REVIEW: Victoria's Secret Truth or Dare Shimmer Powder


I got this as a gift from my good friend Belle last Christmas. It's from Victoria Secret Very Sexy makeup line. They have 3 shades which are Truth or Dare, Role Play and Show and Tell. I got the Truth or Dare shade.


the packaging is sleek and simple

Huge full size you get 9.9 gram /.35 oz

It has fine gold particles that gives a beautiful copper gold glow. This can be used for bronzing, blush, as an eyeshadow or all over body to have a nice healthy summer bronzy glow. The shade is perfect for medium tones. I personally use this as an eyeshadow, blush and bronzer. Light on the brush though as this is very pigmented a little goes a long way and it stays on pretty well.

has a cap to protect the powder from spilling

PROS:
  • huge full size
  • very pigmented
  • last long
  • versatile (can be used as a bronzer, blush or eyeshadow)
CONS:
  • if you don't like shimmers this isn't for you
  • phase out
THE VERDICT:

This imparts a healthy glow perfect for summer. It give shimmer in just the right places. Don't let the deep tint of this truth or dare scare you, it's perfect if you want a touch of color.
