The Apocalips lip laquer collection is one that we’ve had our eyes on for a while , since it was launched last year. But with the trend for liquid lipsticks at full force this season, we felt like it was time to try this spring bright, raspberry-red shade.

The range consists of end of the world names, with Stellar (meaning ‘star’) being our first choice. The formula feels like a thicker, matte version of a lip gloss, with a futuristic multi-dimensional handle adding to its visual appeal. You apply the colour from a wand which means there’s no need for a separate lip brush to get a defined lip line.

The colour is really easy to build from a gorgeous pinky stain to a punchier fuchsia shade in a couple of layers. Once blotted the finish can feel a little sticky, but with a couple layers of Lipcote the final effect is secure and stays vibrant. Because of its highly affordable price point, you won’t feel too bad in blotting off excess to really work the colour into your lips, and help maintain a pretty impressive, highly pigmented pout!

We think this colour will see you through well to some sizzling summer nights, and is the perfect spring addition to a wardrobe of pastels or as a contrast to pared down neutrals. The overall feel of this product is very on trend, and we think this will be a very fun addition to your makeup kit. Just the trick to make you feel like a star in the making! X
