Musings of the Day: What Did You Haul During the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale?

bath and body works sale1

It’s possible abnormal to walk out of Bath & Body Works hauling out a bag of twenty or so candles but that’s exactly what happened to me during the Semi-Annual Sale.

I really, really wanted to indulge during the typical two for twenty deal when Bath & Body originally launched some of their Spring/Summer 2012 candles but couldn’t justify a purchase since I had SO many left over from Christmas.

But since they are on sale plus extra coupons and such floating around the Internet I ended up hauling.

Where I’m storing all of this is anyone’s guess!

Outside of the candles I also picked up some home fragrance oils and some of the silver plated candle holders.

What about you?

What sort of major haul did you do at Bath & Body Works?

Share your haul with me!

Curious what everyone got.

Did anyone feel this year’s sale was kinda small-ish compared the year’s past?

I remember hauling X-mas stuff, older products, etc…during the sale and tons of accessories and such. This year it seemed like the stuff on sale was mostly products they just recently launched this Spring/Summer.

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection Review & Swatches

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection 22

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection is making its debut today on my face. It’s super hot today, first real hot day we got in New York, so a bronze-y look seemed the order of business when I woke up this morning.

I feel Lorac is terribly overlooked sometimes because they seriously make some of the best eye shadows ever and have such great, inexpensive sets during seasonal releases. Their Summer 2012 Collection is sizzling and their new Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Set is a mere $39 taking care of lips, eyes, face, and accessorizes you with a nifty bag too.

Take a look!

Plus, it’s available in five skin tone shades carefully formulated by Bobbi herself. Consider it your skin’s new best friend.

Features and benefits: Water-attracting molecules boost hydration. Light-reflecting pearls brighten dull skin. Botanical extracts and caffeine reduce discoloration and redness. Pore-reducing peptides minimize fine lines. Broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and antioxidants fend off future damage.

If you missed my review of it you can click here to see what the good word is.

Looks like the main differences between the Asian and US release is shade selection but other than that the formulas seem similiar.

Looking forward to checking out the US version anyway, count me curious if the formula is spot on for the Asian release.

Are you curious about trying it?

Not so much?

Do share!

MAC Ruffian Manicure Review

MAC Ruffian Manicure1

MAC Ruffian Manicure mania is sweeping the beauty scene today. I’m not a nail girl so this is kinda my half-arsed review of the Ruffian Manicure which features three different designs of press on nails.

I got my hands on the Demilune set which is a matte black finish with a gold half moon design. They are pretty wicked in theory but I’m unsure how many people are interested in a set of press on nails. Perhaps nail polishes or even nail strips would have more appeal? But like I mentioned, I’m not nail girl so I’m not an expert. What do you think?

Let’s take a look!
