It has been a while since I’ve done an eyeshadow review, 2 years! That is insane! I guess I’ve be wearing eyeshadows less as I have eyelash extensions on. But I’m excited to show you a new palette that I’ve been playing around with. In this post, I’ll be sharing my review of the Lise Watier Metropolis Eyeshadow Palette and showing you two fall appropriate looks.
Name: Lise Watier Metropolis 6 Colour Eyeshadow Palette
Shade: 6 colors with matte, satin and metallic finishes
Price: $49 CAD
The Lise Watier Metropolis Eyeshadow Palette comes in a sleek rectangular compact with a full size mirror inside. On the outside, the color shifts from teal to purple and changes as the light catches it differently. The compact has a decent weight to it. It’s a plastic case although it looks a bit like a metal case.
The brand calls this a cream to powder formula which allows for a long-lasting hold. Although Lise Water says you can apply with fingers, I always used these with an eyeshadow brush. I do find that these are pretty well pigmented. For an every day look, these shadows are fantastic formulas. We tend to associate really strong pigmentation to quality but it’s actually hard to use for beginners. I prefer medium pigmentation especially for an every day look and these shadows are fantastic formulas.
The formulas are definitely creamy to the touch and I really like the sheen on the purple shades. It’s very flattering and the color lasts well on my lids.
There is 1 matte shade and 5 shimmer shades in this palette. The 2nd, 4th, and 6th shade are the types of colors I would gravitate towards. With mid tone shades like those, I find I can use these all over the lid or blend them together. However, it’s a bit harder to create unique looks as those 3 are so similar.
It’s really fun to have the blue shade which actually reflects a lot of purple. The icy silver shade is fun too but it is very cool toned. I haven’t been using the matte shade as it’s too light on my skin.

For a very typical every day look, I used shades 2, 4, and 6. This is totally the type of shades I would normally wear although I can create this with many other palettes I own. I used shade 2 all over, 6 in the crease and patted 4 in the center for a bit of shine.
The more fun look I created is focusing on shades 3 and 5. I used 4 all over the lid as a cool toned base. Then I applied 5 in the center and patted on the color so it really pops. I blended 3 out in the outer corner and as you can see it gives off a purple vibe. Lastly, I used a liner brush and used 3 on my lower lash line. I thought this was a very edgy and creative color while still being wearable.
Overall Thoughts – Lise Watier Metropolis Eyeshadow Palette
I’m very happy with the quality of the shadows and it definitely lives up to it’s claims. You can create some wearable looks and also got the fun pop of blue. I would have wanted that matte shade to be a bit darker and possibly a bit more variety in the mid tone shades. But overall, it’s a solid compact eyeshadow palette that wears nicely on the lid.
