Bath & Body Works - Fall Haul 2014

Leaves 3-Wick Candle, Pumpkin Cafe Candle Holders, Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow 3-Wick Candle & Marshmallow Fireside 3-Wick Candle

Fall is on it's way and Bath & Body Works stores have all their fall products out ready for you to purchase now. You will probably be able to find the limited edition Pumpkin Cafe Candle Holders if you shop in the next few days.  If you want them, you need to be quick because each store only has a few. They are so adorable and are a must have! They aren't available online and they may just want to sell them in stores since they are hard to ship due to them being so fragile. The large one costs $18.50 and the little one $10.50. I used a $10 off $30 survey coupon, so the large one cost me $12.72 and the little one only $7.22. Bargain! The adorable Ceramic Owl Candle Luminary that I bought last year is back this year for sale. He is also a hard to find item, so if you want him, do not hesitate or you will be sorry. I took back three candles today in the scents Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding, Wasabi Apple & Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun. The banana one had so little scent and didn't smell good to me. Wasabi Apple was burning so quickly and just smelled like a sour apple. Two burnings and it was half gone! I'm hoping that this isn't a sign of things to come and that it was just a issue with that scent. Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun was the worst, it only had a burning scent, yuck! I'm disappointed in the new scents this year and I had such high hopes for them! So I went with two of my favorites as exchanges. Leaves & Marshmallow Fireside are such wonderful Fall candles. I highly recommend them! I'm going to give Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow a try even though I've heard some not so flattering reviews. The 3-wick candles are on sale right now, two for $22.00, so now is the time to stock up! Remember to use a coupon and if shopping online use Mr. Rebates for cash back.  Have you tried any of the new Fall scents?  Which ones did you like and dislike? Comment below!

QVC's bareMinerals TSV - Fall 2014

bareSkin Beauty - Radiant 7-Piece Collection for Face, Eyes & Lips

Above is the TSV in the color "Bare Shell" for September 15th on QVC. It comes in twelve shades. Use the shade chart to find the right color for you. I preordered it last week for $54.98 in three payments of $21.91 after tax and shipping. That works out to only $7.85 per item before tax and shipping which is an awesome price for anything from bareMinerals! That doesn't include the 5% back from Mr. Rebates. The foundation and it's brush alone cost $57 retail.

I was very anxious to try out their new liquid foundation since the reviews are quite mixed. I'm happy to report that I really like it a lot and it will be my current foundation. I use five drops, using one drop at a time per quadrant of my face. The last drop is used for any parts that need just a bit more. It immediately covers my redness which other foundations have failed to do without much more product and application time. The brush is very soft and works well with this thin foundation. I didn't find the product sunk into the brush nor was it absorbed like others have reviewed. The foundation sat on top of the brush and I dabbed it on at first then brushed it in. Application is very quick due to it being very thin and needs less brush strokes than thicker foundations. I used the original bareMinerals power foundation for about ten years but gave it up about two years ago when I thought it was making my wrinkles more pronounced. I started using Tarte foundation instead and it was ok for awhile, but it magnifies any dry spots. I find this foundation is easier & faster to apply a thin coat for a more natural look than the powder version. It feels like a moisturizer on rather than a foundation which I love. I also didn't find it oily like others have, but my skin does tend to be dry especially in the winter if I'm not religious with my moisturizers. I found this foundation doesn't require a primer which is great for when you are in a rush and need to skip some steps to get out the door quicker.

I never tried the compact version of Mineral Veil before and found it to work well especially for on the go. It has a nice mirror for on the go and features a magnetic closure. It comes with a sponge applicator, but I've never been a fan of those since they seem to take off more product than it applies.  The blush brush works well with the mineral veil and blush. The Vintage Carnation blush and the Natural Beauty Marvelous Moxie lip gloss are in lovely burgundy fall colors. The Marvelous Moxie is quite opaque for a lip gloss and has pretty good staying power. The eye shadow goes on well with the other side of the blush brush, but does require primer! A step you will not want to skip. It's a shimmer of a cinnamon brown color called Luminous Umber.

I'm very happy with my purchase and recommend you give this set a try. If you order it, don't forget to use Mr. Rebates for cash back!  It's currently 5% back. Do you plan on purchasing this set or have you already?  Stay tuned for a list of the QVC October TSV preorder numbers tomorrow.
