Surprise Surprise! A winner! Makes me smell like I just stumbled out of a Honeysuckle bush.
This is a very in-your-face fragrance. It is pleasant and I don't know how best to describe this other than cheery. Although, if it were up to me, I would just buy some oil from a Hawaiian sight. Same smell, better price.
Ok, I will give you some insight into Chineseopera's past. Once a long time ago I had a beating heart and the liquid in my veins was warm with temperature. With these things going on, it was natural that a young girl such as myself take a suitor time and again. For five years, the same guy and myself danced around the topic of love. I tell you, it was purely innocent ( well, up until the last soul crushing months of it) He would come to my house every day after school and take a nap together until I had to go to my evening job. It was the most innocent and pure time of my life, I would give ANYTHING to have it back. With that being said, I decided to settle on trying to find the scent that surrounded us. Considering that this took place in a basement-I have been on the search for a basement smell- mold, books, etc. A generous MUAer mailed a vial to me, I waited with baited breath. Maybe I could win him back, who knows? He did clutch something of mine two months ago, and exclaimed "Basement smell!" Anyways, to make a long tragedy short, you can't bottle time. This scent is an attic/basement smell but it's not yours or mine, it's a generic non familiar uninviting sour basement. the quest continues...
Powders -Physicians Formula - Skinsitive Ultra Gentle Face Powder

Whenever I purchase Physician's Formula stuff, I feel like I am taking part in a scientific study. The stuff is very unorthodox and sporadic. With that being said, I am too fear full to depend on a product, lest it be discontinued! I was one dependant on their previous powder and it happend. Later, I did some research and found out it was some issue with the FDA, eek! Anyways this stuff is nice, but I would prefer to be poisoning my skin, because it did a better job.

I really do not understand why this isn't more popular. Please try it! I don't want it discontinued!
Subtle and unoffensive, very unlike her music.
It hurts so good!

Even though this product is for mature skin, it was perfect for me! I cannot over emphasize how great this is! It's thick yet doesn t sit on your face and the colour is realistic! Go for it!
Although, it did smell like Ralph Lauren's Romance (please check my previous reviews if you are unfamiliar with my stance on that scent)I enjoyed this lotion as a cheap alternative. Pretty good.
This product pi**** me off. I mean, I hear all this talk on the board about how great these are, and I got really excited. I went to the store, and it was all covered in wood and scary. God, I hate country motif. I bought this and ran out of there. I lit it, and waited and waited and waited. I am still waiting. This is so light! Makes me just want to yell at my family members just to get my annoyance out. Geez.
Styling Products -Aveda - Purefume Brilliant Humectant Pomade

I have no idea how this product works, but it smells gooood! Whenever I have a date ( heh, yeah right!) Well, whenever I fantasize about going on a date- this stuff would be one of the last things I reach for before I meet him. With my past boyfriends this has always made them weak in the knees, and I still use it today to woo people. It's always the same reaction. I see people sniffing around me and then getting a complicated look on their face and exclaming,' What smells so good?!" I always play it off and act really cool about it. Mind you the darn pomade costs about the same as illegal drugs ( like $18 an ounce!) I even had this one guy who pledged his alliance to the Nation of Islam for years( yes, Malcolm X) change his mind, and pledge his alliance with me. The smell of this was the first thing he commented on when we met. I am sure it was this was the stuff that opened up his mind. Either that or my charming personality, heh! Honey, the stuff will win him over. The secret is between you and me.
Cleansers -Totally Juicy - Pineapple Creamy Cleanser

Smells just like Hawai'i, and that's good considering it's January in Chicago. I am not too concerned how it works, because it smells so good. I guess all and all it does me well.
granules of broken nutshells on my face....my favorite!
I received this sample in a swap. I opened it and I was taken back to my childhood. Yes, yes- I was a child sprawled out on my neighbors grass. It was during the summer months. All the kids from the neighborhood were daring me to eat weird things. Assorted plants and grasses. And this perfum managed to capture my bizarre childhood dares. I never really wanted to be taken back to that place, because-well- because it's just plain weird . Just like this perfume.
Smells very boring to me. I want to go on a limb and say construction paper, but even that is too exciting. So, I dunno-you smell it and page me with you comparisons.
