Victoria’s Secret Color Drench Intense Lip Gloss in At First Sight: Swatches & Review
I have started wearing lip glosses very recently and like any ‘deprived’ person, I am getting swept off my feet by the variety of lip glosses available. ;) I was a lipstick fanatic and now, these wonderful lip glosses have become my new best friends. Like everybody I am a fan of Victoria’s Secret personal care stuff. But, it is only now that I have discovered they have equally awesome makeup line as well. Victoria’s Secret Color Drench Intense Lip Gloss in At First Sight is my pick for today’s review.
Color: Victoria’s Secret Color Drench Intense Lip Gloss in At First Sight is a medium rosy pink with neutral undertones. The color is a very pretty color that brightens my face. Since it is neutral toned, I guess it should suit almost all skin tones. This is a color that is a universal shade of pink and if you prefer wearing lip glosses over lipsticks, I am sure you will find a lipstick in your stack that will be an absolute match for this gloss. I love that this gloss does not necessarily need a full face makeup. Just wearing this alone would be enough to make you look fresh. And for special occasions, this lip gloss will add more glamour to any pink lipstick you wear. :)
Quality: I was very excited to try the lip gloss as I loved the color. However, Victoria’s Secret Color Drench Intense Lip Gloss in At First Sight was a little disappointment quality wise. The texture is definitely smooth and feels very light on the lips. It also does not feel very sticky as other glosses. However, it does not apply evenly. It has the tendency to look goopy on the lips. I have to spend a little time smoothening out the gloss and make it look beautiful . It also settles into fine lines. But, there is some merit to this lip gloss as well. The lip gloss has a good pigmentation. Even pigmented lips won’t require a lipstick underneath. It does not dry out lips and stays for an average of 4-5 hours on me. It does not transfer a lot and stays put for a long time. The lip gloss comes in a typical glass packaging with a black cover. I find the packaging quite stylish.

Recommendation: Victoria’s Secret Color Drench Intense Lip Gloss in At First Sight is definitely an awesome pick for me. I love the pretty rosy shade of pink and the hydrating feel on the lips. Has impressive pigmentation and can be worn alone without a lipstick. Will look beautiful on all skin tones. However, this is a gloss that you can’t just slap-on in hurry and get ready. You need to spend some time to make it look beautiful on the lips. So, if you do not mind working on this lip gloss and do not have such shade of pink, I do not see any reason why should you not pick up Victoria’s Secret Color Drench Intense Lip Gloss in At First Sight. :)
