Rimmel Apcalips Lip Lacquer [Review & Swatches]

Sunday, July 7, 2013

Rimmel Apocalips hit the blogspehre like storm and finally I get a chance to review one of the most hyped product of 2013!!! 

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer 

It's the end of colour as you know it! The intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhqnced by a satin smooth shine. It's neither a lipstick nor a gloss... It's BIGGER then both.
Available in 8 shades.

My Verdict 

By now, everyone has heard of the Rimmel Appocalips as soon as they hit the market they spread like with a speed of bullet in a blogspehre because of their A-HA-MAZING color and super pigmentation as you don't need to layer it up just a single swipe and you are done! I'd say Rimmel Apocalips is a liquid lipstick loaded with pigmentes and upon application it gives glossy shine but within an hour or two glossy-ness disappears leaving a beautiful stain finish.I've got it in shade Nova which is very pretty, blue based bright barbie shade which is perfect for summer and I love wearing it as a stain/tint along with having a nude pink lip liner underneath and when I'm in a mood to enjoy it's brightness at it's fullest I love it even more that how it instantly brightens up my face without looking so overdone. 

The formula is quite creamy and thick and so far I didn't notice any bleeding/feathering issues. It glides on smoothly and doesn't feel sticky at all as Rimmel Apocalips loaded with pigmented just a single swipe is pretty enough and turns into a stain finish. As the formula is quite creamy it tend to get slippery upon application that's the reason why you have to be careful don't apply TOO much product or you may ended up having mess all around your lips. The formula is quite moisturizing and dries into a semi-matte finish which could be a problem for the ones having dry/flaky lips or in colder months but till now I didn't face any such issues.

The weartime however is not that bad either. It stays on me for about 3-4 hours without eating/drinking which is not a an issue for me it lasts better then a lip gloss. After 3 hours it leaves behind a beautiful tint on my lips. I quite like the current packaging as I find it's super cute and wonderful apocalyptic theme. The doe foot applicator having slight despression that gives a hold for precise application and enough product for application in just single swipe.

All in all, I absolutely in love with these lip lacquers and inspite of having just few cons I do think they worth the hype and I just can't wait to try out some other shades.

My Rating


I've got my Rimmel Apocalips from Rimmel Counter Safeer Mall, Ajman Branch priced 50.00AED and available on all rimmel counters and boots. However, if you are residing in Pakistan you can get them from Just4girls or BeautyArena.pk for 995.00 PKR or can be purchased from all superstores nationwide.

What do you think about them? Have you tried Rimmel Apocalips yet?
