Beauty Rush Lip Gloss Review (Victoria's Secret)

I recently went out and purchased several of Victoria's Secret (La Senza here in Canada) lip glosses. I had heard a lot of good things about them so I just had to try them out. I purchased 6 in various shades but I'm not going to focus on the colours as much as what I thought of the product itself. I really thought that I would be blown away by these glosses as I had heard such raves about them but really I think they are 'ok' glosses and not that exiting.

Now I must say I do really like some of the colours I purchased so I will use them but I won't be rushing out to buy more any time soon. First of all I found that they didn't apply all that well from the tube. Who wants to have to take a brush with them when they are on the go, but I will have to as from the tube this gloss ended up making a mess on my lips instead of a nice clean look. Part of this is because the gloss is quite thin which I know some of you may really like. For me the though this isn't a selling feature as I felt that it wore off too quickly resulting in more applications then I like to bother with. I am a fan of thicker gloss that sticks to the lips, I think it's just because I like the staying power of that type of gloss.

The scents are quite nice for the most part. I did find however that there were some colours I really liked, but had an odour that I just did not enjoy so I had to skip them all together. I really did like the one's I purchased however with melon scents as well as some mint which is always my favorite.

Overall if you are more of a lip balm type wearer who really likes a sheer gloss and doesn't mind applying several times a day then this one is for you, If you are however a MAC, or Obsessive Compulsive type gloss user then this one isn't for you!

I would really like to hear your feedback on this item so please leave your comments and let me know how you like this product!!

I really wanted to try these out as I tend to use glosses as prettier alternatives to plain lip balm (so the need to reapply won't out me off).

However the fact that you found they made a lot of mess puts me off. I'm glad I know this now as I don't want a face full of gloop :p

@ Glitterish Allsorts-I wish I had loved them more! Like I said they aren't a total loss. I just really found that because they were a thin consistency they didn't give the lip a nice shape, it just ran outside the lip line which I found really messy looking!
