The Apocalips is now

These Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquers have had quite a lot of attention in the run up to their release last Wednesday and after recently purchasing two I can see why. They are called lip lacquers but are more of a matte lipgloss or liquid lipstick. At the moment there are 8 in the range to choose from; Galaxy, Stellar, Luna, Celestial, Apocaliptic, Big Bang, Nude Eclipse and Nova and as you can see the names feature around a space theme.
They range from a deep mauvey pink (Galaxy) to a bright red (Big bang) and also nude shades. The two I picked up are quite similar but I wasn't a fan of the nude and felt i had too many red shades at the moment. I got Celestial for a 'your lips but better' shade and Galaxy is the same kind of shade but darker so better for a more evening/ dressing up look.
I love the Celestial colour and think its my favourite, it stays on a long time and is more on the matte side than the glossy side- which I prefer, I've already worn it every day since buying it. I like Galaxy but think it's a tad too dark for everyday wear. I really like the packaging they come in, and I think for £5.99 in Boots or Superdrug at the moment you can't go wrong.

What do you all think? Have you tried any of the Apocalips? Or are there any you'd like to buy?

  8. Galaxy looks great! I decided not to purchase any as I do own quite a bit of lip products, but reading all these rave reviews makes me doubt my decision ;)

    1. They are quite different to anything I own, best way to describe them is a liquid lipstick or matte gloss?

  26. I wasn't too fussed about these because I thought they were a gloss and I dont really like shiny lips but after reading your review saying they are more matte I really want to get one! Celestial looks like a lovely coral colour! Xx

    1. I'm not a fan of lip gloss either, but yes these are more matte and kind of sink in more instead of the 'film' than glosses leave :)
