The Summer Season: VS Makeup Be Mine Lipstick

VS Makeup Be Mine Perfect Lipstick ($12.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a creamy, brightened watermelon pink. It’s totally opaque, and it wears well–a nice three to four hours before it starts to fade. It has a soft, glossy sheen but no shimmer. VS Makeup Lipsticks are sleeper hits, in my opinion, because they really have amazing texture, color pay off, and wear.

Is this the right pink lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

  4. Jen

    So pretty! How would you say it compares to Laura Mercier’s Hydrangea? The photos look very similar to me, and Hydrangea has been hard for me to get a hold of!

    this l/s looks so pretty on you….would not look good on my tan skin for sure :(

  12. Jessica

    I agree, VS Lipsticks are wonderful. The colors are gorgeous (Scrumptious, a soft peach, is a fave) and I love the way they feel on the lips. Bonus: no scent or taste whatsoever!

  13. Leaving it! Because we don’t have access to Victoria Secret stuffs here in Hong Kong.. Too bad.. :(

  14. Jula

    I Have this color–I really love it! It’s amazing for summer, and the quality is great.

  15. This one is really pretty. So pink and summery. It looks really creamy too.

  16. ChiPui

    Damn, i wish there were nice brands like VS in the netherlands.. :( Or even a walmart!

  17. Kim

    It looks like impassioned from mac!

  18. Shal

    Looove this. I might just have to order it.

  19. Alexis

    VS makeup is totally underappreciated. I am a big fan of their glosses and their lip pencils are great too! I need to branch out and try a lipstick. Their eyeshadows have great pigment too!

  20. Kaitlin

    Please, please, please swatch or review Victoria’s Secret lip products more often! I think they’re incredible and I’d really like to know more about them.

  21. Lia

    wow this is a beautiful color!

  22. Kim

    Great great color…never tried VS beauty but I’ll have to give these a look next time I’m at the mall (or….now, online hehehe)

  23. Shal

    Ooooh I LOVE this! How does it compare to MAC’s Show Orchid? Are they similar?

  24. Gao

  25. cmferret

  26. Sheryl

    I love this color. How does this compare to MAC Chatterbox lipstick??

  27. ezzie

    sooo cute!!
    i normally don’t opt for such strong shades as this, but since it’s summer, i say bringg it on! xP
    i’d pair these lippies with a bold stroke of a waterproof liquid eyeliner and i’m so ready for summer!

  28. marcela macias

  29. CB

  32. Amy

    This is a really pretty pink! Love the color on you :)

  33. Sophia

    definitely want to try one of these!

    I have been lusting after this lipstick since this particular post showing it first went up…and still haven’t gotten it. I’d like to go get it this weekend, but don’t really know how well it would work with my coloring. I’m quite fair with warm undertones, I just don’t know if this would look garish. Guess there is only one real way to find out!

  35. Cheyenne

    Love it!! Thank goodness we have a VS makeup counter.

  36. Jenn

    Did VS repackage their lipsticks? I just bought Be Mine today and I noticed yours is in a silver tube and mine’s in a black plastic one. The packaging seems kinda flimsy to me, but oh well. Be Mine is a gorgeous color and I wouldn’t have ventured out into VS makeup if it weren’t for your blog. Thanks, Christine!

  37. Lu

    Pictures can be deceiving so would you say this is a warm or cool toned pink in person?

  38. courtney

    wow i need to pick this color up, such a good price for a beautiful color!! this is deff. my summer color :)
