The Oil Lip Trend on a Budget with Rimmel

In a world that seems to crave matte lips, it’s always nice to have something released that satisfies my need for something a bit more dewy. The ‘Oh My Gloss!’ lip gloss range was actually released back in March as part of the new ‘Colourfest’ collection from Rimmel. I actually reviewed some of the nail polishes from the range, you can see that post by clicking here

There’s a bit of a fashion at the moment, where oils are being added to lip products. Huge high end brands have been adding oil to their lip glosses, as they add a dewy look and feel. They also have other great benefits, including leaving your lips soft. What’s special about these lip glosses from Rimmel London, is that they contain Argan Oil (and Vitamin E), but at an incredibly cheap price bracket.

I have the colour ‘snog’ which is a lovely ‘my lips but better’ shade! You can see by the swatch that the Rimmel London Oh My Gloss! lip glosses have an incredible high shine finish. The colour is fairly sheer but it adds a nice wash of colour to your lips. The formula is very lightweight and really lovely to wear. For me the lipglosses feel slightly tacky, but certainly not sticky. 

I love the packaging too, it’s very clean and simple. There’s a clear tube that lets the colour shine through, with a matt black lid. The tube is slightly angled, which makes it all look a little bit different. The applicator is a thin doe foot, which allows you to apply the lipgloss really easily. All in all, it’s a great product, especially when you consider it’s only £5.99. This is a great way to give the oil lip product trend a whirl, but save your bank balance!
