Review | Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar, Apocaliptic & Nova

When I first heard about the Rimmel Apocalips, I was intrigued. I have heard a lot of raves about these lip lacquers and they have been named as a great dupe for the YSL Glossy Stains. (Who doesn't love a cheaper dupe?) Now seeing as I don't own a YSL Glossy stain I can't compare them but I can tell you that I am in love with these Apocalips.
Rimmel currently have a 3 for 2 offer across their beauty counter, so I thought I might as well pick up 3!
I chose Stellar, Apocaliptic and Nova.
Stellar - A pinky red
First of all I love the packaging. I love how the colours seem to merge with the colour of the product inside the tube. It has a cute crystal style lid which just twists off.
These have a doe foot applicator with a slight indent, which seems to contain more product, meaning when you apply the product you won't have to 'double-dip' to get extra product. 
Apocaliptic - A bright fuchsia 
The product it self is made up of a creamy consistency. They have a conditioning feel when on the lips and they don't have the dryness of a lipstick or the stickiness of a lip gloss. It glides on lovely and smoothly and you won't need to apply a lip liner before hand.
The lip lacquer staying power is reasonably good and when the shine of the product wears off, you are left with a gorgeous stain on the lip.
I do find that I have to blot my lips after application as I have found that it can work it's way on to your teeth. Not a good look!
Nova - A milky purple
Overall I am really impressed with these! The texture, finish and colour range!
These come in 8 different colours with a variety of pinks, reds and nudes. The shades are - Apocaliptic, Big Bang, Nova, Stellar, Galaxy, Celestial, Luna, Nude Eclipse
I am tempted to go and buy the rest in the collection!

Have you tried the Rimmel Apocalips? What's your favourite shade?
