I don’t know about you, but I am not someone you’d call a makeup junkie. I like beauty products, but when it comes to my own face, my makeup regimen is pretty simple: concealer, eyeshadow, mascara…sometimes a bit of blush and powder, and some lip balm or lip gloss to pull it together.
One product I’ve had a love/hate relationship with for a while now is lipstain. I am not big on lipsticks (reapplying is a bitch), and lipgloss just doesn’t have that pop of color that my face often needs. And though lipstains offer longevity of application, what I really hate about most lipstains is the alcohol that dries out my lips, leaving them chapped and flaky! I’d rather have blah lips with no color than turtle lips. Am I right?
So when I heard that the new Lise Watier Duo Glam Rouge Infini lipstick/lipstain combo didn’t contain alcohol, but was water-based instead, I leaped for joy! Rouge Infini is lipstain on one end (1), and lipstick on the other (2). The lipstain side feels like water gliding on, and has a bit of a sparkle to it. With some lipstick on top, the final result is matte and long-lasting. 1 and 2 – it’s that easy. Two weeks later, and I am happy to report that my lips aren’t dry, and the color stays and stays and stays…all day long. Perfect for a lazy makeup reapplier like me!

Apart from Duo Glam Rouge Infini, Al and I also got to preview another amazing (and multitasking) product – 12 Hrs Glam Flawless Complexion - foundation and concealer duo. It looks just like any other tube of foundation, but there’s a hidden surprise! When you pop open the tube, you see concealer inside the cap, along with a tiny mirror! Genius, no? Perfect for small spaces and small bags!
This foundation is a bit heavier than what I was used to, but I loved how flawless my skin looked upon application. Another great feature of this product is that it truly is long-lasting, as promised. I tend to touch my face a lot throughout the day, and with 12 Hrs Glam foundation, my makeup stayed put…all day long.
Overall, I really enjoyed my first two Lise Watier products, and am definitely a convert! I love how both products offer a 2-in-1 incentive, without cutting any corners. Women had concerns, the company listened, and delivered. La-dee-da. Don’t you just love a happy ending?
