I feel like I'm still holding onto summer, and we are already almost through with fall, aren't we!? For fall 2015, Lise Watier has brought out a new collection called EYEvolution, featuring a line of eye makeup products from shadows, a mascara, to a palette quad.
Lise Watier Extreme Hold CC Eye Primer - $27 cad
This eye primer has a smooth tip applicator, but I still prefer to apply it with my fingers. The texture is dry but creamy and dries instantly on the lids. After 12+ hours of wear my eyeshadow is typically only a little creased, but my eyelids do not show as much oil as they do with other primers I use (Urban Decay, Too Faced) but also colour payoff on top of this was not as intense.
This primer does work well and also hides any discolouration of colouring on the lids. The only problem with this eye primer is that the shade is a bit dark. If you have fair skin you might find this tints your lids a bit too dark. I would definitely give this a try if you aren't a fan of typical tube eye primers.

Lise Watier Ombre Velours Supreme Eyeshadow - $25 cad
The Ombre Velours Supreme Eyeshadow range contains six shades -which are all matte! I have here the Vanille Velours and Sable Velours. There is a peach shade, and a few darker mauve and brown shades as well. I adore the shade selection they have for these shadows! Because these are in little pots I just get so excited as they remind me so much of MAC's Paint Pots. The texture is different though, this being a little more velvety with a cream to powder finish. The formula actually contains Labrador Tea extracts for long wear. As much as I find these shadows so fun to use they did not wear as long as I liked on their own, but did work a little better with the Extreme Hold Cc Eye Primer.

Lise Watier Intense Waterproof Eyeliner - $22 cad
These liners look so luxurious, I couldn't get over their gorgeous gunmetal caps. They do perform well and I prefer to use them on my waterline. They go on very smoothly. I have sensitive eyes and I have no problem wearing this on my waterline. Espresso looks almost black on the eyes and Blackest Black is the darkest shade. They work very well on top of the Ombre Velours Eyeshadows but I had a bit of trouble applying the black on top of the Eyevolution Palette shadows.

Lise Watier Eyevolution Quartet Eyeshadow Palette - $37 cad (Limited Edition!)
This palette is beautiful, compact, and has an easy magnetic closure. It contains 4 shades, all being quite shimmery. The pink shade was a little disappointing for me, it isn't strongly pigmented and was very faint on my lids. The second taupey-gold shade is ideal as a base. The purple shade is my favourite, it showed up well and was easy to apply. The last shade is somewhat of a gunmetal dark grey, and it also worked decently well on the crease.
Lise Watier Dramatique Intense 3D Volume Mascara in Noir - $24 cad (Limited Edition!)
The brush is shaped as a tear drop to be able to define lashes in 'three dimensions and get maximum volume'. I couldn't give this a proper testing because I typically only wear waterproof mascaras (straight eyelash problems). I do find the brush a bit too large but otherwise the formula seems good if only they had a waterproof version!
