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 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!
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.
