When I first heard that Lady Gaga was designing and creating a perfume I had no intention what so ever to buy it. We all that Lady Gaga's fashion is crazy and outgoing so I just thought that the perfume would not be something I would like. While passing it at the Macy's counter my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to test it out.
My favorite thing about this perfume is the packaging. It has this vampy, ferocity sort of look to it. Which I think is totally Lady Gaga. The slick black bottle with the shiny gold cap is very sexy and has that classic Lady Gaga edgy look to it. The most exciting feautrue to this perfum is, of course, the black liquid. Being Lady Gaga, she had to do something totally unique and never done before. And this has definitely never been done before. It does spray clear though once it its the air. You do have to be careful if you have a white shirt on, it will leave this sort of grayish tint to it (something I had to experience ): ).
When first creating the smell of this perfume, Lady Gaga stated that she wanted something to smell of blood and semen. Although, late she said that it would smell of something like an "expensive hooker." I dont really think there is such a thing as an expensive hooker though, and this perfume smelled nothing like that. When you first spray it on it had this sweet smell to it. Although, once it really settled into your skin it had more of a musky with spice smell. Its intoxicating and floral, yet still a bit fruity all at the smae time. The main notes in Lady Gaga Fame are apricots, honey, and some more floral smell. I loved the jasmine part of this perfume. It was sweet but mixed with the honey and apricots defiantly gave it a little extra kick.

Even though I'm not really into the whole celebrity perfumes, this is one of those rare perfumes that are really worth the money. Its unique and perfect for everyday, but lasts long for those special occasions. While a lot of celebrity perfumes aim for teens, this one is something that can fit a lot of age groups. So, whether your are 30 or 15 this perfume is great!
I'm going to be honest and say that I really don't like any perfumes that are made by these "teen stars." I think that they don't take it seriously, because they know that they have a lot of fans that are willing to buy their perfume whether or not it smells good. So, at first I just kind of shrugged at Wonderstuck without really giving it a try.
After a while I noticed that everyone was buying this perfume. Weather they were 15 or 25. So, I thought to myself I should really smell it for myself and see what the hype is all about. When I went to the Macy's counter and sniffed it, you can imagine my shock when actually I was amazed. It had a sweet, floral, kind of girly smell to it. What really shocked me about this perfume though was that it didn't smell like a 14 year old's room. It felt appropriate for adults in their early 20's also.
Whats really great about this product its the price. It doesn't cost you over a $100 to buy. I only bought this perfume for about $50, and its definitely worth that price. It's not to overbearing, but it does have this fresh smell that's perfect for everyday use. Another plus to this perfume is that it lasts all day!
One of the things that really bothered me about this product was the cheesy packaging. I know that Taylor Swift is all glitter and unicorns, but its really not my thing. If she had a bit more sophisticated packaging and bottle then I'd probably be head over heels over this perfume.
If anyone took a look at my fragrance collection, the most used product in it is Beautiful by Estee Lauder. I discovered this product just a couple of years ago at Macy's counter. After smelling over 30 perfumes, the salesclerk gave me this to try. Right off the bat I was hooked with this smell. It was enchanting and something different. I have never really smelled anything like this.
Whenever I put on this perfume I get a compliment by every single person that is near me. All my friends are always saying how good I smell. It really boosts your confidence. When you first smell this product its has this musky romantic aroma to it. Its really something that you might imagine a queen or princess wearing. Whats amazing about this product is its ability to stay on all day! Even after I take a shower at night I can still smell it on me. It seem like it seeps into your skin, which is not a bad thing for this amazing perfume!
I absolutely love the packaging of this product. Its simple yet very sophisticated. The gold cap and this sort of yellowish liquid really make the bottle seem like it cost you hundreds of dollars. When really you will probably only spend about $80 for the full size bottle. Whether you want a fragrance for everyday, or if you have a romantic dinner with your guy this product is great.
After searching around in my local Ulta for a new foundation, I saw Maybelline's Fit Me Liquid Foundation. Right off the bat I loved the wide variety of different colors they had. From the palest pale to all the ladies with a deep rich skin tone. So, it was very easy for me to find my perfect skin tone match.
Another aspect that really caught my eye was the packaging. I never really liked the packaging on other Maybelline foundations, they just seemed very cheap looking. Although, if I had to choose a foundation just by its packaging, this would definitely be my first pick. It has a very sleek and simple design, which it made look very high end and professional.
I love how the product just glides onto you're skin. It gives a very medium but natural coverage. Although, you could add layers on top to make it full coverage if you have a lot of redness. It covered up all the veins on the side of my nostrils, and all the discoloration around my mouth, chin, and nose. It was a breeze to cover up blackheads on my nose and cheek area too. And no matter how much I build the product on my skin, it still didnt cake and my skin could breath!
One thing I learned when using this product, is it just makes you look very greasy in just a couple of hours. I found my self using more and more powder to cover up the unattractive oiliness around my t-zone. Later, I found out that this is an oil based foundation, which is a big no-no for already very oily skin. By the end of the day I just looked like I had rubbed grease on my face. After, just a couple of days of use my face really started breaking out in these huge zits. So, I would definitely not recommend this for anyone who has already naturally oily skin since it will just clog up you're pores and make you break out. It also really bothered me that it didnt have a pump, so i had to pour out and sometimes that just gets really messy, especially when you're in a rush in the morning to get to work or school.
Overall, I hope Maybelline comes out with a Fit Me foundation for oily skin, because this product was just perfect in covering up all my imperfections.
