Watier Cosmetics

Lise Watier was always determined to establish her own cosmetics company after growing up as the daughter of French immigrants in Montreal. Beginning her career as an aspiring model but eventually gravitating toward makeup and skincare products instead, leading her eventually to start her own brand in 1972.

Her company has grown into one of the premier prestige cosmetics firms in Canada, known for producing innovative and beautiful products such as Portfolio Professional Correctors and Neiges perfume.

Recently, Watier changed their brand to reflect findings from consumer research conducted on behalf of their company. Their new messaging emphasizes embracing ageing rather than trying to avoid it.
