I’ve never been to Bora Bora, but I have an idea of what it might look like. Like this, right?
Let’s pretend this is Bora Bora.
This was taken in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica actually. But you know, all white sand beaches with sparkling aqua waters look alike.
Lise Watier’s summer collection, called Bora Bora, brings us a few vibrant Duo Eyeshadow & Glitters ($25 each) that take me back to my tropical vacation two years ago.

From top to bottom: Lise Watier Duo Shadow & Glitter in Golden Wasabi, Blue Ray, Wild Orchid
The flip top cap reveals a mirror and a cream eyeshadow in a pot. The complementing coloured glitter screws out of the bottom with a sifter.
- Golden Wasabi is a lime green cream eyeshadow with lime green and gold glitters.
- Blue Ray is a turquoise cream eyeshadow with turquoise glitter.
- Wild Orchid is a bright violet with a mix of pink, violet and turquoise glitters.

I really like the idea of having a cream eyeshadow and loose glitter packaged together. As any Glitter Geek would know, loose glitter can get everywhere without a proper base, and these cream eyeshadows actually make a great sticky base for these glitters. The cream eyeshadows can be applied sheer with one swipe, or built up to be more opaque without any issues. They dry just slightly tacky to get the glitters to stay in place.

You might be asking, what do you use to pat glitter on your lids? You could use your fingers, or if you want a more precise application, the Glitter Eyeshadow Brush ($15). It puts down glitter evenly and cleans up easily with a few swipes on a tissue.

Stay tuned for a very glittery look I’m planning for the weekend. It’s been too long since this Glitter Geek has played with some sparkles, and I’m hoping it’ll be every bit as epic as I imagine it in my head, LOL!
Do You Have Any Tropical Vacation Plans This Year?
It’s hot, and I have the beach on my mind! Where are you going, or where have you gone, this year? I’m not going anywhere far this summer, but we are planning for Mexico later in the year. It should be fun!
