Spring 2019 is here! How have I not posted my spring 2019 makeup must-have’s yet? Well, thankfully we aren’t too far into the spring season, so now is a great time to share my favorite makeup with you this season! If you have been reading my blog for awhile, many of these items will look like old hat to you. If you are new here, I hope you love my favorite beauty products too!

I will always standby my Laura Mercier caviar stick, foundation powder, and concealer. Chanel’s eye shadow quad’s, nail polishes, and blush colors are a longtime favorite too. Dior’s lipstick is a new one for me! I’m currently loving lipsticks from Chanel, Dior, and Almay. Estee Lauder is my go-to foundation; as always!

You can see everything I am using and loving this spring season in the widget below.

Chanel Rouge Coco Flash lipstick in 52 Casual

One of my favorite lipstick collections is Chanel’s line of Rouge Coco lipsticks. The Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick collection is sheer, and hydrating. They make the perfect daily lip colors! For the spring 2019 season, Chanel has created a new collection of colors in a bridge collection named Chanel Rouge Coco Flash.

I don’t really see any difference between the regular Rouge Coco lipstick collection, and Rouge Coco Flash. They are both collections of hydrating, sheer lip color. I love how smooth this lipstick applies, and how it’s just as hydrating as a lip balm. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from in the new Chanel Rouge Coco Flash lipstick collection. I decided to try out a soft neutral hue named Casual. If you prefer going by numbers, it’s color #52.

This is a really soft hue, which my daughter describes as “the same color as you.” OK, so Chanel Casual is my skin color. I guess that is a an easy way to describe it! haha. Just know, this colors appears more peachy in online stores. In real life, as you can see in my photos, it’s more of a warm beige.

There is a wide variety of colors in this collection. I definitely want to invest in a few more colors for the upcoming spring season. There are some really pretty pinks shades, and neutral hues which have caught my eye. You can see the entire range of colors here. Which color is your favorite?

Givenchy Lunar New Year collection review

How fabulous and luxurious is this Lunar New Year makeup collection by Givenchy? I’m in love! The Givenchy Lunar New Year collection features Prisme Libre, which is a finishing powder in color Mousseline Pastel #1, and also Le Rouge lipstick in a warm, red hue, named Rouge Fetiche #325. The collection is limited edition, and the casing is beautiful!

These colors are perfect for evening looks and dressy occasions; such as celebrating Lunar New Year! The red lipstick is a classic, warm red with yellow undertones. The pastel powder adds dimension to your makeup look without adding actual pastel hues. Don’t worry, your face won’t end up blue and green. The colors blend together to add vibrancy to your skin; not a pastel rainbow. Love!

The finishing powder adds vibrancy to dull skin, which is great at night when the lights could be working against you. It also brightens up your skin when you are tired or completely tan-less; which I am right now! haha

It’s a lightweight powder which will help set your makeup and soak up shine. Love that!

So I tend to prefer blue undertones in my lipstick, but undertones aside, this is a beautiful, warm red lipstick. It’s a classic hue which can be worn for evening affairs, or anytime you want a classic red lip. Love it!

Givenchy’s limited edition Lunar New Year makeup collection is classic and chic; perfect for a night out on the town! You can find it online here.
