Spring Style on a Budget

Happy first day of Spring! Just two weeks from now will mark ONE year since I moved from SoCal to Denver, and I just can't believe how fast it has gone. I am excited for spring, and even more anxious for summer. Since moving, there have been many things I have wanted to do, and now I am beginning to actually DO them :) In two weeks, I will have the awesome fortune of seeing Michael Buble at the Pepsi Center, and then a week from then cheering for my Lakers when they come to Denver. Other activities on the list for the next few months include Dodger games, SATC with my twin, Lady Gaga and U2!

Today, I was in the mood to pick up some new nail polish during my bi-weekly (ok, daily)  Target trip, and saw this most awesome color: 

Since the minty and jade colors are trendy this season, I am excited to try it out! For other spring nail polish trends, check out my article on Associated Content: 2010 Spring Nail Polish Trends

After poking around some magazines, I came across Instyle's "10 Under $10: Spring Beauty Must-Haves" so I thought I would share them here :) Most of the products can be found at Target and ULTA, as well as Victoria's Secret and Avon.

The Art of Spring Color Collection by essie

Pastel colors are perfect for spring. The essie brand is a bargain buy- which means you can buy tons of colors!

ONE Hand & Body Lotion

A new product at Target, ONE lotion contains essential oils and shea butter to keep the body soft and even comes in Earth-friendly packaging. 

Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss

Who doesn't love shimmery glosses? Neutrogena glosses contain antioxidants, which means the lips are being nourished while looking HOT. 

Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Shampoo and Conditioner

I never used to notice humidity back home, but now in Denver I wish there was SOME for my poor skin. Nevertheless, for those of you in humid climates, flyaways are messy and uncute! Frizz-Ease reduces frizz and contains Olive Oil to add moisture to the hair. 

Victoria's Secret Life is Pink Rollerball Fragrances

If you have limited space in your purse, no worries. Victoria's Secret sells compact fragrance rollerballs so you always smell so fresh and so clean. 

Avon Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick

If you know someone who sells Avon, check out their Impact line. The iridescent pearls add a subtle shimmer to the lips. 

Aveeno Nourish + Style Smoothing Shine Cream

The lightweight cream is perfect for smoothing out hair without the feel of a heavy or oily product. 

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Concealer

The three concealer colors work well to hide all skin imperfections, and are conveniently packaged together. The orange shade neutralizes skin tone, while pink highlights and yellow hides dark under eye circles. 

RoC Pore Minimizing Cream Cleanser

Reduce the appearance of large pores with a minimizing cleanser. The creamy formula makes it gentle for any skin type and alpha hydroxy acids remove dead skin cells from the face. 

Maybelline New York XXL Pro Extensions Mascara

For thick, luscious lashes check out Maybelline's XXL Mascara. The basecoat preps the lashes and the lengthening mascara coats each lash- so no more clumps!

There are so many products out there that work great, and do not cost much. I know for sure I will be picking up a few items next time I visit my fave store- Target!
