Today saw the launch of the Rimmel London Apocalips which has been one of the most talked about launch of 2013 makeup wise. Rimmel is well known for their drugstore priced products consistently maintaining very high quality beauty treats.
I popped into Boots after Uni and found myself swatching all the eight colours the range has to offer. My hand was covered so much, that when I went to the till the lady was nice to quickly hand me some wipes! I thought this was hilarious and ironic after chatting on twitter about #bbloggersproblems :) Me and the sales assistant then got talking about how nice the product looked etc.
The shades I bought were with the 3 for 2 offer they currently have. Of course there is the option of buying them at £5.99 each. These are the shades I popped into my shopping basket:
I found that the packaging is super nice replicating the edges of a diamond jewel. They applied well on the lips but I found Luna was a little streaky but with a little blending in or blotting once, it is fine. The finish is not glossy but leaves a sheen that is very long lasting as it acts as a lip stain. The texture is creamy and slightly moisturising. You can access a good lip product by it's pigmentation... and yep it certainly ticks those boxes!
I am impressed with the colour range and found the red one was so pretty I can see this selling out, however I'm not sure if it would suit me very well. You are bound to see a shade you love and I know there is at least one to suite every skin tone.
Growing up, I have been told that purple suits me and I find it goes well with my complexion, so it comes at no surprise that my favourite has to be Galaxy! I do love my pinks, but if you are looking for a lovely purple shade, this is the one.
For those of you on a spending band I really admire what you are doing so I don't want to tempt you too much, but how about using your boots points for one?
What is your favourite shade?
Thanks for reading!!
