Who doesn’t love a long lasting lip gloss? Rimmel London’s new Stay Glossy ($4.99) promises a full 6 hours of savory shine. Unlike some other glosses that are formulated primarily with mineral oil, Rimmel uses very water proof materials like polybutene and polyisobutene which helps maintain gloss after oils wear off. The only downside is that these materials can make a formula feel stickier.
Additionally, the product claims to provide “double the moisture instantly.” This is interesting since there’s no water in the formulation. I suppose they could be using a Ski-Con device to measure skin conductivity which tracks well with how much moisture is in the skin. Regardless, there’s enough emollient material in the formula to make your lips feel soft.
