I recently posted a FOTD using this quad, click here to view. Here is a quick overview of what to expect with the Lise Watier Aquarella Spring 2012 Eyeshadow Quartet:
Description: Four eyeshadow shades in this season's trendy colours: pastel pink,m soft gold, purple and blue. With a texture that is half cream and half powder, these eyeshadows are easy to use and ensure a long-lasting, silky finish. Presented in a lovely limited edition case.
Directions: Apply the more subtle colour as a base on the entire eyelid or to highlight the brow line. This lighter shade is great to blend in the medium shades and to multiply the shimmer effects or to control the intensity level. For the finishing touch, the darker hue is used as the accent shade.
Ingredients: Talc, Mica, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Caprylyl Methicone, C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cetyl Dimethicone, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol. +/- Dimethicone, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77007 (Ultramarines), CI 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide), CI 77742 (Manganese Violet), CI 75470 (Carmine).
I absolutely love the shades in this palette and think this will be perfect for the spring. The four shades are richly pigmented and extremely silk to the touch. The eyeshadows are a hybrid between cream and powder and you can definitely feel the difference. These are not powdery at all. They almost apply like a pigment because they are so rich. Each shade has a sheen to it and none of the colours are matte.
For the FOTD, I used the colours as they described in the information pamphlet that came with the quad. The only difference, I blended mine together to make a seamless gradient of all four colours. Normally I wouldn't use such a vibrant colour as a highlight, but the gold can go on very sheer if used sparingly. I love that the colours are buildable and EXTREMELY easy to blend. These honestly are effortless to work with and I find creating a look using colour can sometimes be difficult, but this quad makes it fool proof. Lise Watier never fails me with their quality and this quad is no exception. If you are looking for vibrant, richly pigmented pastel shades for the spring, definitely look into this palette because it is well worth the $36 price tag.
Not only is the product high quality, but the packaging itself is extremely well crafted. I think the design is beautiful on the front. The compact feels quite hefty and has a sold weight to it. It feels very welled made and durable. There is also a mirror encompassing the entire lid inside.
