Recent Loves


RMS Living Luminizer : This is my first experience with using a highlighter of any sort and I just love the effect. I usually dab just the tiniest touch on my brow and cheekbones and it imparts a luminous and natural looking glow. It could last longer but I feel good about using a certified organic product and I do really like how lightweight yet moisturizing it feels.

RMS Lip2Cheek in Illusive : Blush is a must for me year round especially during the winter months when my complexion is typically paler. I tend to prefer cream formulations and this one is quite hydrating and long-wearing. The highly pigmented rosy plum color is fresh and vibrant as a blush and more subdued and sophisticated as a lip color. I'm sold on this and want to get it in Demure which looks like a gorgeous mauvey pink for the summer.

Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentré : Since using it as my day cream for the past month and a half, I totally understand why this French pharmacy staple is considered such a cult favorite product in the fashion industry. It literally melts in and envelops my skin in supple moisture that lasts through the harshest and coldest days. I can't speak to how it would work on oily skin types but my sensitive and dry winter skin loves it.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your recent loves?

Hi Rowena! Hope you had a lovely weekend!:) I never tried or knew any of these profucts but I straight tell you that Id love to get them since they all sound really good. In particular the highlighter and the cream blush (which for me both are a must have for the everyday base). I also read that the moisturizer could be used in many ways, I love this kind of prducts. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead my dear, many kisses! xo

The luminizer and the cheek dewy blush look like an amazing product I will not mind using.

I've been loving my highlighter as well. There's definitely the fine line between subtle and overkill, but when it's applied correctly, it gives off such a nice glow.

I love Embryollise as a makeup remover. What a great cream, eh?

miss b said...

I haven't tried any of these products but I've heard good things about the Embryollise brand. I would like to try the highlighter too.

Illuminator seems to be the hot thing right now! I'm seeing it everywhere and want it! I've been wearing powder blush for years but I started out with these whipped cream blushes when I was a teen in Japan. I should try something like this again!! Beautiful layout!

Since your intro of RMS, I've looked up a few reviews myself, and this product is definitely on my radar! I just gotta check where I can buy it from :D

It's so funny you mention that last cream because I've come across people mentioning it so much this week! It must be great. I'm off to France in July, I'll have to invest in some then.

These sound interesting I think my bathroom could be it's own Sephora! I am so bad with so many products! My samples are insane too, let's not even go there! Now I have to check out these new brands. Thank you!! Have a GREAT Wednesday! Was a gorgeous day in PA today, so nice for a change!!

MaysaAndSunshine said...

I haven't tried new makeup products in a long time but the luminizer looks great. Love the shades you pick Rowena. I will have to investigate.

Heel in Mint said...

I love RMS. I use their lip 2 cheek in promise and I have my eye on demure too. They are subtle and natural. I don't like the look of thick makeup so this brand is perfect. Agree about the low staying power but it doesn't bother me. I love the ingredient list and I love supporting non-toxic products. So glad you love it too :)
