Review: Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Apocoliptic
26 Nov 2013
The Rimmel Apocalips have been around for quite a while now, and although I have had two in my lip collection I've always struggled to wear them. The formula is like a lip gloss on application but dries matte giving it a lipstick-style finish. They are so so pigmented, which is part of the reason I struggled to wear it initially. Its definitely an 'out there' shade and one that I'd only wear on a night out.
Because of the formula the lacquer has seriously great staying power and sits really comfortably on the lips throughout the day. The shade is a beautiful bright magenta shade which is literally opaque with one swipe. The applicator has a small well in the tip which helps the product to collect making it so much easier to apply. Although, I do find that I prefer to blot it slightly so I don't have a crazy amount of product to spread. Though the texture of the lacquer is really creamy making it so easy to apply.
Although this is a pretty out there shade for me, I do think it looks great on a night out for a really statement lip. Rimmel really do have some great lip products out at the moment don't you thnink? I definitely want to try out Big Bang from the Apocalips collection! Have any of you tried it?
