I recently had the opportunity to try out Beyonce's newest fragrance Rise, and according to her, “The spirit of Rise encourages women to be all that we are.”
Rise is definitely not a light, fruity scent. It screams sophisticated and intense, and personally for me, one which I would wear for a night out. I am more of a light and sweet fragrance girl - along the lines of Marc Jacobs' Honey.
When you first wear Rise, you will be hit with notes of Italian Bergamot, Golden Apricot and Iced Basil Sorbet. As the perfume settles in, you will discover the main notes to be a blend of Gold Symphony Orchid, Freesia Blossom and Natural Jasmine Sambac. Rounding up the fragrance at the base are Autumn Woods Accord, Cashmere Musk and Vetiver.
I found the wear time of Rise to be rather short, averaging around 3-4 hours.
My nails were inspired by the simple, but beautiful packaging of the perfume. I loved the black and gold combination and just had to match my nails to it :P
Pinky: Two coats of OPI My favorite ornament, sans top coat. The gritty finish gave a nice twist to the overall manicure.
Ring: Two coats of Ulta3 Black satin, layered with Glitter Gal Galaxy holo top coat.
Middle: Two coats of Helly Kitty Golden girl.
Index & thumb: Two coats of Black satin with a sponged gold tip using Golden girl.
And here is a sun photo so show off the holo on my ring finger :)
Thanks for reading!
