Review: Rimmel London Vinyl Gloss

What is it?
"Vinyl Gloss now has a great shine magnifying formula for beautiful juicy looking lips that are bursting with colour. Its technology features a boosted magnifying Vinyl Shine Complex for a perfectly sculpted pout that is up to 80% shinier! The formula also boasts incredible light refraction and high colour retention. It’s the ultimate in glossy glamour with lips up to 40% curvier." - Rimmel London website.

Price: $5.79

My Review: This is my very first Rimmel London purchase. I get alot of coupons in the newspaper from them, and decided to snag these since they was on clearance. Smitten is a very fun day time lip gloss, it's a very simple pink color, it's not too sparkly. Whereas Cosmic has more of an evening feel to it, this one has a little shimmer to it. They are both very translucent in color. I did not feel that it made my lips look pouty or curvier, and it is just as shiny as any other lip gloss. The wand applicator makes it easy to apply. It's not very thick either. You can use one layer for just a quick shine, or about 3 layers to see some color. It stays on for about 4 hours or so if you do not lick it off. It does have a pleasant smell to it, but no taste (this is always good because I tend to lick off tasty lip gloss, haha!

Would I buy it again?: Yes

Have you tried these? What are your thoughts on them?

Don't forget that Hautelook is also having an Urban Decay sale tomorrow (Monday), beginning at 11amEST!
I snagged a couple of items a few weeks back and got a wonderful deal on them :]  Swatches later...

I'm very excited because Sheckys is on Wednesday, I'll be taking some photos so for those of you who were interested in going can plan for next time. Have a wonderful week!
