YOSH U4EAHH! (euphoria) is the self-described “carefree” perfume in the collection. I knew I’d struggle with this one. It’s “carefree” and the notes are fruity. I tend to feel uncomfortable wearing stuff like this. I’m just not carefree enough. I’m not cute enough.
U4EAHH! is fruity with pears and melons. It starts to smell like cucumbers and watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Some of the “juiciness” remains and blooms into a dewy, cool floral with an ozonic musk. The heart reminds me of freshly sliced sour Granny Smith apples… Continue reading | 10 Comments
I really don’t get why the Shelley Kyle line isn’t more popular than it is. The line does sheer and “pretty” so well. Those that like Annick Goutal, Tocca or Jo Malone London perfumes, should really try this line.

It’s September. My summer no-buy is over. But, I have to confess that I did slip up in August. Hey, I’m human. I bought a NARS concealer, but I… Continue reading | 11 Comments
The Lipstick League – week of 8.25.14
Question of the Week: False Lashes: Love ‘em or leave ‘em?
