Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers

10/16/2013


So the entire deal with Rimmel's Apocalips ingenious lip lacquers is to get the best of both worlds - to pick the pigmentation of a lipstick and to get that creamy and sheeny look & feel of a lip gloss. I think that mostly the stunning bright shades are reviewed which actually made me feel disappointed when I got my first Apocalips tube. You guessed it - mine wasn't a bright one at all. I tend to pick up shades which aren't reviewed a lot since I always had a tendency to be drawn to things which seem rejected. It's almost as I feel the need to rectify the beauty injustice in this case. Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Out Of This World (300) looks like that unwanted sister of the most desirable shade from the light spectrum of the Apocalips range. Oh yes, I am referring to Celestial. It's that "my lips but better" pinky hue which looks a bit ghastly on me. Too chalky and thick for my liking, especially when it dries. I am stepping away from shimmer and glitter but I do like a bit of discrete gleam on my puckers. Out Of This World is just that. A very pretty cold pinky hue which is infused with tiniest shimmering particles imaginable. I don't feel them on my lips and if it weren't for this swatch, I'd never know in which amounts they were present within the lip lacquer.

Citava svrha Rimmelovih Apocalips mazalica za usne jeste u tome da pruzaju najbolje od oba svijeta - pigmentaciju ruza za usne ali istovremeno i kremasti, sjajni osjecaj i izgled na usnama koji je karakteristican za sjajila. Cini mi se da je u vecini slucajeva za recenzije odabrana skupina nijansi iz ove linije koje su izrazajnijih boja te sam se zato razocarala onim sto sam dobila sa prvom kupljenom nijansom koja je bila svijetlija. Obicno naginjem ka kupovini nijansi na koje se masovno ne obraca paznja i mora da se radi o sindromu spasavanja zapustenih/ napustenih beauty stvarcica. Kao da imam potrebu ispravljati nepravdu u beauty svijetu. Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer u nijansi Out Of This World (300) mi izgleda kao zapostavljena sestra najpoznatije od svijetlih nijansi iz ove kolekcije. Da, mislim na poznatu Celestial. Tu se radi o onoj idealnoj ruzicastoj nijansi koja djeluje prirodno ali ipak naglasava ljepotu usana. Na meni nazalost djeluje kredasto i isuvise gusto te dosta neprirodno, posebno kada se u potpunosti osusi na usnama. Iako se odmicem od bilo kakvih sljokica, pozeljan je blag i diskretan sjaj. Out Of This World mi pruza upravo to. Jako lijepa ruzicasta nijansa hladnog podtona kroz koju je ubacen jako sitan shimmer. Ne osjetim ga na usnama a da nije ovog swatcha, ne bih ni znala u kojoj su kolicini te sjajne cestice prisutne.


The "problem" with this shade is that it acts as a regular lip gloss. True, a very thick lip gloss of amazing quality and pigmentation. But this is no liquid lipstick miracle in a tube, let me tell you. It doesn't dry to a matte finish at all and stays creamy and non-drying on the lips the entire time. That is the good aspect of this shade. Extremely wearable, everyday shade which goes with everything really. Still, it isn't boring and it isn't a glorified tinted lip balm. It is exactly everything I'd expect a terrific lip gloss to be. The problem is at the pigmentation and durability claims. This isn't the one which falls in the norm, it's a black sheep in the Apocalips flock really. It lasts for good 3 hours on my lips which is definitely more than compared to the average drugstore lip gloss but it's nowhere near the raves. I'd recommend to get it if you're on the lookout for the most purchase-worthy lip gloss within the drugstore shelves. If you're after that, than you won't be disappointed. 

"Problem" sa ovom nijansom je u tome sto se ponasa kao sjajilo za usne. Okej, radi se o jako gustom sjajilu koje je odlicne kvalitete i pigmentacije (za jedno sjajilo). Ali ovo nikakvo cudo od tecnog ruza u tubici definitivno nije, to cu vam reci. Kada se osusi uopste nije mat nego ostaje kremasto te se ustvari nikada ne osusi. To su dobre strane. Izuzetno je nosivo, svakodnevne je nijanse koja ide uz sve. Ali ipak nije dosadni balzam za usne koji je blago obojen i da se samo oko toga digla prasina (kako je nerijetko slucaj sa sjajilima). Ovo je sve sto bih mogla ocekivati od jednog sjajila za usne i po tom pitanju je odlicno. Problem nastaje kod tvrdnji vezanih za trajnost. Ova nijansa nije reprezentativna za cijelu kolekciju proizvoda vec je vise kao izuzetak od pravila koja vrijede za Apocalips ruzeve. Na mojim usnama trajnost ove nijanse iznosi neka 3 sata sto je vise nego dobro u usporedbi sa prosjecnim drogerijskim sjajilima za usne iako - to nije ni izbliza pohvalama koje sam citala. Preporucila bih ovu nijansu ako ste u potrazi za najisplativijim sjajilom za usne sa drogerijskih polica. Ukoliko je to ono sto trazite, necete biti razocarane.


Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Big Bang (400) on the other hand is the perfect specimen of everything which you could read about on the blogs. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the perfect example of what the Apocalips range is all about. This is the perfect thick, liquid lipstick in a tube. This is it. It's extremely pigmented and it does rival most of lipsticks out there. It's creamy and feels very comfortable on the lips yet it doesn't have that lip glossy slip the previous shade mentioned does have. It is shimmer-free - pure pigment. I love it and I love that I've found my perfect red lip in this tube of heaven. This one does dry to a matte-ish finish after a while and then it really sets into the lips. Prior to that, it does feature quite a juicy sheen which makes lips look plump and pretty. Neither of the two shades is sticky at all, which I find to be great. The longevity on this shocking red shade is amazing. I'd say 6 hours at least on me. It gets through the drinks and even some meals almost untouched. This is truly a miraculous lip product and this one completely is worth the hype.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer u nijansi Big Bang (400) je sa druge strane savrsen primjerak svega onoga o cemu smo imale priliku citati sa blogova. Ovo je, dame i gospodo, idealan primjer o cemu se kod Apocalips linije radi. Ovo je savrsen, gust tecni ruz za usne u tubici. To je to. Izrazito je pohvalne pigmentacije i itekako se moze nositi sa bilo kojim ruzem za usne. Kremast je i jako ugodan na usnama ali nemam onaj skliski osjecaj koji sam imala na usnama sa prethodno navedenom nijansom. Uopste ne sadrzi shimmer vec - cisti pigment. Prekrasan mi je i odusevljena sam sto sam u njemu pronasla idealan crveni ruz. On poprimi mat teksturu nakon sto se osusi i  tek tada se boja "primi" za usne. Prije susenja ima jedan njezan odsjaj koji je prisutan cini mi se zbog njegujucih sastojaka. Cini usne socnim i punim. Obje nijanse su idealne i nimalo ljepljive teksture, sto je za svaku pohvalu. Trajnost crvene nijanse je nevjerovatna. Procijenila bih je na nekih 6 sati. Izdrzi konzumaciju pica pa cak bude ocuvana i nakon odredjenih jela. Cudotvoran proizvod za usne koji je vise nego vrijedan sve paznje i pohvala.


These lip lacquers feature an interesting design on the caps, quite similar to an asteroid in my mind (is this just me?). Ther've have an ombré look from black to clear which through shines the hue you've selected. Apocalips lip lacquers have a distinct and strong scent which I simply cannot pinpoint. It's rather strong so if you're funny with fragrance do test them out prior to purchase. They feature a doe foot applicator with a slight "dent" in the middle. That plus the softness of the sponge makes them a joy to apply. You get 5.5ml of lip product for £5.99 at feelunique.com. To me, they are worth the money and even more so. I still cannot get over the pigmentation of the Big Bang and how juicy it looks on the lips. Bioderma Sensibio H2O struggles to get it off entirely off the lips after hours and hours of wear. It has a shock factor and this true red shade with slight orangey undertones isn't for the weak. I'll wear it exclusively for a night out. I find that it does seep a bit into fine liner around the lips but nothing a dab of concealer cannot fix. All in all, I'd recommend to grab the vibrant shades if you want to experience the true Apocalips experience. If you're shy, you can always get a lighter alternative and finally get a good drugstore lip gloss for your money.

Apocalips tecni ruzevi za usne su interesantnog dizajna, posebno fokusiranog na zatvarace (ili cepove) a sigurno iz razloga sto je marketing ucinio svoje, mene podsjecaju na asteroide. Imaju mali ombré fazon svom duzinom pakovanja koji prelazi iz crne boje u prozirnu plastiku koja pokazuje boju ruza koji ste odabrale. Dosta su specificnog mirisa koji me podsjeca na nesto ali se ne mogu tacno sjetiti na sto. Taj je miris izrazen stoga bi dobar savjet bio da ne preskacete probu u dm-u i slicnim drogerijama prije kupovine. Aplikator je spuzvast na plasticnom stapicu i malo je udubljen. Ta mini udubina i mekana spuzvica cine nanosenje ugodnim i relativno preciznim. Dobijete 5.5ml proizvoda za cijenu od cca 5-6KM, ovisno imamo li neke popuste i snizenja u omiljenim drogerijama. Meni su vise nego vrijedni tog novca. Jos uvijek se ne mogu oteti pozitivnom dojmu koji je na mene ostavila nijansa Big Bang glede pigmentacije. Nije uvijek lako ni sa Biodermom Sensibio H2O micelarnom ukloniti zadnji trag crvene sa usana - nakon sati i sati nosenja. Nijansa ne ostavlja ravnodusnom, istinska je crvena sa blago narandzastim podtonom. Tako da, nije bas za stidljive dusice. Licno je nosim iskljucivo navecer. Primjetila sam da se blago uvlaci u borice tj. kozu oko usana ali nista sto malo korektora ne moze rijesiti (na slikama sam taj detalj ipak ostavila kako bi to vidjele). Sve u svemu, preporucujem jarke nijanse ako zelite potpuno Apocalips iskustvo. Ako ste stidljivije prirode, uvijek mozete nabaviti njeznije nijanse te u njima dobiti napokon kvalitetno drogerijsko sjajilo za usne.

  4. Inače ne kupujem ove shimmeraste nijanse, a kod nas ih je stiglo najmanje 2-3, stvarno nisu fer što su zapostavili nekoliko najpopularnijih. Ja ću uzeti Stellar, nešto uvijek bježim od crvenih sjajila i sjajnih ruževa :)
