Lise Watier Féline Lip Lacquer in Rouge

New and for just a limited time during this fall season, Lise Watier is introducing their Féline collection. This three-piece collection features a beautiful leopard motif accented in rose gold. I will be posting about the eyeshadow quartet and eyeliner soon, but today is all about the gorgeousness of Lise Watier's Féline Lip Lacquer in Rouge.

Féline Lip Lacquers promise a highly pigmented, long-lasting formula with a matte finish. Rouge is a deep tomato red with neutral undertones. (If you're not convinced by the beautiful red in the swatches below, Féline Lip Lacquer is also available in Nude, a rosy beige.)

I've always been a little wary of matte lip products because they can be drying, which is bad news for extra-dry lips like mine. Happily, I was surprised to find that the Féline Lip Lacquer was very comfortable to wear and not heavy-feeling even on dry, sensitive lips like mine. I also loved that despite the lipgloss-like packaging, it isn't sticky like a gloss at all. I tested this during the summer and was so pleased to be able to wear this driving with the windows down and not end up with a mouth full of hair!

In my collection, Rouge is probably closest to Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Wine With Everything, but Rouge is just a touch deeper and has a matte finish. Wine With Everything has a slight brightness to it in comparison to Rouge.

I love that from the first stroke of the doefoot applicator, I get enough pigmented colour to cover all the discolouration and dark spots on my lips. It can be built up a little for an even more dramatic red. It does wear off a bit from eating and drinking but doesn't disappear completely, so you can be a little lazy and get away with skipping re-application if you wanted to.

Above is how it looks worn a little more lightly than the first photo. I wore this for 6+ hours while doing nails at the Pop-Up Nail Bar at Metropolis at Metrotown's Shopping Night Out--I even got compliments on it! By the end of it, the colour was still hanging on and my lips weren't dried out (my lip line was quite dry, but that's an eczema problem from chatting with lots of people that night.)

I don't even particularly like animal print, but I adore the packaging of the Féline collection. The leopard print has subtle tones and brushstrokes to it in order to more closely resemble a fur texture. And of course, the rose gold finish on the cap is so on point.

Overall, Lise Watier hit it out of the park with the Féline Lip Lacquer in Rouge. The highly-pigmented, deep, neutral red is such a stunner and would suit a wide range of skin tones. I think there is a slight trade-off between comfort and longevity here--usually the super long-wearing, never-budge lip products are more drying. Rouge lasts fairly well but will transfer readily when eating or drinking. Personally, I'm happy with it because it's made me a believer that mattes can play well together with very chronically-dry lips. If you are looking for a fall-perfect lip colour, this is definitely one to check out.
