Victoria’s Secret Spring Makeup Collection 2010: Victoria’s Secret Limited Edition Spring Lip Gloss Review

‘ello, ‘ello!

Anyone check out the Victoria’s Secret Safari Makeup Collection yet? It has some seriously nice pieces! Lucky enough, yours truly somehow resisted its evil allure and only ended up with a single little little gloss plus I paid .81 cents for it ha!

Jump ahead to read the review.

As much as I wanted to haul just about everything from this collection, I had a serious case of beauty conscious and proceeded to tell myself how I so didn’t know it all.

So…………..

I had a $10 coupon card thingy and proceeded to just get a gloss from the collection as I felt like the gloss was a rather nice shade. Set me back a mere .81 cents, nice right?

What is it?

A limited edition shimmering lipgloss and a golden beige shade with an SPF 15.

The Good….

Its a nice gloss for Summer which is why I snagged it plus its a nice shade of shimmering golden beige which will compliment some nice bronze-y looks that I’ll create when the warmer weather finally arrives. The formula has a nice high sheen, a tasty orange-y flavor, and plenty of shimmer to keep me happy. Nothing to get crazed about really as its your standard VS lipgloss but the shade is quite nice and worth a haul even at the retail price of $10 bucks.

The Bad….

Doesn’t wear particularly long.

Who might like it?

  • Anyone looking for a golden beige gloss to pair up with bronze-y cheeks and eyes!
  • Anyone who loves Victoria’s Secret LE Makeup Collections (the packaging is quite nice with a gold lame on the tube).

Who might not like it?

  • Anyone wanting a long wearing lip gloss!

Final Thoughts…..

The shade is unique enough to warrant a haul in my opinion plus its quite affordable to indulge however if you’re wanting a long wear you’ll probably want to avoid as it slips away within an hour or two.

Quite nice and worth checking out at your local VS. I liked the shade alot which is why I grabbed it up plus that $10 coupon helped make it even more tempting.

I know you explored the collection already! Bet ya made a made dash to VS recently after I posted about the collection.

What did you haul?

Anything appeal?

    Hey Muse! Love the new site 🙂 I’ve always been a little disappointed with Victoria’s secret makeup. But this gloss does look very pretty. I may just have to give it a shot. Im such a gloss junkie 🙂

    I tried this too- I LOVE the color just like you, but I couldn’t handle how easy it wore off. It was like I licked my lips and there it went, lol.
