Scented Make-up… Yummy!

By | May 10, 2011

Hey, hey there my lovelies! I thought I’d quickly share this crazy & recent obsession of mine! It seems to me that every morning when I’m getting ready for work… I’m picking up certain products in general. The other day it all CLICKED! Basically, I seem to be drawn to gorgeous scented make-up!

Although smell is one of the hardest things (ever) to describe, I’ll try my best to give you a run down of my top 5 scented make-up bits.

1. Lasting Colour Lip Stick, Collection 2000 (RRP £2.99) – I have two different colours in these & they smell divine! They smell like GUMMY WORMS… It’s like having sweets on your lips, you can’t really go wrong.

2. Délice de Poudre Bronzing Powder, Bourjois (RRP £6.99) – This is possibly the best matte bronzer out there in drugstores/chemists! Not only does it not break the bank but it also smells like CHOCOLATE! Okay, fair enough it doesn’t smell exactly like Lindt or Galaxy, but you can tell it’s got some chocolate smelling elements in there :)

3. Girl Meets Pearl, Benefit (RRP: £24.50) – I’ve only got a travel size of this so not sure how much it exactly is but this little baby not only acts as a highlighter but it also smells like SHERBET! Do you remember those really long, rainbow sherbet straw things? Exactly that! It makes me want to eat it so bad :oops:

4. Bella Bamba, Benefit (RRP: 23.50) – I’m sure you’ve seen my post on this (… if not click HERE)… But this little blush, full of amazing pink & gold pigments smells like WATERMELON. A very sweet watermelon to be precise. Whenever I put this on, I can always seems to get a whiff of it for the first few hours of the day. I top this up on my cheeks for two reasons… For the 3D pink & the gorgeous smell!

5. Pageant Lip Tar, OCC (RRP: £13 from Filthy Gorgeous but cheapest, £8.59 from GENIE COSMETICS) – I’m sure you’ve heard be rave on about lip tars in my previous posts (HERE & HERE). Since then my collection has grown. Not only do I absolutely love these tars (even though they can stain), they smell uber MINTY. I quite like having mint on my lips, like Carmex too, it gives me a minty, fresh feeling (excuse the overused phrase, but it’s so true!). I’m thinking to do a lip tar post with lots of swatches for you all :) But will probably do it a little later as I think I’ve done too many lip stick posts recently :oops:

Do you have any LOVELY SMELLING make up I should know about? Not that I need to add to my stash, but I’m just curious as to what else is out there ;)

P.S – I’m totally on a shopping ban this month (& possibly June too!!) – I’m shopped out for the time being… I sure hope I can do it, ha!

    I love the scent of Bella Bamba! I don’t have any scented products but I love the smell of Mac lipsticks and of Vaseline Rosy Lips (I think it smells like Turkish delight!) x

    • Kaushal

      You know, I always thought the Rosy Lips didn’t smell very rosy, LOL you totally got that right! I’ve never got a smell from MAC lip sticks but I’ll deffo have to check that in the morning :) x

      Awww, that would be amazing! Maybe after my shopping ban?? x

    I love the smell of girl meets pearl. It smells like bubblegum to me :) xx

    • Kaushal

      Yummmm, I’m deffo gonna get full size of it x

  • Elle

    Bit of a strange questions… but what shade Boujsoir bronzer do you use? I think we have pretty similar skin colour and I’m never sure about shades with bonzers and blushes – i’m a bit of a loserish noob really (who probs sounds like a right weirdo!) haha xxx

    • Kaushal

      I use the lightest one (52 I think?) – it looks fine on my skin! I’m NC30/35 in MAC if that helps?? Aww, no you don’t doll x

  • http://www.glamsam87.blogspot.com Sami

    I’m obsessed with the scent of Benefit’s Coralista… Mmmm! and MAC lippies smell like sweets/ice cream lol

    Good luck with the shopping ban – I’ve put myself on one too… guess it’ll give us a chance to rediscover old favourites :-(

    • Kaushal

      I’m totally gonna have to have a sniff of that for sure! I’m deffo going to be rediscovering :) xx

    I love good scented makeup products. Have you tried Illamasqua blushes? They have a lovely vanilla smell, a bit like MAC lippies. Also Bourjois blushes, they have a great sweet lolly smell.

    • Kaushal

      I smelt my MAC lippies today but I can’t quite put my finger on it?? I wish they smelt like sweets! LOL x

    I used to use the Bourjois bronzer too, was addicted to the chocolate/coconutty smell =D
    i’d defo recommend Carmex Strawberry (smells like nesquik strawberry milkshake), urban decay lip junkies (minty and taste really sweet) or the UD lip envy (stains), theyre sweet and dont dry out your lips. Finally, of course my handbag staple- Sleek Pout Polishes, smell gorgeous and some of em taste yum!

    I realise now that all of my suggestions are lip products, but a girl can never have too many ;)

    • Kaushal

      OMG, I use the strawberry carmex all the time – it’s done wonders to my lips! LOL I suppose they smell nice because they’re easily lickable haha x

  • Lyla

    yep great smelling make up is addictive! ummm dat bronzer actually looks like chocolate as well! ;)

    • Kaushal

      I know right? I love how it looks like a bar of chocolate :D

  • http://danigrimaldo.blogspot.com dani

    I definitely want to try the Bourjois bronzer. What shade do you have?

    Goodluck with the make up ban honey… I need (more like, want) to buy some new make up, but just essentials!

    • Kaushal

      I have the lightest one (number 51) – I’m a MAC 30/35 :) LOL I’m doing okay with the ban, but always want to buy pretty things! xx
