Rimmel Apocalips


I know I only did a Rimmel yesterday but something reminded me I had this and I wanted wear it while filming todays videos (up today, Thursday and Saturday – slightly off schedule this week) so here it is. I stayed away from the Apocolips for so long because people were raving about them so much it annoyed me, haha. I had so many requests to review them and even more to compare them with the YSL and L’Oreal glossy stains which further riled me as they are nothing alike.. I was obviously going through a bit of a ‘cantankerous old bitch’ phase but I’m over it now so am happy to tell you what I think..

The packaging is okay, I like the applicator and the shade range is also pretty good. Each colour is so colour packed there is not ‘bad’ pick but I chose the signature red-pink and am very tempted to get a couple more. It goes on smooth and is beautifully glossy yet relatively long wearing, it’s NOT a stain, it’s a liquid lipstick and it’s not kiss proof or marketed as budge proof so I’m not sure where the glossy stain confusion came in but it doesn’t compare.

One thing I hadn’t noticed prior to taking these photos was how badly it bleeds. I would usually take photos immediately after applying something but on this occasion I filmed a tutorial followed by two other videos prior to getting out my camera for this post.. it was only maybe an hour and I think you’ll agree the bleeding is pretty excessive. If I wore this on a night out I think I would play it safe and use a lip liner but there’s nothing to say it would contain this kind of formula.. have you tried it? So yeah.. I like it but that was a little annoying.
