Diptyque Goodies…

Diptyque has to be one of my favourite brands (another post here). I have the Baies candle (one of their best sellers) which I love – to be honest who doesn’t? Well I was going through a bunch of my samples the other day (sounds off point but trust me it relates to Diptyque). Anyway, I found a sample of the body crème that I received when I was in London and picked up their lip balm and a solid fragrance. It was amazing – both smell and feel. Well of course I wanted to look it up online. I was surprised about the price ($90 for a body crème is very high to me!) but started looking at a few of their other products.

Room spray

Since I have the Baies Candle I decided to get the room spray to go with it. It smells just like the candle and I just learnt about 5 minutes ago what a little amount you need. I sprayed 3 sprays in my living and dinning room and after about a minute my husband goes “something smells good”, followed by “I think I just got smacked by a honeysuckle” meaning I sprayed WAY too much. (side note: I’m not even sure it has honeysuckle in it).

I still wanted some type of body lotion so I opted for the Satin Oil for the body and hair. This is a dry oil that has Jasmine, ylang-ylang and saffron scents incorporated into it. It feels so nice on the skin and there is no greasy feeling which is a huge plus but it still leaves the skin feeling soft. It is also great for the hair but you only need the tinest bit if you have fine hair like I do!

I ordered everything online from Neiman Marcus and a few extra goodies were thrown in with the order. Diptyque sent a box with 4 fragrance samples in it along with a deluxe size fragrance sample in it. Along with that, a tote and a few more samples.

Online Window Shopping – Currently Coveting

Currently Coveting
White Dress // Body Oil // White Bag // Suede Booties // Black Strappy Pumps // Earrings // Candle // Pillows // Black Strappy Heels

You know I love a bit of Online Window Shopping….well here is my latest. Back around Christmas I tried on this white dress in a blue and white version and loved it. However, I could not justify the price – now I see they have it in a plain white version and they are both on sale! I discovered this body oil when I was looking up the Diptyque body creme that I had a sample of. The body creme has such an amazing smell that I can’t wait to try the body oil when I see it in store. I love Boots and think these are amazing – I’m not one who wears a lot of silver but I do love the buckles on these boots. How can you not like these strappy pumps or these strappy heals?? They are so edgy – I love them! Definitely something to save up for or try and find a dupe for! I thought these earrings were very simple but still had a “wow” factor. I love Eucalyptus and also want to see how this candle smells when I’m next in a department store in Atlanta – that and the Biaes room spray. I love the Biaes candle and would be interested to see how they compare. Of course there is another bag in there – one that is simple and chic and would go with errything! Lastly, I thought these outdoor pillows were fun. A great colour and pattern! Looking at the picture I realize there is a definite colour theme doing on this time – white, back, and gold/yellow!

First Impressions – Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

Hello! I have been MIA lately and majorly slacking on writing my blog. Sorry about that! However, recently I did get my hands on a new product (hint hint it is a concealer) I have been wanting to try for some time. Here is my first impression:

So I will start off by saying I have read and heard good reviews about the ‘Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer‘ so there are no surprises on what this short post will be about. I decided it was worth a try and picked up the neutral fair colour. This is truly a first impression post because I have only tried this product a few times. So far I’m really enjoying it, it is definitely brightens and does not settle into any fine lines (who wants to see any wrinkles?! – not me!!) I use a beauty blender to apply mine (2 triangles under the eyes) and find that works really well (I also contour with it). Although this is a great product (I love the brightness it brings), I do find that compared to my ‘Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Concealer‘ it doesn’t have quite as much coverage. Still a fantastic product that I am really enjoying so far.

Have any of you tried this concealer? What are your thoughts? 

Lots of love,
