What Rimmel says about Vinyl Max Gloss
“IIntroducing Rimmel London Vinyl Max Lip Gloss. Full c
overage, high gloss-shine.

For louder, bigger, bolder and braver pouts, you’ve come to the right place. Discover a gloss that keeps lips soft and smooth, whilst magnifying and intensifying volume and colour. And for once, you don’t have to compromise on comfort. The innovative, voluptuous wand allows easy application. Just one effortless glide gives full coverage for maximum impact and ultimate shine. With a hot new formula that smoothes and plumps out lips, you can experience a luxurious feel in six incredible shades, ready for today, tonight and tomorrow in one fabulous instant.

It’s time to pump up the volume – go big, or go home.”

Some gorgeous colours to choose from including; Passion, Addictive, Desire, Muse, Excess and Dare..

My chosen one is DESIRE

I love the super sized applicator that makes applying gloss easier (no really, it does). One swipe is all you need. The slightly tapered flattered tip makes application much easier and precise as well.

The gloss has a soft vanilla scent . though it doesn’t have any taste once applied on the lips

The formula is very soft, smooth and not too thick..

The gloss doesn’t stay on too long maybe for an hour or two maximum. It doesn’t dry out my lips or leave a residue behind

Desire is a deep brownish reddish colour gloss, slightly darker than my lips I love this because it looks natural and quite beautiful once worn. My lips look full and pouty!!


The price is right.

The packaging is sleek and simple.

The applicator is huge with a tapered tip for precise and quick application.

Super shiny.

Full coverage.

Soft, subtle scent.


Only stays on for 1-2 hours maximum, so you have to reapply often.

Limited shades available especially for us women with pigmented lips.

Would I Repurchase: Most definitely yes.!!!!

I bought this in the shade called Desire!

Sophie Kinsella , you are my hero!!!

I am an emotional shopper… yes I am an addict. Whew… there I said it.

I love the high I get from my buying something nice. I love looking at baby clothes ooing and aahing at it and then buying it for my neices…. particularly when I am feeling undervalued and sorry for myself, It band aids my psyche…. it makes the hurt go away if not only for a fleeting moment…. I love that warm fuzzy feeling I get…..

until I get the dreaded credit card bill!!! I have paid my credit card bill and I am clear. Lord help me curb this habit I have please please give me the courage to walk past those alluring shop windows with my head faced forward and held high… give me the strength to say no!!!

Let me be a winner everyday.
