It was my birthday this past Sunday, and there’s nothing better than getting a little gift from your friendly neighborhood beauty mecca. Upon receiving the code I promptly made an order with a few necessary items, I received a few additional items along the way.
What did I order for myself? Why a candle and some lip balm. Truly autumn time must haves; what with colder weather, more time spent indoors and the return of darker lipsticks. I went for Diptyque’s Eucalyptus candle, it’s a change from my usual Feu de Bois, but I’ve been obsessed with the smell of eucalyptus ever since my wedding.
Eve Lom’s Lip Mix was a bit of a “Eh, I’ll add it to the cart” purchase. This balm has some amazing reviews, and while I love love love the Dior Creme de Rose Plumping Lip balm it’s got a hefty price tag. This lip balm has a milky, clear texture that’s slippy but sticks around with out being sticky. The original lip mix, sans tint, has a minty tingle and is super moisturizing on the lips.The entire purchase came beautifully gift wrapped, including the birthday gift with purchase! In the little kit was a sample size DCL booster, a deluxe sample sized Nuxe Oil and best of all a travel sized Leonor Greyl shampoo. these are all decently sized, so you can enjoy the products at home or while traveling. Best of all it’s completely free so there’s less guilt about that birthday splurge.
