So I picked up these Rimmel Apocalips a few weeks ago and I have to say I’ve gotten great use out of them. I am thoroughly impressed with these little gems!

The are currently retailing for £5.99 at boots and Superdrug and I’m sure you could also find them online. I bought them on a 3 for 2 offer at boots.
These are very creamy and apply very well. They have a doe foot applicator with a small well in the centre. This well helps the product apply so well. You don’t have to put a blob in the centre of your lips and then spread the product over your lips to get an even coverage. This applies similar to a lipstick and feels like a lipstick on your lips. There is no sticky-ness at all. These are definitely the lip lacquers they claim to be! No lip gloss type issues at all.

The longevity of the product is also surprising! I applied a coat of this at 8am and I check it again at 10.30 after a cup of tea and a glass of water – although there was transfer on the cup and glass, I still had colour on my lips! I was able to rub my lips together and I could still feel the moisture of the product there and the colour was still there. So impressed. I had to touch up after lunch and then again before I left for the evening. So twice throughout the day is not bad at all!
When the colour did fade, it did so gracefully. There was no patchy-ness, no odd drying of my lips which can sometimes lead to wee bally odd things on my lips – a mix of product and dead skin. So I’m happy that it faded so naturally. It didn’t dry my lips at all.
I recommend giving these a whirl if you fancy something different to your lipstick!
