Back in February as I went through my familiar mid-morning team of Facebook, Twitter and checking my Gmail, I saw Lise Watier hosting an online contest for their newest lip gloss. Yes, I know, as a former Beauty Editor and now a freelance beauty writer I really don’t need to win any more makeup, but when it comes to Twitter, I love to play!
So sure enough as instructed I tweeted: @LiseWatier I want #HAUTECOULEUR
And since I was one of the first 5 to tweet this, guess what they sent me this in the mail:
Since I get a lot of lip products sent to me, its easy for me to just chuck it in a box or pass a lip gloss on to a friend, BUT this one is like no other. Here are three reasons why I LOVE my new Lise Watier gloss:
- It’s a perfectly pristine lavender colour that adds a lot of brightness to my face. The shade looks so beautiful when on, plus I can almost wear it with anything. (OK this turned into two reasons, I know!)
- The gloss formula provides the coverage of lipstick, but the moisture of a gloss. Perfect because I prefer gloss over lipstick any day. Here’s a pic of me wearing the gloss on a morning before I went to Fashion Week (excuse the closeup, I took it with my iPad):
- Finally, the applicator brush has a trusty LED light that turns on whenever you unscrew the cap and a small rectangular mirror on the side of the gloss tube. So its easy to do touch ups even when you are out late, or for when you are in the back of a taxi late for a beauty event (of course that never happens to me, but I am just sayin’).
So what are you waiting for go out and grab your own Lise Watier High Coverage Lip Lacquer in HAUTE COUTURE, at $22 it’s a lip gloss worth every penny. Not into purple? The collection includes 1o runway inspired shades from a sexy nude to a rich red, choose your favourite.
Oh and make sure you follow Lise Watier on Twitter @LiseWatier, you never know when you could be the next winner!
