Victoria Secret Lipsticks

PIC_0583This is my first experience with Victoria Secret lipsticks. I ordered 3, a sheer pink, a peach and a coral. It was tough to settle on these three but after consulting some swatches I decided these suited my requirements; a soft, medium and loud. Don’t ask why I felt the need or a loud lipstick when I am addicted to neutrals, I’m may be trying to change my ways.

Satin Sheets is the first in the picture. It’s very sheer, with little colour. It adds a lovely dimension to the lips when applied over other lipsticks. It also looks very pretty on bare lips for a soft pink sheen. This is one fo those lipsticks that will live in my handbag. Regardless of what lipstick I apply when I’m getting ready I always keep a go to lippie in my bag and I retouch with that. I think one makes lips look kissable.

Scrumptuous is a true peach. It’s much more pigmented than Satin Sheets. This is one of those lipsticks that will look great on most skintones. It’s quite a warm, fleshy shade. I notice on the show What Not to Wear that the make-up artist usually applies a peach shade on the women during the make-over; this is what this lipstick reminds me of. I applied it over concealed lips lined with MAC Buerre Liner and a dab of Love Nectar Lustre Glass. It looked quite glamorous but in a soft way. It made me look polished.

Cabana is a coral. It looks quite bright but has a semi sheer finish. It is absolutely gorgeous and bang on trend this season. Whether I have the guts to wear it is another issue!

Here are the swatches:
