Unfortunately, this product is discontinued, but it is fantastic, both in scent and quality. I had it on today, and I didn't even need to spray it eight hours into the day. Instead, I received a new burst of amazingness to my nose even after all those hours! I think this is the quintessential summertime fragrance. It smells like a tropical evening. All you need is a flower in your hair and a maxi dress for a sexy excursion along with this scent. I don't really discern the strong vanilla as others do, which is great because it's not my have. Instead, to me it is slightly floral, heady, and coconutty. Vacation in a bottle.
Amazing lip color!!! This is a bright pink -- I'd refer to it as bubblegum, actually. It's a hot color for a night on the town, but I also think it's carried off nicely with just a little mascara and not much more. It's so sexy. I find the formula to be high quality, and I really like all the Vivids.
This perfume is housed in such a lovely bottle! So chic! At first, it is quite sweet, but then it dries down into a really lovely day scent. I was actually surprised at the complexity of it, and I think I go against all those who complain of its sweetness. It isn't cloying to me, despite the fact that I rarely like the very sweet fragrances. This one is feminine in every sense of the word. And I do think it'd be suitable for all ages.
This perfume reminds me a teeny bit of #5. It must be the aldehydes, but I'm not sure. It really is a beautiful sort of everyday scent though. It's refined and mature, but I can see women 30 and over wearing it best. It has an intensity to it, but it really isn't cloying at all. I wish I were better at describing scents as to the actual notes, but this scent certainly upholds the quality of the Chanel name for sure.
For some reason, I look best in warm reds, and this one is definitely just that; it's an orange-y red, and it provides an awesome pop of color when I just want black mascara and a mouth with impact! The formulation is darn good for the price. It definitely stays for a long time, and it seems to become a stain, which I don't mind. It's a neat color, and I'm glad I have it in my lipstick rotation!
I agree with the reviewer below me; this is without a doubt a LOVE IT or HATE IT fragrance. To me, it really is an early 90s scent, but it's the first perfume I ever bought myself so it is special. I really love it; it lasts the longest on me of any perfume I've ever worn. You don't have to wear much at all to get noticed. It's distinctive, not for those who just like to be safe or fit in.
I've tried to wear it several times, after a friend bought this for me a couple years ago. And, I must say, I'm not very picky about trying scents, and I don't have a hugely sensitive nose by any means. Still, and I think, this is quite telling, I find it overly warm and sweet, and the combination is kinda nauseating. I just can't get into this one at all, which is sad, because the bottle is, admittedly, cute!
I love NYX's matte lipsticks. They have, as usual, truly unique and cool colors, and they are very long-lasting, as matte's generally are. I wore perfect red today, and it lasted hours! It is a gorgeous bright red, in between warm and cool, a true red. It isn't that drying on me, surprisingly, considering how inexpensive it is, but perhaps because I've only really worn them in the summer. Would definitely try out additional colors.
Calvin Klein's Obsession does remind me of the 80s, I must admit. My mom gave this one to me, because she knows I love having quite a perfume collection. It does have its own distinctive scent, which to (amateur in talking about perfumes) is a very warm, almost overtly sexual, gourmand fragrance. If I just use one spray, it lasts for a long time and really isn't too off-putting. However, any more than that, I can see that this would be incredibly cloying. It's definitely more of a wintry type scent. Not really my thing, but nonetheless, it will retain its place on my shelf, at least for now.
This lipstick is HG for me. It is beautifully creamy with great pigment. It's my go-to nude lipstick. Topped with Myth lip glass, it's perfection! It looks great with my pale skin, because it's not the nude color that makes me look dead! Instead, it's a little peachy and a little pink, which combine to give my lips some life! I wish this weren't LE.

Cha cha, colorwise, is very fun. I love the creamsicle color, because it's so fun for summer and so different from any other lipstick. It's a pale, milky, peachy orange. However, as many other reviews have stated, it is very chalky and weird-looking on the lips by itself. I put Mac's lip glass in Myth over top and it looked awesome, however. Overall, it could go on better (and I used a lip brush) but it is a fun item to have in my makeup stash!
I get it -- this product is probably relatively good for dry, mature skin, or winter time skin cleaning. However, it considering it's a CLEANSER, it does NOT adequately clean my face. Left behind is sunscreen and makeup, which is very disappointing. Despite my wanting to be gentler on my 30+ skin, I I don't think I can deal with a product that requires so many extra steps, (makeup wipes beforehand and toner afterward before moisturizer). Disappointing.
Absolutely love this super red RED lipstick. It's definitely in your face bright red -- an orange red. I wore it out last night, and my confidence factor and sexiness was just amped up, for sure! The formulation is VERY long lasting, and even after dinner, when you have to reapply, it's not absolutely necessary. One could put some balm or gloss over top and still have a lot of pigment underneath. One of my faces!!!
Incanto Bliss is a good summer fragrance, and the bottle is so pretty! However, the stuff does not last at all on me, and I consider it almost more like a body spray, to be honest. The scent is pretty: sweet, fruity, and floral.

I have to say, I really like this color especially for the summer! I put it on today, and it made me so happy, and brightened up my look! It has good staying power, and while it is a little frosty (not my thing...I'm more of a cream or matte finish gal), but I liked the change of adding a little frost to my lipstick! Overall, it's wearable and fun!
