It’s definitely spring. I know this because all of a sudden my Instagram feed is filled with rosé and ramps instead of hot cocoa and cashmere. And about time—this winter far overstayed its welcome.
In addition to iced coffee and bare legs, this season cues the return of color—glorious, happy, gleeful color. So you can imagine my delight why I got my hands on Cynthia Rowley Beauty’s Spring 2014 collection, which launched yesterday in the Birchbox Shop. From the crazy-cute confetti motif (I mean, doesn’t it just make you want a Funfetti cake?) to the cheerful hues, the collection makes it easy to brighten up your whole look.
I love the creamy lip stains, which combine the rich pigment payoff of a lipstick with the shiny finish of a gloss, and the eye pencils, which have a silken feel and come in a daring teal, silver, and violet (as well as classic black and charcoal). There’s also a darling neoprene makeup case and pastel-toned eyeshadow palette (available for pre-order) that will make the perfect sidekick for all my May and June weddings.
Now all I need is my first ice cream cone (sprinkles, please) of the season.
