When the Rimmel Apocalips got released, they were immediately on everyone's radar. After seeing many a rave review, I knew I had to try them out. So when they popped up on ASOS I went ahead and grabbed a couple, but to be honest with you, they were not what I was expecting!
I read a couple of other bloggers reviews that stated that these were quite long lasting, so I was expecting them to be lip lacquers These are not lip lacquers, they are just very pigmented lip glosses. They are very very pigmented, and feel moisturising when intially applied, but over time they kinda made my lips feel dryer. The formula goes on very wet and kinda of dries down a little after a while, but your lips still feel moist overall.
My main issue with these is how they wear. My biggest pet peeve is having lip products that fade in the centre of your lips, and these unfortunately do that. This means that the darker shade, Stella, left kind of a dark pink ring around the outside of my mouth.
I think that Nova is fabulous but if you are going to wear one of the darker shades you may want to wear a lip liner all over your lips underneath, or be in a position where you can touch up easily! I would definitely get a couple more of the light shades but I think I'll be avoiding the darker ones.
I would love to know what your experience was like with these, because I am not as wowed by these as a lot of other people have been. In my opinion they weren't worth the hype!
