I have a lip gloss problem. The problem? I can never have enough! Just ask my purse, filled with about 12 different types of the same shade of gloss!
I recently saw this Rimmel Moisture Renew Lip Gloss and was drawn to it for the SPF 15 + vitamins in it, who can’t use more SPF and vitamins to boot? This gloss is not at all sticky, which I enjoy, but that also means it is not long wearing, requiring frequent re-application. I am finding it is best suited to summer, pool, hiking, day drinking, etc. I think this gloss is a fun option and a great way to a little something to your look, by the pool, on the golf course, whatever your sun-drenched poison may be. My lips tend to get wind/sunburned and this is a great way to protect them with a little sheer color.
The only con I have for this gloss, and it is a big one, it tastes and smells like sunscreen. It does not keep me from using it, but it is a little unpleasant. That might be a deal breaker for some of you out there, but I can deal with it for the protection, price and shine.
Have any of you out there tried it? What are your verdicts on this gloss?
Rimmel has come out with a genious new lipgloss, Light Beam Lipgloss as part of their Underground collection. What is great about this lipgloss is that it features a mirror on the side of the vial and a light beam, right in the corner of the cap. No more trying to re-apply light gloss without proper light, this time the light it built right in. Packaging aside though, this lipgloss really has a great texture. It goes on smooth and isn’t tacky. It kept my lips soft the whole time, it felt like more of a lip balm than a gloss. The colors may look a little startling but give the shades a try, they are quite sheer once you put them on.
I am a mascara addict. I try every new one that comes out in the market – therefore, I have yet to remain loyal to one because there is always a new one coming out! So, during one of my favorite trips to the Target makeup section, I came across a new Rimmel Mascara, called Lycra Lash Extender. Being a fan of Rimmel’s Eye Magnifier Eye Opening Mascara, I was excited and ready to try this one.
Lycra Lash Extender promises 60% more length and 50% more curve. This mascara contains lycra (hence the name) – yes the same lycra that makes our jeans fit so great. This mascara definitely delivers. I have very sparse, short lashes and this one gives the illusion of fake, long lashes. I like to put on multiple coats, but even after just 2 coats, you will see the difference. My lashes remained soft, not hard and flaky throughout the night – but most importantly Longer and Thicker. The brush is called a “stretching” brush, but looks like a normal mascara brush to me, yet is very comfortable to hold. This mascara comes in black and brown. I always pick a black shade and this one was not overpowering at all. All in all a good new mascara to add to the collection.
