The Horsewoman of the Apocalips


She came riding in finery and glory, holding forth her arsenal of colours. 13 shades in all. Rimmel Apocalips.

Lips that look like they have been painted on. Opaque, non sticky and with staying power.

This is how I apply it. First lip conditioner/ balm. I let that sink in for about 10 mins. Dab excess oil off. Apply the lip lacquer.

I need to smooth mine with a lip brush, especially around the edges. Set for 5 mins (while I am getting ready) and then I  dab with tissue and reapply.

I would recommend a lip liner to complete the ‘ the I have lips and I am not afraid to show it’ look.

My selfies below are without lip liner (and I have crooked lips !)


I drank coffee, had breakfast and its been 3.5 hours and the colour is still there.

I have really dry lips and so far even without a re-appliation of a lip blam on top, my lips are not flaking.

I have to say I get flaking with the Revlon Kissable Lip Stain balm and have to coat it with a balm on top.

Very pleased just the applicator picks up a bit too much colour and you need to be careful.

I like the size, better than the Maybelline 24 hours gloss applicator. That one is big and round (why round ???? we have angles in our lips)

I do like my Maybelline , but the Rimmel colours are more in your face and I love the LACQUER look. And the ‘painted on, pasted on lips’ look.


Quite sexy.
