I just recently started using RMS Beauty. I purchased the "un" cover-up concealer and love it. Of course after trying that, I was eager to check out the rest of the line. Their PR rep sent along the new "Wearable Brights" collection for review, comprised of four vibrant shades: Royal Lipshine, Curious Lip2Cheek, Inspire Eye Polish and Imagine Eye Polish. I tend to stick to neutrals (in my wardrobe and my makeup) but I love the idea of a pop of color. I went for the Royal Lipshine first, a striking violet shade. It definitely worked for me and was a nice break from my berry-hued norm. I found that a little went a long way and my desired tone was achieved after a bit of lip blotting. I will be reaching for this one when I need a bright lip for daytime events or a night out. I love that this formula is a blend of nourishing organic oils + pure mineral pigments, offering bold color + shine while moisturizing your lips. Vitamins A and C also provide antioxidant protection (yes, please!).
Next up, I tried the Imagine Eye Polish, also in the purple family and good for build-able color/coverage. I went light for the first application (since it was daytime) and loved the mauve tone. It also creates a nice smokey eye effect if you use more. The ice-y blue Inspire Eye Polish was a bit intimidating but I knew that with my blue eyes, I could probably pull it off. I would reserve this for night time, special events. Both eye polishes have a metallic sheen for a subtle glow. More importantly, these tinted formulas moisturize and rejuvenate the delicate eye area, with a combination of jojoba oil, beeswax and cocoa butter.
Since I'm blonde and embrace my pale skin tone, I did not even attempt the orange-hued Curious Lip2Cheek. I'll be passing that along to one of my tanned, olive or dark skin toned friends (and I'm sure it will look amazing). I can't wait to try some of the other beautiful colors in the RMS line. It's absolutely becoming a mainstay in my makeup routine. Shop for the new Wearable Brights and other RMS products at Net-A-Porter.com
