Back in 2013, Rimmel London brought on the apocalypse and erupted the beauty world into talks of…Apocalips. Now, in 2014 comes their longer lasting, demi-matte finish sexy sister Provocalips. Boasting 16 hours of kiss-proof colour, this dual ended lip cream gives you intense colour on one end, and locks it in and adds shine with the other end.

The Rimmel London Provocalips 16Hr Kiss Proof Colour* (RRP $17.95) is crazy pigmented, and is super easy to apply. In comparison to the Rimmel London Apocalips range, they are a little less liquid-y and sets onto your lips to create a demi-matte finish. The range of colours available is pretty similar to the range for Apocalips, but they’ve added an awesome purple colour (hells to the yeah! Aussies missed out on the purple lip Galaxy in the Apocalips collection) and they’ve left out the red-orange ‘Stellar’ colour.
All of these lip swatches were taken before the lip colour ‘set’, as to avoid the massive amount of pain it would be to apply and remove eight matte lip colours (I’ve done it before with the Australis Matte Lip Creams and my lips hated me for days!).
