Lise Watier Loose Mineral Shadow: Review

This is Lise Watier's "Coulleur Folle Mineral Loose Powder Eyeshadow"  in the color Folie Douce. Folie Douce is a very shimmery bronze pink.
They really couldn't have made a more unnecessarily longer name. Anyways, the Lise Watier website describes this as "an eyeshadow that gives you a soft and natural finish, and a richer, more glamorous look just by playing with the intensity."
They couldn't have been any more spot on! These eyeshadows are very pigmented and extremely easy to blend. Now, don't get me wrong, I like using it dry, but when it is used as a wet shadow, the color intensity multiples by 100! It turns in to a fast drying, stay-put cream shadow. It could work wonderfully as an eyeliner as well.

The packaging sucks. They do NOT travel well, which is unfortunate because I can't bring it along if I need to touch up! :(
I brought this eyeshadow out once, and the shadow ended up everywhere.

There are better eyeshadows out there for the value, as these retail $18 for 2grams, while MAC's pigments are 7.5 gms for about $22 Cdn.

Overall Rating: 8.5/10

They are jam packed with shimmer, so if you're not sown for sparkle, I suggest you skip this one!
