So they claim it’s neither a lipstick nor a gloss. It’s supposed to be a rich colour enhanced by a satin smooth shine.
I wanted to like this so bad but I am actually very disappointed. I like Rimmel lip products. I own quite a few. So when this came on the market I’ve been wanting to try them. I’ve also seen a few ladies on here do reviews of it and they seemed happy.
They came in 13 different shades and very nice packaging. Beautiful shades, I’ll give them that. I was in search of a nude lip gloss so I picked it up in Nude, called Phenomenon. It is a peachy nude shade. Perfect nude if you must.
Once you apply it initially, it does do everything they claim, it is satin like, soft, pigmented, beautiful texture on your lips. I know some may mind the smell but I actually like that part, it’s kind of flowery. Looks great right?
About 5-10 mins after, this lip gloss dries terribly. It turns matte, that beautiful shine disappears and so does the colour with it. It looks more of a stain from whatever the colour used to be. My lips just looked cracked and chapped.
I purchase lip glosses simply for the GLOSS effect. If I wanted a matte lip product, I’d go get a matte lipstick. I loved the original Rimmel glosses. They are long lasting, and have a wet effect to them. So I thought if those were good, these new ones will be off the chain! No. Big Fail.
Maybe other colours are not like this but I don’t even care to try.
Have you tried these lip glosses? What did you think? Am I the only crazy one that did not like these?
