Victoria's Secret Silky Eyeshadow Singles Review

I feel like Victoria's Secret eyeshadows are underrated and overlooked.  I really love a lot of them and find that they have great quality.  The singles I'm reviewing retail at $10, but they are always giving away coupons that make these cost next to nothing.  I still feel like they are worth the ten bucks because you get a lot of product as well as quality.  There are different categories of the shadows such as Sparkle, Lustre, and Velvet.  Sparkle shadows are the ones with tiny silver flecks in them that do show up on the eyelid.  Lustre shadows are extremely smooth shimmery shadows.  And Velvet shadows are very smooth matte formulas.
Sparkle: Taboo, Lustre: Darling, Lustre: Luscious

Sparkle: Fierce, Velvet: Prowl

Velvet: Primal, Lustre: Private Beach, Lustre: Beloved, Lustre: Serenity

Swatched without primer
From Left to Right: Primal, Private Beach, Beloved, Serenity, Prowl, Fierce, Luscious, Darling, Taboo

The purple that you see in this photo blended in my crease to brow bone is Luscious.

@Toni Tralala: I like the sparkles too. They're not chunky like some other glittery products.

@devorelebeaumonstre.: Will do :)

heh, I admit that I have underrated VS's cosmetics. I often go straight to the body sprays and lotions, completely ignoring the make up booth. I never knew the categories of their formulas, so I never bothered. I think I should start checking it out now. Can't wait to swatch their Velvet eyeshadows now.

I think VS's Velvet shadows are some of the best out of the three categories. Definitely check them out and tell me how you like them.
