My current Springtime essentials:
  1. Make Up For Ever HD Foundation - After testing it out for a couple of weeks, this foundation has really grown on me. I wasn't impressed at first, mainly because I am so in love with my Mat Velvet +. I like a nice, medium coverage to conceal the patches of discoloration I have. However, after a few days, my bias changed and I now love how natural it looks. I still prefer the overall coverage and lasting power of Mat Velvet. That foundation will always be my favorite, but the HD is beautiful for this time of year when I want a more dewy complexion. I think of it as a kicked up tinted moisturizer!
  2. UNITE 7 seconds detangler - My soon to be sister-in-law/hair stylist swears by this leave in conditioner at the salon she works in. She got me hooked on UNITE products, and 7 seconds leaves my dry ends looking and feeling much softer and more manageable. I use this right before I blow-dry my hair.
  3. Hourglass Ambient Powder - The much raved about face powder on YouTube intrigued me to the point that I had to see what all the fuss was about. Hourglass has a few shades, but I got mine in Dim Light. I sweep this all over my face as a setting powder. It's very finely milled so it doesn't leave me looking powdery or dry, just very natural.
  4. Revlon Lip Butters in Juicy Papaya and Pink Lemonade - ADDICTED to these two shades. I wrote a post about juicy papaya here. Pink lemonade is a light peachy pink that's great for everyday.
  5. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer - Let me confess something guys...I tend to get really lazy about applying lotion once the weather heats up. My skin is extremely (and I mean extremely) dry in Winter, but as Spring and Summer come around, my skin becomes more normal. This spray - on lotion is great because it absorbs quickly and has a soft scent. Fast, easy, and it really does moisturize without leaving behind a film.
What are your current Spring beauty favorites?

  1. I've been wondering about the spray & go moisturizer and how long it lasts. Might have to give this a try ;)

    1. It's not super long lasting but I would say it goes strong all day!

    1. I love UNITE! Such a great line that I wish was more accessable! Most people I know have never heard of the brand.

  4. I've been going to so many store looking for the papaya color since you posted it on instagram I think. I may try Ulta again tomorrow. It's so pretty!

  5. I am a huge huge fan of MUFE foundation. I love it so much. The unite 7 conditioner sounds very promising. I have to look into it. Have a great week!

  6. I love the MUFE HD, my first liquid foundation in years. I recently purchased the Mat Velvet but it hasn't worked too good. I think mainly because the color doesn't match me too well (Sephora SA helped me pick it out). So I might take it back and try to find a better color as the coverage is nice.
    I recently ordered a few new things from Sephora but one I'm liking especially is Benefit Hoola Bronzer.
