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!

On a Guilt Trip

Published June 16, 2012 by sweetashoney

Ok guys I feel horribly guilty!!
I went to the health shop for some much needed vitamins as – have an awful cold. On my way out the mall I stopped by clicks and I splurged…. I am kinda excited but I also feel kinda guilty…….
I bought Maybelline Falsies Mascara (who doesn’t want gorgeous long lashes), Revlon moisturising eye concealer, Yardley Radiant Glo (luminiser) and Eucerin Dermatoclean cleansing Gel….I am so bored with Dermalogica that I have been using for a long long time (2 years to be exact).
I am so excited to try them all out but I also have a nagging twinge of buyers remorse… But that will pass!!! Nothing beats the High you get from shopping specifically makeup shopping!!!!
