I’m wild fond (say this in a Butty Brennan accent if you please) of Rimmel’s Apocalips liquid lipstick formula as it is (slick, opaque and super-glossy on the lips) and recent stash clearout turned up a shade I didn’t know I had: Stellar, so I was happier still.

Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar

This is kind of fitting for a couple of reasons: one being the fact I work at Stellar (I’m the deputy editor) so that tickled me all on its own, and the other is the fact this is one amazing neon red colour.

Look! See? 

It’s a beauty. Bright, screamingly loud and with a very small nudge towards being pinkish, this is so nice, I love it. Like all Apocalips’ it doesn’t last kissing time (literally) but like I’ve said before, I’ve got no beef with having to reapply products to my mouth, so there’s no hassle on my end, on that front.

The other really great thing about Rimmel’s Apocalips is the price: these are only about €8, and considering it’s one of the best liquid lipstick formulas out there, that’s a pretty big bargain.

Have you tried ’em?
