I sniffed this on a tester in Nordstrom's and really enjoyed the sweet, uplifting citrus scent that reminded me of SweetTarts candy. I bought a sample, and it goes on smelling very sharp and alcoholy--not like candy at all. Eventually the SweetTarts reveal themselves, but they are mixed with something green and somewhat acidic that hurts my nose when I inhale it. This doesn't smell …Read more

Extrait: Wow, this is horrible in the sample vial and doesn't smell very well-blended at all. On the skin it isn't unbearable, but it isn't delicious like it sounded like it would be on the web site. It has a weak cinnamon air freshener/candle-like vibe which just doesn't seem right as a scent emanating from a person's body. Also, the milky note translates to …Read more

Extrait: This is kind of unpleasant in the bottle, but on my skin it is nice. It smells like a honey-scented lotion, or like a honey handsoap that could be purchased at a health-food store. It's not super-literal or overly sweet, which is a good thing. I'm a little disappointed I don't get any orange flower, since that was in the list of notes. There is also no sillage, and I …Read more

Extrait: I can barely smell this. When I do put my nose against my wrist it smells very nice though. Very well-blended, soft sandalwood that isn't overly sharp or masculine. Very unisex.

Thought I'd love this. It begins smelling wonderful like a coffee shop, but then it transforms on my skin into the aroma of flea-and-tick pet shampoo. Not chemistry-compatible for me. :(

This lippie has been recommended to me time and time again, so I finally purchased it. I had also tried it in the MAC store several times, but thought it was too boring to shell out the money for. But now that I've worn it at home, I do like it. It's a pretty standard shimmery nude, but not too metallic or gritty. It's not anything out of the ordinary or mind-blowing, but I do …Read more

Very nice sheer brownish-berry-red. I like it a lot, but I already have MAC Hot Tahiti, which is similar but more natural-looking on me. I purchased this because it was recommended for redheads as a safe red. Like I said, I do like it and it is flattering. I just love Hot Tahiti more.

Very nice soft-yet-bright coral. Kind of reminds me of the model Twiggy and mods and the 60s and 70s. It's unusual but flattering. I have to be in a certain mood to wear it, as it is more distinctive than versatile, but I do really enjoy putting it on when the mood strikes me.

This shade is flattering but a bit boring. It looks mauve in the tube, which I was very excited about. But when I put it on, it is more of a generic sheer brownish nude that you could buy just about anywhere. I will probably finish this tube, but I wouldn't repurchase, as it is nothing special.

One of my favorite pink lipsticks. It's very vibrant without being extremely gaudy. You can find other pinks that look like this at the drug store, which is why it doesn't get a 5, but it is an awesome lipstick. This lippie reminds me of the '70s and bombshells of that era. I like that it's moisturizing and not chalky.
