I bought this in Nude Eclipse. I am a nude lippie junkie. I bought it on sale off ASOS for NZ$10 which is a lot better than the NZ$20+ price you pay in stores here. I am not a fan of the smell/taste when it is freshly applied but once it's 'dried' you can't smell or taste it. I like the packaging, the doe foot applicator is nice and easy to use. When I first applied this I used no lip liner, the colour was very very nude to the point it looked like concealer on my lips and made me look slightly ill as it doesn't have any pink tones to it. I removed that and used a nude pink lip liner all over, then applied this and it looked fantastic! A gorgeous nude semi matte lip! I also tried it with a brown nude liner and same results, looked great. I think this is an awesome nude for every day, lasts a reasonable amount of time and isn't drying on lips at all. I would repurchase more colours.

I bought this last year or so, after a few Youtubers and Beauty Bloggers were raving about this product. I'm not much of a lipstick person, but I guess i ended up giving into the hype.
I picked up 3 shades: 101 Celestial, Nude Eclipse and Shooting Star.

The colours are quite pigmented, but this product doesn't have great staying power. on top of that it feels sticky like a lipgloss and smells weird.

The colour Nude Eclipse was a complete miss for me. I wanted a nude colour, but this just makes me look like I put concealer on my lips and added a clear lipgloss on top of it.

This product has so many great reviews, but in the end it failed to live up to the hype.
I would not recommend this to anyone. It's a total waste of money.

I have Rimmel Apocalips in Apocalyptic shade. Got it only by chance cause I saw it for £1 on sale and really liked glam box look.

+ I think the wand makes the application really easy compared to many lip-glosses. It is also very pigmented.

- The biggest problem is that it bleeds out into lip lines! Big minus for that. Especially visible with dark colours.

Price is too high considering, that there are cheaper lipsticks that do not bleed out as much.

I have this in Meteoric Matte. It is a beautiful pink berry shade packed in a sturdy tube. The The formula is light, velvety and long wearing. It applies evenly with the doe foot applicator but lining the lips is a must with this one - it bleeds. I am on the fence with the scent. It's rather boring but that is not the primary function of the product, right? No big deal. What I really like is that it doesn't dry my lips out.

I have the shades Celestial and Apocalyptic- both beautiful and pigmented! My favourite would have to Celestial as it is a pinky nude that I can reach for anytime for any makeup look. This product is great for anyone looking for an easy, no fuss, quick to apply lip product- something you can apply without barely looking at a mirror! It has the pigment and wear of a lipstick but the sheen of a lipgloss, without the stickiness. As this isn't matte, it only lasts for 2-3 hours but it is so easy to touch up. Can be worn on its own or over a lipstick/lip liner. The doe foot applicator makes everything easier. At its affordable price, this product is a must for all makeup lovers!

PROS:
-no fuss application
-comfortable wear
-pigmented colouring
-good colour range to accommodate every skin tone
-not sticky
-affordable

CONS:
-not long lasting

I got these in the matte finish. They last long and leave a bit of a stain, which I dont mind. I love the bright red I have (blanking on the name...) and always feel happy with the way I look with these on

I have 7 of these - 6 normal ones and 1 matte one. First things first, these are incredible. The pigmentation is incredible - way more impressive than a lot of higher end products. They often have some of these at poundland or B&M for 2 and less so even more of a bargain! I have three pinks, two red and two purple. The purple matte one is gorgeous but after 6-7 hours it started to get a little too drying and I have to take if off and reapply. The normal ones last a long time too but are also very transferable meaning if you eat lunch and drink with it on, you'll find yourself reapplying it as the middle of your lips will start to lose the colour. One big disadvantage of these products is that they bleed an awful lot, meaning it spreads onto your foundation - the red ones especially even when using a lip liner. But it's well worth the money and as long as you have a good lip liner it shouldn't be too much of a problem!

So I bought 4 shades of this product on sale : apocaliptic, phenomenon, big bang and nude eclipe. First time I wore one of them was to school, I wore apocaliptic. Gorgeous, gorgeous hot pink, a bit redish a bit fucshia, just gorgeous.... It lasted all morning... But it bled terribly.... In the end of the morning when I got home, I was so embaressed to see how much it bled outside my lip line. Because I bought 4 shades and in Portugal you can not return them I decided to buy a transparent lip liner and try them like that. It works much better !!! With a transparent lip liner this product doesn't bleed at all and lasts around 8 hours !!! They loose the shiny look around the 3 hour mark but you are left with tone of colour !!! This product will transfer if you eat or drink but they wear out nicely and evenly, there will be no patchiness or unevenness. As for the colours : Apocaliptic is, as I said, a beautifull darkish hot pink with a bit of fucshia in it; Big Bang is the most beautifull red I own (and I own lots of red lip colours since those tend to be my favourites), it's a warm-sih red but it's neutral enough so that the coolest skin tone can pull it of, phenomenon is a really white based peachy nude, if your are anything darker than a light skin tone, this is not for you and nude eclipse is a pinky nude, darker that phenomenon so it is more wearable.
I'm not gonna lie, they have a really weird scent, I really don't know hoe to explain it, but once on my lips I really don't notice it. It is comfortable on the lips, it doesn't leave them feeling dry or anything like that.
Do I recommend it ? Only if you have or don't mind buying an anti-feadering lip linner, otherwise NO !!!! Without one, this product bleeds a lot.... If you use one, this lacquer will last you a long, long time on the lips while it still remains confortable and the colours are gorgeous !!

This stuff is the worst. I'm returning the ones I bought. Like another reviewer said, it just sits on the lips and gets everywhere. It doesn't soak into the lips or wear nicely at all. It smells chemically and the wand applicator is not ideal. Fail for me.

This was not for me. I want long lasting color and smudgeproof. This failed on both. It just sits on my lips and as soon as I drink something, it gets all over. The smell is not nice at all. I like the name, but that's the only positive thing.
