My currently small, yet cherished RMS Beauty collection makes for a very nice autumn look. These four jars I have cover the staples of a makeup kit – the “un” cover-up for concealer and foundation, “Beloved” for a classic red that is cross-seasonal, “Living Luminizer” to brighten and highlight the skin, and “Seduce”, a brown cream that can be used as eyeshadow, contour and brow filler.
Here, I’ve used “Seduce” for all three of those things. Previously I had said that I didn’t prefer to use this cream as an eyeshadow, however lately I have been giving it another chance. It’s really growing on me, and I think this is because I’ve changed my makeup style and have started preferring less made-up, easy to apply looks. I used to prefer perfectly applied, smoked-out creases, but lately I’d rather just keep it simple.
RMS Beauty “Seduce” when used as an eye shadow does crease and fade after a little bit and a few hours in won’t be as strong as when first applied. But the darkness and the lustre of the cream does last for a few hours, although more subdued. When it does crease, it can just be lightly padded with the fingertips.
What I really appreciate about RMS Beauty is their honesty about their products. On the site they admit that the eye polishes may cause creasing for those with oily eye lids, and this is due to the natural and organic ingredients the brand prefers rather than using synthetic ingredients which would eliminate creasing but then would be detrimental to the skin.
I have been more drawn to the brand all over again as I was over a year ago when I first discovered them. Not only because their products are formulated with the enzymes intact so that the makeup also contributes to ameliorating the skin, but also because of their packaging. In a world where plastic accompanies everything, and the environment is slowly becoming a wasteland, it is nice to support a brand with a very minimalist packaging style, using biodegradable, recyclable or reusable products.
With the cold weather approaching for those of us in the Northern part of the world, RMS Beauty products are a great makeup choice since they not only look great but also give your skin that extra boost of hydration.
