RMK have revamped their range of shadows and blushers and I got some products to sample it out!
RMK is expensive – a hear a lot of people complain about the prices. I would say in the UK its around the same price points as Chanel – so yes it is expensive but it never was a cheap brand to begin with. Some of the items are worth it – the base products especially the foundations are second to none. The eyeshadows – it depends entirely on what shade you are picking up. The eye pencils are so-so.
THe new packaging for the blushers I like a lot. The old blush was in a square but this is in a rectangle with a brush (they also had a rectangular blush that has a few shades in it but that doesn’t come with a brush).
This is a matte soft beige – great day to day colour.
The jelly cheeks I got is also very nice and it blends beautifully. Once again I love the brush – the old jelly cheeks I had to stick my finger in to apply. The texture is smoother than before, and its pigmentned.
There are tons of new shades replacing the old RMK eyeshadow ranges. The shiny range is shimmery and this is gorgeous – a rich cool toned brown with tons of sparkles.
This matte brown eye colour is perfect for contouring and basic eye looks – not usually the kind of thing i would choose but this is pretty!
I also have my eye on a hot pink jelly blusher and the Metallic eyeshadow in green. It is an expensive venture however – £16 per shade means two colours is £32 – the price of one Chanel Quad. The now come with the case which I am guessing, why they cost more than their old price. (in the past you could buy the pan and eyeshadow only and put it in your own palette).
Overall this is a beautiful collection, its typically sheer and glowy like a lot of Japanese brands are. It feel great on the skin and feel luxurious. You CAN still take the pans out of the case…but when you have already paid for them…why would you want to?
The downside is the price and that the quality varies. I would invest in pretty colours that I just adore but I wouldn’t buy mattes or uninspiring colours for that price.
All in all – Worth checkng out in person if you can!
