Victoria's Secret Pool Party Beauty Rush Lip Butter Review and Swatches

Victoria's Secret Pool Party Beauty Rush Lip Butter are available in three shades, have an SPF 15, and are tasty treats for your lips this Summer!

Check out what I think after the jump!

I showered a whole lot of love on the Victoria's Secret Pool Party Collection when I seen it in stores. The Muse cannot hold out against VS makeup goodies very long. I'd have normally left the glosses in all honesty but something tempted me that day. Could be the allure of a tasty gloss, could be the bright popping colors, could be I was just weak that day. Whatever the case may be I ended up getting two of the three shades available (who knows I'd probably gotten three if the other shade was available at the time). Now, one thing I should mention, I was mistakenly thinking these were glosses but actually they are lip butter. Oh, ok, big difference!

I was kinda juiced at such popping shades in a gloss but as I mentioned, lip butter, big difference eep! No likey the texture or formula on my lips. Feels a tad bit on the silicone side and kinda waxy-like. Mmmm...not loving it sadly! I'm wearing Frostea (orange shade) in my FOTD here if you'd like to see what they look like on.

Aside from the undesirable formula these hold a bit of appeal as they are tasty. I got Frostea and Lemonita. Frostea tastes like iced tea and is a bright popping orange shade where as Lemonita is a tart, fruity lemon and a shade of sizzling pink. Both have decent pigmentation so you can get away without using a lipstick or stain underneath as they do leave a hint of sheer color behind.

Taste is great (love flavored lip products), price isn't bad at 3 for $15, and the colors are pretty sweet for Summer plus these contain SPF 15. They definitely have a bit of a good thing going for them now I just need to get over the idea that they aren't a gloss but a butter aka waxy, silicon feeling on my lips, yak! If I can get past that I might be able to recommend 'em for purchase.

Cute but longing for a better formula here.

Anyone try yet?

Do share it!

I got the Frostea one and I hate it! I hate the texture and the taste. I think it's awful! I was really disappointed with it, as I LOVE the Beauty Rush lip glosses & have almost every single one!

I do think the pool party theme is cute & I love the colors. Too bad the lip butter is just gross.

hey zanne

sorry for the delayed reply. loving the taste but I know I'm not much for the texture either :( I thought they'd be glossy but it's a balm that's much like vaseline.

Oh well at least they taste awesome :-D

I love the theme too. They did a good job.

Did you see the shadows?

I actually love these lip butters to death. I am very pleased with the texture, as I find many ofthe lipglosses to be much too sticky for me.
