Do not expect miracles over night with this product. At first I was disappointed with it especially given its cost, however after having finished the bottle (approx. two to two and a half months of daily use) I have noticed a rather remarkable difference. I put a moisturizer over this and use at night. The lines that run from my nose to my mouth, and mouth to chin are much less prevelant than …Read more

HG. Replaced MAC Powerpoint for me-hands down. There's no comparison between the two. The Lise Watier comes in a much wider selection of colours, it last and lasts and doesn't smear and it's easy to put on. I puttin first thing in the morning and 14 hours later there is little change. Really impressed. And I love that this is one company that has stayed Canadian.

Sep/25/2015

Lise Watier's 24hr glam eyeshadow has become my HG overnight. I was so impressed with the first shadow I bought, I purchased two more the next day. I use the deep inky blue (there is an irradescence to it) as a liner, the bronze which another reviewer has indicated as more of a taupe on my lid, or if I want a very simple look the satin glam. This latter shadow brightens the eyes but …Read more

Blackberry Splash

Cons - tube applicator is a bit messy and not easily applied without a mirror. Smell - this one is a caramel/overly sweet smell. I prefer MAC's vanilla scented gloss by comparison. Finally it doesn't wear for very long before the colour fades. That said...

Pros- lovely plummy colour, incredibly moisturizing even after the gloss appears to have …

Jan/06/2012

Given that I am on my second jar and am a bit of an addict for eye concealers, Erase Paste has become my HG eye product. The one thing I would not leave the house before applying.

It's creamy and smooth, easy to apply with the MAC concealer brush. Once on it stays put. I had been using Bo-ing but found the consistency too thick. Erase Paste is a creamier, lighter formula that …

Jan/06/2012

Beyond impressed... Picked up Limitless eyeliner in Indigo and Violet and love both colours. It doesn't go on as smoothly/softly as I would like, so I gave the liner a quick blast from my hair dryer to soften it a bit before applying and it went on more easily.

Once it was on, I found it wore well, didn't smudge or flake off. I use eyecream and sunscreen which often causes …

Love this product. However - one thing to note, other reviewers here have said it doesn't moisturize their eye area. This is not the intent of the product. It's best used in combination with a moisturizer as a sealant.

I have always had problems with dark circles, bags and puffiness, so have tried many products from expensive to less so. I tried this product grudgingly …

Love Love Love
A boost of volume for my fine hair and texture at the same time. It does feel as though you have product in your hair, but it works, and is pliable for re-styling throughout the day. It is also buildable without residue or flaking. SDM had a half price sale ($4) so I stocked up! Just LOVE this stuff. Oh and I actually like it better than the Aveeda product at $32 for less …

This is a review both for the cream version and the tinted version. Although the tinted version gives you immediate colour and is easy to apply because the tint tells you if you have missed a spot, I do not like how sticky it feels, or how it seems to settle on your skin. Your skin doesn't actually seem to absorb it, so instead it actually is like a layer of colour over your skin. This …Read more
