Victoria’s Secret Color Shine Lip Gloss Reviews
How was your weekend? Mine was quite happening as I got to witness a nice conference on Saturday followed by a royal dinner party. And today I’m in complete mood of relaxing at home and reading a nice novel and pen down product reviews for you beauties.
Today I will be reviewing a cosmetic product from Victoria’s Secret. I love Victoria’s Secret mists but I also like its cosmetic range. I am reviewing a lip gloss here. I am undoubtedly a lip stick lover but not much of a lip gloss lover, though I own a lot of cute looking lip glosses.
Shine and Sparkle with this Victoria’s Secret lip gloss. Steal the spotlight. This is a must-have lip gloss. It has intense color and incredible shine. It’s a grab-and-go makeup essential in your makeup kit.
Product price and quantity:
Around $6 for 2.8g
Sheer translucent color with shimmer
This lip gloss comes in a long glass wand with signature Victoria’s secret stripes design on it. It has a metallic finish screw cap and the glass wand is sturdy and travel safe. The packaging is attractive and elegant.
The lip gloss has a fine creamy texture. The consistency is a little thick. This gloss is sparkly and contains shimmer particles which are not tiny enough and therefore its presence can be felt on the lips. It gives a sheer sparkly finish to lips.

Cons of Victoria’s secret Color Shine Lip Gloss:

- Won’t go well for naturally pigmented lips

- Feels quite heavy and sticky on lips
My experience with Victoria’s Secret Color Shine Lip Gloss:
I like the packaging. It’s unique and trendy. 12 shades of this lip gloss are available of which others give a tint of color to your lips. I choose to buy the nude variant of this one which is called enchanted.
The tip applicator of the gloss is of high quality and design. It helps in even application of the gloss. The gloss has a pleasant vanilla like smell which lingers on for around 5-10 minutes after application. It gives a nice shiny look when applied over lipsticks. This is an everyday wear shade, and you can also wear it on bare lips. I prefer wearing it on no-makeup look.
The stay power is quite decent. Multiple applications form a thick layer of gloss which feels sticky. I have slightly dark lips and therefore applying it on bare lips further enhances my naturally pigmented lips which I don’t like.
Overall, it’s an average gloss and don’t expect much from it.
I will rate it 6 out of 10
Will I recommend it again?
Not really. I find it a little pricey and there are a lot of other sheer glosses available in the market for a very competitive price.
