Victoria’s Secret Summer Collection 2009: Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Lip & Cheek Pop Review and Swatches

I know, I know you’re probably a bit tired of all my ravings about Victoria’s Secret Pool Party Collection already. I’m sowrry but I can’t help myself I’m really enjoying this collection!

I promise this is my last review! Today I’ll be giving you some brief deets about the brand new Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Lip and Cheek Pop plus a few swatches thrown in for good measure.

Ok, first off, prior to my review, I need to tell you to go out and grab these now. If you’re yearning for ‘em don’t wait as they are completely sold out on the website and many Victoria’s Secret stores I’ve passed by have maybe one color at the most. So hurry, hurry! Get ‘em fast!

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Lip and Cheek Pop are basically packaged in a deodorant style, swivel up tube. Just swirl the dial and the stick slides upwards for application. Swipe across cheeks or lips and you’re done. You’ll get a very subtle pinch of color that’s quite pretty. One of the novel things about these cute little blushes is the fact that they are cooling on your skin. As you apply you’ll feel a burst of coolness on your cheeks which is rather refreshing, too cutes!


The Cheek Pops come in three shades which are Peach Pop (coral, orange combo), Berry Cooler (fuchsia), and Pink Splash (pink). The sticks are pretty budget friendly as they are three for $15 USD. If you prefer your blush a bit darker you may need to swipe two or three times for decent color payoff or just once for a very sheer layer. I was pleasantly surprised at how long the color lasts. I started my day off with it on in the AM and was delighted when my sister said, “Oh it’s still wearing well..!” at around 5 PM that same day. I do think they look way better on cheeks than lips.


The only minor rant I have is the top is a clear plastic top so it kinda looks like I lost the cap on these. They look a bit unfinished if that makes sense. It seems they ran out of cash to get a proper lid on these LOL! Aside from that I generally liked these and thought they were a rather great beauty budget find.

Crummy Lid!

Definitely head in store to try ‘em out as testers are available. Overall, for the price you can’t go wrong. A rather cute little budget friendly option for natural, fresh Summer makeup! Loves it!

Sportin’ Berry Cooler on lips and cheeks minus foundation with a touch of gloss on top of the stain!

Anyone haul these?

Loving ‘em?

Want It: Sonia Kashuk Sheer Magic Mineral Face Palette

Can I tell you that I had Sonia Kashuk Sheer Magic Mineral Face Palette in my cart during my last trip to Target but I kept taking it out and putting it back, taking it out and putting it back.

Sonia+Kashuk+Sheer+Magic+Mineral+Face+Palette

Needless to say I left the store without the bloody thing because I’m so bleeding indecisive.

That’s where you come into play…help a Muse out….

There isn’t any question I seriously want this little wonder palette. Is palette even the proper term to use? It’s basically a stackable set of mineral foundation, mineral blush, and a creamy concealer. There isn’t any palette here but hey whatever Sonia wants to name it is fine and dandy by this Muse!

It’s only $14.99 but my cart was loaded down and that extra $15 bucks for something that may or may not be good was kinda making me worry my bottom lip and bite my finger nails deciding did I really need mineral foundation in my life? Especially considering we don’t get along so well and all. The choice was turning into should we impeach Nixon or not. It was life altering that much I’ll tell you.

So the question is, do I need Sonia Kashuk Sheer Magic Mineral Face Palette in my life or is it something I can safely skip?

I’ll be honest and say the choice has kept me up at night for the better part of the week and I’m having a bad case of non buyer’s remorse and wishing I had indulged.

It’s so damn hard being the Muse sometimes.

Sigh.

Want It: Vaseline Rosy Lips

Sometimes my lems are big sometimes they are small. At the moment they are a teeny tiny size of under 2. What a steal!

rosy+lips

Check it after the jump!

Vaseline makes a comeback in the UK with an amp’ed up version of simple everyday petroleum jelly with a hint of color. Yes, yes we all know my love affair with Smith’s but let me tell you Smith’s costs a whole heap of alot more than 1.49.

Available at Boots and Superdrug Vaseline Rosy Lips is pretty much the same concept of my beloved Smith’s but with a glossier, smoother finish and a heck of alot more pigment from the reviews I’ve heard around the town. Hey, DollFace has my favorite review of this tiny tin of joy!

Yes, I think I need more Vaseline in my life, particularly if it’s rosy in color.

If you wants it you’ll have to put your head together and do a little Sherlock Holmes searchin’ as it’s only available in the UK from what I’ve seen.

Want!

Musings of the Day: Summer Collection Lovin’

tag pink

So which Summer Collections are you loving at the moment chicas?

Spill it and click below to hear what I am lovin’ at the moment!

My current favs are Clarins Instant Light Collection, so gorg! And also, little late to the ballgame, Guerlain Terracotta Collection. Guerlain Terracotta has a whole lot of bronzing going on and normally I’d probably avoid that much tanning goodness but I fell in love with the Guerlain Terracotta Blush and Sun and haven’t looked back since. I’m working my way through buying a majority of this collection as truly it’s gorgeous!

Although it’s not out as of yet I’m really also looking forward to MAC Colour Forums, particularly all those MSF, NEED, WANT, GIVE THEM TO ME!

How about you?

What are your fav Summer Cosmetic Collections?

Do share!
