The past few days have been incredibly cold. Okay, so it's winter, in Canada; It's bound to be cold, but it's been record breaking-ly, bone chillingly, freeze all your bits off cold. What have I been doing to get myself through the deep-freeze? Pretend it's Spring and play with the ultra pretty Lise Watier Expression Collection for Spring 2015. Drop your mittens at the door and read on for a look

Blush first because, well, hello?! It's blush and because the limited edition Lise Watier Expression Collection Blush Trio is a stunner. Both the blush and packaging are designed to inspire major blush-lust as they both have a classy meets playful look. The outside of the white and silver compact is splashed with an artistic blend of multi-hued paint while the three-shade blush has an artfully abstract design. The blush contains three shades- what LW calls brown, rose, and orange- which can be used individually or all swirled together for a subtly shimmering, peachy-pink flush. Alone, the shades give a plummy-nude, carnation pink, and apricot blush to brighten and sculpt cheeks. The texture is perfection as you get great pigmentation and blendability. I do find this kicks up a bit of product, so a light touch is best, but otherwise this is a blush lovers blush for sure.

Fresh, dewy pink lips are always in style, but also happen to be so ultimately Spring. Achieve the look with two new shades added to the fan favourite Rouge Plumpissimo range with Lise Watier Expression Collection Rouge Plumpissimo Lipstick in Rose Nu (shown) and Rose Petal. Rose Nu is a natural, peachy-pink shade with creamy, moisturizing finish and subtle shine. The lipstick is formulated with plumping agents to give lips an 'irresistibly lush' look, but I didn't find this did much in that area. I love how easy this formula is to wear as it's light-weight on lips with a balmy feel that does add a fair bit of hydration- which I can certainly use right now. The two new lip shades are a permanent addition to the Plumpissimo range.

Of course, a little something for the eyes. While the Expression Collection does include a rather gorgeous palette (this one) it also brings two new shades to the Feline and Eye Shine liner range. The Lise Watier Expression Collection Feline Eyeliner HD in Vert is a deep, teal-kissed liquid liner. I LOVE this shade- which is a permanent addition to the range- as it's plenty deep and great for adding a defined cat-like flick, but the green shade is also amazing! I quite liked the flexibility of the tip, although it was a bit dry and took some work to get the product to flow into it. Application was easy as this glides well and can create a super defined flick.

The second liner, the Lise Watier Expression Collection Eye Shine in Expression is a gorgeous metallic charcoal shade with just a touch of a green tone is a beautiful, and pretty unique shade. While the shade is gorgeous, the formula is really the best part as it's richly pigmented, so creamy-smooth, and generally just so easy to apply as it glides on like butter. Like. Buttah. Oh, and it wears all damn day long. You're going to want this.

Overall, this collection is a pretty fab way to get through the remaining days weeks months of winter. The collection also contains a nail polish, velvet lipstick, cream shadow and powder brush, which can all be seen here. What do you think of these products? Do they have you hankering for Spring?
