Rimmel Apocalips in 'Luna' [First Impression | Review]

Dear readers,

If you follow any blogs you might have noticesd how everyone, I mean everyone, is raving about the new Rimmel Apocalips.

Unfortunately, they aren't yet available in Malta (and might not be before April) so I just had to buy them from E-bay. I got them for £4.99 each (excluding shipping) but since I bought 2 the seller combined shipping for me. You can buy it from here.

There are 8 different shades in total, but for now I just bought Luna and Stellar (I will post about Stellar in a later post).

The Rimmel Apocalips is a lip lacquer (not lip gloss), and comes in a standard plastic tube with a doe foot applicator.

What I love about the packaging is how you you can immediately recognize the colour you want just by looking at the bottom of the tube. Moreover, the doe foot applicator has a tiny well in the middle which holds some product in, and so you only need 'one pump' from the tube to cover your whole lips.

This product is unlike anything I have ever tested - it looks like liquid lipstick and not just tinted gloss. In fact it is not sticky at all even though it is a little bit glossy.

Luna is a peachy colour which will work really well for Spring.

You will need to re-apply this every 5-6 hours or so, it has great staying power. The other colour I have, Stellar, also stained my lips a bit so even after it faded off. Another thing that I like is that it doesn't look patchy when applied.

The only negative remark I can think of with the Apocalips is the smell - it had a weird plastic-y smell which thank goodness settles after it is applied.

Definite recommend, everyone should have at least one of these in their lipstick collections.
