Worth The Hype: Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers - Celestial, Luna & Nude Eclipse - Photos & Swatches

 Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer (5.5ml, £5.99 each, link)

Apocalips, Apocalips, Apocalips.. I hope you're not all bored of reading about these amazing, creamy, super pigmented lipstick/gloss hybrids yet, because here's another post about them!

I instantly loved the look of the Apocalips Lip Lacquers the minute I set my beady eyes on them and I was even ready to break my spending ban just to pick some up.  Luckily I had a ton of Boots points on my card left over from xmas, so the hard part was simply deciding which ones to get.

I played it safe and picked up two of the most everyday, wearable shades, Celestial and Luna, plus the token nude, Nude Eclipse, to try out.

 Nude Eclipse

Like all nude shades, Nude Eclipse will be a love it or hate it thing for most people.  I'm still on the fence as to whether it suits me or not, but regardless, I'm sure it's one that will quickly grow on me the more times I wear it.

 Luna

Luna on the other hand was love at first sight.  This beautiful warm peach shade works like magic for instantly brightening up my complexion, and it's a perfect colour for the upcoming Spring season.

Celestial

Celestial has proven itself to be one of the most popular shades on the blogosphere and I certainly see why!  This blue-toned, dusky-esque pink is so easy to wear and you can make it look brighter (as above) by applying just a little, or darker by adding an extra coat (like the swatch).

I'm a big fan of these and find them long lasting, non-sticky and moisturising.  I would recommend exfoliating your lips before applying them though, because they will show up any dryness, but other that, they're pretty amazing and well worth the hype!

Have you picked up any Apocalips yet?
Which ones are your favourite shades?

  3. I really wish I'd picked up Celestial! I bought Stellar instead as I don't have many brights but I've been wearing it muted by applying a couple of dots and blending. Luna looks really nice on your lips, after a couple of reviews I've seen I thought it looked a bit of a dodgy colour but you wear it well! xx

    1. I was tempted to pick up Stellar or Galaxy, but glad I went for Celestial for the time being. Luna is a strange one if you apply too much, but I think it suits me when I just use a little of it xx

    1. I think the trick with it is to just use a small amount at first and see how it looks :) xx

    1. Ooo yes, heard good things about the L'Oreal versions too but I think these have been more popular here in the UK :)

  16. These haven't made their way to Canada yet, but I'm so lusting Luna and Celestial! Do these dry out or cake up at all?

    ReplyDelete

    1. They can go a bit cakey if you apply too much (you only need a tiny amount because they're super pigmented!) but I haven't had any issues with them being drying x

  17. I think Luna looks like my favourite :). x
