Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer Swatches & Review

Over the last however long, I've accumulated four of these lip lacquers. The four shades are each unique colors. Three have a creme finish, while one has a light shimmer. In case you didn't know, these are called the Rimmel Apocalips in Europe. I think it's a much better name.

101 Celestial: a mid-toned coral leaning pink with a creme finish
This was my first Show Off lip color. It's a very middle of the road color, and is extremely wearable. This color is great for any daytime look.

500 Luna: a salmon-y orange nude creme
I love this one. I might love it the best. I've gotten into lighter nudes, and I just think this has the perfect bit of warmth for my skin tone.

601 Light Year: a warm pinky brown nude with a hint of gold shimmer
This is almost a my-lips-but-better color. It is stunning! Light Year may be my go-to easy nude for fall.

401 Aurora: a bold hot pink creme
I absolutely love colors like this. Probably a third of my lip products are some sort of hot pink. I'll have to try to incorporate this into my fall style, even if it's only for a night out.

Comparing the four, Luna is the only one that seems thinner than the others. It's also the only one that seems to sink into the lines in my lips. As for staying power, I would reapply these every 2-3 hours, depending on how much you're eating and drinking. The color payoff on all of these is spectacular. They all can be worn as a thin layer, or can be easily built to get a fuller color.

Kiss, Kiss.
