I am well aware of the fact this these are really old news to anyone from the UK, but to us Canadians this is brand spanking new. I have been reading posts and watching videos about these for ages. I'd contemplated buying these Apocalips online many times but something felt wrong about ordering drugstore products that would eventually get to me. And so I waited. And waited. And finally my day has come!
This first shade Stellar is probably my favourite of the bunch. It's a true pink shade with a hint of a red undertone. It's bright without being too bright and just such a lovely summery shade.
Aurora is probably the more subtle of the three shades I purchased. It is a muted slightly mauve-ish pink tone. That would be suitable for pretty much every occasion. It's showing up quite bright but it really is a lot more muted than it's being depicted.
As you can tell, I love my pinks. They are definitely my most worn lip colour and the shade Apocaliptic is a welcomed addition to the collection. This is a really bright blue toned fuchsia. There is nothing subtle about this one. I absolutely love this. In fact I love them all.
Overall? These were definitely worth the wait. I am in love with these lip lacquers. Their wear times are excellent and they don't feel drying on the lips at all. I am absolutely going to go buy more the moment I can. Rimmel has really been pumping out some great products lately and this is no exception.
So far in Canada I have only just begun seeing these in Shopper's Drug Mart but I'm sure the joy will spread in no time. Definitely the best liquid lipstick I have ever tried and I cannot wait to buy more.
