Rimmel Apocolips in Stellar
OK so I know that by now people who regularly read beauty blogs are probably sick of seeing these reviewed but I just had to post my review of Rimmel's latest lip release, Apocolips. I bought two of these, and actually bought a nude shade but thought I would post about my favourite of the two, Stellar. The lip lacquers come with does foot applicators (which I have to say, meant I found applying this bright shade a bit trickier in terms of keeping the application precise, but it wasn't too bad)
Stellar is a fab bright poppy red/pink shade which looked amazing once applied. The lacquers are really pigmented and creamy to apply. It sat comfortably on my lips for a few hours and the colour payoff was excellent. I did find it more moisturising that say a matte lipstick formula (what I loved is that it was not at all sticky or gloopy) but my only critique of this was that if reapplied a lot to unmoisturised lips it could be a teensy bit drying. It's not a huge issue though and a slick of lip balm pre application will sort that out.
Lovers of lipstick will adore this product and there are currently 8 shades to choose from. All priced at £5.99 which I think is a real bargain as this product is fab. Have you tried them yet? If so, which colour is your favourite?
