This scent is so great. It is such a sweet, flirty smell. I wore this once when I was much younger, and completely forgot about it. One night at the movies, I kept smelling something that smelled so good to me. I couldn't put my finger on it, but it made me have happy memories. A few days later I was at walmart and thought i'd stop by the perfumes. I was looking around and found this, and it hit me, this was the scent! I bought a travel size bottle for maybe $10. I really think that this scent can be for anyone. The bottle is very pretty, and sophisticated. My complaint with it is when I throw it in my purse, as I do with all of my scents, the little spray pump will come off. Maybe it's my own fault, though. I will definitely repurchase again and again!

I was suckered into buying this because it was new and the bottle was very pretty. I was looking for a new foundation because the Covergirl oil control just wasn't doing it for me. I saw this, read the reviews, and decided I had to try it. It's one of the more expsensive drugstore foundations. I got mine for about $12 at Target. The foundation itself I'd say was a medium coverage. I have some hyperpigmentation, and to cover it I had to use a second layer just over that, and then concealer. It had a very nice look to it...for a minute. I have combination skin, that has been super oily the past month. This made it so much worse. I know, I know, luminous finish makeup tends to do that. But I always have high hopes for new makeup. If you have oily skin, stay away! I had to put powder on and oil blot several times a day, during my 10 hour day. If you're not as oily as I am, I think this would work great, and be very beautiful.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I bought this spray back in December, because I had read really good reviews and my makeup is notorious about melting off and wiping off onto everything. I bought it at Ulta, and it was really the only kind of product like what I was looking for. I realized that it doesn't quite keep my makeup on at all. I just quit using it, and it ended up sitting in a drawer for ever. One day, fed up with my concealer wiping off when I put on my powder, I decided to try to spray this on top of the concealer. It worked! After it dried, I put on my setting powder and all of my concealer stayed put, and made it blend in a little better with the rest of my foundation. As far as repurchising, I wouldn't. It's too costly for what it did for me. ELF has something just like this that works just the same.

This product is probably the only time I have ever noticed a difference in my hair. I have baby fine hair, so it's constantly damaged by heat, hair ties, and shampooing constantly. I used this product for about a month, and that's when I ran out. It made my hair so smooth and you couldn't see any of the breakage I had. I actually got compliments from several people who asked what I had been doing with my hair. My complaints are, it's a little pricey. I shampoo my hair everyday, sometimes twice, so I went through this fast. Maybe if I only washed every other day it would have lasted longer. I know that sulfate free shampoos arent supposed to lather, but sometimes on rare occasion I just didn't feel like it was completely cleaning my hair. My remedy to this was that every few days I would use a Suave clarifying shampoo to make sure I got everything out. Bottom line, this product is wonderful. I have tried several other high end shampoos, conditioners, and deep conditioners, and nothing has ever compared to this.
