Week 1 of Project Pan 12 and the panning by itself is going great; I like my 12 products and seriously, it makes my life so much easier to know in advance which products to use on a day-to-day basis. Obviously, I didn’t empty any product yet but things are going according to plan. After a week, I find myself loving some and others, not so much. The first item on my list is a fantastic product, maybe unknown to most of you, but it may be time to introduce all its qualities and share this Canadian brand to all my readers.
Note: As always, with any foundation review, I’ve listed my skin type/concerns at the end of this post.
Lise Watier website : $40Cnd for 0.88oz (a little less than the standard 1oz)
Lise Watier is well-known in the province of Quebec since the founder herself is from our little part of the country. To support Mrs. Watier and her company, all our major retailers and most of our drugstores carry the brand. Also widely available in France, Belgique and US via Naimie’s, Beautylish and some other retailers.
Note: Lise Watier is now owned by Groupe Marcelle
The Teint Lumière foundation offers ultra-light and adjustable coverage. In addition to its exceptional comfort, this foundation is like an invisible second skin – undetectable even in the light of day. Formulated with the Diamond Lumière Complex, it blends into skin to even out and illuminate the complexion while protecting it from the sun. The dropper dispenses a specifically measured quantity of the formula for optimal efficiency. The equivalent of one pump is sufficient for the entire face.
Paraben-free. Fragrance-free. Oil-free.
✰ Available in 12 shades,
✰ One pump is truly sufficient for an entire face, so a little goes a long way!
✰ Light to medium coverage (personally, full coverage is not flattering for my skin; I feel like it ages me and I don’t really aim for that result when I use makeup!!!),
✰ Doesn’t break me out!
✰ The finish is soft and lustrous without ever looking greasy (I do have to blot once during the day with a setting powder)
✰ Doesn’t emphasize my fines lines or pores,
✰ It doesn’t oxidize,
✰ Long wearing – it only starts to break after 8 hours,
✰ Super lightweight, it feels good on my skin … No cakeyness to report,
✰ This foundation can be mixed perfectly with any other foundation in your collection; it gives a nicer finish to all the dull ones that we unfortunately have in our stash and that sit there, unused,
✰ Made in France,
✰ Lise Watier is a cruelty-free brand.
✰ Only SPF 15 is not enough. When choosing a foundation, I prefer a greater sun protection factor when it’s already included in the product. If insufficient, it serves no real purpose and I’m forced to apply another sunscreen product.
✰ Since it’s a glass bottle, it may not be travel friendly.
Lise Watier Teint Lumière Foundation gives an extremely pure, radiant glow to your skin, perfect if you like a natural finish. The formula doesn’t feel like drying your skin, to clog pores, or cause any breakouts. In fact, it’s the perfect opposite: it surprisingly feels to have a moisturizing effect on the skin. I usually apply this foundation with a beauty sponge but I also tried it with a brush and with my fingers, and the result was still beautiful. From a mature skin point of view, these serum-type formulas are very flattering and again, truly rejuvenating. Is it a buildable foundation? Yes, but it’s made to use for a light/medium coverage.
Will I repurchase? Yes but I should go for the 01 shade instead of 02! I always see myself a bit darker than I really am but I should know better…
My skin type/concern are :
Combination with some dry patches,
I do have fine lines (borderline wrinkles) as I’m over 35,
I suffer from some facial discolouration and sun spots,
I’m VERY acne-prone and I have enlarged pores on the nose and cheeks,
All in all, you could say that my face is a combination of the moon’s surface and an old potato …
Shade = Fair or light
If you add the light skin maybe in the future, call me Mrs. Pringles !!!
