The label ink is wearing off my favorite chapstick tube. I'd better review it before I forget again what its called. Solid waxy type balm in a tube. Stays on my lips longer than a more fluidy liquid chappie. Protects lips from windburn. Smells yummy, tastes nice.
This is a very foolish color for fingers. Reminds me of tinker-bell polish for little girls. It looks very much like a pink polyester nightie, the kind an old lady would wear with marabou-trimmed mules. I am just not girlie enough to wear it on my toes, I'd be embarrassed. My olive skin is just tan enough that it reminds me very much of pink frosted lipstick. Maybe this sells better in Miami.
I must be in the minority. I think this is the tackiest red I've ever worn. I'm gonna go re-write my review for Friar Friar, at least that one was interesting and toe-worthy. This is just wrong on my olive skin. Chanel had a nice shimmer red called Metal Garnet and I've been looking for a replacement. This is like poppy colored, some hot pink-red thing. It went on thin and streaky, and for some reason the lid is impossible to get off if you get even a tiny bit on the threads. Yeah, probably something you'd see on a waitress. Not at all classy.
I'd love to crank the ratings up on this one. Sometimes a whisper is more powerful than a shout. This is an opaque, flat purdy neutral pink. I'm a medium olive complexion and most beige neutrals look like bandaids or basecoat on my fingertips. This stuff is fantastic, very chi chi french. Its pinky but in the way nailbeds and red head's naughty bits are.

This is so weird, I get a strawberry shortcake doll smell. I've been looking for it forever. I'll have to wear it a bit more. For the moment, it is just a curiosity, not something I have the urge to grab and annoint myself with on a regular basis.
If the original was a fragrance that would choke bystanders, this one kicks and bites them. I was angry at myself all day wearing this and couldn't figure out why. Ginger and Dr. Pepper but missing the sweet thickness of either, just sharp and effervescent. Like a sharp stick in the eye.
Mmmmmm. Oiled English tack compared to the Russian boot lick of Cuir de Russie. Polite and charming, not half as sharp as the Cuir. Definately nice for all-over spritzing.
Blech! I'm sniffing at it, trying to enjoy the spices but keep getting choked by the nasty fatty sugary slime. Its as if a snail crawled on my arm and left a trail of stale buñuelos.
I think this is now discontinued. I have this in the home fragrance burner oil. It came with a warmer disc you put on your lightbulb. The thing was way vintage, with King Edward written under the royal seal instead of Queen Lizzie. So, on an insert it says "place the ASBESTOS ring..." Yikes! Anyway, I just thought I'd share. Smells wonderful, and I'm usually a harsh critic of whiteflower smelly things. It has a very fatty rich smell, which I like, better than sneezy things that get stuck in my nose. Or perhaps it is just the aged-ness and method of use that improves it.
God this stuff smells good. It is such a refreshing green smell, much better than mint for a morning shower.

This is a staple. Delicate, slippery and good smelling. Careful on the girl-parts though, just a wee bit too minty.

The smell is fantastic. I get a very close shave on my legs and bikini line when I use this. It feels very sophisticated. I use this at home as well as on travel. Shave oil is something men's barbers have been using forever to soften the tough beard hairs of men. Leaves me soft and sweet without razor-burn.

Its nice enough for one of the many sweeties on the market, like a frosted lemon cake stored in wood cabinetry. Kinda boring though, not enough punch, no silliage. Not a necessary bottle and I could die content without ever siffing it again. Forgettable.
Of course this is nice but for some reason I cannot smell it. Its like someone breathing on me. I feel it but it doesn't have a smell. I can't spend this kind of money on something that is gonna hide from me and drive me nuts trying to get a whiff.

Hey, I love cumin. Kingdom, Femme, love love love cumin. Sadly, this smells like chicken soup: pepper, stale cumin dust, something green and dry like thyme, more pepper. Smells like you were cooking, practicing voodoo, and pruning bushes all while wearing the same sweaty burlap sack. If you just want to smell weird, go for it.
