February Favorites 2014

It's been months since I've done a favorites post, and it's about dang time I did a new one! It just so happens that this month, I have some awesome things to share with you. Here are my absolute favorites for the month of February...

Lush Sikkim Girls Body Lotion - Look familiar? I got this in January in my Lush haul! I really battled with the idea of including this in my favorites, as it can't be purchased anymore - but I love it THAT much! (you can buy the perfume, but not the body lotion) I have to be honest, when I first put this on, I couldn't tell if I smelled really amazing and earthy or if I smelled like an old lady. Either way, I rocked this all month. It is so strongly scented of frangipani, tuberose, jasmine and vanilla that it will stay on your skin literally all day. I apply it after I shower and I can still smell it 12+ hours later. It's exotic, sexy and dark... I love love love it.

Yes To Blueberries Eye Firming Treatment - I got this in my Yes To haul, and I am in love. This claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines in just 7 days, and I actually did see an improvement in my undereye area! This mega-hydrating formula works wonders. I apply it in the morning, and it's great under makeup without being too heavy. 

Exotic Woods Soy Candle - This candle is from Target and it smells heavenly. I love woodsy, dark fragrances (obvi) and this smelled amazing. I think my husband and I actually got this for our wedding and when I saw it in my pile of candles I thought "EEK! We better burn this!" ... especially considering we've been married nearly a year and a half. What can I say, I'm a candle hoarder! I hope Target releases this scent again!

Wet n Wild Gel Eyeliner in Black - This is only the second gel eyeliner I've purchased and it was such an upgrade from the other that I own that I have been using it nonstop. It's super black (my requirement for any eyeliner) and soft. It glides on so easily and lasts all day. It smudges a tiny bit, but I don't even mind. 

NYX Eyeshadow in Flamingo - This is one of my favorite eyeshadows that I own. It goes so well with my fair skin tone. It gives my eyelids a pinky gold sheen that is almost unnoticeable until I'm in the right light. It's perfect for a shimmery neutral eye, or even as a one color wash on the lids. Beautiful and cheap - could it get any better?

Chloe Eau de Parfum rollerball - I have long wanted this perfume in my hands, and I finally went to Sephora and snatched up this amazing perfume. Chloe is an iconic feminine scent that smells strongly of rose and amber. It is the epitome of class and I can not get enough. I'm going to have to splurge on a full-size of this perfume once I run out of the rollerball. 

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Refresher (dry shampoo) - Oh my gosh, just break my heart - I just found out this is discontinued! Go figure, as I picked it up at Big Lots a while ago... and we all know why makeup is at Big Lots. I LOVED this. It didn't leave a white cast in my hair, it smelled nice, and it actually did give my hair volume. I so wish this would make a comeback!

What did you love this month? Let me know!

Color Club - Cloud Nine

It's been awhile since I've done a nail post, eh? This is one hell of a comeback.... take a look at this doozy from Color Club! It's not a new polish, by any means, but Cloud Nine is one of the coolest, most dynamic polishes in my collection and I've been loving every second of it being on my nails.

Cloud Nine is a very light pink/purple that is pure holographic goodness. I'm wearing two coats, topped off with a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.

While I love this nail polish so much, I do have one gripe; it chips in no time at all. Unfortunately, that tends to be the case with holographic nail polish. They look amazing on the nails, and within 24 hours you've got sizeable chips in each and every nail. As it is a lighter color, the chipping along the tip isn't as noticeable as it might be with a more bold color. 

I think I may get more longevity out of this polish by using it as a pedicure color in the future. I have to say, even though it chipped within 24 hours, I can't even be mad at a polish this gorgeous.

Winter Lip Care

As I started to write this blog post on Thursday, there was a blizzard brewing outside my door. The image above is the street I live on, covered in snow! 4 days after said blizzard, it still looks pretty similar. I was happily typing up a blog to post on Friday, and right as I started my power went out, and stayed out for 12 hours! But finally, after hours without power, multiple shovelings of my driveway, and white-knuckled driving in this mess, I bring you a new blog post.

As I've made all too clear, winter is very much still a reality in my neck of the woods. If I'm lucky, it might warm up as early as mid-March, but that's hopeful. So for now, I'm still using a regimen of products to keep my lips hydrated and nourished as they're very prone to chapping in the winter. Here's what I use.

Lush Lip Scrub in Mint Julips - A good lip exfoliator is key. I use Lush's Mint Julips, a sugar-based scrub that tastes deliciously like mint! I take a bit of this on my fingers and scrub it all over my lips to remove dead skin. You can lick this stuff off, and wa-lah! Smooth lips! 

EOS Lip Balm - After exfoliating, I go in with a lip balm. This particular flavor is "Fresh Watermelon" from the limited edition EOS 4-pack that was put out this summer. Any flavor will do! Smother this all over the lips for a nice burst of hydration.

Lypsyl Lip Balm - I tried this on a whim, and was majorly surprised by how amazing this lip balm is. It's made of beeswax, coconut oil and organic shea butter, among other ingredients. It lasts a good while on the lips and erases any hint of chapping. I seriously love this stuff!

Rose Salve - This smells faintly like rose, and is mega-hydrating. This has been in my lip care regimen for years, and for good reason. It keeps my lips smooth and soft and I love that I can smear the remaining product left on my fingers on any dry spots I have. 

These products have all been in rotation throughout this winter, and they've been working wonders on my lips. I'd love to know what products you use to keep your lips happy during the dry winter months! Let me know in the comments below.

NYX Baked Blushes | Chiffon & Foreplay

Anyone who's involved in the beauty world has a weakness (or two). My weakness is blush (and lipstick) and when I was perusing the aisles of Ulta recently and stumbled upon the new NYX baked blushes ($6.99 for .23 oz), I could not walk out of the store without at least one. I picked up two of the twelve magnificent shades; I grabbed Chiffon and Foreplay. 

These can be applied either wet, for more pigmentation, or dry. Upon first use, I noticed right away that there is a very rough exterior to the blush. Once you work your way through that tough top layer, you break through to a nice soft blush underneath. Just swirl a brush around on the top for a bit until you break through to the soft powder underneath.

I thought these provided a pigmented wash of color, along with an illuminating dewy glow. Once applied, my cheeks looked radiant and glowing in a way I haven't had a blush do for me before. 

NYX Baked Blush in Chiffon
NYX Blush in Foreplay

On the NYX website, Chiffon is described as an "iridescent highlight" and Foreplay is described as "pink with gold shimmer". I would say Chiffon is definitely more pigmented than "iridescent highlight" makes it sound. I was wearing it in my Justin Timberlake FOTD, for those of you curious to see how it looks on the face. 

Product: 5/5
Pigmentation: 4/5
Texture: 4/5
Packaging:  5/5

These blushes provide a gorgeous wash of color that leaves the cheeks looking dewy and glowing without looking oily or greasy. I think the formulation that allows them to be applied either wet or dry is innovative, and makes for a very versatile blush. I really like these blushes, and how natural they look on my cheeks. I definitely want to pick up a couple more! 

Have you tried the NYX Baked Blushes?

February Ipsy vs. Birchbox!

You know the drill. Ipsy & Birchbox are both subscription beauty services that send you a sampling of beauty products once a month for just $10. Click any of the hyperlinked "Ipsy" or "Birchbox" links in the post to sign up today. Let's get right to it...

  • Juicy Couture Couture La La Malibu - I swear to god, I have received a million and a half Juicy Couture samples (different variations, of course) from Birchbox. I am so freakin' sick of receiving Juicy Couture fragrance samples. All I can say is at least this one didn't come broken
  • Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner - I always like to try a new pore refiner, so I'll happily try this one out. 
  • Ruby Wing Color Changing Nail Polish in Kitten Heels - Oddly enough, there's nailpolish all over the cap of this sample, as if someone opened it up and used it. I think the mood-changing thing is a gimmick, but I'll try this out nonetheless. 
  • Beauty Protector Protect & Oil - I love this brand! Their detangler is one of my favorites, so I'm super excited to try their newest product out as it's exclusive to Birchbox!
  • 32 Oral Care Effervescent Breath Crystals with IsoVoxy - This is the weirdest thing I think I've ever received in a Birchbox. Breath freshening crystals. Odd, but I'm intrigued. 

  • Zoya Nail Polish in Odette - Full-size alert!! I very nearly bought this color for myself not too long ago, so I couldn't be happier to receive this (full-size no less!) in my Ipsy bag! If you've been reading Glazed Over for awhile, you're already aware Zoya is my favorite nail polish brand.
  • Benefit High Beam - I redeemed some of my Ipsy points to get this in my bag this month, and I'm really glad I did. This is such a natural highlight for the cheekbones. Great product, great brand - love!
  • J.Cat Beauty Eyelashes in EL15 - Full-size alert!! I have never tried eyelashes by J.Cat Beauty before. These look really dramatic and fun. Can't wait to try them!
  • POP Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal - This is a gorgeous everyday color. I've enjoyed all I've tried so far from POP Beauty, and I expect I'll enjoy this, too. 
  • Mally Beauty Evercolor Waterproof Eyeliner in Starlight - I don't have much need for a silver eyeliner, but I will more than likely try this out as I've been curious about Mally. Seems very creamy... I so wish it was black or brown!
  • City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh MelonFull-size alert!! Look at the size of this thing! I've already tested this blush (from a brand that's completely new to me!) and it is so finely milled and extremely pigmented. Loving this so far!

It's pretty clear Ipsy is the obvious winner this month. Birchbox was doing so well for the last couple months that I thought they were making a real turn around. Unfortunately, I get so much value in my Ipsy bag that I am THIS close to cashing out my Birchbox points and ending my subscription. 

What do you think - which do you prefer? Ipsy or Birchbox?

FOTD | Justin Timberlake Concert

My friend Paul  + I!
This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of seeing Justin Timberlake in concert. I've been a huge JT fan through his whole career, and when I heard he was going to be in my neck of the woods for the first time in 7 years, I could not miss out. 

One of my best friends (Paul) and I go to many concerts together, and have seen nearly all of our favorite bands, and both of us agree, this Justin Timberlake concert was *the* best concert we have ever seen. What really made the night special was during the second half of the show; The front part of the stage broke off and rolled right in front of our seats! It was stunning! JT sang 4-5 songs right in great view! Amazing!

I thought I'd show you what makeup I was wearing, as I always like to sport something bold in some way when I see a show. For JT, I went bold lips all the way! 

To achieve this look, I used (my favorite!) Covergirl 3-in-1 Outlast Stay Fabulous foundation in Ivory. To conceal any darkness under my eyes and brighten the under-eye area, I used the Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless eye concealer in shade 205. On the cheeks, I used one of the new NYX baked blushes. This one is in the color Chiffon, a bronzey mauve color. (more on these blushes coming later!) 

On my eyes, I primed with my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Nude Pink that I forgot to put in the picture - oops! (see my review on this product here) and then used the starred matte brown color from my Crown Brush Neutral Smokey Eye palette and used that in the crease and outer V of my eye. I then used the starred pink-white color in the middle and inner corner of my eye to brighten things up. I lined my eyes with my favorite Wet n Wild Mega Liner, and lined the waterline with the Rimmel ScandalEyes liner in Nude to make my eyes appear bigger and more awake. For mascara, I used this little mini Benefit They're Real!

I used the Wet n Wild Kohl Brow/Eyeliner pencil in Taupe to fill in my eyebrows, followed by a coat of Maybelline Great Lash in clear to set them.

For the bold pop of color, I lined my lips and filled them in with the NYX retractable lip liner in Fruit Punch before going in with one hell of a red lipstick: L'Oreal's Colour Riche La Lacque lipstick in Lacque-onic. (read more about these lipsticks here) I loved the bold pop against my very fair skin. I always love an excuse to go mega-bold with my lips and this was just the right night for it!

Just for fun, here's a clip from the show!

Valentine's Day Scents

For me, my favorite way to complete a look for Valentine's Day is to top it all off with a great scent. What could possibly be sexier than smelling like a million bucks on Valentine's Day?

Truth be told, I'm a bit of a perfume-aholic. I'll have to share my collection with all of you lovely folks, but we'll save that for another day. For now, here are my picks for the perfect Valentine's Day fragrance.

  • Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna - This is a really deep, musky scent that takes a confident woman to sport. This perfume has base notes of amber, musk, vanilla and patchouli with floral and fruity mid and top notes. You need only a couple spritzes of this perfume and you'll smell sultry and seductive all day long. This is a favorite perfume of mine for the colder months. 
  • Miss Dior Cherie - This is a true power scent. Whenever I wear it, I not only feel strong and beautiful, but I feel like I can take on anything. This perfume has base notes of patchouli, sandalwood, and amber and fruity/citrus top notes. It's much lighter than Reb'l Fleur and perfect for any woman. 
  • Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears - Shifting gears from the first two perfumes entirely, Midnight Fantasy is very fruity and sweet with an undertone of vanilla. If you're not one for deep scents like the first two, and you tend toward sugary sweet scents, you'll enjoy this. All you ultra-feminine ladies out there, this is for you.
  • Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf - This is one of my all time  favorite perfumes, and the one I'll be wearing on Valentine's Day. This is a nice light, yet complex scent that leans toward floral but has darker hints of patchouli and jasmine. This perfume holds major nostalgia for me, as it's the scent I wore on my wedding day. It always brings my back to my wedding day and my honeymoon which is exactly what I want to remember on this Valentine's Day. 

What perfume will you be wearing on Valentine's Day? Let me know in the comments below!

My Current Wish List | February 2014

(Top to Bottom, L to R)

  • MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick - A blue-red lipstick with a frost finish. I've got it in my head that this would look fabulous on us pale girls. I had the chance to pick it up today and I don't know what I waited for! I should have snatched it up before it's gone!

  • Sonia Kashuk Body Butter in Purple Seductia - Have you smelled this in Target yet?! If not, drop everything and run to your nearest Target. This smells AMAZING. Target describes it as "effervescent pomegranate fuses with rose delicacy and earthy patchouli." I will literally buy anything patchouli scented - that's my jam.
  • Lush Shower Gel in Prince Charming - This is a limited edition Valentine's Day shower gel scent and it smells SO good. Again, kicking myself for not grabbing it the first time I sniffed it. Fingers crossed to score some of this post-Valentine's day (even though more shower gel is seriously the last thing I need)
  • Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream - As someone who suffers from dry under-eyes that are prone to dehydration lines, I want to give this a go. I've heard nothing but amazing things about this product. 
  • Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm - This is one pricey lip balm, but apparently it's the eighth wonder of the world. I love all things rose scented, and I've got a feeling this lip balm and I would get along nicely. 
  • Thierry Mugler Alien Perfume - Why the @#$@# doesn't this come in a rollerball?! I've been lusting over this perfume for ages, but just can't part with the $120! My little Sephora samples will have to do the trick for now.
  • Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Glow Powder - This is brand new for Sonia Kashuk's Spring 2014 line and I haven't peeped it in stores quite yet. Could be a possible dupe for an Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder. Want want want!
Well, my birthday IS just a month away... sooooo... who's going to  buy me all of these goodies? ;) 

What's on YOUR wish list?

Rimmel Colour Rush Lip Crayon | Viva Violet

Have I just been oblivious to these "new" lip crayons from Rimmel for the last couple months, or are these truly new to the drugstore? I don't honestly know! I've seen bloggers from the UK mentioning these as of this fall, but I didn't see any American bloggers talking about them, so I'm going to assume they are new!

Anyway, I saw these in Walmart not too long ago and thought I ought to give these a try. I like Rimmel a lot, and their lipsticks are generally pretty nice. So naturally, I put one in my cart. The shade I picked up is number 300, Viva Violet, a gorgeous orchid pink.

These Colour Rush lip crayons are super easy to apply, they go on nice and smooth and they provide really nice color coverage. The scent is nearly identical to a MAC lipstick, sort of vanilla scented. These don't claim to stain your lips, but merely claim to be "long lasting". I got a solid 2-3 hours of wear, even with drinking and eating, but there was definite color transfer on to my coffee mug. After 3 hours, the color wasn't looking so great and it was time to reapply. I found these to be lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear, not drying or cakey in the slightest.

Product: 4/5
Pigmentation: 4/5
Texture: 5/5
Packaging:  5/5

I really like this new lip crayon from Rimmel. I want to see what other colors they have and pick a few more up, because I believe these were under $6 (cheap!). They smell great, apply smoothly and look beautiful on the lips! These are best to wear when you have time to reapply and aren't looking for a super long wearing lipstick. Rimmel Colour Rush Lip Crayons are Glazed Over approved!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser | Review

This little tube has created quite the stir in the beauty world! "Why?" you might ask. Well, there's a couple reasons. For one, it's pretty exciting to see something like this available on the drugstore level; the high-end cosmetic world has plenty of options for "pore-fectors" (e.g. Benefit's Porefessional, Too Faced Primed & Poreless, just to name a couple). And secondly, it's super affordable, ringing in at $5.94 for .67 fl oz.

Baby Skin comes out as a clear gel, and blends translucently on to the skin. The silicone formula applies comfortably and easily. One thing to make very clear: this product does not claim to hide pores entirely, it only claims to "blur" the look of pores, and I think that is a very key statement. I don't feel that this primer completely hides my most visible pore areas (on the sides of my nose, and the skin above the middle of my eyebrows) but it definitely makes them less noticeable.

I know in many of the reviews I read, people complained it made their face very greasy and their makeup slid right off. I've had no such problems. I found this sinks in well and my makeup sticks easily to the product. I don't feel it needs  to be said, but maybe it does - a little goes a long way. You don't need to smother this thickly on the skin, a light coating will do the trick. 

The Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser is a nice option for a pore minimizing primer, especially if you're not willing to shell out $30 for Benefit's Porefessional or any other high-end alternative. It didn't completely erase my pores to the degree that higher-end pore minimizing primers have for me, but this product doesn't claim to. I like it and I'll continue to use it! For under $6, you won't be out too much if you want to give it a shot. Maybelline Baby Skin is Glazed Over approved!

Out with the old, in with the new! | Empties #4

Since my last empties post in December, I've been using things up like mad and I can't stand to see this bag of trash in my room for a second longer! If you're unfamiliar with "empties" posts, I show you what I've used up and give a brief review on each product. By the time I've used something up entirely, I've got a pretty good idea of what I like and don't like and I know if I'd repurchase it. Plus, these are some of my favorite posts from others to read so I enjoy writing them just as much! Let's dive in....

  • epielle Green Tea Cleansing Tissues (repurchased) - I get these at Big Lots, primarily for spot cleaning brushes and wiping swatches off my arms/hands. They do a good job. I've already repurchased another version of the epielle tissues.
  • Pond's Evening Soothe Wet Cleansing Towelettes (would repurchase) - These are in my top 3 favorites for cleansing cloths, and you probably recognize these from past empties posts. These cloths are quilted, smell amazing and do a great job scrubbing my makeup off.
  • Alba Botanica Hawaiian 3-in-1 Clean Towelettes (would not repurchase) - This was the first time I've ever tried anything from Alba Botanica, and sadly these wipes just didn't do it for me. They weren't wet enough for my taste and I just didn't feel like they got rid of all my makeup well enough. 

  • Oscar Blandi Daily Leave-In Detangler (would not repurchase) - I feel like it took me forever to get through this bottle. I wasn't a big fan. It smelled faintly of pickle juice, and was just okay at getting tangles out of my tangle-prone hair. 
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo in Floral & Flirty Blush (would repurchase) - I really like Batiste dry shampoos. I come back to them again and again because there always seems to be a new scent I haven't tried. This had an okay floral scent and did the job of soaking up excess oil in my hair.
  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing   Conditioner (would repurchase) - This was nice. It wasn't anything special, and it definitely isn't my favorite out of the Herbal Essences line, but it was good. 
  • Clear Damage & Color Repair Nourishing Shampoo (would repurchase) - Holy cow, this took me FOREVER to get through (as shampoos always do). This had a creamy consistency which I liked and foamed up really well. I have lots of other shampoos to go through first, but I would repurchase it in the future.

  • Essence I Heart Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara (would repurchase) - I loved this stuff! It gave me awesome length and tons of volume without being clumpy. It's also mega cheap, which you can't beat! I did experience some flaking during the day, but minimal enough that it didn't bug me. I can't wait to get more of this stuff!
  • Covergirl Clump Crusher by Lashblast Mascara (would repurchase) - Another mascara I totally loved. It made my Best of Beauty for 2013, so you know it's good stuff! Lengthening, volumizing and never clumpy, this is where it's at for drugstore mascara.
  • L'Oreal Shocking Extensions Waterproof Telescopic Mascara (would not repurchase) - While I normally love the Telescopic line, I didn't like this waterproof version. It didn't apply as smoothly as the normal formula, unfortunately. I'd stick to the normal formula in the future.
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara (repurchased) - I think the tube I got was dried out because this was not usable. I know people rave about this mascara, and I can't believe the formula I got is the same one others rave about. I tried to use it a couple times, but I couldn't stand it. I got a couple more of these for Christmas so I'll be keen to find out if the formula is different. 

  • Olay Anti-Wrinkle Nutrients Night Renewal Cream (would repurchase) - This night cream was nice. It hydrated my skin and smelled pleasant. I have another night cream I'm using now, but I would probably give this a shot again in the future.
  • Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation (repurchased) - I won't even go on about this. You know I love it. For an in-depth review, click here
  • Aquaphor Healing Ointment (would repurchase) - I used this for dry skin patches and lip balm and I love it. Nothing heals dry skin and chapped lips like Aquaphor. I've got a big tub of this to get through yet, but I will definitely repurchase in the future.
  • Kiss My Face Ultra Moisturizer (would repurchase) - I used this lotion for my hands as it was too thick for use on my face, but it was nice. It has no fragrance so I never had to worry about it competing with my perfume. Nice and simple, I liked it.

  • Grand Central Beauty S.M.A.R.T. Skin Perfecting Polisher (would not repurchase) - I got this little sample in a past Birchbox. I didn't notice this doing anything for my skin at all. I can't say I enjoyed using it.
  • Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel in Peach Poppy (would repurchase) - There's always one of these in my empties! Peach Poppy smelled really nice, and the packaging is super cute. I liked this a lot!
  • Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion (would not repurchase) - I kept this little guy in my purse for use on the go. I didn't think it was anything special and I just wanted to get through it.

  • Boots Brazil Nut Body Wash (would repurchase) - This smelled AMAZING. I don't like to eat brazil nuts, but I sure loved using this scent of body wash! I've got more body wash to use for now, but this will be making a comeback in my stash at some point.
  • The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash (would not repurchase) - I thought this was going to smell much better than it actually did. I don't know if it was just old (purchased it from TJ Maxx) or if that's actually how The Body Shop's Cocoa Butter line smells, but I wasn't a fan.
  • Bath & Body Works Festive Vanilla Fig Body Lotion (would repurchase) - I didn't use this up entirely, but it's been in my stash for far too long and needs to be thrown out. It smelled really nice and hydrated well.

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat (repurchased) - This is my holy grail top coat. I've gone through a few of these, and I'm already working my way through another. It leaves your nails shiny and dries super fast. A+!
  • Chapstick in Green Apple (would repurchase) - I got sent a bunch of these quite a ways back, and I have to say I like it! It smells just like you'd imagine it would and does a good job of hydrating my lips. I've still got a couple more of these left to use up.

  • Weleda Pampering Body Lotion in Wild Rose (would not repurchase) - I got this sample in a past Birchbox (grrr tear-open samples!) and remembered to use this the other day. I didn't really like this smell, and I typically like rose scents. This just didn't do it for me.
  • fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream (would repurchase) - I don't even remember where I got this, but I really liked it. The smell wasn't my favorite, but it moisturized well.
  • Studio Beauty Calming Mask & Detoxifying Mask (would repurchase) - These little face mask packets are from Walgreens' own beauty line. I liked the Detoxifying Mask more than the Calming Mask, although my husband said it smelled like asian beetles. They were cheap and fun to try, and I got 2-3 uses from each packet.

  • Bath & Body Works Candle in Merry Cookie (would repurchase) - This smelled SO good, super sweet like a sugar cookie! I loved the adorable packaging this came in, too.
  • Holiday Time Candle in Winter (would not repurchase) - This candle is from Walmart and is part of their "Holiday Time" Christmas collection. The scent throw on this was weak and it burned rather quickly. I wasn't really expecting much from this, and should have listened to my gut that it wasn't worth picking up.

What did you get through this month?
