RMS beauty – living colors

A lot of you may know the awesome RMS beauty line, created by the celebrity makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift. The products are made with the best organic ingredients to provide not just a healthy skin, but even an ultra modern look. For those who don’t know this brand yet or if you already are a RMS addicted, I want to share my excitement with you. Before trying RMS beauty makeup I was informed about many benefits, high quality and safe ingredients, so it was just a matter of time when I was going to try the products and what the results were going to be.


RMS products: top from the left: Uncover up n.11, Lip2cheek Muse, bottom from the left: eye shadow Solar, Lip2cheek Illusive


I was especially interested in the concealer/foundation called “Un”cover-up. I’ve chosen the shade n.11, which is the lightest one from the collection. There are also n.22 for medium skin tones and n.33 for dark skin tones. I knew that RMS products are high quality, but honestly, I didn’t expect such a great product. “Un”cover-up can be used as a concealer or as a foundation. The coverage is very good even with the first thin layer of product applied. At the same time it provides a light and dewy texture. The shade n.11 is yellow based and it covers very well any imperfections. In my opinion, the shade of color was wisely chosen by the creators because adapts itself to your skin tone! You have to bear in mind that all RMS products are high pigmented, which means you need a small amount of product. The smell is pleasant, natural, non-defined, which is good, especially for sensitive people prone to allergies. I noticed many times that people don’t like certain smells of cosmetic products, such as foundation. The best thing from my point of view is the staying power of all products, especially “Un”cover-up and cream eye shadow hold very well without creasing. They are extremely easy to apply and blend very well. The overall result is a nourished, healthy looking skin, with a perfect texture and a chic modern makeup.


Lip2cheek is also the kind of product that I adore professionally and for my personal use; a multi-use product for lips and cheeks. I have tried one shade also on the eyes and the result was amazing. All shades are created and chosen very well, from the lightest to darkest and in tonalities that give you the right touch of fresh color on the face. From the Lip2cheek range I’ve chosen Muse, Promise and Illusive. You can see them below on the pictures. I decided to post 2 type of pictures; one in natural day light and the other with flash. I noticed that in day light the colors have a subtle satin shimmer, but not very shimmery at all. Then I have tried them under artificial flash light and the result was quite a lot of light reflecting particles in the product, with a quite shimmery result (excluded  “Un”cover-up). There is nothing wrong with that, but if you will use them for photo shooting, pay attention to the light and effect that you desire to achieve.


From the Cream eye shadow collection I present Solar and Myth shades, both very unique and multi tasking.  Solar can be mixed in a lipstick if you want a touch of gold, or use it as a highlighter. Myth is great also as a bronzer. As I mentioned before, the staying power and pigmentation of all RMS products, especially those for eyes, are truly awesome. Something that you don’t expect from a cream “green” product. You can achieve a perfect makeup with extra nourishing effect in just a few minutes.

Shade description:

“Un”cover-up  n.11: suitable for light skin tones, with a subtle yellow undertone, which is great for covering any redness or under eye circles

Lip2cheek Muse: a beige shade with a subtle pink undertone, the perfect nude look shade with a sheer finish

Lip2cheek Promise: a soft coral shade with warm undertones and a touch of golden shimmer

Lip2cheek Illusive:  a mix of red brown and plum with a rose undertone, quite matte in day light

Cream eye shadow Solar: a shimmering gold, you can try it also as a highlighter or as lipstick

Cream eye shadow Myth: a red brown with golden shimmer, try it as a bronzer or lipstick

The nice thing is that you can use all RMS products as far as your imagination goes. You can be very creative even with a small amount of products if you want!

GREEN TIP: First, I was a little bit upset because of small package, but then I discovered that they are perfect, because you need the smallest amount of product. The glass jars with stylish tin lids are design masterpieces, that you don’t want to throw away when you finish the product 🙂 You can clean and reuse them. Handy for your makeup bag or for a travel kit!

      Hi Helen!
      Thanks for the comment! If I will do it on myself, I’ll send you the pictures on the mail, otherwise I have a plan to do all my fashion/beauty photo shootings in near future with RMS and other green makeup products. So, I invite you to check my blog often, cause a lot of new stuff is waiting to be published:) If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
      Best to you!

    Do you think that RMS Lip2cheek Illusive might be a dupe for Chanel Ebloui from the Chanel Illusion d’Ombre 2011 collection?
    I saw them both only in pictures and was wondering if you would be able to compare the two eyeshadows owning the RMS shade.

      Hi Mari! I think that RMS Lip2cheek Illusive couldn’t be a dupe for Chanel Ebloui beacuse is not sparkling, but is matte. Moreover, RMS Illusive shade is a matte warm brown with brick undertones, while Ebloui is a chocolate burgundy brown with a lot of shimmer. Since Illusion d’ombre collection is an eyeshadow collection, the duplicate from RMS could be the cream eyeshadow collection. But I think that none of the shades is the same to Ebloui. Maybe with mixing some eyeshadows from RMS you could get a similar shade. Instead, a shimmer chocolate burgundy brown powder mineral pigment applied with a wet brush could give the right shade. The best thing with powders is that you can make your unique custom-made shades.
      Best, Dasha
