I was ready to write this post a few weeks ago when they first hit the bloggin' world but I found myself on Boots website ordering three more.. whoops! So here I am writing about the six colours I have out of the eight available.
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer are basically a lipstick and a lip gloss in one, they have the pigmentation of a lipstick and the glossy shine of a lip gloss with out being sticky. They have a satin finish and feel amazing on the lips, there really creamy and do leave a stain on your lips, but if your after a lip stain then these arn't anything to write home about, your going to get these purely for there extremely rich pigmentation. The colour pay off from these little wonders is AMAZING!!! I have really dry lips so wearing lipstick sometimes is really a pain in zee behind, but wearing these is quick and easy because there super duper creamy so don't leave your lips dry or showing icky flaky bits on your lips.
I bought my six from Boots on line, there £5.99 each but because Boots is so kind and always have the three for two offer on I couldn't help picking up three each time I ordered them. I have the colours Stella, Celestial, Apocaliptic, Luna, Nova and Big Bang.
I personally love these, they do last a long time, they have amazing colour pay off and there so easy to apply with the doe-foot applicator, all in all I would highly recommend these :)
First up, Stella YES I HAVE SPELT IT WRONG ON THE PICTURE BUT I'M TO LAZY TO CHANGE IT. I do apologise. Stella is a bright Neon Coral Red. It's really different to any other Coral I have, normally Coral colours have a Orangey or Pinky undertone but with this one I find it has a Red undertone.
Celestial is like your lip colour but better, it's a Plumy Pinky colour and it looks extremely natural on the lips.
Apocaliptic is a really bright Fuschia Pink.
I have to be honest and say Luna is my least favourite of the six, it just sheems harder to work with, like it's less pigmented but the colour once it's on and you've worked with it for a little bit is amazing. It's a really neutral Orange nude colour and will look amazing in the Summer with a bit of a tan. This is the only one I feel you need a lip liner with.
Nova is a really beautiful subtle light pink with a slight purple undertone making it really wearable. Light Pinks never work on my but this one really does!!
Big Bang is that kind of Red that makes your teeth look super White and it's a proper Red Red with no Pink or Purple undertones to it.
I find the best way to apply these is to flip the doe-foot up side down and use the pointy-est bit to line your lips first then turn the doe-foot back and apply all over your lips, leave it for a little while to dry and apply a second layer. All the colours are really build able, making them all wearable during the day but I prefer a bright lip so some of them might not be to everyone's taste. One warning, this stuff will get on your teeth so I always stick a finger in my mouth close my mouth and pull my finger out, this takes off all the excess colour that will get on your teeth and also sounds really weird, ma bad!
Have you tried any of the Apocalips Lip Lacquer?
