Welcome to my fifth blog post. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I am talking lip color. RMS Beauty Lip Shines, to be specific. I love these babies. They are little juicy jewels of happiness. I own three of the four shades offered:
Bloom (pictured at the top of the lip color pyramid on the left) is described as a sheer, youthful petal pink with the most subtle hint of shimmer. When I think of petal pink, I think of something more along the lines of a baby pink. I consider Bloom to be a nude, albeit a pinky nude. I didn’t notice any shimmer at all—and I am okay with that. Bloom is the sheerest of the three shades that I own. It and looks great alone or used on top of another lip color to tone down the color.
Sublime is pictured on the bottom left. It’s described as a bright and modern fuchsia pink. This color is a pick-me-up for your whole face. I think it’s also the glossiest of the three. It also leaves a pretty pink stain on the lips.
And last, Sacred. RMS describes this one as the most perfect, innocent red with a gentle hint of pink. I think it’s the color of the reddest, sweetest slice of watermelon ever eaten. It’s the most pigmented of the three and can be layered to intensify the color. Like Sublime, it leaves a pretty stain behind. I usually go for pinks and nudes, but I had to have this one and I am glad I purchased it.
RMS is a darling of the green beauty movement. One of the main ingredients of the line—the ingredient of the moment—is coconut oil. They use organic, raw coconut oil and extract it in a way that preserves the good stuff: natural Vitamin E, antioxidants and enzymes. It doesn’t hurt that beautiful people like Miranda Kerr are big fans of Rose Marie Swift’s (RMS) makeup. I can only speak to the lip products and say, RMS deserves the hype. The lip shines are natural, beautifully packaged, really moisturizing, and very comfortable on the lips.
Here is what is in it as listed on the RMS site:
*Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Moringa Oleifera (Moringa) Oil, *Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Centella Asiatica Extract, *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Non-GMO, (CI 77491), (CI 77492), (CI 77499), (CI 77891), (CI 77019)
* CERTIFIED ORGANIC
The product comes in glass pots. I know many people don’t like to use cosmetics that come in pots because they seem unhygienic. Coconut oil is said to be naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. I sometimes use a brush, but mostly take care to use clean hands.
So in closing, I highly recommend! Fair warning though, if you get one, you’ll want another.
