Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss

Rimmel London has improved much with its Moisturizing lipstick & now these new Lip glosses.

This is a range of gloss from Rimmel London that promises six hours of wear time.

There are 14 delightful shades to choose from clear to black (rare in a drugstore brand!). I usually hate most Rimmel glosses because they are either too sheer (Moisture Renew I am talking about you!) or pretty sticky (Vinyl gloss, which I loved but it was like glue!). The 6 hour claim is a bit much. It's pretty long-lasting but 6 hours is pushing it. I would say 2 hours maximum when worn alone and may be an hour longer if worn with lipstick.

The flat sponge tip applicator applies the lip gloss quite evenly. It glides on smoothly.

I have three shades:

Jewel in the crown: Rich pink with silver shimmer.
Captivate me: Mauvey shimmering Rose shade.
Stay my rose: Natural color with a hint of pink, but way too sheer for my pigmented lips.

                   (Left to right: Captivate me, Jewel in the crown, Stay my Rose)

Rimmel says "Style. Shape. Shine. Stay Glossy delivers on all three with a fantastic new formula and applicator combo, custom-designed for fabulously luscious lips that last, and last, and last. New Stay Glossy Lipgloss features advanced Shine Extend™ technology for up to six hours of fabulously polished perfection. Its lip-loving formula pampers lips with a caring complex of cotton and silk for increased lips moisturisation. The innovative Soft Extend™ applicator is designed for ultimate speed and accuracy, defining your dream lips in a flash."

Adorable packaging with a sleek tube and fancy silver cap.
The sticker (with the name) rips off when you open the plastic cover.

Light weight
Nicely pigmented
Color pay off is decent
Glossy with micro shimmer in it

Same as pretty much all Rimmel lip products. Has a pleasant smell, sort of sweet but not over-powering.

Not sticky or tacky
Decent staying power (2 hours)
Very affordable

It doesn't last for 6hrs as it claims.

Retail price: $3.49 (for 5.5 ml/0.18 fl oz)

Girls who are on budget and who prefer a lighter formula will definitely like this product.

Will I repurchase: No. Though I wouldn’t say no to a sale or BOGO offer. I would love to try some other colors.
