From light rosy hues to bright coral tints—pink is one of the best shades for spring. Not only does it match many of the flowers finally in bloom after this doozey of a winter, but this bright and happy shade always looks better with some sunshine (and eventually a tan). To give you a jumpstart on your spring colours, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite pink beauty products.
Benefits tints are one of the hallmarks of their brands. The multi-purpose lip and cheek tints were great for stay-all-day colour, but we were lacking a bit in the moisture department. Enter the new Benefit Balms, inspired by their tints. The Benefit PosieBalm is the same sweet shade of pink, but delivers on moisture while giving a sheer (but totally buildable) swipe of colour too. $22, available at Sephora in June.
Add a bright pop of colour to your mani, courtesy of the Chanel summer collection—full of juicy pinks and oranges. A particular favourite from the collection: Vernis in Tutti Frutti. A bright coral with a soft gold glimmer, adding the right amount of party to your nails and it will easily become a favourite all summer long. $27, chanel.ca.
Get flushed with the YSL Collector Face Palette. A light but pigmented pink offers the flush, while the gold infused into the palette provides a luminous finish that lends itself to being part blush, part bronzer and illuminator. Plus it’s the perfect way to fake that summer radiance until your skin starts responding to the sunshine. $70, available at Holt Renfrew.
Get the glow in a different way with the Lise Watier Blush Cré¨me Satin in Rose Eden. The creamy formula has a powder finish, but allows just enough of a glowy texture to give you that ethereal and dewy look that will make it seem like you’re glowing from the inside out. $24, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
High shine and kissable colour, all in one little product? Sign us up. The new GOSH Lip Lacquer in Crispy offer a glossy finish with a feel-good (paraben-free and argan oil- and vitamin E-infused) formula that will have you smacking your lips all season long. $12, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
