floralsWhile fresh flowers are nice, and having the windows down to get fresh air is ideal, we're not quite to those temperatures yet so my floral candles have definitely been getting me in the mood for spring. My current favorite is the holland tulips soy candle I got last summer. It's the smallest single wick candle but the scent throw is amazing & I don't know if anything smells like spring more than tulips. I'm also excited to burn the pink magnolia candle from Target-- from what I found on the website it looks like this fragrance is back this year & available in this really pretty hobnail glass container.
Floral perfumes are my weakness in general. Daisy eau so fresh obviously wins for the prettiest packaging, but english pear & freesia is possibly my all-time favorite scent. While they're both very floral, I find daisy to be more on the sweet side.
a pink lip
My lips get crazily chapped during the winter and the Smith's strawberry lip balm is my all-time favorite. I've tried almost every other version of their lip balms and this one is my absolute favorite. While strawberry strikes me as more summery I wanted to mention it because it's a must if I'm planning on wearing lip color.
I picked up the Smashbox Liquid Lipstick in babe alert during the VIB sale in the fall. While I immediately loved the formula, I originally planned on switching the shade because even though it swatched beautifully, it looked too orangey on the lips. I ended up trying it on again and actually really liked the color-- I'm not sure if it was the little bit of added color from our trip to Miami, but I think I'll really like it when I totally switch to my darker foundation. I definitely recommend checking out if you're looking for a liquid lipstick that really stays put and doesn't feel overly drying on the lips.
With the change of seasons on the way, my wish list is growing a little bit.
(1)I've heard the Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in pillow talk is amazing, so I was really excited to see the shade was now being released in a lipstick formula. It's supposed to be the perfect pinky nude. (2)I'm pretty sure lolita was all of the rage last year, but Kerri always talks about loving Kat Von D lip products, so I'd love to try out the everlasting liquid lipsticks. (3)Apparently I'm all about the lips, but the new Buxum plumping lip liner seems really interesting & has great reviews so far. (4)I don't currently wear eyeshadow enough to justify buying this Smashbox palette, but the colors in the ablaze kit are gorgeous and I love how small and compact it is. (5)I'm not really bit into clothes shopping right now, but I've had my eye on this romper-- I love the structure of it & the burnt sienna color is one of my favorites.
What's on your wish list for spring? Are you a fan of liquid lipsticks? Floral scents?
