Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer Review and Swatches : 101 Celestial

Hello Beauties ! Today I’m so excited to review Rimmel Apocalips. Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Celestial - Which I officially consider as my new lip-love in life and I’m quite serious about it. This new lip lacquer from Rimmel is one of the latest additions to the beauty world.
Lets find out if it is worth the hype …

Product Details : 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!

Price : UK – £5.99 RRP ,  India – INR 475

My Experience ?

I am a big lip junkie and like most of the girls I own Revlon, L’Oreal, Maybelline and MAC lipsticks. But still I never owned any Rimmel lipstick. I heard a lot of positive reviews about Apocalips line, so I decided to jump into the bandwagon and try it for myself. This was a random and unplanned purchase. In my previous Holiday Makeup Haul post I mentioned about these two lovely Rimmel Lip Lacquers and promised to review them ASAP.


  My first reaction on seeing Apocalips on the Rimmel counter was “I want them all”. I was lucky that I got a chance to swatch and select my favourite colours before buying. The lipcolor comes in a black tube with a curved sponge tip applicator. The sponge tip makes the lip Lacquer application smooth and easy.

The first time I applied it on my lips I was really impressed by the lovely opaque coverage. Just one swipe was enough to cover my lips. Just two swipes to glam up the look for a night out.

One thing I love about this lippie is that even after giving such a opaque coverage it doesn’t settle in fine lines. Doesn’t accentuate the cracks in my lips or anything like that; in fact, if applied very lightly. Its non-sticky creamy texture feels comfortable and light weight on lips.

The next thing I love is that the color stays put for 5-6 hours on me and leaves a lovely stain after that. Yes it does transfers on my sandwich and while sipping coffee but I tend to ignore that. The lip colour has a funny taste and smell, I can describe that as faint candy smell. Rimmel Apocalips are a great lip product and alternative to the tradition lip glosses or lipsticks.

Overall, I absolutely love this product. It lasts long, the colour pay off is incredible, and it looks great on me! I am not a Rimmel gal but I am totally sold!

BnB Tips :

  • make sure to exfoliate and moisturise your lips before application for that perfectly coloured lips.
  • I find that it can transfer and feather if you apply too much. Only a little bit is required as it is very pigmented.


Shade : 101 Celestial is a pretty warm pink colour. As it wears off, the colour is still tinted on the lips so you’ll always look as though you’re wearing something on your lips. The colour will look great if paired with blue or purple smokey eyes. For ladies who want to play it safe or who is wanting a lip colour for days when you are wearing minimal makeup there is Celestial !

Pigmentation : The colour pigmentation is fantastic and therefore the vibrant colour in the bottle is the colour that you got on your lips with no need for layering.

Texture / Formula :  It feels non-sticky, creamy and lightweight upon application. The formula is neither moisturising nor drying for me. The super smooth formula glides onto the lips effortlessly, and in one swipe, you get an opaque and vibrant colour payoff.

Staying Power : Blotting the color after application is recommended if you want the color to stay longer. I found that the colour could last up to 6 hours without touch up but reapplication was needed each time I ate something.

What I Like ? Smile

  • Beautiful color
  • Will suit all skin tones
  • Very pigmented.
