Beauty Review: Rimmel Apocalips Celestial

Today I am bringing you my first actual beauty review. I am excited but also a bit nervous so please go easy on me today! I've been wanting to do some beauty reviews for a while but have only just got enough confidence to do one. I think what finally made me take the plunge is the fact I keep going back to the amazing lippy reviews over at Taneja's Bride (which you should totally check out!)

Anyway today I am reviewing my one and only Rimmel Apocalips.  I'm sure you have seen a thousand reviews of these by now, but I thought it was a good idea to do my first review on a really great product.  I absolutely love the whole line and wish I could have them all but every time I have money I end up spending it something else (typical!)

  I chose the shade Celestial which is a dusky pink rose colour as I thought it would be perfect for summer. And I was so right! I have worn this gloss loads. I think gloss is the wrong word to really describe this product as it is very creamy and opaque and not really sticky at all. It is more like a liquid lipstick.

The packaging is very attractive and fits neatly into my small makeup pouch that stays in my handbag.

Inside is a doe foot applicator for applying the product, although I tended to apply with a lip brush. You can see there is a kind of indentation or well in the middle of the brush and that actually holds quite a lot of the 'gloss'. This means you don't have to keep repeatedly dipping your brush into the bottle.

As I said on the lips this doesn't feel at all sticky, and stayed put for a good 3 or so hours before I felt like I needed to top the colour up.  On me the colour comes out a lot brighter than it first looks. I think this could be a side effect from the  fact that despite so much sun I am still incredibly pale. 

You can still get this is Boots and Superdrug although I have noticed that some of the colours are missing from the collection now. I am hoping these go on sale so I can grab a couple more of these beauties  before they disappear.

I hope this review was okay and my giant lip photos weren't too scary. Do you own any of the Apocalips products?

  6. Great post :) your lips are lovely and full. I haven't picked these up yet because people say the scent is weird and they wear blotchy. Still on the fence I think, I like the Sleek Lip Pout Paints at the moment.
