Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer’s – Lip swatches and review

Finally I have swatches of all of the new(ish) Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer’s, I had actually been waiting for these to hit our shores for a while and they have been on high rotation in my bag since they arrived in my letterbox.

Generally  I get 3 hours out of the lighter shades and about 4-5 hours on the brighter ones, with shine really fading at 1-2 hours for both. I would say this is average for me with a liquid lip type product that isn’t a long wearing formula. These do leave lip marks, but not all the colour comes off at once.  The Apocalips feel smooth and rather light on the lips, very comfortable to wear, and as long as I don’t apply too much I don’t have any feathering issues. Great bendy doe foot applicator with a little dip in the middle that actually does scoop out the perfect amount for me. They retail at $15.95 and I have seen them on sale at Priceline quite a bit so you’ll no doubt get them cheaper.

The below swatches are straight from the tube with the applicator. (more…)

illamasqua motto eye brow cake

 

Motto Eye Brow Cake is a warm taupe brow colour perfect for non golden toned blondes. Applied with a light stroke it effortlessly fills in brows for a fuller look, but applied with a mixing medium it gives a very defined brow. The compact also has a handy mirror in the lid for application anywhere. This has been my go to brow colour for a few months now and I’ve found it perfect for my colouring.

 

The rest of the products are from the Theatre of the Nameless Collection.
