So I’ll begin with the confusing part first… “It’s neither a lipstick nor a gloss… It’s BIGGER than both! ”
SO WHAT AM I?
The new APOCALIPS LIP LACQUER OF COURSE!
This was one of my shopaholic purchases because I really didn’t need it but I was dying to try it out. Infact I only purchased this product because of the packaging. its a two toned black and colour (the colour of the lip lacquer) tube with a black lid and silver writing, I found this was by far one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. It can easily fool you by first glance, but this sexy little hand bag number is here to stay. It looks like a simple lip gloss which has a vibrant shade, however when you apply this lip lacquer it has a rich colour, smooth glossy look and a sexy satin finish for all night long.
I purchased the lip lacquer in the colour Big Bang, which is a deep red lip lacquer. I was completely unaware of what surprises this gloss had for me. When I opened the very pretty tube, I noticed a large application brush for perfect application, the brush had a slight curve and dip so you can achieve a perfect, flawless lip lacquer application. The actual product is something like a gloss stain which I like, because nothing says “flawless” like glossy lips with long lasting colour.
When I applied the lacquer to my lips, I could feel a lovely smooth feel, I spread the gloss quickly thinking it would set in, however the gloss stains lips to a lovely colour, while still keeping that beautiful shine on lips. I’m not exactly sure how long the gloss lasted on my lips, but it was around three to four hours.
PRO’s and CON’s
Long lasting colour
Available in 8 vibrant shades
Doesn’t dry out lips
Lips feel like satin
Lips have a glossy shine
The lip lacquer is affordable
Perfect applicator brush
Lip lacquer has a stopper to only allow the perfect amount of gloss that’s needed – Perfect so you don’t waste
This product stains!!! KEEP AWAY FROM CLOTHES when applying
It’s a bit stubborn to remove, even with make up remover
Not everyone may like a staining gloss on their lips
Overall I love this product, and I would really recommend everyone give this product a try. If long lasting colour and a sexy glossy look is what you’re looking for, then this gloss is most definitely for you. Plus it’s really affordable at R89 a tube, because it will be really long lasting and you don’t really need to apply much to lips.
