Candyland: Candy Scented Makeup

Monday, November 28, 2016

This is something I've wanted to do forever - a post spotlighting two of my favorite things: sweets and makeup! Here, I've compiled some of my very favorite beauty products and the candy they smell like. This took me a couple weeks to put together and photograph - so I really hope you like it!

Prada Candy smells like caramel, vanilla
One of my very favorite perfumes, Prada's Candy has a very sweet scent with caramel and vanilla top notes.

Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm * and OCC Lip Tar smell like peppermint
So many amazing lip products smell of peppermints - but my favorites have to be Revlon's lip balms and OCC's lip tars.

Inglot Lip Products smell like gummy blueberry sharks

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss smells like starburst

Too Faced - The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette smells like chocolate
I absolutely HAD to include Too Faced's chocolate bar palette! They always completely knock it out of the park when it comes to themed packaging and product performance. I absolutely love this palette and it truly does smell exactly like chocolate. Anybody else eagerly awaiting the Too Faced peach makeup line?

MAC Liptensity Lipsticks * smells like vanilla
Now I cheated a little by using ice cream instead of candy - but I had to include MAC's famously amazing smelling vanilla lipsticks! Their new Liptensity Lipsticks are absolutely gorgeous too - featuring an wonderful range of shades from purple grays to berries, I'm absolutely smitten!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick smells like watermelon gummies/jolly ranchers
