Rimmel Apocolips - Big Bang, Stellar & Nova.

I know you are probably sick to death with hearing about these product's but I've been really enjoying them so I thought I'd share my views on them too!

They are lip lacquers, like lipsticks but look like lip glosses. They go on smooth and have a satin like texture (this is the lip gloss like part) but have all the pigment of a rich deep lipstick and dry with a semi-matte finish. This formula makes them so amazingly comfortable to wear, as long as you don't apply too much or you'll have a very gloopy mouth (not attractive) but it makes wearing bright colours that maybe before you might of been afraid of wearing a lot easier! A lot of ladies live by saying you must wear a lip liner under everything that goes on your mouth, i'm not one of those people but for this product if you're gonna bam out a bright colour and you're gonna be drinking/eating I would say a lip liner is gonna make you feel a bit more secure, well it does me anyway!

Big Bang 
THE colour of the collection in my opinion. It's a beautiful rich deep red that has been compared a lot to Mac's Ruby Woo.

 A beautiful coral/pink/red shade. This is so bright (almost neon but in a sassy way) but such a lovely colour.

This is a really pretty lilac pink shade, less in your face than the other two and very wearable. Perfect for everyday.

My mug - sporting Big Bang (yes I am in my dressing gown haha)

These are brilliantly hydrating, so if you're looking for a slightly matte finish but can't handle the dryness of a lipstick you should give these a go! I got mine on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots (this offer is still on!) so they cost me a grand total of £12 which I think is brilliant value for what they are. As I've said a LOT over the past few months Rimmel is fast becoming my favourite make up brand, they seem to be on point with everything they bring out and the best part is I don't feel like they are getting too expensive either.

Have you tried them? What are your favourites?

Thanks for reading.
