Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Galaxy

Happy Saturday! Today I have another shade to share with you from Rimmel's Apocalips Lip Lacquer in the shade Galaxy* ($8.99 CAD). I've been really impressed by Rimmel's Apocalips line, I find that they feel really great on my lips, the pigmentation is good, and they wear really well.

"It's the End of Colour as you know it!
The intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin smooth shine.
It's neither a lipstick nor a gloss... It's BIGGER than both!
LONG LIVE THE COLOUR!" - Rimmel

First of all, I really love the packaging of Rimmel's Apocalips Lip Lacquers! You can see the colour of the product at the bottom of the tube, and the lid has a cool blasted rock looking design. The doe foot applicator has a well in it, so it picks up just the right amount of product to apply to your lips. This formula has a slightly fruity scent, which isn't my favourite, but it isn't bad or too overpowering. The shade Galaxy is a beautiful shimmery plum. The shimmer in this formula is quite light, and I don't find that it shows up that well on my lips. While this product looks darker in the tube and when swatched, it looks a bit lighter and pinkier on my pigmented lips. I think that Galaxy would be a great shade for anyone wanting to get into the berry lip trend, but they don't want anything to vampy or bold. The Apocalips formula last for about 5 hours on my lips before fading, but the hydration benefits do wear off after about 3 hours.
