Practice great skincare & great makeup with RMS Beauty.
After last week’s shocking shower exposé, I came to realize I have another hoarder secret I’ve been keeping. My RMS Beauty collection!
I love my RMS Beauty products and once again I’m ashamed I haven’t shared a full review with you. Soon after I bought the first three, I ordered another, and then another. I’m addicted. The packaging and concept of RMS Beauty is as lovely and simple as the makeup itself.
Created by makeup artist Rose Marie Swift, this line is truly a “skincare” makeup. Each product has a base of coconut and jojoba oils, cocoa and shea butters, and beeswax. These are truly beautiful organic products that melt into your skin and nourish it.
From left to right (in both photos), here’s what you’re looking at:
Lip2Cheek in Rapture $36: This is a deep brick red that can be used both as a cheek color and a lip color. On the cheeks it can be sheered out into a dramatic vintage rouge look, and on the lips it can be built up to an impossibly glamorous red. I absolutely. love. this. product. I want them ALL!
Cream Eye Shadows in Seduce & Magnetic. $28 These cream shadows are great as a base for building layers of color with another shadow or used alone for an effortless smokey eye. You control how heavy or sheer you want the color to be, but be warned, they do crease. This isn’t a bad thing. Remember, it’s made with skin friendly ingredients so you’re taking care of your skin when you use them. However, it is something to keep an eye on throughout the day. Just pat the product in and you’re good to go!
You can also set these with a regular shadow or setting powder. I find Josie Maran’s Argan Eyes shadows work particularly well on top of the creams and together they barely budge during the day. This is a great, versatile product, and they’re a lot of fun to experiment with.
Living Luminizer $38 This is a cool to neutral toned highlighter, and as far as I’m concerned it’s an essential. You can use this to highlight the brow bone, the inner corner of your eyes, your cheek bones, cupids bow, shoulders, anything and everything. What’s so brilliant about this product is that you are moisturizing your skin with organic coconut oil wherever you use it, so use it everywhere!! I would love to see a warmer toned highlighter come out, but I’m sure this can be mixed with the gold cream shadow for the same effect.
“Un” cover-up in 22. $36 This is a yellow toned light to medium concealer. I sheer this out with a Beauty Blender and wear it as a foundation. It’s the perfect amount of coverage for my pale but freckly skin. I also use it as a blemish concealer and when I set with a powder, it stays put. It’s very build-able and covers naturally.
I will say, as an under eye concealer, this doesn’t work for me. It’s very yellow, and I need more of a salmon color to cover my purplish dark circles. However, I suspect if I mixed it with a dab of the right Lip2Cheek, it would work like a dream.
This is the beauty of the RMS concept. Think of them as little pots of skin nourishing paints to mix and match as you choose. I can’t get enough of them and I suspect my RMS-hoarding will only continue.
