Rimmel Apocalips | The Review

When i first saw these beauties on the UK beauty blogs I fell in love. So the second I could get my hands on them in Canada, I had to pick up more than one. Known as the Show Off Lip Lacquers in the US, these are a hybrid product with the rich colour of a lipstick and the satin shine of a gloss. They are completely opaque with one swipe of the super creamy formula. They glide smoothly onto the lips and last 2-3 hours but unfortunately they do accentuate dry patches. 

I am absolutely obsessed with the packaging that is very unique in it’s appreciation of gemology. Each tube is shaped like some sort of diamond or meteor from space – very fitting with the playful name! – with a clear bottom to show the colour inside. I also adore the doe foot applicator that features a dip to hold just enough product.

I own 4 of the 12 shades that range from nudes to various pinks and bright reds. Phenomenon is a peachy nude creme, Solstice is a gorgeous rosy pink with a bit of shimmer (my favourite!), Aurora (LOVE the name) is a pinky coral and Big Bang is a show-stopping blue toned red.

I definitely plan on picking up a few more and i hope we get the new shades that just popped up in the UK.

    I have a few shades myslef, Out of thiw World and Celestial. I love them! I don't get the dip in the applicator though, as it's not transferring on my lips, it just sits there.

    I find the same thing, but if i tap it on my lip it seems to come out. Celestial looks gorgeous too! I think that might be my next one!

    I LOVE the rimmel apocolips. They're such good quality, a bit different to everything else out there and don't break the bank!Sharlotte || UK Beauty Blog

    I'm not huge fan of the Rimmel Apocalips as I find that they're too thick and the scent isn't very pleasant. I love the colour payoff but other than that, I'm just not a big fan because it doesn't sit comfortably. xxCelina | The Celution | Bloglovin’
