|Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Nude Eclipse £5.99 link|
I don't get it! Let's just jump right into it and put it out there. I don't understand the hype of this product. Maybe it's the colour I've got but I've swatched the other shades and I still don't get it!
The applicator is great, and it's really easy to use. You get the right amount of product on the wand, and the shape works with my lips at least.
The packaging is nice. I like the cap being all mis-shapen like a meteor and the faded black effect on the tube is gorgeous.
From my understanding, these are essentially meant to be liquid lipsticks, or a hybrid between glosses and cream lipsticks. I guess they are like that, but there isn't anything special about them that differentiates them from other products. If I wanted a gloss, I would get a gloss. If I wanted a creamy lipstick product I'd grab a lipstick or perhaps the cream puff lip creams from Collection.
They are pigmented but, this one at least, goes patchy on my lips, fades fast and just isn't worth the craziness that follows these things around.
