Swatched – Rimmel Apocalips in Luna, Celestial & Big Bang

Yesterday the much hyped Apocalips lip lacquer from Rimmel finally hit the shops. I’d intended to hold off on buying them until Friday when I get paid, but when I spotted Boots were running a 3 for 2 offer on them I thought it’d be rude not to buy a couple of them on the day of launch. Particularly when I noticed that Boots were offering £2 off any lipstick over £3 if you’re an advantage card holder. To be honest I really didn’t expect it to work alongside the 3 for 2 offer, but sure enough it did, meaning my three lip lacquers came to just £9.98 or less than £3.40 each!

First off I have to say how much I love the packaging. The handle is a really cool crystal shape that makes me think of kryptonite (I have no idea why!) and the base shows the colour of the product inside, making it really easy to identify which one you’re picking out if you’re in a hurry. I also love the way that it wipes excess product from the applicator as you remove it from the tube, meaning you’re never left with more product on the wand than you need.

I was amazed at how thick and creamy these were when swatched and felt sure this would translate to the typically sticky lips you get when wearing gloss. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised that not one hair affixed itself to my lips whilst wearing them which is a massive plus in my opinion.

Have you tried any of the Rimmel Apocalips yet? I’ve already got my eye on Nude Eclipse, Stellar and Galaxy!
