Rimmel Stay Glossy Timeless Allure Review
Autumn at the Lake Bear Lake Reserve

I’ve tried it all, it seems. I love makeup and “girly stuff”! I’ll be sharing my product reviews with you and would love your feedback on what I should try, too!

Today I’m looking at Rimmel Stay Glossy Timeless Allure.

Boy, I’m so on the fence about Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss… But here goes! I bought this a while ago at a big-box store after reading online about how awesome it is. I love finding a makeup deal! I purchased shade 540 Timeless Allure. It’s a beautiful, deep berry color with a little bit of sparkle. It is semi-sheer, but you can build it up for a more opaque look. Rimmel claims this has 6-hour staying power. I’ll just tell you right off the bat that that is not true according to a number of other reviews I read online… My experience: if you’re careful, you can get maybe 2 hours—maybe.

I must confess I’m not a huge fan of glossy lip products. Unless we’re talking Maybelline’s Kissing Potion in rollerball form from the 70’s. Then I’m all in! I’m a sucker for nostalgia! But back to Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss—it feels sticky to me, but it is a lipgloss. So, there’s that to deal with. Also, I’m not sure how long-wearing this is because I don’t like the way it feels on my lips, so I usually end up wiping it off after about ten minutes. The smell is definitely not my favorite makeup scent. I didn’t notice it after it was on my lips for a little while though.

Here’s what I do like about it. It’s a really pretty color. The applicator wand is really nice. It’s kind of flat and slightly curved; it’s firm and not floppy. This makes application very easy. When I want a glossy look, I plan to layer it over a matte berry color lipstick. I think that will look fabulous; plus, I think it will improve it’s staying power.

It’s a really pretty color. The applicator wand is really nice.

Frankly, I have had this awhile and rarely use it. I just can’t overlook the sticky or the smell. I also really don’t love the way my lips feel when I wear it. So, for me this is not a “find.” To be quite honest, if I knew where my receipt was, I’d probably take it back. I’m not one to usually have unused makeup lying around. Out with the old, and in with the new!

I give Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss a 2 out of 5 because the color is great, but I just can’t get on board with so much of it. Probably just me. If you’re into lipgloss, you might enjoy this. Just don’t expect the 6 hours of wear time they say it will deliver.

…for me this is not a “find.”

Bonus Tip: I would be remiss to not tell you that they make a black lip color in this line called Black Diva! How fun is that? If you need a black lip color for Halloween, Black Friday, or just because you are a Fashion Forward Diva, Rimmel’s Black Diva has got you covered. Enjoy!
