Rimmel Apocalips Eclipse and Celestial Swatches

Today I have swatches of two of the much-loved Rimmel Apocalips lip laquers. I believe Eclipse is a newer release, though I'm not 100% sure. Swatch photos were taken in natural light.

Celestial is a gorgeous dusty pink shade, sort of 'my lips but way better' and natural enough to wear to work. Which is what I have been doing with this shade.

Eclipse did not want to photograph properly for me! The hand swatch is way more accurate to what I see in the mirror, which is a deep vampy red. It looks a true blood red on me, perhaps a little blue toned, and I love it. This is the lip colour I wore on New Years Eve and is now my go-to red.

With both shades I find these last for several hours, and don't feel sticky or unpleasant, although I do get a fair bit of transfer when eating/drinking/blowing my nose etc. Though I think that is to be expected with a gloss.

Rimmel Apocalips are available from Boots, Superdrug and most major supermarkets and have an RRP of £5.99
