Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Lip Pencils ($6.50) are a new variation of the beloved Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in a new style packaging that launched within Australia and Asia (I don’t believe these are available in Europe as yet but feel free to correct me if they are). Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow are the fourth product to join the Maybelline Baby Lips family which now includes the original Baby Lips Lip Balm plus Baby Lips Lipgloss and of course, Baby Skin Primer! I’m still waiting for Baby Skin Blush to pop up somewhere, sometime soon!

Let’s take a look at Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow!

The Bath & Body Works Cork & Vine Candle Conundrum

So I got my Bath & Body Works Fall Haul this week! I ordered a bunch of candles and other goodies online using their 20% off promo code because I couldn’t wait to get to a store and also because I wanted to avoid too aggressive sales peeps!

One of my top picks from the Fall 2015 Collection was the Cork & Vine Candle Collection which was a selection of wine inspired fragrances. Now these sounded positively gorgeous plus add in the fact they had a Black Cherry Merlot Candle and I was in heaven! So I got out my credit card, placed my ordered, and waited patiently for it to arrive.

And man was I disappointed!

Budget Friendly Brushes for Hair and Face from EcoTools

I was compensated by a brand or company but all thoughts and opinions are my own.


I love a beauty budget deal but I don’t like forsaking quality for something cheaper. To many times I purchase a makeup or beauty product for a few dollars, get it home, and I’m disappointed with the performance.

So of course, like any good shopper, I’m always excited when I find a beauty product cheaper but also one that’s of excellent quality! So it goes with Ecotools! I remember the first post I did about Ecotools in 2008 and I also remember being a bit of a snob about makeup brushes at the time but quickly changing my mind when I realized how great their line of brushes was!

So for those who like a deal but don’t want for forsake quality here are some Budget Friendly Brushes for Hair and Face from EcoTools that I’ve been loving on recently.

The Bathing Garden Scare Collection for Halloween 2015

bathing garden halloween 2015

The Bathing Garden Scare Collection for Halloween 2015 was listed earlier last month but the weather has been so warm I decided to wait to post about it. I also tend to like to wait to order since tarts don’t really ship well in 85+ degree weather!

The good news is the Bathing Garden now has not only the Halloween 2015 Collection live but two other collections which are all available for purchase now. Typically they’d update the site for 24 to 48 hours, you’d order, and patiently await that order. Now the items remain on the site a good deal longer so it looks like the Scare Collection will be up and available for a while before being taken down as well as the other two collections!

Keep in mind when ordering that your order can take up to six weeks to arrive so ordering now is a good time to get your order in time for Halloween burning!

Take a look at what’s on offer!

Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post but all opinions are my own.

Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque 1

Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque ($20) is a new tinted lip balm available in three shades that adds a flush of color to lips along with a hydrating rich formula that contains shea butter and vitamin E to keep dry lips happy!

A few days ago I was discussing Vanity Worthy Makeup with beautiful packaging and Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque fits right in! This is such a pretty little luxurious lip balm that will look lovely atop your vanity. The little pot has a certain Victorian feel and the delicious little formula will keep your lips happy and lovely looking!

Take a peek!
