RMS Beauty: If it’s good enough for Miranda Kerr..

…then it’s good enough for me” –  is a phrase I often use in life. The copious amounts of rosehip oil she suggests, my long-time lusting to get my mitts on her KORA line and Orlando Bloom. A girl can dream, right? Teenage turned adult crushes aside, it turns out  there are a few Ms Kerr-approved items that we can all possess ourselves – a slice of beauty straight out of her makeup bag. Her use of RMS Beauty, Rose-Marie Swifts range no-nonsense organic offering is a particularly well documented one, with Kerr being quoted many a time to confirm that their Living Luminizer, ‘Un’ Cover-Up and Lip2Cheek often reside in her everyday stash. So when I finally satisfied my urge and splurged, guess what three products ended up in my basket…

Yup, you got it. When this little trio of skin shimmering goodness arrived I may have whooped a little – may - and parcel attacked like a women possessed I began makeup playtime. First on was their ‘Un’ Cover-Up in #22 – nifty name, nifty product. A multi-tasking foundation/concealer/whatever you want it to be, packed with coconut oil. It’s not drying nor greasy and seamlessly blended in with fingers over red patches and pimples alike without a hint of cakeface. A clear contender for the spot of everyday base product – we’ll see. Next in the swatching line was the Lip2Cheek in Smile, which was probably the product that got me the least hot under the collar but turned out to be my favourite of the bunch. I usually find two-in-one products to excel in one area and turn out to be a bit of a dud in the other, but Smile looks and feels equally gorgeous (if I say so myself) on the pout and apples. Again I found my finger worked best with this peachy-pink tint which has since weaselled it’s way into my handbag. The Living Luminizer is the cult favourite that pricked my ears up to the world of RMS Beauty in the first place. ‘Like the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, but in cream form’ – helpfully tweeted one lovely gal the other day and I think she’s hit the nail on the head. No shimmer, no glitter, no gimmicks just sheen. You know the deal by now – smudged with fingers over the cheekbones – manages to eke out some kind of bone structure. Please do excuse the confused picture of yours truly above, but all I’m sporting are these three products blended over the face, cheeks and lips along with a ‘is my self-timer working’ look – simples.

So the colours, formulas and textures get a thumbs up, but now it’s time for ingredient junkies to prepare to engage in a little airborne fist pump. The RMS line consists of all organic, non-toxic, raw, high-quality materials in their purest form – it’s where skincare meets minerals and plays happy on the face all housed in 100% recyclable packaging. I can feel my inner green goddess doing a fist pump right now. And trust me, the ‘Ingredient’ section on their website makes for some hefty but informing reading.

RMS Beauty is still a bit of an elusive one here in the UK; to get up close and personal with the products the only place I’ve found in London is Beauty Content on Bulstrode Street, but it’s available pretty freely online if you fancy playing with unswatched fire. MK’s beauty secrets uncovered, tried, tested and Anna-approved, now it’s time to work on Orlando.

    Your nails! Deserving of their own blog post?

  • Mavs S

    Being a natural makeup blogger it’s great to read about these. I love RMS beauty but have only ever tried one product fearing like you say the unswatchedness of online purchases!
    will certainly be giving these a go now!

  • Amysbeautyjournal

    These sound good, I like the sound of the coconut oil in the concealer! Might have to give these a go soon… x

    I have to ask, the concealer looks really dark in the pot; does it lighten on the skin or is it really as dark as it looks? xx

  • The blush looks like such a gorgeous colour and I do love me some organic make up….now if only sharing a last name meant I got Orlando Bloom as well!

  • Liora Tamam

    the lip2cheek looks lovely! The colour really suits you xx

  • Elle

    You HAVE to try Kora!!! I would never usually spend so much on skincare (it’s pretty damn expensive, especially including shipping prices), but I had been interested in trying organic skincare, so I went out on a limb and ordered the package for oily-combination skin. After using it for only two weeks, my skin has literally never been so good since I was about 9 years old!!!!! you really gotta try it, it’s amazing

  • Oh… these look beautiful! I WANT.

  • Kate

    What beautiful products! 🙂

  • You make everything you write so enjoyable, Anna! I am very happy that you added some “healthier” makeup in your collection. Isn’t #22 a bit dark for you? I think #11 would match you better!

  • Camille Hutchinson

    I love the colour of that cheek/lip product 🙂


  • becca

    Anna you look stunning as usual! Beautiful colours.

  • Please, please, PLEASE tell me what’s on your nails!? I am in love!

  • Kassie lee

    I love Miranda Kerr she’s such a great role model. Great post anna

  • I adore RMS beauty! The un-coverup is my favorite. I’m pretty sure I could do my entire base without a peek in the mirror. I was quite surprised with the lasting ability of the lip2cheek, Modest is such a gorgeous shade. I’m trying out their Beauty Oil right now 🙂 yes, I’m a bit of a fan.

  • great post! I definitely am interested in trying this out now! Darn Anna my poor pockets are cursing you! Lol!

  • Rainer Lara

    Great post! I want to check out the line now.
    Btw, love your nails <3

  • Ally

    So happy to finally see RMS on your blog! I have the uncover up, living luminizer, lip2cheek in smile and modest, and the unpowder. They’re gorgeous and I love the sleek glass pots – I feel like I’m finger painting my way through morning makeup sometimes haha. I’m going to get the beauty oil, too. I’ve used it numerous times only in samples, but it’s a fave, too.

  • This is completely off topic, but qurrrl those nailsss. Probably the greatest nail design I’ve ever seen 🙂

  • Kayla

    Your nails! <3! Love the look of those products too. x

  • Jeanette Havmand Andersen

    How is the coverage of the un cover-up (Concealer)?
    Looking for a concealer to cover dark circles and redness.

  • hannah

    Due to the products organic ingredients, how long do they last before going out of date? xx

  • Kimberley

    Super easy to get the Kora range here in Australia if you need some posted over 🙂

    • How can I order them? I’m from the Philippines.

      And are KORA organic a really worth the price?
