Rimmel Apocalips - Review

 Hi ladies! As I'm sure everyone is aware rimmel's long awaited Apocalips are now here! For weeks i have seen blog posts and swatches and everyone raving about them coming out and to be honest i wasn't rushing down to superdrug to purchase them as rimmel isn't top of my list for lip products how ever after their Kate moss range i was a little interested. By chance i was in boots buying Lilly some new bath products and i went to rimmel to pick up the Kate moss lipstick in 101 and happened to see the Apocalips on display. I will be honest i was on the fence with these for a while and didn't know what i thought. I only bought Nova first and then after seeing other blog posts i picked up Big bang and celestial today.

 Rimmel describes these as lip lacquer's, which i would say is like a melted lipstick with a high gloss finish applied in the way of a lip gloss which the power of a stain! When i first saw them on display the colours all seem very bright and the nude one Eclipse which i really wanted seems to be sold out every where, i would have like to have seen a more milky pink in the collection and celestial seems to be the closet i could find but if you love bright lips then you will love them all!

 I actually really like the packaging, the slick black tube with the clear end so you can see the colour and then it has like a diamond effect on the top. Its simple and i think it makes them look a little bit more high end. What made me a little unsure about them is how they wear off the lips, when i first applied Nova i was impressed by the pigmentation they are so highly pigmented its crazy for a rimmel product however when they wear off it leaves a stain which i actually prefer but also the glossy high pigmentation leaves a line around the lips like bad liner which doesn't look great but i just rubbed it in and it was ok, did anyone else get that?

 The applicator is a doe-foot applicator which i prefer to the brush and it gives a really precise application and with one swipe the colour is on, i cannot fault these at all for pigmentation what you see in the tube will be on your lips! The colour Nova is a bright pink, Celestial is more of a muted pink and Big bang is a bright red! I could probably do a whole post on big bang! Honestly i think its the nicest, perfect red lip product i have ever tried! Its definitely the star of the collection and if your wanting to purchase one of these i would highly recommend Big bang especially if you love a good red!

 Overall I'm impressed by the pigmentation of these and if your looking for an affordable highly pigmented lip gloss/stain go for these you will not be disappointed by the pigmentation that's for sure!

 If you have written a review on these, link it below so i can see what colours you got and your thoughts :)



  1. I have to get around to getting them at last x

    1. If you want more than one take advantage of boots 3 for 2 :)

  2. I was really looking forward to getting these, went into Boots swatched them and to be honest didn't find a shade I really wanted. Unfortunately the one nude was sold out which was the shade I wanted to buy :(

    Might go back in though with a fresh mind and see if they have the one I want hehe, and I agree a milky pink would have been a nice shade to the collection :)


    1. I was exactly the same as you which is why i only bought nova first but i would try celestial if you like a more light pink :) x

  3. Wow I really want to give these a try for the pigmentation! I hate how a lot of gloss ends up being more sheer than I want. Thanks for the review! :)

  4. Nova looks so pretty! They sound great xx

    1. Nova is a nice colour, have you tried any? x

  8. I need to get my bum in gear and go into town and get these! I've swatched them all in Boots but for some crazy reason I didn't buy any cause I couldn't decide which ones! I agree that they need a milkier sort of pink as I'd get a lot of wear out of it. I'm not very brave with lipstick but I am experimenting more! Big Bang is gorgeous!
