Rimmel Apocalips Celestial

Finally got my hands on one of the most-hyped lip products: Rimmel Apocalips. This has to be the most-talked about lip lacquer in recent months. I'm in Canada and we are usually delayed in receiving new beauty products. 


Rimmel Apocalips(celestial) buy here online

I got mine from Asos.com which offers free worldwide shipping. At the time of my order, they only had a few shades available. Fortunately, they had celestial which is the only shade I'm interested in.


Very sleek packaging


in the shade celestial


It is a beautiful mauve/purple pinkish shade. I am drawn to shades like this as I don't look good in super bright and vibrant lip colors.



The formula of this lip lacquer is not too sticky to my liking. It glides on quite smoothly and does not dry out my lips. It does not have a really glossy finish to my surprise. I was expecting a more glossy touch. 

The only complaint about this lip gloss is the scent and taste of it. I just cannot get over the scent. It is obvious when I apply it and can still smell it hours after I first applied. Don't know how to describe the scent but let me tell you, it is not a pleasant one. As gorgeous as all the shades I may or may not want to try, don't think I will be buying any more of these.

  2. This is such a pretty colour! I have one in Big Bang and although I love it I agree, the scent is awful :(

    1. I like the pigmentation and the application but the scent :( I now have to layer it with my favorite Buxom lip cream to counteract the scent :)

    1. I believe this is readily available in UK and States but always a few months' delay in Canada. Thank you, you have a wonderful weekend too :)

  4. This color is so cute! Too bad about the taste and smell. The taste is always a deal-breaker for me. Thanks for sharing!
