Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Luna | Review and Swatches
I'll be the first to admit I'm not one of those girls that has a deep obsession with lip products, but after seeing the Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquers plastered all over my blog feed I just had to try them. I actually firstly bought Celestial but my friend lost it after I'd only worn it once (I haven't forgotten Becca!), but I'd actually always had my eye on Luna, I just wasn't sure if it would be too bright for me, and how wrong I was. Luna's peachy coral colour compliments my skin tone perfectly, and although it is quite an out there shade, I feel like I can wear this as an everyday lip without feeling too over the top. It's such a perfect shade for the Spring and Summer months as well, the perfect pairing for a floral dress and sunglasses.
The lip lacquers are effectively a liquid lipstick, that glides on effortlessly, giving a gorgeous, and slightly glossy but natural finish. The dipped shape of the applicator, means that the most product is applied to the center of the lips, a god send for an amateur lipstick applicator like me, saving me from getting it all over my face. Impressively, Apocalips last with a glossy finish for around two hours, and then leave a lovely stain to the lips lasting for around a further three hours. However I do think that the lasting power does depend on the shade, although Luna does last for a great length of time, brighter shades from the range like Big Bang (orangey red) and Apocaliptic (blue based fuchsia) would last longer and leave a deeper stain on the lips.
As a light shade, I have found that Luna does pick up on chapped lips, but nothing so severe that it can't be fixed with a quick sweep of lip balm before application. I'm so happy I took the plunge and left my comfort zone when it comes to lip colour, Rimmel Apocalips really are worth the hype. Now I just need to decide which shade I'm going to buy next!
Have you tried the Rimmel Apocalips, do you think they live up to the hype?
