Apocalips were released earlier on this year and despite the huge hype for them I am not overly thrilled with this any more. I too was one of the many people waiting for these to be released by Rimmel, and I too was also one of the one’s raving and chatting about them non stop. I had read a lot of reviews prior to purchasing, reading lots of bloggers posts that had received these ahead of the release date so I knew exactly which one I wanted! When they were released I visited my local Superdrug as soon as I could and bought one of the Apocalips in the shade Galaxy.
There are 8 colours that you can purchase. There is a range of reds, pinks and nude colours to choose from.
My opinion of these prior to purchasing was good, as like many others probably do, If I hear that they are good, I assume that they are good. My impressions when looking, feeling and trying for the first time were a little underwhelmed. I will be honest – I was disappointed in the gloss wand and the glosses consistency too. I took one look at the product and thought “this looks way too thick and pigmented” I was right
Despite me looking at the wand and being disappointed I found that it ended up applying the product onto my lips really well. I like the shape of the wand , It’s in the shape of a tear drop which allows easy application to the cupids bow of your lip. It distributed the product evenly too
Okay, this is what disappointed me most. I hate the consistency and pigment of this lip lacquer It’s too thick! When I was reading reviews on other blogs they must have only used a grain of salt size amount to achieve the looks that they did because the second I applied what I thought was a small amount, ended up coating my lips in what felt like a paste! Yuck!
The pigment in the gloss is very, very strong. You literally only need the tiniest…And I do mean TINIEST amount of product to achieve a good look on your lips. I had to wipe a lot of the product off of the wand before applying because it picks up way too much product
So, how long does it last? I found that most of the product had wiped off after about 30 minutes of wearing. However – It did stain my lips and left a nice colour on them for around 4 hours which was good. I’m the sort of person that wants a lip product that will last all day because I just hate re applying ! 4 hours is okay but I am at college and work for 8 hours so a product that lasts this long will be in my good books forevermore !
PRICE/WHERE TO BUY
You can purchase these in Superdrug, Boots and online for £5.99
Overall I am utterly disappointed in this product. I really thought that these were going to be one of my all time favorite products but it has become my all time disappointment product. The only thing I like about this is the packaging and the stain it leaves on your lips. But as for the product itself I don’t like it
Everyone is different – Some like this, some don’t. But if you are looking into purchasing one of these please read both good AND bad reviews as I wish I did !
Thanks for reading
