Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer


Guys. I just did a double-take in my local Walgreens. If you’re as obsessed with lip products as I am, I’m sure you’ve heard and read rave reviews of Rimmel Apocalips, a long-wearing, opaque liquid lipstick. I didn’t think you could find them in the US…until now. 

I was on the way to Whole Foods and stopped in Walgreens on my way there to pick up razors. I of course had to peruse the cosmetics section (and thank god I did), and when I was looking at one of the center stands – there it was, a small display of Rimmel Show Off Lip Laquer. These are the Apocalips Laquers with a different name! I recognized most of the shade names, so I’m guessing you can get all of the same shades that are sold in the UK.

I wound up choosing Luna, a gorgeous peachy orange, and Solstice, a dusty mauve-rose with silver shimmer running through it. I only just bought these (literally, 20 minutes ago) so I’ll have to update this post with a more in-depth review after I’ve used them for about a week.

The display stated that the product was a Walgreens exclusive, so I’m not sure you can grab these anywhere else at the moment. Please let me know if you’ve seen these anywhere else!

    I’ve been wanting to try these! I’ve seen them around my local drugstore recently and didn’t know what to think. So they were good? long lasting and pigmented?

      I just got these so I can’t give a great review yet… but I’ve put on Luna and I love it! Great color for the summer. I also love the way these feel on, very creamy.

      Thanks! Love the idea of this, I’ll definitely get a list of products together!
