Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer Review

Ciao Bella!

I recently purchased two shades of the Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer , after hearing raving reviews about the new lip product. I purchased the bold bright red Big bang and also the subtle pink shade Galaxy

These lip lacquers have definitely exploded onto the beauty scence, they are 'must have' lip product of the moment. Rimmel states that the lacquers has a intense in rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin smooth shine.  The new lacquer range includes shades such as the rosy pink Nova,  bright red Big Bang and coral pink Stellar .

Left: Galaxy  & Big bang  
Right: Big Band & Galaxy

I team them with a complementing  lip liner , so that the highly pigmentated  colour lasts all day on my lips. I am using two No7 precision lip pencils in the red shade 'fire' to accompany big bang and 'Blush' to wear with galaxy.

My  favourite shade out of the two shade i purchased has to be Galaxy as i feel i can wear it everyday without my makeup looking too strong. They don't dry out your lips and leave them feeling soft and hydrated. Fingers crossed they bring out more shades, as i feel Big Bang and Galaxy were the only shades that suited my skin tone.

Left: No7's  'Blush' lip liner & Rimmel's 'Galaxy' lip lacquer
Right: Rimmel's 'Big Bang' & No 7's 'Fire' lip liner

Pros: High pigmented colour, Affordable, Last a long time on lips when used with a  lip liner, leave lips soft

Cons: Easily smudged, Not that many colours in the range

Bottom line: Would repurchase again if they bring out a more varied colour range for every skin type

Whats your favorite shade?

I love these lip products, I think they look so amazing on. They're very similar to the L'oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine stains but about half the price which it great :) I like the feel of the L'oreal on my lips more but I really enjoyed your Review :) x
