RIMMEL APOCALIPS LIP LACQUER

Tuesday, 22 January 2013


I think Rimmel is one of the best drugstore brands for new launches, they always seem to get our little beauty obsessed hearts racing and counting down the days until launch day. This time it's with their new lip lacquers, Apocalips. The name is pretty epic, but I'm pleased to say that the product does live up to it. 

The Apocalips are a happy medium between a long-wear lipstick and a high-shine lipgloss. They remind me of Stila's Liquid Lipstick as they apply a very thick, highly pigmented colour onto the lips like a lipstick, but the effect is a shiny, rich lipgloss look. I didn't find these to be sticky at all and despite the solid block of colour it gives, they're not at all heavy feeling on the lips. The packaging is clear, so the colour you see is actually the colour you get and I absolutely love the foam applicator with it's 'micro-resevoir'. It applies really smoothly and evenly, making precision around the lips easy. The way they feel so soft and light on the lips also reminds me of Collection's Cream Puff. 

They come in 8 shades and out of the three I tried Celestial is my favourite, but I also have my eye on Big Bang which is a bright red. Oh and now you know why I don't wear nudes... I'm looking at you Nude Eclipse!!

They are extremely long lasting and stayed on whilst I filmed a whole video and ate some soup for lunch. You can see in the photo below what the swatches looked like after I scrubbed my arm with Bioderma. 

These are out tomorrow so go and have a swatch to see if you like them. Be quick though, I have a feeling the first batch of these will sell out! 

What do you think? Are these something you want to try?

  20. The nude eclipse might just be the colour I have been waiting for! I have been looking for a nude, every day colour for the last year or so and can't find one that suits my skin tone. But I can't wait to give this a go! :) x

  21. I just recently got into testing out Rimmel London and love their lipsticks. I'm interested in getting Nude Eclipse. Does this have a taste or smell?

  26. The nude shade does actually suit you Lily but I know what you mean - I feel a bit like a zombie if I wear a nude shade. These sound right up my street so I may be elbowing the crowds in Boots tomorrow.

    Stellar is definitely my favourite shade on you too!

  65. Oh I so cannot do nudes either...though to be fair when I saw you wearing this nude I thought you looked good...but I totally get not being into them. Stellar on the other hand...I knew when I saw these posts going up that I had to have it...and sure enough--its mine. I do love Big Bang though...might need to give it a try!
