Beauty// Rimmel - Apocalips Lip Lacquer

Rimmel's Apocalips were a product I saw a lot on beauty blogs last year, and really wanted to try.
 However, they haven't been released in Japan ( and I doubt they will).

So I haven't been able to try them ...until this year!
On my trip back to the UK at Xmas, I was wondering around Superdrugs when I saw them.
What exactly are they though? Lipstick? lipgloss?
Rimmel say they're neither. They are said to give lipstick colour payoff but with lipgloss shine.

Any way, I picked up the 3 latest colours released by Rimmel. Eclipse ( deep red), Aurora (coral)and Across the Universe ( berry).

Eclipse, Aurora and Across the Universe swatched in that order.

They remind me of Sleek's Pout paints but with a convenient wand for applying. The wand is a doe foot applicator but has a little well in the middle that picks up colour, I really like the wand. It'd really easy to apply. 

Overall, I love these. The colour selection is wonderful and the formula is amazing for a drug store brand.
 Super pigmented, not drying, and long lasting. I highly recommend these. 

Have you tried Rimmel's Apocalips lip lacquers? What did you think?

Current Loves

 Trying a different format for my current loves post.
What do you think? Yay or nay? Prefer photos?

What are your current loves?

My Blackmilk collection

Around mid-2012, I started noticing these posts on the internet of girls wearing galaxy leggings.
I thought they were  amazing and thus looked them up ...........and that began my Blackmilk collection.

It's not a very big collections but it's mine.
My first blackmilk purchase was made in December 2012. I ordered the Rainbow Galaxy in medium. It was a difficult decision to make as they have soooooo many Galaxy leggings.
Well about 5 or 6 different colour versions. Still that is a lot.

Anyway, I bought. I wore. I fell in love.

They are so comfy and the quality is amazing. Great print, great fabric and well made.

After my rainbow galaxies came the sheer spartans.
I love these! The design is wonderful. I love the peek of thigh the sheer panel gives. Makes an great pair of wet look leggings, a million times more interesting in my opinion.

And finally my last order from Blackmilk.

 I ordered the Mucha, Green Galaxy and the Adventure time Bro Balls leggings.

The Mucha ones I didn't like as much as I thought I did. In hindsight I wish I'd bought either the burned velvet or the giant wave or the cathedral ones. Oh well.
They're still great, just don't like them as much as the others

 I think my favourites from this order are either the green galaxy ( I love galaxy prints) or the Adventure Time ones.

All my leggings are very well made and the prints are amazing.
 Sure, Blackmilk can be expensive but I think they are well worth the price.

Here I paired my Bro ball leggings with a black velvet skater from Forever 21 and some docs  :D
Plus silly EOTD make up ...I look tired and ill because I probably was. Photo taken in Winter. Japan's winter makes me constantly tired and ill.:(

Next on my wish list ...
Ohh I'd love one of their Game of Throne shooter tops and the burned velvet spartan leggings.

What do you think of Blackmilk? Do you own any of their clothes ?
