Review – Rimmel Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet


Both the old and the new from Rimmel have been impressing me lately. Having never really given it much of a chance before, the whole range of Rimmel products have slowly entered my makeup stash and have quickly become my most reached for everyday items. This includes the Rimmel Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet in the shade Atomic Rose.

Similar to the original Rimmel Apocalips, the formula of the new matte version is quite liquid and slides on smooth. I can’t say I’m a big fan of the way it feels on the lips, slightly oily and dry, but once it dries the formula feels like nothing is on your lips! The Atomic Rose shade is great for a nude/rosey every day colour but can run the risk of looking quite peach/orange if applied too thickly. Just a small amount is needed for quite a few hours of coverage! I’m very pleased with my choice of shades to try this lip lacquer out!

I’m excited to try a few more of the 5 different shades released by Rimmel but unfortunately they are currently only available in the States under the name of ‘Rimmel Show Off Lip Velvet Matte’. So until my next trip across the border (which should be any day now), I’ve got my daily dose with Atomic Rose.

Have you tried the new Rimmel Apocalips Matte? What did you think of the original Apocalips?
