VS Lip Gloss in Blush: Not Just Another Pink Lip Gloss

Hi everybody,

Although I love Victoria's Secret, I stopped buying their makeup after they changed the name to Very Sexy. I could not stand to use anything that urges me to be sexy. “Just let me be!” I said. And why a lot of other beauty bloggers professed their love to Very Sexy, I dutifully ignored. I guess Victoria's Secret took the cue, as I was not the only one who did not shell out the pretty pennies. Recently, they changed their in-store brand to VS. While the name sounds better than its predecessor, those who have keen eyes realize it’s the initial of Victoria's Secret (or Very Sexy.) So really, the name is more of the same to me.

VS Makeup mini lip gloss in "Blush"

However, after trying out their lip glosses, I realized VS makeup is up to something good. The mini lipgloss I got is Blush, a pink color that screams “my lips but better” to me. Since I came with a coupon, that mini lippie was free. The full size ones are $10 a pop, which is quite a bargain for a store brand.

 It's "my lips but better", y'all!

Unlike other lip glosses out there, VS glosses are either goopy or sticky. However, they are shiny and the lasting power is fine for glosses. The scent is sweet and reminds me that of MAC lip glasses. I particularly enjoy the sponge tip applicator, which is more slanted than in other lip glosses and similar to the ones in L’Oreal glosses. I hope VS makeup will come up with a pack of mini glosses soon as I love the little ones. For some strange reasons, I never get a chance to finish a full size lipgloss in my life and I hate to see things go to waste. With the minis, I may get an opportunity to finish it in my life. Also, they are easier to stash in bags.

If you are looking for a shiny lipgloss that does not feel goopy or sticky, the new VS glosses are for you. They are definitely a lot cheaper than the other department store glosses out there but the quality is good. Will I buy it? Definitely, but I’ll wait for the mini gloss set to come out first.
