Valentine's Day: These Are a Few of my Favorite *Pink* Things!

 photo PicMonkeyCollagepinkfavs_zps8852bd09.jpgThroughout the year, I'm not a hardcore pink gal. I look fine in pink, love me some pink cheeks, & I don't have a bad relationship...we just aren't besties. However, when Valentine's Day rolls around, I embrace it. The softness of baby pink, the flash of hot pink, & the ease of neutral pinks are absolutely perfect for the holiday. I thought it would be fun to show you some of my favorite things...all of them pink of course. I tried to link to reviews & such for your convenience too so that's what they will link to. Keep reading to see my picks for eyes, lips, cheeks, fragrances, nails, & more!

Eyes: Some of my least worn eyeshadows are pink. I feel like they can be super tricky. When I want a perfect pink, these are the shades I real for. The Coastal Scents Palette is called Think Pink. A dozen beautiful shades & 8 of them are pink. The black is a favorite, it has pink shimmer. I didn't swatch it but check out this eyeshadow look I did here using this palette that is definitely gloriously pink.

Fragrance: Aquofina Pink Sugar, Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Temptation, & Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! perfumes. All of these are pink, girly, & super different. Pink Sugar is totally sweet & will make you smell like the best candy/baked good/sugary treat ever. VS Very Sexy Temptation is my newest aquired fragrance & boy is it aptly named! It smells so sexy & feminine, perfect for a date night! Oh, Lola! from Marc Jacobs is positively bright & perfect for daytime wear.

Miscellaneous: 

Carol's Daughter Ectasy Shea Souffle: I got this in a Glossybox awhile back & although I didn't think much of it at the time...I've since come to terms with my love. This smells like innocence with sugared strawberries. I'm absolutely in love & the texture is divine. This super light scent is perfection. I'll be picking up a new container & also a fragrance soon!

Beauty Blender: I don't think I need to explain this fabulous pink sponge soon! This is a backup as I use them until they completely beg for mercy & just seeing it in all that hot pink glory makes me oh so happy. The perfect way to apply foundation, sheer out thick foundation, & give a natural look. I haven't found a dupe...& you know I've tried.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush: I love dry shampoo. When my fine hair just won't do what I want it gives me volume. When I have extra oils, it eliminates them. & honestly, it often just makes my hair look generally better. Batiste Dry Shampoo is fabulous in every scent but Blush is really something special. Super feminine & floral it will instantly make you feel all girly inside.

Anastasia Hypercolor Hair Powder In The Pink: I love this color so much & I feel so rocker glam when I use it. I'm not even going to talk about it anymore...GO LOOK HERE!

Well there we have it!  Turns out...I kind of love pink! What are your favorite pink products? Are there any int his post you'd like to try? What makes you think of Valentine's Day?
