With consecutive days of sunshine, spring is coming (and so is Game of Thrones season 5)! Of course, that means more pastels and bright colours will be popping up in our wardrobe (I’ll try to not wear black and grey all day…) as well as new makeup collections! Lise Watier released a new limited edition Expression collection for this coming spring 2015.
Palette Expression ($42)
The limited edition Palette Expression houses five soft colours- a light pinkish taupe, an iridescent yellow, mint, teal, and a forest green. I found them to be quite soft and creamy, which made it easy to blend on the lids. The more pigmented colours are the yellow, teal, and forest green. These colours are more out of my comfort zone, so I felt like I was channeling my inner forest nymph when playing with these.
Multi Function Powder Brush ($35)
My knowledge of using a fan brush is about the same as using a regular paint brush- if it picks up colour and I get the colour to where I want, it works! The multi function powder brush can be used for loose and compact powders. I used this on a blush; as I do not have any compacts that are as big as the brush, I swished the middle of the brush over a bronzer and tried to add some bronzer on my cheeks at an angle. The bristles are quite soft and it picks up the compact powder well; not sure for loose powder. Anyone knows how to use a fan brush??
Feline Eyeliner HD in Vert ($20)
Woohoo coloured eyeliner! I rarely find a well rounded coloured eyeliner- all pencil liners, from drugstores to brands at Sephora, have smudged. I’ve been disappointed by Maybelline’s Master Liner in Navy as well as Lise Watier’s Feline Eyeliner in Brown, because it wasn’t as pigmented as I hoped and didn’t add anything to my eyes. Vert is a stunning teal liner that complements with the Expression palette. It has a felt tip which made it easy to line the eye. I’ll for sure stop wearing my black eyeliner once in a while for this!
Rouge Gourmand Velours in Expression ($22)
Rated as Canada’s No.1 lipstick, the Rouge Gourmand Velours lipstick is a matte lipstick that sits comfortably on the lips. It contains Jojoba Oil that helps the lipstick be easily rolled onto my lips and I didn’t feel any dryness with it! Unlike the Baiser Velours liquid lipsticks, the Rouge Gourmand Velours is not as long lasting and stay-put on the lips. They are also not transfer proof so I’d have to check up once in a while when doing my daily activities. Expression isn’t a full on red; which is what I thought when I removed the lid. As much as I love bright lippies, Expression is a softer colour, one that I would wear more on a daily basis.
Nail Lacquer in Expression ($13.50)
Expression is a colour that every girl needs, or already have in their nail polish collection. It’s a foolproof colour for the spring; I have lipsticks, dresses, shorts, skirts, and blushes in this shade; I can’t wait to pull them all out for spring/summer! The nail lacquer is a bit thin and streaky, and I needed three coats for a fully coated nail.
My favourite so far is the Feline Eyeliner HD. The green eyeliner is something I don’t have a similar product of at home. (On the other hand…I have more black eyeliners than I have fingers..#bbloggersProblems.) The Expression collection also includes the Expression Blush Trio, Ombre Souffle Supreme in Fairy Pink, Eye Shine crayon, and the Rouge Plumpissimo. Lise Watier products can be found at London Drugs.
