Rimmel Apocalips Review and Swatches

Hello! I am sure you have all heard of the Rimmel Apocalips by now and if you have watched my previous videos then you will have seen me mention the three I bought! I went into town a day or two after they were released and my Boots wasn't selling them yet so I picked two up from Superdrug. About a week later I popped back into Boots and they had them so I bought another one!


The Rimmel Apocalips are a lipgloss, lipstick, lip stain hybrid and they are fantastic! On a daily basis I tend to just wear a tinted lip balm or lipstick as I don't like anything too fussy so I was interested to try these!

They are so easy and lovely to apply which is great. They have a sponge applicator which collects a lot of product so you only need a couple of sweeps of this across your lips for it to be opaque. When I first used them I honestly couldn't believe how pigmented they were and how much product transfers onto the lips from just one sweep!

The formulation is incredibly creamy and shiny. I apply lip balm before these and then apply one of these over the top and that is my lips completed for the day! I don't have to top up the colour of these at all and my lips stay nice and moisturised all day. These products don't moisturise or hydrate my lips themselves but they don't dry them out either!

When I first apply these they are unbelievably shiny and glossy! The glossiness of them does reduce throughout the day so you will need to reapply them if you want your lips to stay shiny. I don't tend to because the colour stays just as vibrant all day and even when they become more matte, they still look lovely and are not drying!


The colours I bought are Luna, Celestial and Big Bang. Luna is a gorgeous peach colour and I don't own any other colours like it! Most peaches I own are quite pinky toned whereas this one is a true peach with slight orange tones to it! Celestial is the perfect everyday shade! It's a lovely natural rose, pink colour. Big Bang is an incredible red! I love red lips and the sponge applicator makes applying it very easy with no need for a brush or lip liner. Also, the sponge collects a lot of product in it meaning I have bright red, opaque, glossy lips after a couple of sweeps!


My favourite for everyday is definitely Celestial! The colour is perfect for daytime and I find it to be a lot smoother and creamier than the others. Luna tends to sit on any dry patches a little bit more than the others for some reason. As you can probably see, Big Bang is definitely the glossiest which I love when I want to go for a bold, bright lip!

These are available here for just £5.99 each!

Have you tried the Rimmel Apocalips? I would love to know which other colours you would recommend!

  26. OK, i absolutely love the look of how these are on the lips. Look so opaque... Not a fan of sheer lipsticks/lip glosses.

    The red looks incredible. :)

  31. I have Celestial, Aurora and Apocaliptic and I think Celestial is the one I like the most - the other two are amazing too and I am also considering getting another shade, hope there are no more offers, because 3 is definitely enough ;)))
