I got the eau de parfum . I had high expectations, but this perfume is really not suited to the hot humid climate I live in here in Malaysia. Its too warming and strong, I should have gotten the eau de toilette. Definitely can't can't wear it to the office. Perhaps this is more suited to colder climates.

The fragrance mist smells like cough syrup and gave me a headache . Disappointed. I'll stick to my body shop vanilla oil.
I really like this fragrance , its very soft feminine and elegant , it feels like something id imagine kate middleton would wear. I think itd be great for a date too. The smell is not too loud and not Headache or sneeze inducing at all which is a problem for me.
I liked the refreshing smell of this , to me it kind of smells like apple soda , however the staying power is pretty non existent . I know you cant expect a body mist to be as strong or lasting as an edp but this seems to disappear as soon as you spray it on. Perhaps i should have bought one of the vanillay scents.
I have acquired alot of MAC items ( brushes , eyeshadows , blushes , eyeliner ) and I was not too sure about them , however lipsticks are one thing thats worth the hype I have the shades ruby woo, Candy yum yum and brave and i love them all.
I really like this , i wear it sometimes in the summer or around christmas time when im feeling festive.
I personally think the formula is fine but the colour just does not work with my NC43 skin
This is a review of the 2012 edition. I was looking for something refreshing to wear on a hot sticky slow summer day , my sweet perfumes were just not cutting it. However , I found out that this really not girly enough for me though it is refreshing , im still on the hunt for a summer fragrance. this was my first and probably last attempt at a unisex fragrance.
When i first got this i loved it , but now almost a year later i figured out it causes ugly white marks on my nails , possibly because it adheres so hard to the nail that it causes the surface of the nail to chip off with the polish . I will be looking for another base coat that is compatible with my opi nail polishes.

I got this for free with fantasy ( which I like ) .I find this scent so sickeningly sweet , it smells like a blueberry muffin which is not necessarily a bad thing . I sprayed it on my neck and now 3 hours layer I need to take a shower because it's making me nauseous.
oh my god, I can't believe I've been living in the UK for so long but never realised the beauty of these sleek palettes. I had low hopes for this because it was so inexpensive, despite the great reviews from pixiwoo. I really love these eyeshadows, they're more pigmented than MAC eyeshadows and you can experiment with them more than the MAC ones since they are so much cheaper. In fact, I'm beginning to think I actually prefer these to MAC shadows, regardless of price. the colours work amazingly for me I'm an NC43 . I might just have to go out and buy more palettes before I leave the UK. amazing.
For reference, I have brown-black hair Pro: - hair looks less oily Con: -hair becomes frizzy and chalky looking - does not eliminate odour, in fact massaging the product spreads the odour from the scalp to the whole hair so it smells like unwashed hair and fragrance ew. - hair feels uncomfortable, not refreshed everytime I get annoyed by how dirty my hair feels but can't wash it, I use this but always regret it, and it makes me even more tempted to wash my hair. Its has its pros but its not perfect. I might try the TRESemmé dry shampoo next despite its bad reviews.
I used to dislike this till I applied it wet and now I'm so glad I didn't swap it ! Applied dry it seems too sheer and bleh for me, sort of like a bad drugstore eyeshadow. However I've been applying it wet and its AMAZING , Its one of my fav Mac shadows now. I wear it alone all around my eye with lots of black kohl and mascara. It looks a lot like UD's Ransom if you're looking for a dupe.
This is my holy grail lip balm. Its perfect. I rub it into my lips in the morning, let it sit for a min then wipe most of it off and Voila ! moisturised , protected but non greasy or waxy, comfortable lips !. Love love love. I usually try out different lip balms but I've stopped since I discovered this.
The color is absolutely flawless but the formula could be better. Its the first nude I've found that I feel comfortable wearing out . I wish I could find the exact same colour in a Mac lipstick , I'm not a fan of the strong fragrance , it leaves an irritating bitter taste in my mouth like when you accidentally breathe in perfume and it goes on a bit blotchy too so it looks quite 'drugstor-ey'. But Overall I'm impressed because of the color, it looks amazing with a gloss on top . the packaging is cute too. nc42 for reference
