I wanted to do a quick review of a product I recently purchased of ASOS – Apocalips Lip Lacquer. I purchased two shades – Luna and Big Bang. These are shades that are unavailable in Australia so if you want to pick these up its best to head to ASOS. I got mine on sale for around $7 AUD. But when I last checked they were around $11 AUD, you can pick them up from here. So lets get straight into the review..
So basically this product is marketed as a liquid lipstick which provides a satin smooth shine. I’ve never tried out anything like this so I was super excited to give these a whirl.
The doe-foot applicator is amazing, it ensures that plenty of product can be applied without the need to dip back in. All of my swatches were off one dip! They are super pigmented and provide a full covered lipstick look without being too sticky. It’s honestly an amazing formula which does really make you feel as though you are wearing lipstick but at the same time providing that smooth shine.
Luna: I have to admit, I was a bit shocked when I first put this on my lips. I thought it would come out a nude/peach colour from online swatches but then when I put it on I would say it’s fairly orange. It’s definitely a wearable orange and has grown on me completely but nethertheless I was surprised. I definitely think it’s a bit bolder then the classic nude/peach lips so I am excited to wear this to work and see how it goes. Here is a swatch of it on my lips..
Big Bang: Big Bang is definitely a fair name for this amazing product, boy does it have a bang! Its so pigmented and bright red and I love it. Although you do have to be careful because it does stain. It applied with a lip pencil you should be fine but it definitely a high maintenance colour which is what you expect with bright red. Here is a swatch of it on my lips, excuse the dodgy application..
What I like:
- highly pigmented
- easy to apply
- the applicator
- not sticky
- easy to wear
- neat packaging
What I don’t like:
- unless experiences using lip liners, bright shades tend to bleed
- can smear
- can stain your lips
Overall I am very impressed with Rimmel’s formula for the Apocalips Lip Lacquer. Being half gloss it’s easy to apply, but also being half lipstick its super pigmented. As someone who isn’t really confident with applying lip liner I did find it hard to use Big Bang as it was so bright and it was easy to make a mess of it. But to anyone who wants a gloss with an extra kick this is your go to. Go pick one up today, you can pick them up at ASOS with the shades “Big Bang” and “Luna” or if you’re not an online shopper and are happy to look at other colours, Priceline has them for $15.95.
