It was a sunny day when I started to believe that we were seeing the beginnings of spring, only to be sorely disappointed when I woke up to more snow this morning. All Canadians can attest to the sheer joy and euphoria for the year’s first snowfall, but also to the absolute loathe and frustration felt when it’s still knee deep and blowing around come March and April. While bloggers in the UK are beginning to take those lovely shots of floppy hats and bomber jackets with a few blooming tulips in the background, I’m over here still bundled in my onesie and trying to avoid frostbite.
So while others actually get to experience the beginnings of Spring, I’m day-dreaming and thinking of all the beautiful things I’ll get to do when the snow melts. This includes the addition of many spring colours, fashions, and a new season of beauty products and releases to sink my teeth into.
This Spring season I’m looking forward to many things (and if I get a new job I may actually add a few of these to my collection). The first that excites me is the new Marc Jacobs Nude Sheer Lip Gels. I’ve never tried the Marc Jacobs lipsticks, but have been completely head over heels in love with them since they hit the shelves. The colours are amazing, the packaging is adorable, and these new gel formulas glide effortlessly over the lips, similar to the Revlon Ultra HD lipsticks which I love somuch. These new wax/gel formula’s are the bomb!
Next is the new Clinique Chubby Stick in contour and highlight. New, simple ways of contouring that don’t need specific brushes, youtube tutorials, and desperate help. Plus, everything is better in a little chubby stick form. New from Benefit this season is an addition to the Porefessional products in License to Blot. This little blotting stick is perfect to carry along and pull out when you’re in need of a blot. No powders and brushes necessary. New from The Body Shop are the 100% Natural Lip Roll-On Oil lip treatments. Oil treatments are very popular, and have proven to be very soothing and healing. I’m really looking forward to the Body Shop’s.
For the spring season, nude and white nails are completely a MUST!! With so many great quality drug store brands, and some great brands becoming even more popular there are so many great choices. These nails have been all over the fashion week runways and I’m so excited to get my nails healthy again to give them a go. What are you looking forward to this coming season?!
