Rimmel| Apocalips


When I first saw pre-relase blog posts popping up of these, I'm not going to lie, I got pretty excited. There wasn't one colour I didn't want. I went into Boots the other day and was just having a wander when I came across them! I could of died of excitement. Although at the same time I was out right confused. My Boots isn't a big one so why where these out already?! I was positive they weren't due out for a little while longer. 
After making David stand for ages while I swatched and then taking an age to decide which colours I was going to get (this was a really hard decision! I would of got them all if I could of) I eventually decided to get Celestial and Stellar. 

Stella was actually the colour I was least excited about when I first saw swatches of them online but after seeing it in real life, I fell in love. It's a colour that I don't really have in my collection. It's a hard colour to describe as it's basically a pinky coral but I personally think it's a slight red as well. It's an odd one in my opinion but it's absolutely gorgeous and one that can be worn just to add a pop of colour and just finishes a face/outfit. 

Celestial is pretty much a my lips but better colour, that leans towards the pink side. The colour reminds me of the Collection 2000 Cream Puff Lip Cream in Cotton Candy. Again, I think this is the kind of colour that everyone should have in their collection. 



I wore Stella to London yesterday to give it a little test drive it passed but it's not perfect! The Pigmentation is great. The wear time, it isn't fantastic but it's not bad either. I'd say it lasted a couple hours (without eating) but eating it came straight off. It does however leave a stain. I'm not sure if the lighter colours would but Stella did. 


The doe foot applicator I'm not sold on. It has a hole in the centre which means there is enough product to do your whole lips in one go, I however found this was far to much and ended up having to scrape it off on the tube, which I can see getting quite messy. Apart from that I like the applicator it's big enough to just sweep over the lips and leave nice clean lines. 


Although these are a lip lacquer they have a glossy finish but they are not sticky like a tradition lip gloss. The gloss does wear off though to leave you with a matt shade and then eventually a stain. 


I wouldn't say I am blown away by these but I do like them and will definitely be picking up some more of the colours from the collection. If you want to see the full collection and some lovely swatches check out Katie Snooks post here
