Rimmel – Apocalips Lip Lacquer – Big Bang – £5.99 in Boots
I am super fussy when it comes to lip wear, as I find lip glosses far to sticky and lipstick far to dry. Luckily this product is a half way compromise to both a gloss & stick.
I am constantly in and out of my Vaseline pot, and my lips are often caked in Petroleum Jelly, but when I wear lipstick it seems to show every line and impurity on my lips. In all honesty, I find coral colours are the main offender for this, which is the biggest shame, as Coral suits my pale complexion. On a positive this product did not show any unwanted impurities. So I am now waiting for Rimmel Apocalips to release a coral coloured lacquer.
So on my lips in the photos, I am wearing ‘Big Bang’ which is a very daring bright red. I wore it on Saturday night and was really impressed with its stay-on power. I applied the lacquer only once when out and understandably that was after a few Jäger Bombs. During the night out, I didn’t feel bare on my lips as the lacquer stayed a prominent matte red. I am not to keen on the watermelon taste, but the scent wears off soon enough.
There are 8 lacquers available in the Apocalips range, from nudes, to rose blushes, to vampy dark colours. In my opinion it is well worth a trip to Boots. While in Boots, I also recommend the Rimmel Accelerator Endless Mascara!
