B Moore Aura or Regal Select interior semigloss?


I'm about to paint some interior window trim, in semigloss. I'm not changing the color (Ben Moore 926-seashell), it's just that the existing paint is a little beat up and I did some re-caulking of some gaps. I want to be able to apply just one coat if at all possible. I have some leftover Ben from a previous project, but I wasn't too happy with how that turned out, so I'm trying to decide between Aura and Regal Select. I've read that you have to work fast with Aura because it dries quickly, so would Regal Select be a better option? Thanks.

For trim I'd use BM Advance or Satin Impervo myself.

I think you would be much happier with the Regal Select. I paint professionally, and I struggle with Aura. The only Aura I use Is their Spa and Bath for bathroom walls.

I would vote for the Advance but am curious why you would select Regal over the Advance.
