Diptyque X Philippe Baudelocque 2017 Advent Calendar and Noel Christmas Collection

Diptyque 2017 Advent Calendar.
Now we’ve accepted that Christmas is slowly creeping up, it’s time to get down to some serious business and get our teeth stuck into even more exciting launches! Last week we had a look at the upcoming collection from Jo Malone and this week it’s all about another festive favourite – Diptique!

Last year we were offered a Night At Diptique - a fairly traditional collection, packed full of reds, blues and greens with plenty of snowflakes and Christmas trees in sight. This year, they’re taking a giant step away from the ‘norm’ to give us a completely different experience…

Sticking to its roots, Diptique has collaborated with French street-artist, Philippe Baudelocque, to create the fabulous new collection. Forget about Christmas crackers, baubles and cute gingerbread men – whilst we can still expect our favourite festive scents, this collection takes an original spin on Christmas with a constellations theme, opening our eyes to a whole new world of stargazing, magic and mystery!

Let’s step into the darkness…


Advent Calendar, £300

First up, the show-stealer you’ve all been waiting for! We can expect 25 days of sheer delight, including a mixture of home and body fragrances that will last through the holidays, right through to 2018! The calendar looks so glam and is well-presented in a book-like case, secured with a cute Diptique ribbon!

Whilst the pricing has increased a little since last year, we can expect a high-quality calendar absolutely packed with both old favourites and brand new products. Unfortunately, the exact contents are still under wraps but one thing we know for sure is that it won’t disappoint!


3 Candle Gift Set, £84 (70g) and £144 (190g)




This year we can look forward to three brand new, limited edition candles – all based on mythological creatures; a Unicorn, a Dragon and a Phoenix which really capture the magical theme.

The packaging is completely different to the usual Diptique style and is quite dark (but dark in a good way!) Each of the hand-designed creatures are set against a starry background, taking you to a land far, far away.

Frosted Forest – The Unicorn, £28 (70g) and £48 (190g)

A green forest-like candle bringing a magical, frosty and festive scent of pine needles, hinoki wood, mint and warm notes of resin.

Fiery Orange – The Dragon, £28 (70g) and £48 (190g)

It’s not a Diptyque Christmas without an offering of orange! The orange candle represents the fire-breathing dragon and has a powerful blend of orange rind, citrus fruits and spices to give a sweet but woody fragrance.

Incense Tears – The Phoenix, £28 (70g) and £48 (190g)

This one-of-a-kind blue candle represents the skies and heavens and offers a calm scent of frankincense, cinnamon and myrrh.

*All three candles can be purchased as part of the gift set or individually


Giant Baies Candle, £220


Here’s a (not-so) little something for all you Baies fans! A popular favourite which returns year after year, only this time it’s available in a GIANT size! Yes, a whole 1.5kg worth of candle (the equivalent weight of pack of self-raising flour!) which comes in a mystically crafted ceramic vase with hand-painted stars. Heavenly!

Constellations Carrousel, £40 

Next up is this year’s must-have carrousel. Designed to fit the 70g candles, the carrousel is simply stunning and will look amazing in your living room. Once the heat has been generated, just sit back and watch it dance!

The amazing new winter collection will be available in stores and online from November.

Huda Beauty NEW Faux Filter Foundation, Complexion Perfection & Blending Brush.

Above: Complexion Perfection, Faux Filter, & Blending Brush.
Listen up beauty lovers! Yesterday morning news broke about a NEW foundation from Huda Beauty that could put an end to all Instagram filters! 

Following the successful launch of her Beauty Line, Huda has continued to build quite an empire for herself. Not only is she dubbed as the Kim Kardashian West of the beauty influencer world, she has also been listed on the top 25 most influential people on the internet by 
time.com. NOW, Huda Beauty strikes again and this time, it’s got all of our attention..

After teasing us on social media for months, Huda finally gave her 18 million Instagram followers exactly what they wanted – details of the project she’s been working on for the past two years – the launch of her brand new super-full coverage foundation, Faux Filter!

So, what do we know so far? 

Well, not a great deal, BUT there will be three brand-new complexion products, all rumoured to be launching WORLDWIDE from October. 

Complexion Perfection Primer

To create a healthy canvas and pre-makeup base. Huda has hinted that it can be used in many other ways too which will be revealed very soon!

Price: $35

The Faux Filter Foundation
  • 30 Whopping Shades - from very fair to rich, deep skin tones, beiges, olives and golden shades.
  • Skin perfecting pigments that have been designed to blur blemishes, hide imperfections, and conceal hyper-pigmentation.
  • Full coverage but still looks like skin. 
Price: $40

A Face Blending Brush

Once Huda and team got started they couldn't stop at a foundation, the more they got into the process the more they wanted to do! The face blending brush was designed to work with Faux Filter to give you beautiful streak-free results!

Price: $40

Huda Beauty say:

If there’s something I think I can add to the beauty world, then I have to do it! And with the current foundation offering, I felt something was missing. It wasn’t because there aren’t beautiful foundations on the market already, but there wasn’t one collection that ticked all the boxes for me, so we had to make one that did. 

We’ve spent nearly two years perfecting our foundation range, and the number one thing we wanted to achieve was a shade offering that would be inclusive for EVERYONE! This was the most important factor for me; having always struggled to find a shade that fit me and didn’t mask my skin, I wanted to eliminate this worry and create something that would make everyone feel gorgeous.
