The colour is a fairly sheer pink, good for a natural look but a bit lacking if you're after a more vibrant colour. This is a nice product to wear on a very light makeup day. The texture is soft and smooth and is reasonably moisturizing, not thick and goopy like Revlon's lip butter. I definitely prefer this formula to Revlon's, and would like to try a deeper colour.

A little powdery, a little almondy, a little animalic, and very snuggly-wuggly. If you like warm, cozy musks, this one's a winner.
Sweet floral, very similar to BBW Secret Wonderland. Nice, but no lasting power at all.
I really wanted to love this one, based on all the reviews that described it as a soft, powdery, and old-fashioned floral. Sadly, although I can detect softness and creaminess deep down, a shrill, headache-inducing note (the pink pepper) gets in the way. So many modern mainstream fragrances give me headaches that I've largely stopped trying them, so I was disappointed by yet another dud.
Kick the blackcurrant out of this fragrance and it would be lovely. Instead, it makes this mossy floral smell like children's aspirin. It's a shame, because I love the idea of a mossy peony, and the bottle is beautiful.

I used this to fix the little paint injuries on my Ford Fiesta. Much cheaper than touch-up paint.
Pale, washed-out, vaguely musky floral with a nasty, shrill citrus top note.
Cadbury in a bottle. What more needs to be said?
Yes, DESF is a pleasant, non-overpowering berry floral, ideal for warmer weather. However, I admit that I bought this just because the bottle has those goshdarned cute squishy flowers!
The perfect metallic blue!

Decent, nice smelling and tasting lip balm. Not super moisturizing, but not greasy and heavy either. It's a little bulky for my purse, so I keep it in my night table drawer. It works well for when I wake up in the middle of the night with uncomfortable dry lips (which happens fairly often).
Another fabulous fragrance from Wiggle Perfumes on Etsy. Since the weather has been so nice and warm and springy lately, 101 seemed like the right scent to wear today. It's a very fresh and surprisingly long-lasting zesty grapefruit and mint fragrance with a light floral drydown.

I'm really not familiar with the works of H.P. Lovecraft and I have no clue how the name is pronounced. I do know that this is a pleasant sea-floral not unlike BBW's Sea Island Cotton.

Smells like lemonade, camphor, and beachballs.
