Not your ordinary fragrance
Glitter, sugar, caramel, and vanilla in the same roll on tube may be a bit too much even for me. This is the Aquolina Pink sugar Roll On Shimmering Perfume. The scents of sugar, vanilla and caramel have been combined to form this roll on perfume that leaves behind a trail of shimmering sparkles with each roll. The sparkles are not obnoxious because they can be rubbed into your skin and doing that will produce a very light shimmering effect. You will not feel any grains of glitter because it is almost as if it has been crushed into a very fine glittery dust. I really don’t consider this product to be a perfume because the scent is so light and you absolutely do not have that strong scent of alcohol that I usually associate with perfumes. Also unlike many perfumes this product has a wonderful shelf life because I have had this product for well over a year, perhaps even two, the color has not changed and it smells the same as it did the day I first opened it. However, I would not make this $18 purchase again because of the ingredients which include a medley of parabens and aluminum. Also I use this product so infrequently I will probably still have a nearly full tube 4 years from now.
We know that makeup should be changed every 6 months but do you have any products that have an exceptionally long shelf life?
P.S. I finally received my ELF shipment yesterday so reviews are coming soon.
