Sephora by OPI Disney Cinderella Nail Polish Collection: Sneak Peak

 Santa was VERY kind to me this year. In addition to getting me the Sephora In the Glow blush/bronzer/highlighter sample kit, he also left these goodies under the Christmas tree. A few months ago Sephora came out with a Cinderella Collection and the packaging was lovely and the products were drool-worthy but...I couldn't justify buying something so extravagant (by a college student's standards) for myself when Christmas was just around the corner.

Michael Kors Very Hollywood Perfume Review

I can't believe I first got this scent almost three years ago. It was my first Michael Kors product and it was also my first designer perfume. This is my second bottle now but I still love it. And it makes sense that this is the perfume I chose to feature in my first, semi-official perfume review! Although I suck at describing scents so I don't know why I'm doing this but here I go! [Too many exclamation points? I'm sorry. *bows head in shame*]

According to the Michael Kors website, Very Hollywood draws people in "with shimmering jewels of mandarin and iced bergamot. Scene-stealing gardenia follows suit with a decadent performance of award-worthy glamour." I can smell the mandarin a bit but it isn't too strong--honestly I didn't even notice it until I was writing this review. But it makes sense because I'm naturally drawn towards citrus smells.

Here is an up close look at what the top looks like. I think the packaging is so cool with this perfume. The pink and gold coloring make it super girly and fun while the geometric bottle makes it seem modern at the same time. The bottle feels heavy and expensive.

I think this smell is a slightly more mature than many of the other perfumes I own. It isn't terribly sweet but the first thing I notice is that smells quite floral to me. It is a bit musky but I like that. It isn't too terribly in your face, it's more subtle than that which is partially why I think it is a more mature scent. It doesn't smell old lady--I'm nineteen and I don't think that I would wear anything that smelt old but it isn't sugary-sweet perfume that I was drawn to in my early teens. I've grown up a bit. I would recommend it--obviously this is my second bottle--but I know that perfume is a very personal choice. It says a lot about the person who wears it, so please go check this scent out at the perfume counter. I love it!
