And you'll be surprised to hear this: Sephora has been ousted as my favorite store--I know, it's shocking--and it has been replaced by Whole Foods. Although I'm partial to their salad bar and plethora of nut butters and chocolate (the nine dollar, ninety percent cacao bars....) their beauty section is also to. die. for. Their selection of oils, natural body scrubs, and overpriced goji berries have my heart smitten; and so does RMS Beauty.
Where I live, it's difficult to locate, but, despite the fact that everything I've purchased has been only virtually seen, I haven't been disappointed. The range was created by makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift (hence the acronym 'RMS'), and the fact that she's constantly glowing and gorgeous means the range must be, too.
Their motto? 'Created by nature, untainted by man.' And all there products maintain the philosophy. To say their concoctions of oils, plant pigments, powders, and formulas are natural would be an insult--because they're raw and made with organic and food-grade ingredients.
I wouldn't suggest eating the stuff, but, if you're interested, the integrals are also gluten free, GMO free, nano free, soy free, and animal testing-free.
With the nitty gritty in tip-top condition, aesthetic, hold, and grip is just as pleasing. Creamy, blendable, and simply gorgeous (just like their founder) is their nature. With a website hosting elegant Lip2Cheek tints, a highlighter by the name of the Living Luminizer, a beauty oil, coconut cream, 'Un' Powder, Lip Shines, eye shadows, 'Un' Cover-Up, and my current lust--the Buriti Bronzer--either hide your wallet or block the URL.
Because I'm a design and organizational fanatic, it's not a review without mention of the carrying case: the packaging. The frosted glass pot lidded with a white and pink, purple and blue encrusted lid can't be described as anything but chic. But then there's more; underneath the charming facet is a biodegradable make up with recyclable and reusable glass and air tight aluminum lid.
So, if you haven't guess, we may have a new brand love amongst the ranks. Rose-Marie Swift Beauty blusters impeccable formulas, sustainable
