Rimmel’s Vinyl Shine lip gloss was one of my very first “colour” makeup items, it’s been on the market for many years and a few shades like “East End Snob” have become iconic drugstore hits. The newer addition to the line called Vinyl Max rolled out quietly over here, no fuss, no big adverts and if it weren’t for some helpful beauty bloggers, this may have slipped past me completely.
Brand: Rimmel London
Product: Vinyl Max Lipgloss
Shades: 12 (from big brights to soft nudes)
Price: $6 CAD or $3.99 (on Sale!)
Would I repurchase: Not likely.
And of course let’s not forget the XXL wand which appears to be a love-hate situation with most people. I initially thought it was rather cool but unfortunately it did not provide the precision I needed and annoyingly took me a full minute to apply this gloss to my liking.
Excited as I was to find another great drugstore love, I was extremely annoyed to realize that this gloss bleeds…rather terribly. I had worn it on its own happily prancing around, chatting away with my lovely lips only to notice later that the gloss/pigments had bled its way into a little fuchsia ring around my mouth. Not cute, especially since this was a bright shade to begin with. So if you are gonna give one a shot, then remember to pair it with a lip liner or stay far away from the edges of your lips lest you be seen with a bleeding Joker smile.
