Rimmel Apocalips #102 Nova

Thursday, 12 December 2013

I've seen the new rimmel apocolips EVERYWHERE in the blogging world. They've been so popular and, although I'm not normally a gloss lover, of course I ended up caving. I found myself at the rimmel stand in boots with a hand decorated in every shade from pink to red imaginable! Eventually I  decided on #102 Nova.
So I was seriously impressed with the range of shades available! Each and every one produced a glossy, extremely pigmented colour which made it even harder to choose! In terms of the formula, I do find this to be a little sticky. As I said before, I'm not one for glosses and this is probably why I'm not so keen on the finish, but the colour and pigmentation is absolutely perfect. I also love the applicator as it's the perfect size and bends slightly to catch every angle. It has a little dip in the middle which catches product, meaning you don't have to keep loading up the brush. If you like a glossy finish (and this is one of the glossiest I've seen!) then this is perfect for you! It definitely deserves a place in my collection and I'd even consider ubuying one of the reds to try out as they look GORGEOUS, but I've come to the conclusion that I'm more of a matte girl myself.


  1. This looks gorgeous, I love the colour I'm not keen on sticky glosses though. x

  2. These formulas are amazing - they feel so wonderful to wear and fade really well too. This is a very pretty shade! Xx


  3. I only have one but I do love it for a bold look

  13. Whoa! This color does wonders. Sure, it looks great on the applicator but I don't think I would have liked it as much if I hadn't seen it on. I've wanted to buy Apocalips for a long time now, but have hesitated for some reason. After seeing this now, I'm definitely going out to buy this...probably in this exact color haha. Thanks for the review!

  14. I'm not a big fan of this Rimmel Lipgloss/Stains, but this color really does look very pretty, I may have to make an impluse purchase and buy it. Thanks for the great review :)

  15. Lovely post! I had a number of these and I agree about the pigmentation. You can use them really effectively as a stain and the dry matte. :) I really like them! :)
