OMG. I can't believe this is on MUA. This scent brings me back to my childhood in NJ. Every kid who was Cuban or had Cuban parents wore this to school, church, or any social event that required ruffle panties, black patent leather mary janes, and some obnoxious dress with tons of ruffles in a pastel color. Oh and don't forget the the stockings "de hilo". They almost looked like eyelet. Another big fave was Nenuco and Petit Cheri (not Annick Goutal). I had them all since my mother was and still is one of crazy Cuban ladies that would bathe me in the stuff almost to the point of an asthma attack. I love the smell of this. So fresh and floral. But I think what makes me love it so much is that it brings back so many happy memories of my childhood and family. When I was 6 years old, without a care in the world. My fiancee loves it too. His mom is also a crazy Cuban lady.
I can't say this is HG, but it is useable. It did not clump on my lashes, but I always comb them when they're wet as to not get clumps, and it has become a habit for me. My lashes looked long and full. The only gripe I have is when I try to remove it, it takes forever. You have to really rub on the lashes with an oily m/u remover to get it off. And then I use my regular cleanser (Cetaphil) and rub a little more. I would buy if in a pinch, but it is no DiorShow.
Overall a very wearable, clean scent. Smells like a scent that can be used by anyone, young or old. Floral and fresh without being sharp. Smells very similar to Romance to my nose.
I really love this scent om my fiancee. After buying a ton of scents for him, this one is the only one we both agree on. Even his mom loves it, and she doesn't like a lot of men's fragrances. Very seductive scent, and I don't think it is overpowering at all.
Jade is a nice non-offending scent. Good for office. Wouldn't wear it on a date though. I got this as a gift. I wouldn't buy this for myself, but things might change. It smells a little like Eau des Merveilles initially, but loses EDM's sexiness. Not a lot of staying power, died out after 4 hours. I think a lot of people would like this, but lately I like more complex scents. I will edit if I change my mind. After all, it is only my first time wearing it.
I really like this version of Angel Innocent. Initially citrusy, the scent dries down pretty nicely. There seems to be a flowery-caramel-nutty note. I just started wearing it today, so I'll be back to edit. EDIT: I can't get enough of this scent. I've been wearing it since. I think the scent would do even better in the summer. The weather has been mild for this time of year and the fragrance developed so beautifully on one of our 60 degree days. I can't say enough about it. I do wish the bottle was a little more ornate. The original Angel bottle is so gorgeous and this bottle is the same as Angel Innocent.
I really love this scent. It's citrusy, sweet and warm all at the same time. It may be my nose, but it smells like BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar to me. Does anyone get this? It is very nice and I willbuy again. Would be nice for all year round.
I like this scent. Nice and fresh for the office. I can smell the autumn leaves - so weird, but I like it. Got it for cheap at a discount store.

Love this! Removes all my eye makeup and leaves behind an oily film. I don't need to use eye cream anymore because this stuff is so moisturizing. I'm allergic to a lot of stuff out there, but this is my best so far.
Very nice scent. Perfect for fall and winter. Smells like cinnamon and flowers. Nice for evening as well.

The palette is OK. I like the peachy-bronze blush and the two lipglosses. Awesome texture. I can't bring myself to love the eyeshadows though. One is a light gold and the other is reddish-bronzy brown. The gold is very sheer and pale, so it doesn't show on my light tanned skin. And the bronzy shadow looks a little too red on me. Not a beach look for me at all. I can't say I hate it, but its not what I like.
Very nice scent. Fades away too quickly. Fresh and fruity. Nice for Summer.
Didn't really like this. I love Jardin en Mediterranee, but Sur le Nil turns sour on me. Almost like sour milk, but not as strong. I wished I liked it though. It smells great on my co-worker.
Just plain terrible. I almost choked to death when I tested this. It also gave my boyfriend a headached, so we had to drive with the windows down in 32 degree weather for 35 mins on the way home from the mall. Not for me!
Secret Wish's initial notes are pretty similar to Light Blue's but the heart and base is much softer and gentler than LB. It doesn't have that sharp citrus smell that people either love or hate. It is a very pretty perfume. I love the bottle. So cute and girly. Will purchase again.
