Help me decide which lip tints to bring back!

A look at the Lip Balm Wrangler's EE lip balm collection!


In case you haven't visited The Lip Balm Wrangler 's blog yet, you should -- she is the top lip balm reviewer of the moment. I was so happy to see so many EE's in her collection... it hardly seems possible that I have made that many different flavors :D



On making custom perfumes


A lot of people ask me for advice on making their custom fragrances. I love making them, and it's rare that a scent combination doesn't work. Many get a single-note scent of something they know they like. If you want to make a more complex scent, the general rule is to have at least one top note, one middle note, and one bottom note in your fragrance. 

I also find that 2 scent combinations of from the fruity & fresh or floral & spicy categories are nice together. Some examples are Honeydew+Green Tea, Yuzu+Ginger Ale, Carnation+Clove, and Jasmine+Amber.
