I was looking for Eastend Snob, but it was out. I'm glad I bought this one. It's a very pretty sheer and shimmery nude.

A muttering derelict standing outside the new market just told me I looked very nice in this lip gloss. It's an apricot-y peach nude. Takes a very light hand because it is FROSTY!!!!! But my neighbor is correct. This is a "she's so hot she's making me sexist" kind of lip gloss. No joke. I'm wearing it with Milani Peachy Peach eyeshadow and MAC Blacktrack - I look like a 14 year old prima ballerina, in a good way. In fact, this is everything I wanted NARS Barbarella to be. However, there's got to be something acrid and toxic about this formula to make them want to cover it up with the "Hairy Buffalo puke" smell. (PPP, v. strong yellow undertones)

I agree with a few of the other reviewers on here. I purchased this lipgloss years ago and LOVED it. It was a sheer, peach color that lasted relatively long for a lipgloss. However, they re-formulated the product and changed the color. Now, it's sort of a white peach-y color that washes me out. Disappointment.

I have this in Eastend snob too and I have to say I like it better cuz it gives me a more nudey pink color. Essential is more brown tone but it doesn't really play down my reddish lips. I like it for just a quick gloss that doesn't require much work or thought. Its a cute lil light pink/brown lipgloss. I dunno if i'd buy it again cuz i like eastend snob better but i think it matters on your skintone & how it looks on you

You know what I hate? When a company makes a perfectly good product, and then changes it altogether, after you've fallen in love with the original.
When Rimmel first hit the market and put out this gloss, it was perfection: it was thick, it was so glossy that it made my lips look wet, and it had no scent whatsoever. I got the most fabulous porn star (LOL) frosty peachy pink lush lips using this stuff.
They reformulated this gloss some time ago, and when they did, I knew I'd never use it again. They added a creamsicle scent, they thinned out the formula, and it just wasn't the same product I'd come to love.
I must be a glutton for punishment, because even though I KNEW they'd done this to the formula, I couldn't help but admire the color any time I walked by a Rimmel display, and I ended up buying it AGAIN, hoping for a change back to what it once was. SUCH a bad move. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did: they changed the doe-foot applicator to a skimpy little SPONGE applicator! Grrrrr. So now, in addition to having a crappy scent and no staying power, I can barely get anything off of the wand. Add to that, I think they've even changed the color a bit, because once I collected some product on the back of my hand, I finally had enough to put on my lips with my finger, and there was barely any pigment. Double grrrrrrr.
Rimmel, someone done told you wrong that this was a good idea. I've been burned twice, and that'll never happen again. This just screamed "RETURN ME." So I did (and yeah, I'm a little bitter LOL).

Wow! I'm in love with this gloss. Great texture/consistency, no offensive smell... and the best part, the color is EXACTLY what I've been looking for to achieve a nude-but-not-washed-out look. Sure, it's a little shimmery, but not in a tacky way. I have a much more expensive Vincent Longo gloss that's similar, wish I had known about this before I paid waaaay too much money for the VL.. It's everything I wanted Revlon's Nude Lustre and Bonne Bell's Cappuccino to be. The packaging is fine and the price is great. I will definitely buy this one again.

This is a beigish, nude, peachy colour. It's absolutely gorgeous! It actually doesn't wash me out due to the high level of shine and the peach colour. I think this is a beautiful gloss.

I really like this gloss. I picked this up on a whim, not really needing it, but read good things about it. The color of this gloss is a shimmery peach in the tube, and it pretty much comes out on my lips as such. No hidden colors. I love the wet look it gives me too. It's a very "sexy" gloss, with high shine. I can't really explain the shade, but dare I say it's the perfect nude/peach/shimmer gloss on my lips? It's pretty good. The texture is nice, too. It isn't as thick as MAC lipglasses. This gloss would be perfect if the texture was maybe a hair thicker. Because it is a little on the thin side, it doesn't last too long. The color really is pretty, though. There is a scent of orange in the gloss, but it isn't enough to turn me off completely. It isn't as bad smelling as the VS Sweet Talk l/g are, for example. I will buy again and maybe even try out some other colors.

As usual, Rimmel has come out with another great lip product. It's formulation is a bit sticky, but that probably makes it last longer. It's very sexy, either in day or evening... not too much for day, depending on where you are. If you're in a very conservative atmosphere, it may bring too much attention to the lips (I have full lips) -- but if you're comfortable with that, then this is great for day time. At night, it makes lips pop -- with a little liner, it's great.

I have very red lips and this tones them down to a pink-nude shade. It's a bit too frosty and not shiny enough for my taste. The formula is thin and watery and the fragrance smells like a cross between oranges and feet. I would not repurchase this.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This was another item included in the box from Yeyette! :)
I had used the Rimmel lip vinyls in the past before, but always thought they were too thick or sticky, even though I liked the colors.
Well, I decided to give it another shot, and... I LOVE IT!
As described below, Essential is a peachy-nude color with shimmer... great for an understated daytime look, or also in the evening with a smokey eye.
It's shiny without being plastic-y... is quite lightweight, and very long-lasting.
I would definitely purchase this and would also want to try some other colors!

I only recently started using Rimmel lip gloss, but I already love this shade. It looks browny orange in the tube, but turns out a lovely peach color that turns my dark lips a pinky bronze. It smells a heck of a lot like orange blow pops, but has no taste. This isn't high beam plastic shine like the name would imply, but after the gloss sinks in a litle bit, it ends up kind of wet, subtle, and very sexy (I think someone else described it as "porn star"). The gloss doesn't dry out my lips and is a bit moisturizing, and when wiped off leaves a little of the color and shimmer behind. It isn't sticky or gooey, and my hair doesn't stick to my lips when I'm wearing it.PACKAGING: Standard drugstore packaging. The label tends to wear off, so it doesn't look as pretty, but I find I don't really care.PRICE: $3.97 USD at Wal*Mart.PROS: Porn star lips. Hair doesn't stick. Dirt cheap. Can layer by applying, wiping off, applying ad infinitum.
CONS: Some may dislike scent.SUMMARY: This is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it product, but for the price you might as well try it.WILL buy again.

i recently tried rimmel glosses for the first time, and i'm very much impressed with the quality (esp for the price). this one in particular is a beautiful lightly frosty peachy nude. it's perfect for my super simple, natural look days (like today - liner and nars aae). i really like the thin consistency of this gloss; it goes on very smoothly and is not tacky and goopy feeling on my lips. it does have an orange creamsicle scent, but fortunately it doesn't bother me (i actually really like it). rimmel glosses are great buys!

I only started using these lip glosses recently, so I don't know about a formula change, but I do know I like the current formula. The gloss goes on smoothly and doesn't "grab" my lips or cake up. I wish there were more colours! "Essential" is a nice pale peachy shimmer, which is too light for me to wear alone, but great just in the centre of my lips over liner or lipstick. By the way, it is IDENTICAL to MAC "Impish" - I'm not usually a knockoff-hunter but a MAC SA tried to sell me Impish and gave me a card sample, and when I got it home I checked it against my Rimmel Essential and darned if they aren't exactly the same. :) (Note: while the two coloured glosses I own from this brand are fine, I bought a clear one and it leaked all over my makeup case. I have a feeling it was just that one... but to be sure, I'm keeping mine separate when they're new, till they've proved themselves safe!)

While I do like the color and smell of this gloss, the texture is just too thin. I have older lip vinyls that were thick and tacky, but this is thin and watery and wears off in less than an hour. I will not be buying again - I'll save my money for Prestige Vinylip or MAC lipglass.

decent but i wouldn't buy this shade again. it is a nude peach with maybe the slightest pink undertones, and then infused with chocolate shimmer. very unique color. i didn't like the texture of it...very thick...had to wait for it to "sink" in to feel the effect. also the taste and smell was a bit disturbing for my liking. overall not bad, creates a dark peachy nude lip..but definitly not a buy again.

Rimmel's Lip Vinyls are very similar to Mac's tinted lipglass texture wise, but they're much more cheaper and theres a limitied selection-(7ml). It had a funky smell to it which i didn't like, a subtle perfume-y plastic scent. I quite like these Lip Vinyls but not this particular shade, Essential is very frosty, i was first intrested in this color b/c i was told that it was almost an identical to Mac's prr lipglass, but its not! On my pigmented lips; it's VERY frosty and it's not really all that pink, it's slightly peachy but mostly a dark tan brownish tint. It gives oqaque lip coverage. I might repurchase other LipVinyls but not this particular shade.

This is my favorite Lip Vinyl...it's a nice peachy-nude on me. Great color and shine,plus it's long lasting.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This beige-brown looks too frosty and washes me out. The texture is great though, so I would try another color from this lipgloss line.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This looks pretty on my hand but not on my lips. I think my lips are too pale for this. On me it looks shimmery peachy-white. My mom got me this, good thing its cheap so i won't feel guilty throwing it away.
