A random trip to Naimies yielded the most lovely surprise…
I got the one color that I thought was the most unique.. it’s like a really smokey, silvery version of Chanel’s Illusiore, with twice the staying power.
I tried to take this swatch off… and only the silvery part came off. I had to get makeup remover to wipe away the base color. These are really good. They also come in several other shades, including bronze, green and blue.

I got up bright and early for The Makeup Show this morning… and wanted to put my best face forward. I wanted to go for an orange ‘glow’ (you know orange is my color) without the shine. I blended a highlighter in my foundation, which caused a bit of flashback in the camera, but it looked natural outside in the sun, and under artificial lights in the show.

If the promo pic is any indication ,the Holiday 2011 Collection for Lise Watier is all about shimmer. By the time I saw this collection, most of the goodies were sold out. Not to worry, I managed to score what I think is the crown jewel of the collection: The Golden Lip Gloss.
What’s interesting (and rather awesome) about this gloss is that it has both gold and silver glitter, but it’s encased in a distinctly golden gloss. The glitter is not weird or chunky. It’s actually the best incorporation of glitter that I’ve seen in gloss, in a long time.
Now, I know it looks like the silver sparkles are ‘black’ on my lips, but trust me.. it’s all shimmer and shine. I really love this gloss. In fact, I love it so much that I’m paying it forward in an upcoming giveaway. Details coming… ciao for now!
I wanted to layer shimmers over mattes. So I used matte peach colors, then layered them with a shimmer gold:
