Does anyone else find themselves opting for a certain product because of the colour of the packaging? I've noticed that I tend to do that when it comes to buying boring products such as deodorants, I'll go for the prettier packaged ones. Another thing I've noticed is that I seem to have developed a thing for pink. I felt inspired to pick out some of my favourite pink coloured products & group them together after seeing a few other bloggers do similar things, Carrie I'm looking at you! I feel like I need to go & organise all of my things by colour now, theres something so satisfying about seeing products of a similar colour scheme together.
Although it's name suggests it would be more orange toned my all time favourite pink blusher is the NYX powder blush in Peach. If you've been reading my blog you'll have seen me mention this numerous times now, so I won't go into detail but click here to read more. Lip product wise I tend to opt for darker shades or just lip balm (Balmi Strawberry being my most used!) a berry toned pink that I wear for a quick wash of colour is the Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie. A lighter pink lip product that I wear when I'm feeling brave (yes, I have no problem wearing dark "vampy" lips but I get scared/feel out of my comfort zone to wear pink lipsticks!) is the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in the shade Elusive. I have too many pink polishes in my collection to pick out a favourite but I chose the Model's Own HyperGel in Pink Veneer to feature in this post because I've worn it loads & it has good wear time!
Soap & Glory products have a pink theme throughout their product range, so of course I had to include a few things! The Hand Maid Hand Sanitizer is one of those essentials I always have in my bag, I used to hate using sanitizers because of the strong alcohol scent but this one smells fruity & fresh. The Breakfast Scrub had to make an appearance, I have so much love for it! It's probably the best body scrub I've used, it's gritty but not too harsh that it hurts to exfoliate with & my skin is always left feeling much smoother. The Smoothie Star range is my favourite product group from S&G, I just can't get enough of the sweet vanilla/cocoa buttery/maple syrup scent. Texturising hair products have been raved about non stop in the blogosphere over the past few months. The insanely expensive Oribe one has probably been the most hyped, but at £38 a bottle there is just no chance I'm going to cave & get it! With so much attention being given to texturising products drugstore dupes were hunted down, Vo5 Give Me Texture being one of them. It's about £5 a bottle & feels a bit like hairspray when you first spray it but it gives instant texture & doesn't leave your hair crispy or feeling heavy with product residue. My final pink product is a boring one to end with, deodorant. Like I said at the start, I always go for prettier packaged ones, I guess it makes it more appealing when I go to buy it as who enjoys going shopping for the necessities such as deodorant, toothpaste etc etc!?
