Lise Watier Rivages Summer 2015 Makeup Collection

I don't know about you, but I loooove summer makeup collections! And if there's one that made my heart beat faster lately, it's the new Lise Watier's Rivages Collection! It has launched a few weeks ago and the colors are so pretty!

(Vous parlez français? Cliquez ici!)

24 Hrs Glam Eyeshadows in Chic Glam and Sexy Glam ($23 CAD for 1.4g)
I love these eyeshadows, the formula is creamy and easy to blend! They last all day on me (no creasing or smudging) and they are waterproof. Both shades are very wearable and have a beautiful shimmery finish (Sexy Glam is a bit more sparkly).

Oh and these pencils don't require sharpening, which is always a good thing in my book!

Smokey Kohl Velours in Nude Velours ($21 CAD for 1.2g)
I usually prefer to apply black eye kohl on the waterline because it makes my eyes pop, but sometimes I love to wear a beige eye kohl for a different look. It makes my eyes look bigger and brighter!

I already own a few beige eye kohls but I love this one because it's super creamy, the color is perfect (not too light or pink toned) and it has good staying power!

Magic Lip Colour Enhancer ($24 CAD for 1.3ml)
This lip colour enhancer has a glossy finish like a lipgloss, but hydrate and protect like a lip balm. The formula is lovely, it feels great on the lips and isn't sticky! I also love the mint scent, it's nice to have something different than your typical vanilla or candy scented lip product.

This balm uses the skin's pH level to enhance the natural colour of your lips, on me it gives a beautiful sheer pink! I have to admit that I don't really like the applicator though (it's too rigid!).

 Sublime Lipstick in Amour

 Sublime Lipstick in Ginger

Sublime Lipsticks in Amour and Ginger ($23 CAD for 4g)
Ginger is a light brown and Amour is a light pink, both shades have a cream finish without any shimmers. The formula is creamy without being too oily and both shades are highly pigmented and opaque. They are moisturizing and have great staying power for such a creamy consistency (they last 3-4 hours on me).

Ginger is a bit too brown for me but I love Amour, such a pretty pink!

Rivages Bronzing Powder ($39 CAD for 20g, limited edition)
This bronzer is so pretty!! The color can vary depending of the amount of pink swirls, hence why I swatched it a few times to show you the difference it can make. On me it gives a beautiful sunkissed glow, it has a shimmery finish but it's not glittery.

It's not a dark powder though, so if your skin is already tan it will only add a beautiful sheen on your cheeks.

Blush Fondant Suprême in Shell ($30 CAD for 6g, limited edition)
The texture reminds me of Make Up For Ever's HD Cream Blushes, it's a creamy but very lightweight formula and it doesn't feel greasy on the skin. Shell is a beautiful coral-red with a matte finish, it doesn't have a dewy finish like some cream blush.

The staying power is really good too, it last all day!

Rivages Eyeshadow Palette ($54 CAD for 15g, limited edition)
These eyeshadows are buttery smooth, they almost feel like cream eyeshadows! They have great color payoff and the shades are stunning, it's a must-have if you love neutral eyeshadows! I noticed that the darker shades creased after a few hours, but nothing a good primer can't fix.

If you can only afford one thing from this collection, this is what you need to buy!

    1. I think it will look good on darker skin tones, but it might look grey if the skin has a strong olive-golden undertone.
