I really love the whole idea and meaning behind the Lise Watier Expression Spring 2015 Collection:
EXPRESSION. Release your inner artist and become your own canvas!
Now, that’s an idea AND a collection I can get behind! I’m all for inner expression…I am after all, a child of the 70s and early 80s to be exact…EXPRESSION. That time, those years, was ALL about expression! And this Lise Watier Expression Spring 2015 Collection kinda’ has that 70s, 80s makeup experimentation vibe to it! And? It’s MY JAM. As we used to say back then, in the olden makeup days...I DIG IT.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, NOBODY does packaging like Lise Watier! It’s always my favourite. I mean seriously…who can compete with THAT. PFFFFFFT. Nobody I tell ya’.
Let’s look at the star of the Lise Watier Expression Spring 2015 Collection, the Limited Edition Palette Expression for eyes($42):
Five creamy and pigmented eyeshadows in the amazing Lise Watier cream-powder formula with finishes of semi-matte to iridescent are just gorgeous and WOW. And tell me that they DON’T have a 70s, early 80s vibe to them…I mean C’MON.. LOOK at that baby blue aqua shade! I dies…
And on the eyes, these shadows just GLOW!
I love it! You could make that khaki green shade the focus and tone down the whole look, but I say WHY. Embrace the brights! This is such a lovely and pretty look for spring! And YES…if you are my age we can totally pull this look off! We did it before, and we can do it again! HIGH FIVE MY LADIES!
The blush! The Lise Watier Expression Blush Trio($38)! The texture is divine! It’s really soft in texture and in pigment as well.
You can use each shade separately, but eh-Tracy just swirls them all together because I am an impatient blush fiend these days I just want blush NOW hahaha!
It could be a tad more pigmented, but it’s really lovely! I do think this is a blush for pale gals like myself, and I think if you’re darker than NC20 in MAC talk, this probably won’t be a blush for you.
The Lise Watier Expression Eye Shine is an amazing, charcoal grey liner!
And there’s a new shade in the Feline Eyeliner HD($20), Vert, a dark turquoise green that’s oh so lovely.
And probably my FAVOURITE product in the whole collection is the Lise Watier Ombre Soufflè($24) in the new shade Fairy Pink. OMG. LOVE. This is pretty much the ONLY cream eyeshadow that lasts on my dastardly oily lids. I love the formula so much, that I’ve even got another shade or two during the last Shoppers Optimum Redemption, and THAT is something folks. I could be redeeming for Guerlain, but nope! Lise Watier made the cut baby! I take my free makeup seriously yo. I kind of agonize when I’m redeeming…weighing the pros and cons of products and brands…but it wasn’t a hard decision to redeem for another Lise Water Ombre Soufflè because I think they are THAT GOOD. Get one. You’ll thank me later.
There’s a Limited Edition Rouge Gourmand Velours lipstick in the shade Expression of course!
Lise Watier Rouge Gourmand Velours($22) are Canada’s No.1 matte lipstick, and for good reason! They are comfortable! With Jojoba oil in the formula, they are smooth and creamy and not drying at all.
Expression is a gorgeous, matte, rosy coral that’s pretty perfect for spring. It’s bright and happy! Just what we need right now! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been pulling out all my bright lipsticks and wearing them …and hoping that wearing them will get rid of winter…so far, it’s not working hahaha…but maybe this week it finally WILL work! To tell you the truth, I feel kind of gypped lately. When I first moved to Alberta, spring started about NOW. Yup. I remember there being hardly any snow by mid March when I first moved here…and even when Marky was little! But lately the snow hasn’t disappeared until late MAY folks…and I say…WHERE’S THE GLOBAL WARMING HEY. WHERE. Hahaha…and don’t worry…I DO believe in Global Warming…but I think weather patterns sometimes can over-ride that..which amazes me.
Anyhoooooo! I know people get their makeup wands all entangled in seasonal high end brand releases like Dior and Chanel. Which still…after all these years I’ve been blogging, kind of amazes me. Because honestly? There’s really not that much new, or GOOD there. I can’t say it any other way except: STOP BUYING INTO THE MAKEUP LABELS. It’s time to start exploring OUR makeup, CANADIAN makeup. Because this Lise Watier Expression Spring 2015 Collection? And pretty much most of her line? Is SO much better than those high end designer brands. If you’re not buying Lise Watier, I’m sorry but you are missing out my friend. And you friends of mine in the USA, you do know that you can order online! Yeah, shipping is expensive and I know that’s hard to swallow when you live in the land of FREE SHIPPING NO MATTER WHAT. But us Canadians have had to deal with high shipping costs all of our lives, and it’s really not that bad…especially when something is SO GOOD. Like Lise Watier…it’s WORTH it. Do it. And tell me I was wrong… I freakin’ DARE YOU.
