Rave Review: Rimmel London Apocalips aka Show Off Liquid Lacquer11:08 AM
Rimmel Apocalips (known as "Show Off") lip lacquers were quite the buzz last summer, and now I know why. These liquid lipsticks are highly pigmented, shiny, and fairly long-wearing -- high-end qualities at a drugstore price of $4.99! You can't beat that. I picked up Comet and Luna; the cosmic names are a play on the Apocalips pun. I may be wrong but I think these are Walgreens exclusives. Swatches and more after the jump!
The applicator is different from your usual doe foot because it has a little well, which holds more product. One dip is thus more than enough for your lips. I also like that the caps have cuts in them
I only got 2 colors, because as you may know I am not a lipstick fan. US shades differ somewhat from their original UK counterpart, as you can read here. You can see swatches of all UK shades here.
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel, as seen below.
These lacquers, especially the darker shades, don't sink into the lines of the lips, and I find I can get away wearing them with chapped lips. Which I LOVE, because my lips are perpetually dry.
ProsOpaque, long-wearing lip lacquers with thoughtful packaging at a great price
Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquers retail for $4.99 USD at Walgreens. They're often buy-on-get-one-at-50%-off, so watch out for those deals!
