Today I have a few shades of Rimmel’s Apocalips range to share with you all!
These are $15.95 from Priceline, although the shades Big Bang*, Out Of This World* and Luna* aren’t available in stores just yet! You’ll be able to buy them later this month.
The shades in the photos are…

I’m pretty impressed with the Apocalips range, and I can see why other bloggers have been raving about them! The formula is just the right balance between matte and moisturising - not too glossy, but not drying either. The shades are long wearing, and leave a stain, so your lips still look colourful after the product has been wiped away! Definitely one of the better liquid lipstick formulas I’ve tried.
I wore Luna and Nova for six hours on two different days, and neither required touch ups during that time, although I touched them up anyway because I’m strange. Touching up every couple of hours was just the added moisture my lips needed - no papaw ointment necessary! Their scent isn’t too sweet, nor is it unpleasant - fairly neutral, really.
These come with a doe foot applicator, but what makes these applicators different is the indentation (can be seen on the second wand in the second photo). This indentation is the part of the applicator that picks up product, and ensures you aren’t fighting a losing battle with an applicator that simply absorbs all of the product. The fact that this indentation is near the tip also allows you to trace the outline of your lips.
Overall, great products, and a great variety of colours for summer!
