I am a avid MAC Lipglass Cremesheen Glass girl, so the recently released the Rimmel Apocalips, are a new venture for me. Nude Eclipse is the lightest shade from a range of 8; the next two lightest shades are Luna, a orange with hints of coral and Celestial, a pink made for girly girls and the range also includes bright reds, pinks and plum shades all with space-related names (although this was pointed out to me).
The Apocalips are described as 'lip lacquers', which means the pigmentation of a lipstick combined with the creaminess and shine of a gloss, but with a unique finish. The formula is extremely pigmented and creamy and applies well to the lips, but with hardly any stickiness meaning less hair stuck to lips situations. The wear is at least 4 - 6 hours but will dry matte by this time, easily fixed by a quick top up.
Overall, I like the formula, pigmentation and design, Nude Eclipse is a very, very pale salmon pink that does have a slight hint of 'concealer' about it but which can look beautiful with a tan (which I will have at some point) and a smokey eye, or worn over a deeper colour and sheered out. Nude shades are often my colour of choice as my make up normally focuses on my eyes, this colour complements darker eye make up perfectly. The photo doesn't really do it justice (or even really show up...I did try.) but honestly, it is a lovely colour. This colour may be too pale for some people, but with a range of other colours I would recommend you have a look!
