Rimmel Apocalips in 'Stellar' and 'Big Bang'



Rimmel Apocalips
'Stellar' and 'Big Bang'
£.99 Boots

The Rimmel Apocalips are still causing quite the stir in the blogging world with them popping up on various blogs all the time
After reall liking the first two I purchased, Apocalipta and Luna, I bought another two to try out
Both Stellar and Big Bang are completely out of m comfort zone
Every time I venture into bright lip territory either my mum or fiance makes a comment on how bright my lipstick is...normally this is quite mocking and makes me take it off straight away
But I've come to the decision that I will no do this anymore and I'm going to embrace the bright lip and enjoy it!


Stellar is a stunning colour, it's a rosy kind of bright pink and really wearable for such a bright shade  
I think this one is my favourite so far and one I can see myself reaching for over the summer a lot, it's already earnt it's place in my holiday make up bag
I love how glossy these are on the lips but once the gloss has gone they leave behind a gorgeous stain, with Apocalipta I found this to fade really unflatteringly but so far Stellar has been ok.

big bang

Sorry about the super blurriness in the swatch but you ge tthe idea on colour
Big Bang is definitely a true, bright red
I wore this on a recent night out and have to say after one too many cocktails I ended up with a clown like red smile as this smeared all around my lips and stianed the skin...not a great look
Al though the Benefit MUA advised I try a barrier of concealer (specifically the new Fake It) which should stop this from happening
Or I could always not have the extra cocktails!

Over all I am really loving these lip products and will definitely be picking up a few more
Celestial and Nova look like lovely everyday shades, pefect for the office!

Have you ried the Apocalips range yet?
