I blogged about the release of them & was skeptical about them. How artificial are the scents going to be ? How long will the scent even last ? Is the scent very strong & noticeable ?
What Rimmel London Say :
I decided on getting only two just incase I wasn't fond of them etc. I chose.
I didn't use a top coat, for the simple fact, I think it may disguise the smell. It does say that it is chip resistant. Yet when I purchased it last Tuesday & by Thursday morning it was chipping off like crazy. I don't know if that's due to the fact of hot baths & looking after animals all day *thinks*
I have to say it does try very fast so there's a pro. I only need to use two coats, I've found one isn't enough as it still can be quite streaky, that might just be me.
I don't think the smell's are meant to represent fresh fruit, but more of a sweetie type fruit. That's what I've got from the smell.
The Strawberry Fizz is not as strong as the Apricot Punch. The Apricot Punch I find I can smell a lot more than the Strawberry Fizz.
I wouldn't say they are very plastic smelling but if your not fond of the smell your not going to be able to stomach it for long.
When I was wearing the Strawberry Fizz last week I noticed that the smell did begin to fade but it wasn't a strong smell to start off with so I'd have to see how the Apricot Punch fairs up .
Would I buy again : Yes most definitely, I may just get the rest of the shades.
Don't forget that if you are a Facebook fiend you can find DolceVanity HERE - great way to communicate !!
