Spring Romance

With the seasons changing and flowers blooming it’s time for a lighter take on beauty. With flushed cheeks and glossy lips making their way onto the runways and out onto the streets the mood is gradually shifting. Put away those wintry dark lips and embrace spring’s romantic new view.


BALENCIAGA ROSABOTANICA – The sequel to megahit Florabotanica goes off in a different direction with a punch of fruity fig and rose combination that is enveloping. Capturing a completely different mood from its predecessor the sophisticated blend conjures images of lush tropical gardens and sensual escape.


CHLOE ROSES DE CHLOE – Chloe has always had the market cornered on feminine, elegant scents and their latest Roses de Chloe stands out as an ultra-romantic statement floral. Roses (naturally), magnolia, musk and amber combine for an aromatic and appealing blend that is just right for the season.


ILIA LIPGLOSS in LOVE BUZZ – Unlike the megawatt shine of many glosses Ilia offers a subtle take on the shiny lip that falls right in line with the season’s understated glamour. The all natural formulation utilizes coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E to keep lips hydrated in addition to glistening. The cool toned pink Love Buzz is flattering on all skintones and provides a burst of bubblegum color that screams Spring.


ILIA MULTI STICK in CHEEK TO CHEEK – The fun of a multi-use product is that rules are thrown out the window so this little stick can serve as a blush, shadow or even lipstick. Use it all over for a monochromatic look, or just add to cheeks for that sexy lit from within glow.


TATCHA LUMINOUS DEWY SKIN MIST – We’ve sung the praises of Tatcha before and with good reason, the Luminous dewy mist is the perfect finish to almost any look – preventing makeup from ever looking overly done with just a spritz.


MARC JACOBS GEL VOLUME MASCARA – Marc Jacobs’ beauty line is filled with exciting products, but one of our tried and true favorites is the gel mascara. With its lightweight feel and inky color it provides a dramatic look without the unwanted crunch found in heavier mascaras. This leaves lashes looking pumped up, but never overdone.


REVLON PHOTO READY CREAM BLUSH in CHARMED – If you’re feeling for the luxurious flush look at a reasonable price, you can’t beat Revlon’s creamy blush pots. New shade Charmed offers an intense rosy hue that is especially flattering on darker skin tones.
