Pastels might not be so groundbreaking for Spring, but cool blues, pinks and greens are definitely the spring colors we can’t get enough of. From that list, icy green and mint products are our favorites because of how versatile they truly are. They’re great for color correcting, skin calming and, of course, excellent for a fun pop of minty-glow. Ahead, find the prettiest mint products to add to your routine this season.
Probably the greatest thing about minty-hued makeup is the color correcting benefits it provides — and this Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Green is no different. Apply to any red or irritated areas before dabbing on your regular concealer to cancel out discoloration.
Another minty green product with major benefits is the Plant Apothecary Detoxifying Matcha Mask. Prep your skin for makeup with this baby, and like the concealer, it will help soothe redness and even out overall skin tone.
If a pop of actual minty-glow on your eyes is more your style, the NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Envy will be one of your eyeliner BFFs. Apply this under your lower lash line for an unexpected pop, or spotlight it with a bold graphic wing.
L’Oréal Infallible Paint in Mint Detox is a versatile cream that’s great for any type of mint flair you want to add to your makeup, whether it’s a bold lid color or a breathtaking all-over eye look. Simply apply the mint tones with the OG doe foot applicator or onto an angled brush for more precision.
To bring a little icy sparkle down to your fingertips, Essie Mint Candy Apple is simply the perfect go-to polish color to fulfill all your thin-mint dreams. This polish is super opaque, gloriously creamy and gives any similar colored nail lacquer a run for its minty money.
