Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer - Big Bang - $25.00 in store or $9.25 off ASOS :)
After seeing the gorgeous swatches on many UK blogs, I could not wait to get my hot little hands on Rimmel's Apocalips range of Lip Lacqures. Rimmel claims these lacquers have the intense pigment of a lipstick but with the shine of a gloss that 'lasts and lasts', and I'm with them on that one!
I picked this colour as well as Celestial up off ASOS - by doing
this the two products combined came to less than I would pay for one here in NZ
Big Bang is a pure, true red with more blue undertones than orange, which is ideal as it helps to prevent the nasty yellow teeth look that some more warmer toned reds can give. I was sceptical at first because I thought with these being so glossy that they would slide right off your lips but in no way do they do that. The formula settles in to a matte finish after about 30mins wear and then lasts forever, which I really like. I wear this to work and it stays put for a good 8hours minus one touch-up after eating. I find the application wand a little difficult to use but my best advice would be that less is definitely less when applying this product as an overload could get very messy! Also, a lipliner is important to stop the not so hot feathering look.
Big Bang is super pigmented and lately I have been pretty partial to a good red lip - this is 100% my go-to red lippy!
Have you tried any of the Apocalips Lacquers? Do you feel they live up to the huge hype?
