Lise Watier Blush Crème Satin in Rose Eden Review, Photos, Swatches

Saturday, June 07, 2014

Oh, man. I'm just going to tell you right now: if you like blush, heck, if you even have a minor interest in blush, you need this. The Lise Watier Blush Crème Satin in Rose Eden ($24 CAD, 9 g/.31 oz), part of the Eden Tropical Summer 2014 Collection, is something else; something extraordinary in the world of blush.

The Blush Crème Satin comes housed in Lise Watier's trademark silver box packaging. I love the simple, clean but elegant aesthetic of it, but what's inside is even better:

The blush is in a weighty (but not heavy) transparent glass jar with a black screw-on lid, with the Lise Watier embossed on the front. Definitely a pretty staple for your vanity!

The Blush Crème Satin in Rose Eden may look like your typical pink cream blush, but it is so much more. The formula is silicone-based, but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin, nor does it pill up when blending. It pretty much feels weightless, and it can be easily built up for more intensity. I generally use my fingers to apply one or two layers. You really only need a dab or two from the pot to deliver a perfect pink glow to the cheeks, so I can see this jar lasting a long time.

In the above swatch, I've swiped just one layer with my finger (about as much as I'd apply to my cheeks).

Above, I added more product on to the blended swatch. You can get a pretty intense colour payoff with this blush, so it should work for most skintones.

The Blush Crème Satin lasts well on my skin, though I do notice some fading over the course of a few hours (note I have combination/oily skin, and my testing was done mostly using only moisturizer and foundation). I could see the blush lasting all day over a primer and with built-up intensity (and you could also layer a powder blush over it), but it works well for touch-ups.

I've been reaching for this so much lately, over any other blush! It adds such a lovely glow to the skin. If you've ever had misgivings about cream blush, this is the one to try -- no stickiness, no heaviness, no pilling; just a beautiful formula in a flattering shade that can be built up if you desire more intensity. I have pretty much nothing bad to say about the Blush Crème Satin in Rose Eden, only that I hope it becomes permanent!

You can purchase the Blush Crème Satin in Eden Rose at  (along with another shade, Coral Paradise. LW ships to both Canada and the US), and at Shoppers Drug Mart. I believe the Eden Tropical Collection is only available until the end of July, so get crackin' if you haven't tried out this lovely blush yet!
