Guilty Pleasure - and one of my most repurchased items - Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush glosses
I've been meaning to blog about these for the longest time - but didn't want to until I'd stocked up. Selfish cow - I know.
Victoria's Secret - they of the tres expensive yet tres tres comfortable bras - do a tight selection of beauty/cosmetics - it's what you'd expect - extremely sweet perfumes (some of which I also secretly love), body products, the basic makeup range and lip glosses. Oh the lip glosses. I have been in love with these glosses for years. Years. The picture above shows the repackaged version of my favourite range - they are now called Beauty Rush and come in 26 shades. 26! We don't get that many in the UK - but you lucky US dwellers will.
They are the exact colour that you see, the ones I buy have no shimmer - but they are available in differing depths of pigment and with shimmer if that's your thing. The applicator is the tube itself - perfectly slanted with a small opening so you don't drown in gloss with one slight push. They are flavoured/smelly - almost like cotton candy. I love that though.
If I had to take one lip gloss to a desert island - it would be Candy,Baby - which in the picture above is book-ending the other two: Yummy Berry and Citrus Kissed. The absolute perfect pink. For me. If you want really sophisticated formulas and a fashion designer's name on your products - these may not be for you. I love a swanky lip gloss as much as the next girl - but for all day/everyday use? These win every time.
And the best part: these are 4 for £20.00. Annoyingly they are also 4 for $20.00 - which tells you everything you need to know about rip-off Britain and why I take an empty suitcase when I go to the US.
