Bold Lips

Tuesday, 6 October 2015

Lip Lacquer’s are having quite a moment currently. These Apocalips are some of my favourite lacquers as the bolder colours provide a punch of colour which is really striking. I always get asked what I am wearing when I wear this.

The doe-foot applicator makes application relatively easy if you are well practiced. Lip lacquers tend to be fiddly if you make a mistake so best to work carefully.

The feel on the lips is good, however after a full 9 hours of wear I look forward to removing it. It doesn’t dry out the lips per se, but just starts feeling uncomfortable. However for shorter days it is great.

The pigment is stunning, and the lasting power is a few hours given that you don’t eat or drink much. I tend to reapply about 3 times during the work day with regular drinking and eating.

This does tend to bleed a bit if a lip liner isn’t used, so I’d suggest pairing it with one.

My favourites are Big Bang and Apocaloptic.
