After having a sample of this attar for about a year, I can say with confidence that it is my perfect signature scent. It opens with smokey incense and roses, and dries down to a very sexy, slightly musky skin scent that melds perfectly with my chemistry. I cannot stop smelling my wrist when I wear this. It evolves over many hours, and is perceptible about 6-8 hours in. Sillage is perfect. One touch on pulse points is plenty. This is a very spendy 'fume. I paid $395 Canadian for it at Andrews, however the lovely woman at the counter then gave me about a dozen generously sized samples to compensate. It is worth every penny. I have tried hundreds of perfumes over the past couple of years, and none compare to this hauntingly beautiful scent. I would suggest getting a small decant first, however, because it is clearly not for everyone, as the previous reviewer will attest to.
I concur with the previous reviewer. This is the worst primer I've ever used, and I've tried many. Greasy, makeup slides off throughout the day, and I ended up with two huge cystic pimples that I am only now getting rid of. I got this in a VIB kit from Sephora, otherwise I'd return it. And I don't want to give it to anyone in case they have the same reaction. Into the garbage it goes.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - De-Slick in a Tube Mattifying Gel

I feel as if I'm perhaps being a bit harsh here, as there are no mattifying primers that have worked for me yet. Maybe I'm taking out my frustrations on my latest purchase, Urban Decay De-Slick in a Tube. Useless. That's about it in a nutshell. Feels very matte when first applied, but I'm an oilslick by 10am. I've tried it with a few different foundations, both powder and liquid, and have used it with other primers as well. I've tried with powder and no powder. Nothing. Still useless. Back to Sephora it goes.

What a gorgeous eyeshadow! Lovely, subtle pink with a nice irridescence. Brings a nice sparkle to my hazel eyes!
The best moisturizer I've ever used, bar none. I've used La Mer gel and creme, Guerlain and countless others, and this is the best. My sensitive, combo, acne prone skin looks amazing. I was given a sample at sephora and was skeptical. I ended up buying a full sized tube from eBay. I have used it day and night for the past few days and the results are profound and obvious. My skin is smooth, even-toned, and my pores are way less noticeable. As well, my acne scars are almost invisible. No fragrance, non pore-clogging. Love it. Would not hesitate to repurchase.
I got a sample of this at Sephora yesterday. All I can say is that it screams 1985 to me. Not for me.
This is my first review ever on MUA. I love this perfume. After years of wearing strictly "natural and organic" essential oils, my husband picked this out for me when we got married in Las Vegas four years ago. It is sweet, whimsical and unique. To me, there is no other scent like it. Every time I smell it I am reminded of my wedding day (well, that and the old Bumble and Bumble formulations for curly hair), and I often wear it for "date night". It's not for everyone, certainly. But it's one of my signature scents. I love it all, from the licorice and anise topnotes to its sweet vanilla and musk drydown.
