RMS Beauty is a cult-favourite brand, adored by make-up artists, super models and everyday girls alike. It is not without good reason - RMS is pure, organic, high performance make-up at its finest.

Created by celebrity make-up artist Rose-Marie Swift, the brands' less-is-more aesthetic goes further than the sleek, minimal packaging.

RMS is about uncovering your skin, your beauty - not covering it up with heavy, cakey make-up.
All of the formulas are light weight, consist of only a handful of ingredients and leave you dewy and fresh-faced.  

"RMS Beauty products are formulated with raw, food grade and organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their living, healing attributes to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin. In their purest form, enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and their healing properties remain fully intact, encouraging amazing potential for anti-aging effects. RMS Beauty has also taken extreme care in the use of minimal heat in the manufacturing process of this product in order to keep all nutrients and healing properties alive. All RMS Beauty products are free of harmful chemicals, synthetic preservatives, synthetic vitamins, and genetically altered ingredients (GMO) etc. RMS Beauty is full of healing nutrients – nutrients that work synergistically with the skin, and are in harmony with nature and our environment. Each ingredient in RMS Beauty is carefully chosen to create a dialogue with the skin. Your touch activates the life force of the product, and nutrients interact with skin to promote hydration, softness, and luminosity."

The packaging is all either recyclable, biodegradable or reusable. 
The frosted glass pots are also so compact that they are the perfect size to keep in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups and travel. 

RMS Beauty Uncover-up (#11)

One of the two most raved about pieces in the line - the RMS Beauty Uncover-up is not just a melt-into-your-skin concealer, but it also doubles as a light - medium coverage foundation.

The colour is somewhat self-adjusting - it appears to have a very yellow base, however, this matches my skin tone perfectly (fair to medium with neutral undertones).

This little gem contains only:

*Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol(non-GMO), *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain:
[+/- Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499]

After prepping my skin, I apply this with the Kjaer Weis Foundation Brush.
I used only my finger-tips for years, and there is no reason you can't - you can still achieve a flawless finish - but after using the Kjaer Weis brush I wouldn't go back. It provides better coverage when applied with a brush, and when using all-over, the finish is seamless.
(NB: for touch-ups I still use my fingers! It blends SO well)

The finish is gorgeously dewy; as a concealer it blends seamlessly with other products, or use as a foundation to minimise pores, balance redness, dark circles and blemishes. 

The Un-coverup doesn't crease* and will never look heavy or cakey no matter how much I pack on - again making touch-ups a breeze - I simply have to pat it out and voilà!

It lasts all day (even in the humid Queensland summer heat) and you will still look as fresh-faced at 5pm as you did at 9am. When I want to look fresh-faced in five minutes, the RMS Un-coverup (and the following essentials) are what I reach for.

(NB: I have hooded lids and it will settle into creases on my lids if not properly set, however, it doesn't crease on smile lines, fine lines etc)

RMS Beauty Tinted Un-powder (0-1)

After applying the Uncover-up, the RMS Beauty Tinted Un-powder (shade 0-1) is the next step in my routine.

Feather-light and providing just enough coverage to set the cream products, without feeling dry or taking away from the dewy finish, the Tinted Un-powder contains only Silica, and Iron Oxides: CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499.

My skin type is normal, so I need very little and only for the purpose of setting my make-up, however, if you have an oily skin type, don't be afraid to layer on as much as you want - again, this will never become heavy or cakey and it doesn't crease.

I use my W3LL People Kabuki Brush to apply in swirling motions, or I've also used the brush from the ILIA Fade Into You Translucent Powder (after it was empty).

I also use an eyeshadow brush (or even the KW Foundation Brush) to apply all over my lid, and under the eyes.

If the weather is very humid, I can freshen up with a little more powder throughout the day.
Now, I know you would usually apply a finishing/setting powder as the last step in beauty routine, however, I find the RMS products last longer applied in this order.

RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek (Demure)

Demure is a cool-toned pink, that when applied to the cheeks gives a gorgeous flush of colour - not pale enough to be baby-pink, but not warm enough to be a rose-pink (like the flush you get after exercise)

I have also found this colour to reflect differently once on the skin - this is probably one of the most natural cheek colours I've used, and it suits most skin tones - from very fair to warmer, more tanned complexions.

I always apply this after the Tinted Un-powder, as the colour lasts all day, and it keep the dewy-ness at full-scale.

I simply use my Alima Pure Blush Brush to apply - a few taps in the pot, and then I dot it across my cheeks and blend (I really ought to purchase a cream blush brush - I've been eyeing the one by RMS Beauty & Kjaer Weis). You can also use your fingertips, however, I prefer a brush as its less messy, and you get a more flawless finish.

On the lips, the colour is too light for my personal taste as-is, so I'll apply a tinted lip balm or gloss over the top. My lips are naturally very pigmented, so I usually opt for rosy, mauve/pink or red lip colours.

The Lip2Cheek contains:

*Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax),*Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Buriti (Mauritia Flexuosa) Oil, Tocopherol(non-GMO), Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) seed Oil, Propolis Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract ,*Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain: [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, Mica CI 77019]

In addition to above ingredient deck, the smile, beloved and curious lip2cheek shades contain the following pigments: [+/- Red 30 CI 73360, Red 6 Lake CI 15850]

RMS Beauty Living Luminzer

This is the second of the top two most raved-about pieces from the RMS Beauty collection.
This magical pot of glow will truly make you look awake - using your fingertips, sweep this across the cheekbones, cupids bow, bridge of the nose, brow bone and inner corner of the eyes, and it will make you look fresh-faced and you will be glowing all day long.

RMS Beauty also suggests a "hint of the luminizer can be added along shoulders, shoulder blades and collar bones for a sexy evening look. Combine with the lip2cheek for a more sensual, shimmery mouth. or mix sparingly with 'un'cover-up for a radiant sheen."

The Living Luminizer contains:

*Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Tocopherol (non-GMO), *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI77891, Mica CI 77019]

RMS Beauty Eye Polish (Lunar)

The Eye Polishes are created to be used sparingly, for a subtle, glossy finish.

Lunar is a neutral, champagne tone.

RMS Beauty says "A veil of sheer metallic hues that gives these unique shadows a glowing, light-reflective finish not seen in traditional eye shadows .... giving them a fashion forward finish that is both flattering and youthful.

These sensual shadows need to be applied very sparingly and worked into the skin like you would a moisturizer. rms beauty eye polishes have all the benefits of raw mineral pigments without the dryness that occurs with minerals alone. rms beauty eye polishes double as an eye cream to nourish and moisturize the eye area, separating them from commercial eye shadows that can accelerate aging and emphasize lines. These shadows work are amazing for dry or aging eyes."

I always ensure to have set my lids with the Tinted Un-powder prior to applying the eye polish - with only my fingertips for a gorgeous gloss of neutral colour.
I've also used this as a highlighter! (it gives a more frosted look)

The Eye Polish contains:

*Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil,*Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopherol(non-GMO), *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain: [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, Mica CI 77019

If you've tried the eye polish before and found it to crease, try again, but with a lighter touch, and don't forget to set it, especially if you have hooded lids.

Wonderlust Vanity Case by Review

RMS Beauty Lip Shine (Sacred)

Like a gloss-meets-lipbalm-lipstick hybrid, the Lip Shine is rich and moisturising, delivering a highly pigmented pop of colour and gorgeous gloss.

Sacred is a pretty poppy pink - not quite red but certainly not hot pink.
It is fresh, bold and youthful without being too 'out-there' for those afraid of bright colours.
You can apply sheerly for a touch of colour or layer on for more intense colour.

The colour will stain your lips for hours, so touch-ups aren't really required and even with daily use the pot will last you months.

The Lip Shine contains:

*Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Buriti (Mauritia Flexuosa) Oil, *Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Centella Asiatica Extract , *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Tocopherol(non-GMO) (CI 77491), (CI 77492), (CI 77499), (CI 77891), (CI 77019)

In addition to above ingredient deck, the royal and sacred lip shine shades contain the following pigments: [+/- Red 30 CI 73360, Red 6 Lake CI 15850]
