Are You A Pale Princess? Here Are Lise Watier Duo Mineral Eyeshadows in Misty Green At Your Service.

When I received this eyeshadow duo as part of Lise Watier’s Fall collection, I instantly thought it’ll look stunning on light skin.  My makeup-obsessed friend Sabina shares her thoughts on this duo on today’s post. 🙂

Lise Watier Duo Mineral Eyeshadows in Misty Green

Finding eyeshadows that I like and don’t hate my eyes has always been difficult to do.  I bought MAC eyeshadows in the past, and was always happy with how they performed, but not with how they treated my eyes.  The shadows always left my eyes dry, irritated and just overall a mess due to eczema.  This makes it difficult for me to do dramatic evening looks.  I was so thrilled with this Lise Watier Duo Mineral Eyeshadows in Misty Green ($25) because it’s so lightweight, but the color shows up so well because of the high pigmentation.

The shadows don’t have any sparkles in them, rather they are more metallic/shimmer looking.  I wear the light green side as a soft highlighter in the tear ducts and on the brow bone, and even on its own all over the lid.  It blends so effortlessly.  I am in love with the dark green/grey colour from this duo.  It shows up amazingly well with my pale skin.  If you want a more subtle look, you can use less.  But if you want a more dramatic evening look, you can build this shadow up to give a nice pop to your crease, and to give definition to the eye.  The texture of the shadows allow for effortless blending; it feels like silk on the skin.

I had this shadow on for about 5-6 hours, and it stayed put throughout the whole night.  I wore them to a dinner function, and then had a hot/humid/sticky subway ride home and the shadows didn’t budge one bit.  There was no creasing at all, which I was totally surprised and happy with.  The staying power of this duo was absolutely amazing.

Here’s a look I created using the eyeshadows.  This whole look took about 7 minutes to complete (on both eyes).

Get the Look

I put on Clinique cream shadow in Canvas-Light all over the lid and up to the brow bone. I used the lighter green all over the lid, up to the brow bone and in the tear ducts. I applied the darker green shadow in the crease of my eye, and half way through the lid, blended really well to ensure there were no evident lines. I took the dark green shadow all the way through the lower lash line, only to meet the lighter green shadow by the tear duct. I blended the two together, added Annabelle Black Khol Liner on the lower lash line, tightline, and smudged on the top lash line. I finished it off with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara on upper and lower lashes.

I really fell in love with this duo.  It definitely did not disappoint.  My eyes are so hard to please because they are so sensitive, but these shadows did the trick.  I definitely recommend this duo to anyone who has sensitive skin. If you can’t find colours that compliment each other, Lise Watier has done it for you.

Pretty Colours, Eh?

Aren’t these colours so pretty on her light skin tone? I gotta be honest, I’m kinda jealous (just a little). I think it’ll look all sorts of wrong on my tanned skin, but if you’re a pale princess, give it a try!

  • Wow, didn’t expect it to look that good looking at it in the pan! Amazing!

    • Yes, Annie, I was pleasantly surprised as well. 🙂 Do you have any colours like these? I think they’re quite unique.

  • Looks beautiful! Reminds me a bit of the Armani Jacquard #1 palette but the formula actually looks better. I’m not finding these shades flatter me though. I really need to try some Lise Watier.

    • Do have a look at Lise Watier! The quad from the collection (reviewed here) is really top notch.
