Hello lovelies :D
Today I have for you a collaboration post. Lovely Gejba from Parokeets beauty blog had an awesome idea and most of slovenian bloggers agreed to participate. The idea is simple: we all write a post on the same day that has something to do with pink! I think that by now most of you know that October is breast cancer awareness month, which is associated with pink and that is why we are doing a pink collaboration. Breast cancer is a serious disease that affects more and more women each year, so do not forget to check yourself regularly!
I was deciding what to write about, for the longest time, until I settled for this post. Honestly, I wanted to do some make up and nail art, but I realized that I have no pink nailpolishes and I have no time to photograph a make up look (when I do have time the light is terrible...). So without further ado, here are top 7 pink beauty products that stole my heart.
L'OCCITANE EN PROVENCE DELIGHTFUL ROSE HAND CREAM
Honestly, I always knew that L'occitane hand creams are awesome, but I never owned one. There is no perticular reason, I guess they were not on my priority list. Nonetheless I was really happy when I recieved this gem on the Beautifull Bloggers MeetUp at the start of this month. Finally I can see what the fuss is about. While rose is not my favourite scent I still like it,because it is not overpowering. The cream is on a thicker side, but it still soaks into my hands nicely and it leaves them soft and smooth. A definite must have for winter months!
WET'N'WILD PETAL PUSHER EYESHADOW PALETTE
Ironically, the shade I am going to talk about here did not appeal to me at first. I am not somebody that likes pink, that means I also do not wear a lot of pink and when I saw this colour in person my first reaction was: NOPE! This is not going anywhere near my eyes! Oh how wrong I was... I decided to test the eyeshadow anyway and I am soo happy I did. It turned out this is my favourite eyeshadow from the palette. It is a highly metallic light pink that makes dark eyes pop like no other. Whenever I want to do a simple make up, or do not know what to wear on my eyes, I grab this eyeshadow and combine it with a matte brown in the crease. I can not imagine my make up life without this colour <3
SLEEK MAKEUP BLUSH - 846 MIRRORED PINK
Sadly this is a limited edition blush, but Sleek does have some blushes in their permanent range that are similar (I happen to own some). I chose this one because it is the most pink of the bunch and it also happens to be my favorite pink blush of all time. Lately I have been using it a lot, because it gives a really nice pink flush to the cheeks with a bit of shimmer. You want a healthy looking skin? Apply Mirrored Pink and BAM! You just became the prettiest girl on the block.
I <3 MAKEUP - I <3 OBSESSION PALETTE - PURE CULT
I like to wear colours, but pink is (ironicaly) out of my comfort zone. Not bright pinks, I like those, but soft, innocent pinks, they are too much for me. Well I do step out of my comfort zone sometimes with a bit of help from this palette. A few of the eyeshadows are duds, but the whole top row is really nice and I use it for my everyday looks more and more.
ESSENCE I <3 EXTREME CRAZY VOLUME MASCARA
My go to mascara. Do I need to say more? Well it is true that I do not like the brush a lot, since it is big and I poke myself into the eye with it on a regular basis, but other than that I like what this mascara does to my lashes. They are not velouptuous as all hell after I use this mascara, but it does give me as much volume and lenght I need. Considering I wear glasses most of the time I do not want my lashes to touch the glasses constantly, which does happen with other mascaras... and it annoys me to no end. As a fun fact: this mascara was long time the only pink item in my make up collection.
REAL TECHNIQUES - BLUSH BRUSH
This might be the most loved brush in my brush collection. I just love the fact how versitile it is. Yes it is called a 'blush brush', but a brush with only one purpose is boring. I like to use it for contour, bronzer, powder, highlighter or blush... so basically all the face powder products. The unique (in my collection) egg shape baffles me to this day. It is simply genious!
SLEEK MAKEUP BLUSH BY 3 - 363 PUMPKIN - SQUASH
Well the whole blush palette is one of my favorites, because of it's versitility, but since we are talking about pink... Squash! Honestly, when somebody says squash I do not think about pink, or at least I did not until I tried out this blush. While it looks scary in the pan it is one of the best pink blushes ever. Tiny shimmer that runs trough it just seals the deal for me, since I love slightly shimmery blushes. I would love to talk a little bit about the formula, but I think that by now everybody and their grandma knows how great Sleek blushes are. If you do not know the heavenly gift that are Sleek blushes then you must be living on another planet.
Thank you for reading. Do not forget to read posts from other bloggers, they did a really great job creating pink inspired posts!
Have a nice day :)
