Currently in the ASOS sale for £3.50 (here)
Having loved Apocalips since they first came out a fair while back, I’ve slowly built up a teeny collection of three staple shades – a red, coral and pink (currently eyeing up a nude). I remember the huge blogging hype over these when they were first released and how impossible they were to get hold of, back when not having them was somewhat of a ‘blogger sin’. Now they are a firm staple in my lips drawer and I’ve recently begun to love them all over again. The shades that I own are Big Bang, Luna and Celestial, costing £6.49 from Boots and Superdrug (currently 3 for 2 on these). I believe there are around 13 shades ranging from a deep plum through to a light, natural nude – something for every occasion. The price is so reasonable considering the length of time that I’ve had them and the amount of use so I’d consider them to be worth investing in.
When applied, the lip lacquers have a shiny, gloss like finish but it quickly turns matte and dries up on the lips – something you will either love or loathe, but I’m finding it incredible as it means I almost forget its there. The only issue with the colours doing this is that Big Bang can often end up sat at the edge of my lips in a ‘lip liner’ style but its quickly resolved with a top up or blot. These are completely faultless in my eyes and I am thinking about purchasing a couple more in time and growing my collection – there is just something so addictive about their colour and finish.
Do you own any of the Apocalips, if not, what are your favourite lip products?
