Today I bring you my take on Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer or what is Britishly known as Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer. I bought 2 shades from Bon Marche a few months ago: Aurora and Bigbang.
Both shades are pretty, very long lasting and fairly comfortable on the lips. See my individual comments on the shades after the cut.
Aurora is a beautiful medium pink shade that looks slightly coral. It applies evenly and very opaque and you don’t need a lot of the product to coat your lips. I usually wipe off a bit of the product on the inside of the tube before application.
I experienced slight fading after dinner on the 6th hour of wear. I reapplied and it looked pretty okay, my lips were still comfortable during this time. At the end of the day, after 10 hours of wear, my lips were slightly chapped as seen in the photo below.
This was the better formula of the 2 shades that I have. It did not chap my lips and it stayed on for ages until I went home. I did not have to re-apply because the color was still in its full RED glory even after eating.
I really like the formula of these lip lacquers. These actually reminds me of the Dior Fluid Sticks but Rimmel’s lip lacquers are more creamy while Dior’s are glossy and slightly more sheer. I actually have one more shade to review – it’s going to be delivered at my doorstep this week. So watch out for it!
