Hello lovely ladies !! We all simply can’t live without lippies . These days lip creams are inn trends and rimmel apocalips lip lacquer created a lot of buzz. I have apocalips lip lacquer in shade solstice.I am mostly into pinks and peach shades when it comes to lip colors because it somehow suits my skin tone.This time I thought of trying a different shade , more on a nud** side.
The intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin smooth shine.
- It’s neither a lipstick nor a gloss… It’s BIGGER than both!
- Long Live The Colour!
What the brand 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.
Price : 475 INR approx. for 5.5 ml
My take on Rimmel apocalips Lip Lacquer solstice-
So it comes in a sturdy black tube pack with a hint of color in the bottom which makes it better packaging in terms of identify the color correctly. It has a curved sponge applicator to apply lip color which is very good one to get the perfect finish.The consistency of lip lacquer is perfect that is its neither much sticky nor runny.Pigmentation is really good and it gives medium opaque finish in a single go (a big PLUS++). After application it gives a satiny shine to lips which I like a lot.
It takes a while to settle after application and stays for about 4-5 hours without meal or drinks.With drinks/meal it transfers a little bit which is ok for a gloss.
Speaking about the shade SOLSTICE.Its a mauve toned rose with fine peach shimmer or u can say light pink mixed with hint of brown :P. This color will be most suited for fair skin tones and talking about my skin tone I cannot wear it bare face , a little makeup is required other wise I end up looking washed up and dull. I have slightly pigmented lips so lip liner is must for me whenever I use such colors. Other colors from this range are more opaque than this particular shade.
