Today takes the turn of the Rimmel Vinyl Lipgloss. Now unless you've been living in a cave for the past 6 months you will have seen the millions of adverts claiming to give you up to 40% curvier lips with an added extra shine. I decided to put it to the test and try out a fairly neutral shade, Take A Chance.
One thing I love about this product more than others is its packaging. Im really picky usually but this product with its sturdy clear tubing does me just fine. The applicator is like most: has soft fibres, a long handle for control and it distributes the product perfectly. The formula is very good and glides on to the lips upon application. Its ever so slightly sticky but what lipgloss isnt?
Take A Chance is very much a 'your lips but better' shade (demonstrated well in the picture below). Its pretty much colourless but with hints of pink and gold glitter. The gloss itself has yellow undertones and would suit most skin types. Rimmel picks up more brownie points for the longetivity - its very long-lasting and and isn't really affected by eating or drinking.
