Rimmel Apocolips in Big Bang & Where To Buy Them


  This is another item I received from my U.K. makeup swap with Jess from J.S and Makeup.  Rimmel Apocolips have not yet been released in North America.  I found two online stores that ship these for free worldwide and I will list them below.  Rimmel is usually pretty slow with releasing their new products over here but hopefully they'll be in stores soon as I think this lip colour is amazing.

  Rimmel Apocolips are essentially a glossy lip stain which is why I was attracted to them in the first place.  I love the look of glossy red lips but my past experience with them is that they migrate all over my face and end up in my teeth.  This product is very easy to apply precisly and I found blotting it an unnecessary step as it just removed most of the colour.  I wore this out on Friday night and it lasted through a few drinks (and poutine) and didn't smudge at all.  It felt really light and moisturising on my lips.

  Big Bang is a bright red shade that leans towards the warm wide.  It's pretty similar to another red lipstick I own, Topshop Mischief.  I actually think I prefer this as it feels lighter on the lips than a traditional lipstick and lasts much longer.  It is worth noting that Rimmel Apocolips smell like watermelon so if that's not your thing I wouldn't recommend them.  The smell is much more subtle than other Rimmel lip prodcuts though and it disappears with time.

Availability: ASOS and Feel Unique

    1. It'll be nice to swatch them in store but ordering off ASOS will still probably be cheaper!

    1. Thank you Vicky! I'm not a huge fan of the traditional Rimmel "scent" but have to admit this is more subtle than their lipsticks (which give me a headache).
