Rimmel Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss Duo

Rimmel kiss and stay lasting finish lipgloss 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.

Lip Lust Light Up Lip Gloss From Hot Pants Cosmetics

I was sent a Hot Pants Lip Lust gloss to try. It is similar to the Rimmel light up gloss (read review) and Liparazzi gloss (read review) in that it is packaged with a light and a mirror–perfect for application in a dimly lit club! The gloss is advertised as plumping without tingling by including cottonseed oil to fill lines and improve shape. It also has mica in the pigment to create an interesting and rather pretty sparkle.

I tried Lush Lips Rich Mocha shade, which had a strong mocha chocolate scent and flavor. If you like chocolate, you will love this. If not, then you might want to opt for a different shade and flavor. Although quite brown in color, I found the tint to be sheer, so it looked just fine on me, even though I tend to wear pinks and avoid tans and browns.

What really impressed me though was the sparkle and shine. The mica in this gives the gloss a really nice shimmer that is perfect for nights out–something that fits perfectly with the idea of having a light up gloss. The gloss also has a very moisturizing feel to it that is not at all sticky, something that surprised me considering that it has a fairly high amount of pigment, which usually is what makes glosses stick a bit. Overall, it is a big winner in the flavored gloss department for me!

Lip Lust is available on the Hot Pants website for $19.99.


Rimmel Light Beam Lip Gloss

Rimmel Underground Light Beam Lip GlossWhen I first came across Rimmel Underground Light Beam After Dark Lip Gloss, I only saw it available in one shade that I was not very interested in. But today I came across it at Target in multiple shades, so I picked one up in a nice light pink color.

This is one heck of a fun gloss. There is a light in the lid that turns on with the push of a button on top. The attractive rectangle container also has a mirror on the side. So you can reapply your lip gloss in the dark!

Oh and the gloss is darn good too! Great for clubbing, or just plain fun to carry around, I highly recommend this one!
