Christian Siriano Victoria’s Secret Cosmetic Collection


Christian Siriano is a busy bee this Fall season. Upcoming is his Payless Shoe Collection, I know right? Christian and Payless? Plus the brand new Christian Siriano Victoria’s Secret Cosmetic Collection is now available online and in store. Busy, busy boy!

I headed in store to play around with the collection for myself because the Muse is all nosy and she needed to know how “fierce” this beauty collection was.

Click ahead for a peep at my initial thoughts!

This isn’t a massive collection but it does have a few pieces that are quite good. I will say it does surprise me that Christian is busy creating makeup collections but hey cool he’s putting himself out there. I’m unsure if this is LE but it does deserve to be mentioned that most special edition cosmetics collections from Victoria’s Secret are always quite good quality and I’m normally one for jumping on board to purchase. This time around I did skip as I wasn’t too particularly wow’ed by the offerings.

Here’s a few pics I took with my phone camera:


The packaging is quite nice as each item is featured in in a gold compact with the brush, kohl, and gloss having a golden theme as well. It’s all very elegant looking.

First off the Christian Siriano Silky Eye Shadow are actually the same texture and formula of the brand new revamped line of Victoria’s Secret Silky Eyeshadow. The shadow colors in Christian’s collection are all brand new shades aside from one which would be Gilded Fierce. This shade is available in both the VS makeup line and his line. So technically you’re paying a little bit more for packaging and new shades that are already pretty much offered from VS. These shadows are $12 where as the general catalog shades are $10.


Aside from the shadows the other item that did capture my interest was the Christian Siriano Kajal Eye Liner ($12). This is available in one shade, Eclipse, which is pretty much black. The liner is quite a chunky size and perfect for creating a smudged, smoky effect.


Now the items that didn’t really tickle my interest were the Christian Siriano Bronzer/Highlighter Trio and the Christian Siriano All-Over Bronzing Powder Brush. Although both are reasonably priced at $16 and $18 I wasn’t really feeling bronze for Fall in all honesty. Even though I suspect Fall will rush in with a bit of an Indian Summer this year I still fail to feel the love for using bronzer in September through the rest of Fall.


And finally the Christian Siriano Lip Gloss ($12) is available in three shades. This too didn’t capture my interest as I wasn’t too into the shades. Shades range from a pale beige, nude pink, and red.


Overall, the collection is fairly inexpensive and rather fun if you’re a big fan of Chrisitan Siriano. As for me I wasn’t particularly inclined to pick up anything from the collection for myself and instead ended up with three shadows from the brand new, revamped Victoria’s Secret Makeup Collection. Dare I say the collection is a tiny bit boring perhaps? I’m not sure why I found it so unappealing but I ended up coming away with a sad sigh and a shrug.

Sorry Christian, you’re fierce darling but your makeup collection didn’t sit well with this Muse.

What do you think?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

Heading out right now to buy it?

Tell the Muse!

The collection is available now at www.victoriassecret.com and in store. They have some videos of the look and Christian speaking about the collection on VS’s site.

Beauty News: Victoria’s Secret Debuts New Makeup Collection

Call me a beauty junkie but I can’t help but be excited about the new line of Victoria’s Secret Makeup coming out in August. Most every Victoria’s Secret you’ve walked into lately probably has the same sign up as seen below.


Most of the line was hit with a 50-75% off sale during the semi-annual and in some cases even before that. This big discount was to make room for the new line do out in stores August. Of course, much of it will probably be the regular line up of blushes, shadows, and lip products however the excitement for me would be the reinvention of the packaging.

This is the second time that Victoria’s Secret is revamping it’s packaging. I admit that I long since missed the silver and pink standard from yesteryear and was never fully on board with the newer, chic black packaging. Out with the black and in with the new, this Muse hopes it’s a good one.

What do you think the new packaging will look like?

What do you want it to look like?

Hoping for something new to be added to the current selection?

Tell it!
