My relationship with lip products can be so love/hate. One day I'll love a lipstick but then I'll wear it the next day and prefer the lipgloss. However, Rimmel made me the perfect compromise, their Apocalips Lip Lacquers. I've always been a fan of the Collection 2000 Creme Puff's which although aren't as glossy, I like the lacquer long lasting effect that is slightly creamy and lipstick like.  When I did a feel unique haul after hearing SO much hype on these, I thought I'd use up a voucher and try it. I can firmly say I was easily persuaded by how good they are!

I did think it was one of them products, every blogger received from Rimmel therefore reviewed but I am quite convinced of the big coverage they had. I have Nova and Celestial as of the moment.

There are currently 13 shades in the range with purples, pinks, reds, corals and nudes! So far I've gone for more bold lip colours than nudes as I have a lot of basic pinks and with bold thicker lip products I like the bolder colour.

The lacquer is a thick gloss but not sticky, no horrible glitters or shimmers, and applies easily with the doe foot applicator.

The first colour I owned in the range was Nova, a bold deep pink, a dark bubblegum to be precise. This really suits my skin tone, its a very complimentary colour and doesn't have a sheen which I really like! This colour really suits basic eye makeup such as a shimmery champagne and brown, dark eyeliner then slick of this on the lips. A gorgeous colour!

The newest one to own is Celestial, this is more of a brown toned pink, which is something I havent owned in a long time. I used to hate brown toned lip colours on me but this is a great Winter colour, its deeper but still has the pink undertones which make it flattering especially for me.

These smell really nice too, a quite unique lip product smell, not typical vanilla but a quite fruity and warm scent which is quite impressive.

The packaging is sleek too, I love these as a lip product to have in the handbag, they look expensive when they are actually only £5.99 which is a complete steal! I'd like to keep adding to my collection over the next few months with most of the colours, I feel these are a great compromise for a fussy lip product wearer like myself! You can get these from boots, superdrug and feelunique.com!
