Rimmel Apocalips Stellar

sreda, april 10, 2013


You have no idea how long I've waited for this lip lacquer. Rimmel's Apocalips have been all over the internet for months and almost every blogger is raving about them. I ordered mine as soon as feelunique.com had them in stock and given my current luck, the package got lost. You have to wait 30 days to contact them and by then they were out of stock, so I received a refund. I finally found one on Asos and I got it in four days.

Lip lacquer is just fancy wording for a liquid lipstick and this is a very pigmented, thick liquid lip colour. It reminds me a lot of Essence version of matte lip creams, but this is thicker and glossier. It's better if you apply a small amount otherwise you'll end up with too much. The scent is just awful. I can't describe it, it's just weird, but you only smell it when you're applying it and not when it's on your lips. Now that I've been wearing it every day for a week, I don't notice it as much. It lasts so long on the lips and leaves a lovely stain behind. Like Essence matte lip creams, it does transfer on the glass when you're drinking, however it does survive a meal. It has quite a glossy finish that lasts for hours, but gets less shiny as it's fading and ends up matte at some point. After a week, I can report that it doesn't dry out my lips at all.
Stellar is a very interesting colour. It's like you'd mix a bright red with bright pink and coral. It looks more red in dim lighting and more pink in sunlight. It's also quite bright, like there is a hint of neon in it. All I can say is, I freaking love it.

Here is a comparison of Stellar with Essence matte lip creams in Smooth Berry and Silky Red. I think it looks like a mix of the two, but brighter. Click on the picture to see a larger view.
Though I prefer the texture and scent of the Essence ones, I just love the colour of Stellar and I think that Apocalips has a beautiful selection of shades.

Rimmel is available almost everywhere with a notable exception of Slovenia (I'll probably will never get over that, we used to have Rimmel about 10 years ago). You can get Apocalips lip lacquers on feelunique and Asos. I paid 5.90€, while it's 7.49€ on feelunique.

So what do you think, does it suit me?

And another thing that I completely forgot to mention, even though it's been more than a week since I created it. I made a directory of every product reviewed on this blog, which you can find in the bar under the blog banner. It sure took a long time to make it, but it makes everything more organised. Truth be told, it was more meant for my use, because I got tired of searching for my own reviews to link in new posts. I hope you find it useful. 

Thanks for reading!

  3. Super fotke in res ti odlično pristoji! Tekoče šminke imam res rada, tako da bi si jo z veseljem kupila. Verjetno si jo tudi bom, takoj ko bom ugotovila, da je ban kupovanja izdelkov za ustnice dovolj dolgo trajal.;)

    1. Je bil včasih pri nas v DM-ih, ampak res že leta nazaj. Sem kupila moja prva laka za nohte od Rimmla. Prav spomnim se še stojala, pa čeprav je bilo to okrog 12 let nazaj. Res mi ni jasno zakaj ga samo pri nas ni.
