Remember When Victoria’s Secret Had Cool Makeup and Don’t You Miss It?

Victoria's Secret Midnight Glamour Luminous Highlighting Powder 8

I was skipping through Victoria’s Secret yesterday searching out ahem gifts for myself during Black Friday/Cyber Monday and when I reached the beauty section I had a bad case of nostalgy for the cool, limited edition Victoria’s Secret Makeup Collections from the past.

Remember the seasonal Victoria’s Secret Makeup Collections? Don’t you miss them?

I know I do!

Sniff!

Victoria's Secret The Nakeds Eye Palette 14

Who remembers the Victoria’s Secret The Nakeds Eye Palette? Who remembers when Urban Decay sued Victoria’s Secret because they had trademarked the “Naked” name? Ahhhh good times. Whatever happened in that lawsuit hmmm! Someone Google that.

Victoria's Secret Hypnotic Beauty Luminous Blush Highlighter  008

You might remember it but I do! The Victoria’s Secret Hypnotic Beauty Luminous Blush Highlighter was quite a stunning little number! Seeing it now, most people probably wouldn’t even guess that it was a Victoria’s Secret release.

Victoria's Secret Love Me Wild Radiant Face Trio 6

How about the Victoria’s Secret Love Me Wild Radiant Face Trio that looked a little Too Faced Cosmetics-like in nature, yes?

Victoria's Secret Bombshell Beauty 21000

In 2010, these darling Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Beauty Powder launched!

Victoria's Secret Love Spell Perfume

It’s not makeup but most people probably forgot by now that Love Spell was once a perfume! GASP!

Victoria's Secret Angel Holiday 2013 Collection

The Victoria’s Secret Angel Holiday 2013 Collection had some of the most gorgeous packaging!

Victoria's Secret Ciao, Bombshell! Summer 2013

And the Summer of 2013, when the Victoria’s Secret Ciao, Bombshell! Summer 2013 Collection launched with bronze-y goodness for all!

Victoria's Secret Midnight Glamour Luminous Highlighting Powder 7

Need to say the Victoria’s Secret Midnight Glamour Luminous Highlighting Powder was another pick that did NOT look like it came from Victoria’s Secret!

Sigh! I sure do miss Victoria’s Secret Makeup! I’ll be the first to admit the quality was hit or miss but the packaging and design was really outstanding. I still have many of these items in my collection as one day, when I’m like 90, I’ll pull them out and tell my grand kids about that time that Victoria’s Secret Makeup was a thing.

Do you miss the Victoria’s Secret Makeup Collections?

Do you have any hiding away in your stash?

Do share!

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.

    YES!!! And they always had sleeper hits! I rarely visit that store nowadays. Too many perfumes clogging up my nose and not enough makeup lol

    • Isabella Muse

      right? It was hit and miss but when they did it right, they did it RIGHT!

  • Madison

    They discontinued the lip glosses and body sprays that I and everyone else would put on after gym in school and it broke my heart. I still think about that Cupquake scent and the Slice of Heaven lip gloss to match Even if they’d bring it back for a limited time, I’d stock up in the name of nostalgia.

  • Tiffany

    They had nail polishes too, the fastest drying I have ever used. I have one pedicure left on my very last bottle. I’m saving it for the week of christmas so I can console myself with the julep sale.

  • Kimmwc03

    Yes, I miss them. I think I still have a blush or two in my collection. I bought a liquid lipstick there recently and it was pretty good.

  • Allie

    I miss it. I still have a lipstick. I loved looking at it all. Now all they got is lip gloss and that is my least favorite makeup product.

  • Lauren

    The made the best lip balm. It was this lovely translucent pink color and was sooooo plush and moisturizing. I’m on my last backup tube 🙁

  • yelena

    yes! what the hell VS? I still have one of their blushes. I loved their eyeshadow primer, I wish I had bought backups! they also had a really nice foundation that was almost like a bb crème with enough coverage that looked natural and flawless. I wish they wud bring back their makeup!

  • Silvia

    I hate Victoria’s Secret makeup with a passion! Lol! I have as gift once lip gloss and a gliterry dust to some friends and they were so bad. One complained about having left glitter all over her boyfriends car and the lipgloss was so sticky gross. Never been back there since! I buy drugstore and tons have resulted great but VS I’m staying away from. No perfumes either they choke me. Ewwww!

  • Elaine

    I still have 2 setting powders and 2 primers left. I still haven’t found anything that will work for me. There last sell I bought everything they had left in store. I just opened up #3 they last 3 months if I use every day. I miss there make up a lot. Oh well some day I will find new favorites of each. The hunt is still on………

  • Misty Davis

    Yes! They had a great lip gloss, French Kiss. It was beautiful shimmery nude…sigh..

    I loved their makeup too! I actually think they have almost completely fallen off lately. Except for bralettes cuz I have like no boobs so I don’t want support I don’t need. It’s nice they offer a lot of those now. But everything else is just meh these days.
