They're really nice, too.  I'd get another set, but it looks like they're sold out.  Smiley Sad

Mwahahah, my job here is done!  :Twirls mustache wickedly!:


The Flowerbomb came in the Addictive perfume promo bag.  I'll go look up the code, though I don't know if the samples change from bag to bag.


ETA: The code is IMPRESS, and it gives you an option between the Chic bag (the one on top) and the Addictive bag.

Re: August Hauls

that's some serious mustache twirling skill you've exhibited there. color me impressed!


i'll have to try to remember that code for when my sephora probation ends Smiley Happy

ooh i've been eyeballing that set, along with the hand soap/lotion sets that come with the little trays! they're so pretty Smiley Happy 


dang this probation! haha. hopefully it doesn't last too long Smiley Wink

Hows the Illume stuff smell? I'm thinking of getting it but I was curious about the smell.

Re: August Hauls

I just got the set too and i'm in love with it.  The shower gel and body butter are really nice . I haven't burned the candle yet, but it is pretty! I'd define the scent as an earthier floral. 

Re: August Hauls

Oooh Smiley Happy must get it in September! Hopefully its still in stock!

Re: August Hauls

I'm curious too, that candle holder is really pretty. Is it bad I'm tempted to but the set just for that? 


Has anyone smelled the coconut mango one either? It sounds really yummy. 

Re: August Hauls

I totally wanted to buy this just for the candle holder too... but I resisted!

Re: August Hauls

OK, I sniffed both this set, burned the candle for a couple of minutes, and tried the Coconut Mango body butter. A few thoughts:


  • Coconut Mango is going to be a love it or hate it scent.  It's shockingly complex. When I sniffed it in the tube, all I got was coconut.  When it hit my skin, all I got was mango.  Once it sank in, it's a mix of the two. Three distinct scents. And quite strong.
  • Mediterranean is much lighter and cleaner. I'm a huge fan of it.
  • The candle had a nice scent, and lingered well.
  • It's stinking cute.  I foresee cleaning the glass jar out for reuse. (I've been doing that lately a lot. Diptyque works far easier than most though)

Re: August Hauls

Thanks! I'll definitely have to consider picking them up! 

Re: August Hauls

I nabbed the Coconut Mango set but haven't opened it.


Confession: I wanted the candle in this set from today, LOL.

Re: August Hauls

I had the candles on my love list, I didn't anticipate them selling out so fast! And I'm technically on a no buy haha so I was trying to wait till September. If need be I'll just get it tomorrow.


P.S. nice to see you around Smiley Happy

Re: August Hauls


I finally got my boxes unpacked from the extra point event. I took a few pictures of the makeup portion. I'm leaving out the skincare, hair stuff, and the freebies, since they pale a bit in comparison.

First pic is all of the makeup together. Second pic highlights powders and lipglosses. Third pic is just a close up of the lipsticks.
