EauMG’s April 2018 Empties

APril 2018 empties

I was not very good in April. I bought things I shouldn’t have. I ended up buying a Lancôme set from Nordstrom because it was a good deal. I like their mascaras and eye makeup remover. MAC had a sale on some limited edition collections. This sale contained 2 things that I have wanted but thought I missed out on. It was nice to see it back and half price! I also made an Ulta order mainly to get skincare for my husband since apparently he is incapable… Continue reading | 12 Comments

Rose Week 2018 – Rose Candles

Oh, so you thought Rose Week was over, huh? Here’s a bonus round for Rose Week 2018! I’ve put together a guide of rose scented candles.

I picked up a couple Innisfree items (repurchases) and some… Continue reading | 6 Comments

EauPEN Thread – Holiday Gifts

Chanel No. 5 1971
Did you receive any smelly things/perfume as gifts over the holidays? If so, what? If not, is there anything you want to treat yourself to?
I didn’t really get any perfume but I did get two perfume-y items from my Vintage Beauty Gift Guide. Apparently David read that post and gave me the Chanel No. 5 Fragments d’Or and Malle Iris Hand Cream. The bottle of this is so much bigger than I expected (8.4 oz). It’s actually a very… Continue reading | 16 Comments

L’Artisan Amber Ball Home Fragrance Review

L'Artisan Amber Ball

I am aware that by writing a review of a product with “balls” in the title that I will be receiving mega-spam from here to eternity. Thank you, spam filters! I should admit that I giggle like a big dorkus every time I say “amber balls” in my mind while typing. I’m trying to be a professional but let’s be real, it’s sort of funny. Feel free to make jokes about my smelly balls. See? One can’t resist! OK, wipe the grins off your faces and continue reading about L’Artisan’s Amber… Continue reading | 4 Comments
