Rimmel Underground Kiss Off! Lip Gloss


"Rimmell Kiss Off! Lip Glosses are smooth and slick- never sticky. Each shimmering shade features a brush applicator for excellent coverage."- Ulta description.

Those claims are very true... and I'm loving these glosses. Fun colors, a good variety and for goodness sakes a brush applicator! (I control the amount I want, not a stopper!)

However, when I use these glosses I get a flash back of a hair brush, cup of water, hair braiding, beads and some foil (before we got hip to putting hair beads on with rubber bands) and my mother saying "Hold your head down!  Turn your head this way!"

Why?

Because Rimmel Kiss Off! Lip Glosses are a dead ringer for the smell of this.........

*sigh*
Don't get all bougie on me and act like y'all never used this (my African American sisters, that is).  Oh your mama only bought you the yellow Indian Hemp Hair Food or Pink Moisturizer? Pshh, we had the big hair and bow-rette bin, yes I said bow-rette,  with beads, ties, combs, everything for a family with 3 girls.  We always had a jar of Blue Magic around that would inevitably get a hole in the bottom... that's the excitement of that 'new shatter-proof jar' claim. 
I don't know if I can live with Blue Magic lip gloss........

OMG!!!!I laughed so hard when I read your comments about the Blue Magic grease! It brought back memories of sitting on floor while my mother dipped the tip of the brush in this grease and then water and brushed up my frizzy ends. And you know when your mom would finish your hair, that Blue Magic would be all on the sides of your face..lol! Too Funny

@ makeupbliss yes and ears all shiny! LOL

@ avartsy: nooo! lol it's an awesome gloss. just do you like or can you tolerate the smell? lol

@ anon/muthasfynest: you silly.. you aren't cuz i remember all of that!

@ dao: really it doesn't smell bad. just for me that smell recalls a particular memory that i equate with hair and my childhood. if not, i would sing praises of finding a great drugstore lip gloss!

Yeah we use that on my sisters hair. That would be weird to have lip gloss smell like that.

Amina said...

LOL! My mother ONLY used pink lotion on my hair. And it probably has worse ingredients than blue magic to be honest.

Thanks for the review.
