Hello my loves! How are you all?
Today I finally have another review for you guys! I know, I need to start doing more reviews don’t I? 😛
Today I will be reviewing the new Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Velvet’s! Let’s take a look!
From top to bottom: Atomic Rose, Orange-ology, Burning Lava. 1 coat.
Clockwise from top left: Atomic Rose, Orange-ology, Atomic Rose (I only had 3 shades, so I included this twice ;)), Burning Lava.
From left to right: Atomic Rose, Orange-ology, Burning Lava.
What Rimmel Says:
“Weightless liquid colour with a velvety smooth finish. Earth-shattering intense colour stays true for up to 8 hours. Moisturizing formula instantly increases lip moisture by 31%*”
So how do they perform?
Pigmentation: 5/5. The pigmentation of these babies is insane. They are fully opaque in just one coat!
Texture: 4/5. I love the texture of these, they are super smooth and definitely feel “velvety”. Even though they have a matte formula, they don’t dry out your lips and feel comfortable to wear, which is very important!
Packaging: 4/5. I love the packaging of these. You can see the actual colour of the shade at the bottom of the tube, and they have a classy matte finish.
Longevity: 3.5/5. The Apocalips Lip Velvet’s definitely last a long time on the lips, hours and hours. However they do not last through a meal, and you will need to touch up. But in saying that, they are easy to reapply and they don’t cake up if you go over the remnants of the previous layer.
Application: 4.5/5. I love the applicator of these. It’s very similar to the “standard” doe foot applicator, but they have a small indentation that holds extra product, so you can do your entire lips without re-dipping! Personally I still dip it in again to get a little more product to clean up the edges.
Bang for your buck (quality for the $$): 4/5. The Apocalips Lip Velvet’s retail for $15.95 AU, which I think is a very good price for the quality you receive. They are creamy, pigmented and nicely packaged, and I would be happy to spend $15.95 on them!
Overall I think these are a great matte liquid lipstick. I know there are a lot of matte liquid lipsticks around at the moment, and I highly recommend these! There are currently 4 shades available here in Australia, and I will definitely be picking up the other shade I don’t have!
The Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Velvet’s are available everywhere Rimmel is sold. Here in Australia you can find them in pharmacy’s, Priceline, and many other stockists.
What do you think of these? Would you try them? What do you think of the current matte liquid lipstick trend?
