New Rimmel Apocalips Matte!


I think the first time I ever tried Rimmel Apocalips was when I first started my blog about 10 months ago! Straight away I fell in love with the colour pay off and longevity and bought loads more (I always seem to lose these on boozy nights out)! I love the formula as it looks like lipstick but with a gorgeous sheen to it, and isn't that packaging just fab?!

I'm absolutely delighted that Rimmel have decided to bring out a matte version! The one I purchased is called 'burning lava' and is the gorgeous burnt red you would imagine given the title. It's so pigmented yet has a lovely, velvety, weightless feel on the lips. I decided to wear this on a shopping trip with my mum the other day to see how good the longevity was compared to the original version, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out this actually surpassed my expectations! I set off to the shops around 11am, and only had to reapply this after lunch around 2 because I'd been eating and drinking. When I got home around dinner time I was so happy to see that it looked like I had literally just applied lipstick a few minutes ago.


One thing that someone on twitter pointed out to me was that the Apocalips original version can get on your teeth constantly if you are not careful, but this was not the case with the matte version at all, and I also noticed that this was also a lot easier to apply.


Since discovering this I have to say I've literally worn it every day, but it hasn't stopped my love for the original version, and I also bought one of those in the colour 'eclipse'! This is a gorgeous plum which I just know is going to be perfect for autumn! 

Do any of you have these products? Which version do you prefer?

  1. I didn't like the original Apocalips because it was too liquid-y for me but I think that the matte version will be a lot better.
