Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - bathed and infused capri olivo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2007

Starting off aggressively clean (yuzu), Capri Olivo evolves into a soft, unique scent. After 30 minutes to an hour, the aggressive grapefruity opening evolves into a softly floral, slightly green scent, perfectly capturing something out of a garden overlooking the sea. It's not hyper feminine, nor is it foody or strictly floral. If you are looking for something unusual, adult, and clean …Read more

Shampoo - Alba Botanica - Plumeria Replenishing Hair Wash

1.0

Jul/15/2007

My hair is dry, porous, and otherwise not nice without product smeared all over it.

This shampoo smells amazing. It dries out my mop, though. It gets my hair super clean, and that's not good.

If your hair isn't porous and dry, I think this is a harmless, delicious shampoo.

Polishes - SinfulColors - Sinful Professionals - Black on Black

Jul/07/2007

I am very pleased, as most polishes seem to chip off in 3 seconds on me, such as Rimmel 60 second.

This color is straight up black. There's no undertones of purple, blue, or red in this one.

After a week of intense wear, it's now chipping at tips of nails.

It requires 2 coats, but not more unless you want to.

It doesn't bubble or …

Fragrances - benefit Cosmetics - Maybe Baby

2.0

Maybe Baby has the vague fruity floralness of a bathroom spray including peach and flowers...it lingers like a bad dream of the headache inducing variety. It is cheap, simple, and obnoxious.

It has elements in it that I think would smell great on the right person, but on me it was curses.

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Lipstain-Blood Orange

1.0

This just...sucks. The color's nice, like you've been sucking on a lolly, but I can't understand WHY this product is any better than regular lipstick/gloss. Granted, I enjoy the color, but it takes decades to dry and honestly it's not all that great because it comes off easily or will leave a clown ring outline on your lips. Save your dough!

Fragrances - Antonia's Flowers - Sogni Del Mare

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/26/2007

I tried this in a sample, I got all of the Antonia's Flowers fragrances for 5 USD, and this was my absolute favorite. It is a "watery, fruity, floral with notes of Italian bergamot, cassis buds, wild rhubarb, orange and lotus."

It is a watery fragrance, but not with a sharp sting...most watery scents give me a nail in the head. This was fresh, clean, crisp, not …

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Salon Perfect - Pat On The Black

Jun/26/2007

I am verrrrry happy with the color. It's a eggplant black, and since most black polishes look terrrrrible on me, I must say this is a nice surprise. It's an amazing color. No stupid glitter or color flash changes (i hate the mermaid tail colors with what looks to me like an oil slick rainbow effect).

However.

This color is thin and watery. It is prone to air …

Fragrances - Antonia's Flowers - Floret

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/26/2007

I got the samples from Antonia's Flowers, including Floret in EDT and EDP. I hate them both. They smell like the peach spray people use in the bathroom, or Naturistics Tropics. I am not sure because I haven't smelled Tropics in 14 years, but I remember liking the smell, but something was off. Same with Floret. It's nothing like Petite Cherie. Nothing at all.

On the …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Bathed and Infused Creed Spring Flower

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2007

This Dupe smells EXACTLY like my bottle of Creed Spring Flower. I am absolutely blown away. It's fresh, crisp, tart, fruity. If you love CSF but don't want to fork out the dough, try this one. I have the roll-on, perfume and lotion and it's absolutely perfect.

I can't wear this one everyday though, it's pretty strong!

Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Mood in Succulent

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/08/2006

This doesn't really smell that great, but I am so addicted to it, there's nothing to be done for it.

I think I have a love/hate relationship with blackberry, I can't live with it, I hate it, but I crave it. What to do?

This has a slight medicinal smell. I am guessing it's the madagascar vanilla, which smells faintly "tabac" to me! It …
