Rimmel Apocalips


All aboard the late train! Yes I'm about 3 months late on blogging about these little wonders. I remember when these first came out and the massive hype over them caused them to be constantly sold out whenever I tried to get to even look at what colours were available. So when I eventually did I spent what felt like hours at the stand look and swatching all the colours.
In the end I went for 'Big Bang' and 'Celestial'. I chose 'Big Bang' as I love the look of a red lip on a night out but sometimes red lippy can be a bit messy after a cocktail or two. So I thought I would try out these to see what lasting effects they have.
I chose 'Celestial' as I wanted a everyday pink colour I can wear well.. everyday! I have worn 'Celestial' a couple of times and have received compliments so I know this is definitely a winner but have yet to try 'Big Bang' out so I'm excited for my next big night out so I can trial it.


Have you tried these out and if you have what colours did you buy? What are your thoughts on them?

  1. You picked two lovely colours. The only two I still want to try. I bought a few but didn't really LOVE any of them. I think I bought Apocaliptic, Luna and Nova but none of them really suit me or sit well on my dry lips.
    It's good to hear you got complements though, it must suit you! Let us know how you get on with Big Bang :)

    1. Thank you. The best way I've found to wear them is to layer them over a lipstick! :) xx

  2. These colours look so lovely - I've heard a lot about these but never tried them. I'd love to know how the red one lasts on a night out. I love a red lip too :) xx

  6. People talk about these so much but I still haven't tried them. Celestial looks such a gorgeous wearable colour, I think Im a bit scared of some of the others! x

    1. I'd say Celestial is probably the most wearable natural colour! The others are more going out colours! :) xx
