I really love the scent of Michael Kors EDP, but have loads of fragrances that I thought I loved until I bought the full size bottle. I wanted to try before I buy, so I bought the rollerball. I would have preferred a full-size rollerball instead of the gloss/EDP combo. I don't really like the packaging as there is no easy way to simply carry one or the other, you must carry the full tube with both gloss and EDP. The packaging should include a small lid so that you can use the products individually. I have used the EDP several times and love the scent; it's a floral with honeysuckle. Very lady-like and not at all overly sweet. It has great staying power. The gloss is just meh. It has a fruity-playdoh smell that's lasts way too long for a gloss. In addition the bare vinyl color is more of a clear gloss. My lips are dark pink, so I didn't notice any hint of color. The formula is definitely not long lasting. It does however feel quite moisturizing. I will be buying a full bottle of the EDP, but will pass on the gloss.

This is an LE 0.17 oz./lip gloss 0.15 oz. rollerball duo.
I was on the hunt for the Michael Kors EDP at Ulta (any size bottle really as it's rare to find). I already had the full size bottle of it that I bought on ebay and I suspected it had been diluted or something (review of that bottle soon) as the sillage wore off after half an hour to an hour.
Anyway, I picked this up as the other sizes were out of stock. I paid around $22 for it and was annoyed that it came with a lip gloss on the other end of it. It's multipurpose and great for travel but I really wanted more bang for my buck and would have preferred a full size roller ball of the EDP so I took off one lippie for that (I'm picky).
I've had this perfume in my bag for a few months now and I just love it! If you're not familiar with this EDP just know that the projection is very strong - that is to say, one spritz from a bottle and you could easily clear a room or give yourself a migraine LOL so I'm glad I have this rollerball so I can just dab behind my ears OR my wrists and that is it. Not overpowering at all that way! I'm really happy. I no longer use my bottle of the EDP & have been decanting it for swaps.
Onto the lip gloss - It's a cool toned milky beige with a hint of pink. I'm of medium olive coloring so I thought it would be too light and would make me look dead and would be otherwise totally useless to me. I'm happy to report that it's very, very sheer so that's not the case. It's long lasting and really great quality but there are some silver glitter particles in it that you see when the lip gloss wears off a bit. I'm not a fan of that. I wish this lip gloss came in other colors BUT I imagine they made it sheer so it would suit every skin tone *shrug*
I use it occasionally to touch up my drying matte lipsticks midday or if I forgot to put on a lip product before work and my lips feel dry as its pretty moisturizing and has slip. It is a bit sticky but I don't mind that as it makes it last longer. I just wish it didn't have the glitter particles in it. The formula is shimmery not creamy or matte. Again, I could do without it but I have found some use for it.
I would definitely purchase it again if I found it online. The EDP end has lasted me a few months with just a few dabs 3x a week. I think there's 98% left which is great. There's been no spillage in my purse as the packaging quality is absolutely excellent. I also wish I could refill it but since it's a rollerball, not sure that's possible (if you know how to do that, message me!)
*Edit* I uploaded pics of it. FYI, the EDP looks more green and the lip gloss looks way lighter in real life (it's not browny at all).

I found this in the little enticing bins at the check out line at Sephora. I have to say, what a great little find for travel. Leave it to Michael Kors to combine the two things I constantly need when I'm out! The lip gloss is a nice consistency, doesn't have a heavy scent, taste or color. It's very glossy with a slight hint of beige; I think it would look good on just about everyone & is the perfect touch up for any color of lipstick you might have on. I like the fragrance (for specifics on it I'd look up the fragrance itself, I'm not enough of a nose to say what it is) & the rollerball has not leaked in my bag at all. The fragrance smells great, not overwhelming when applied to the pulse points & gives enough scent for that halfway point in the evening when I want a little pick me up scent-wise. I travel quite a bit so rather than a big parfum bottle, this will get tossed into the Ziploc (excellent b/c I hate checking a bag). It was about $20, a little pricey but then I figured I spend that on a lippie anyway at Sephora!
