Chocolate Beauty Products for Chocolate Week + A Giveaway! CLOSED

uhuhhhhh

Who knew it was National Chocolate Week? Well not me, until yesterday... so in aid of it and all things chocolatey I thought I would write a post on some wonderful products that smell and look like chocolate.
I also advise that whilst read this you eat chocolate to get the full benefits of the post!

No7 Stay Perfect Eye Mousse in Fudge (£9.00 - Boots here)
This is such a lovely, lovely product that I really do treasure in my collection. It's my favourite shade out of the whole range as it is such a warm shade that has that glow when it hits the light. Really perfect for the day time worn on it's own or with a dark matte brown in the socket for night.
Also this will last you for years (I've had my tube for at least 1 1/2 years) - but OF COURSE common sense is also needed, if the formula of anything changes in anyway then the bin is probably the best place for it! 
 
Jelly Belly Chocolate Pudding Body Cream (£6.99 part of set - here)
I don't love this but the whole set of products by Jelly Belly are nice, especially their candle range! This reminds me of Palmer Cocoa butter... but just not as nice, sadly. Totally unrelated but this Jelly Belly Toasted Mashmallow candle from Tesco is my current lust! Trust me, this smells AMAZING!

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker XLExtreme Plump Lip Gloss (£10.00 - Boots here)
Another product that smells of chocolate! This is great if you want to really plump up your lips on a night out - however be warned this does have quite a strong tingling effect! But it is the best high street lip plumper so if you don't mind the mad tingling then this is the one to go for!
 
Maybelline Forever Strong Pro in Rosy Sand (£4.09 - Boots here)
This has a slightly hint of dusky mauve in it but on the nails it just reminds me of chocolate milkshake. It's not too light or too dark - just perfect and it's such a nice formula for a nail polish. One of my favourite high street ones actually. Lovely and yummy!

Bourjois Delice de Pourdre Bronzing Powder 51 (£6.99 from Boots here)
This is my favourite bronzer without a doubt! I just love everything about this - the smell of cocoa in the bronzer, the shade, the packaging, how it's looks like chocolate and also how long this lasts for and also how I use the bronzer everyday and I still have a lot left! Also I kind of appreciate how it does look like chocolate but it doesn't look gimmicky or cheap - something I don't think a lot of brands could do! If you STILL haven't tried this and do like using bronzer, then treat yourself to it or even put it on your Christmas list!
 
Bourjois Delice de Pourdre Highlighting Powder (£6.99 free p&p from Amazon here)
When I first purchased this I did have high hopes and did feel disappointed when I tried it out. However I soon realized that it was unfair to compare it to the bronzing powder as of course it's not going to give as visible results because it's a highlighter and not a bronzer! So after that I did start enjoying it as intended as a highlighter. It is quite a subtle product as it does just give subtle highlight to the high points of the face but this is why I like it. It's not powdery or harsh... just a realistic highlighter! Really nice.

What's up for grabs? 

One large 500ml Anatomicals Dairy Milk Bliss LE Chocolate Truffle Bath Creme (which smells AMAZING!). I does look a little bit empty at the top but this is due to it leaking during delivery!
AND... some mystery chocolates. I will ask the winner which chocolates they prefer - white, milk, dark, diabetic etc etc.
