I'm back with another product of the week, loving this quad from the Lise Watier 2014 Fall Collection, I got mine at Naimies in California while on vacation. Naimies is a great place to find
Lise Watier products among other awesome brands, I will link them down below, and they also
have a great pro discount program that you guys should check out as well. I've been wanting to
more products from the Lise Watier brand and this quad was right up my alley, I have tried a
few products a while back that I got at the makeup show and at duty free while on vacation in
Canada which is where the brand is from for those of you who don't know and so far I have
enjoyed every product including this quad.
The shadows have a great creamy powder texture which is super soft which allows for easy
blending, you can definitely use this quad on it's own as it has a highlight, transition shade, lid
shade and outer V shade to deepen the crease. The lighter shades have a sheen to them which
look almost metallic but none of them have fall out due to the creamy texture. The cranberry
and taupe shades are great they do have a slight sheen to them but nothing crazy, I still feel
the quad can be used all on it's own.
If you can get your hands on this quad I would recommend it, it's excellent quality and the
packaging is so beautiful with the animal print and rose gold, the shadows are heaven. It's a
great quad for the price & quality.There is also more to the collection so I will have links below
so you can check out the rest of the collection if you are interested. I will be posting a face of
the day using these shadows shortly, same with the post before this so stay tuned for those.

Hello my lovelies
I'm back with a new blog post, a possible series for the blog called the product of the week. I will pick a product that I've been enjoying for the week and give you my thoughts it can be an oldie but goodie that you can re-discover or a new product that you can indulge in a new purchase. This week we will begin with one of my favorite brands if not my favorite and that is Smashbox, I'm definitely bias to this brand it's not often at all that I'm let down by any of their products, if it doesn't work for me it will always work in my pro kit. Today I'm talking about the Full Exposure Palette, I purchased mine when it first came out at Ulta but didn't break it open for a couple of months because so many palettes were coming out at the time, I was just trying out so many holiday palettes and was so sure I was going to love my Smashbox palette. In that time I was reading and hearing mixed reviews about the palette, some people loved it and others were disappointed saying it wasn't pigmented enough or that the matte row was great but the shimmer row was lacking, so I thought I really need to use my palette so I can know for myself so I took all that into consideration and cracked open my palette which comes with a deluxe size Full Exposure Mascara and a double ended brush one side to pack on those shimmer shadows & one to buff in those matte shadows.
14 Neutral Shades
Nudes to Blacks
Top Row - 7 Shimmers
Bottom Row - 7 Mattes
My Final Thoughts :
I personally love this palette, I find the shadows to be creamy and velvet smooth the mattes blend like heaven, the only one that was a bit dryer than the rest is the black but nothing that I couldn't work with as for the shimmers I haven't had any problems with the pigmentation, I use a Mac 242 to pack on the color or a Mac 252 for larger areas, I also use my fingers if I'm feeling like I'm not getting what I want from the shade to pack on the color, just like I would with a Mac pressed pigment and the shadows go on so beautiful and every time I use this palette I get compliments, I have used it on clients and they always ask about the palette and end up telling me they are going to get it or that they have it and are now going to use it more because they now know what to do with it. I definitely recommend it especially since it was made to help suit everyone's eye shape and I think it really does that. There is an Eye Shape Chart that comes with your palette as well, which is very helpful.
I will link below where you can purchase the palette, I will also link below Smashbox's youtube channel so you can check out the many videos they have using this palette with your different eye shapes which is very helpful, I have posted below their video showcasing "HOW TO FIGURE OUT YOUR EYE SHAPE" so be sure to check it out.
I have also posted swatches below so make sure you check those out as well :)

Hope you enjoyed the FOTD above, I'm hoping to be doing more of these for you guys going forward. I'm really loving and enjoying the products that I got from this collection. Below are the 3 products that I picked up, if you want to see swatches and hear my review & thoughts I have also linked my youtube video for your viewing, so be sure to check it out. There are close up photos below of the products I purchased, I'm very happy with the shadows especially but that's not much of a surprise as we all know MAC shadows usually don't disappoint. There are 6 shadows from the perm line and 9 new shadows which I think is pretty good especially for the price of $85 which is less than their regular pre-made palettes of $100, that makes the shadows only $5.67 a piece which is a great price, even less than the Makeupgeek shadows :) I will leave you at that as your food for thought and make sure you check out my video for the rest of the review and swatches. If you have any questions please feel free to leave comments in the comment section above or in the comment section in the video.
