Rimmel Apocalips Matte Lip Velvet in Meteoric Matte and Atomic Rose

It seems that Fall 2014 is all about the Matte lip.  Building on the success of the Rimmel Apocalips, Rimmel has released a new Apocalips range in a Matte formula, called Matte Lip Velvets.

Apocalips matte lip velvet is available in Europe, and hopefully will be launched soon in Canada and the US.  There are 4 shades;  Atomic Rose (nude peachy-pink), Meteoric Matte (a deep berry), Orange-Ology (a bright orange), and Burning Lava (a bright raspberry red).  I was able to get Atomic Rose and Meteoric Matte online from feelunique.com at http://www.feelunique.com/p/Rimmel-Apocalips-Matte-Lipstick-5-5ml

Both the wand and packaging are the same as the original Apocalips, except the Matte line has a matte lid.  This matte formula doesn’t quite dry out on your lips and as a result doesn’t make your lips feel dry.  It’s more of a velvet finish which is very moisturizing on your lips and the colour payoff is amazing!  However, as you can see in the pic of Meteoric Matte, I noticed there was some feathering with this colour, but I think it was because I had applied a bit too much product.  The next time I wore it, I blotted the excess off and then didn’t seem to have this problem 🙂

Rimmel has done well again!  What do you think?  Has anyone else tried them out?
