Great formula. Not sticky or thick, nor gloppy. Love the applicator; it works very well with the product. Colour selection is mostly spring colours (or they were at my local drugstore) which isn't bad, but maybe a few deeper reds or plums could be added to the collection. These lip lacquers have great lasting power (5 hours aprox.) and dry with a lovely finish. I payed about 9 dollars for mine.

Lovely texture, not too gloopy, feels moisturising and lasts quite well; about 3-4 hours. Also to me the shade Galaxy is a bit of a dupe for MAC lipstick: Plumful if you sheer it out a bit! Have a look for yourself :)

Will buy again, nice shades.

I like these, but to be honest the colour selection is a little odd. A lot of orangey and nudes going on, if you want it more red type colours then this selection is not for you. The colours just seem a little weird and all over the place. The one proper red colour is Big Bang which is nice.

The pigmentation is great though, and they stay a long time. It starts very off very shiny on application but then fades yet the colour still stays which is great.

Absolutely in love with these they're so glossy and not sticky at all. They last ages too and there's always money off or 3 for 2 at rimmel so they're never very expensive

I have this in four shades - Solstice, Big Bang, Nude Eclipse and Luna. Overall I like the texture and they're very pigmented. If you tend to get dry lips, you'd probably need a lip balm under this since it'll seep into cracks. It's not drying though. I also don't mind the scent.

Solstice - medium-toned neutral pink. On me it's a MLBB colour. Good for daytime wear.

Big Bang - really really bright red - like, fire engine red. I wouldn't even dare to wear this out at night. Although admittedly I do prefer subtler colours, I do also like a bright lip from time to time but this is waaaaaay too much. I think it'd probably only be suitable if you're a stage performer, or for a photo shoot or a video.

Luna - light coral orange. Doesn't suit me. Would probably look really good on warmer/tanned skin tones though.

Nude Eclipse - standard nude lip colour for fair skin. On the brown side of nude, as opposed to the pink side. I'm not sure about this on me...would probably go well with a smokey eye, but otherwise it kind of washes me out. It's quite matte, so I prefer to put some sheer gold lipgloss on top.

I do not like this product. I tried, really I did. I bought Apocalips in the colour Celestial, back in the summer. It looked like a natural pink, but since there was no tester (Walmart, Canada) I knew I was taking my chances.

Because of its opacity, Celestial looks like a plastic pink when applied to the lips. I have pink toned, light skin and on me it looked... odd. No matter, I can always blend it with something else, right?

No. No, no, no. Apocalips is soooo drying! This time of year (early December), I don't have an issue with chapped lips, but every time I wear this, I get dry, flakey lips! Whaaaa?

No thanks.

I first got this in Apocaliptic just to try it out cause it just came out at the time. I ended up really liking it and bought Celestial as well and now I wanna get other shades too. It's not a lip gloss, that's for sure. It's true when they say it's a "lip lacquer" because it is soo pigmented and it stays on for ages. It's also really affordable too which is a huge plus for me. I also like the packaging. I reckon it doesn't look cheap.

Absolutely love these. They wear for hours, the only thing I have to be careful about is it transferring to my teeth (somehow it does that even if not overapplied). I've got the shade "Celestial" and it's the perfect "mauvy pink" shade for every day. Definitely one of my favorite drugstore lip products.

I have "BigBang". I like this product. But my lips are very very dry. So I always use some vasaline before I apply it <3 It's cheap. My sis bought it for me in a Rimmel Store in UK
So good !
Rate 4 stars :xxxxxx

I have this in the shade Stellar/501. I love love love this lip lacquer. The shade is amazing and so on trend. The staying power is great, however because it's a red shade I do feel like I need to take it off before eating otherwise it goes everywhere. But that's okay it takes 2 seconds to reapply afterwards! Great product, and I want more shades.
