I have been a long-time lover of green beauty products but I’m discovering my love for organic makeup products only now. Though I’m a complete skincare devotee, recently I treated myself with a bit of a makeup haul! These products were high on my wishlist for quite some time; so it was a long time coming. And it goes without saying, I absolutely loved this haul. After using these products for about two weeks, I’m so motivated to actually invest more into organic makeup products. It was actually a revelation (about myself) that I enjoy natural makeup products as much as I enjoy and love green skincare products.
Okay, so after using these makeup products for about two weeks, now I’m ready to divulge the details on how they look (yeah..swatches!) and how they perform. I snagged some pretty awesome products by RMS Beauty and Kosas Cosmetics.
RMS Wild With Desire Lipstick – (Sweet Nothing)
RMS Beauty’s highly coveted Wild With Desire lipstick is blended with the brand’s signature oil and nourishing antioxidants to leave a soft and lustrous satin finish. ‘Sweet Nothing’ is a pretty, cool-toned mauve. It has a creamy texture that glides on easily without tugging. Rich and powerful in anti-oxidants, this lipstick offers ultimate hydration and maximum color pay-off without feathering or bleeding.
I was initially skeptical a bit to purchase this lipstick shade but I wanted to purchase a different lip color this time because more often than not I end up purchasing the same shades of pinks and browns. I’m so pleasantly surprised by how beautiful this shade looks on my skin tone. I love this lipstick shade now; and it just brightens up my day. What I particularly like about this lipstick is how long lasting it is; and how I don’t need any touch up throughout the day I wear it. It comes across as a semi-matte lipstick and stays on the entire day without bleeding at all! By the end of the day (I’m talking about after having had lunch, dinner, etc.) it fades off pretty evenly and doesn’t look bad at all! I also love its beautiful packaging of sleek silver body that can easily be carried anywhere.
RMS Enchanted Moonlight EM – 68 Eyeshadow
EM-68 is a pure violet/amethyst shade; and a highly pigmented, finely milled powder eyeshadow.
RMS Beauty Swift Shadows are designed for quick and easy application. The botanically enriched formula boasts an innovative pressed pigment texture with incomparable pigmentation and blendability offering the best durability and finish possible. Its main ingredients include wild-crafted Buriti Oil and organic Jojoba Oil that condition and hydrate the lids.
RMS beauty products have always gained such huge acclamation; so my expectations were definitely set pretty high with this eyeshadow. I’m so glad to attest that it really did surpass my expectations. I love this particular shade of violet because it looked different than the normal neutral shades of eyeshadows I’m usually drawn toward; yet didn’t look very kitschy to make me feel conscious or awkward. With a powder formula, this swift eyeshadow is pretty easy to apply and the color intensity is buildable. It looks absolutely wonderful with my favorite Hynt Beauty lipstick Passion Plum. If you haven’t tried any RMS eyeshadows, I highly recommend them!
Kosas Creme Blush and Highlighter ‘8th Muse’
Kosas makeup products define luxury, sophistication, and elegance. Kosas products have gained immense accolade due of lot of factors. Right from their packaging, to the quality of their products, to their listed ingredients… everything is worth extolling!
Kosas Crème Blush and Highlighter palette are a delight for any makeup lover! They come in 3 shades; I chose the floral flush (a true pink rouge and cosmic highlighter) – 8th Muse. The very first thing worth noticing is their super chic packaging; it’s just stunning! The crème and highlighter formula is so creamy that it’s absolutely easy to apply and blend. Enhanced with nourishing face oils including marula, rosehip seed, blueberry seed, apricot kernel, and green tea, it’s beyond colour. The true pink rouge gives just the kind of natural flush I like. And the highlighter gives a beautiful golden-ish glow. I just love how these two complement each other.
Kosas Lip color Rosewater
By now, you might already know my love for Kosas makeup products. Kosas lipstick collection includes 8 shades of reds, plums, brights, nudes, and roses. Colors are buildable, from sheer stains to full coverage, from full-on dramatic to subtle and natural. These hydrating, everyday-wearable lipsticks are made with organic oils and botanical extracts (antioxidant green tea, rosehip, grapeseed, and collagen-boosting sweet orange), plus deeply hydrating mango and shea butters.
My obvious choice with lipstick was Rosewater – blushing rose hued shade. And I’m so happy I chose this shade. It’s one of those lip colors that can be worn every day; it looks like “my lips but better” lipstick. The lipstick formula is quite creamy and it is definitely long-lasting and hydrating. I can see it becoming one of my top favorite lipsticks; and a must-have product in my carry bag!
