Spring is my favorite season of the year and it’s right around the corner!
Just like the September issue, I love the March issue of every fashion magazine because it’s filled with Spring trends and colors. As much as I love to wear black and white, I love me some colors…bold colors to be exact. What can I say; I’m a true Aries.
Here are some of the beauty products I’ve added to my collection. I wanted to give the girls a heads up since a lot of these products and colors are quickly selling out in stores.
Chanel’s Illuminating Powder - seriously ladies, good luck finding this one. I casually went to check it out at one department store and they were sold out. I went to another store, sold out. By the third store, I was purely on a mission only because it had turned into a challenge for me.
Nars Eyeshadow in Rated-R -ok, you can laugh at me for this one. But Cynthia Bailey inspired this color duo for me. On this current season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, Cynthia, is seen wearing rich cobalt blue eyeshadow. I went above and beyond to find the *right* blue and Nars’ Rated-R palette won this search.
L’Oreal’s Lash Boosting Serum -there are so many lash boosting serums on the market now so I figured most of the beauty brands should have this ingredient down. I’m also obsessed with any mascara that L’Oreal makes and I figured I’d love their lash boosting serum too. So far so good for $15!
Smashbox BB Cream -every beauty enthusiast has been raving about BB creams lately. So I went out and got the highly recommended one for women in their 20-30s. I like it, but I don’t LOVE it. But if you wear foundation on the daily, then you should definitely stop wearing foundation and start wearing BB cream. I use it in Light color but it’s still a bit dark for my complexion.
Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado -for Spring, I’m obsessed with golden bright yellow on the eyes. I can’t wait to be poolside or on the beach with golden yellow sun-kissed eyelids. Let’s imagine: tanned body, wet hair, iced non-virgin drink in hand, hot jams playing in the background, hot shirtless bods, and you with your bright yellow eyes. Yes!
GlamGlow Mask -my girlfriends have been RAVING about this new mask that’s hit Sephora. Being so obsessed with my skin, I had to give this product a try. But when I found out how expensive it was, I bought the little sampler for $18 instead. This will give me a chance to truly find out if it’s worth the $70. I’ve used it twice already and so far, not worth it. Kiehl’s has a mask just ask good…but more on that later
Sigma Resort Pallet -my new favorite beauty brand is Sigma. I started out with their brushes and have moved on to their eyeshadows. This was my first eye pallet I got when it was still crappy weather out. All the colors in this pallet scream Spring and Summer. It’s that one pallet you can use all season long everywhere you go.
Benefit’s Dallas Glow Powder -contour, contour, contour! That’s all I hear these days. I bought lots of different dark powders for contouring and this was my winner. I have too many reasons as to why I love this, so just try it for yourself. I have confidence in this product.
Stila Liquid Eyeliner in Snow -black and white is a super hot trend for Spring this season. So why not follow this trend on your face? Basically what you do is you put the black liquid eyeliner on top of your lids and follow it up with this white liquid eyeliner on top of the black. Giving your eyelids two rows of liners, one black and one white. This is a super cool makeup tip, I love this look!
NYX Glad Shadow Stick in Glistening Emerald -the IT color for this Spring is green. So I had to get myself a nice gliding green eye pencil. I’m obsessed.
Girlactik Blush in Bora Bora -for an everyday blush color, this is my fav!
Hope you ladies enjoyed my detailed Spring beauty 411 post. I’d love to hear back from you, so please keep me posted if you try any of these products!
