it’s 75 degrees in va today with some much-needed bright and beautiful sunshine. i’ve gotten so used to the gray of winter that i completely forgot – it’s spring break season!
to celebrate, i painted my toes ‘suburban warrior’ by smith & cult. i normally give them a break from polish during the colder months, so looking down to see this neon watermelon brightness is really making me smile. and holy gorgeous, i love these lacquers. if the crazy-good packaging wasn’t enough to sway you, (i mean, hello! that ergonomically shaped gold bottle top? so pretty.) we are talking about flawlessly smooth application and insanely brilliant shine. perhaps best of all is the chip-free performance, because i’m a week in with no topcoat and no damage, a semi-rarity for a 5-free formula.
on my lips is eden, a new shade of luxe sheer lip color from sonia kashuk. it’s the most beautiful bright and warm coral color, good and glossy, not too sheer, with lots of moisture and shine. once applied, it gives this blurred lip effect in one step and it wears for a surprisingly long time. it’s the very first thing that i’m throwing into my suitcase for my trip to LA on monday, because i love what it’s doing for my whole sun-starved face.
is your beauty bag ready to embrace spring? any early favorites?
