Bath & Body Works
I've been really into candles recently, I usually burn cotton or clean smelling candles, but decided I'd pick up a few Fall ones. First, I picked up the mini ones, I fell in love with S'mores and wanted a full size. (I ended up returning Autumn for another S'mores, but forgot to take another picture.) There's a current Bath & Body Works coupon (spend $10 get a mini candle free.) They were also running a promotion of the 3 wick candles, 2 for $20. (One is originally $19.50) so, good deal!
S'mores is definitely my favorite out of all of these, which is so weird since I hate food scents. Marshmellow Roast is good, too. It's similar to s'mores but has the bonfire scent in the candle. My least favorite was Leaves, it smells like cinnamon cider to me.
I also picked up Vampire Blood from the halloween collection, I purchased it last year and am almost out. It's one of my favorites. It says plum, but smells more berry-ish... like a Bonnebell chapstick from when I was not even a preteen yet.
I highly dislike Ulta, I received their "21 Days of Beauty" newsletter multiple times but just threw it away. I was browsing twitter and someone mentioned Butter London was bogoFREE at Ulta only on that certain day for the promotion. I've always wanted to try out these polishes but I refuse to pay more than $10 for a nail polish. (These are $14 each.) I litterally ran to Ulta after class. I really wanted All Hail the Queen (of course out stock, as always, Ulta.) I got my second choice - Come to Bed Red, and picked up Chimney Sweep with the intention of exchanging it once stock was back in. I ended up keeping and using both. I really like them - formula is perfect, staying power is normal. I was beyond shocked when they allowed me to use the store coupon, too. (It was a new sales associate - prestige brand and I was already receiving an item for free is a definite no, but I thought I'd try anyway.) So basically, these polishes were only $5.25 each, which makes me love them even more.
First impressions are I do like the mascara - I was kind of expecting one of those gimmicky products, but it actually claims what it's supposed to do. I will have to say I'm a little disappointed with the size, I was expecting more product, it's even smaller than the deluxe sample size of mascara.
As for the gift, I was only interested in the toner & moisturizer, the remaining products I'll probably give away or swap. My counter was already out of face powder, but the still provided me with a tiny brush...
Work is requiring us to dress up more now. My wardrobe mostly consists of skinny jeans and oversized shirts. I purchased these three items from A'Gaci along with a few other basics. and dress shirts from Express.
I purchased a few other odds and ends but I'll show them in my September Favorites.
