Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Pink Sinner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2009

I'm actually not opposed to a real pink (ballet slipper pink) lip every now and then, so the first time I saw this shade I was kind of confused. Why did she dub this shade 'pink'? It is actually closer to a coral shade, in my opinion. Is it just me, or does Poppy have the oddest marketing team? So far, every item I've received from her is not at all what I expect it to be …Read more

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Medieval

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2009

Poppy King said she made Medieval to recreate the effect that applying lemon juice to your lips has (people were forbidden to wear make-up back then, which is why they used this method). In my opinion, this product does not achieve that look at all! It is really a lot more red than I expected, and it definitely looks like you're wearing lipstick.

I do think the color it gives …

Fragrances - Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

To my nose, and on my skin, this smells really sweet, with a very strong note of rubber. Like tent. And there's a vaguely gross 'dead flower' smell somewhere buried in it too.

It smells cute on my sister, but I guess there's just something weird about my skin, because I can't help but be reminded of camping trips whenever I try to wear this. Camping trips in …

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips - Custom Bronzer Blush and Eye Shadow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

I have this in Waikiki Strip, which ranges from a really nice pink to dark brown. It is indeed quite shimmery, which is why I can't use this as blush AND bronzer, but I put on some matte blush, and just lightly use this powder as a bronzer. It gives a very glowing effect, perfect for summer!
Also, like many people already said, this makes for gorgeous eyeshadow! Really, give it a try …

Fragrances - Demeter - Pure Soap

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

I have a small splash bottle of this, so that probably has something to do with the different experience I had with this scent than the people here who said it smelled 'floral and musky' on them... on me it smells like the stuff you use to blow bubbles with! Like a lemony dishwasher-soap type scent. After about fifteen minutes it turns into what it's supposed to smell like …Read more

Fragrances - Gucci - Eau de Parfum II

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

This was the first perfume I repurchased several times. I discovered this scent when I was still in high school, and wore nothing else for a long time. It's such a pretty, girly, light and innocent scent! Perfect for summer days (and nights).
I wear a lot of different fragrances now, and don't really stick to one perfume anymore, but I should really buy myself a new bottle of …

Fragrances - Bulgari - bvlgari femme

Apr/13/2009

I'm kind of surprised by the negative reviews of this scent, actually. I can understand why some people wouldn't like to smell like floral powder all day every day, but I hadn't thought people would be seriously offended by this scent! Guess you learn something new every day...

Anywho, I like this perfume. It lasts a long time, top and middle notes are nice and floral …

Fragrances - Bulgari - Au The Rouge (Red Tea)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

When I first sprayed this on my wrist (a couple of weeks ago), I really did not like this scent at all. It was too sharp and spicy, and so strong I tried washing it off after twenty minutes of smelling it no matter how far away I held my arm from my nose.

I just tried it again, and somehow it smells a lot nicer to me now. I can really make out the rooibos tea, with its distinctive …

Fragrances - Bulgari - Voile de Jasmin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

I like this scent, it's demure and understated. However, I can see why many people would label this perfume 'boring'. The jasmine isn't too easy to pick out, and the top notes of this scent seem to disappear rather quickly, making way for a much soapier version of Bvlgari Pour Femme's drydown. I personally like soapy and clean smells, but again, I understand that many …Read more

Fragrances - Chloé - Chloe (EDP)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

When I first smelled this on myself, I absolutely fell in love with the scent. I bought this the day before Christmas, so it was nice and cold outside, and this scent just enveloped me like a beautiful blanket of prettiness. After a couple of days, though, Chloe kind of started losing its allure to me. It was still a pretty scent, but that almost-magical feeling it gave me when I first spritzed …Read more
