I interrupt my regularly scheduled fashion week coverage to hype up an already hyped-up product even more! What’s the point of that you may ask? To encourage you to get out to your local drugstore and make a few purchases. I am here to do your lips a service and moving into fall, they are in desperate need of some Rimmel action.
Being that I live in the States, these are given the name Show Off; where in the UK and most other places (I believe) they go by the name Apocalips. But no matter what you call it, these lip lacquers are amazzzzzing!
Thinking of fall, I went for Aurora (a deep pink, or a pinky red depending on your perspective) and Celestial (a dusty rose). There are some shades of brown that did appeal to me but I didn’t want to go too crazy since this was my first time trying these babies out. I call them my babies, because they are my babies. I’ve adopted them and we are one happy little family with polished lips!
These have some serious pigmentation. They might have the packaging of a gloss, but these are by no means a gloss. These have full coverage and apply with just a slight hint of shear. And they stay put on your lips for a very long time, which is really a must for me. There’s nothing more annoying than loving your lip color but then have to constantly worry about reapplying it so you don’t get that muted stained, worn look (you know what I mean right?) that happens with many lipsticks. You can paint these on and be good to go for a pretty solid amount of time. It’s not all day but they definitely hold up very well.
All in all, a very impressive product. I don’t remember the exact price, but they’re probably around the $6-$7 range and very often you can find Rimmel products on 3 for 2, or buy one get another half off. Plus, if you are into coupons your Sunday paper should regularly run Rimmel coupons which would make them even more affordable. But they’re worth every penny and more!
Have you tried these? Let me know what you think and suggest other colors I have to try. They’re really beautiful for fall!
