Release your inner artist and become your own canvas
Unleash your creativity, spontaneity and individuality with the new Lise Watier Expression 2015 Spring Collection. This season get swept away in soft pastels in pink, yellow and teal, with 4 limited edition pieces and 5 new shade selections from some of their best sellers.
Lise Watier Palette Expression Eyeshadow is a limited edition springtime palette that comes in a sleek, mirrored compact with stunning watercolour artwork on the front and a full size mirror on the inside lid. It features 5 soft, yet vibrant, shades in a cream-powder formula with both a semi-matte and iridescent finish. Each shade applied evenly, smoothly and has absolutely no fallout. Like all Lise Watier cream-powder shadows, they’re not extremely pigmented, but are buildable and blendable without being chalky or powdery. Although these may look extremely bright in the compact and somewhat intimidating, they apply much sheerer and are much more wearable. It creates the perfect light, airy, springtime look that can easily take you from day to night, thanks to the darker grey shade. It has the perfect variety of light and darker shades, allowing you to create soft, subtle daytime looks or add the darker grey shade for depth and to smoke the entire look out for nighttime. This is a beautiful palette, not only in design, but the shadow shades are very feminine and go extremely well together. It retails for $42.
Lise Watier Expression Blush Trio is also limited edition and comes in the same sleek, watercolour compact as the Expression Eyeshadow Palette. It features 3 subtle iridescent shades of brown, rose and orange that blend and work beautifully together to create a healthy, radiant glow. Of course, each shade can be used on their own to create different looks. Try using the brown along the hollows of the cheekbones, to add structure and definition to the face, the rose on the apples of the cheeks, for a healthy glow or the orange on the temple, to illuminate the complexion. All three shades will look equally as beautiful on all skin complexion and can easily be built up for more intense colour payoff. It has little to no fall out, isn’t chalky or cakey and stays put the entire day without fading. It retails for $38. Also don’t forget to pick up Lise Watier Multifunction Powder Brush for easy and effortless application. It retails for $35.
Lise Watier Ombre Souffle Supreme has to be one of my fave eyeshadows to date. It has a cream, powder, mousse formula in a clear glass jar that couldn’t be easier to apply. Its thin, air-whipped, creamy formula provides medium pigmentation that’s extremely blendable with only the use of your fingertip. Just in time for spring is the new Fairy Pink with an iridescent, luminous finish. It, of course, contains the exclusive concentrated Labrador Tea Extract, which is the most powerful antioxidant, and helps to give it its silky, lightweight, airy texture. When combined with a primer, it stays put the entire day without creasing or fading. As perfect as it is on its own, it looks equally as stunning paired over another shade found in the Expression Eyeshadow Palette. It helps to give just the right amount of sparkle and shimmer to any eye look. Lise Watier Ombre Souffle Supreme in Fairy Pink retails for $24.
Lise Watier Eye Shine is another eyeliner favourite of mine, thanks to its easy application, long lasting formula and lightweight, creamy texture. It’s much like the cult fave, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil, but with a slightly lower price tag. It has an extremely soft, creamy texture that glides across the lid with ease and blends and smudges effortlessly when you first apply it. As it begins to dry, within a few seconds, it sets to a waterproof, budge-proof finish. A new shade, Expression, is added to the lineup and is the perfect greyish/ olive green for the season. It goes beautifully with the rest of the collection and has a lovely metallic finish to help add depth and shine to the eyes. Although I usually stick with a matte black liner, this highly pigmented, metallic with a pearl, shiny, slightly shimmery finish really gives a unique effect to the eyes. A single swipe will add a soft, subtle line on either the upper or lower lash line, but you can layer it, without being flaky, to really define the eye. Lise Watier Eye Shine in Expression retails for $20.
Lise Watier Feline Eyeliner HD comes in a new shade, Vert, for a total of 3 shades with a brand new packaging and design. It provides control, even coverage and allows you to create both precise and gold lines. Detailed work is a breeze, you’ll be able to achieve the thinnest, most accurate line you ever thought imaginable. This liquid liner has a soft, high precision felt-tip applicator for easy and effortless application. Try drawing continuous strokes in small connecting dashes, instead of one single swipe, for a more flawless line. It has a richly pigmented formula that provides extremely opaque and intense colour payoff. It’s long-wearing, up to 12 hours, without fading, cracking or smudging. Lise Watier Feline Eyeliner HD in Vert is a beautifully deep, teal with a matte finish. It retails for $20.
Lise Watier Rouge Gourmand Velour is Canada’s number one selling matte lipstick and I can see why. It’s formulated with jojoba oil that not only gives it a rich and creamy, smooth texture, but it keeps lips extremely hydrated. For someone who loves the look of a matte lipstick, but hates the drying effect, this will truly be a game changer for you. It has an incredibly lightweight texture, which again, is off for a matte lipstick and it glides across the lips like butter. It’s highly pigmented, true opaque colour payoff in a single swipe and lasts a solid 6 to 7 hours before fading. Lise Watier Rouge Gourmand Velour limited edition Expression is a beautiful true red. It adds a nice pop of colour to the lip that’s easy to wear and will look beautiful on all complexions. It also doesn’t bleed into fine lines or feather outside the lines. It retails for $22.
Last, but not least, Lise Watier Nail Lacquer in limited edition Expression is the perfect pale coral shade that will have you wishing for warmer days to come. It has a fine tip brush with light up cap for easy application with a rich and creamy formula. It glides on smoothly, is streak-free and the precise brush covers the entire nail in a few swipes for even coverage. It’s pigmented, opaque and extremely quick drying. You can expect a solid 4 days before chipping. It retails for $13.50.
Also in the Lise Watier Expression 2015 Spring Collection is two new shades of Rouge Plumpissimo lipstick in Rose Petale and Rose Nu for $22 each. The limited edition shades will be available from February to April 2015 with the rest of the regular products being released in February.
