Rimmel Apocalips - First Thoughts and Swatches

I know these have been around for a while but I'm always late to hop on the lip product band wagon as they're not something I wear a lot, I suffer from quite dry lips so I tend to spend almost all of my time using lip balm, i'll even put a clear balm over lipsticks /stains because they can get THAT dry.

I personally feel with swatches the more the merrier so heres a few swatches and my first thoughts on the Rimmel Apocalips

I really love the packaging, it's sleek and stylish and I especially love the lid shape.
It has a geometric futuristic feel with a faded black design that leaves just enough visible to see the colour clearly. 

I bought 3 colours, Big Bang (400), Apocalyptic (303) and Nova (102)

The applicator has a little well in it to help with product dispersion 

L-R: Big Bang, Nova, Apocalyptic 

Big Bang



I really love the shades I picked up and even though I don't wear nudes I even think the nudes in the collection look nice! I think Nova is my favourite as I don't have other colours like it and it's definitely more wearable in the daytime. I've not had a chance to fully test these and see how long they last and how drying they are but i'm sure it's nothing a little top up wont solve! 

They're super pigmented and apply really easily. I prefer to apply my lip products with a brush but the applicator holds enough product to apply in one coat and is shaped well enough to work around the curves of your lips.

The only gripe I have is the smell. I can't pinpoint what the smell is but it to me it's a mix between watermelon and chemicals. It really puts me off but I'm hoping i'll get used to it so I can really enjoy wearing these! 

They retail at £5.99 and when I bought them they were on offer 3 for 2 so I paid £11.98 for the 3

Have you tried these? What are your favourite Apocalips shades?


  1. These are too pigmented for me and felt sticky on my hand, but they look great on you! I am so jealous of your lovely lip shape :) x x x

    1. Aww, Well you saw that occ lip tar I got so compared to that these are positively reserved! haha.
      Thank you lovely! <3 I was scared to post them but I thought I'd just go for it! :D
