Loooooong post ahead. You've been warned.
Now this is what I call a freakin' lip stain!!! These Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Shine Sticks are definitely lip stains in stick form (with the exception of a couple of colors), and they are so f*ckin' fantastic I went back to buy multiples of each and am still planning to go back again to try the rest of the other colors out too!
It started out with a $10 off coupon I had. After proving myself correct on the demise of the VS Beauty Rush Pool Party Lip & Cheep Pop, I saw online that they made a newer version called the Lip & Cheek Tint. Armed with the coupon, I made my way into a local VS Beauty store, knowing there will be some damages. Of course, VS always has evil ways of tempting me, this time with their current promotion of mix and match any Beauty Rush item 5 for $20. I wasn't about to pay the retail price of $7 for the Lip & Cheek Tint, and there are only 3 colors available. Even if I were to buy one of each color, which I did, I still needed to get another 2 of something to make it 5.
That was when I spotted these Glossy Shine Stick and proceeded to play with the tester on the back of my hand. And ooh, they felt goooood on the back of my hand, very thin but shiny veil of color, think Clinique Almost Lipstick, only glossier. Out of the 6 colors available, I picked the 3 I would most likely wear: the Lemon Twist was too violet, Citrus Sorbet too beigey, and Colada Love too mauvey, so I ended up with the Mango Tango, Melon Out, and Strawberry Fields.
