Victoria's Secret Pink "In The Buff" Lipgloss Swatch + Review

VS PINK Lipgloss in "Buff It Up"
 I know its officially Fall, I know. But I can't seem to stop blogging about summer-esque products. Last week it was the gorgeous Sonia Kashuk blush in "Sunset", this week it's the fun and flirty lipgloss from Victoria's Secret Pink beauty line. And I know what a lot of you are thinking: Wait! What? Victoria's Secret Pink sells yoga pants and underwear, not beauty products. Well, I'm happy to be the bearer of great news but VS PINK has semi-recently introduced a line of lipglosses and nail polishes. So of course I had to pick up a few to review, right?

 Let me start this review by saying that I LOVE the packaging. It is young and fresh and clean. I adore the white packaging. I think it was an excellent choice. And, as I recently discovered, I'm a total sucker for white packaging. 

 To be honest, I was extremely hesitant when I bought this product. I'm not a big lipgloss person and I didn't have high hopes that a lipgloss from Victoria's Secret PINK would change that. But, after trying this product out for the last four weeks or so, I have to say that I'm a big fan. It isn't sticky. It gives a lovely wash of when worn on its own or when worn over a lipstick. It smells fruity and sweet. I think that the smell might be a little strong for people who are sensitive to scents but I love it!

Victoria's Secret did not revolutionize the lipgloss applicator. It's a simple, traditional doe-foot applicator. Which I personally prefer to lipgloss brushes.

Here is the lip gloss swatched on the back of my hand. It isn't a really opaque lipgloss but that might only be because the shade I bought is a very light pink color. I'm excited to try a few more shades to see if this is true for darker shades as well. One thing that is true about all of the shades from this range--they all contain super, chunky-monkey glitter. You can kind of see it in the first photo but you can really see it in the photo above. It's also super noticeable in the tube but it becomes a little less so when applied to the lips. But, am I'm speaking as someone who normally HATES super glittery makeup, I kind of dig it. So...yeah. Glitter!

-Sleek and youthful packaging
-Not sticky

-Price ($10)
-Can feel glitter chunks when lips are rubbed together
-Can only be found at VS PINK

In conclusion, VS PINK has converted me into a lip gloss lover. I don't wear it everyday but when I do, it's almost always this one. It's got a great formulation (non-sticky and smooth) and the color looks great over so many of my favorite lip products (I'm particularly loving wearing it with Benefit Bene-Tint and my Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in "Honey"). I'm going to be trying more shades in the future and if you are a lipgloss junkie, I highly recommend that you check out this range from VS PINK.
