The one product that comes to mind when I think of Lise Watier is their Portfolio Professional Correctors Palette ($31 CAD). I see it practically everytime I stop by the beauty section of my local Shoppers Drug Mart, and I’ve always been curious about it! Available in three varieties; the Correctors, Correctors Beige and Correctors Dark Skin (not shown here; this one is available online only).
Each palette is about the size of an average bronzer, and contains five different concealers, partitioned into wedges with a screw-top lid. These palettes are great to have on hand as a professional makeup artist for sure, but even for everyday use, I’ve found that I use 3-4 different shades at once!
The Lise Watier Portfolio Professional Correctors Palette is more of a ‘correcting’ palette, with a couple correcting shades for intense concealing (using color theory to neutralize imperfections). This palette is definitely harder to use, because you need to use very little product if you’re using a lilac or green shade in order to maintain a natural-looking finish. I don’t find that I reach for this palette too much, but its great to have for those serious skin issues.
The palette contains:
- Ivory for hiding undereye circles
- Brown for correcting and sculpting
- Lilac for adding radiance and brightening
- Yellow Beige for hiding veins and dark circles
- Green for counteracting redness
The Lise Watier Portfolio Professional Correctors Beige Palette has become a total must-have for me! It’s great for light to medium skintones, and like I said before, I usually use 3-4 colors on a daily basis. It’s definitely a more ‘advanced’ way to conceal, but the subtle changes in undertone and shade can really help to perfect your complexion.
The palette contains:
- Beige Naturel, the lightest yellow-based shade
- Beige Café, the darkest neutral shade
- Beige Rosé, a light pink for brightening and highlighting
- Beige Pêche, a light neutral for concealing all over
- Beige Beige, a mid-tone, yellow-based shade
There is a bit of a learning curve for using these concealer palettes, but once you have it down and know what shades look best where (I like using Beige Rosé & Beige Pêche under the eyes to brighten and conceal and Beige Naturel & Beige Beige to conceal blemishes on the face), it’s easy and quick. You can also mix shades to find your perfect match.
The formula is a full-coverage, hard and dry cream (very similar to MAC Studio Finish). It works really great for concealing blemishes, scars, redness on the face and looks undetectable when blended into the skin (I like using the Sigma P82 brush). It lasts all day on me, especially when set with a transluscent powder.
Some may find it a little too drying under the eyes, and it definitely is for me so I start off with my beloved MAC Pro Longwear to conceal, then I add a bit of the light pink shade just on the darkest parts of the shadows and it really helps to brighten!

- Overall: I think these palettes are fantastic for makeup artists and everyday use! I get a lot more use out of the Beige palette, because I don’t use color correctors very often. I love how they can be mixed to create the perfect shade, and the formula itself is super long-wearing and full-coverage (although it can be a bit drying).
