Rimmel Apocalips

Rimmel London has just this week – exclusively to the Facebook page – launched a pretty darn impressive new range of lip products. They’re called Apocalips (see what they did there) and these beauties are a high-street version of products that have been seen from other, higher-end brands – with real ‘wow’ colour, plus a bit of gloss that offers shine, but not stickiness  Basically a hybrid of gloss and lipstick that takes the best bits of each.
The range includes eight shades and I decided to pick out my four favourites from the range to take a closer look. Sorry this post doesn’t include lip swatches as I normally would, but my lips are horribly chapped at the moment thanks to the cold snap and frankly, no-one needs to see that so I thought the colour swatches would give a decent idea.

My four favourites from the range are Luna, Celestial, Stellar, and Apocaliptic – as pictured left to right above.

Luna is a peachy shade of nude, Celestial a warm toned pink, Stellar is a real ‘pow’ colour and Apocaliptic is rich and bright pink.

Texture wise, the pigmentation of these can’t be faulted – the swatches above are just one swipe. The texture manages to be creamy and moisturising, but still with really decent staying power. It perhaps doesn’t last quite as long as a normal lipstick but definitely longer than a normal gloss.

Personally I think these are amazing – especially for a high-street product and if you love lipstick then definitely check them out!

£5.99 Available from Facebook until launch later this month.

    These DO look amazing! The package is something I wouldn’t expect from Rimmel though! Wonder when they’ll hit Australia!

    i think these look so good! they’d be perfect for long shifts at work when you still need lip colour but can’t top it up every hour

    This sounds really odd, but I read this post late at night and when I fell asleep these lipglosses were in my dream, and I had to come back on here this morning to check that they existed, and now I know they do I’m definitely going to buy some!
