Some may call me a makeup junkie. I may have half the MAC counter in my bathroom and more mascaras on the go than I have eyelashes. As a result, I’ve had to force myself to chill out on the makeup acquisition front, since it’s cheaper than the secondary apartment I’d have to rend to store my cosmetics collection. So when I allow a new set of products to join the family, it’s got to be pretty impressive, and that’s exactly what Caryl Baker’s Spring Bloom collection is.
Spring time is one of the best times of year to refresh your makeup collection (I mean, besides any day that ends in Y), especially when it comes to color. When the brighter skies, longer days, and warmer temperatures that come with spring start to come around, it’s time to pack away the dark, sombre and oh so sexy colours of fall and winter and seek out the fresh, vibrant and also oh so sexy hues that scream SPRING. The Spring Bloom collection is inspired by the fresh spring flowers, the lush rainfalls that help them bloom and the warmer temperatures that help them flourish.
If I had to play favorites (which is incredible hard) here are my picks from the collection:
These amazing eyeshadows apply like velvet, depositing a perfect amount of color that’s buildable and blendable. They’re made with Orchid Flower Extract, an emollient anti-oxidant that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles plus provides super moisturizing and refreshing benefits, Vitamin E that provides anti-oxidant protection to help to prevent wrinkling, and they’re also Paraben-free, Gluten-free and Vegan!
The silky powder blush was the perfect product to give my skin that spring like glow. The CBV power blushes are triple-milled into a highly-pigmented fine powder to provide a luxurious, longwearing finish. Made with Vitamins A, C and E to help provide anti-oxidant protection against harmful free radicals, these blushes are also Paraben-free.
For spring 2016 lip colours are trending in softer tones of coral, peach and pink, and CBV presents them in vitamin-enhanced formulations that glide on to create a perfectly pretty pout. Made wtih Shea Butter to provides anti-oxidant and extra moisturizing benefits, Avocado Oil, which is rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants that provide nourishing and hydrating benefits. They’re also Paraben-free and Gluten-free. I adore Morning Dew, it’s the perfect pinky nude for my complexion and I can’t get enough of the built in mirror, it’s so convenient.
While fall may have been all about matte lips, springtime means glossy pouts. You can layer these Super-sheer hint-of-colour glosses over the lipsticks for added vavavoom, or let them shine on their own. These glosses go on as smooth as silk and come in fun and fresh spring shades. My favorite was Romance, a Coral pink with gold shimmer that’s perfect on those rainy spring days when you need that perfect pick me up. Made with Vitamin E to provide intense hydration and moisturizing, and are Paraben-free, Gluten-free and Vegan.
