VS Makeup: Color Drama Lipstick in Sinful and Lip Liner in Spice It Up Review & Swatches

Victoria's Secret is having a sale on their cosmetics right now! From my knowledge, I believe they are discontinuing their makeup line so I grabbed a few things I've always wanted to try from them before it was too late.

First is a pinky-nude lipstick and the other is a lip liner. There were a few other things I wanted to try but those had a more likely chance to end up in a box somewhere so I just didn't grab them.

The lipstick was $9.80 after the discount and the lip liner was $8.40. I'd say that's a pretty good price, especially when drugstore makeup can get a bit pricey these days.

Sorry for posting already used products! I actually picked this up in Chicago during vacation and was really excited to use them and I didn't want to be made fun of photographing cosmetics before going out, haha.

Also, sorry for such inconsistent lighting on this post. The sun keeps coming out, then disappearing, then repeats it all over again! I did my best, I promise!

VS Makeup Color Drama Lipstick in Sinful

The lipstick on my lips gives an opaque, glossy pinky-nude color. It definitely covers my natural lip color completely and lightens it without giving me a ghastly look. I'm very happy with this; it's hydrating and lasts on my lips until I start eating, which is every 3 to 4 hours for me. I applied the lipstick straight out of the tube without a lip brush.

Excuse the dryness of my lips and the countless lines. The lip liner is very long lasting but it's not a product I'd wear out on its own because it isn't attractive. It's just your basic nude liner which is a staple in my makeup collection. The plus side for this is that it's a twist up so you won't be needing any sharpeners! (FYI, I hate sharpening my pencils because I feel like I don't get to use 100% of my product.)

And here it is paired together. I like the way the lip liner makes the lipstick more nude, rather than pinky. You can use it vice versa too, use a pinky lip liner and then top it off with the lipstick and it'll achieve a more pinky-toned lip.


Excuse the bare face (although I'll admit I airbrushed some blemishes out in photoshop) but just imagine this paired with a dramatic eye! The lipstick is lighter than the liner so you can actually use a lip brush to apply the lipstick and create some dimension to your lips.

Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase! I won't be going back for anymore items, simply because there probably won't be anything left besides the stripper glitter eye shadow palettes. If you love glitter or are interested in these products, I definitely recommend you go to your nearest Victoria's Secret and take a look before everything is gone for good!

Did you get anything from the sale?
