NEW Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer Swatch


Hitting the stores this month of July is the new lip lacquers from Rimmel London. They applies like lip gloss, liquid lipstick. Absolutely super pigmented. Smells quite yum, to be honest, some kind of minty, fruit scent which I quite enjoy. Maybe I’m just on the weird side, I can already start hearing people hating on the smell. Each to their own. Mind you, I hate the sweet Elf lip gloss scents that some people love.


This so called lip lacquers are hybrid of lipstick and gloss. The darkest/brightest shades have better staining power, the nudes, well… they are nude.

- Comparison of Apocaliptic and Stellar -



What you can expect when you first open the tube. There is a stopper in the tube as you pull the applicator cap. Once opened and pulled out, it would look like more like this.


I have tested Stellar and it lasted minimum 2 hours without reapplying. Pretty good, I’d say. It only faded and left an outline on my lips because I had lunch.

I love the packaging because it is true to colour, the colour you see on the tube is what you get. :)

The doe foot applicator with micro well works fine on my lips. I did not experience any drama there.

I love these! I bought Apocaliptic and Celestial from ASOS before they were in stores here, and Celestial is a little browner than I was hoping but it still works on me. I bought Nova once I had seen it in person and I think it's my favourite :) PS...they're about half the price on ASOS ;)
