Rimmel Apocolips | Celestial & Apocaliptic



Hello Ladies!

Yes I know, yet another review on those Apocolips things! It seems the entire beauty world has gone mad for the latest offering from Rimmel (can they do no wrong lately?) and I was no different! I rushed to my local Boots in desperate search for them on the day they were released and was delighted to see there was some left! 

The shades I picked up were 101 Celestial and 303 Apocaliptic. Celestial is a gorgeous muted rosey pink, which is perfect for an everyday look, and Apocaliptic is a vibrant fuschia pink similar to the Revlon Lip butter in Lollipop! I just want to take a moment and talk about the packaging, call me easily pleased but I quite like the fact that you can see the colour at the bottom of the tubes, saves time when you're rushing in the morning and don't want to grab loads and start looking at the names for the one you want!



 Now I have been dying to try the YSL Glossy Stains for quite a while now but when I heard that Rimmel were releasing the Apocolips I decided to hold off and see how good they were and I was not disappointed! I don't think they are as glossy as the YSL Stains but the pigmentation of the Apocolips are out of this world (pardon the pun) They literally glide onto your lips and are completely opaque in the first coat! They are so long lasting on the lips it is unreal! I wore Celestial out to lunch the other day, I ate and drank to my hearts content and went to the bathroom after to touch up but there wasn't any need to because the colour was still in place and looking the same! They fade really evenly and slowly so you would only really need to top up once or twice throughout the whole day which I think is amazing! 

The only complaint I have about these fabulous products is the smell, it's quite similar to the lipsticks and I'm just not loving it! Apart from that I am absolutely loving these beauties and I really want to get my hands on "Big Bang" next which is a gorgeous red colour, I think it would be fab!

Have you tried any of these? What colours would you recommend?

  4. I picked up 'stellar' the other day, seems that Apocaliptic is very similar though! I found my hair kept on getting stuck to my lips and smearing the colour over my face..so annoying! x

  11. The shades you picked up are gorgeous. I bought Stellar using my Boots Advantage Card points (score!) :) it's gorgeous and I'm simply inlove with it. I agree with you about the scent. Wish it had a vanilla scent instead of the standard lipstick scent. We can't have it all I guess :)
