About Rimmel London

When Rimmel London was founded, the brand was envisioned to become a true blue reflection of a Londoner hip, hot and daring, always fashion forward and trendy but never losing sight of her individuality. For Rimmel London, cosmetics is more than just a way of adding color to an otherwise dull, lifeless face. Instead, Rimmel London perceives makeup as a mode of self-expression, a chance to exude outwardly what their consumers are within.

Despite of Rimmel London’s strong research foundations and fashionable backing, it brands itself as an affordable alternative to luxury cosmetics. Every color, every shade, every product in its menu is always served flaming hot and irrestibly delicious!

How is Rimmel London Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet Used?

Simply take the shade of your choice and apply directly from the bullet.

For a sleekier, more flawless result, exfoliate your lips using unrefined brown sugar. Roll over both your upper and lower lip for a good 3 to 5 minutes before rinsing off. Follow through with a lip balm to bring back moisture to your lips. Let your lips fully absorb the lip balm before putting on the Rimmel London Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet shade of your choice.

To keep your lipstick in and prevent smudging around your lips, use a nude lip pencil or concealer to line your lips. The tendency then is for color to be kept in. This particular lip hack also tends to lift your lips so that they end up looking much fuller.

The Price Range of Rimmel London Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet

This product retails anywhere between $6 to $15 for every 5.5 ml tube.
