I don't think this product is horrible overall, but I did find it greasy! crazy greasy!! Idk maybe I used too much, but it was like grease city on my hands, bad!! I do like the light scent, and it does moisturize... i work in the food industry and wash my hands constantly, which makes them sooooooooo dry! this on my hands completely healed the rough skin, that patchy red look you get when you scrub too much, went away after 2 uses! I do like a different MUCH CHEAPER product much more that absorbs almost instantly, and its completely grease free, its amazing, i think ill do a review on that too if i already haven't! awesome stuff, but if you want something more scented and like a spot treatment, i would say this is a good one
Okay, I got this about 2 weeks ago i wanna say, and I have worn it about 7 times... I always moisturize using the ponds (blue cap) moisturizer about an hour b4 doing makeup, and using this alone or over some of my youth code bb cream and I ALWAYS set it with a powder, ive used the mayb. matte powder, and the jordana translucent, and the essence mattifying powder. (diff each time) it always turns out great!! It is a very lightweight formula, clean texture, and a smooth finish on the skin. It does not flake on my dry skin on my forehead, and doesnt oxidize either!! it looks very natural, just be wary of color selection! Try em out if you can!! but I got mine at wal-mart for like 6$!!! thats cheap for a brand new product esp from revlon!! my colorstay costed like 12$!! so yay.. I would say this is a def win for revlon, i want to try the powder next... i hear its not as good as the found, but we shall see :) ** okay, so I got the powder about 3 weeks ago, and I love the powder too! it is incredible, I actually use it with my mac pro longwear too! I absolutely am in love with the nearly naked stuff so far, I hope they follow UD's lead and come up with a whole naked line :) I had no sensitivities to these products, and I have not noticed any oxidation using these items, I am extremely impressed by revlon leading the way :)

Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Radiance by Britney Spears
sadielovesmakeup06 11/28/2012 5:28:00 AM
I got this for about 15$ at tj maxx. I thought with most other B.S. fragrances this would be amazing! I just did not get that with this.. Idk, it just smelled cheap, and basic. It doesn't seem as though she was as meticulous when creating this scent as she was with others. The bottle also looks somewhat tacky and cheaper. I do not like believe but its bottle is nice, and chic, this is its opposite! its notes are a blend of red berries, delicate flower petals and soft musk. I like many fragrances with these notes, but this one just does not suit my sniffer lol
I got this in the 1oz size from ulta for like 20 bucks! I like it. it is very Apple-y lol... so if intense fruity is not your thing, this will not be. I did not know when purchasing, that it was on gwp, so i got this huge, amazing dkny tote bag, its like a silver patent leather bag, very high quality, and very unexpected!! DKNY always makes such high quality fragrances, and products! I love to wear this in summer time, esp when camping, or beaching it for the day, as it is so citrus-y. its def an acquired taste to wear, but a great scent to add to a summertime collection
Fragrances -Parfums de Coeur - Body Fantasies Vampire EDP
sadielovesmakeup06 11/28/2012 5:07:00 AM
This is a musky type spicy sweet scent! when i smelled it, i immediately thought "this is what bella would probably smell like if she were real" lol... it definately embodies I think everything about things like twilight, or vampire diaries... when i smell it i think of those things right away!! I like this!! its a great scent for such a great price, and walmart carries it all year round, so it is incredibly available to the masses, I would wear this to like the movies, or romantic restaurants, def not in summer time, i do not feel this is a summertime scent, its just a bit too heavy wearing for summer!
my fiance likes this scent.. oddly enough his ex gf wore this cuz he liked it, and at first i laughed it off. One day in pacsun i decided to give it a whirl, and surprisingly i liked it! It comes in a tiny bottle so I only wear it on very good occasions, like our anniversary. It is a very hawaiian flowery scent, which I tend to like when it comes to florals. I wish the pacsuns still sell it, but now u can only get it at the outlet stores :( bad move pacsun, bad move!!
I started wearing this when I was 14. It was my first perfume purchase that was not Dollar Store, that I bought with my $$ from my job lol.. Everytime I smell it i think of high school. It is a refreshing flowery fragrance with the notes of grapefruit, fresh green notes, light floral notes, jasmine, poppy, sandalwood, amber and musk. I do think it is a clean scent, and wear it when I am feeling nostalgic or rustic style in my outfit, so with like boots and cowboy hat lol etc....its good! I was surprised that Liz Claiborne Co. makes this, could not see that!!
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Curious by Britney Spears
sadielovesmakeup06 11/28/2012 4:50:00 AM
I have had several bottles of this fragrance. My most recent one I got was at big lots for like 6 bucks for a gift set!! amazing!! Im always on the look out for great perfume deals as it can be costly!! I dont mind this perfume, but it is not one I run to often, once in a while its nice, more in spring than any other time I tend to reach for this! it reminds me of a lot of classic scents and i think for many years this will be a classic scent.
I am on my 4th bottle of the Paris Hilton original perfume, I never noticed the difference in the purchase, as the bottle, and cover are the same as the original. A good friend I lived with for a while in high school introduced me to this, and ever since, I have been wearing it, so for over 7 years! This is the most incredible scent I have ever had, it is my favorite, and my signature scent! I will always wear this as long as they make it!! Top notes: wet ozonic accords and apple. Heart: lily of the valley, jasmine, freesia and mimosa. Base: sandalwood, skin musk and ylang-ylang.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - britney spears CIRCUS FANTASY
sadielovesmakeup06 11/28/2012 4:33:00 AM
I got this at TJ maxx. I tend to go more for sweet, sexy, fruity scents. I figure summer is my season as far as scents go lol, but the last 2 years I have been branching out and trying to go for different scents and try different types of fragrance. I was told this would be one I could possibly like, so when i saw it for 14$ I decided to pick it up. I wear it on occasion, because to me it is a special occasion scent. I like it a lot, but I could not wear it every day like i could others. So when I have a date night with my bf, I wear this, or like a holiday. Be sure before purchasing it, to go to like a fragrance counter, and put some on your wrist, and smell it throughout the day, my friend loved it at first then by the end of the day she was like sick of the smell of feet, it was the perfume, mixed with her body chemistry and not well! I did not have that problem, I did not mind it at all!
I got this at TJ maxx, and I like the original, but I LOVE this spin! It is such a great sexy scent, I absolutely love wearing it out, it really gets men's attention. lol... Its top notes are bergamot and black currant, and its heart notes include nuances of jasmine petals with an orange bloom. These give way to sandalwood and vanilla accords that form its base notes. AHHHH incredible!! I would not wear this to work, i think it is a bit heavy, and more of a night time scent. I really recommend this scent to single girls lol, trust me, it gets attention
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Preferred fragrance- Kitty Girl
sadielovesmakeup06 11/28/2012 4:05:00 AM
I got this one along with another fragrance from the same company for 2 for $10! 5$ for a bottle of perfume is amazing!! I never count out perfumes that are dupes for high end perfumes... this is the companys impression of Katy Perry's Purr.It def smells SIMILAR to purr, but has its own standing, and I really like it! it is that sweet sexy floral scent, that is very young and def a whole day scent, its sexy enough for nighttime, but light and floral enough for daytime too. Its staying power is okay, I would reapply midday, but if u do that, it lasts all night too! I def want to get and try more of this company's fragrances, as they def have an incredible selection! but this scent 5 stars!!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Preferred fragrance- Fleur De Lies
sadielovesmakeup06 11/28/2012 3:47:00 AM
I got this at Deb Stores, they carry the brand "Preferred fragrance", which does really good fragrance dupes for high end generally celeb perfumes, and this one is like a dupe for rihannas rebel fleur... the bottle even looks similar, but not the same.. this one is a bit more basic, but it smells great & is incredible!! I cannot pinpoint what the notes are or anything, I do know it is a very musky scent, mainly I would say it is a nighttime scent. this one is very particular, it is musky floral, but not much for sweet, or fruity scents, so if you do not like musky scents, this is not for you!! if so, i highly suggest you try it!! I never knock knock offs lol, cuz on occasion i find great ones, at a very cheap price compared to the original, for ex, this one was only $5!!
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Britney Spears In Control
sadielovesmakeup06 11/28/2012 3:24:00 AM
this was a limited edition product! ** I got this at Herberger's when they had a gift with purchase, it came with a cute pink leopard jewelry box... the bottle for this is modeled after curious obviously with its name, but this one is black, and has a bright pink atomizer,... the puffy thing. the fragrance itself is absolutely amazing!!! its top note is loquat fruit, middle notes consist of midnight orchid, crème brûlée, black vanilla bean and tonka crystals. The base notes are sugared sandalwood and musk. its an amazing scent, I really wish they would bring it back, as i think it is one of her best scents!! it came out in 2006. It is light enough for school and work but in using the lotion with it, can be a great going out scent. when i smell this, i do not think of a specific season, or time of day, i think it is definately an all purpose scent!
