Bath and Body Works Candle Haul

Now, I'm not one to skip over Thanksgiving and jump right into Christmas. My tree isn't up yet because I want to enjoy Thanksgiving too! But when Bath and Body Works comes out with their holiday candle sale and they're $12.50 instead of $22.50, I jump on it! I really stocked up this year so I figured I would share my haul with you. I'm not sure if the sale is still on or if it's already over, but no worries if it is over because I'm sure it will come again closer to Christmas time. 


From that picture as you can see, there's a lotttt, so let's get started :) 

The first one is Sweater Weather which is one of my favssss which I why I got 2. They're in different packaging because one was from the fall and the second one is for winter. They're still the same scent though ! 

Next is Frosted Cranberry which is another fav hence why I got 2 3-wick and one baby candle. I love fruity, berry scents so this one is perfect. 

Next is Winter which is another goodie. I can't describe this scent. It's like a cool, fresh scent that just reminds me of... well, winter! 

Next up is Tis The Season, which is another one that's hard to describe but reminds me of Christmas. And look how cute the packaging details are on this one! So festive :)

Next we have Spiced Apple Toddy which I actually have the one I bought from last year burning right now and omg does this smell good. It reminds me of Apple pie. Love this one! 

The next one I purchased is Fresh Sparkling Snow. I purchased all 6 scents that I've mentioned so far last year so I knew I'd love these again for this year. This one smells exactly like you'd think it would smell like. The name says it all. 

Next is Vanilla Snowflake which reminds me of snow and baking cookies. Omg sooo good 

This one, Winter Candy Apple, I think has become my new favorite. I tie this one in with Frosted Cranberry and Spiced Apple Toddy. They all remind me of one another. 
Maple Cinnamon Pancakes - Oh. My. God. Everytime I light this I know I'm going to want to cook breakfast. This just smells like heaven ! 
This one is Spiced Gingerbread, I don't really know how so feel about this one. They had one I think it was called Frosted Gingerbread or something which I LOVED but this one I'm not too crazy about.  
I think this is a new one they came out with this year. I could be wrong but I really love this one too. This is another hard one to describe. 

I purchased the lotion in the A Thousand Wishes scent and loved it so I figured I'd try the candle in hopes that I'd love it just as much! 
Similar situation with the Black Cherry Merlot as the A Thousand Wishes scent except I got this in a hand soap scent not knowing they had a candle and this is my favorite hand soap scent so I HAD to get it in a candle! 
I've heard a lot of youtubers rave about this scent so I figured I'd pick it up to see what the hype was all about and I'm so glad I did. This was on sale since they were getting rid of fall scents and bringing in winter ones but I am definitely buying more of these next year because I love it! 
This scent in Hello Beautiful I'm going to save for spring time because that's what it reminds me of. It's like a mix between fresh and floral. 

Did any of you pick up candles from the sale ? Even if you didn't, what are your favorite scents ? 

Thanks for reading :)

Sephora VIB Rouge 20% Off: My Picks!

Hey dolls, it's that time again! Sephora is having their 20% off for their VIB Rouge today, November 4th through November 7th and after that VIB members will have their chance to make their purchases with the discount for a period of time and then Beauty Insiders I believe get 15% off from then until the sale ends. I'm not 100% sure on the rest of the dates but when I get that information I'll update! Below are the coupon codes:

20ROUGE
20VIB

I figured I would share my picks with you since I'm always curious to see what everyone else gets during the sale! I typically go for all the sets because they're always a good value and you get more bang for your buck. Some of these products are unfortunately sold out already so I'll mark the ones that are sold out for you. Feel free to leave in the comments what you got! 

Sephora Favorites Beauty's Most Coveted (Sold Out) $75
Includes: Laura Mercier translucent setting powder, NARS radiant creamy concealer in custard, Kat Von D tattoo liner in trooper, Urban Decay lipstick in 714, CoverFx highlighter in bubble, Tarte rainforest spray, Estee edit, Benefit ka-brow in the shade 3, Becca highlighter in Moonstone, Glamglow supermud, and a Foreo play

I thought this was such a good steal with all the most raved about products. I think there were some products I could've don't without and thought other super hyped products should've been in here but the value is what got me. $75 and the value was like $210. 

T

Becca highlighter in Rose Quartz (Sold Out) $38

Those of you that know me know that I'm a highlighter junkie. I liveeeeee for a good glow (and good packaging too). This had both of my obsessions in one. The packaging is adorable and the pink highlighter is right up my alley. 


 

Huda Beauty Lip Contour Sets: $24

I personally got 2 sets because they have the rosy shades and one with the nude shades. This is the perfect price point for gifting for a friend. This could also be a really great stocking stuffer. You get 3 products basically for the price of one. I also absolutely love this formula of liquid lipsticks! 



Hourglass Surreal Light Palette: $80

Ok I'm not going to lie, the packaging sold me on this one. I mean, marble and gold? How much more sophisticated can Hourglass get ?! I always adore their packaging. But the product inside is also good! You get 2 blushes, 2 bronzes and a highlight which is perfect for on the go. 
 

Stila Naturally Nude Lipstick Set (Sold Out) $20 & Stay All Day Sparkle All Night $39 

I passed up on one of their liquid lipstick sets last year so I told myself I wouldn't do it again, plus these nude shades were calling my name. Again, another perfect stocking stuffer! 
 


 
Sephora Favorites Glow For It $30

Includes: Benefit Watts Up, LancĂ´me, Hourglass in Incandescent, Becca liquid highlighter in Moonstone, and Milk

Again, me being a highlight junkie I couldn't pass this up. 
 


 
 
Marc Jacobs Up All Night Lipstick Set $49 & The Nudeist Show Lip & Liner $28

The Up All Night set is such a good gift for someone because it comes with a cute clutch that the person can either store makeup in or use as an actual clutch. I got this because every year I collect the mini Marc Jacobs lipsticks. Hopefully one day I'll have all the shades in the mini form! I rarely ever go through a full lip product so minis are perfect for me. 

And then the nudeist set comes with 2 nudes and a lip liner which is a great gift for someone who stays away from the bold lips and always gravitates towards the nudes (aka me lol). 


Tarte Neck Treatment: $44

This one isn't limited edition or part of a holiday collection like the other products, but I've had my eye on this for awhile and I know I'm still super young but I want to prevent aging so I'd rather start now than later! Let me know what you think of this product if you've tried it! 


NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Stripped: $26 

I've seen this talked about so much in the last week or two I had to get my hands on it. It looks like such a pretty color. There's so another color I'd like to get my hands on but I wanted to test out the formula first. 


 Let me know what you decided to pick up from the sale!
