Merle Norman’s Moist Lip Color in Cotton Candy

We're glad we read the packaging before scooping up this lip color — otherwise, we might've eaten it. Yep, it's a cotton candy-colored formula designed to give sheer color and shine with a touch of moisture.

jane iredale PurePressed Blush in Cotton Candy

We love a good subtle pink blush to give our cheeks that just-walked-in-the-wind bit of color. You can even brush it over your eyes for quick color on your lids.

jane iredale Eye Gloss in Pink Silk

This sweet-and-subtle eye gloss is formulated to give a bit of shimmer without creasing or smearing. It's great for those days when you want color, but don’t have time — or just don't want to go all-out with your eye makeup.
