Disclaimer: I have been getting "into" perfumes for about the last year, but am still faaar from a perfume expert.

I like this one. Overall, like a B-, I guess. It's a very unoffensive, light, florally "clean" smell. The name "Halloween" really makes no sense based on the smell. And packaging. No idea why they went with that. I found one at Ross for …

This has a lot of high reviews, but I have to say, if you don't have pale skin, this may look terrible. (I think a lot of people on MUA are dis-proportionally fair-skinned people?) It looks terrible on me. Even as a base, wayyy too light. Keep that in mind. I'm about an NC30, for reference.

Worst customer service experience of my life. Almost impossible to cancel their "maven box" bullshit, or even get a human on the phone. Nailpolishes are mediocre at best, but mostly the formulas are clumpy and crap. You can google and see lots more customer complaints. DO NOT SUPPORT THEM.

This is, consistency-wise, one of the best nailpolishes I have ever used. Across all brands. Ever. (I have tried a lot). It's truly a one coater, it looks exactly like the color in the bottle, in one coat. The brush is great. I am able to use it very precisely on my small nails. If you have small enough nails and angle it right you can coat the entire nail in one swipe. The color is nice, a …Read more

Strangely, I find this smells great, I will sometimes open the bottle to smell it...but I have no desire for MYSELF to smell like that. It's pretty pure rose, like fresh cut roses in a florist. Smells great. Too strong and one-note for me, though. I found this for super cheap at Marshalls, so I use it to spray rooms sometimes, or like my sink to keep it smelling fresh. A weird use for …Read more

This smells so lovely. For some reason, it makes me want to wear it on a rainy day. Maybe the smell reminds me of a rainy garden a bit. A soft, powdery rose. Not sharp at all. Would repurchase for sure. Only downside: the lasting time. On me, barely a few hours. Kind of a bummer, but so lovely at first...

This actually smells great, if you are into very sweet smells. It doesn't come across as synthetic, if that makes sense. And not too young. Definitley not a mature scent by any means, but I'm in my late 20's and don't feel ridiculous wearing it. Also, on me, perfumes tend to not last long at all. Even fancy higher end ones. This one does, though. Don't overdo it. It lasts …Read more
