Lovely peach-nude shade. I have ivory skin with pink undertones, and this is my go-to nude for when I'm wearing a smoky eye. The matte finish gives good lasting power but can be drying. Layer it with lip balm.

In addition to being a well known dupe for MAC 'Velvet Teddy' ($17), it is the EXACT SAME SHADE as Too Faced 'In the Buff' ($22). They differ in …

If any fragrance could be called 'sharp', it's this one. I tried Bandit because it is a legend, because perfume lovers rave about it, and because I enjoy strange unisex fragrances. I just don't like this one. I might even hate it. Blecht.

This perfume is another one which I inflected upon myself after reading rave reviews and learning about its history. Wearing it …

2.5 lipsticks, rounded down to 2 because I'll never wear it.

Against my better judgement, I blind bought habanita. How could I resist a critically acclaimed, remarkably cheap, historic perfume packaged in a lovely bottle? Unfortunately, this perfume is all bitter powder and soap on my skin, not the least bit seductive.

I guess I'm a child of the modern era- I …

My fragrance collection tends towards kinky unisex perfumes and I avoid powdery fragrances, but somehow 'Colette' by Tocca is the exception displayed on my vanity. I can't quite explain it-- this fragrance is so soothing. I am most likely to spray it on when I'm alone at night, reading in bed. It isn't sexy, but it's comfortable.

5 lipsticks, because it is …

I love this perfume. I also love leather notes, the unusual, and unisex fragrances. I only got the famous rubber/lapsang souchong smell the first time I applied. Since then I've noticed more jasmine, smoke, and sandalwood over an addictive sweet and musky base. In EdT it is unobtrusive enough that I feel comfortable giving myself a couple sprays before work.

There are rumors …

On my skin this smells of excessively sweet apricots and powder. It makes me crinkle my nose. I dislike it for the same reason I dislike Chanel No.5: it smells terribly old fashioned. Must be those mysterious 'aldehydes'. That said, it smells expensive and is an interesting creation. It just isn't for me.

I want to smell like a powerful woman, not baby powder and fruit! …
