As the snow starts to melt and Spring grows nearer I find myself getting more and more excited to shed my heavy makeup and embrace something more lightweight and natural.
Spring is the season of renewal and rebirth and an ideal time to start getting you’re skin back in shape again after a rather long hibernation period. If you live in a cold environment chances are you’re exposed to frigid temperatures one minute and warm, dry heat the next as you race from outside to inside do no favors for your skin.
Mine tends to get patchy and dry around my cheeks and feels two sizes too small. Since we’re just seeing the earlier start of Spring here I’m immediately thinking of ways to spruce up my Spring makeup wardrobe and thinking of the best ways to get a natural look while shedding my dry Winter skin.
Here a few tips to get your skin in order for the Spring season and a few suggestions for a naturally smoky makeup look to compliment your complexion using the new Revlon Photo Ready Primer + Shadow Palette in Metropolitan.
Ah Revlon your new Baby Stick Blush for Lips & Cheeks is such a great idea. It’s Spring almost Summer just the right time for a gel blush stick. Of COURSE, beauty junkies are going to get excited about a product like this.
Hooray for awesome marketing guys! Plus let’s not forget something called Baby Sticks makes us do a head whip around with our mouths in an O shape…come on admit it you know we’re all like, “OMG I need me some Baby Sticks!”
Seriously, you’re reading the wrong website if you aren’t thinking that!

As you know Revlon has a few new Colorburst Lip Butters floating around and Pink Lemonade happens to be one. Now I discussed a few times already that these new shades aren’t as consistent a formula as the original. Pink Lemonade happens to be the worst offender of the four shades in terms of pigmentation and quality.
The color itself is a hard one to pull off as it’s a pale mod pinky peach. The color might be best for a super fair skin tone with less than pigmented lips however, anyone in between might feel the shade makes them look deathly…or at least it made me look zombied.

Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya is one of four new shades that Revlon released with their new Summer 2013 Collection entitled Pacific Coast.
I’m not sure why but a few reviews I read likened to Juicy Papaya to Peach Parfait sans shimmer and I think that’s pretty misleading. Juicy Papaya is more of a nude muted coral where as Peach Parfait is a golden coral.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sorbet is one of four new shades released with the new Gucci Westman Collection for Summer 2013. It happens to one of the two brighter shades launched in this collection as Revlon went with a mix of some pretty nude colors and some rather vibrant ones, Sorbet being one.
