I have the colors Toffee #4 and Cacao #5. Toffee is a muted rose brown that is MLBB; Cacao a soft reddish brown. Both are warm colors which suit my tanned olive skin. Usually nude lipsticks look blue-pink or gray on me. These are sheer and shiny but not smeary which is good with me because I don't like to wear lip liner. Although I don't notice a volumizing effect, I like the colors and …Read more
Fragrances - Gucci - Envy ME
Funny that this is called Envy Me because it's such a lovely, light-hearted perfume. I like that it's fruity without the usual sickening notes of melon or peach. This tickles the nose with bright pomegranate, blossoms into a shy pink rose and mellows to a soft musk. I love the rose wine color and the pretty bottle. It fades faster than my other perfumes but I don't really mind.
Kenzo Flower is a dense mix of powder and violets, maybe some vanilla/wood in the dry down. Unlike other scents that fade after a while, this just gets stronger and headier.

This scent is an olfactory onslaught! I can't make out the notes, it's such a big smack-in-the-face of lillies, hairspray, and something harsh, maybe insect repellant. The bottle is a beautiful glass cylinder with a pretty jewel in the cap, hence two lippies. I'm just glad I got this as a gift
I bought this because it's supposed to be a Clinique Suprise lookalike. It's close but a bit warmer because of the red/bronze shimmer. On its own it doesn't really stand out. But it adds so much depth to other lip colors in my stash; depending on which lip liner or gloss I pair it with, O can be red, plum, nude. An unusual and beautiful color, in a smooth formulation.
Snog is a very flattering pink-berry gloss with enough brown in it to add a fleshy tone and very fine silver shimmer. For reference, I have olive skin with pigmented lips so most glosses go on clear. But this makes my lips look luscious and, well, snoggable :-)
I use this under dark lipsticks to add softness and depth. It can look weird and pasty if I swipe on more than a couple of times and it's thicker than the other Labello balms because of the high mica crystal content. Faint floral scent that fades in a few minutes.
