Pretty In Pink: Summer Essentials

Pink screams summer to me, especially when it comes to make-up! I've picked out my favourite  pink and pink-packaged summer essentials:
Living Nature Lipstick in "Bloom"*, £19.50/3.9g
This creamy, petal pink lipstick gives a matte finish and is long-lasting. The vintage carnation shade is one of which that would suit most skin tones and it is perfect for summery make-up looks. This lipstick contains nourishing waxes and oils to keep lips looking lovely!
PHB Organic Lipgloss in "Grace", £14.50/10g
This icy pink lipgloss is great worn alone for a minimal make-up look, or worn over your lipstick to enhance the finish. This shade is the perfect pink-nude neutral and is really easy to wear. PHB lipglosses are very well-pigmented and contain no carmine. With nourishing oils and shea butter, this is a real treat for the lips!
INIKA Mineral Blush Puff Pot in "Pink Pinch", £17/3g
This coral blush has a slight shimmer and is perfect for creating a radiant, sun-kissed finish. The puff pot packaging is adorable and travel-friendly.
Little Ondine Nail Polish in "Honeymoon", £9.50/
This hot pink nail polish with blue undertones is the epitome of a gorgeous summer - in a bottle! The Barbie-pink shade will compliment your tan and there is no need for toxic nail polish remover, because these awesome little polishes can be peeled off with ease!
Botanicals Rose & Camellia Cleansing Melt*, £24/60g
This cleansing melt is such a gorgeous product and does an excellent job of removing the day's make-up and grime, leaving skin feeling soft and cared for.
Sweet Cecily's Pink Clay Mask, £5.95/45g
This pot of mixed red and white clays is perfect for sensitive skin; the clays gently draw out impurities and toxins from the skin, leaving a clearer and brighter complexion behind. You can really have fun with powdered masks like this and try out different DIY combinations!
ilā Pure Relaxation Bath Soak, £9.60/150ml
Who said you can't take a long soak in the bath during summer?! I find baths the perfect way to relax, especially after a long week of night shifts. This fragrant bath soak, housed in a hot pink bottle, will ease all your troubles away with the delicate aroma of apricot, vetivert and petitgrain.

What are your pink summer essentials?!

  1. The ila bath soak is one of my favourites. So nuturing and calming x

  2. Such a fun concept for a blog post! The way you have styled this post is awesome also. I love anything girly and pink! Barbie pinks are perfect for summer time I agree! The lipstick, nail polish and cleansing melt look and sound particularly lovely. :-) xx
