Beauty Love: Five Products for Spring 2014

April 15, 2014 • Beauty, Magazine


It’s finally spring, and I’m head over heels over my newest beauty loves. Check out five of my favorite products that are perfect for the season.

My first love has my eyes fluttering with beauty. These gorgeous lashes from Eyelashi come in the cutest, daintiest box that makes you want to stare at them on a display. The quality of the lash is unparallelled with the right combination of a little luxury, softness and volume. They wear well and can be reused several times. Bat your lashes – they are available in mink or hand tied.

This next gem, got me through the winter vortex and I think my skin has finally thawed out! Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration was a life saver for my super dry skin. I applied this along with Kiehl’s moisture mask at night to give my skin some suppleness. My skin immediately woke up with this moisturizer, so it has become a staple in my skincare routine.

I love healthy looking skin, and when my skin has other plans, I need a little help. That’s why I love It Cosmetics Vitality Face Disc. This anti-aging matte bronzer, luminating powder and blush gives my skin the best glow. It has so many great skin ingredients including collagen, acai, green tea, and Vitamins A, C, and E. Not only is it great for your skin the all-in-one disc is very universal and the colors tend to look good on just about anyone.

Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly need another lip gloss, Smashbox releases the Be Legendary Lip Gloss Collection. With some of the widest range of flattering colors I have ever seen these lip glosses prove truly amazing! What makes them different? Well it’s hard to get a formula perfect, but this gloss sold me when my hair didn’t stick to my lips. This is such a smooth formula and is never sticky. Gorgeously pigmented, only a few swipes of gloss will do for a super smooth, gorgeous color.

Last but not least is the product that sends me over the moon. Smashbox always does it right with their palettes! This extensive palette of highly pigmented eye shadows includes great neutrals, and instructions with easy how-tos for 6 eye shapes. The Smashbox Full Exposure Pallette consists of 14 must-have neutral shades, from nudes to blacks that will take you from day to night that apply effortlessly. These colors are best when pressed into the eye for the maximum amount of color. I promise you’ll love this palette, just as much as I do!
