Rimmel cosmetics has released a new line of long wearing lip duos—Rimmel Kiss and Stay. One side is a thick, long wearing stain, and the other is a gloss. I picked one up, and while I love the shade and lasting power of the stain, I was not at all happy with the gloss side of the duo.
The stain in the Rimmel Kiss and Stay duo is the typical high pigmented and fairly thick stain that you will see in long wearing products. Thus, in order to use it properly, you must apply it and let it completely dry before applying the gloss over it. Failure to let it dry will result in it chipping off or being over sticky. That is true of just about any long wearing product. I found that the stain had nice color and it dried in the typical two minute time frame. It also lasted fairly well for me.
The gloss end of the duo was the disappointment. The gloss is very much on the sticky side. I found myself rubbing it off as quickly as I could and replacing it with a different non-sticky brand. So, while I liked the color that I got from the stain side of the product, I will not be using the gloss side of it.
Rimmel Cosmetics are available in Target stores and some drugstores. I think I picked up my Kiss and Stay at Walgreens.
