Rimmel London: Apocalips Lip Laquer

Hello my loves,

Today I will review one of the most talked about lip products of 2013, even tough it just February. The new Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquers. I bought one of the colors; 101 Celestial.
Let me explain the name Apocalips first. According to Rimmel, this isn't the end of the world, but it is the end of the way you know color. This should be a new way to experience color.
 Don't you love the packaging. It's clearly inspired by space. The lid is some sort of eroded space-stone. The case has some sort of ombré-effect. They hold 0.18 fl oz/5.5 ml.
The applicator has a reservoir which holds just enough product to cover your entire lips. It applies very smooth and precise, which I didn't expect. I expected the gloss to be very thick, sticky and such but it's not. It feels a little bit like a lipstain, but it's not. A stain, stain your lips, this products forms a thin layer onto your lips.
In total there are 7 colors. I have one of them.

  • 100 - Phenomenon
  • 101 - Celestial (this one I have)
  • 303 - Apocaliptic
  • 400 - Big Bang
  • 501 - Stellar
  • 601 - Light Year
  • 701 - Stargazer

Do you see that color! Just with one sweep you have a great intensive color. They promised a shine and intense pay-off, and the hold on to that. The product is some sort of combination between a lipstick and a gloss. The intensity of a lipstick and the shine of a lipgloss. Ad a big asset is that they aren't sticky at all.
WOW! Do you see that color? It's so pretty Even tough this is a very natural soft pink color, you can see how intensive the color is. This is a my lips-but-better color. 
They don't stay put all day but at least 4 hours. I ate and drank with this gloss on and you could still see the color. 

I love this gloss. The color is great, the shine is beautifully and they last long enough for me. Even after cup of soup, the color was still visible on my lips. 
They are available at stores for €10,99

Vera Wang: Princess

Hello my loves,

Maybe you've noticed that I didn't upload anything last week. I had a very good reason therefore: I was in Berlin. Later this week I will tell you a bit more about my experiences there but today I bring you a perfume review. In my preview I already showed you which one. Today I'm talking about Vera Wang's 'Princess'.
Little side-note: when I was writing this post, I discovered that some of the pictures were way to dark. I retook them but I already used the perfume. That's why the bottle isn't completely full anymore.
First of all the box: it's adorable. The perfume is packed in a lilac box with a big purple hart and a gold crown printed on it. In other words: the perfect box for a princess.' And with a little imagination you can see a princess when you look into the box.
The thing that attracted me the most about this perfume was the bottle. It's s pretty and girly. The bottle itself is clear but the fluid is lilac. It has the shape of a hart and the back is shaped like a facet. On top of that little hart is a little golden crown placed  with purple diamonds and little hart-cut-outs. Later I discovered that when you take the crown off, you can also take of a little gold ring.
I smell mostly amber, vanilla and chocolate but for some reason it remind me of a fruit garden. Let's take a look at the notes to see why:

Top notes:  mandarin, orange, apple, water lily
Middle notes: tuberose. guava, dark chocolate, tiare flower.
Base notes: amber, vanilla, woodsy notes.

There you have it, apple, mandarin, orange and guava. All sort of fruit which you can clearly smell. I would describe this scent as very sweet and fruity yet floral. It's a perfect daytime-scent but also suitable for night.
When I spray this in the morning, I have spray it again round 3 o'clock (yes I checked). So not all day but still pretty long for a eau de toilette.

I bought this perfume almost a week ago and I've been wearing it non-stop. It fits me perfectly. And in Berlin my roommates lend it all the time. If you like sweet scents I would definitely sniff it the stores because it might bee perfect for you.
