Can we just start this post off by saying that Lise Watier has done it yet again! Lise Watier’s Eden Tropical Summer 2014 Collection is simply gorgeous. Every single season for many years now, we have looked forward to seeing what new collection they will launch. The anticipation of what the colours will be, what the packaging will look like, what new goodies they’ll come out with. We’re like 2 kids at Christmas!
If you follow our blog you may already know that we happen to be
big huge fans of the Lise Watier brand. (You can read a little more about our love for Lise Watier here and here.) Lise Watier has always been one of our favourite makeup lines for many reasons. Their products are are always new and innovative, high-quality & long lasting. But the main reason we adore them? Their products actually work and that’s the main thing all us girls are looking for when it comes to makeup right?!
We couldn’t not talk about their latest collection Eden Tropical and wanted to share our thoughts on some of the products..
This Limited Edition Eden Tropical Summer Collection was inspired by a tropical oasis. The packaging is bright and exotic and will make you want to book a tropical vay-cay asap! Both the eyeshadow & bronzer compacts are covered with a stunning floral print. (Pictured above is the top cover of the Eden Tropical Bronzing Powder).
This beautiful Two-In-One Bronzing Powder and Blush is the perfect must-have summer compact. You can use the peach center shade for your cheek bones and use the darker bronzing powder as an accent/contour (as Laura did in photo below). Or you can use it blended together and apply it allover for that beautiful sunkissed look. The bronzer isn’t very dark/pigmented which is great if you are weary of using bronzers and are looking for a really pretty, natural finish. Natasha is usually not a big fan of bronzers but she actually loves this bronzer and has been wearing it daily since we got it.

Ombre Souffle Supreme Eyeshadow in Wonderland.
Besides the added bonus that this eye shadow contains their exclusive Labrador Tea Extract (which is an antioxidant), it is very pigmented. What you see is what you get. The colour is true, goes on smooth and blends easily. The best thing about the eyeshadow? Its staying power. They are not exaggerating when they called this eye shadow ‘long lasting’! No need for applying a primer either. I have been wearing a light sweep of it on my eyelids daily and it literally lasts all day. No creasing and no disappearing after a couple of hours. The eyeshadows are soft and have a nice air-whipped texture. So beautiful!
The Hydra Kiss Colour Balm in Coral Paradise is non-sticky, hydrating & translucent with just a hint of colour. Great for those hot summer days when you want something light textured & easy. It also has a retractable tip which we love – No sharpening needed. There are 2 lip colours available in the Eden Tropical Collection. The other is a light pink shade called ‘Rose Eden’.

These 2 products are not apart of the Eden Tropical Collection but we thought we’d include them anyway as they are both products that we really love and have repurchased many times over the years.
We really can’t say enough good things about the Professional Portfolio Corrector, (pictured on the left). It’s the #1 concealer in Canada for a reason. It is like your own ‘little secret’ weapon for hiding and disguising any blemishes and under eye circles/darkness. The Portfolio Corrector is a high coverage concealer/correcting palette that contains 5 different concealer colours. It provides intense concealing and uses color theory to neutralize imperfections. It’s incredibly soothing and is 100% paraben-free.
Colours in this palette:
- Ivory for hiding undereye circles
- Brown for correcting and sculpting
- Lilac for adding radiance and brightening
- Yellow Beige for hiding veins and dark circles
- Green for counteracting redness
The Solution Double Dual Phase Eye Makeup Remover (pictured on the top right) is fragrance-free, gentle and removes all eye makeup.. even waterproof mascara. We love it because it also soothes and hydrates the eye area.
Lise Watier’s Eden Tropical Collection is available in stores now and will be sold until July. You don’t want to miss out on this Collection!
