Rimmel's Show Off Lip Lacquer in #500 Luna & #301 Galaxy: Swatch + Review

Here's a review of the last two Rimmel Show Off (aka Apocalips) that I picked up and I think I am content with all the colors I have choosen in total.
The ones being reviewed today are #301 Galaxy and #500 Luna.
(review of  Big Bang, Apocaliptic and Celestial HERE, review of Nude Eclipse and Solstice HERE )

Like the others, there is a typical doe-foot sponge tip applicator that applies a very decent amount of product.

Swatch below is in natural sunlight outdoors.
Like the other Show Off Lacquers, one swipe already has a lot of color payoff.

I really liked this first color, Luna, because it was a very light, nude coral color. It applied wonderfully and had great color payoff. I wouldn't wear this color every day mainly because it seems a little too bright some times. This is a color that can make your teeth look more yellow than they really are though so if corally-pinks tend to give off that look then I would try to avoid it. I can see this color washing out some darker skin tones as well, so it really depends on the look you're going for. It isn't exactly an every day color but I can see this color being more worn in warmer weather.

Here is another pinky color that would work as an every day color. It isn't as bright as Celestial , but it is a little more pink than Solstice, but is also a my lips but better color. There is a slight shimmer to the product but it isn't all that chunky so it leaves a nice glistening effect on the already shiny gloss.

Again, I can't say how much I love these producs and would highly recommend them for the price and color pay off. I bought these ones again at Walgreens and they had a sale of $3.99 (originally $4.99) and plus they had a manufacturer's coupon for $1 off so I only paid $2.99 for them. IF you can find them on a deal and they have a coupon, then you are totally getting your products worth.
I probably won't get any more colors but I am happy with the ones I choose. Some other contenders I recommend looking at are Stellar, a bright redish pink, and Aurora, a darker berry magenta, especialyl if you are looking for something more bold.

Have you tried the Rimmel Show Off/ Apocalips? Which is your favorite color??
