Our top five spring beauty buys

This season, it's all about the flower factor


From cherry-blossom pink to deep plum, we're opting for a natural palette this spring – starting with these top five beauty buys at St David's Cardiff...

Spring beauty buys at St David's

1. Beautiful Movements Mineral Eyeshadow Dahlia Blossom, £7, Holland & Barrett

Fresh, flirty pink? Check. Vegan and cruelty-free? Check. This shimmery eyeshadow ticks all the boxes for a dreamy, springtime boho-chic look. Simply apply to the lid for a subtle sheen, dab on damp for a bolder colour or apply to the inner corner of the eye for a more youthful appearance.


2. Lip Comfort Oil Intense, £19, Clarins at Debenhams

For juicy, nourished lips, look no further than the Lip Comfort Oil Intense line from Clarins. There are five new spring-ready colours to choose from – Intense Nude, Intense Plum, Intense Pink, Intense Fuchsia and Intense Red – priced at £19 a pop. Mwah! 


3. Naked Cherry Palette, £24.08, Urban Decay at John Lewis

Boasting a dozen daring shades, from sparkly pink Bang Bang to the delicious matte plum Devilish, this warm palette begs for some experimentation.


4. British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask, £18, The Body Shop

Craving fresh country air? Infused with rose petals, rose essence and organic Community Trade aloe vera, this floral gel face mask brings to mind a classic English garden in bloom. Not only does it smell divine, but it's a must for moisturised, dewy skin – and completely vegan to boot. 


5. Cherry Blossom EDT, £18, Monotheme at M&S

We know not to judge a book by its cover, but we can't help swooning over this petal-heavy packaging. Monotheme's Japan-inspired eau de toilette is delicately sweet and floral, and just right for a picnic beneath the blossoms.
