My Smelly Products Tag

Leanne Talks Beauty  tagged me in her My Smelly Products Tag last week and I thought it’d be fun to do, so here are my favourite smelling products.

1

Fudge Urban Seasalt spray – This smells wonderful, it actually smells like Malibu and when my hair catches the wind and I get a fresh whiff of it I’m transported back to holidays.

Soap & Glory  IFoam Body Wash – This smells like peaches and cream, it’s delicious, I actually just want to eat it but it probably doesn’t taste so good! It also washed really well and the scent does stick around for a good while after.

Original Source  Raspberry and Vanilla Milk – This is probably my favourite, it smells incredibly, do you remember those Campino sweets that smelt amazing? This smells like that only better because it’s raspberry not strawberry.

Avon  Rivera Goddess Body Spritz – I Love this budget scent, it lasts ages and smells really summery.

Ghost Perfume – This is my husbands favourite perfume of mine, it has an elegant floral scent and it now holds plenty of memories for me.

Superdrug Hand & Nail Cream – My colleagues love when I start dishing this out, it smells sweet and beautiful, it’s also actually a pretty good hand and nail cream.

The Body Shop Mango Body Butter – This has got to be another of my top ones, I love fruity smells as you’ve probably gathered by now, this one is sweet and definitely smells like mango!

L’Occitane Hydration Cream – This smells quite natural and earthy, it’s quite subtle actually but both my husband and I adore the smell.

It’s in the Bag!

Maisieskit

1Tonight I’m looking into our reviewer and photography student Maisie’s makeup bag.

I was excited when I first caught a glimpse of this kit, I’ve already spotted some old favourites and some that I’m now eager to try! Maisie has a beautiful natural look that I often envy, she looks effortless but from a first look at everything she uses it’s clear that time goes into her flawless appearance.

There’s a really good range of budget and department store brands in Maisie’s kit, everything from Benefit to L’Oreal.  In no particular order, tonight I’m going to look at her top 3.

3First up is the Thick & Fast Mascara by Soap and Glory. Maisie confesses that she’s tried out a lot of mascaras but this is by far one of the best. The reasons behind this are numerous, starting with how easily it builds up without any sign of clumping. It also creates long lashes in no time at all. Maisie uses it along side They’re Real mascara for greater definition.

Next up is a product I’m not dying to try – Soap & Glory Hocus Focus Instant Visual Flaw-Softening Lotion. This is an interesting product in that it does so many different things and can be used in several different ways. It can be used as a cheekbone highlighter, mixed with moisturiser to brighten skin or mixed in with foundation for an on-trend flawless dewy look.

Maisie loves that this product softens fine lines and reduces the size of pores without any shimmer added into the mix. It creates a lovely matte finish which suits he overall look. Maisie applies it over Porefessional but under her foundation for an effortless flawless result.

Last up is a foundation that I myself have struggled with but having read Maisie’s prep I may give it a go again using the products she uses as a base first. Maisie adores this foundation, she achieves a an even airbrushed result every time, especially after using Hocus Focus first! This again doesn’t contain any shimmer that Maisie isn’t a fan off so it’s utterly perfect for her.

I’ve really enjoyed tonight’s snoop and want to say a huge thank you to Maisie for her time tonight. Next week we look into a local makeup artists professional kit, I’ve just had everything over for it and it’s going to be a good one!
