Spring Products Wish List

Hello Lovelies! Now that the warmer months of the year are right around the corner, cosmetic companies are releasing all of their beautiful Spring goodies. Let me just say, it is all so tempting! I wanted to share with you a few Spring products I am especially excited to try out! Now if only I had a limitless bank account so that I could purchase them all... (but I guess that is why this is called a Wish list).

1. Flora by Gucci- Gorgeous Gardenia ($70)

The original Flora by Gucci is a beautiful, sophisticated fragrance. I adore Gardenia, so I can only imagine how delicious this scent must be.  

2. tarte Gifts from the Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection ($42)

I am a huge fan of the Amazonian Clay blushes as well as the LipSurgence lip tints. So when I saw that Tarte had released this kit of "honeysuckle" coral-pink products, there was no way I could resist. I have to come clean & admit that I cheated a bit, and already ordered this off! This kit is a fantastic deal as well- the blush usually retails for $25, the LipSurgence pencil for $24 & the Maracuja Lip Gloss for $21.  

3. Smashbox Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow ($19)

I use cream shadows year round, but I have a special appreciation for them in the Spring when my allergies are raging against me full force. With my eyes itchy & bloodshot, I often opt to avoid powder shadows & any accidental fallout that could irritate my eyes even more. 

4. MAKE UP FOREVER Aqua Shadow ($20) 

The idea of a cream shadow in pencil form intrigues me & I cannot wait to see these in person! These come in 12 shades, including matte options, which I find is harder to come by in cream shadows. 

*All of these products are currently available on*

Which new Spring releases are you especially excited by?

Thanks for reading!

Lots of Love,



  1. oooh i'll have to try this! I love spring scents! In fact, i tend to gravitate towards lighter scents such as Philosophy's Amazing/Pure grace etc.

  2. The Tarte gift set looks amazing, I wish I could get Tarte products. :( xx

    1. Thanks! I feel that way about Bourjois products! I always see so many lovely things on other beauty blogs..but they aren't sold here in the US!

  3. So weird, i posted a comment but it didn't show! Question, does the Smashbox cream shadow crease? I like smashbox products but don't have their cream shadow and as you mentioned, it's a good alternative to powder shadows in the height of allergy season :)

    1. Hi Carla! Well so far, I have only been wearing the Smashbox cream shadow since this morning (it is now 6:00pm) and no, not a single crease! These really are budge-proof! In fact, I actually had a hard time removing swatches of the darker colors off my arm, so make sure you have a good makeup remover!

  4. Great wish list! I feel the same way... if only we could win the lottery right? hehe. You have some lovely items on your wish list & I hope you get at least some of them! Particularly loving the Smashbox cream eyeshadow :)
