Funnily enough, following on from my review yesterday, this is also a product sent to me by the lovely Megan, aka EasyAccessBeauty on YouTube. It is the Victoria’s Secret Sparkling Lipstick in Adorned.
Now, I have a rather amusing confession to make (which will also make me sound a bit dim) – when Megan first sent me the lipstick, I didn’t realise that Victoria’s Secret had a make up line. Therefore, I spend the next two weeks telling my make-up-interested friends about my new ‘VS’ lipstick (funnily enough, they’d never heard of the brand). It was only when I inspected the box that I saw the ‘Victoria’s Secret’ writing along the side…what an idiot.
So, to the product itself! I was obsessed with wearing this lipstick on nights out when I first got it, and still like to wear it every now and then. It is very sheer – the pink colour is nowhere near as vibrant as it looks in the tube, and there is actually more glitter running through the lipstick than you’d think, too.
Saying this, however, I’m not sure that’s a bad thing. If the pink colour was more pigmented, the lipstick might look like it belonged in a child’s dressing up set rather than a 20 year-old’s make up box. I think there is a nice balance, and it is perfect for those nights out when you’re feeling a little, well, glittery!
I haven’t tried any other Victoria’s Secret products – any to recommend?
