Lise Watier does glamour, grace and femininity in their Vintage Moderne Spring 2010 collection!

I am loving Lise Watier's spring collection, inspired by the classic, iconic beauties of the 1950s such as Hayworth, Lake and Deneuve-  it is so soft and pretty!  Palette Vintage Moderne Eyes & Cheeks - $38 - Limited Edition - features four eyeshadows and a blush in an elegant shiny white Art Deco inspired compact.  The palette includes eyeshadows in watercolour green, deep brown, pink-tinged peach and cloud white and a powder blush in Libertine - an apricot peach shade that is flattering to all skin tones.  I like using all of the colours together with just a bit of the deep brown for liner for a very romantic look!

Eye Duo Vintage Moderne - Modern Twist - $25 - Limited Edition duo is composed of a sparkling plum and an anise green with golden highlights in an Art Deco compact. This is a great set if you like a little more punch to your eyeshadow colours.
Eye Duo Vintage Moderne - New Nude - $25 - Limited Edition duo pairs a light beige and a melon pink in an Art Deco compact.
Vintage Moderne Illuminating Face Powder - $32 - Limited Edition - Refresh your dull winter complexion with a subtle golden-beige glow - great for face and cleavage.  The powder is sheer and faintly shimmery but not at all glittery.  These illuminating powders tend to be hit or miss on me because I'm pale and if there is too much bronze pigment I just end up looking dirty - but this one gave me a nice healthy glow so it's a winner!  In the same Art Deco compact as the others.

Vintage Moderne Lip Duo - $18 - Limited Edition - pink with a violet undertone on one side, orangey-hued coral on the other side.  Two shades, two finishes.  Wear each alone or layer the two together for a striking multidimensional look.  Think how much room it will save in your purse by having two lipstick colours in one tube!

Duo Yeux Ombre et Lumiére Eyeshadow & Liner - $20 - a new edition to the regular line.  Thin on one side for lining and thick on the other for shadow application - an ingenious 2-in-1 tool!  The eyeliner side is waterproof and has an easy-glide texture.  The eyeshadow side has a creamy, smooth texture.  Reflective pigments add shine to the colour and the resistant formula helps the colour stay put.  It's available in three colour combos:  Retro Rose - pink shadow and mahogany liner, Glamour Peach - peach shadow and charcoal liner, Timeless Gold - white gold shadow and black-brown liner.
Métal Liner Bronze - $19 - Limited Edition - ultra-metallic formula enriched with coppery micro-glitter.  I love using this liner with the first palette.  It gave it a vintage yet edgy feel.  I especially like the glitter in this one, it's there, but barely noticable so it's fine for day wear if you work someplace more corporate.
Lise Watier is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, The Shopping Channel, The Bay as well as other locations in Canada and various online locations in the US and Europe.  Go here to find out where to buy.

  1. I like the idea of 2-in-1 lipstick, haven't seen anything like that (except for Sally Hansen lip exfoliators) :-)

  2. It's smart right? They had a half gold/half silver one at Christmas that you could use over other lipsticks to change the colour which I thought was so clever! But really, who ever uses up a whole lipstick before you want a new colour, so much less commitment this way!

    Best, Lisamarie
