This morning I received an email from Sephora informing me that Cake Beauty was launching a Strawberry Shortcake line...TODAY! I imminently went to the Sephora website to stalk but couldn't find anything..maybe this is because Cake Beauty is a Canadian brand and only releasing the L/E collection in Canada? Who knows. After work, I headed to Metrotown (the busiest, craziest, most insane worst use of space mall in BC) to check out the collection, test the products out and see if they were actually worth the $. It's still February so, I have a ton of bath & lotions left over from Christmas that I have yet to use so purchasing more seems pretty redundant and I will only buy more if it is necessary.
This collection is clearly necessary.
I bought everything! I needed it! My old favorite body lotion was Philosophys "Beach Girl" still an amazing lotion, Cake Beauty is much softer..my arms and hands feel like silk.
Cake descibes the scent as warm vanilla cake, cream and fresh strawberries. MMMMM! I don't smell the vanilla, it's more like strawberry yogurt with sugar. It's so,so good. I've been using the lip conditioner all evening, it's much nicer than the MAC one I use. It's sheer but has that strawberry scent that I'm now obsessed with. I really hope Cake Beauty to come out with a perfume or a body spritzer is this intoxicating strawberry smell! I tried the bubble bath tonight with a Lush bath melt in MMM Melting Marshmellow Moment. PINK HEAVEN! the bath melt made the water so creamy while the Starwberry Shortcake bubble bath gave it that strawberry yogurt smell. Not going to lie, I loved it!
Perfect end to the day. I had about 4 hours sleep last night - it was worth it, I saw Best Coast and I officially have a new girl crush (it used to be Zooey Deschanel, it is now, Bethany Cosentino. Swoooon <3)
Check out their video, it has bad ass cats!
