Refresh Your Spring Makeup Routine with Kohl’s

Happy Friday, friends! Today I’m taking a detour from outfits to share some new beauty products I’ve been testing out from Kohl’s.

I’m calling it a detour because I still have some spring fashion, but the focus of the post is on the new beauty products I found that I want to share with you.

Kohl’s isn’t the first retailer to come to mind when I think of shopping for makeup and beauty products, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they actually have a strong beauty and fragrance department.

You’ll see familiar brands like Lorac, Pixi, Pur, Popsugar, and more. They also carry my beloved Simplehuman Sensor Makeup Mirror.

I actually got mine as a Christmas present from my mom, and I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

The magnification is perfect, and I rely on it now for precise makeup application. I also love how it simulates natural sunlight, so you can see what your makeup really looks like in the daylight.

One of the first products I put in my cart when I started shopping for this post was this Lorac Pro Palette With Mini Eye Primer. I was drawn to the mix of colors, and I’ve had fun experimenting with different combinations.

The colors are highly pigmented, and they go on smoothly. As an added bonus, it comes with an eye shadow primer.

I also ordered two lipsticks to try out — the Cargo Swimmables Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cape Town and the Lorac Alter Ego Lip Gloss in Godddess.

The Cargo matte lipstick was interesting — I put it on my arm to test the color, and I couldn’t get it to wipe off until I used an oily eye makeup remover. It definitely has staying power! That said, when I put it on my lips, I didn’t care for how dry it made my lips feel, so I ended up putting the Lorac lip gloss on top.

I typically prefer high gloss and moisturizing lipsticks, so the matte lipstick isn’t for me, but it did go on well and look nice. Personally, I preferred the Lorac. It’s very moisturizing, and the color I chose is pretty.

I put a call out on my Insta Story for some makeup recommendations at Kohl’s, and one of my friends said she swears by the Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Poreless Primer.

I also read good reviews on the Pur 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation and Pur Airbrush Powder Foundation Makeup Brush, so I decided to try them all.

The primer is everything it claims to be and more. I love how easily it goes on and the way it instantly smoothes out my skin. It looks like it was airbrushed.

I was also pleased with the Pur mineral foundation, and I have to say, I’m quite impressed with myself for choosing a perfect match to my skin tone online.

I went with the color they call Light, and it was a really good match. I’m wearing it in all of these pictures. I like the brush a lot too. It made the application super easy, and it covers pretty good for a powder foundation.

It’s definitely something I’d use for more casual days and when I want lighter coverage, but it does a good job and looks very natural.

Lastly, the J by Jennifer Aniston Eau de Parfum is a really nice fragrance if you’re looking for something fresh and light. I’ve had it for several years, and it’s one of my favorites.

I’ve linked the outfit I’m wearing below, along with all the beauty products I shared in this post.

This stripe stitched hooded cardigan is a great little spring sweater. I love the details in the knit, and it’s comfortable and hits at a flattering length — just below the hips. I love this pink, but it also comes in cream, navy, and taupe. Also, these shoes are a great budget-friendly option for nude ballet flats.
