Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer 101 Celestial-Photos, Review, Swatches


I've been hearing some good words about these since the launch. Is the Apocalips really worth the hype? Read on to know more...

The Apocalips Lip Lacquer is the latest addition to the Rimmel London cosmetics family. While at Naheed's yesterday the representative swatched almost all of the shades on my hand, ( I so wish I hadn't rubbed those off) I liked Celestial and Big Bang best.

So Celestial, is a nice warm pink with a very slight hint of fuchsia. It is packaged in a cute black chubby tube with the actual color showing at the bottom. I like how the sponge is asymmetrical as that makes the application easy. The texture is buttery and I loved how it instantly paid off with intense color. It's like the power of a lipstick in a gloss. It is moisturizing and has a strong scent, which I don't really like. But it goes away after application. I had ice lolly while I wore it and it still was on my lips, it did lighten but didn't completely fade. I couldn't see it after 4 hours of wear, but I don't mind reapplying as long as the quality is worth my buck. It works as a lip plumper too. So girls who are looking for a pout are going to like it. Its great for both day and night wear and all skin tones. A little pricey but worth the purchase.

The Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer comes in 8 shades (I wish they had more). The tube contains 5.5 ml of the product.

Rating: 4.5/5

Conclusion: Rimmel claims, "It's neither a lipstick nor a gloss... It's BIGGER than both!" and I kind of agree with the statement. Recommended? Of course yes!
