But what good would it be if we kept our of-the-moment faves to ourselves? Each month, we share our current obsessions in hopes that you’ll love them just as much as we do. Here, our top picks for April.


April Beauty Picks

Soft Hair Spray



"I love the scent and hold of Ouai's hair spray. The mousse is amazing too!" —Rachel Zoe, Editor-in-Chief

Stretch Concealer



"The surprisingly sheer, lightweight formula of this concealer provides great coverage without a chalky finish. The result is flawless, dewy skin which is always a spring beauty goal, right?" —Nicky Deam, Editorial Director

Lash Paint Mascara



"I'm obsessed with Tarteist macara—it literally feels (and looks) like I have fake lashes on." —Laura Lajiness, New York Editor

Transform Luxe Premium Sunless Tan



"I'm not quite sure where March went, but somehow we're three weeks from Coachella—aka time to break out the Xen-Tan. I love their daily formula to ease into your tan, because going from 0 to Gisele overnight is kind of awkward when everyone knows you were at the office all week, not Bali." —Jaclyn Decell, Social Media Manager

Fruit Pigmented Pomegranate Oil Anti Aging Lipstick


100% Pure

"This lipstick is a really pretty pinky-brown, a great nude hue for spring. The shade makes my lips look fuller and the formula is super soft and smooth. Plus, the pigment is made from fruit, which is so unique and great for the lips." —Amy Lee, Associate Fashion Editor

Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder


Hum Nutrition

"I have an inside-out philosophy of beauty, which is why I'm really into this superfood powder that you can mix into a daily glass of water for glowing skin." —Erin Nicole, Red Carpet Editor

Liftra Contour Shaper


Dr. Jart+

"I've been intrigued by the idea of facial massaging (which improves circulation and stimulates your muscles) as a means to achieve happier, bouncier skin, so naturally I had to try this off-the-wall product. I've been using it for the past couple weeks and love the way it relieves tension in my face—plus, it's really fun to use." —Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor

Boy Brow



"I get my eyebrows tinted, but in between appointments this product keeps them looking on point. I usually put it over my Anastasia brow pencil, but if I'm going for a more natural look I'll use it alone." —Sam Corbett, Graphic Designer

Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter



"This highlighter has been sitting in my drawer for some time now, mostly because I've been skeptical of the pastel rainbow color, but wow—I tried it for the first time last weekend and I am hooked. It really highlights without looking glittery. I was even able to dust it on my cupid's bow without looking crazy." —Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor

Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones


Yves Saint Laurent

"I'm obsessed with this new bronzer powder from YSL. I use it instead of blush on my cheekbones for a glowy, sun-kissed effect." —Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor
