Well, I will give it another try, but for now...it's a no-go. This did nothing but jump into my pores and scream, "LOOK AT ME!!!!" I will try it again, as just a 'finisher' and see if it improves anything. But right now, I guess I can say that I'm glad I won't have to be breaking bank on a regular basis.

P.S. I have pretty clear and even skin to …

Nice fruity, floral scent. Decent staying power, especially for this particular olfactory group. A few sprays go a long way. A reviewer below mentioned that this perfume is actually called "Pretty Nina"...but that is not the case. There is another new scent by that name...this one being reviewed is called simply "Nina". I like it a lot.

Like the previous reviewer, I was drawn by the ads for this. They include a little "scratch and sniff" patch, so you can sample the fragrance. Well, that little patch smelled delish. The actual product smells close to the scratch-n-sniff, but it kinda gets obnoxious after a few minutes. It does die down fairly soon after, and what's left behind is only so-so. The lotion itself …Read more

I haven't posted a review in quite some time...but this mascara inspired me to write one. Bought this on a whim...never did any research on it and didn't know anything about it. All I can say is "Wow". Talk about length and separation. I don't ever have problems with flaking or smudging with any mascara that I've tried (don't know why...perhaps because my …Read more

I haven't written a review in quite a long time...but this foundation has inspired me! The reason I stumbled onto MUA was because I was looking for the absolute HOLY GRAIL foundation. Recognizing that one gal's HG isn't necessarily EVERY gal's HG, I set about trying all of the "best rated" foundations that seemed to fit my skin type. I really wanted that …Read more

I smelled this on somebody and loved it...so I went out that night and got it. But it reminded me of something that I couldn't put my finger on. Then it hit me...Charlie 'White' by Revlon. I pulled out my bottle of that and put them side by side on my arm (well, far enough apart to keep them separate) and they are IDENTICAL. So, if you decide you like it, don't bother with …Read more

Not totally what I expected...all I smell is cedar, flat-out cedar. It's not sweet to me in the least, nor is it musky. Very woodsy, almost masculine. It lasted pretty much all day on me (of course it did, only because I didn't love it).

Oh geez...I need to just face the fact that Chanel and I will never be friends. I went through hell to get my hands on a sample of the parfum, finally got it....and....I'm disappointed. Chanel, it's not you...it's me. Much too soapy and mature for me. It reminds of very rich old ladies *ducks and runs*.

Very sharp sandalwood (not good). I compare everything to Gap Smooth Sandalwood (discontinued), so that is my baseline. The very-late dry-down smells exactly like Samsara...which I do like, oddly enough. The search continues...
