Yay or Nay: Victoria's Secret Cosmetics


The Muse is for the most part a supporting fan of Victoria's Secret Cosmetics. She's wondering what you think of their cosmetic line up?


Is Victoria's Secret a Yay or Nay for you?

Find out what I think after the jump!

I generally like almost all of the Limited Edition Collections that Victoria's Secret puts out. Most of the regular catalog items aren't particularly wonderful but they seem to go the extra mile with LE products. Most LE items are pretty special packaging wise and quality wise. Which is why I always pick up the LE items.

So my answer? Yay and Nay for this Muse!

Nay on the regular boring line up...not so great packaging wise, not really pigmented enough to oh and ah over, and just nothing special to get hyped about. A bit expensive too for the quality you get.



Yay on the LE items! Def special! Color payoff is normally quite good, packaging is unique and pretty, and quality is generally quite good.



How about you?

Yay or Nay or both?

Tell the Muse!

I was a huge fan of VS cosmetics about 10 years ago. I just love going to that store anyway. I spent sooooooo much it got my Victoria's Secret card from the gold level to platinum very fast. The salespeople at the store I went to were very friendly and nice, and that was probably a huge factor in me going back a lot. Since then I expanded my interest to try other cosmetic lines but I was meaning to go back and check out what they have now.

Ooo that's when the pretty pink and silver packaging was in style :-D I hate the black compacts now le sigh!

That's always a big deal for me too, good CS always gets my money ;-D

I think you'll be quite delighted with some of their LE items!

I love VS makeup, especially when they're on sale! I haven't tried their LE yet but some of the regular items I can't live without. Their lip glosses are really good, cheaper and sometimes better than MAC.

I am going to go with nay on this one. I feel like they copy off of other higher end brands that I know and love. Those brilliant lip shines look like a knock off of ysl gloss.

I don't have much love for vs anyway, they don't make my unique size. Booo to them I say! Nay Nay!
