Victoria’s Secret Sheer Drama Hydrating Lipstick Review & Swatches

Victoria's Secret Sheer Drama Hydrating Lipstick Summer 2013

Have you met the new Victoria’s Secret Sheer Drama Hydrating Lipstick launched with the new VS In Paradise Summer 2013 Collection? If not I urge you to head in store and swatch these gorgeous little lipsticks and I’ll guarantee you’ll fall in love.

Victoria's Secret Sheer Drama Hydrating Lipsticks

Take a look!

My obsession with sheer, balm-like lipstick continues and the new Victoria’s Secret Sheer Drama Hydrating Lipstick ($14) fits the bill! These are great! They should an entire collection of colors.

At the moment they offer them in three shades which are:
Thrill Me
Can’t Wait

Victoria's Secret Sheer Drama Hydrating Lipstick Swatches

Can’t Wait, Entice, Thrill Me

They come in a solid black tube with a pedestal-like bottom done in metallic pink. Just a note but I had issues swiveling one shade down. Could be a fluke but I suggest you check it out before purchasing and make sure you can swivel the lipstick up and down before a purchase. Nothing gets on my nerve more than a faulty lipstick.

The formula here is similar to Maybelline Color Whispers with about the same color pay off but with a balmy texture. I’d say they are a step above your standard run of the mill tinted lip balm. They have a moisturizing feel with a balmy texture that feels quite comfortably soft on lips. They apply like a butter and leave behind fairly nice color that’s on the borderline of being sheer yet opaque enough that your true lip color won’t show through. They have a high sheen finish and a slight vanilla taste and scent.

I love how natural they look on my lips and how comfortable they wear providing moisture so my lips feel soft and smooth through the wear. Doesn’t hurt that the colors are very pretty too so I get the benefits of a moisturizing lip balm slash lip butter slash lipstick AND color too!

They wear about three hours and fade into hour four without eating or drinking.

If you like sheerer, buttery lipsticks I’m positive you’ll adore these.

Muse Approved.

Try them!

They aren’t to be missed!

P.S. Love Spell EDP is on sale during the Semi-Annual. I got two more bottles for $16 each (originally $35 something per bottle). NICE score πŸ™‚


I purchased this item.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I was just looking for swatches of these. I saw them in the store and thought of your blog, haha. Thanks! πŸ™‚

    I bought a bottle on sale of the Love Spell too!!! There’s a neat trick where Victoria Secret will honor the lower price if it gets further discounted within 14 days of purchase… even during the Semi Annual Sale! So if the beauty items drop to 75% off, you can go back with your receipt and get the difference back. I do it every sale when they further discount the prices for lingerie too.

    Unfortunately, my VS did not have testers so thanks for the swatches.

    I got a Pure Seduction EDP on sale. It wasn’t there the first time I went in to look for sale stuff but it was out in plain sight the next I went to the store.

    oooh pretty! my current VS lippie is: Victoria Secret Color Drama Lipstick (Pulse)

  • Cindy Ramirez

    Can’t wait is really pretty! These look right up my alley for summer, I skip lipstick and just go for sheer lightweight stuff. :]

  • Sade

    Just purchased entice and love it! Im a teacher and this is the perfect lipstick/balm/butter for your money! Thanks VS!

  • Kirstie

    I’ve been looking for a dupe for this lipstick ever since VS makeup got discontinued. πŸ™ Entice is the perfect my lips but better shade for me and it’s HG!! I can’t find anything that comes even close to the shade, or the texture of these lipsticks! Can you please please compare Entice to some of your other lipstick and tell me if you have anything that’s close to the color and/or texture?? Thank you so much girl! πŸ™‚
