Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss
Advantages: Gives the lips a pretty glossy finish which is quite long lasting
Disadvantages: It may be too shimmery for some
I wear lipstick very often as I'm not sure if it suits me or not. I also think that my lips are too plain without anything at all and so I normally fall back on lip glosses. My latest purchase was the Stay Glossy Lip Gloss by Rimmel.
What does the product do?
The product promises to give the lips a long lasting glossy finish while also gives the lips a nice shape. It claims that it will leave your lips shiny for up to 6 hours and to also pamper your lips with cotton and silk to leave your lips conditioned and healthy. It also leaves the lips looking pretty and eye catching.
There are quite a few shades to choose between although most of them are pink shades. I chose the Always Lovely shade which is a pretty baby pink colour. Each shade comes with a lovely name such as My Eternity, Endless Night and Stay My Rose. There is a even a black shade called Black Diva for the braver among us.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a see through tube and you can clearly see the colour of the gloss inside. It is plastic and it has a silver screw top lid which has a slight dent in the middle to allow you to hold the gloss easily. The wand is attached to the lid and it is thick and spongy with a slightly pointed edge which allows you to apply the gloss with precision.
The product will cost you around £6 and it can be bought from stores such as Boots and Superdrug, large supermarkets and also from a variety of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product doesn't have a very nice smell. The aroma is like that of glue and although you can smell it a bit as you apply the product, it doesn't linger and it shouldn't put you off the product. The product is very glossy but the spongy wand allows you to apply the gloss to the lips precisely. The wand doesn't pull or drag the lips and a lot of the gloss goes on the lips with just one application. It has a very thick and gooey consistency which definitely makes the lips glossy. The colour is sheer and you can still see the colour of your lips underneath but the gloss gives your lips a prettier shade of pink.
The gloss is really shimmery and it is almost glittery so it won't be to everyone's liking. It's not really very classy but it is fun and I like it for a night time look. I wouldn't wear it to work. It feels completely comfortable on my lips and it hasn't caused me any irritations. The gloss is particularly sticky although you have to expect this to some extent. It does stay on the lips for a few hours and it can withstand eating and drinking to some extent. When it has been removed, it doesn't leave my lips feeling dry and my lips do seem in quite a good condition.
All in all, this is a pretty and shiny lip gloss. It gives a sheer yet pretty colour although it is packed with shimmer which may not be to everyone's liking. It makes your lips look eye catching and the results are quite long lasting. If you like a shimmery gloss then this is for you but if you prefer the classy look, you may not appreciate this one.
Summary: A lovely lips product which makes the lips glossy, shimmering and pretty
