A couple of months ago I already made a post about my favorite budget lip products, Rimmel Apocalips or Rimmel Show Off as it’s called in France (I wonder, why do French people always change the names of things?) was one of them. Today I decided to dedicate some more attention to this beautiful lip product!
It’s the End of Colour as you know it!
The intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin smooth shine.
It’s neither a lipstick nor a gloss… It’s BIGGER than both!
LONG LIVE THE COLOUR!
Rimmel Apocalips comes in 13 different shades:
- 600 Nude Eclipse
- 501 Stellar
- 500 Luna
- 400 Big Bang
- 303 Apocaliptic
- 301 Galaxy
- 102 Nova
- 101 Celestial
- 304 Eclipse
- 402 Across the Universe
- 603 Shooting Star
- 300 Out of this World
- 401 Aurora
I’ve got 2 of them, 500 Luna and 501 Stellar.
Here are the swatches:
The brush is actually a hard sponge with a hole in the middle. I like it a lot: it applies an exact amount of product needed and is pretty precise.
Rimmel Apocalips 500 Luna
500 Luna is a shiny peachy coral. The shade is quite neutral, it’s not too bright.
You can almost call it a nude shade!
Rimmel Apocalips 501 Stellar
501 Stellar is a bright clean cool berry pink.
It looks really great on the lips!
I love absolutely everything about this lip lacquer: starting from the packaging, very nice modern design, a brush that applies the exact needed amount very precisely, the shades are nice, the colors are bright and clean, the finish which makes your lips shine. Also, this lipgloss lasts pretty a long time too: it’s definitely not like a lip pencil but it does last. It’s like a perfect combination of a lipstick that gives a nice coverage and a beautiful shiny finish of a lipgloss. Yep, definitely, I like this product a lot!
