Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss
I’m a girl that loves Victoria Secret and therefore spends a lot of time (and money) in their store. Every time I go there I look at the stand by the counter at all the lip glosses but never buy any. Well this time I decided to give it a try and bought 3 different flavors of the BEAUTY RUSH Flavored Gloss. You can buy 1 for $10.00 or Special 2/$15.00 or 4/$20.00.
The first gloss that I tried was the Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss Citrus Kissed. It smells like orange creme but its not too loud which is a plus for anyone who doesn’t like loud smells. Though the color is of a peach tone it applies clear…this is a pro or con depending your personal choice, not everyone wants peach colored lips, some just want lip gloss. I personally am disappointed that it didn’t even have a tint to it when I applied it.
The second one I tried was Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss Candy Baby. This gloss is a more of a pink blush tone and smells great. It has a friendly smell that is best described as cotton candy. I love this one compared to the citrus kissed but still disappointed that it does not have that tint to it. I got even more disappointed when I really examined the bottle and realized that it says “flavored gloss”. Under no circumstances is it flavored in taste, I think that instead of putting flavored gloss they should have put flavor “SCENTED” gloss.
The last gloss I tried was the Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss Mocktail Hour. This one seems to have a bronze tone to it with glitter. Because of that I would not say that it is working gal approved but more fun night out (mocktail hour makes perfect sense). It has more of a grapefruit smell which I enjoy but not as much as the candy baby. I do think that it beat out the citrus kiss!
One of the cons of Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss is that it is very sticky! How many of us has had lip gloss that was so sticky our hair got stuck to it? That has to be one of the most annoying things in the universe. When something is that sticky you automatically assume that it is heavy on your lips. However, with all the gloss’s stickiness, it is not as heavy as I thought that it was going to be. they all applied well and I didn’t feel like I needed remove it immediately after applying it. I applied the gloss during my morning face regimen because I wanted to see how well it lasts. We have all had glosses that disappear in less then an hour so I wanted to see if this gloss holds up throughout the day. Well an hour after applying it, The shine disappeared and just left the stickiness behind for my enjoyment (insert sarcasm here).
Overall, the glosses are a bit of an disappoint for this well known brand. I was expecting an actual taste to the gloss and maybe not as sticky as it was. Though the smells were good, I feel that is where the enjoyment stops. It needs a few things worked out including long lasting and less sticky.
