Spring is here and I have recently found some great products for you all to try! They are all great for spring and can help you transition into summer as well. The colors of the products will definitely add a ‘pop’ to any outfit and will look great with any skin tone.

I have a new favorite lipstick that’s a very different look, but it looks GREAT on everybody. It’s MAC’s So Chaud (meaning ‘so hot’ en francais). It’s a matte coral-orange color and looks amazing no matter what your skin tone is. It’s a perfect complement to the spring weather and definitely worth a try. The summer version of this color is MAC’s Ruby Woo, which also looks fabulous on everybody, no matter what.

There is a nail color that looks great with the MAC So Chaud and Ruby Woo by OPI. It’s called Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It.  It’s almost a bright orange color, but looks so good especially with the MAC lipstick to match. I like OPI because they have a great laquer, they always get it, and they’re usually the ones to start the trends.

Next, to help prevent sun damage and keep skin hydrated, I strongly recommend Bobbi Brown’s Moisture Tint Balm. It is SPF 25 to help you prevent damage by the sun when you’re walking to work or at the park with the kids, anywhere outside while enjoying the beautiful weather. The Moisture Tint Balm makes your skin look so dewy, but don’t be afraid of it! There is no heaviness to it. It will make your skin look beautiful and perfect; everybody has to run out and get this product.

Something that is always on my favorites list is L’Orèal’s Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black. It makes the lashes really dark and long which is always in style. It adds intense length and also features lash by lash separation. Don’t forget when applying mascara, wiggle the wand at the base of the lashes upward to create the illusion of length, and separate each lash.

Finally, my favorite scent for spring is Serge Luten’s Louve Eau de Parfum. It’s an amber fragrance with a really warm, sweet, and sexy scent. You can find it at Barney’s and Bloomingdales, but a less expensive version can be found at Whole Foods. It’s an oil by Kuumba Made called Amber Paste. Some people find perfumes to be overpowering sometimes, but oils are a lot warmer than a harsh perfume and last on your skin longer.

What are some your favorite products for spring?
