Who loves a little holo? I mean, how can you not? Lise Watier is all about the play of light this spring, as evidenced in their new. limited edition, Urban Velocity collection that just happens to be dressed in holographic gorgeousness. Of course, the insides don't lack appeal either, with a palette of pretty neutral-with-a-twist type shades.

'Dare to break the rules! Influenced by an urban softness and a touch of freshness, Urban Velocity allows our individuality and singular beauty to flourish. In between pop and poetic, the essence of this collection captures a light-hearted spirit and positive energy!' 

Blush first, because... I like. Reason enough, no? The Urban Velocity Blush is a gorgeous little baked blush that combines swirls of neutral pinks and vein of gold that gives the mostly matte shade a soft it of radiance. The formula is very nicely pigmented and blends seamlessly on skin. I know this will be my go-to shade for quite some time.

Eyes get treated to the Urban Velocity Eyeshadow Trio which features three baked shadows. The shades include a pale, pearly pink, a coppery rose-gold shade, and a deep plum. All of the shades have a typical baked texture and shimmery finish, but do work quite nicely together on the eye for a soft, but nicely defined look.

Lastly, a little something for the lips in the form of the Urban Velocity Marble Lipstick. The bullet combines swirls of a deep purple and pink that combine to create a semi-sheer neutral violet shade. I don't think this should have been called lipstick, as the shea butter formula really does feel like a balm on lips (and is really hydrating!) The shade is gorgeous, and perfectly spring, but is on the sheerer side compared to most LW lipsticks, and requires a little building. I also found it's not the longest lasting, but is easily topped up without a mirror.

Overall, this is a really pretty collection. All of the shades will fit into an everyday type of makeup look and don't fall into the cliche spring= pastels equation. I highly recommend the blush, but as a purple lip lover I am really partial to the lipstick too. What do you think? Could your spring looks use any of these products?
