Rimmel Apocalips: Across the Universe


A couple of weeks ago I was browsing around Tesco when I saw the makeup discount basket. I love this basket, I always find some awesome products! This time, it was Apocalips. I'm so glad I found this! I've been wanting to try these for so long, but always put it off. I'm not sure why I did, but now I want more, they're awesome.

I decided to go for Across the Universe, a gorgeous red. It's so pigmented, I literally couldn't believe it when I first applied it! I would say it was a true red, and I love the fact it's a slightly deep red. It could take you through these dark-lipped months and then back into the Christmassy reds with no problem.

I love the packaging of Apocalips, it's pretty different compared to a lot of other lip products. I love the shape of the lid and the fact you can see the colour at the bottom of the tube, it just makes it easier for me to find it through my sea of lipsticks!

The wear-time is awesome, one of the best wearing lip products I own. I've eaten and drank with this and it was still there, of course some came off but it was nothing major, plus re-application with these is super easy.

Overall, I love this product! I'm really disappointed in myself for not trying them when they first came out, I have missed out on so much! The only thing I would note with these is that it's probably best to wear a lip liner as I find that it bleeds after a while, but this doesn't bother me what-so-ever and definitely wouldn't put me off picking up others!
