I intend to buy backups of this. The only other lipliners that I have tried are Annabelle's, Rimmel's, Dior's, Chanel's... From all those this is my fave. Creamy, smooth, honey bun makes a beautiful neutral look, pigmented, fades better than even my Dior ones (cuz they look waxy and uneven as they wear off whereas this seems softer and a more natural, less drying texture). V good no need to get expensive ones when Annabelle's and Essence's are so fab n with a big range of colours b/w them.
This is amazing!! This with my dior powder gives perfect non-fake soft, smooth looking skin. The perfect replacement for my $$$$$$ Omorovicza tinted moisturizer which admittedly clogs my pores and looks patchy on skin-in addition to having zero coverage unless u build it up. . This feels awesome on my dry/combo skin, and i got a perfect colour match- best i've ever had for any kind of base makeup. I am dark yellow in this and it is such an exact match. I really like this, doesn't look fake at all, love it to bits. Obviously it will never be able to compete with very extravagantly priced foundations with the best technology incorporated into them, nanoparticles and microscopic light reflective powders, etc-- but i prefer this to my other foundations right now, with a powder on top.
No offense to 'fans' slash worshippers, but everything Lady Gaga is pathetic, contrived with no substance, and lame, including this fragrance. Monotonous fruity waste of money.
A use for rosewater that hasn't been mentioned here: eye drops. There is a v good quality brand my mom uncle and other ppl in my fam use based on doctor's recommendation- i think arq e gulab by marhaba? Anyway i use it all the time- it stings for a second but it cools and refreshes my eyes v well esp in hotter countries. Also v good as toner. I find it better than the much pricier facial mists and toners that I have tried . Helps moisturizer but on its own too it really soothes and it seems to help retain moisture. i agree with the reviewer who says using this, she woke up to happy glowing skin- same case with me. I wasn't expecting anything either.. As soon as I get a spray bottle I plan to put a lot of it into it as a body mist for summer
Very expensive for what it is, but since I have been using it almost every other day, And the thought of misplacing it makes me break into a cold sweat and hyperventilate, I would probably repurchase. The quality of these e/s is so-so-- by that I mean they all seem to blend together into one basic colour-- also there is fallout with the darkest shade--but they really do look so sexy on my brown eyes, sultry and not overdone... I just love them! Esp with Lise Watier's eyeliner in Cognac used as a base or to line the lower lash line... Or MAC teddy or Guerlain loose kohl in waterline for night. Caveat: you need a good base or primer-- you need to be very careful in your placement because the yummy gold shade easily blends into the others, and gets lost amongst the darker 2, so use a wet brush if you want it to show up properly... I like makeup that's not overdone, but it's hard for me to achieve--this quad makes it very quick and easy.
Omg. I knew I loced the formula of the Colour Intrigue lipsticks, moreso than any other lipstick I've used. But this colour is amazing. It's got bronze/rose/MLbB hue with the perfect gleam of shimmer that does not read as frost at all. Super flattering. The formula is perfect, the colour is elegant, perfect.
It makes my skin kinda irritated/feel hot if I put on any moisturizer, even a simple oil, on top to seal it in. Like, every time. Like I've put a warm compress on, and my skin also itches. My cheeks especially itch. Even if I don't use any skincare on top, my skin does feel irritated for a couple of minutes, but then I'm guessing it evaporates or something? No repurchase because my skin ALWAYS feels a irritated when I use this. Also, apparently my tap water is connected to purified spring water, like most people in my (rural-ish) area, and it supposedly contains lots of minerals! So I'll just use plain water lol
Foundations -Vichy - Dermablend Corrective Foundation

EDIT: tried this with tinted moisturizer and a drop of high beam all over face. looked awesome and natural, great coverage still. . AMAZING! It has a kind of dewy/illuminated finish that i can't describe, if i use it alone. This covered up a scar that NOTHING else was, not my other concealers/correctors/foundations in various combos. AMAZING. And it's not cakey, just perfect. I love this. You just need a smidgen, much more economical than drugstore foundations/concealers that one goes through very quickly due to having to build em up. HIGHLY recommend. I mix this with my No 7 Beauty balm to make it more illuminating for the rest of my face, and to dilute it. To be honest I preferred it just as a concealer You can use this in these ways, or in combo with a foundation you already like, as a concealer. One thing, my primer makes this hard to use. Just on plain, well-moisturized skin is better.
I'm an idiot. These give me scars every time, and on my mom too, I guess we have sensitive skin, but I often forget and use these nevertheless. Sporting a ridiculous facial burn right now thanks to these pathetic things. And yes, i follow the instructions to the letter.
I am actually buying a backup of this today. It's that good, and i'm not a blush person. It looks really natural, the sparkles on the pale flowers come off to reveal a fine shimmer highlight underneath, and when you swirl it together, it lends this pretty healthy glow that is lovely. i love the packaging, of course. I love EVERYTHING by Lise Watier that I own. Love this brand to pieces.
Eyeliner -Lise Watier - Eye Shine Waterproof eyeliner

I have this in Fauve and it's a beautiful shimmery lavender taupe. It is so beautiful. As usual, Lise Watier makes the best eye pencils in the history of ever. Another smashing hit :)
UNEXPECTED TREASURE IN A PINK BOTTLE! This smells beautiful, soft, subtle, reminds me of a gentler version of Dioressence perfume, it absorbs amazingly, it's PINK in colour, it's all around amazing. For the price? This is a must-buy. Great great great. Not as moisturizing as my Korres Body Butter but for general use, it is perfect.
I love these. Got a bunch as a gift and Salsa is my fave. These last well and the colours are so nice. I'm not a nailpolish person, but I would definitely buy these after running out, of Salsa especially.
An okay mask. Doesn't do anything spectacular, that other deep cleansing masks don't/ don't understand why it's priced so high, smells good, maybe that's why.
This is probably one of the best products in the omorovicza line. V expensive and I am undecided whether that price is warranted. However there is no doubt that this is a very soothing, moisturising, and effective product. It actually makes my face look v fresh and peachy about 5 min after application (once it's fully absorbed i suppose). I am very happy with my SAAF serum though
