Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Phenomenon

Today I have another shade from Rimmel's Apocalips Lip Lacquer line to share with you! The shade Phenomenon* ($8.99 CAD) is a peachy nude shade. I've been quite impressed with the shades that I've tried so far from the Apocalips line, they're a great drugstore line!

 "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!

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 Phenomenon is a peachy nude colour that can apply a little bit milky. I do find that I have to work a bit more with this shade compared to the darker shades in the Apocalips line. However, Phenomenon does give good colour payoff, and the formula is nice and creamy. The Apocalips formula last for about 5 hours on my lips before fading, but the hydration benefits do wear off after about 3 hours.

I've been liking Phenomenon on days when I'm wearing or bright blush or a colourful eye, as this shade is fairly nude and muted. This nude is very wearable, thanks to the peachy notes in it. Don't worry, this nude won't completely was out your lips! Have you tried any of Rimmels' Apocalips yet? Which shades are your favourites?
