THE REVIEW: RMK MAKE-UP - EYES, LIPS AND CHEEKS


 On my Face - Jelly Cheeks in '01' | Irresistable Lips in '28 Rose' 

It has to be the mirrored packaging that delights my eyes.
RMK make-up products are just so beautifully packaged.
It has to be an advantage when your eyeshadow palette doubles up as a mirror for those occasions when you forget to throw your compact into your handbag.

I have been a fan of the RMK - Rose Balm Cleanser
  for over a year now and have always been interested in giving other products from the extensive range by RMK a try.

"RMK is a unique cosmetics line that holds firm roots within the New York make-up artistry scene and is carefully brought to life in dedicated laboratories in Japan."

Today I shall introduce you to my thoughts on some RMK make-up.
Kicking off with my muse of the moment - the lips.

Irresistible Lips - '28 Rose'*: This lipstick is one of the most moisturising lipsticks that I have worn on my lips, nevermind the beautiful soft brown toned red shade that I think would suit every skin tone as it is just so warming on the lips. In terms of longevity, the lipstick was comfortable on the lips for over three hours before a re-application was needed.

Gloss Lips - 'Sheer Orange'*: You know when you stumble across one of those products that just feels luxurious and looks fabulous? This lipgloss is one of them. The peach toned gloss with hints of tiny gold flecks is perfect for the spring/summer season. A slick of gloss before you head to the beach or before heading out into the balmy sunset, this lip colour is summer on a stick. The perfect touch of sheen with a pop of fruity colour.

Ingenious Jelly Cheeks - '02'*: After making the pledge at the start of this year to wear more product on my cheeks, I was suitably impressed with this product. Bouncy in texture, the pop of peach from the 02 shade gives my cheeks a healthy glow, the shade a hybrid between a creamy blush and bronzer. I have been wearing this soley on my cheeks and have recieved lots of complements on my 'glow'. 

And now onto the RMK Kaleido Range which is new for SS14 and is now available online and in store at Selfridges.

Kaleidoscope Cheeks -02*: The high end highlight. I love how when applied to the top of the cheekbone this illuminator adds a subtle shimmer. In the pan, pink and tan shades with gold flecks can be mixed together to add some sunshine sparkle to your face. I also like to pat some products onto my brow bone.

Kaleidoscope Eyes - 02*: This little eyeshadow duo is the perfect pairing with the above cheek product. I wasn't sure at first how well I would get along with the shades as pink and brown can look a little dubious. Upon first application the shadow applied nicely, they are super soft to work with and when mixed on a fluffy blending brush the colours blend into a beautiful golden, shimmery shade. Again, perfect for summertime eyes.

THE FASHION: HOW I STYLE CHELSEA BOOTS


For a while I have sat on the fence when it comes to the Chelsea boot.
Not only do they remind me slightly of plimsoles that I wore at school, but I also find rounded toe shoes can sometimes look a little unflattering.

Negative's aside, whenever I see them on other people I think that they look great.
Of course as soon as I saw Fearne Cotton often sports a pair, It was kind of a done deal.

I bought my tan Chelsea boots from Primark for under a tenner, they also come in a plain black colour variant as well in different styles, some with laces, some with embellishment.
For myself I was happy with the plain, old school Chelsea's.

Ankle boots can be paired with just about anything and still look hot to trot.

THE REVIEW: L'OREAL ELVIVE FULL RESTORE MASQUE




I love the feeling of silky soft hair post wash and I truly believe that you reap the benefits from what you put onto your tresses.
Having put my hair through a crazy amount of trauma over the past month, I really wanted to invest in a deep nourishing masque in a bid to rejuvinate my hair.

I have been using the L'oreal Elvive - Full Restore Masque twice a week for over a month now.
I apply the product to shampooed hair and leave it on for between two and four minutes before rinsing it out.

THE HAIR - BLONDER?


As you know, I recently revealed a change in the old hair department.
Long gone are my dark red locks and they have since been replaced by a blonde barnet.
If you read [THIS POST] you will know how I managed to convert colours in the space of four hours.

I actually started the first wave of my transition back in the middle of December and three weeks on I thought that it was time to do a little bit of tweaking here and there.
