Work, work and more work! That’s my life lately. Even at this moment I have so many other things to do, but I decided to choose my blog this time and write a post. Rimmel Oh my gloss! oil tint was an impulse purchase I did two months ago. I didn’t know anything about this lip oil before I saw it in the drugstore. Such moments are like Christmas for the beauty blogger. Rimmel lip oil comes in a bright colorful packaging and looks really cute. I ended up getting the shade 300 Modern pink.
I’m happy that now we have a cheaper version of the lip oils in the drugstores. I’m not a fan of the concept of this product. I’ve tried the Clarins and YSL’s lip oils (review here), and also Lancome Juicy Shakers (review here). I find this product to be unnecessary, but I’m pleased that now there’s a cheaper alternative for people who are curious to try a lip oil.
Each of the colors comes in a corresponding colored packaging. The product looks very fresh and summery. You get 6,5 g. of product. The packaging is what attracted me in the first place.
I would say that the formulation is quite similar to the formulation of the YSL lip oil. It gives a lovely color to the lips, it’s not sticky at all and it looks like a gloss on the lips. I find the formula to be decent in comparison to the other oils I’ve tried.
The lasting power is the biggest issue when it comes to the lip oils. Rimmel Oh my gloss! oil tint lasts around two hours or until you decide to eat something. It does not leave a stain behind like the YSL one.
The ingredients list is written on a transparent sticker on the packaging. I couldn’t read all the ingredients, but I saw 3 parabens among them. If you are looking for a natural product, this is definitely not for you.
I own the shade 300 Modern pink, which has this strawberry children’s medicine scent. I didn’t like it at first, but I got used to it. It’s possible every shade to have a different scent, but I couldn’t find any information.
This was the most nourishing lip oil out of all the lip oils I’ve tried. It gives you a better lip care than the YSL one, but the ingredients list is far from perfect.
In a nutshell
Rimmel Oh my gloss! oil tint is a good option for those of you who are curious to try the lips oils, but don’t want to spend a lot of money. I definitely recommend buying a cheaper option, because I personally don’t like the concept. Rimmel Oh my gloss! oil tint is similar to the YSL lip oil when it comes to the formulation, but the ingredients are not that great.
