Rimmel Oh My Gloss! Review

Hi Everyone!

I was in Boots the other day, watching their Moisture Renew Lipstick in ‘Back To The Fuscia’ having seen it recommended when I noticed something I’d not seen before on the bottom shelf of the stand.

Rimmel have launched a new line, in the form of their ‘Oh My Gloss!’  lip glosses.


The sales associate I spoke to was lovely. You may know that I have a LOT of allergies. Boots hadn’t received the ingredients card for these lip glosses yet & she went out of her way to help me. I have found that, even after checking ingredients, I can have a reaction so I chose to just pick up one of these glosses - I can always go back for more, right!?!

There are 10 shades in this line & I chose ‘Stay My Rose’. There were no testers, so I went on guess work for this choice & regret it. While there is nothing wrong with this translucent light pink with flecks of golden shimmer in, I prefer more pigmentation from my glosses.

Fast forward a few days & I popped into my local Superdrug to see if they had any testers... They had 3. 2 of these were in 'Stay My Rose' - Not helpful! The other was 'Purrr... Glossy Cat'. I swatched them side by side for you & I have to say, there's not much difference!


I found lots of Makeup Revolution goodies & as Superdrug had a 3 for 2 I picked up 'Twinkle Twinkle'. This shade makes me think of a toned down version of the MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus lipgass - a gloss that, while I loved the colour, was VERY sparkly & I knew I'd never wear. This gloss, like 'Stay My Rose' is not as pigmented as it is in the tube. Out of the two, I definitely prefer 'Twinkle Twinkle'.

'Stay My Rose'

'Twinkle Twinkle'

The formula is comfortable to wear without being particularly sticky & is applied with a wand. Rimmel claim this gloss lasts 'up to 6hrs'. NB 'up to' not 'min'. I find this gloss lasts approx. 2hrs, but it's comfortable feeling lasts long after the gloss has worn off the lips. This is probably due to the inclusion of aragon oil & vitamin E. Some of the glitter particles do remain on the lips after the product has worn away & they look more obvious at this point. Something to bear in mind.



I love the design of the packaging, this was probably what caught my eye first. It’s very sleek & reminiscent of the Givenchy Very Irresistible fragrance bottle.

I like this gloss, which costs £5.49 & will definitely be swatching other shades to see if there are some with more pigment in the line. You can purchase these from both Boots & Superdrug.

Have you seen these yet?
What is your favourite lipgloss of all time?

Pretty! I'm not actually a big gloss person but these look pretty and quite sheer.

I'm a big fan of Rimmer and will have to check these little beauties out. Will be testing the swatches first, as you recommend :)

They're definitely worth it, especially if you find a colour you love! Xx

They are pretty, though I'd make sure you can swatch before buying to see the true colour you'll be getting. I really like the moisturising feel they give & are nowhere near as sticky as some glosses! Xx

These are really pretty and affordable glosses :) I saw them in Boots but hesitated to pick them out, definitely have to go backhand give them a swatch!

I featured 'glossaholic' from this range in my post today :) I bought it on monday and I really like it, but the colour is a little more sheer than I was hoping for. They're a great formula for the price though!
Love Holly x

I've just read it! Thinking I might have to swatch that lipstick when I go to Boots to pick my prescription up! I completely agree with you about the formula - it's lovely! I swatched a few shades today & even the red is quite sheer & seemed to loose pigmentation as I was walking round! I definitely prefer 'Twinkle Twinkle' out of the two I have! Xx

Ahh I'm such a sucker for lip glosses - love the shades you've chosen, they're pretty but easy to wear! The perfect Summer lip choice if you ask me xx

Thank you, they have some lovely shades in the range. I like the look of the red one too, I think it would be perfect as an every day option with it being sheer! Xx
