Rimmel Apocalips - Flippin Amazing

All hail Rimmel.  I think it's pretty impressive that Rimmel have created a lip product that can do battle with premium brands and kick their arse.  Unless you have been living under a rock you will now have heard of Rimmel Apocalips and if you have passed by a Boots 3 for 2 offer you will probably have picked up one or two.  These lip lacquers are a pretty amazing mix between a lipstick and a lip gloss,  they start out on your lips with a beautiful glossy sheen and stay on your lips as a lipstick.  They are comfortable to wear and surprisingly long lasting, when the sheen wears away you're left with a lip stain, so Apocalips are a 3 in 1 lip product.

Between myself and Sile we have picked up 6 shades and I am loving most of them, below are swatches of all the shades we have.

Although I love the texture of Apocalips I am not a fan of nude lips. If you are, Nude Eclipse is a great nude to add to your collection.
Luna is a pretty spring Coral.
Nova is one of my favourite colours and it's great as an everyday shade. It's a bright pure pink.
Stellar is a red/pink shade
Apocaliptic is a bright lively pink.

If you're looking for a glossy true red how beautiful is Big Bang.

Although there is not a huge range of colours I think Rimmel have picked the perfect selection of shades (which is why Boots 3 for 2 comes in great). In fact I think they are the core shades that you should have in your lipstick wardrobe.  So the shades are great but really the quality of these lip products must be tried, they are flippin' amazing.

 As I have said before nude colours aren't my thing but by simply mixing two (or more, it's your own choice) shades you can create your own Apocalips custom colour, Apocalips make it really easy to mix shades.   

Apocalips cost €7.95 each but keep an eye out for special promotions in your chemist.   Apocalips are one of the best lip products to come out this year and that includes high end cosmetics. I highly recommend you check them out.
