Does it feel like you blinked and suddenly it was April? Yeah, me too. But now that the dreary, cold wintry days and Daylight saving time are both behind us, we can all bask in the bright, bold, and colorful glory that is spring beauty. (Loved you winter palettes, mean it!) In fact, most of the
March beauty product launches celebrate the warmer temperatures and the sunnier days ahead. So if you are ready to trade in the deeper-hued, richly pigmented, and thicker textured eyeshadows, lipsticks, and moisturizers for its lighter, dewier, and more shimmery counterparts, you're in luck. This roundup is filled with everything you need to spruce up your vanity and makeup bag for spring.
So, what did March have in store for beauty lovers? A slew of glossy lip tints (care of Dior Beauty and Chanel), a new long-lasting brow formula from Anastasia Beverly Hills, an oil-free foundation from Clinique that's packed with skin care ingredients, and a cannabis-infused primer from Milk Makeup that's getting a ton of hype. And that's just the beginning, folks.
Here are Bustle's favorite picks from everything that came out in March for what you need to add to your makeup, skin care, and hair routine right now.
Drunk Elephant Slaai™ Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser with Bamboo Booster™
Drunk Elephant launched a butter cleanser this month and it's a good one, especially for those of us who love a melty, rich makeup-removing cleansing balm. It's made with antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and oils as well as a blend of marula and baobab oil to soothe and hydrate your skin while you cleanse. Once mixed with water, the cleanser turns into a milky consistency that promises to remove the most stubborn, water-resistant makeup formulas. It won't strip your skin or leave you feeling dry.

This palette has it all — 18 buildable earth-tone shades with matte, metal, and chrome finishes.
Chanel Beauty Rouge Coco Flash
Chanel Beauty's newest lipstick is precisely what your lips want to be wearing this spring. It's got the shine of a gloss with the intensity of a lipstick, and it comes in a slew of bright, brilliant shades (to match the flowers that are blooming right outside your window, no doubt).
This new nail polish invention from Olive & June is a total game-changer, folks. For those of you who swear you can't paint your own nails at home, behold the Poppy — a universal nail polish bottle handle that will help you more easily paint your nails, even with your non-dominant hand. Pop it on top of your favorite nail polish bottle and go.
Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW® Gel
Anastasia Beverly Hills has added a new brow product that you're definitely going to want to try. It's the same formula as its beloved DIPBROW pomade, but in gel form, so you can easily swipe it onto your brows without having to use a brush and pot.

Innisfree Vivid Cotton Ink
This new launch from innisfree is unlike other matte liquid lipsticks you've tried before. While it does deliver a rich layer of color upon application, it feels smooth and velvety and won't dry out your lips. I've been using them nonstop since they landed on my desk!
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist Intense Deluxe Edition
Attention, Jurlique fans! Their best-selling rosewater balancing mist is available in a limited-edition bottle and it's too pretty to pass up. The light pink bottle is inspired by the rose petals that are grown in Jurlique’s botanical fields in South Australia and harvested specifically for the mist.

Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Essence
People go absolutely bonkers for Vintner's Daughter's Active Botanical Serum. It has such a cult following that the company has been fully and successfully operating by producing just the one product. But this month, they debuted their second offering: an Active Treatment Essence made to complement the serum and together, replace your entire skin care routine. It's made with over 30 active botanical ingredients and claims to be able to do it all: exfoliate, brighten, firm, hydrate, and feed the skin.
Clinique Even Better Refresh™ Hydrating and Repairing Makeup
Clinique's newest foundation might be your go-to when the temperatures start heating up. It features a waterproof, oil-free formula packed with skin care ingredients that work to add moisture back into your skin while also smoothing the skin's surface. It's available in 27 different shades and is fit for all skin types.
This primer from the KUSH collection is made with a hemp-derived cannabis seed extract that plumps and smooths the skin, prepping it for makeup. It's also got aloe water, cherry blossom, hyaluronic acid, and B vitamins to give your skin that extra boost of hydration.
Huda Beauty Matte Power Bullet Lipstick
Can you believe this is Huda Beauty's first-ever bullet lipstick?! Of course, it's not just any ordinary lippie either. In true Huda fashion, it's infused with multi-reflective glitter and kaleidoscopic pearl pigments for extra shine, plus sweet almond oil for hydration and comfort.

Swear by Peace Out's Acne Healing Dots? They've got a new patch that you might be equally obsessed with. These oil-free microneedling brightening dots are infused with niacinamide and licorice extract, so it'll help lighten the appearance of dark spots sometimes as quickly as a few uses.
Peach & Lily Power Calm Hydrating Cleanser
This new cleanser from Peach & Lily does exactly what it sounds like it's going to do — cleanse, hydrate, and calm your skin. It was super important for Alicia Yoon, Peach & Lily founder, to create a cleanser that didn't strip your skin or disrupt the skin barrier, so she worked with a lab to formulate this powerful, yet gentle, sulfate-free cleanser.
Tarte Cosmetics Babassu Foundcealer™ Skincare Foundation SPF 20
Tarte's Shape Tape is legendary in the beauty world, so when the makeup brand announced it was launching a concealer-foundation hybrid, fans went wild. The best part? The formula is as good as the hype. It's lightweight and flexible for days when you want a more natural finish, but buildable enough if you feel like rocking a full face of makeup.

How does it work? There are infrared light beam strips along the sides of the brush to speed heat deeper into the hair, but with less damage.
Supergoop! Shimmershade SPF 30

It coms in three shades and is infused with SPF 30, so you should definitely grab one for your next tropical vacation or beach getaway.
Neogen Real Vita C Powder Lemon
Take your Vitamin C obsession to the next level with this innovative launch from K-Beauty brand, Neogen. It's a powder, which means it contains 17 percent ascorbic acid (aka PURe vitamin C) and it won't oxidize until you mix it with your favorite toner or essence. How cool is that?!
