Tarte's new Aqualillies line is inspired by a team of synchronized swimmers, so this waterproof liner being named Splash makes perfect sense. The color stays on all day and brightens up your eyes with a touch of teal, totally on trend for spring, while the brush lets you apply the liner with no issues.

Though moisturizing your skin after a shower is key, sometimes the dry time in between applying lotion and getting dressed can be a killer waiting game. We're loving the Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer because the aerosol can applies like a sunscreen but feels like a lightweight lotion, plus the Cocoa option gives you a hint of a glow.

This mascara extends your lashes to be long and spider-like while keeping them in place for hours on end.

As of late, lip pencils seem to be taking off - and with good reason. With less smudging, less chance for melting and a ton of staying power, we're sold on the power of the pencils. NARS just released the Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils for spring, and the Mexican Rose color is bold enough to brighten up any warm weather look.

We take sunscreen very seriously, so when we find an SPF that gives our skin some benefits besides sun protection, we latch on quick. This lotion from Kate Somerville tightens with caffeine and moisturizes with mango butter, so your skin will be protected from the sun while it's being firmed and hydrated.

CC cream is quickly becoming a part of our daily beauty routine and this product from Smashbox upped the ante. With SPF 30, a dark spot correcting formula and the ability to keep you camera ready, this CC cream is taking the cake for spring.
(Smashbox CC Cream, $42, Smashbox.com)
There's no time like spring to adopt a new fragrance as your own, and this month we'll be turning to Burberry Body perfume.

Gucci Westman designed Revlon's new ColorStay collection, a palette of colors inspired by tropical getaways and sandy beaches. We're obsessed with the Sea Mist eyeshadow palette, seen above.
