Rimmel Apocalips, the new shades – ‘Aurora’ and ‘Shooting star’ – Swatched

I’ve enjoyed the Rimmel Apocalips since I first got ‘Celestial’, ‘Big Bang’ and ‘Luna’ a good few months ago. I’ve not worn them Loads because they can be a bit tricky to wear but I’ve picked them up again recently and been loving them all over again.

A short while ago I discovered that over in the US there was a number of extra shades available which I was rather jealous of, especially as one of them really caught my eye. Needless to say I was a little bit excited when I discovered that the new shades were going to be coming over to the UK.

The shade that I’ve had my heart set on for a while is ‘Aurora’ and as they were on buy one get one half price in Boots I also picked up ‘Shooting Star’ as it seemed to be a warmer, more pinky nude than the original nude shade from the range. I got these for £6.99 each, but as I say they were on offer plus I actually paid for them with my boots points so, really, they were freee.

This shade is ‘Shooting Star’ as you can see it’s a nice nude but not too light, which is why I was hoping it’d be quite wearable for someone with pale skin like me.
And this one is ‘Aurora’ – I was expecting it to be a little more of a terracota orange/red shade but this orangey pink shade is still really, really nice. 

 

As you can see, with both of these, the swatches are pretty true to how they come across in the tube. The formula is exactly the same as the original shades, really opaque plus nice and creamy. (This one is, obviously, Shooting star)
I really am a bit in love with Aurora, there’s something really different about this shade, I expect to wear this a lot especially because I think it could fit with the colour ranges for all seasons due to the pink/red/orange nature of it.

Very, very pleased to have got these.
