Finally got a sample of this. Very pretty--like it a lot. It's a warm berry vanilla scent warmed up by the bergamot, though still light. Might be too cloying for summer though.

This actually smells JUST like Philosophy's Unconditional Love to me. Similar blah lasting power.

Def does not feel like a high end fragrance. You might be better off with one of B&BW …

TOTALLY agree with the reviewer below! Couldn't understand why this smelled nice but 'familiar.' And then I saw this review..FINESSE SHAMPOO! It smells like pleasant hair products....

Nice but not for the price tag...This is very clean and misleading. The bottle is amazing and sexy--should have been something sensual and saucy like Gueirlan Insolence but this …

I think the most important thing to take away from reviews is context... A lot of negative reviews about the 'brightness' of the color seem to be from my fair skinned sisters.

However, I am Latina and a MAC NC43 for reference. On me this is a lovely color. It's a shade darker than my natural lip color and just makes them look luscious.

It's a nice glossy …

I don't know which lotions others tried but I RIS a bottle of CARAMEL lotion and HOLY WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AMAZING! Like melted vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. SO SWEET but not annoyingly so and just wow...creamy and delicious.

I will admit it smells NOTHING like the cologne spray-this smells better. I found the Caramel PMU to be more like maple syrup and cloying, but this …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Luster

Surprisingly amazing blush. I am NC 43 for reference. I usually prefer a brighter cheek---the color I naturally flush. NARS Torrid is my all time HG for that.

However, sometimes you just want a low key look, especially with smokey eyes. Ladies here suggested LUSTER and at first i wasn't impressed in the pan. Seemed pale and even on the cheek looked a little light. But when it …

OMG...another one of the "I CANNOT wear this EVER!" fragrances..joining the ranks of Angel, B&B Sensual Amber and VR Flowerbomb.

Like all the afore mentioned, this was HORRIFIC on em in the opening. This is more peppery than any of the others. I couldn't stand myself the 2x I tried this, for 15 minutes till it dried down. DISGUSTING, but just as I got up to scrub it …

According to the VCYS Site the scent notes are:
Peppermint Bark Marshmallow Cream (CYS Exclusive) – The delicious scent of Peppermint Bark blended with the creamy scent of marshmallows.

LOVE LOVE THIS! FAVE winter scent ever. It had a subtle chocolaty hint that is super creamy and sweet. Smells like Christmas to me. Similar to B&BW Twisted Peppermint, but 100 times better …

This review is for both the tarts and the perfume. Love this.

Its def a sweet scent similar in many ways to Aquolina Pink Sugar. As per the site, the notes are:

State Fair Delights--All the best of walking down the midway at the State Fair: Lemon Shake-up (Extra sweet lemonade), with funnel cakes and cotton candy

I def get that cotton candy sweetness, but the …

I am somewhat bemused by all these "heavily pigmented" reviews...I actually find the opposite. This blush need to be BUILT on me (NC43 for reference with heavy gold undertones) to show. I am usually a NARS girl and THOSE are pigmented to the teeth! This is in the family of my usual NARS Torrid and Gina, but much more subtle. Which is why I like it.

Where I need to be …
