I’m loving Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquer right now. So much so that I just couldn’t help myself from stocking up on another three colours in the Boots 3 for 2 offer. Unfortunately Nude Eclipse was still out of stock in the three Boots stores I looked in so I purchased Stellar, Apocalyptic and Nova instead.
I had another £2 off lipstick or mascara voucher from my advantage card which meant three lip lacquers came in at just £9.98 instead of the usual £5.99 each. Bargain!
As you can see these three are pretty bright compared to the first batch of Apocalips lacquers I bought and I think they’ll look great with a tan come Summer.
The tones are slightly off in this photo which I blame on the lack of natural light that comes with Winter. In the flesh Stellar is a gorgeous bright orange toned red which is surprisingly wearable. Apocalyptic is a bright fushia pink which reminds me of MAC’s Girl About Town. I will swatch them side by side when I get a chance and see just how similar the two of them are. Finally there’s Nova a cutesy bubblegum pink.
Here they are swatched. Aren’t they beautiful?
I absolute love their creamy formula and having worn Big Bang and Celestial several times since I bought them I can happily say they have a 4 – 5 hour wear time and I can get through a standard day with only one touch up. If I’m totally honest I find them a tad drying, but nowhere near as bad as some of the lipsticks I’ve tried and nothing a slick of lip balm can’t cure.
If you haven’t seen it already I also swatched Luna, Celestial & Big Bang here.
