The days are getting longer and brighter, and there’s a balminess creeping into the air. Along with shedding your winter layers, you might be feeling restless in the beauty department — wanting to refresh your routine, play with new color palettes, or try out the latest trends. To help narrow down the best beauty picks of the season, we asked a few of the pros at Saks Fifth Avenue to share which products they’re most excited about right now.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick
This is my new favorite shade — Juicy Date — for a night out. I usually avoid lipsticks because they tend to be drying, but this one has the moisturizing feel of a balm.
Kilian Good Girl Gone Bad Refillable Spray
This fragrance has the most unique scent: a perfect mix of sweet and smoky. It also lasts forever without being overbearing and comes with a beautiful matching clutch.
Cellcosmet Switzerland Sensitive Day Moisturizer
I love the texture of this Saks-exclusive moisturizer: It’s hydrating and thick and isn’t greasy on my skin. I use it every morning because it also doubles as a great makeup base.
Estée Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment
This retinol treatment has been my secret weapon heading into my 30s. After just a few uses, I noticed wrinkles being diminished and my skin looking more even.
La Mer The Concentrate
To recover from the harsh winter, I mix a little bit of this rich treatment with my moisturizer. My skin feels stronger and hydrated, and looks less red.
Valmont Prime Regenera II
The daily moisturizer I use morning and night. This rich cream helps nourish my skin for the day ahead. And it’s available exclusively at Saks.
Tom Ford Shadow Extreme Eye Shadow
I rarely wear eye makeup during the workweek, so I like a fun eyeshadow look for weekend nights out. This gold shadow is the perfect earthy shade with a touch of glitter.
Le Labo Santal 33 Eau de Parfum
Santal 33 by Le Labo is almost iconic at this point, but it’s a new favorite for me. I like that it’s subtle yet has great staying power throughout the day, as well as the apothecary-style bottle.
Kiehl’s Since 1851 Calendula and Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque
After using this mask, my skin looks super-radiant and hydrated. It’s great for still-chilly days that can dry your skin out, and I love the gel-texture formula, which smells amazing.
Guerlain L’Or Radiance Concentrate
Not only is this concentrate hydrating, plumping, and priming, it’s also infused with 24-karat gold flakes. The cooling gel plus pure gold helps give my skin a natural glow and keep my makeup in tact all day.
ReFa S CARAT Face Roller
I’ve traded juice cleanses and contouring makeup for this amazing tool. The dual-headed roller helps define the angles of my face and helps debloat it almost instantly.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum
I’ve always felt like I needed a different perfume for day and night. But this scent is sophisticated yet bright and punchy, so I’m covered at work at 9 a.m. or when I’m out and about at 9 p.m.
Nars Liquid Blush
Nars does cheek color so well, and this formula is perfection. It’s the most natural rosy color I’ve ever owned — a little goes a long way.
Dior Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge
I think everyone should have their own go-to red lipstick, and Dior’s #999 is the perfect shade for my complexion.
Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream
Something about the smell of this cream reminds me of my mother. She took incredible care of her skin, so I know she’d approve.
