Apocalips Lip Velvet

I missed all the hype about the first ever Rimmel Apocolips, but when I saw they released a matte range I needed to indulge! I've forever wanted to try the Lime Crime Velvetines but just never got round to it, so these are a similar thing! I went for the colour 'Meteoric Matte' £6.49 which is a bright raspberry type colour. They also do two pink shades, a darker purple shade and a red shade, but I own so many reds, I decided to opt for a little change.

The only thing I didn't like is the applicator, it doesn't have much of a sponge to it and it was hard to get good coverage of my lips (and I have teeeny lips). Because I couldn't get quite an even edge I had to use a Mac lipliner to give it a clean edge. Other than that the coverage and colour is amazing and lasts such a long time! (Especially seeing as I spent all morning eating cake at a Macmillan morning and it lasted the whole time!)

I'm definitely going to grab a few more colours to add to my make up stash! What do you think of them?

    1. Yeah that's what I loved about them too, love a matte lip :)

  2. I really like the color! But it's a shape you had to use the MAC liner in order to get the best coverage. Hey, at least it's long lasting ! :] // ☼ ☯

  3. I love the matte versions of these; the longevity is incredible !! That colour looks great on you as well :)


  4. It looks so pretty on you. I really need to try this new formula as the original slipped around too much for my liking xx
