Victoria's Secret Hot Pink Dazzleshine Lipgloss Review, Photos and Swatches!

Victoria's Secret Hot Pink Dazzleshine Lipgloss

Victoria's Secret Hot Pink Beauty Rush Dazzleshine Lipgloss 

It's always hard to resist those tempting bins they have strategically placed near the cash register, so you can rack up your total while anxiously waiting in line. After talking myself out of unnecessary purchases and patting myself on the back for my awesome will-power, I always manage to sucker myself into something glittery I don't need, in those very bins. My recent trip to Victoria's Secret was no exception. 

I'm not sure how new these glosses are to the Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush line, but I believe they are one of their newest additions.

Victoria's Secret Dazzleshine Lipglosses are available in six (6) dazzling shades: Wine, Hot Pink, Cherry, Nude, Opal Shimmer and Pink Rose.

I chose Hot Pink because I thought it would pair well with some of my fuschia lip colors. It's basically a very sheer bright pink filled with bright pink/purple glitter flecks. The glitters are very fine, so you don't feel the grit on your lips.

They retail for $7 each, or you can purchase 2/$12 ($6 each) or 4/$20 ($5 each).

I actually expected them to be squeeze tubes by the looks of it, but they actually have a doe-foot lipgloss wand. That can be a good, or bad thing depending on your preference. For a cream formula gloss, I like a doe-foot. But, for a clear, glittery gloss, I prefer a brush applicator - kind of like MAC Dazzleglasses. They seem to apply a little more product to the lips.

They all have different scents, ranging from citrus to "dazzling daiquiri". Hot Pink has the dazzling daiquiri scent - It smells like a sweet rum, but faints once on the lips. I'm not big on scented glosses, and kinda wished it would be scent-free, but I guess we can't win them all, right?

Heidi Klum for Victoria's Secret Makeup.

You can view the whole collection here Has anyone tried any of the products? The Eyeshadow palette looked gorgeous and I swatched the colors and they were pigmented and true to color.. but I figured I didn't need it and I have all the colors.. but it is soo tempting because it looks so pretty. lol 

I did buy the Heidi Klum Luminous Face Powder Gems. They looked pretty irresistible and it was $22 which didn't seem too bad.


Product Description: Illuminating powder spheres brighten and balance for a sultry, jewel-like glow. For an even blend of radiance, swirl your brush over the powder gems in a circular motion. Lightly tap to remove excess, then apply all-over face, building color on cheeks if desired. I've only used the gems today.. and so far I really like the color. I used it with a lot of the darkest pink gems and the color really suits my skin tone. I'll have a review for this soon. :)

I also picked up the Very Voluptuous® Lip Plumper Extreme. 


Its clear, but the brush is discolored from my lipsticks The regular non extreme lip plumper costs $18 and the extreme costs a whopping $26. The EXTREME label tempted me.. but I don't really think there is anything extreme about it. I'm pretty disappointed with it. I love lip plumpers and the burning or tingling feeling it gives your lips. This one in particular has no tingle or cooling minty effect. It just burns a little.. as if I wiped my lips with cayenne pepper. It turns them slightly red but it didn't irritate them or really make them appear fuller. sad. *sigh* I guess a pro can be that it is pretty moisturizing? lol I should of just stuck with the regular one.. I know lots of people love it. I may end up trying it in the near future.
