A couple of summers ago I purchased a top on Victoria’s Secret website and in order to qualify for free shipping I needed to buy a couple of more items. The site was having a sale on their cosmetics, and although I’d never bought any make-up from Victoria’s Secret before I decided to buy their Very Sexy Perfect Lipstick in Satin Sheets for the sale price of $3.
I normally don’t like buying make-up on-line because the colors tend to be different then what you were expecting, but the Satin Sheets color sounded sexy. It was described as a rose gold color which isn’t too far off from my natural lip color so I figured it would probably compliment my skin.
When the lipstick arrived a few days later I was excited to try it on. It comes in a black rectangular tube that has the words ‘Very Sexy’ spelled out in fuchsia dots across it’s sides, and when the case is closed a small strip of fuchsia peeks out in between the lid and base.
Inside the Very Sexy Perfect Lipstick case the Satin Sheets shade really does look like a soft rose color. It does have a golden tone to it because of very tiny gold flecks that are well blended and almost invisible to the eye.
Even though this Very Sexy lipstick nearly matches my bottom lip’s color, it actually looks one shade lighter than it because of that golden glow it has to it. When I used the Satin Sheets shade on my upper lip, which is a deep rose color about two shades darker than my bottom lip, it made it look much lighter.
For me the Very Sexy Satin Sheets lip color is my perfect nude color, rather than making my lips look the rose / pink shade in the tube it actually looks more like a golden beige color with a hint of pink that you can barely detect.
It is the only shade I’ve found that can be used if I wanted a really pale lip, it’s perfect to give myself a mod look. For me the Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Perfect Lipstick in the Satin Sheets shade is also my perfect for making other lipsticks look their actual color on my lips. Because I’m African American my lips are darker so whenever I try on certain lipsticks colors they usually look darker on my lips or the color turns into a different shade altogether. So I now use the Satin Sheets shade as a base and then apply whatever other lipstick I want on top of it and it looks truer to the shade.
Besides my love of the color of the Very Sexy Perfect Lipstick, I am also in love with the texture of it. The Perfect Lipstick glides on really smoothly without being waxy or hard to distribute. It also feels really good on, it has a creamy and moisturizing feel and it actually feels as good as a lip balm as it glides on. Although it doesn’t have a super shiny finish, it isn’t a matte lipstick either so I’d describe it as having a sheen.
Overall I love the Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Perfect Lipstick in Satin Sheets. For me it’s my favorite nude lipstick. I would recommend this shade for people with tan or light brown skin, but if you’re pale I would avoid this color because it would wash you out, and it would look chalky against deeper skin tones. However I would recommend the Very Sexy Perfect Lipstick to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive rich feeling lipstick. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
