My Top 5 Spring Favorites

What's up guys!

Today I wanna dive into my top five favorite products I love using during the spring season (or nearly every season for that matter). Some of the products I stumbled upon recently and some are long time faves. Weirdly enough (I promise this was not on purpose), all of these items are available at Sephora, but I can point you towards other retailers who may have a better deal on these items as well.



1. The Original MakeUp Eraser
  • Ok this product was an iffy purchase for me. I'm all for trying new things but when coming across this, I honestly couldn't decide if I was better off purchasing a bundle of washcloths because that's what it reminded me of. However, it surely removes my makeup much better (with a softer feel) than my current washcloth. Luckily I didn't have to splurge the $20 retail at Sephora, I actually came across this at my local TJMaxx and scored it for about $8. Be on the lookout for hidden deals!
2. The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer
  • I've been really into The Ordinary brand lately. Ever since the launch at Sephora late last year, I've been trying to get my hands on their products that I thought would suit me best. I instantly grabbed this primer because for less than $5, I figured I couldn't go wrong. I'm so glad I did! Currently I use the Smashbox photo finish foundation primer and have been for years but this is definitely a great alternative. It's not too heavy and goes on really smooth while moisturizing my skin. Do not sleep on The Ordinary people! 
3. Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve in a Tube
  • Words almost cannot describe how much I love this and what I've been missing out on for so long. I actually purchased this tube at a local Sephora (figures) this past spring break in New York City. I ran out of my favorite Fresh sugar lip treatment and didn't feel like splurging $24 for a new one. So I looked around for cheaper alternatives and came across this. I remembered overhearing good things about the rosebud salve and since I currently have sort of long coffin nails I hate digging my nails into tins so I decided to go with the tube. For only $6, I felt as if I got a steal. This stuff is amazing. It can be used for just about anything but I'm sticking to it being my personal lip balm. It's moisturizing and long lasting, a little surely goes a long way and the price point has got me hooked. There are also other flavors that I for sure need to get my hands on soon!
4. Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara
  • I can never 100% settle on a favorite mascara but I can narrow it down to two. Benefit cosmetics surely has my vote and between this or the "They're Real" mascara, these two take the goal. Although I already have curly lashes, this mascara defines them even more and makes my eyes pop when I wear it alone. For $24, it falls a bit more on the pricier side so I generally hate restocking but it's definitely worth it!
5. Maison & Margiela 'REPLICA' Beach Walk
  • Perfume is a must no matter what season. It was hard narrowing down a favorite so I chose one that I felt worked with the aesthetic. I've always wanted a bottle of REPLICA because the packaging is indescribable and the scents are lovely. Beach Walk is the perfect scent that screams "I'm ready for summer" in my opinion. For $126, it's surely a bottle I use with ease and not very often but the scent is light and long lasting so I'll be using this for many seasons to come.

Thanks for taking the time to read about my spring favorites and don't hesitate to share your own!

  2. I love the REPLICA line of perfumes, but Lipstick On is my favorite. I've never used the other products, but since I don't really do makeup I may only do the lip balm.
