Lise Watier Spring 2013 Pastel Power Collection Pastel Power Illuminating Beads - Review, Pictures, Swatches

Oh goodness! It's an exciting day at the Pink Sith household.  Lise Watier has come out with Pastel Power Illuminating Beads from their Pastel Power Spring 2013 Collection!  Why is this so exciting?  3 reasons:

1) It kinda reminds me of another brand that is famous for offering a finishing powder in bead or ball form.  ::CoughGuerlainMeteoritesCough::

2) The Limited Edition Pastel Power Illuminating Beads are soooo pretty and provide such a lovely shimmer to the skin.

Tarkin. Sure he looks cute here, but he isn't so cute when he steals your makeup

3) My cat, Tarkin, found one that had dropped to the floor and played with it until his paws and nose was covered in shimmery pink powder. (Don't worry I wiped off the powder before he could lick it off).

OK, but let's focus on reason 2 because this is a beauty blog after all and there is plenty of other cat stuff on the interwebz to read about. The Pastel Power Illuminating Beads were created with the idea that one would brush the sides of a fluffy powder brush lightly over the beads, there by picking up the shimmery powder, and transfer that to the skin.  That's how it should be done.

What you should not do is stick your fluffy brush, head first, into the container that holds the beads and swirl it around.  Reason being, the beads will become lodged in the brush, and when you lift the brush from the container, the beads will drop out and fall to the floor.  Then your cat, which you named after Admiral Grand Moff Tarkin from Star Wars, stealthily pounces on the bead and absconds with it. This is the same cat that has figured out how to open your husband's night table's drawer and scoop out the ear plugs he keeps in there.  Even when you put the earplugs in an old prescription bottle, said cat named Tarkin took the entire bottle and played with it throughout the house.  What I'm actually saying is, These beads when improperly applied are not cat proof.

There are three shades of these shimmery powder pearls. Peach, Light Pink and Green.  Light pink is the most prevalent color followed by peach and then there are just a few green beads in the container.  The result is a sheer, shimmery wash of highlight that can work with any skin tone from cool to warm to neutral.

All three colored beads blended together

Yes. You can go overboard with this product and apply too much.  These beads are NOT a finishing powder like another brand's powder balls.  Therefore, use the beads prudently or else you will end up with a disco ball effect that causes your husband to question your level of taste when eating frogurt in the afternoon sun.  (True story. Mr. Sith asked me if I had started to use a new foundation because my face was looking iridescent and then some back pedaling about how "...it doesn't look bad, it's just different." *eye roll*)

The Lise Watier Pastel Power Illuminating beads come in a small container with a screw top lid.  The container is clear so you can see the product and it comes with a clear inner lid to keep the beads from escaping when you open the container.

Do you NEED this?  Maybe. If you are looking for a new highlighter YES!  If you own cats and don't heed my warning about the application, NO.   The Limited Edition Pastel Power Illuminating Beads retail for $29 USD and are available on the lisewatier.us website.
