When a place is so beautiful it has to repeat its name, there is a pretty high standard for anyone who tries to capture its vibrancy in a makeup collection. Bora Bora has been on my travel wishlist for years but the closest I am getting to this paradise on Earth is by indulging in Lise Watier’s new summer collection.
Bora Bora is renowned for its pristine beaches, jewel toned water, and luscious vegetation. There isn’t a more inspiring color palette for summer than its natural beauty and Lise Watier’s execution is something to celebrate. My two favorite products from this collection are the makeup palette and the perfume.
Bora Bora Eyeshadow Palette
Confession: I bought this without even swatching it. The colours are gorgeous and perfectly complimentary so when I saw that it was that the same formulation and design as the Jingle Belle palette, it was a no brainer. My thoughts on the pigmentation, texture, finish, and payoff of these shadows is the same as the Jingle Belle palette, so for the sake of not sounding redundant you can read my review here. I will say that I love the consistency of Lise Watier products.
