Hey guys, I'm sure most of you have heard of the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers before! These are not brand new products as they have been in the UK for a while now, but they have been recently launched in the US. This product has confused us because both of us have had a very different experience with them.
I was very excited when I bought these and the first colour I had was galaxy, which is a dark pink with slight shimmer, it has a purple tint in it too, perfect for autumn.The second colour I got was celestial which Karen has too. It is a soft pink colour. However I will talk about the reason why I dislike these. When I wear them after a while I get a line on the inside of my lips, I have tried so many things like wiping it from the inside etc but every time I wear these the line appears, and it is not attractive at all. On me these last for about 3 hours maximum.
On the right is galaxy which is freshly applied and is shiny and fresh looking.
The pigmentation is good but they have a weird smell, also the colours are lovely and everyone can find a colour for them, but I fear wearing these unless I will be able to look at my mirror every half an hour and be able to wipe the line off and reapply them. I like lip products which I know will last on me and would not look funny after a while, so I would not buy more of these.
When these first launched in the UK, a lot of bloggers and YouTubers talked about them, which interests me hugely. The first shade I purchase was Celestial, which I believe it's quite a popular colour. I would say this is a very wearable shade and it will brighten up your face. Moreover, I think this would suit a lot different skin tones.
Nevertheless, there are two things I don't like: 1. The applicator, as it can pick up too much pigment which may ruin the application of the lip lacquer. Therefore, I advise you to be careful and try not to put too much on your lips when applying. 2. The smell, though it is not strong, I sometimes find the smell very annoying.
They are only £5.99 in the UK, which I think can justify the two disadvantages. There are more shades for you to choose in the drugstore, so definitely have a look.
Let us know how you find them if you have tried them. :)
