Rimmel London Apocalips | Review | Swatches

If you follow me on twitter you'll know that I have recently been trying out the Apocalips in the colour 400 BIG BANG. These have been raved about in the "Blogging world" since they were released back in January. As soon as they were released I went out and got the colour BIG BANG which is a vibrant red. 

I find it really hard to find the perfect "pin-up girl" red so when I saw this I had to have it. I have read many reviews saying that these are a high-street version of the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres and when I hear of a high-street dupe I have to try it! I think that the Rimmel Apocalips are extremely good in the sense that they stay on for at least 5 hours without having to reapply, the colours really pigmented and the doe foot applicator makes the application very easy. 

The only downside of this I think is that it does bleed, I have started using my MAC lip liner in Cherry when using the apocalips as I find there is nothing worse than when a lipstick/gloss bleeds. The other issue I had with it was the taste/smell it reminded me of powder paint that I used to use when I was at school (remember those powder paints that you had to mix with water and could never get the right consistency) but I can put up with those issues as the colour is so amazing, I am definitely going to try the other colours. 

You can buy these in BOOTS and they are £5.99 each, they come in 8 different shades I think that my next purchase will be the colour Apocoliptic!

Have you tried Rimmel's Apocalips? What did you think of them?



  1. Ooh I love the look of this product!
    None of the other Apocalips reviews have made me want to try them, but this one really has, in this shade too! :)

    1. It is lovely. Its definitely the perfect red! x x
