NEW! RIMMEL SHOW OFF LIP LACQUERS

!!!!!!!!! YOU. GUYS. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been waiting for these to be released in America for what feels like absolute ages. FINALLY the US has the equivalent of the Rimmel Apocalips. I found mine at my local Walgreens (and wasn't able to find them at CVS or Rite Aid) for $4.99 each. Pretty well priced and the display will still say 'Apocalips' so you can still look for that! The only difference is the title on the package.

From L to R: Apocaliptic, Big Bang, Nova, Stellar and Luna
close of up the name label


I got the colors Luna, Stellar, Big Bang, Apocaliptic and Nova. All of the colors are light and smooth on the lips. The smell is pleasantly sweet to me but I have heard that other don't exactly care for it. However, the smell fades very quickly. The unfortunate part of these guys is that they don't exactly last as long as a lipstick so it makes it harder for me to call them liquid lipsticks. They are going to be pretty close, though. They tend to cling to my dryness when I wear them to work when I'm not able to keep myself hydrated for an elongated period of time. So keep that in mind but also know that if you're in a situation where you're going to be able to upkeep then you should be set!

My standout favorite of the group is definitely Luna. I wasn't expeccting to like it as much as I did but it's such a wearable, light orange color. Which is unique. I like unique.

The consistency of the product reminds me a loooot of the L'Oreal Caresse lipsticks. The applicator is pretty similar as it's a bit bendy and.. soft. Odd. But great at applying the product.

Definitely go check these out! I like them a lot and for the price, you can't lose!

  1. I bought the Apocalips in Nova on Asos back in April and still haven't used it! Whoops! I'll definitely have to give it a try sometime this week though :) These all look lovely on you!

    2. I know! It's because I got it the same week as I got 2 other big orders of makeup in the mail so it kind of got put away and forgotten about :( but I am going out tonight so I'm gonna wear it!
