The April Beauty Edit

Spring is finally here! We still haven't had our spring break and it can't get here soon enough. The weather is finally starting to get a bit warmer. That means it is time to refresh your beauty + skincare products and I have some excellent suggestions for you!

You can brighten, firm, and repair the look of your skin while you sleep. Sound good? Wake up with luminous, wedding-day skin every day with the tulasāra wedding masques from Aveda. Botanical science firms the look of skin with plant stem cells. While ayurvedic wisdom brightens and evens the look of skin with turmeric root. These game-changers have proven results. 100% instantly showed brighter looking skin. 85% showed a reduction in the appearance of dark circles. It is such a perfect way to refresh your skin for spring.

Nourish your lashes and your lips with Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara and True Color Nourishing Lipstick. True Color Nourishing Lipstick offers full coverage, lasting color and conditioning care in one nourishing lipstick. Infused with jojoba oil, vitamin E, collagen and lanolin. Keeps lips feeling conditioned and moisturized even after you take it off. The shade I tried was Berry Sangria (shown below).

Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara makes lashes look longer, feel healthier and conditioned without clumping, smudging or flaking. The Flexi-Brush gently coats each lash with a fortifying formula, without tugging or pulling. The nourishing formula contains argan and coconut oils, so it protects and fortifies lashes. I love this mascara!

Next up is the latest peptide-infused color nail collection from Dermelect Cosmeceuticals. The Spring/Summer 2017 ‘ME’ Romantic Renaissance Collection celebrates the season of renewal with six newly cultivated and distinguishable shades. The formulas were inspired by the essence of pairing spring renewal and optimism with Renaissance era themes. ‘ME’ professional lacquers are peptide-infused color treatments for fragile, weak nails.

The first two shades above are from Dermelect’s ‘ME’ Romantic Renaissance Collection. I reviewed Coat D’Amour (Raspberry Rose) and Coquette (Poppy Red). The last two shades above are from the Dr.'s Remedy 10th Anniversary Enriched Nail Color Collection. I reviewed Resilient Rose (Warmed Pink) and Brave Berry (Fresh Berry). Aren't they lovely?

The Dr.'s Remedy 10th Anniversary Enriched Nail Color Collection includes these two chic new, doctor-formulated shades created to celebrate a decade of healthier looking nails. Infused with treatment benefits that bolster the strength and appearance of dry, brittle, discolored nails, these empowering new shades are guaranteed to brighten up both your manicure - and your day. Resilient Rose and Brave Berry convey a sense of perseverance and optimism!

Recovery Treatment Oil from MALIN+GOETZ can help you restore that parched winter skin. This luxurious facial treatment combines nine natural oils to help protect skin from free radical damage and renew skin’s appearance. Evening primrose, argan and jojoba oils help to boost hydration, reinforce skin’s moisture barrier, and soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Grapeseed and rosehip oils deliver essential vitamins C and E to prevent free radical damage, improve elasticity, and restore a healthy complexion. Geranium and borage oils help to reduce inflammation and balance skin by normalizing oil production. When applied daily, skin feels softer, looks smoother and takes on a youthful radiance.

If you wear makeup every day, you know when your skin has had enough! The Post-Makeup Recovery Spray from SKINDINAVIA keeps skin clear and radiant in between and after makeup applications. Post-Makeup Recovery Spray delivers a quick boost of key nutrients, including powerhouse mineral Zinc that is clinically-proven to help prevent breakouts and clear clogged pores. Sprayed on within five minutes of removing makeup, it delivers a winning formula of zinc, magnesium and willow bark to keep skin clear, healthy and radiant the moment your skin needs it the most!

PUR's No Filter Blurring Photography Primer will make your spring selfies look better than ever. Moisturize, color balance, prime and illuminate the skin in one step. This unique primer with prismatic blurring micro-pearls helps to color correct while age-defying skin care ingredients nourish the skin and a vitamin-rich Energy Complex with moisturizing agave and essential fatty acids prep the skin for makeup application. Loaded with essential oils like Coconut, Olive, and Shea a drop of this into your foundation will result in a dewy yet shine-free finish that boosts radiance and masks imperfections for a picture-perfect complexion.

This Silicone Makeup Applicator was designed to completely eliminate wasted makeup and skincare. While sponge applicators soak up large amounts of makeup during application, the MakeupDrop perfectly applies and blends your foundation, blush, highlighter, concealer, moisturizer, and primer without absorbing one drop! Only half the amount of product is needed as compared to a traditional sponge or brush applicator.

The Makeup Drop applies every single drop of my foundation without wasting a single bit. The application is very even as well. You can easily clean your drop with soap and water, much easier than cleaning a brush or sponge. It is perfect for those who hate messy makeup fingers (that would be me)!

7th Heaven’s new spa line includes three different hand and feet masks that deliver super-hydrated skin! They come in single-serve sachets, and work as the perfect addition to an at-home manicure or pedicure. Their unique glove and sock format helps to effectively deliver moisture and beneficial nutrients to the skin. The Soften Glove Masques pamper rough, dry chapped hands with a generous helping of moisture packed shea butter and soybeans. Soften Sock Masques are disposable booties lined with a luxurious shea butter and almond oil-based formula that repairs dry, callused feet and heals. Strengthen Nail and Cuticle Finger Masques strengthen and condition distressed and damaged nails using nourishing argan and macadamia nut oils as well as antioxidant pomegranate. Look for them at Walmart.

Take your eye-look from day to night with Rimmel's Magnif’Eyes Eye Contouring Palettes. These twelve-pans are an all-in-one pressed eyeshadow, liner, and highlighter kit. Rimmel has put everything you need for multi-dimensional eye looks in one handy kit. The beautifully blendable, ultra-smooth powder can be used on the lid, in the crease of the eye and as a liner to enhance and magnif’eye your eye color and shape. The non-crease, non-fade formula has serious staying power for eyes with lasting impact.

Grunge Glamour (left) is the perfect palette for a sultry smokey eye. Neutral grays and browns are set against fierce, bronze and pewter hues for irresistible eyes. Be as subtle or as bold as you dare. London Nudes Calling (right) spans an array of warm blush tones from beige through tawny to taupe to rust and plum. It’s easy to create a multitude of wear-anywhere nude eye-looks that look natural or intense.
