A few days ago…..let me lower my voice, don’t wanna anyone hearing this….a few days ago I said no to shimmer.
GASP! Try not to be alarmed I’m ok! I took one look at Victoria’s Secret Brilliantly Sexy Makeup Collection and walked away. Does anyone have some sort of prize or treat they can give me for being so mature? This is big!
No but seriously I actually did look at it and I even grabbed one of the little booklets they keep out next to new collections but I didn’t buy a single item. I dunno, I have a little too much shimmer in my life. As pretty as the collection was I believe it’s not LE and will be around for a while so I can always indulge later. They seem to be promoting it as simply something new that they are adding to the VS Makeup Collection so try not to be mislead into believing it’s some LE makeup you absolutely HAVE to get right away.
Moral of the story is, it is pretty brilliant looking but I skipped, yay me!
But you can check it after the jump if you’re curious!
- Victoria’s Secret Brilliant Shimmer Shadow ($10)
Loose powder pigments with a brilliant shimmer finish available in six shades. Don’t get fooled here because they display three of these in a special display but if you peep at the catalog display you’ll notice three more shades. $10 is very reasonable but as I said I REALLY do not need more shimmery shades of shadow in my life.
- Victoria’s Secret Brilliant Glitter Liquid ($10)
Available in four shades and again very reasonably priced if you’re not wanting to splurge on say Urban Decay Heavy Metal these could be a cheap dupe up!
- Victoria’s Secret Lip Gloss ($10)
Two new shades which are Embrace (beige) and Intimate (pink)
- Victoria’s Secret Brilliant Shimmer All Over Powder ($14)
Two new shades in Candygirl (pink) and Star (gold)
For me it’s a bit more Holiday than Spring but hey I can’t complain when it comes right down to it as I’m a total junkie for shimmer. I just wasn’t feeling it though while I was in the store. Perhaps I’ll come back to it at a later date, we’ll see.
Worthy of haulage?
Not so much?
