Rimmel Apocalips – £5.99
I thought I’d mix it up and review these well loved lip lacquers today. I’d love to say it’s completely coincidental that most of my beauty reviews are lip products, but truthfully, they take up the biggest part of my make-up collection and I can’t go a week without buying a new lippy. Enough of this now.. this isn’t the diary of a lipstick hoarder, although I’m sure a lot of you could relate.
I normally stay well clear of these kind of products because they just look sticky and I’m more of a matte lip kinda gal, but I jumped on the bandwagon none the less. I was immediately drawn to the colour big bang because of the badass pigmentation, and just like all the others they have some serious colour pay off. However, just as I doubted they’re messy.. In fact, even more messy than anticipated. Safe to say, I stopped using them in the fright of looking like a clown. I learnt a few tricks like using the back of the applicator and less product on it, which makes a huge difference, especially for the lighter shades, unfortunately the brighter shades still get everywhere.
I’m really trying to love these products and although I can’t get enough of Nude Eclipse (looks amazing with a dark smokey eye), the bright red just isn’t practical. I’m quite shocked at all the hype and good reviews I’ve read, really ladies? whats your secret?
PS – Sorry the photo quality isn’t great, I’m still in the process of trial and error with my camera. I was considering investing in an upgrade but it just seems like a waste, at least until I learn to use my camera to its full capability.
