This April, everything’s really coming up roses.
As in, there are plenty of rose-scented (and colored) beauty goods stocking the shelves at your favorite beauty destinations right this second. Now, rosy fragrances, lotions and spa candles have never (and will never) go out of style, but this month it would seem that everyone’s jumping on the garden-fresh bandwagon. But hey, there are no complaints here.
As a matter of fact, I’ve always had a soft spot for blush tones and sweet floral scents. So with all of these rosy goods taking up residence at Sephora’s, Ulta’s, etc. across the country, I feel like a kid in a candy store. What, with Dolce & Gabanna’s new rose-scented fragrance, how could you expect me not to go a little nuts in the beauty aisle? And with Tarte’s pretty new lip balm and Laura Geller’s dusty pink blush trio, you really can’t blame me for going a little berzerk at the checkout.
Now without further ado, check out the best beauty buys this month—and why I’m obsessed with them!
1.Nails Inc Spray-On Nail Polish in Mayfair Lane, $12
Was I skeptical when I got this? Yes. Was I amazed by the results? Absolutely. After a lifetime of struggling to paint my own fingernails without looking like a five-year-old post finger painting, this spray-on nail polish is the answer to a lifetime of prayers.
2. Caudalie Limited Edition Organic Grape Water Toner, $13
French gals tend to know their stuff when it comes to beauty secrets, and this little travel-sized toner is one of them. Mist your face in the morning, post-workout or just for an afternoon pick-me-up, and you’ll instantly feel refreshed and rehydrated.
3. Biossance The Nourisher Precious Rose Face Oil, $72
Not hating on moisturizer at all, but every once in awhile you need a luxurious face oil to step up the plate and give your face a next-level kind of lovin’. And trust me, this sweetly scented bottle of oil is worth it’s weight in gold when it comes to pampering your skin.
4. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue, $19
Dry cracked lips, be gone! This little gem is the perfect solution for moisturizing lips and providing a subtle pop of color. Win-win.
5. Dolce & Gabbana Rosa Excelsa Fragrance, $84
A rose by any other name will not smell as sweet as Dolce & Gabanna’s upgraded new fragrance. It’s a ladylike scent reminiscent of an overflowing bouquet of roses and sweet macarons on a silver tray. Basically, it’s my new signature scent.
6. Laura Geller Just Blushing Pallete, $34
Whether you’re looking to blush like a bride or glow like a sun-kissed goddess, this perfectly poised little trio’s got the right shades to flush your cheeks to perfection.
