I bought this colour in big bang and the saturated colour was very impressive. It doesnt have the sticky texture of other lip products that are halfway between gloss and lipstick and i really liked that. On the other hand, it didn't moisturise my lips the way i thought it would, it started peeling after around 2hrs and i had to re apply.

Pigmented and long-lasting.
I have Apocaliptic and Aurora, they have an amazing range of colours. I was surprised at the strength of the colouring, it was pigmented so the colour will continue through the day. It is quite liquid-y and maybe difficult to put on neatly (because of the colour, again) so lip liner is your best friend here. Additionally, you need to moisturize your lips before using because it will seep and leave an unattractive texture. The price makes it very worth it and I kinda, totally love it.

I own this in nude eclipse and it is great, the applicator is designed to hold some of the product so you can apply a generous amount to your lips.
It's glides on effortlessly and has a lolly like taste, the pigmentation is wonderful and it lasts quite some time on the lip without going too dry or tacky.
It has just the right amount of glossiness without being over-powering.

Vibrant colors, nice glossy finish
I have this in celestial and nude eclipse. The colours are brilliant and stunning and give a lovely glossy shine and deep tint. It's very longlasting and good quality for a good price

Having not been a fan of the "nude" look, I was reluctant to try it but this product soon changed my mind that I can pull it off! I bought colour Nude Eclipse. It's such a versatile colour - you can use it alone or tone down a lip pencil or lipstick that is too bright. Overall, I'm now a nude lip convert - thanks Rimmel for a lovely, creamy product. The shine lasts quite a few hours but doesn't feel heavy or sticky.

Luna looks beautiful in the tube but geez it is impossible to get an even application. Ignore the light ones and get the bright ones!
Big Bang (Bright red) and Apocaliptic (magenta) are absolutely stunning! This lip lacquer is very pigmented and long lasting. Only one coat is enough to get you full colour intensity and stay on for hours. It doesn't bleed but using lipliner definitely can help to achieve a more refined neat line.
However, it gets quite drying when the initial shine diminishes and accentuates lip lines. Applying some lip gloss is an easy solution.

gorgeous colour, stunning looking lips
What's not to love - great range of colours, beautiful shine and lips that looks sensational after you put a coat of Rimmel's Apocalips on! It stays on for a good amount of time and makes my lips feel soft and kissable.

Amazing shine and awesome colour payoff!
I can't believe I hadn't tried these earlier! They are absolutely amazing and are well beyond what I had expected. First and foremost, the colour payoff is ridiculous - not sheer at all, and goes on non-streaky, and is smooth and creamy. As far as colour selection goes, there aren't many choices, but they range from nudes to reds. I bought the apocalips lacquers in two colours - celestial and apocaliptic. Celestial is a very pretty pink (almost baby pink, but not quite so cool) and apocaliptic is again, a very cool toned purpley-red. Both are gorgeous colours.
The shine is another thing I want to give props to - there aren't very many lip products out there that get the shine just right. Some are way too shiny or greasy, and others have next to no shine. These are the perfect medium, with absolutely no stickiness. Even with dry lips, they in no way accentuate any flakes or dryness and are very moisturising.
I bought these at half price at Priceline. I might just have to go back and get the whole colour range! They're that good!

I love the vibrant shades of these lip lacquers, they're super pigmented and make your lips look sensational. I have the shade Big Bang, the bright red and like it. Staying power isn't amazing though, and you must make sure you exfoliate your lips beforehand or risk a red ring around them... not a good look.

I was a bit skeptical about this product as I'm traditionally a lipstick or crayon girl rather than lipgloss. I received my first one for free as part of a bonus. The feel and colour really surprised me. It wasn't too sticky and had the most gorgeous colour. I raced out and bough another. My only con is that I wish it lasted a little longer.
