A Touch of Pink - Embracing Girlie Products

DSCF4735

Usually, pink is not a colour I’d be naturally drawn to.  Don’t get me wrong I like pink, it’s just not my favourite. However recently, I've noticed myself being drawn to all things pink and girlie whether it’s product or packaging I just cannot stop using it! Maybe it’s my way of clinging on to the last few remaining weeks of summer or maybe my inner girly girl is breaking out, either way here is some of the pretty in pink products I've been loving.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish in ‘Boom Boom’

For me, this is the perfect pink nail polish. It’s bright and fun but still has a sophisticated grown up look to it, so it’s perfect for wearing to work or at the weekend. The Sinful Colors Nail Polishes are a firm favourite on Beauty Aesthetic.  I love the formula of this nail polish. It lasts usually about a week on my nails with a good top coat and is just really really bright and fun. An instant mood brightener!

The Body Shop Colour Crush Eye Shadow in Mon Sherry*

When it comes to eye shadows I’m usually very predictably…brown. Though recently I’ve loved packing this gorgeous cranberry shade on and blending it out. It creates a real bohemian laid back murky smokey eye, perfect for summer nights out and this will transition beautifully into autumn. The rich berry tone of this really helps my green eyes pop and compliments my pale skin really well.

Purminerals Big Blink Mascara

Okay, so the product isn’t pink, but check out that hot pink packaging. We got sent one of these months ago and I got so hooked on the amazing argan infused formula that when I was in America earlier this summer I picked up another. This has definitely gained the title of my new favourite mascara. It conditions and lengthens my lashes like nothing before and although it’s not waterproof, it’s so long lasting.

Space NK Florabelle Handcream

Another product that's not actually pink…but it smells pink! This is almost like a perfume as the scent is so intense. I love this about it, but others may feel it’s a little overpowering. The formula is really hydrating, super rich and creamy and absorbs easily. For me this is a handbag essential, especially if you don’t want to carry perfume around with you.

Bath & Bodyworks Watermelon Lemonade Candle

Sorry! I know this isn’t the most accessible product for our readers outside the USA, but I just had to include it. This smells AMAZING, literally like summer in a jar. The scent really spreads throughout your home and I can’t wait to start burning the winter scents I picked up!

Burberry Light Glow Blush in Hydrangea Pink*

This blush is not for the faint hearted. This stuff is seriously pigmented, which takes the sting out of the price tag. It’s a gorgeous grown up pink that really contours and shapes the face. It’s silky and blends really well. I also love the rose scent and the sophisticated packaging.

Topshop Lip Crayon in Clueless

This makes wearing bright lip colours so easy as it’s such a precise application. The main reason why I love this is obviously because it’s the brightest, hottest most amazing pink lippy I’ve ever seen! This is a real modern, fresh take on a pink lip especially when you blot this over the top of lip balm.

Sephora Rouge Lipstick in Rende Vouz

Introducing my all time favourite lipstick. This is so easy to wear as the cool baby pink tone really flatters any makeup look. The formula is really moisturising and has good staying power. I can’t wait to get back to a Sephora so I can get my hands on another one of these as I’m currently rationing my useage!

Korres Japanese Rose Shower Gel

As you may already know the Korres shower gel’s are my favourites. They are the thickest, creamiest, most luxurious shower gel’s I’ve ever tried. Sami very kindly picked me this one up for my birthday and I was very excited to try it out as I’d never sniffed the rose scent. It did not disappoint, this smells gorgeous! It’s a very fresh, raw rose scent, not sickly sweet or artificial at all.

So there we have it, a whole load of girly pink goodness in one post! Also as it’s bank holiday Monday there’s no excuse for you not to indulge in a very girlie, very pink pamper day, enjoy!
