They glide on so smoothly and give your lips amazing moisture and shine. You get the hydration and sheerness of a balm, with the gorgeous shine of a gloss. These are the perfect product to keep in your purse and throw on when needed. You can wear them on their own, or layer it over lip liner or lipstick. Wearing this on its own or over lip liner can give you a really gorgeous natural look. Applying it over a lipstick (like a matte lipstick for example) is a great way to add a touch of moisture and shine!

The packaging is really cool – it’s a click to open applicator! The nature-inspired pattern is limited edition, and then they will come in the standard silver Lise Watier packaging.

I’m pretty obsessed with these. “Ice Cream” is definitely my favourite shade, but “Parfait Glace” and “Pink Lemoncello” are close contenders!

Have you tried these? What are your thoughts on them?

Aurora Collection Cover

I very much wanted to buy this entire collection-the colours are all so gorgeous, and the fact that it’s inspired by the Aurora Borealis made me want it all even more. While I couldn’t afford to buy the entire collection, I did pick up my favourite items:

First, the Aurora Eyeshadow Palette: I fell in love with this palette before I even swatched it. It has a gorgeous selection of shimmery shades, including gold, plum, a warm pink, golden brown, and even a blue. The textures are super pigmented, and are a powder-cream formula.

The Aurora Iridescent Shadow in “Teal”: I was so unimpressed at first with these. But you really do need to use them wet in order to see their true potential. As soon as I tried it with the Metamorfix Liquid Transformer, I fell in love!

As you can see, the Metamorfix – or any liquid transformer, really – makes a HUGE difference.

Blush Fondant Suprême in “Baie”: This is by far my favourite of the cream blush colours. It’s a neutral, soft pink that flatters all skin tones!

LW Cream Blush

Last, but definitely not least, the Celestial Light Powder– this was given to me by the amazingly generous trainer at the Lise Watier Seasonal Training class that I attended! I very nearly cried. It is without a doubt one of the most gorgeous highlighters I have seen or owned. It is the PERFECT highlight for pretty much all skin tones. It’s got a mix of peach, gold, and neutral tones, and a very finely-milled texture to add a glow without excessive shimmer.

Look at that beauty! I could stare at it all day.

I can’t wait to play with these beautiful products!
