Since I first started experimenting with makeup, I have to say I was never really enamoured or all that impressed by any particular brand, texture, or use of makeup. Of course I have always loved the look of a liquid cat eye and red lip, but even then the idea of putting makeup on never really excited me. That all changed when I discovered RMS beauty. I first heard about RMS when reading an online article about how J.Crew models got their secret "glow" with the use of the RMS luminzer.
RMS beauty is an all-natural beauty line created by makeup artist Rose-Marie Smith (a former Vancouverite!). The core ingredient to all of the products is coconut oil which is incredibly nourishing for the skin and, of course, safe to ingest. What lots of women don't realize about their beauty products is that whatever you put on your skin will be absorbed by the body, making its way into the blood stream and potentially causing future harm. However, with RMS all ingredients are raw, safe to ingest, and completely natural. The safety of these products, the amazing recyclable glass pot packaging, and the promotion of actually using your fingers rather than brushes (who actually has time for those?) to put this magic stuff on is what drove me to make my first purchase.
Since then I have, as the title of this post says, experienced my first full-on love affair with makeup. I absolutely cannot get enough of this stuff and have switched all of my products to this line. The staying power is amazing, the colours are pigmented yet natural, my skin feels great when it's on, and the coverage ranges from sheer to full depending on how you apply it. Included currently in the line are eyeshadows, 'un-cover up' (concealer), bronzer, luminizer, lip shines that are incredibly moisturizing, as well as the 'lip2cheek' which doubles as a lip and cheek colour.
Since I started using RMS, I look forward to getting ready each morning. The products are fun and easy to apply, I always feel "enhanced" rather than "made up" when I'm done, and the coverage can be sheer to full depending on how I'm feeling that day. All in all, I'm in love.
