Today I have the two eye shadow palettes from the Lise Watier's Arabesque Holiday 2016 collection to share with you.
The packaging is stunning and very appropriate for the festive season, white with golden detailing that give the products a special touch. Each palette encases five generous sized shadows embossed with a similar detail features on the packaging.
Isadora is the warm palette in the collection and it features five stunning shades. Across the board all shades are extremely creamy and buttery that tend to kick up quite a it a product given that the formula is so rich and pigmented. All shades swatched beautifully and tack a punch in the pigmentation department with the exception of the middle peacy shade which seems to have a quieter base but very apparent silver shimmer which makes me want to use this shade packed on the lid as a topper.
Coppelia is the cool palette in the collection and it also features five cool tuned shades.The formula is again very buttery and pigmented and swatches beautifully. The middle shade much like the warm palette has a soft bask with that lovely silver shimmer.
Overall I like the creamy, rich formula on these shadows, they are easy to blend and feel so luxurious to the touch while packing a punch in the pigmentation department. These shadows will benefit from a silicone based primer, something with a slip that will allow the formula to glide on nicely. The middle shades would work best with a tackier base and used as a topper shade as they don;t seem to have the same grip as the other shades and that strong shimmer needs to shine on all on its own. I can see these palettes as being great for the holiday season, they are festive and the color range is absolutely stunning, if enjoy rich, creamy, buttery shadows then you might want to run to your drugstore and snatch these one or both of these beauties.
