Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial Review

I know there's been so many Rimmel Apocalips reviews published. But I've waited until the massive hype has decreased slightly, in the hope you'll find this a bit more interesting. As opposed to blogging about this straight away meaning there were 20 Apocalips reviews on you feed. Also, as I've had this for quite a while I've really had a chance to try it out properly.

The shade I have is Celestial, and I was lucky enough to win this as part of Holly's giveaway. It's a gorgeous pinky colour, and I think it suits my skintone quite well, which is something I hadn't anticipated.

As for the actual consistency, when applied it looks quite glossy but dries to a matte finish. But, I personally don't find this product dries out my lips at all. It is a really opaque thick lip product, A lipstick/lipgloss hybrid, if you will.

As for lasting power, it doesn't last terribly well, especially when eating and drinking is involved. The packaging is really sleek and I love the ombre effect, I think it's a really cute touch. The lid is also really different, it's got a sort of chiselled effect.

The doe foot applicator is really soft and easy to use. It also has a slight dip in the centre, which is a perfect amount for a layer of this lip lacquer. This product does transfer, but with this shade it's not too noticeable.

The smell. I can't quite describe it. It's not pleasant but neither is it unpleasant. It's sort of cucumber-ry mixed with plastic.

Overall, I really love this product ad I'll definitely be looking at getting a few more shades!

    1. Ooooh, it's such a pretty colour!
      Yeah, once something's been hyped up, everyone goes crazy aha!!xx

  2. There are so many mixed reviews on these Apocalips thingies! I bought Big Bang when they first came out and just bought Stellar to accompany it. I really love the colours but I just find them to be a bit of a mess, they smear everywhere and like you say after eating it's just gone! Ah well, the colours are great.

    1. Yeah, the colours are gorgeous! But the lasting power isn't! And the smearing is so annoying!!xx

  3. I really want to buy one of these but I have heard quite a few negative reviews now the hype is starting to wear off so I am not sure whether I should pick one up or not :( xo
