Rimmel Apocalips | Aurora & Stellar

In continuation with yesterday's post on the Rimmel Apocalips, here's a closer look at two of the shades I picked up. 

If you haven't seen that post yet, you can read it in full here, but here's the gist:
  • The Apocalips are what I would classify as a "liquid lipstick," they are neither a stain nor a gloss;
  • Most of the colours are incredibly pigmented and leave a glossy-to-satin finish on the lips;
  • The pointed doe foot applicator is fairly easy to maneuver for accurate application; and
  • It has a slight fragrance that fades with wear.

A rosy coral, though it looks much rosier on my lips. I only needed one coat to cover my lips. The application was smooth, although with the intense pigmentation, I had to take my time to be precise. Aurora wore for three hours before the colour significantly faded and I didn't find it to be drying. I experienced no feathering with the colour, but it did transfer on glassware. I love the rich colour and I find it quite wearable.

A vivid coral. The pigmentation is so bright and intense. It seems even brighter in person. One coat was needed for an even, opaque finish. I did find that the applicator picked up a little too much product. The colour is quite vibrant, so, I prefer working with a little bit at a time to prevent a mess. Stellar wore for almost four hours before I noticed significant fading. It dried down to a duller satin finish and I did notice that my lips felt a little dry. No feathering occurred, but again, it did transfer on glassware.
