Product Review: Lise Watier Duo Havana Kiss & Glow

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : Duo Havana Kiss & Glow
Size: 45 ml / 1.5 US fl oz
Price: $35.00 CAD

Available only from May to July, this limited edition Lise Watier product offers 2 products in 1 bottle: a shimmering body gel in the bottom and a shiny lip gloss at the top.

From the press release: "The light, non-sticky and non-greasy texture of the shimmering gel blends into the skin to enhance your sun-kissed glow. Its precious golden glitters leaves skin bathed in shimmering highlights. The gel goes on effortlessly, sparkles all day long and washes off instantly with soap and water. Its delicate aroma is reminiscent of warm summer days with subtle notes of sweet coconut. Use alone for a total luminous look, or blend with moisturizer for a more understated effect. The spatula-applicator is perfect for an easy, mess-free application. The creamy-textured gloss dresses the lips in a warm, shiny hue – a bronze shade that makes for the perfect, natural, sunkissed look..

To Purr About:
- gloss leaves a nice shimmer and a hint of colour
- gloss is light and not sticky
- has a convenient little mirror in the lid
- gel isn't drying
- light, fruity smell is really nice
- gel leaves fantastic sparkles on skin and gives skin a shimmery, almost magical look

Claws Out:
- have to apply the gloss with your fingers (which I always hate to do)
- spatula applicator (for gel) is a little weird to get used to
- spatula spreads on the gel pretty thick, so it takes a little practice to get it right. I ended up plopping some gel on my skin with the spatula, but then I had to spread it properly with my fingers
- after the gel dried and I was moving around, the sparkled inevitably ended up everywhere - on my clothes, couch, etc.

Final Comments:
I love the idea of this product. Two products designed to give you a really "sun-kissed" glow. It's subtle shade and shimmery sparkles really does give you a "magical" look and from every angle, I was, for lack of a better word, sparkling.

So after the messy application (I ended up applying both products with my fingers), I spent several minutes just admiring the effect in the mirror. It really rocks in the sun and would be great for an outdoor party.

However, be warned, as with any other product that "shimmers" I ended up with sparkles everywhere. Which isn't ideal, especially if you plan on wearing anything nice or plan on sitting on anything...
