Review: Rimmel New Vinyl Max Lipgloss

 Rimmel Vinyl Max Lipgloss - Outrageous. 38 Dirhams at all Rimmel retailers.

 Shade 701 - Outrageous

Vinyl Max is the latest lipgloss offering from Rimmel. It is basically like a turbo-charged lipgloss! I was surprised by how big it actually is.

Rimmel Says:
Rimmel has given it's cult gloss classic a new supersize volume makeover. With it's revolutionary volumizing complex and clever new one swipe wand, lips are plumper for a huge impact! MAXimum shine, MAXimum comfort, MAXimum color!

I say:
This is the first Rimmel lipgloss that I have ever tried and I'm glad I finally did! The formula is gorgeous. It's not sticky at all, but it's thick enough to give you a minimum of a few of hours wear. The gloss doesn't creep into lip lines, or pool at the corners, and it sort of creates a smooth, even, mirror like finish.

As for the volumizing complex, well I already have larger lips but I did notice a slightly cooling effect, so you will probably notice a slight volumizing effect if your lips are smaller.

Since I do have larger lips, I found the super-sized applicator to be quite convenient. But it does remind me of the glosses that were released with MAC's WonderWoman collection. I know that a lot of women complained that the applicators were too big for their lips. So I can see how it might be a little bit less convenient for some women. However, the applicator is angled and the tip is pretty pointed so you can always maneuver it that way.

 Rimmel Vinyl Max compared to NARS lipgloss, so you can see the difference in applicator size.
Swatch of Rimmel Vinyl Max Lipgloss #701

In the print ad, Georgia May Jagger is wearing Vinyl Max #301, Addictive. It looks like a great shade for party season!

Those headphones are soo cute!

Have any of you tried these?

This item was sent to me by PR.


  1. yeh i have this thing will write a review within few days

  2. It sounds like I would really like this in a neutral shade like Outrageous, but not so much in a dark shade like Addictive. Dark lips should look good on my skin/with my bone structure and lip size, but honestly they always look like I'm trying too hard.

  3. I saw this in the shop but the massive applicator turned me off, gonna go back and buy it now though, that colour is gorgeous. Great review :)

  4. It looks gorgeous, I'm on the hunt for a pretty and pigmented pink lipgloss!

  5. I've tried Rimmel lipglosses before and I was very impressed, I will try this one soon

  6. i like Vinyl Max #301; but some shades dont look like they are in posters and magazine... what do you think? can you trust this one?

  7. Great! Can't wait to read it! :)

  8. awww! I felt like that the first few times I was trying out a darker lip, maybe you just need to get used to it?

  9. Thanks! :) Let me know what you think of it. The formula really is great and it's very pigmented, especially for the price!

  10. I think they have a slightly more 'baby pink' on available as well, but I'm not sure of the name...haha sorry! I'm an awful blogger!

  11. I'm glad I tried this one out! I'm gonna have to try some more :)

  12. You know, I'm not sure. But judging by how pigmented the one I have is, I'd say it has a pretty good shot at looking like it does in the picture :)

  13. does the volumizer dry out your lips! i love this hue, perfect for year round!

  14. I've tried Vinyl gloss and loved it,must try this too,this shade looks nice :)
