Spring Beauty

Judging by our Instagram feeds over the last few days it seems that spring has finally sprung.*

Yes, we made it through winter storm Thor and his evil sidekick Polar Vortex and now it's time to celebrate the return of Mr. Sun with #FreeTheToes sandals and hiked-up hemlines.

But what will really make that new (or simply resurfaced) wardrobe that much better are some fresh beauty buys. Because few things pair better with a floral frock than a punchy lipstick (Revlon's Hydrangea hue is a good choice) and you can't possibly break out those flip flops without a brand new pedicure—may we suggest Essie nail polish in Blossom Dandy or Jin Soon nail polish in Tila.

So because it's been a long, cold winter and you deserve more than a popsicle as your warm-weather treat, score some of these amazing spring beauty products instead.  

(*On the East Coast…It's been tank top-temperatures in the west for quite some time.)
