Jessica Desjardins’ May Hit List

If there’s one thing I can’t ever have enough of, it’s blush. This slim palette features five gorgeous shades of Stila’s iconic Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Cream that are perfect for Spring. They blend so beautifully into the skin for a fresh-faced glow and can also be worn on lips, making this a fantastic palette for traveling or keeping in your purse for touch-ups. I love using Petunia on my cheeks and pairing it with Gerbera on my lips.

My skin tends to become very temperamental as the weather changes. This new ultra-hydrating gel cream delivers the moisture my skin needs without feeling too heavy. It’s formulated with Gaspé Algae Extract, which is known to thrive in severe environmental conditions and lends the same resistance to skin when it needs it most. Plus, it feels cooling and refreshing as I apply it each morning!
Lise Watier HydraForce Hydra-Protective Creme-Gel
Spring is the perfect time to switch up your usual fragrance for something a little lighter and airy. This iconic perfume has been a go-to of mine come Spring for many years. It captures that effortless, Mediterranean vibe and leaves you feeling like you’re laying on a beach in Santorini with its sparkling notes of Sicilian lemon, apple and cedar.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette
If there’s one hair product I can’t live without, it’s mousse. My straight, flat hair definitely needs a boost of volume and grip to hold my style and this thickening formula from Living Proof has been my most recent go-to. Not only does it give lots of body and fullness, but it actually lasts all day without any stiffness or stickiness.
Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse
After a long, cold winter, I like to bring some colour and warmth back to my complexion with self-tanner. This trusty formula from St. Tropez delivers the most natural-looking results without blocking pores. I like to mix it into my face cream before I go to sleep and wake up the next morning with a hint of colour. I’ll use it several nights in a row to deepen the colour until I get the exact shade I want, then I maintain by using it twice a week.
St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Face Lotion
These long-wear liquid lipcolours are amazing! I already raved about them on my own website and have been wearing them all the time. They deliver amazing pigmentation with a satin texture—great for those who aren’t totally down with matte lipsticks but want something that is going to last all day. Plus, the shade range is amazing (my favourite is Candy Kiss)!
Lise Watier Baiser Satin Liquid Lipstick
I’ve been traveling a lot lately and on a recent trip to Paris I found my skin incredibly dry, dehydrated and desperately in need of some TLC. I wanted to pick up something to moisturize my skin and ended up with this plumping and repairing mask. I fell in love with it and have been using it regularly since I got home. I’m thankful Scarlet & Julia stocks Intitut Esthederm so I never have to be without it again!
