Rimmel Apocalips Matte

Rimmel London Apocalips Matte are the latest addition to the Apocalips family – following in the footsteps of the rather popular original launch that delivered an amazing lip-combo of colour like a lipstick, but creamy texture. Quality wise, Rimmel is definitely top of the pack when it comes to lip products on the highstreet in my opinion. They have some great innovation, fab shades and the quality/price is always the perfect balance. These new shades are a matte version of the previous – so the colour applies glossy but then dries down to loose it’s shine and leave you with a statement colour but velvet finish (hence the ‘lip velvet’ name).

These three shades are (L-R) Orange-Ology (orange-red), Meteoric Matte (deep burgundy) and Atomic Rose (nude rose). My top pick would 100% be Orange-Ology as I do love an orange toned red – they’re bright and fun, but somehow still feel quite classic at the same time.

I can see these shades being very popular as matte lips (much to my eternally-chapped lips dismay) are having a bit of a moment, If, like me, you can’t quite manage a matte lip without them just crinkling up like you had a four hour bath – then these are a good bet as the formula is creamy to apply and feels more comfortable than the usual type of matte lipstick.

    I definitely need to get myself some of these, as I love the normal Apocalips range and I am dying to try the matte versions out.

    Oh jeez, that nude rose looks wonderful! The burgundy looks fab as well. I love rimmel, they’re probably my favourite highstreet brand, along with NYX. Consistent quality and affordable prices!

    I love the nude shade, I just don’t think my lips would agree with the matte formula! 🙁 xx

    I never really went for the original apocalips because I just saw it as a normal gloss which never really works well for me. I really really want to try a few of these however, matte lip effects are my favourite so a non-drying creamy texture would be lovely!

    I loved the original Apocalips collection so definitely excited to try the Matte ones, especially the Dark Burgundy! xx
