I am itching to switch up what’s in my makeup bag. And with the official arrival of spring in a few short days (it makes its debut on Sunday, in case you were wondering), there’s no better time to stock up on some essentials.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer: While I will always be loyal to my Stila Stay All Day Foundation, the arrival of warmer days has me longing for some lighter makeup. Enter the tinted moisturizer. In the past, I would have shied away from a consistency that offered limited coverage, but now that my skin has improved I think it’s the perfect time to give this beauty from NARS a try.
Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick: You may remember when I first tried this color stick, and many months later, it is still a favorite. I originally purchased the stick in Warm Caramel, which was a great everyday hue for fall and winter. But now it’s time for a fun pop of color to brighten things up. And Sweet Watermelon (shown above) is the winner!
Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder; Glow Collection: What could be easier than swiping on a little powder and getting that beautiful sun-kissed glow? I don’t typically use highlighting powder, but I think it will complement the tinted moisturizer nicely.
Formula X: Cupcakes and Cashmere Edition: I was thrilled when Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere announced that she had collaborated on three nail polish colors with Formula X. Of course, a nice red is always in style, but her nude polish, aptly named Latte Run, has earned a spot on my list for spring.
John Frieda Sea Salt Spray: Don’t we all love the look and feel of our hair after being at the beach all day? Now we can achieve that same style with just a spritz of product. I’ve long loved sea salt spray, and I can’t wait to try this one out from John Frieda.
L’Oreal Brow Plumper: I’m guilty of using mascara to darken and define my brows. But when I spotted this product at CVS the other day, I knew it was something that needed to make its way into my makeup bag. Stay tuned for a full review coming soon!
What’s on your makeup wish list for spring?
