~Review~ Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Lip Tint + Swatches +FOTDs!!!....

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

I was in Victoria's Secret about two weeks back and I picked up two of the Beauty Rush Glossy Lip Tints. I got Better Than Bare and Manic Pink.
I'm not a fan of the Beauty Rush line mainly because the quality is low and the prices are high. LOL! These two were 2 for $12 and I think one of them alone is $7.50- $8. I've been duped on Beauty Rush before, but I was able to swatch these two colors in the store with the tester. I knew what I was getting into!


Better Than Bare on the left and Manic Pink on the right.....
Sorry for the cloudy photo...my lens was dirty. guh.

I'm wearing  Manic Pink in this photo. It goes on semi sheer but it has alot of color. Manic Pink is very smooth in texture as well and had a faint cupcake-ish smell.


Better Than Bare was the same texture and smell. However, its not a nude you would it expect. Its actually really brown. Almost my true lip color. I like nudes that are a step or two above my natural lip shade. I would recommend this to a nude shy, darker skin chica. Still, its pretty.

 My biggest problem with these is that the color name is not on the stick. Once you take all the plastic off, the name is gone in the trash. That's trouble for a beauty addict.:/

Overall...

I think this a great for casual pop of color on the face with you don't want a sticky gloss or a full on lipstick. Beauty Rush Lip Tints have a Revlon Lip Butter feel them but less buttery. LOL!  I saw a bright orange one that I'm going to go back and get.:)


 

~ My Favorite Nude Lipsticks + Swatches~

I was inspired today by my sorors Alrinthea and Dana to do a post on my favorite nude lippies ( Thanks ladies XOXO!!) Al posted this picture of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin on Facebook and a vibrant conversation on her lip color ensued!!

I actually own a color that is very similar to this lip color the Queen in wearing. Its Kate Moss for Rimmel in #14.
I go between 8-10 different nude lipsticks at a time....and to think four years ago I couldn't find my perfect nude.

They are:( left to right) NYX Tea, NYX Perfect Taupe, NK Natural , NK Camel, Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee, Kate Moss for Rimmel in #14, Wet N'Wild Barely Legal, MAC Fresh Brew.

Swatches......

 NYX Tea
 NYX Perfect Taupe
 NK Natural
 NK Camel
 Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee
 Kate Moss for Rimmel in #14
 Wet N'Wild Barely Legal
 MAC Fresh Brew

What I have found out about finding the perfect nude shade for me is a color or two lighter than my natural lip color with a flat ( no shimmer) base. Only one of these nudes is a shimmer and its Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee.

When I do wear a nude lip gloss, its Kiss New York Brush On Lip Gloss Lust.  I also top my nude lipsticks with a clear gloss, just right in the middle of the lip. I rarely wear a liner with the nude colors, I like the color blend with my skin color but when I do, my go to shade is NK lip liner in Brown which is a slightly ( and I mean slight, almost dupeable )darker shade of MAC Cork.

So what are some of your favorite nude shades...let me know!!
