It goes without saying, I think, that spring is in the air. The days are getting longer, the temperatures warmer and most importantly- THE SNOW IS GONE. Ok. My fling with spring is in full force.
I’ve added a few new products into my spring rotation. I’m currently testing the new Dior Fluidstick (Mirage) and the lovely new Lancome Lip Lover (316 Rose Attrape-Coeur). I’m also testing out the new Dior waterproof mascara and the Guerlain Maxi Lash (both deluxe samples with purchases). I will have full thoughts on all of these soon. For now, they suit the spring bill nicely.
I also caved and purchased the newly reformulated Guerlain Meteorites (in shade Medium). The tin was just too pretty and I mean, just look at it:
This picture just makes me happy. *sigh*
Since it is the season of renewal, I’ve rekindled my love for products already stowed away in my collection. I’m all about glowy skin, pinks, peaches, navy and browns…oh and did I say glowy?
Stila HD Beauty Balm Illuminating- I first tried this before Christmas and really enjoyed it. This is the deluxe sample size but I’ve got the full size waiting in the wings. It’s perfect for no makeup days.
Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Pop- The blush that looks like skin. Seriously, this stuff is amazing. It stays put and gives a vibrant pop of pink.
Edward Bess Quad Royale in South of France- The name just evokes lovely, warming thoughts. On the skin it gives a radiant, lightly bronzed glow.
Guerlain Cruel Gardenia Highlighter- Sadly limited edition but the flower design and light, glowy pink creamy powder really make this a spring must have.
Clarins Instant Lip Perfector- I have two shades of these and really really enjoy the light color they give to my lips, the not-over-the-top shine and balmy, hydrating feel they add.
Burberry Lip Cover in Golden Peach- This is a darker, more wearable peach. The Burberry formula and packaging are impeccable.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Dark Brown and Midnight- I have mini versions that I got in a gift set for Christmas and I’m so thankful I did. The liner formula is one of the best and these colors add definition without too much drama for daytime wear. The brown pairs nicely with light, muted golds and the navy pairs well with pinks and peaches.
Smashbox Limitless Cream Shadow in Quartz- I picked this up last summer after being (easily) persuaded by the Smashbox rep at ULTA. She said it was their best-selling shade and every bride she does requests this shade be used. I can see why. It’s glowy but not glittery.
Chanel Illusion d’ombre Convoitise- Although I am outwardly not the biggest fan of this cream shadow formula, this particular shade gives the most beautiful effect on the eyelids by itself or paired with other shadows and liner.
What are your spring flings? What colors do you shy away from or gravitate to?
