Product Review : Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Laquer in Apocalyptic

Hi Everyone!

You can feel the nip in the air and now its that tie of the year when we put away our pastels and bring out the deeper colours in our wardrobes. I like to do the same with lipsticks. So move over nudes and naturals and make way for the darker colours....

So today, I am reviewing a deep pink Lip gloss from Rimmel London Called Apocalips Lip Laquer

Product Price: INR 475/- for 5.5ml (I picked it up during the Diwali Discount at a lower price at

Product Claim:

It's the End of Colour as you know it! 
The intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin smooth shine.

  • It's neither a lipstick nor a gloss... It's BIGGER than both!
  • Long Live The Colour!

My Take on the Product:

Rimmel London's Apocalips Lip Laquer comes in a plastic tube with the lower part of the tube showing the colour of the product. The packaging is sturdy with diamond-like cuts on the cap. It has a doe foot applicator which helps apply the product evenly.

Apocalyptic is a rich pink colour, bordering almost on fuschia, but not quite. It is richly pigmented and gives true colour in one swipe. The formula is light-weight and non-sticky and feels really comfortable on my lips.  The formula is long-lasting, though it tends to transfer on to cups while drinking. The formula stayed on my lips for a good 4 hrs and light snaking and tea. the stain remains on my lips even after the gloss has worn off.Only downside seems to be a strange medicinal smell, but not really a deal breaker. It has a creamy finish and is quite moisturising. It applies so smoothly that there is no need for scrubbing or buffing your lips before application.

The product does not bleed or settle in the creases of the lips.

Overall, its a good product that I enjoy wearing. This particular shade will look good on a large range of Indian skin tones. 

  1. Attractive and sturdy packaging.
  2. product colour can be seen from outside.
  3. Light-weight and non-sticky formula.
  4. Creamy finish.
  5. Moisturising.
  6. Medium staying power, about four hrs with some drinking and snacking.
  7. Good applicator which helps apply product in one swipe.
  8. excellent pigmentation, gives true colour in one coat.
  9. Great pricing.
  10. Good shade range.
  1. A strange medicinal smell that disappears quickly, so not really a deal breaker.
Overall Verdict: 4.75/5
