I Heart Rimmel Apocalips

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in "201 Solstice"

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in “201 Solstice”

Not being a lip gloss person anymore, I didn’t jump to try one of these when they first came out in Canada last year. Rimmel describes them as “neither a lipstick nor a gloss”, which I think is a good description actually. What I love about this lip lacquer is that it stays on forever! It’s very long wearing, yet also feels good (very moisturizing) on the lips. It’s not sticky either. It feels creamy and smooth. The Solstice shade is thick and opaque. They also pass the smell test – they aren’t strongly scented and have no noticeable taste (something I can’t stand in a lip product).

They do have some shine, but you can play with how you apply it to get a glossy effect or more of a “lipstick” effect:

The only sad thing for me is that out of the 12 shades, the only one I like is the 201 Solstice, a wearable rosey shade. The lighter, “nude” shades are very light and opaque and not the most flattering against pale skin. The other shades are all extremely bright pinks and fushias (not really what I personally like to wear). Fingers crossed Rimmel comes out with some more colours.

In Canada, you can buy Rimmel products at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, London Drugs, and Target. You can order online through London Drugs or Well.ca. The Apocalips retail for about $9 CND.
