When it comes to shopping for bras, and underwear, Victoria's Secret is usually the way to go-well, at least for me. So, it really puzzled me as to why I haven't yet explored their makeup offerings? Beats me, but the important thing is that I finally went for it. Although Victoria's Secret's beauty section contained loads of lovely items to choose from, I am one who loves lipsticks so, it was only natural that I headed straight to the lipstick display. While there, I decided on Victoria's Secret Perfect Lipstick in Wish ($13.00). Take a look!
Wish is a lovely soft, medium pink that contains very fine and small, golden shimmers. But, once the lipstick is applied to the lips, the shimmers aren't noticeable, at all. I also want to mention that along with the creamy finish of this lip color, you also get a lovely touch of sheen as well. Its so shiny that it appears as if a gloss was layered over it. So pretty!
The texture of this lipstick is amazing. It applied like a dream and felt super creamy and comfortable, on. I appreciate the addition of hydrating ingredients like Shea and Vitamin E, which help moisturize and condition my lips. Love! I do detect a soft, sweet vanilla scent to this lipstick. If fragrances aren't your thing, no worries, the scent dissipates rather quickly, once you apply it on the lips.
When it comes to lasting power, I find that it is not until hour 2-3 that I need to reapply again. It does not have the best lasting abilities for me but, I honestly don't mind reapplying again for the simple fact that I could layer on this lipstick numerous times a day, and my lips will never look or feel dry. The only quirk I had with this lipstick was that it settled into the lines on my lips, a bit. As for packaging, I really like the sleek, tube that houses the lipstick. Its the perfect size to carry around in your purse, when traveling.
Overall, I think wish is a lovely lipstick. The color is right up my alley and, I love how wearable it is. I think everyone can rock it. For me, wish is perfect on those days where I don't want to fuss too much with my makeup. When I favor a more natural look, wish is the lip color that I have been reaching for. This is a really nice everyday lipstick and, I am glad I came across it. I can't wait to try other shades of Victoria's Secret Perfect Lipsticks!
What do you all think of this lip color? Have any of you tried any of Victoria's Secret lipsticks?
