GABRIEL COSMETICS

I have a few everyday spring staples, as well as products from the Gabriel Cosmetics spring collection that I have been loving lately!  Pictured above is their blush in Petal and eyeshadows in Bisque and Sable.  Bisque is a light, soft pink that I wear all over the lid to brighten while still looking natural.  This is one of those staple colors I love having because it can work with palettes that are missing neutral matte shades.  Sable is a beautiful light brown that I have been using in my crease for natural definition.  It also works all over the lid and smudged on the lower lashline.  I have been reaching for these shades constantly in my spring beauty routine!  Another favorite, is my blush in Petal.  Petal is a muted pink that can be worn alone for a natural flush or complimented with a highlight.  This shade goes with so many looks and is so flattering.  I'll definitely be wearing it a lot this spring!

gabriel cosmetics rosewood - the beauty puff

For an everyday spring pink lip, I've really been enjoying the shade Rosewood.  This shade is a stunning peachy pink that will compliment a variety of skintones.  It's not too light, or bright and can work for both day and nighttime looks.

gabriel cosmetics eve - the beauty puff

Gabriel Cosmetics' spring collection is comprised of versatile hues that can be enjoyed every day.  The lipstick in this collection is called Eve.  This shade is a rosy mauve that is beautiful on its own or topped with a gloss.  Gabriel Cosmetics' lipsticks have jojoba oil and aloe to keep lips hydrated and protected, no matter what the season.  They are incredibly lightweight on the lips too, very comfortable to wear!

gabriel cosmetics eden palette - the beauty puff

If you are like me, you love a good palette containing all your necessities.  Gabriel Cosmetics thought of everything with their new Eden palette.  It is comprised of:

Veil - a matte highlight
Serenity - a soft pink blush
Trinity - matte beige eyeshadow
Mercy - shimmering copper eyeshadow
Genesis - soft brown shimmer eyeshadow
Reign - soft cocoa shimmer eyeshadow

I love how these shades compliment each other for a soft spring look.  Having everything at hand in one palette is ideal for travel and mornings when I'm in a rush!  The pigmentation and quality is just as good in these shades as it is my individual Gabriel Cosmetics items.  Overall, a fantastic must-have for spring.

If you're craving more pops of color for your spring looks, Zuzu Luxe has you covered!  Their spring collection is comprised of two eyeshadow palettes, two lipsticks and two blushes.  The new palettes in the Zuzu Luxe collection can give your spring looks a burst of vibrant color day or night.  These shades are very pigmented and only take the lightest touch for application.  They blend and wear beautifully through the day without losing their intensity.  Each compact includes four complimentary shades, an applicator and a slim mirror so they're great for travel as well.

  The lipsticks included in this collection are unique hues of mauve and blood orange. Tropic of Chaos (left) is a nude with a mauve undertone.  It has the slightest iridescence which makes it a really versatile shade that can be layered over other lipsticks as well.  Passion Flower (right) is a vibrant blood orange with a pop of red for the ultimate spring statement lip.  These are definitely unique shades for any collection and sure to add interest to all your spring looks!

Perhaps my favorite part of the Zuzu Luxe spring/summer collection, are the two blushes - Rio (left) and Cougar (right).  Rio is a shimmery rosy pink and Cougar is a shimmery peachy orange.  At first look, I didn't think I could pull off these shades.   However, these pigments diffuse into such gorgeous hues, I've been reaching for them constantly!  I love stepping out of my comfort zone and being finding surprise favorites.  These blushes have definitely got me hooked and have me experimenting more with color and new looks for spring.
