Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer - Stellar & Luna (Swatches!)

After seeing British vloggers rave about these glosses (called Apocalips in the UK), I was thrilled to see them in my own Walgreens. I picked up two shades, Stellar, and Luna.

Luna is a peach/coral color that is more bold in person that it seems in photos. Stellar is a hot coral/pink. So pretty for a statement lip!

(this is one swipe. no building the color!)

They are both super opaque with one swipe. If you love a bold lip, this is for you! The one negative for me is the scent. They have a very strong artificial watermelon-ish scent. I don't mind scents in lip products, but this is very fake smelling, and sickly sweet. The scent does fade after a few minutes, and it won't stop me from wearing these.
Both colors last and last. They fade pretty evenly too. No "ring around the mouth" happening. The gloss wears down after an hour or so, but the color lasts. I actually like the look once it's a bit matte, especially with Luna. I like to blot it with a tissue after putting it on for a matte pop of color that will last 'til lunch!
I won't be purchasing any more colors, but I'll keep using these this summer! Have you tried these? Do you think you'll pick any up?

Happy Tuesday!

I love Birchbox. I have been a subscriber for a year and a half, and I am totally smitten! This month, my favorite sample was a Color Club nail polish in Mod in Manhattan. Anytime I get a nail polish, it's probably my favorite sample. But I was extra excited because this was the color I was hoping for!

I did not know that off-white could be a neon color. But it can. And it is gorg. When I re-do my mani, I may put this color back on. And that is practically unheard of in my world. Do you love it too?


Hi. This is my blog. I’d like to share my experiences, beauty related, and otherwise, with you! I have so appreciated the beauty blogging community when I’m looking for my next mascara, or trying to suss what color that lipstick will actually be. (I’m getting distracted writing this, as I consider looking up swatches of the L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lacquer Lipglosses. Can I resist that Barbie-pink one?)

I would love to share with you what I’m loving & what’s working for me. I hope you’ll do the same!
