I originally bought this on ASOS for around 7$ (which I thought was a pretty good price at the time) as this product was out in the UK long before it was out in Australia. I was desperate to get my hands on it as pretty much every Youtube Beauty Guru on the planet was raving about this product. I bought the colour "Big Bang" and my god it is a gorgeous colour. Such a classic, vintage, Marilyn Monroe-esque sort of shade. Imagine my disapointment when I realised the colour was the only good quality about this product.
First of all, this sort of brush applicator with these sort of opaque lip colours is a big no-no. It is so hard to apply precisely, it's unbelievable. Maybe with the more nude shades it wouldn't be a big deal, but with this bright red, it was. Also, if you make a mistake and go out of your lip line, work quickly, because this stuff stains.
Now to mention the quality I most dislike about this product... It gets on my teeth. No lip product ever leaves stains on my teeth!
If you want me to talk about the lasting power of this product, I wouldn't know, because I would never ever wear this out of the house due to it getting on my teeth every time I speak. So annoying!
Oh, one last thing, the smell. It might smell good to some people but for me personally, this is the most disgusting smelling product I've come across in a long time.
But, maybe that just me. As I said at the start of this review, this product has been truely raved about for months now but I definitely do not see the appeal behind it. Will not repurchase, that's guaranteed.

I love this lipgloss! I have it in the color Stellar. I pair it with lipstick and find it to be a beautiful color. I especially love to pair it over my limecrime babette lipstick! it conforms it to a more beautiful, wearable color for me. The babette comes out too pale on my lips.. this color does rub off easily on its own but paired over a lipstick, it lasts a good while! Will definitely repurchase in other colors!

I fell for the marketing and hype around a Rimmel lip product yet again and I'm still sorely disappointed.
Rimmel gets full marks for the packaging - it's sexy, pretty and unique. The colour is at the bottom and the scent is yummy. The pigmentation is excellent - full opacity with one swipe. The doe foot applicator was a nice thought but unfortunately it distributes far too much product. I have this in Celestial, a natural mauve pink - absolutely adore this colour! It really flatters my yellow undertones well. Now here's the bad things.
The staying power is subpar, coming off immediately when my lips have contact with food, even though I blot and reapply twice. It also settles into my lip lines even though I apply a balm over the top and it makes my lips feel extremely parched and dry after an hour in air-conditioned environments - it makes me feel very uncomfortable. Moreover, it also forms flakes at the corners of my mouth and it's rather unpleasant. I also find for me, it often goes outside my thick lips, making them even fatter that usual, and it seems like it never sets even if I apply one coat and leave it to dry for ages!
So incredibly frustrating. Sadly this is not a dream to wear and I won't be repurchasing again. Just goes to show that not all every hyped product delivers.

Those are so highly pigmented and staying power is impressive too! Like a nail polish only for your lips.

I'm a huge lip product fan, and this stuff is just fantastic! I really wanted to try the Apocalips when I first saw them in stores, but they're a bit on the pricier side (around $10 where I live). So I picked the colour "Aurora" up when it was on sale and it really lives up to the hype! It's incredibly pigmented and stays forever on my lips. The only downside for me is that my lips feel a bit dry after a few hours, but applying a moisturising balm fixes that.
Other than the pigmentation, the packaging is also quite nice. There's a small hole in the applicator that holds product, which makes it so that you don't have to keep dipping the wand back into the container. I also love the design of the packaging, it's very edgy and unique.
I will definitely be going out to buy some of the nude shades, as "Aurora" is more of a special occasion colour. Great product overall!

I bought the shades celestial and comet. They are both really pretty and I wanna buy solstice. The texture is nice and smooth and isn't sticky at all. I like that a lot of them have cream finishes as well. They have a nice color range and the color is very opaque which is awesome and last a few hours. what I don't like is that they aren't moisturizing, the smell is weird and strong (mix of cucumbers and jolly ranchers), and they transfer so easily. Anything they touch the color transfers a lot. Also the packaging is cute but it's not sealed. I bought two already opened ones by accident which was kids annoying. I might repurchase, but just for solstice I think. I'm iffy on it. But leaning more towards will repurchase.

I loved it at first, amazing pigmentation and the moisture is lovely however it comes off so easy! one strand of hair gets in it and you'll find a lovely bright pink line across your face! some woman thought I had been scratched on the face. It's not a good look.
It feels so great but it's too gooey for me.
I have 3 of them to use now after getting over the first 'love' for them.
The brush is great for getting the product, you don't have to double dip.
Overall, it's nice but so messy it really isn't worth the hassle. I prefer Maybelline's 14 Hour Lipsticks, more drying but they don't come off as easy.

I bought this from priceline, I bought the shade "Novo" I love it! went and bought the remaining colours. They're not cheap either with $15.95 for one. But I have really chapped lips and they stay moisturised with lip balm and then the product on top! Definitely using them all summer!

I totally understand the hype! I went out and bought myself two of these lip lacquers after hearing such positive things and reading amazing reviews about them and can only add to those positive reviews. The colours I own are Apocaliptic, a creamy bright fuchsia pink, and Celestial, a creamy light pink-nude. Celestial is an everyday colour for me and I love the fact it stays on all day. Apocaliptic is a shade I save for parties and special occasions as it's very pigmented and super bright. I can't fault these lip lacquers and I highly recommend them if you desire long lasting and very pigmented lip products.

Love this product. I first bought the light year and galaxy. I wanted a true nude (light year) and a pink-y nude (galaxy). These were perfect. Didn't flake on my lips. Didn't show horrible cracking. A little product goes a long way! I pair both with my cork lip liner from Mac and I'm good to go. I went back to buy "big bang" and again noo complaints! :) I think everyone should get these! Great price, great quality!
