Victoria's Secret Make-up

Hi everyone!

A couple of days ago I went by a Victoria's Secret store because I wanted to purchase a new bronzer. While there, I also picked up "The Nakeds" palette and a lip gloss so I decided to write a little post about it :)

The Nakeds Palette, Color Drama Lip Shine, Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder
1. The Nakeds Palette
I decided to give this palette a try because the color selection is amazing and reminds me of The Naked Palette by Urban Decay. I don't own The Naked Palette but I would definitely love to since I've heard great things about it. In the meantime, I will be using this. :)
The packaging is pretty and very easy to manage
The Victoria's Secret website describes this palette as a versatile eyeshadow palette that has "everything you need to create the sexiest neutral eye looks of the season".

The palette includes 10 eyeshadows that range from "subtle earth tones and muted pastels to smoky gray and shimmery black". It also comes with a great black eyeliner and a dual ended brush.

The palette also comes with step by step instructions on how to get the Barely Naked and Seductively Naked looks.

 I really like this palette. The colors are very pigmented and you can create different looks with it. It is the perfect palette to create an everyday look but also a sexy smokey eye for a night out.

The price is affordable at $28. You can get this palette in store or follow this link for their website: The Nakeds Palette

2. Color Drama Lip Shine

This lip gloss gives a little bit of color and a lot of shine. I really like it, as it leaves my lips soft and looking luscious.  They have a wide variety of shades to choose from. This particular one that I have is a pale pink color which I think compliments a lot of skin tones and is great to wear everyday on its own or on top of a lipstick.
I don't know exactly what shade it is since it doesn't say on the actual lipgloss but I think it's the color "Pinup".

The gloss is $9.00 or 2/$15 or 4/$20 which I think is a great deal:)

3. Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder

"Bask in a bronze glow. Skin-loving mineral powders blend in a unique marbleized finish to give skin an instantly brightening touch of sun-kissed radiance." This is what the website says, which I agree with 100%. I really like this bronzer. A little goes a long way. It leaves your skin looking glowy and bronzed. The shade I have is Goddess which I think is one of the darker shades.

Like I said, the color is beautiful and the packaging, even though it's plastic, it looks quite expensive. I like it because it's really light and easy to carry around with you in a handbag.

The cost is $16.00

All in all, I think VS makeup is quite good in general. Some of the stuff is not always great but these products are pretty amazing and I'm glad I purchased them. I hope that this review has been useful to some of you and if you own any of these products or any VS products feel free to leave me a comment and let me know how you like them! :)

Until next time,

xoxo, Adela

  2. Hi Adela,
    omg this post is GODSEND! like i've been searching high and low for a review on their baked bronzer.
    Just one question, for this bronzer since it contains shimmer, do you apply it all over your face for a radiant glow or you do follow the contour&sculpt? im not sure if its pigmented enough for contouring. usually i just apply all over for a 'sunkissed' look.

    1. Hey! I'm glad this helps! I sometimes apply it all over and sometimes just for contouring. It doesn't have that much shimmer so it's ok. It's really pigmented and comes in different shades :) I recommend it!
