After a long winter of using the same tried and tested beauty lineup, we’re ready for a proverbial breakup. We picture ourselves boxing up our old products and sympathetically explaining, “It’s not you. It’s me. These heavy lotions and balms are just starting to weigh me down. I want to see what else is out there this spring. I have to experience a sheer pink lip. Sorry, Crimson Red.”



MOROCCANOIL Beach Wave Mousse ($30 for 175 mL)

We love us some beach hair, but hate feeling like our dry tips will literally break off at any moment. This innovative salt-free mousse—infused with argan oil—mimics the worry-free tousled look without dehydrating your hair.


NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint ($57)

The word matte usually really scares us—we’re stringent dewy skin devotees—but we had to see if this foundation lived up to its hype. The final result? Skin that looks airbrushed without looking too done. The formula contains transparent blurring powders to minimize imperfections, even out blotchy skin, and smooth out the appearance of pores and fine lines.



CHANEL Rouge Coco Stylo in Histoire ($45)

Spring’s all about lightening up. Save yourself the headache of worrying about perfectly lining your matte lip, and apply this ultra hydrating lipstick. The hybrid formula adds a splash of intense colour while plant oils work to moisturize and nourish your pucker.


CHANEL Le Blanc Brightening Pearl Soap ($68)

Ah, the Le Blanc line we all know and love. This picture perfect makeup remove and cleanser—which mimics the shape of a pearl and is infused with pearl extract and argan oil—gently removes makeup and cleanses in one step. Seriously, is there anything chicer than that?


MARC JACOBS Cover(t) Stick Colour Corrector ($53 each)

These twist up colour correcting sticks are like Instagram filters for your skin. Each creamy formula has its own specialty: brightening dull skin, neutralizing redness, or evening out skin tone.



DEREK LAM 10 CROSBY Drunk on Youth ($220 for 175 mL)

Every season, there’s a perfume that everyone wants. This spring, Derek Lam hit one out of the ballpark by creating a collection of 10 must-have scents. The ten scents are inspired by moments, stories, and women—both real and imagined—outside of Derek’s flagship store at 10 Crosby, New York City. Each fragrance is accompanied by an enchanting movie, filmed on 10 Crosby, to match the unique mood of the particular scent. Our favourite is Drunk on Youth. The blend of crisp apple and honeysuckle reminds us of spring days spent skipping class to make out with our boyfriend on a park bench.
