Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes

Ready to make a wish ? It is almost the Holiday season after all . How about a A Thousand Wishes ? That's the name of the lovely new seasonal scent from Bath and Body Works coming next month.

A Thousand Wishes scent really does seem to have a bit of effervescence , with quince and pear along with a dash of  champagne .  Peony and freesia add a touch of floral and creamy almond, musk and amber ground the sweetness .

It's a nice cool weather scent  and I love the sparkling label with the burgundy bow. It's festive as can be and will make  great gift sets .

A Thousand Wishes comes in the full line of Bath and Body Works products including  a brand new item- Crystal Confetti Hair & Body Spray . The scent will launch on Nov. 3 but is available online now and is LE.

Bath and Body Works Shower Gel is $ 12.50

Perfekt Lip Perfekt Crayon

Ready for a new lip crayon ? Meet Lip Perfekt by Perfekt Beauty.

This new crayon, exclusive to Ulta , is a single color that works with your lip chemistry to create a personal shade.  On me it's a nude rose pink, pretty close to what it looks like in the crayon  with just a little more beige in it. 

Lip Perfekt is very moisturizing with hyaluronic microspheres and jojoba oil and  has a shine on the lips with  light/medium coverage.   There is  peppermint flavor and scent, both pretty light.  

I like this a lot. It's very balm like  and the color is one step up from a "your lips but better" type look.  Great for a more natural lip look or touch ups.

Lip Perfekt is available now at Ulta for $ 22.
