9 New Makeup Products We're Eyeing Up This Spring
With spring comes the chance to reset your wardrobe, your hairstyle… Your whole beauty lewk essentially. Because after winter, we could all use a something to look forward to – weather and makeup wise. Enter spring’s new bounty of pretty blushes that will infuse color back into your cheeks, concealers that will blend and disguise until you’re more wide-awake, and lip balms, glosses, and sticks so good, you’ll be waking up to get ready just to try them out. If that doesn’t get you excited for a new season, we don’t know what will.
1. Buxom Power-Full Plump Lip Balm, $18
Yes, mood-changing lip products are back at it again. Buxom’s latest version adjusts its tint based on your body pH’s level, but it also plumps and hydrates at the same time. We can’t really say that for the shifty shades of yore. Pumpkin seed oil delivers comfort and suppleness as well. Available in their best-selling ‘Big O’ sheer pink, in addition to mauve and soft beige.
Everything you need to create the most flawless face for spring: primer to prep, high-impact highlighter, and refreshing setting powder – in on-the-go minis. Obsessed!
Available in three shades (Clear, Light and Medium), this 100% vegan gel lets you fake microblade-worthy arches without draining your wallet or going through the whole to-do to get them. Take your brows to the highest heights by brushing on the hemp fiber-rich formula to add volume and fullness, while holding shape and intensity.
For high-pigment blush that POPs on the cheekbones, reach for the new KVD silky, micro-milled powders that glide on the skin like a dream. The six rosy shades are also universally flattering and range from dusty rose and peachy beige to a more concentrated coco crimson.
Everything you could want in a concealer, in a portable clutch-friendly size. Stila’s Pixel Perfect coverage was obviously meant for flawless Insta selfies since it erases dark circles, blemishes, and skin imperfections with the stroke of a wand. Crease and cake-free, it’s easy-to-blend and even contains Elderflower Extract to de-puff “pass the coffee” level bags and minimize wrinkles. So kinda like an eye cream and concealer in one? We’re here for it.
6. KKW Beauty Mrs. West Palette, $30
Channel Mrs. West, Kim Kardashian, on her wedding day with her bridal-chic palette she created with her go-to glam guru Mario Dedivanovic. Comprised of six complementary neutrals and a few metallics, it contains every color you could need to create soft smokey eyes in a range of taupes, rose gold and deep browns.
If you were a fan of Hourglass’ genius refillable lipstick – that gives long-wearing color, with a satin finish that won’t feather – then you’ll be pumped they just released eight new shade extensions. Their celeb ambassador Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is partial to ‘You Make Me’ (a terracotta nude), but we’re also big fans of ‘Every Time’ (the best deep honey) and ‘I Still’ (a punchy red-orange hue).
8. Lime Crime Fairy Garden Collection, $16-25
Channel your inner fairy this spring with Lime Crime’s metallic Lid-Lites, which are single pan shadows with a suede-like consistency. And, for a pixie dust sprinkling on the skin, try their Body-Lites: body highlighters that dry down to a silky shimmer in pinky lavender, champagne, or minty green with silver undertones. Yes, please!
These do-it-all sticks will be your makeup BFF in a time crunch when you need a quick sheen on the brow bone, inner eye corner or Cupid’s bow, to go from work to happy hour stat. Use the matte side to softly define and the shimmer side to add a little luster wherever you need it.
