RMK Cosmetics Review & Swatches ♥

Photobucket

This is a review on products I got from RMK Cosmetics from the NBBE National Beauty Blogger Event. ♥
Honestly, I wasn't at all familiar with the brand, but I did recognise the name and packaging from Japanese magazines. Now after trying the products, I'm happy to say I love it! Here I am reviewing their Liquid Foundation, a Lip Crayon, Ingenious Powder Eyes eyeshadow and Creamy Polished Makeup Base.


Liquid Foundation in 102. This shade is a wonderful match for my NC25-30 skin! It feels gorgeous on, very luxurious. It starts as liquid but leaves a powdery finish. It comes with SPF14, which is always a plus. It is on the sheer side though, so if you need more coverage, this one isn't for you.

Lip Crayon in 02 Beige. This is a yellow-toned nude lipstick. It easily glides on my lips and is well pigmented. Feels creamy and dries semi-glossy. The colour is not quite my type for this Spring and upcoming Summer season, as I think louder colours are more appropriate, but the product itself is nice.

Ingenious Powder Eyes in ME-04 Metallic Beige. This is indeed a metallic beige! It is well pigmented, but quite glittery. You will experience some fall-out with this product; but since its a gorgeous light colour, its relatively easy to clean up. Just try to apply this eyeshadow before foundation and it will be fine. It also comes with a sponge tip applicator.

Creamy Polished Base in 00. This is a fast-drying primer that dries clear and leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. It is a lot thicker than the MAC Face Primer which is one of my holy grail products, but it dries just as quick, so I feel like I have to be quicker in spreading the product. I love the squeezy tube for its practicality though: easy to use and easy to carry around (unlike the MAC one!).

Overall...
The packaging is gorgeous - very sleek and metallic. If you are the type to get annoyed with fingerprints, you wont be happy with this. It doesn't bother me though. I know its silly but looking at them makes me feel like a Princess! ♥
The products are very good quality. I definitely recommend them.

On the downside though, they are quite pricey. A bit more than my usual MAC. Probably along the lines of NARS and Benefit.

For UK gals: 
If I remember correctly, I was told that this was available in Harrods. I can't find the brand on the Harrods online shop though. I stand corrected; its available at Selfridges!
From a quick search, you can purchase some of these products at Asos.com (RMK products are discounted at the moment!!) or BeautyBay.com .

Let me know if you pick anything up!

Have you tried this brand before? ♥
What do you think? ♥

Thank you so much RMK PR for letting me try your products!

These products were provided to me by PR, however I was not paid to blog or review these products! My honest opinion as always ♥

  4. I am a huge RMK fan, though I moved to the US and can't easily get my hands on them anymore. I used to use that foundation (haha I remember back than I used the lightest color caz all I focused on was whitening lol) and their base. Their stuff is so well made and high quality. I also love the clean and sleek design a lot. I am glad your enjoying yours :) and thanks SO much for following! I have followed you long long time ago and it's such a honour that your following me back :) You have no idea you have made my day^^

  7. I don't think this liquid foundation would go well for oily skin, but the primer should IMHO. However my skin is combination to dry, so I'm not too sure. Try it out for yourself if you can.

  8. I like how this liquid foundation blends on your skin perfectly. I want a product that will look natural on my face.
