Rimmel Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet

04 November 2014


Being a massive fan of Rimmel's original Apocalips collection i was super excited to see them bring out a new matte range. When the original Apocalips came out they were a fairly new formula to the market, a sort of combination between a lipstick and gloss, i fell in love with their strong pigmentation, moisturising feel and gorgeous finish, so i was happy to see with all the matte lip products on the market at the moment Rimmel decided to bring out their own version. With five fabulous new shades to choose from includeing a great mixture of Autumn shades and pretty nudes, i chose to pick up the dark purple Meteoric Matte and the bold orange Orange-Olog both shades just jumped out at me and are exactly the sort of colours i have been loving wearing lately.
The Apocalips Matte Lip Velvets claim to provide "weightless liquid colour with a velvety smooth finish, that stays true for up to 8 hours" so how well do they live up to it? As with the original Apocalips i was instantly impressed with the quality of their pigmentation both shades are exactly as they look in the tubes, with very bold opaque colour, the actual colours themselves are just perfect Orange-Olog is what i would describe as being a proper orange lip colour not an orange toned red an actual bold orange shade and i love it, its vibrant and really brightens up the face, however Meteoric Matte is my favourite of the two, as you may be able to tell of late I'm very into my purple and plum lips and this is the most gorgeous deep flattering plum I'm obsessed with it.
They are also really lovely to wear, super light and soft with a velvety feel, and even for a matte product they don't dry my lips out at all. I find they don't dry completely on the lips like some similar products on the market so it can rub off slightly, maybe they fact they aren't 100% matte is why they are slightly more moisterising. As for how long they last, i don't agree they can last 8 hours, they certainly don't for me, i have to reapply straight away after eating and perhaps every few hours without.
Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet, are a great version addition to the Apocalips range and i think they are a lovely product, for me they don't top Bourjois version but i am impressed and might pick up a couple more shades.

Have you tried the Rimmel Apocalips Matte Lip Velvets?
