What Rimmel says ‘The earth-shattering lip lacquer from Rimmel London combining the intense colour of lipstick with a lacquer like shine, Apocalips Lip Lacquer is an explosive make-up phenomenon that represents the end of colour as you know it. Packed with pure colour pigments, its lusciously creamy, conditioning formula promises a never-before combination of colour, shine and comfort that last and last. Available in 8 shades, from subtly sexy to spectacular.

My Opinion
This new craze of liquid lipsticks is very popular right now and the Apocalips are proving to be very popular in the blogging world. I really like the shade range as there is something for everyone. I picked up Big Bang as I am trying to experiment with bright colours and this is a bright red.I love the name of the product as it is very different and so is the packaging.I like how it has an interesting lid and that you can see the colour of the product through the packaging. They are very pigmented and apply really well.It leaves a glossy finish but unlike lipgloss it isn't sticky. This is actually quite hydrating which surprises me. I find that you need to blot it once you've applied it. It does go onto the teeth but this stops after a 5 minutes of wearing it. The staying power is pretty impressive it lasts a good couple of hours in which time it fades but it leaves a really nice stain on the lips. I have heard that these work better with a lip liner underneath which I need to invest in. I think I might get one of the MUA ones as they are only £1. I am quite impressed with this and am very glad that I picked it up. I don’t think I’ll be going out to get any others though as I prefer lipsticks.

Have you tried any Apocalips?
