So I've spoken quite a bit already (major understatement) about these wondrous new lip products from Rimmel, in fact you can see a full range of swatches in this blog post and watch me talk about them in this beauty haul video. But hey you can't ever talk about good lip products too much, right? That's what I'm hoping anyway as today I'm giving my very favourite Apocalip a post all of it's own. Don't worry Stellar, you've earned it...
|Rimmel Apocalips | £5.99 from Boots|
If you don't know already Rimmel Apocalips are a hybrid product called a lip lacquer which mixes the best parts of lipsticks, glosses and stains together to form a bit of a wonder product. They come in a range of eight amazing shades but I was instantly drawn to 'Stellar' as it's such a vibrant neon coral colour with reddish pink undertones and I didn't own anything like it. As you can see from the swatch the pigmentation is incredible as it gives you a full coverage of colour in one swipe and I also find the colour in the bottle to translate exactly on the lips. Despite the opaque coverage this is certainly not a matte or drying product as it goes on very wet, like a glossy cream with a high shine finish and then dries down to a stain that feels comfortable on the lips and also lasts for very a long time making this a great dinner or all dayer/nighter product. My only qualm is that sometimes the actual product is a little too wet making it a bit messy, so I would wait a while before indulging in any activities, such as, erm, kissing and things...the applicator does make applying the product very easy though and I also love the packaging and the branding and all for only £5.99! Well done Rimmel.
Have you fallen for the Apocalips yet?
I've been nursing a bit of a sore head today as I may have indulged in one too many cocktails last night, but it was totally worth it as one of them contained actual oreos and I had such a fun time dancing around like a loony toon. I then remedied this hang over by going for a pie today with the girls at a place called 'The Hop'. I'd highly recommend it if you're ever in Sheffield as it was so yummy and definitely made me feel better for my strenuous night in with Rosie watching the Katy Perry movie and discussing her new Boots purchases, girly housemates are the best sometimes!
Have a great Friday night everyone,
