Lotions/ Creams -Bodycology - Brown Sugar Vanilla Body Cream

Perhaps I got a BAD bottle, but this smelled too much like play-doh. Found it to be thick and sticky. It is similar to Bath & Body Works Brown Sugar, which I also didn't like. SOOOO, I mixed it into VS's Amber Romance lotion. NOW I can wear it!
I agree, this doesn't do much. And maybe I got a bad one, because the scent was SO light that I could barely detect any at all! NOT a fav! However(and quite shockingly!), I LOVE the Imari roll on! THAT does last ALL day!
Nice berry scent, but a bit too sweet for me. Don't get much of the violet, mostly berry.
FUGLY bottle. But the scent is so unique, unusual, and intriguing! I wanna like it, I wanna hate it, that I'm in the middle of the road, wondering............As I keep taking sniffs. It is a rare scent. I don't believe I've smelled this scent on too many women, but it is a nice floral. And it's feminine. I find it to be a soapy/powdery clean musky scent that is a bit strong, so I'd go lightly with this(you don't want to use it as an all-over body spray!). And I don't get "old lady". I mean, enough of that already! GEESH! I mean, it is a "mature" scent, but it's not only for the geriatric crowd! On the right person, of ANY age, I think this would be a lovely feminine scent! No fruity candy stuff here! And THANK GAWD! This is sure to stand out and make a subtle statement. Which is classy! UPDATE:Thought I'd mention that this kinda reminds me a bit of Rare Pearls, but NOT as strong! So, if you want something similar to that, I'd say this is kinda close.
I kinda really like this! It is a classy scent, reminding me also of Samsara! A nice light fruity-floral. Slightly musky.
I think it smells like Imari Seduction and the original Imari. Nice, but I prefer the sweeter scent Imari Seduction.

Along with Sensual Amber, I think this is another great scent. I find the others too overwhelmingly SWEET and STRONG and just plain CHEAP and STINKY. This is kinda subtle. A bit sweet and musky. But you can definitely smell the apple. It's a very uplifting and cheerful crisp apple scent. Not offensive at all, like some other sticky sweet apple scents are. This is kinda clean and fresh smelling. NICE!

All I got from this was a suntan lotion smell and some plastic play-doh fumes. Pass.

FRENCH FRIES??? OKAAAAY. To each her nose. I got maple syrup, like that sweet sticky stuff for pancakes and waffles? Yeah, so yummy to eat, but not to wear! TOO sweet, like TOO much caramel! I mean, who wants to walk around smelling like Mrs.Butterworth's? No thank you. I was really expecting something like Sensual Amber, but maybe a bit sweeter.....You know, with all that brown sugar going on? YUCKY. YUCK. YUCK. YUCKY!

Out of all their scents, this is one of the best! I have sniffed through the whole store, only thinking that this one would work, along with maybe their Country Apple scent. This is a light amber scent. Not overwhelming at all. Kinda musky and sweet. I do prefer VS Amber Romance though, as I get more of an amber-floral scent. However, Sensual Amber would be better at layering.

Not too bad from a lot of their other scents, just a bit TOO much! Too much floral! And it's strong! I also thought it was a bit too sweet. It is a bit pretty though, just not for me, as I prefer softer florals.

Not the worst, but certainly not great. To me, this smelled synthetic. Like a plastic doll smell. Someone else mentioned play-doh? Yep, that comes to mind as well. VERY soft on the vanilla.
I can see the similarities to Obsession.......Kinda. This is more of a sweet and bubbly vanilla. I think of Michael Kors..............Even Glow by J.Lo, a bit. I didn't do well with Obsession. It just stank on me, but I really like Spark(as I do Michael Kors and even Glow by J.Lo). I usually detest most Liz Claiborne perfumes, so I was a bit surprised that I would like this, but I think this is one of the best of the whole bunch. Can't find it anywhere but online(beautyboutique.com). And it is affordable. I also think it is a bit masculine, but certainly NOT manly! I wouldn't want any man wearing this! I also recall Guess from the 90's as I had once wore it. That is most similar to Spark than Obsession. And it was even nicer than Obsession!
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 6 color Metallic Eyeshadow in Sweet Pleasure

Oops.........Posted this somewhere else! Anyway, pretty kit with pinks, purples, mauves........Pretty with my hazel eyes, but they aren't very long lasting nor dark enough. But, I do have oily skin and nothing lasts very long anyway. Kit sucks to open though! Has a bit of sparkle to them. UPDATE:Purchased the "Dreamy" eyeshadow kit as well. But, because they disappear so quickly and are of a chalky quality, I'm bumpin' down to a 2.
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 6 color Metallic Eyeshadow in Cafe Au Lait

I don't see this listed, so I'll post here. I have the 6 Color Kit in Sweet Pleasure. It has pinks, purples, and mauves. Pretty kit, but light. They also don't last very long. But, I do have extremely oily skin, so NOTHING will stay on past an hour anyway. SUCKS, but it is what it is. For a buck, this does the job. They also have a bit of sparkle to them.
