Ever since I had my makeover with RMK at Selfridges I’ve been dying to get my hands on the products myself and see if I can get the same great effects at home without the help of a make-up artist. I had to be patient as the only place the range was on sale was Selfridges and the stock was low so I had to wait until a new shipment arrived from Japan. Let me tell you I’m not a patient person. But finally, a very special box arrived for me from RMK!
Each silver box contained another delight and each product was like a precious jewel that I wanted to own for its looks alone – the fact that the shiny cases contained cosmetics that delivered on their promises was a bonus!
The range is designed to be reminiscent of Vintage Sweets – candy colours and afternoon tea. There’s also an element of Alice in Wonderland in there too. I unboxed each one and set them out as if they were macarons. A feast for the eyes!
And then came the chance to try out each one. I used an RMK primer first and then added the RMK Creamy Foundation. I found that this has quite a full coverage compared to the foundations that I’ve been using recently but this creamy foundation feels good on my skin. It contains Argan Oil and Shea Butter and lasted well throughout the day. Always an achievement for me as I do tend to touch my face a lot while I work.
I used the Sweet Sugar Eyes palette in Pinky Beige on my lids. (The illustration below is Cool Blue) The colours can be swirled together or used separately. I mixed them for a sugary sweet shimmer that was subtle enough for the office.
To touch up a couple of flaws – well no one is perfect – I used the ultra-handy Super Basic Concealer Pact. This is such a useful and neat piece to keep in your bag for office touch-ups. It has two shades of concealer to mix and blend as well as powder and brush – plus a mirror. You can even buy refills – perfect!
Then I used what I think is the prettiest piece I have which is the Limited Edition Vintage Sweets Face Colour. Each compact has four shades which smell of black tea! It comes in two shades I chose Yellow and Green which help to even skin tone.
The final piece of candy sweetness was the smoky pink nail polish I chose. It gave great coverage and was just the kind of spring colour I love! I’m really looking forward to using these colours through spring and into summer for a delicate ladylike look that is refreshing after the deeper tones of autumn and winter.
I’ve really enjoyed discovering this brand and there are so many more pieces I want to get. I mean – there’s a whole set of brushes and there are eyelash curlers that actually work on my stubby lashes. I could go on. You can be sure that this isn’t the last you’ll hear from me on this super Japanese brand.
Do let me know what you think if you try any RMK products!
