Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer First Impression & Swatches ♡ Celestial, Nova and Apocaliptic

Have you been searching for the perfect lip product that has the amazing pigmentation of a lipstick, glossy shine of a lip gloss; something that isn't sticky nor does it dry matte or dries out your lips? You need to try these Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer, they are available in twelve shades to suit every skin tone and every mood you have!

(LOL, I sound like a TV commercial don't I?!) Honestly though, these lip lacquers are really THAT GOOD! & Today I am a writing a first impression of the three shades I own: Celestial (My absolute favourite), Nova and Apocaliptic.

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer L-R: Celestial, Nova and Apocaliptic

Rimmel London Apocalips is described as a lip lacquer that has creamy conditioning formula with pure color pigments, Rimmel claims these offers the most intense lip colors and is extreme comfortable to wear with its satin smooth finish.

First of all, I LOVE the packaging! Especially its diamond cut shaped top, I haven't seen anything as unique as this before. Rimmel Apocalips comes packaged in a 'big-head-small-body' black tube with an ombre style on the bottom. The color of the ombre part is actually made of transparent plastic and the color shown is whatever color of the lip lacquer.

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer comes packaged with one of those doe-foot applicator, I feel like it is not the same as ANY OTHER doe-foot applicator because this one applies so smooth and soft. It doesn't feel like one of those hard spongey types and it doesn't look like the doe-foot suck in a lot of the products.

Totally clueless! All I know is the Apocalips Lip Lacquer is perfect inside out! From its packaging to its applicator and its color choices to formula and scent! Oh My Gawh, those who loves a refreshing melon scent would adore this! I can't describe the exact scent, some says it smells like watermelon; to me these lip lacquers smells like a mixtures of melon and fresh veges!

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer L-R: Celestial, Nova and Apocaliptic

CELESTIAL - mauvey pink
NOVA - warm pink
APOCALIPTIC - deep pink

Out of all three shades I own from the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer range, CELESTIAL is the only one that I have tried on the lips and it is my favourite for a various reasons; in-depth review to come soon.

The pigmentation of each Apocalips is so amazing, the colors are so vibrant and beautiful, both in the tube and in person. These are so moisturizing and hydrating during wear, they don't dry out your lips, nor do they slides around or bleed. The formula feels lightweight and it glides on the lips smoothly.

Apocalips worn well for pretty long hours, even though I have only tried Celestial on the lips, I can just imagine the long-lasting hours Nova and Apocaliptic has to offer as they are both darker shades. Celestial worn well for six hours on me and when it fades, it leaves a pretty dark-medium pink stain.

product color name is printed on a sticker, with a barcode and it is stick between the cap and the tube, when opened the lip lacquer for the first time, you have a choice of either tearing up the sticker or remove the sticker over all; but the thing is, the sticker is the only part on the whole product with the color name. I made the mistake of removing the barcode sticker of Celestial, I didn't know and if I have remove all the stickers on all three tubes, I would have no clue which one is which. why can't they just print the color name on the tube, or something?

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer is available to purchase at beautybliss.co.nz (NZD $14.99 on sale) and/or makeup.co.nz (NZD $19.99).

Have you tried these lip lacquers? What is your favourite shade(s)?



  1. I have Aurora and I sold the other one I had, but Aurora is one of my favorite lip colors now! I haven't worn in awhile since I'm a bit worried of it getting all over my face. The formula is so comfortable to wear, but it never sets enough to a point where I'm comfortable with wearing it on.

    1. Now that you've mentioned it never sets, it reminds me of the formulas of Chi Chi creamy matte liquid lipsticks! I love them both ♥

  2. Ahhh! I own only one shade but initially I had either wanted to buy Celestial or Nova but in the end went with a more purplish berry shade galaxy! I do love how this formula feels on the lips, a great medium thickness and I found that it looks great after a few hours! I would love a hot pink shade too!

    1. Ooh I gotta try this galaxy too, I don't know what is it with purple and berry shades, but I have been loving them so much lately!

  3. I haven't tried the lacquers yet, but Apocaliptic looks beautiful~ I love fruity scents ^^ I still think Etude House has the best packaging though ;)

    Feel free to visit my blog, www.unicornsanctuary.blogspot.co.nz :)

    1. Of course! No one can beat Etude House, but we are talking Korean beauty vs UK beauty here, they just not on the same level to compare :)

  4. I've heard many good things about this. I haven't seen it in a store near me so I haven't had a chance to try it but I'm definitely tempted. The colors look really pretty and it sounds like they last quite well.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Ooh hopefully you get to try them soon, cause they're so amazing!
