Sonia Kashuk Grand Bazaar Illuminating Loose Powder

Sonia Kashuk Grand Bazaar Illuminating Loose Powder ($12.99) is a limited edition loose illuminating powder that launches with the Sonia Kashuk Grand Bazaar Fall 2015 Collection recently.

I’m such a mush for loose highlighting powders! I have a ton of them but that never stops me from wanting more and this delightful soft, rose gold beige shade (although in my swatches photos it looks almost lilac!) is just too lovely pass up on.

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.

Lancome L'Absolu Rouge lipstick

I decided I wanted a new Fall lipstick shade so I purchased Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Advanced Hydrating Lipstick in Sienna Ultime. So yeah, I totally have a ton of Fall lipstick colors already but when the season rolls around I just feel like I need every single shade of nude, orange, burnt orange, copper, and brown based lipstick in the entire makeup universe.

I recently went to Nordstom to get the new La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum Intense but sadly they didn’t have it but of course, I couldn’t leave without looking at the lipsticks and that’s when Sienna Ultime decided it needed to come home with me.

The #ISmellPretty Movement

So I kinda sorta stole this the idea for the #ISmellPretty Movement from my friend Paris from My Women Stuff. She started sharing her packed lunches on Instagram and using hashtag #pbmademepacklunch. Her idea was not only to share food pr0n (I like to take pictures of my food so I’m so into viewing food pictures that others take) but also to inspire others share their lunches and also to pack healthier lunches and save money in the process.

I loved how her reader’s started using the hashtag to share their packed lunches! She just started a really fun little movement on Instagram that her reader’s and fellow foodies could use to communicate and share.

I kinda started sharing my daily fragrance choices on Instagram but I haven’t done so in a while. I’m really passionate about fragrance probably sometimes more than makeup. I have a very vast (and disgustingly expensive) collection of European perfumes, high end fragrances, and many, many indie brands perfume and perfume oils from places like Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie.

So…

I propose a fun little project and I hope you’ll maybe join in it with me.

I’d love to implement the #ISmellPretty hashtag across Twitter and Instagram. Tell me what fragrance you’re wearing today, tell me what it smells like, introduce me to something new, or some old favorite and use hashtag #ISmellPretty. If you can maybe Instagram a photo of the bottle (pictures are always fun) too that would be awesome!

I’ll be doing this daily from now on in the hopes I might introduce you to some unique, possibly obscure, and fun fragrances!

I’m really, really excited to see your fragrance choices and maybe you can introduce me to something new or tempt me to try out something I’ve never smelled before!

And hopefully I’ll inspire you to try out something new too!
