Get Pretty Lips with Rimmel Vinyl Bronze

Hey everyone! How's it going today? I'm really glad it's almost Friday, that's for sure. So who out there has tried Rimmel Vinyl Gloss? It's actually a really good product. I like the way it feels on the lips, and the colors (Snog was my go-to lip gloss Senior year of college)... but I think Vinyl gloss fell victim to my need to continually try new products. Has that ever happened to you? You find something that's a pretty great product, but you just kind of fall into new things and before you know it, you're barely using that great gloss anymore... well, Vinyl Gloss is back for me in a BIG way! A total "rediscovered" product as I like to say.

Here's what happened... I was in Wal-Mart and waaaayyyy down at the bottom of the Rimmel display, I noticed some new packaging on the lip gloss. They had bronze lids, and came in 3 gorgeous light shades. It seemed like something that would normally be out in a special display, but they were sort of hidden. Buying these was a no-brainer. I knew I liked Vinyl Gloss, the price was cheap, and the colors looked gorgeous. I got them home and started trying them and was totally pleased. Memories of why I love this gloss formula came flooding back to me... nice scent, not too sticky but just sticky enough texture... but the shades were unlike any I've tried from Rimmel. All of them somewhat light with a very subtle shimmer... but they each added their own unique hue to the lips.

I feel like these colors really perk up the skin just to put them on. They're nice choices as we head into spring and you want to try some new light glosses. I felt the need to show you pictures of each shade on the lips... so here you go! :)

Golden Goddess: Sheer, shimmery gold tint. Perfect to throw on just to give a little extra shine to the lips. A nice light shade that actually perks up your skin with the gold undertones, rather than sucking the life out of your skin like some light shades. Worn alone, this will give a sheer wash of gold to the lips. However- in the picture above, I put a bit of concealer on my lips to really neutralize the natural pigmentation- and to show how this could be worn like a nude lip. Throw on a smokey eye? Perfect!

Bronze Ambition: This has got to be the ideal lip gloss to wear with a tan. If you're not all that comfortable with wearing a really light shade on your lips, but you want something a little less intense for Spring- this is a great pick. It makes the lips look beautifully bronze, but you still get the pretty golden undertone. (The camera really picked up on the gold shimmer in this picture).

Summer Nude: This one might just barely edge out the other two as my favorite. But BARELY. It's so so pretty. A gorgeous soft mauve-pink that I think would look awesome on any skin tone. I really like wearing this on top of any lipstick as well- from a reddish lipstick to a pink or plum tone. The shine is gorgeous (as it is with all the colors) and I'm pretty much in love with this. I would definitely advise you to snatch it up! And the other two as well! :)

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Have a great day! :)

  3. I saw these the other day too. I didn't like the texture, or doe foot. I think if they made it with a brush it would be so much better.

  15. Oooh, lovely shades - I imagine they'd be the perfect accompaniment to a nice tan.

    You mention products that you love but kinda drift away from and for me that would have to be Estee Lauders Pure Colour glosses. They're the perfect everyday gloss and come in the most gorgeous shades yet I always end up trying a massive array of other (less awesome!) prducts.
