Very comfortably priced at 475 in India, available at all Rimmel counters as of now, in Pune, try Parcos and Central.:) I saw may be 5 pieces of each shade so rush for you fav shade, as soon as you like any of the 9 I review.
The color which I wanted to review first is a nude,it is a slightly frost nude shade and it has these mauve-brown undertones, for Indian skin this can be a great nude lip gloss(cream) and the shade has very very finely milled shimmer in it, it kind of renders a glaze to the product instead of a shimmer twinkle,hence I picked it up.
They have some shimmer shades, just a couple I think called star gazer,more or less all of the others are creamy, or perhaps a couple are pearly glazy,like this one, none of them are OTT.I would say the color choices are awesome, reds, hot pinks, nudes and plums,I dont blame myself for picking up nine,:P
The packaging is simple, honestly I do not find it much attractive, the whole cut cap, the plastic, not a fan, but the see through tube is cool, the shade is visible at the bottom. The wand is different, it is chiselled, and the slant tip has a hole in the center which kind of collects some more product so you dont need to dip the wand into the tube often, it is kind of annoying when your gloss wand picks up such less product something like Rimmel’s own vinyl glosses do.
The color like I said twinkles to a mauve brown and more or less is a nude, but it does not wash me out, it suits me fine for a dull shade but does not brighten the face up, this can be good for medium to dark skin for office and day wear, since it is not a pop of color neither is it shimmery, just a slight glaze.Now honestly this is not the best shade I picked up, probably one of my least fav, the color is like a simple thick glossy brown, nothing creamy about it like the rest of the apocalips.
The texture is twice as thick as a gloss but it is not creamy, it is a simple gloss, it bleeds lesser, it gives you an even coat, covers pigmented lips, and then it kind of vanishes in two hours, so three hours is what you are looking at for this color since it is not particularly creamy, it is just fine, a thicker gloss.
I will review some bold creamy and very long lasting shades soon,as and when I try them out well.
