Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquers are a hybrid lip product which combines the pigmentation of lipstick and texture of lip gloss. These lip lacquers are intensely bold, pigmented and are not for the faint hearted!
ABOUT:It’s the End of Colour as you know it!
The intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin-smooth shine. It’s neither a lipstick nor a gloss… It’s BIGGER than both!
PRICE:7.62$ or around rs.650.
PACKAGING: It comes in a tube packaging and has a wand with a sponge tip similar to lip gloss packaging. Applicator picks and spreads the product easily.
The applicator has a little well in the centre that collects the product so you can apply it with only one or two dips.
SHADE:Nova is a bright blue based pink.It is such a shade that will come out differently on all skin tones.On me,it looks like blue based mauve and it accentuates my olive undertones a lot.
MY VIEWS: The formula is non-sticky, incredibly feather light, silky smooth, packs a punch of colour and uber pigmented to the point where one light-handed swipe will achieve a completely opaque and ultra glossy finish! They are luscious creamy, very comfortable to wear and super hydrating at the same time. Though, I find the scent quite unpleasant and reminiscent of plastic and chemical but it disappears after a while.
Once set, it doesn’t transfer much. It stays on me for good 4 hours with meal in between. Though after meals it fades a bit. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable but yes you might need to reapply it after 2 hours, since the color gets bit uneven.
RECOMMENDATION: I really like the formula,finish and feel but the shade washes out my skin tone a bit.Other than that,I love it and would definitely try other shades from the range.
