Lise Watier celebrates 40 beautiful years!

Last week I had the pleasure of attending an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of the innovative Canadian cosmetics company, Lise Watier.

Founded by former television host Lise Watier, a pioneer in the Canadian beauty world back in 1972, Ms. Watier's critics predicted that her fledgling cosmetics company wouldn't last a month - 40 years later aren't those people eating some serious crow?!

Over the years there have been some popular and stand-out products such as: Portfolio Professional Corrector, Base Miracle Pore Minimizing Primer, Neige Eau de Toilette and their Waterproof Eyeliner - one of which is sold every 3 minutes.

Which got me thinking about when I discovered the wonders of Lise Watier. Not only can I remember the first product I ever bought 15 years ago, I actually still have it! Aloe Active Purifying Gel Mask - there is still a tiny bit left in it and in my usual pack-ratty fashion have been unable to bring myself to throw it out! Don't worry, I don't still use it but there have been lots of other Lise Watier products that have graced (and still do) my bathroom shelves over the years.

Here are a few of my particular faves right now:
Vent du Sud - 50ml EDT - $55, 100ml EDT - $75 - a blend of the sensual, feminine notes of passion flower, jasmine and rose with the warmth of an exotic fruit cocktail and the sweet, hot traces of amber, vanilla and wood-scented musk.

If you are looking for a warm and sexy smelling summer fragrance you want to check this one out!
Feline Mascara HD - $22 - use only if you want high-definition lashes that are ultra-black! Enriched with emollient waxes that pamper and thicken your lashes while the ultra-black pigments add dramatic intensity. With an innovative applicator brush design that features specially cut bristles that separate and lengthen each lash.

I love a mascara that offers length and definition without clumping or flaking and this one totally fits the bill!
Flash Lift Radiance Vials - 7 x 1ml - $27 - a paraben and alchol free serum good for any age or skin type that provides instant radiance, erases signs of fatigue, smoothes the appearance of wrinkles, a longer lasting makeup and gives a cosmetic lift effect.

Absolutely amazing for those days when you need extra radiance due to lack of sleep, overindulgence of whatever or general blah-ness!

  1. Vent du Sud is my favourite! I first discovered it when it was named Bora, Bora. I love it!
