Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer - Nova


Rimmel Apocalips

Now, I am going to be completely honest, being a lip product junkie you would have thought that I would be bursting at the seams to get a hold of this but I wasn't.  I seen a few post from America with swatches but they didn't really appeal to me. I think the packaging is maybe a big factor of this, I am not drawn to it.

So today I was having a little walk around Boots when I spotted them and since there has been a lot of hype around them I thought I would swatch some of the colours from myself.


UH OH, I'm in love!

I swatched  Apocalyptic, Nova and Stellar.  Stellar was the colour I was drawn to but I thought it looked a lot like my glossy stain so decided to go for my second option, Nova.  A soft pink perfect for day time.  Having been looking for a new work time lip product, this shade seemed perfect.

The consistency of these products is what impressed me the most.  The are really creamy, and I really like the applicator, it's really soft, these just glide on with ease.  I would say they are a liquid lipstick, good coverage, pigmentation and a little shine.

When applied it dries matte but the colour pay of if fantastic, I may now have to go back and pick myself up some more!



I purchased this in-store from Boots for £5.99 - They will be available at Boots online on 23rd January.
