Rimmel Apocalips Review

Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang, Stellar and ApocalipticThere are countless reviews around of the Rimmel Apocalips glossy stains so I'll keep this short and sweet. I picked up the shades, Stellar a bright coral pink, Apocaliptic a bright red toned pink, and Big Bang a true glossy red, when boots had a three for two offer on.

Firstly, these glosses are the most intensely pigmented lip product I have ever used. One tiny dab is all you need to blend out to a strong lip. I like to apply these with a little dot of product in the middle and then using a lip brush and blending out to the rest of the lips. Because these are so pigmented, I find that using the doe foot applicator can apply too much product, especially to the edges of the lips.

Building these up slowly creates a beautiful rich lip colour that lasts for a long time. I don't find them particularly drying, though my lips are very dry anyway so if I need a little more moisture throughout the day I just dab a balm on top.

The only niggle I have with these is that they can transfer throughout the day. For example, on my lips, I found that if I didn't blot, then as I talked/smiled I would transfer the product from the bottom of my lip to my chin - not attractive! Although blotting helps this when I wear these I'm constantly aware of it on my lips as I'm so nervous of smudging it around my face.

Although I'm nervous of a scary lipstick disaster, so far it hasn't happened, and I still love wearing these. Big Bang especially is such a gorgeous red, really glossy and rich. And I know that they will last me forever as you need to use such a tiny amount.

If you fancy picking one of the Rimmel Apocalips glosses up from boots, they are currently on offer for £4.99. If you aren't sure which shade to chose then read this post from Katie - it has great swatches of all the shades.

  1. Thanks for this! I'm usually a lipstick kind of girl but with Summer approaching, I thought I'd get some lipglosses...only problem was that I needed a heavy application type. I've heard of these for a very long time but couldn't decide on a red...I went with Apocaliptic in the end oooh and the Nova pink! The shades look gorgeous on you! :-)
