Coming Soon to the US (I Hope): Rimmel Show Off Matte Lip Velvets

Recently, Rimmel UK released matte versions of their Apocalips lip colors (they're called Show Offs here in the US). Here are some pics from the Rimmel UK Instagram page:

Since these have been out for, I believe, about a month now in the UK, I'm HOPING that we'll see them here in the US before end of year. That's just my guess, based the time it usually takes for us to get things from Rimmel after their UK release. Here's hoping, right?

In the meantime, you can check out this review by a UK beauty blogger of three of the five shades in this range (they look very pigmented!). And you can also check out the entire UK shade range on the Rimmel UK site here.


  1. Fingers crossed this comes stateside. Rimmel has been really stepping up their game lately. I have always loved their mascaras bc those were all I could afford in high school but now, I'm all about their liners, powders, and lip colors.

  2. I love Rimmel Line. I have a few of their Show Off Lacquer shades and I'm really hopping they make a matte version of Galaxy....

    Wait a minute, the virus one kind of looks like Galaxy. Squeeee!!

  3. they look really nice - i want to see them on somebodys lips ;)

    1. There's a link to swatches on the lips in this post!

  4. I am 110% here for the huge influx of matte lip products on the market now, so I definitely hope that these make it over! (If not, my sister lives in the UK, so I can get my greedy little hands on them anyway, yay!)

  5. Ooo! Cannot wait for these to be available, the formula on these is divine :)

  6. Ooh! I love my Sephora Cream Lip Stain, but there are only a few shades available in the matte finish. It would be great to find another matte lip product at the drugstore. I just hope the scent is different than the Show Off Lacquers. I'm not usually sensitive or too critical of scented lip products, but this was just too much for me. Of course, I'll still be picking these up.. :-p

  7. I need these in my life. I mean the last thing I need is another lip product but matte lip products are my weakness

  8. Oh boy, I really hope we get these here! I love any matte lip products!
