    Depending on the context, formative would work (as in, it was an extremely formative experience).

    I wouldn't use the phrase at all, it is pretty overblown unless the experience was huge.

    And it was a dildo attached to a mechanical panty you lock onto yourself before the product functions. And it happens to have rusted, the device won't stop, she couldn't take it off, and was forced to uh... wait until the battery ran out.

    There. Life changing. Being reborn.

    OP write a sentence about what you are talking about, and maybe we can help you format it to say what you mean.

    Life is a noun, not an adjective (in that context anyway). It's difficult to play around with without changing the meaning significantly, but there's no need to change it in that instance. I'm pretty sure it won't sound stupid. It's just another overblown, unwritten PS rule. Perhaps if you gave the full sentence it might help more? Actually, don't do that- might get plagiarised!
