I bought two of these glosses with a BOGO coupon and I have to say I am impressed. I got "Pink Protect" and "Purple rescue" (just to try something different). I like the light texture of these glosses and the pigmentation of Purple Rescue is super. Pink Protect is a great everyday peachy pink color. The added SPF is of course a plus. The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the color selection. There weren't many colors I would go for or they seemed too similar to one another. I would likely re-purchase Pink Protect as an everyday shade.

Eh...mediocre gloss. I was interested in it because it was new. I bought the color "Pink Protect" which is kind of a salmon pink with shimmer. I noticed there were several shades that looked pretty much exactly the same, especially in the pink family. Why bother making 5+ pink "colors" that are only vague variations of each other? Anyway...on lips, the color is sheer. Slight shimmer. Sheer and slightly shimmery...yawn. Just like any other pink gloss, really. The texture is smooth and not really sticky, so that's good. Has decent lasting power. The main thing that makes this a non-repurchase for me is the scent...it has the same strong, weird scent that the Moisture Renew lipsticks have, sort of like a baby powder scent. I like the scent of baby powder, but not on my lips. The applicator reminds me of NYX Diamond Sparkle lip gloss, kind of a long, bent spatula or something. Pros: Cute packaging, not sticky, contains SPF. Cons: Strong unpleasant fragrance, sheer color payoff, uninteresting shades to choose from. Overall, not a horrible gloss but I won't repurchase unless they change the scent. There are several glosses out there with similar prices that are much better.

I bought 2 of these with a buy one get one free coupon, in Hydra Beige and Mauve Renew. The colors look so beautiful in the tube. But on my lips--not much color at all. I applied them each separately, then when I realized they looked almost the same, I reapplied them with the mauve on the top lip and the beige on the bottom. Seriously couldn't tell the difference. I tried layering them on to get more color, didn't make much difference at all. Very, very poor color payoff. So if you don't like much color from your lip gloss, then this might be ok for you. I want some color. There is shimmer to them, but very subtle. By the way, I am very fair with lightly pigmented lips, so it's not a matter of the color not showing up enough because of highly pigmented lips.
Also on the negative side, the sponge applicator is quite poor. I wonder how long it will last. Seems loose and wobbly when you apply compared to other sponge applicators I have used on other glosses.
On the positive side, it seems fairly moisturizing. Not sticky. And it has sunscreen. So I will keep these, I guess they will be ok in the summer for a more "no-makeup" look, while having the protection of the sunscreen. I definitely would not repurchase.

Rimmel's Moisture Renew Cream lipgloss feels great on,not sticky.
An added bonus that it has sunscreen. #525 Sos Red,is a sparkly red. The color is similar to Nyc's Liquid lipgloss in #556U1 Sheer Rudy,except Rimmel's Sos Red is a tad darker.
This is an average gloss,I am not thrilled with applicator. I wish this was in a brush applicator form,this sponge applicator seems to wipe away my lipstick that I applied before.
Update: 4/19/2012 I got rid of this gloss,the color is just too "flat" for me.I am not thrilled with cream/non-shimmery glitter glosses

I purchased purple rescue and fuschia therapy and really like them. They are not as bright as they seem in the tube, but give great color pay off. They are very smooth and don't dry my lips out. Plus I found a coupon for buy one get one free, so that made my day.

Okay, so I will say that I never actually purchased one of these and here's why: I swatched one of the shades (tube had already been opened by someone) and noticed the very watery texture and sheerness of it. I tried out "rose cocoon" and just didn't like the look and feel of it. I also noticed the poor color selection - many of them are very identical to one another, which is strange. They're not thick or sticky at all, which tells me the staying power must not be very good. I didn't smell it, so I can't comment on scent. They just seem to be more full of glitter than color. Also, I noticed that some of the tubes had like...oil at the very top. Definitely won't be purchasing these.

i just purchased this from ULTA, and its definately going back tomorrow... after multiple times swiping it on, there is little to no color.. its watery in texture, and very slippery.. i love sticky lipglosses.. its the only way i can keep color on my lips.. this is a waste of money, and i wish Rimmel had come out with something better than this joke of a lip product..

Holy Sunscreen Smell, Batman!!!! I'm surprised the first review didn't mention anything about that. This is going straight back to Ulta . . . .as soon as I tell you the good things about it. Yes, there are good things.
Color is beautiful (mauve something). Is a rosey-MLBB color w/light, light shimmers. Texture is light, not sticky. Similar to Revlon SL lipglosses. Applicator is that new spatula type that is on the new Revlon Colorburst lip glosses. Price was $5.99 at Ulta. Color selection is very nice. Nude, Berry, Reds, Pinks, etc. Something to please everyone. SPF15 is a nice touch, too.
I *may* try another one of these glosses to see if I just got a dud. I really liked the color, feel and everything else but the scent/smell/flavor is way too overwhelming.

I can't say enough about these! I spotted them last night at my ULTA, and really debated whether or not to get one. I'm SO happy I did. I picked up the Pink Protect color (a light pink-peach shade). I am beyond amazed with these. They actually DO feel moisturizing! They offer very creamy, smooth color. I believe that all colors have a little shimmer - but it is just that, a LITTLE shimmer - not sparkly, glittery, etc. I am so so happy with this. Please see pics for details!
EDIT: I have since gone back for the purple color, and it is gorgeous - especially with green eyes! I am also planning to get the deep red one. These are my new HG lipgloss!!!
