March Beauty Launches 2012: Mad Men Makeup, Essie Resort, and More

If we’re to believe that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, we have just a few weeks to stock up on spring- worthy products before sunshine takes over the weather channel. Our favorite brands have us covered with plenty of exciting launches, from a blockbuster nail polish collection to retro-inspired makeup and a decadent face illuminator.

  • Bond No.9 Central Park West

    Bond No. 9 The indie fragrance company is adding one more NYC neighborhood to their roster of location-specific perfumes. This most recent fragrance celebrates the grand architecture, cultural institutions, and chi-chi social calendars of Central Park West.

  • China Glaze Hunger Games Nail Polish

    China Glaze We’ve been obsessing over the movie and the polish collection for months. After a teensy bit of drama, the polish is finally available this month, in plenty of time to get your manicure for the first midnight showing.

  • Amika x Cynthia Rowley Ceramic Styler

    Amika Amika’s cute styling tools have us ooh-ing and ah-ing over both the design and functionality. This month they’ve teamed up with Cynthia Rowley, who designed a flat iron with a floral pattern from her Spring 2012 Collection.

  • VMV Hypoallergenics Skin the Bluff Concealer

    VMV Hypoallergenics The skincare experts’ first concealer comes in three shades, plus discoloration-hiding yellow, all made with organic coconut oil. Free of irritating fragrances, dyes, phthalates, parabens, and preservatives, the creamy formula blends in flawlessly.

  • Clé de Peau Beauté Luminizing Face Enhancer

    Cle de Peau Inspired by pearlescent conch shells, Clé de Peau’s latest offering is just as lovely inside as the multifaceted, jeweled packaging. The shimmery powder has illuminating beads that highlight the contours of your face, and comes in both cool and warm shades.

  • Essie 2012 Resort Collection

    Essie Pastels and jewel tones get an update in this four-piece collection, inspired by beauty icons Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Grace Kelly. Each shade has micro-glitter for a subtle shimmer.

  • Redken Powder Refresh 01

    Redken We first saw Redken stylists using this product on models backstage at NYFW—a sure sign that a product really works. The aerosol hair powder refreshes morning-after hair or gives a little extra oomph to updos and limp strands.

  • Estée Lauder Mad Men® Collection

    Estee Lauder The cult drama is finally back, and what better way to celebrate than with a limited edition lipstick and cream blush? It’s worth picking them up for the glam packaging alone, which was inspired by vintage 1960s Estee Lauder designs.
