Review: Rimmel London Oh My Gloss! Lipglosses Filled With Hydrating Argan Oil & Vitamin E
Like so many other girls, I’m obsessed with lip glosses. Whether it’s a quick swipe of a nude shade on bare lips before I run out the door to go shopping, or a heavy dose of shine layered on top of an opaque lipstick before I go out at night – you really can’t go wrong.
The only possible reason I’d ever side-step a lipgloss, though, is it’s ability to dry out lips in winter.
So many lip glosses are filled with petroleum that doesn’t feed the lips with anything nourishing what-so-ever. This is why sometimes, even when wearing lip gloss, you can end up with dry chapped lips which are depressingly only emphasised when smeared with a coloured gloss worn over the top.
Thankfully however, Rimmel London has brought out their new Oh My Gloss! lip glosses which are filled with argan oil and vitamin E – both ingredients famous for their ability to lock in moisture.
The clever makeup creatives at Rimmel London still kept all the super glossy, pigmented and pretty shades we lust over as well, so there is no need to head straight for a clear lip balm now when you really can have it all.
Oh My Gloss! feels more like a tinted lip treatment that smears on easily, and feels ultra loving on your lips.
It’s only after a few hours wear that you will notice that your lips still feel very buttery and plump, but shiny when you look into a mirror. Oh My Gloss! boasts up to 6 hours of shiny-wear. To be honest, because I’m a lipgloss addict I haven’t been able to test out the durability due to the fact that I re-apply without even noticing, it’s just a reflex (call a doctor STAT!).
The three shades I played with were Snog (top) an earthy nude shade, Crystal Clear (middle) which is without a hint of colour and Ohh La La (bottom) a vibrant cherry red.
Check out the full list of colours here, there are eight to choose from and they retail at $13.95.
