Re: Summer Favorites

Is it odd I always have to smell the Guerlain Maxi Lash mascara everytime I use it? I wish Guerlain came out with a perfume with that scent!

Re: Summer Favorites

It smells good!! Mascara usually smells not especially pleasant, so trying the Guerlain for the first time was a pleasant surprise! For some reason I think it smells like it should be a lotion smell rather than a perfume smell, but I would probably buy it either way, haha. 

Re: Summer Favorites

The first time I used it I didn't know anything about the scent.  For the first two minutes after putting it on I was puzzled where the nice scent was coming from.  Finally I realized it was the mascara, which surprised me because I'd never had a scented one before.  

Re: Summer Favorites

For some reason, I always have to smell my new mascaras when I first open them! Glad to know I'm not the only one Smiley Very Happy

Re: Summer Favorites

Hahaha are you kidding? Ever since companies have been putting out chocolate and vanilla smelling bronzers, I've been smelling every beauty product I've come across Smiley Very Happy

Re: Summer Favorites

Ahahaha, today I was swatching a bronzer and smelled it before realizing it was not scented at all and I probably looked insane. 

Re: Summer Favorites

I have to smell my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil every time I open it!! The crazy things these makeup companies do to us...

Re: Summer Favorites

LOL! I picked up the Too Faced Loves Sephora palette and started smelling the eyeshadows. It was too early, and in my defense, they had the chocolate soleil packaged in there.
