On my birthday a couple of weeks ago, I got a DM on Twitter saying I was a winner of their Lust Have competition and that Apocalips was on it’s way to me! I’d wanted it since it came out but £15 for a blue lipstick is on the wrong side on sensible for me, I’m afraid!
Gorgeous compliment slip and a sample of Freak – at this rate I’m never going to actually have to buy it, ha ha! Thank you Illamasqua, you made me very happy!
Oooh, innit pretty? It’s actually surprisingly flattering as long as you’re really careful with application and have no red/pink tones showing on your lip line, which looks a little strange. I’d also encourage a decent cover-up of any redness or blemishes on your chin area as I feel it might make them stand out a little bit more. I won’t lie to you, it’s dry as shit and does stick to itself a wee bit as you apply it, so it’s not the nicest formula in the world but nothing terrible either; this was two swipes with the bullet and then I tidied up the edges, so no worse than most mattes, it just goes on dry as opposed to drying down, if you get me. I personally don’t mind dry lipsticks if my lips are in good nick but it might not be for everyone. If you have to have it yet dry formulas drive you up the wall, I recommend…
FLAKIES. Srsly enlarge that bad boy. I put a Hard Candy Glossaholic over it on a whim and fell in love. I’m going to have so much fun layering with this!
I’ve yet to use it in a look, but I have an idea brewing so keep your eyes peeled. I’d definitely wear this out to the right place, but time will tell whether I’m brave enough to actually go through with it or not!
