Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer - Nova

Rimmel Apocalips - Nova
Swatched on my lips & hand

Last week I bought the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer which were being sold on Facebook before its release in stores earlier this week. I bought Apocalips in the colour Nova which I would describe as a pink with blue undertones. Before receiving my order I had in my mind that it would be very similar to a lipgloss but Apocalips is very pigmented and more like a liquid lipstick with sheen rather than a lipgloss.

'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.' Taken from the Boots website

I am wearing Nova on my lips on its own but I think when I do wear it properly (when not in my pj's) I will try teaming it with a lip liner as a base. I have only had the lip lacquer on for an hour but I have found it to be quite moisturising and not drying as some liquid lipsticks can be. I do find the lip lacquer to be a little streaky on application and after as well. However, I do feel I need to wear the lip lacquer throughout for the duration of the day before I can fully give my opinions of the wear and finish on my lips. That being said to those that are interested I would recommend trying Apocalips as it is a very good quality product for a drug store brand and the pigmentation is very impressive too.

Yes, I am wearing my pj's in this pic with no make up on either but the lip lacquer lol
