Rimmel’s Apocalips have only just officially launched in Ireland, but of course we’ve been able to get our hands on them for ages in places like Boots and Superdrug. So lots of you will have tried them and realised for yourself just how very, very good these liquid lipsticks are.
I’ve been a fan of this type of formula for a while now – Stila, Hourglass, Lancome, Essence and Collection all have good offerings – but these are definitely up there with the best. They’re creamy, impressively pigmented and go on nice and smoothly.
The finish isn’t glossy but it does have a sheen – satin probably comes closest to describing it – and they’re so comfortable to wear. They also claim to be longwearing and while I probably wouldn’t go that far, they last a decent length of time and much, much longer than a gloss. There’s no annoying stickiness, but they do transfer quite quickly so serious tea drinkers can expect to regularly reapply.
Rimmel Apocalips in Luna
There are 8 shades in total, 7 of which I was sent by the brand. Luckily, I had purchased the 8th myself, weeks ago, so I have the full house to show to you today. Here’s how I’d describe the shades:
- Celestial – dusky mauve toned pink
- Galaxy – a mid toned plum
- Apocaliptic – fuchsia pink
- Big Bang – true red
- Nude Eclipse – a beige toned nude
- Nova – creamy medium pink
- Stellar – bright, punchy pinkish red
- Luna – creamy, peachy tangerine
All are really well priced at €7.95, and out now. Have you tried them, and do you have a favourite?
