RMS Beauty specializes in toxin-free, organic beauty products that are advertised to heal and nourish skin. Their line includes six eyeshadows, all creams. I’ve been tempted to try the line based on favorable reviews, including The London Makeup Girl, who has a site that I adore. I decided to buy Seduce ($28), a warm shimmery brown, from the online site The Spirit Beauty Lounge.
The texture of these is very unique–I don’t know of any thing like them. The closest product is probably Shiseido’s Hydro-Powder cream eyeshadows, but even those are heavy and opaque by comparison. RMS’ Seduce is a very lightweight cream that leaves a very noticeable sheen on the lid. The sheen effect is similar to Chanel’s Ombre D’Eau water-based eyeshadows, but the RMS looks more gel-like and not at all powdery. I did not use any primer, because I thought it might interfere with any moisturizing properties that the shadows might have. In case you are wondering, Seduce did leave my lids noticeably more moisturized.
I’ve worn Seduce about four or five days over the past few weeks, and I found myself reaching for it more and more. The application is literally dab-and-go: One finger swipe on each eye and I’m done. The lid looks moisturized, glowy and with a touch of color. It’s very flattering and doesn’t look like I tried too hard.
I tried to bring out the sheen when taking these–don’t they make the skin look nice and alive? Here’s a swatch next to Shiseido’s Tiger Eye Hydro-Powder. Although the colors are not the same, I wanted to show the different textural qualities of each (click to enlarge):
I really like the convenience of these eyeshadows, and of course I love that my lids looks nice and moisturized. I’ll definitely be ordering more of these would like to try a few other colors–there’s a sandy gold (Solar), a cool white (Lunar) and a silvery grey (Magnetic) that I’d like to try in the future.
