Apocalips Lip Lacquer

Rimmel - Apocalips - Nude Eclipse - Lip products - Apocaliptic - Review - swatches
This is lots of different products rolled into one with the vibrancy of a lipstick, shine of a gloss and lasting power of a stain.  I love the extreme pigmentation which also lasts. When first applied you get a super pigmented gloss that coats your lips beautifully. The only issue I have was how precise you need to be when applying. The gloss does stain your lips and is hard to remove so you definitely need a mirror to apply so not that great for an on the go gloss!

The gloss lasts a good few hours and you are left with an even lip stain which is great as I find some stains can be quite patchy and uneven when they dry.
The gloss is not at all sticky, but does transfer quite a lot when eating or drinking. The foam applicator has an indentation so you get the right amount of product. This perfect for making sure your lips are evenly covered and stops any sort of mess that is often associated with glosses.
You get a full opaque coverage with only one coat. So although not the cheapest lip product it will last you ages.

Rimmel - Apocalips - Nude Eclipse - Lip products - Apocaliptic - Review - swatches
I have two shades one called nude eclipse which is a peachy nude colour. Its a beautiful shade but its hard to pull off. So not for people who struggle with nudes as the the tone can wash you out. It can leave you looking like the walking dead or like you have no lips. Yet if your a new lover like me. Is perfect for day to day or for adding a a nude lip to a smokey eye look.

Apocaliptic is my other shade and isn't a tall for the faint-hearted. A breathe taking bright pink perfect for showstopping lips. It looks zing on tanned skin so defiantly one for the holiday make up case. Yet the shade still looks beautiful on paler skinned beauties. So this is the shade to pick if you want to follow the bright lip trend of this summer.This shade will brighten even the dullest day.

Do you own any of these? What shades do you like the look of?

Lots of Love,
