One thing I have learnt from venturing into the beauty world is that there are so many cosmetics and skincare brands out there. I don’t know about you, but it can leave a girl hella confused.
As mentioned before on WardrobeMag, I was introduced to another brand that I hadn’t heard of before: RMK.
RMK is a Japanese cosmetics and skincare brand which is available at Selfridges, Birmingham as well as online and worldwide. I had heard rave reviews about one of their products- the RMK Cleansing Balm- and when I was asked to come in for a little trial of the new range, I was like why not?
After a hard day at work, I popped into Selfridges and found the RMK counter next to Urban Decay. It’s crazy to think I have never really noticed it before. The lovely Shanara sat me down and explained she would be creating a fresh look for me. I normally go for something dramatic, like a smokey eye or dark lips but was intrigued to see what a fresh natural look would do…
My look would be created by using the new Power of Love A/W 2014 collection as well as some classics. First of all, the famous Cleansing Balm that I had heard a lot about came out to take my makeup off. It’s frickin’ amazing. It’s like my new favourite product. I was kindly given a sample which is still going strong. I am definitely going to invest and have been raving about it to my friends and family. It’s a rose scented balm that removes even waterproof eye makeup and a little goes a long way- worth an investment.
With my skin prepped, Shanara got cracking using the new range. One thing that I have had a problem with are my eyelashes. I naturally have long and thick eyelashes- which isn’t a bad thing but I can never find the right mascara to make them look wowsers. Shanara is probably the first MUA to get my lashes looking like this. SERIOUSLY. We could have ended the makeover there and then because I was just like wow. All it took was some nifty curling action with the curlers and then letting the RMK Seperate Curl Mascara do its thing.
Shanara then used the new limited edition Matte Shiny Eye pencil from the new range in the brown shade. The pencil has a matte crayon on one side then a glitter powder on the other side to give it some sparkle. I think it’s good for everyday use as you can sweep the powder on if you’re going out. The rest of my look made using the new creamy foundation, Matte shiny cheeks blusher, Shiny sheer gloss and Powder eyebrow kit.
I really liked my look- something different! I have since tried to replicate it and it’s really easy to do. The Power of Love collection is worth checking out especially if you’re a fan of the fresh look for a party alternative. I want to thank the lovely staff at RMK Birmingham for looking after me so well and especially Shanara for showing me how to get my lashes looking lush!
Have you ever tried RMK products before?
