I received this as a gift from a dear friend in the UK weeks before the US release. The bottle itself is unique…toppled at an angle with a silver snail sneaking it’s way up......combines timeless classic design with unexpected features.

I’ve been wearing it for a few weeks now-- it’s somewhat of a sweet floral fragrance. Not what I was expecting at all with a name like …

Vanille includes notes of Brazilian orange, Indonesian cloves, petitgrain, rum extract, Bourbon vetiver, ylang-ylang, Indian sandalwood, gaiac wood, Vanilla absolute from Madagascar, amber and tonka.

I very much like vanilla that is not teeth-rotting sweet and light. I like unusual, dark vanilla fragrances like Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille, Shalimar Ode a la Vanille, Annick …

The first whiff is indeed delicious! Fresh, warm, sweet baked goods, a caramel note that is a little burnt, the sweet air of a bakery store.

But, BIG but, for me this lovely bakery scenario last only 10- 15 minutes, then starts to veer in other, no less interesting, but non-baked goods associated directions for me. And a what good thing that is-- I'd never get anything done …

Lips - NYC New York Color - Smooch Proof Lip Stain (All)

Nov/07/2011

I bought 497 Rock on Ruby which is a true INTENSE red!
I 've tried other lip stains w/ no luck and ended up returning every single one. I've been wearing this for about a month and am impressed. Lips must be prepped or this will emphasize any dryness. For an all out evening look I applied two very light layers. I love the sharp point that makes outlining the lips a breeze-- no …

Best 99 cents I've spent at CVS! A bright pinky-red w/ med. color saturation.I'm a NC 30, blue eyed blonde and this color is perfect for daytime-- brightens my face & teeth. I think the long last finish is a bit of a misnomer. This is not one of those l/s that is matte and wears for 8 hrs. The texture is light and slightly moist. Had to apply a clear balm after 3 hrs. to refresh …Read more

Lipstick - NYC New York Color - 309B Sheer Red

Nov/06/2011

Wow- 99 Cents! As others have mentioned this is not sheer,but semi-opaque. A few swipes and the color is well saturated. Nice amount of moisture in this l/s. To further the length of wear I applied and blotted twice. Still left my lips fairly moist. Sheer red is a brick red-- very close to MAC's Dubonnet ( which does dry my lips out if I don't apply a balm after an hour). Left a …Read more

I love, love this fragrance - love it! It reminds me of a spiced dessert syrup that's part of an Indian dessert called golub jamun. It's a dish I've had many times and in the company of good friends.

It's a fragrance that smells like it looks - lusciously, exotically sweet and thick, a little spicy, delicately perfumed with florals at the fringes (the golub jamun …

Oh, I love this color-- good saturation that leaves a stain after wearing for approx. 3- 31/2 hrs. This is a perfect warm red for my blonde hair & blue eyes. This one has no shimmer, just a beautiful red creme. I've put this over my matte red lipsticks-- it brought my lips back to life. No noxious taste/smell-- thank you Revlon for reformulating your glosses & lipsticks w/o the …Read more

Beautiful dark red/ brown/plum w/ slight gold shimmer. No obvious noxious smell/ taste. I like the strong color saturation of this formula. It has a soft sheen and the staying power is above average. Typical sponge applicator in a long, narrow tube w/ matte black cap-- looks elegant. Have this in a few other colors. I would put this up to any of the he glosses. I don't think I'll …Read more
