I do love the packaging of these, not only do they look pretty cool, but I love that the bottom is clear so you can see what the shade is without needing search for the shade name. Also I love the applicator! A doe foot applicator is perfect for a liquid lipstick, and I love that it has dip in the applicator which allows for more product to pool, so you can apply a thick layer of the lipstick without having to re-dip the applicator.
|l-r: 102 Nova, 501 Stellar|
Both of these liquid lipsticks are really easy to apply, they are really smooth and very pigmented. The shade Nova is a pretty mid toned mauve and Stellar is a bright dark coral. These are very wet lipsticks, so they glide over dry patches on your lips so they will suit people who hate lipsticks that cling to dry patches. They also don't feel sticky on your lips... and they make your lips look amazing!
These Apocalips Lip Lacquers have a lot of positive points about them, so I can understand why people love them. What I don't like about them is that they stay liquid until they come off... they never set! Because they stay wet, they smear and smudge and they come off as soon as you eat or drink. I personally think these are too high maintenance to wear often. I will only reach for these to apply over a matte lipstick or a Lip Tar to add a bit of sheen. If you are ok with high maintenance lip products, then these are beautiful and I recommend them! If you like to apply a product and not have to worry about about it for a few hours, then don't fall for the hype, these are not for you!

They don't set
