Victoria’s Secret Love Me Wild Beauty Rush Baked Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Victoria’s Secret has three new shades of their Beauty Rush Baked Eyeshadow available that was released with the Love Me Wild Spring 2011 Collection.

I generally like these little shadows as I’ve tried and loved them before but I think I grew out of them a bit as I got frustrated with the frosty finish on many of them and also the flaky fall out so its been a while since I indulged.

The new shades were pretty damn tempting so I picked up all three!

Take a look!

Three new shades of Beauty Rush Baked Eyeshadow for Spring 2011!

If you tried and know Beauty Rush Baked Eyeshadow and have had frustrating experiences with them in a past I do urge you to try these shades as the formula has very little fall out without a frosty finish a la some of the other shades in the standard catalog. I felt like the shades applied like liquid metal and left behind a really brilliant shimmery finish without being too overly done and plenty of pigmentation to back them up.

The new shades include Pink Sand, Glow Gold, and Green Goddess. I will throw it out there and say Glow Gold was not impressive and had a very frosty finish with a ton of fall out (this is a creamy shade of gold) but Pink Sand and Green Goddess sported a very smooth formula sans the frosty finish and the fall out.

Green Goddess was impressive particularly for those with love a gorgeous shade of olive green. The shade is a brilliant hue of olive that really makes brown eyes pop. I’m not really sure what I would dub Pink Sand as it has a certain pinkness but also a but of purple and brown to it, the shade is equally as pretty and quite unusual and unique, you might not have any shades like this in your stash.

Nothing to not like here unless, of course, you pick up Glow Gold which was a tad disappointing!

  • Those seeking a brilliant hue of olive green on the cheap!
  • Those looking for vibrant, popping shades of color for Spring and Summer wearin’!
  • Beauty Budget shoppers!

  • Those who prefer less bolder shades of shadow (some of these shades are quite loud).

Overall, I thought Pink Sands and Green Goddess proved must haves. The formula can be used wet or dry but applies just as brilliantly dry as it does wet with a liquid metal effect. Green Goddess stands out as a really gorgeous shade as does Pink Sands. The colors really made my eyes pop and will make a great pick for Summer eye looks plus love that 2 for $12 price tag (or 4 for $20).

Pick these up! You’ll love ’em but avoid Glow Gold, that one can be tossed back into the bin!

I’m wearing Laura Geller’s Real Deal Foundation that I reviewed earlier in both these photos.

Very Muse Approved!

Anyone haul these?

    I really love Green Goddess on you. It makes your eyes look HUGE! Have you tried using it wet as a liner? I think it would work, too!

    • the Muse

      aw thanks dao xoxox! I haven’t yet, but quite a good idea ;D!

  • Crissylex

    I love how pink sand looks on you. For some reason, it reminds me of blue brown pigment from MAC. Duochrome?? Green Goddess looks great on you as well. Very sensual….

    Pretty! These look similar to the Milani baked eyeshadows. I’ll be skipping them only because I have too much right now.

  • Mona
