YUM- SO YUM. Bravo, Juicy Couture, this is my favourite fragrance you've produced thus far. And the packaging? SO girly & over the top, I love it- I especially love the pink glitter ombre bottle. Viva La Juicy Rosé isn't anywhere near as sweet/gourmand as their past fragrances (no caramel notes this time round), given that the top and middle notes are predominantly floral and fruity. I'm not a fan of sickly sweet fragrance, which is why I love this so much. It smells like hugs- weird, but true, & it makes you feel happy, sparkly & fresh while you're wearing it. Even if you're not a sparkly kind of human, which I'm really not- this is gorgeous. A must-have for all Juicy fans.

Ohhhhhh, this is soooo good! The original Black Opium EDT was released in NZ last year, & has probably been the most written about and lusted after fragrance that I've seen in MUO- EVERYONE wanted it. This year, YSL are totally playing with us with the release of a new EDP, Black Opium Nuit Blanche. In my (humble) opinion, it's not as intense as the original, it's a little softer, a little fresher- think creamy as opposed to sugary. The vanilla drydown is strong with this one (which I love), & the coffee middle note is far more prominent. If you're looking for a fragrance that will make you feel like a goddess, one that commands attention, & has fantastic longevity- this is it. And the bottle is, as always, divine.

The above three fragrances are part of the Michael Kors Gold Collection, & I die over the sleek metallic packaging alone. I received the 24K Brilliant Gold, and it was the perfect one for my tastes! For your reference, the White Luminous Gold fragrance is fruity, with notes of pear, jasmine & amber, while the Rose Radiant Gold is spicy/woody musk. 24K Brilliant Gold is so creamy & gorgeous, I LOVE white floral scents- especially with notes of gardenia and orange blossom. It's one of those scents that is perfect for everyday use- not at all overpowering, and very feminine. It's very warm & comforting, & lasted a solid 6-7 hours on my skin- perfect!
- it makes your skin look glowing & radiant
- it reduces the appearance of fine lines & pores
- it is oil-free, & non-comedogenic
- it makes your foundation last alllllll day (or night)
- it evens out your skintone
- it contains hyaluronic acid (my FAVE) & botanical extracts to pamper your skin
- it helps to control shine thanks to the inclusion of silica beads
I mean- you can't ask for much more than that right? I don't actually use it all over my face, I stick to troublesome areas such as around my eyes, nose and chin, but you absolutely could use it all over if that's your vibe. it also makes your foundation glide on perfectly- SO GOOD!!! A contender for the MUO 2016 Beauty Awards, for SURE.
