Earth-Shattering Color:
·         For the first time, the intense, richer color of a lipstick is enhanced by a smooth satin shine
·         Ultra-intense, ultra-comfortable – it lasts all day
·         It's neither a lipstick... nor a gloss... it's BIGGER than both
The earth-shattering lip lacquer from Rimmel London combining the intense color of lipstick with a lacquer like shine, Show Off Lip Lacquer is an explosive make-up phenomenon that represents the end of color as you know it.  Packed with pure color pigments, its lusciously creamy, conditioning formula promises a never-before combination of color, shine and comfort that last and last.”

The packaging is very eye-catching especially with the whole ombre effect that they got going on the tube. You can see what the shade is on the bottom half and then on the top it’s a glossy black with cool unique diamond crystal shapes as the cap and you can’t forget.. their fancy silver font.

No plastic wrap BUT it has a sticker seal.

There also isn’t a plastic wrap to seal the product but there is a sticker to seal the product. I used an exacto knife to cut a straight line to break the seal since I didn’t want to peel off the sticker. I also didn’t want to get a beat up cruddy line. The only bad thing is that once the sticker is gone then you won’t know which shade is which!

How you can tell if it's brand new or used.


I do like that you can see if the product was used or not. As you can tell in picture #1, the clear section doesn’t have any product in it. In picture #2 and #3, you see that the product starts gushing in the clear section. Finally #4, the product fills the whole clear section. Pretty neat idea (..well in my opinion!)

Doe Foot Applicator.


The wand is a doe foot applicator with a tiny dip and it’s really flexible which really helps on spreading the product around the lips. It also doesn’t take out too much product which is really great since we’re not wasting any of the products.

Overall, I really do like this lip product! I’m more of a lipstick person but it’s nice to have something glossy once in a while. The product smells like a light watermelon jolly rancher but it also has a kick of spice which reminds me of those Mexican candies. The wear time is really great which lasted around 4 hours for me (it definitely would’ve lasted longer if I didn’t eat towards the end). The range of shades is also nice since they have the nudes, pinks, plums, and reds which will attract everyone (..I obviously grabbed the brighter bolder shades and I’m still deciding if I want to grab Luna + the other nudes). For $4.99, I would definitely recommend you guys to pick up this product. You can’t go wrong with a cheap inexpensive product at all.

Which shades are you eyeing?
Will you be picking any of them up?

  1. awesome review! You got yourself a lot of pretty shades. I got Celestial from Asos.com a while back. I only got one as I just wanted to test it out. As pretty it is and quite moisturizing, I just cannot stand the scent of it.
