Apocalips Lip Lacquers

 Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers - Celestial £5.99

A couple of months ago, Boots had there 3 for 2 offer (which lasted like a life time) and I heard a lot about the new Apocalips by Rimmel so I bit the bullet and bought one. 
Now if you've read my previous posts, you know that I am not a lippy person so I was unsure on 1. wether to get one and 2. what colour to get. I liked the look of 'Big Bang' but I think reds done suit me so I picked a more neutral lip colour and went for Celestial even though I wish I had picked up Apocaliptic as its looks beautiful. I won't go into too much detail about what they are as everyone knows about them.

My first impressions of this was that I didn't like it. The first thing that put me off was the scent. I can't describe it, it just smells horrific and I'm the type of person that bases products on smells. 
The second thing that put me off was the doe-foot applicator. It has a big dent like feature in the applicator so when I put the right amount on and give it a final go over, the product hidden in the dent goes on my lips and put too much product on them. I also do not like that it doesn't set so after a while I forget it doesn't set and I get it all over my face. Not a good look. 

However, there are things I do like about it yay!
I love the packaging! I love the lid as well as the bottom of the packaging and the colour at the bottom of the packaging is true to colour unlike some lip products. I also like the colour of it. It is a very 'your lips but better' colour but I have a few lip products this colour so I wish I bought a bolder colour like apocaliptic. I also like that it is basically a liquid lipstick with the gloss that a lip gloss gives you.
Recently, I have dug it out a bit more to see if I've changed my mind about it and I'm liking it a bit more than what I did. I don't know why when all the things I like and don't like haven't changed. 

Overall, from what they were hyped up to be, I am a little disappointed with the Apocalips but I'm determine to use is a little bit more and try to love it like others do.

Have you tried out the Rimmel Apocalip Lip Lacquers and what do you think of them?

  1. I've really wanted to try this color! I just don't know how I feel about it! I swatched it @ superdrug and dabbed a bit on my lips, and I'm so unsure! Do you think it would look better with maybe a gloss over it?

    Loving reading your blog sweetheart!

    1. I have naturally dry lips so on my lips it looks horrendous even with lip balm over it! Its suppose to give the gloss of a lip gloss but its not that glossy so I would think lip gloss would make a difference if its clear or even if its a lip gloss which is same colour just to make it look better. I find it hard to work with and it's just sitting in my draw being unloved! :( xx
