I don't usually post about stuff I hauled because I don't really get the point except I'm totally going to do it today because I feel like shoving this company in your faces.
ONE HAND WASHES THE OTHER
And the goods
And this is all the awesome that was in the little box
The vampire rubber duckie rocks my socks.
I ordered all the newest halloween scents minus Santa Muerte because it was sold out at the time but I ordered in in a more recent order.
I also ordered 4 bottles of oils (Calaveras, Solanum, This is Halloween, Burning Times), all of which I already had/ordered in solid form because
1. I love little bottles
2. Calaveras is one of the greatest scents ever and sure I have in in roller-ball form and solid form, but dropper form also? HELLZ YES I NEED IT.
3. I just felt like it OKAY!? Don't judge me. Eric duckie will eat you.
Also in the order was a jar of Black Magic. Becca made a jar option!! Which is excellent because I'm not too fond of the tubes. It was kind of solid and it was hard prying the last little bit out. Sure I could have just gotten another bar but...JARS DUDE! NEW STUFF! Can't say no to that. If she somehow made it into a spray I would have gotten it.
Oh man would that be hilarious to spray. It would look like a zombie spewing dead stuff on your face.
I'm not dead thing expert
But I should be
Calaveras is one of my uber favs but This is Halloween is right up there now in my top 5. I'll list 5 someday when I go through them but right now, my brain says these 2 are totally necessary.
This is Halloween is described as "The very essence of Halloween (for a 10 year old), captured in a bottle (or tube)! Candy Corn, Cinnamon Candies, Fruity Chews, a bite of chocolate, and Marshmallow Treats." To me the only way to explain it is BUCKET OF LIPSMACKERS. Seriously. I tried to find another way to explain it, but my head keeps thinking back to me being 12 again with my boatload of Lip Smackers.
Who would hate a smell that reminds them of a time when personal credit card debt, performance reviews, Glee and Bieber didn't exist?!?
Mirror Witch scent notes are described as "...Reverent gifts of Pomegranates, dried Figs, white Sage, candied Ginger, and a vision of White Musk." To me this smells like really good guy smell. I love it and I've worn it just as much as This is Halloween so far.
Bobbing for Apples is described as "...Fresh apples, Apple skin, Bonfire smoke, Hay bales, and Tonka beans." This reminds me so much of a shampoo I once used but can't remember. It smells SO CLEAN! If for some reason I couldn't bathe for a month, I could slam this on with Fresh Snow and people would be all like "well she looks like a filthy human but she smells clean so it must be a lie" and then I wipe my filthyness on them and run away. That's the correct action yes?
Hungry Ghost is described as "...Steaming-hot Green Tea, lively Lemongrass, and Cardamom, with Peppermint providing a wisp of otherworldly chill." I'm not too fond of this ghosty. I think it's the cardamom and lemongrass which is silly for me to pick out because that's half the scent list right there! But it was one of those "don't knock it til ya try it" afterall, who would have guessed cinnamon+orange equal olfactory heaven. You knew this already? Well whatevz.
Green Lady is described as "...Green Bartlett Pears, a basket of Figs, and an apparition of spectral Musk." This smells like green. Super fresh and green. See THIS is why I don't do perfume reviews. My explanations blow.
Burning Times is described as "...Vanilla, Clove,Patchouli, Pink Peppercorn, a hint of Suede, Red Musk, Sandalwood, Cinnamon, Cedarwood, and the smoldering Embers of a thousand years." This one is a very fall-like scent, deep and spicy, a little incense-y, a lottle awesome-y.
Sugar Skulls is a re-release (rerelease? repromote? ack who knows. werds R hard) from last year but I only had a little 5ml bottle of it that I won last year so I grabbed the solid so I wouldn't have to worry about using uo the little bottle. It is described as "...You'll smell sweet baked goods, vanilla cookies, anise, and roses- all the scents of a stroll through a Mexican neighborhood at that time of year." To me this badboy smells like sweet vanilla licorice. This scent is the lightest of the group on me. I kept catching whiffs of sweetness one day and it was bugging me that I couldn't figure out where it was coming from and then I remembered I smeared this on awhile earlier. Memory of champions right here folks.
Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things is described as "Acorns, Oak, Vanilla, Apples, Roasted Spiced Pumpkin, a bit of Musk and a mound of freshly-dug Dirt." I smell a lot of apple in this one. I'm not too fond of this one because of the apple, yet I loved Bobbing for Apples, so I'm guessing it has to do with it reacting to another scent in that combination of scents. Maybe my brain doesn't like apple + dirt, which sucks, because dirt smell is fantastic. Reading that over I sounded sarcastic but I actually mean that, I love the smell of dirt. And dead leaves.
Final Girl is decribed as "...A crushed corsage of Magnolias and Carnations, the musky Cologne of a maniac, a whiff of oil from a freshly-sharpened Chainsaw blade, and the paralyzing scent of fear." A total chick scent because of the heavy florals. It's soft and girly and makes me think of a lace covered vanity with little trinkets and powder jars all over the place.
Solanum is described as "...Rotting pumpkin, Apple cores, Raspberry, Almond, Madagascar Vanilla, Cardamom, and a hint of Immortelle because zombies never die." The bottle of this has a little zombie on it. SO COOL! This one smells like spicy apples to me, kind of like pie! If zombies smelled like this YOU would be the one biting them.
Calaveras is described as "The bestest damn smell on the planet"
Yeah so I made that up, but that's what it could be. It's described as "Named for the sugar skulls which adorn the Day of the Dead altars, this
fragrance is sweet and spicy. Cinnamon, sugar, orange, and sweetened breads dressed up with a smattering of dried roses on a sandalwood altar."
I've talked about this one before and it's still pretty magical. I think I referred to it having a bug spray-type smell (the one where you spray the room and close the doors to kill everything) but in a TOTALLY GOOD WAY! Otherwise I wouldn't have it in 4 different containers! (Roller-ball, solid, dropper bottle, 5ml bottle) The cinnamon orange combo is strange because you can't really pick out either cinnamon or orange. Combined they turn into a whole different wonderful scent. I have a cinnamon orange shower gel that does the same thing. If you haven't tried it yet, JUST FREAKIN DO IT. If Becca made this into a lotion, shower gel, salad dressing, I would so buy it.
Oh Fudge Lip Butter I looooove how creamy this is. My lips were doing that crappy peely chapped thing where it felt like your own lips were cutting each other when rubbed together so this stuff came to the rescue just in time!
And now it's 1:30am, I guess I should sleep sometime eh? I'LL SLEEP WHEN SOLANUM INFECTS ME. Cuz I'm dead. Get it? heh heh hehhhhhhh.....
