Review: Rimmel Vinyl Max Lipgloss

Top: Addictive, Bottom: Dazzle // £5.49 each at Boots

On a recent shopping trip I picked these up on a whim from Superdrug. I'm running out of my current light pink gloss from Avon and was looking for a replacement when I saw these. I ended up buying a hot pink too because the colour was gorgeous and if I bought a second I got a free eyeliner (I love a deal!)

I really like the packaging although it might not be to everyone's taste. It is a chunky tube with a huge doe foot applicator which I think is meant to represent the 'max' aspect of the product and was quite a surprise when I pulled it out the tube! The brush is meant to enable you to apply the product in one quick swipe, although I think it takes a bit more precision than that with such a large applicator. The actual formula is very pigmented, glossy and sparkly which is a big plus point and is very long wearing on the lips - this is probably due to the very sticky and thick nature of the gloss which I know a lot of people probably wouldn't be a fan of. I'm not the biggest fan of the stickiness but for some reason it still hasn't put me off the product. I've used them alone and on top of lipsticks and like the finish both times. A little product goes a long way and due to the size of the tubes I reckon these will last me quite a long time, making them good value for money.

Although it has aspects which might not be to everyone's taste, I've actually really enjoyed using these glosses and think they are great for the day or a night out, providing intense gloss, pigment and longevity.

Have you tried these before? xxx


  1. In reply to the comment you left on my blog - I really love the Beauty Elixir! I've always had terrible skin and feel this product along with my everyday cleanser and moisturiser has helped improve my skin! I suggest you buy a smaller bottle to try it out first. That way if you don't like it you haven't lost out on too much money! :)

    Lovely swatches, these look fab!!

  4. Hi, I would love to read this review but I can't read the font :( maybe it's just me (I have good vision, don't wear glasses or lenses) or it's my laptop but I literally can't read the text. Maybe make it a font size bigger or a different font (though it's beautiful) or a different colour to make it more readable. I don't know if this has been mentioned before in other comments as I can't read them though I'm zoomed in 200%. Sorry, I just love this blog but I can't read your reviews :(

    1. Hi, that's a shame you haven't been able to read it, I've never had any complaints about the font size or colour but I will take it into consideration. It hasn't been a problem for other people as far as I'm aware as I have plenty of blog comments based on the posts I write and I have zoomed in 200% and it was enormous for me! Will have a play with the lay out and see what I can do x
