I think by now you know how OBSESSED I am with RMS beauty, in particular their lip products. I think she has nailed the formula, packaging, colours and ingredients. I really love her lip shines, which to me are a hybrid between a lip gloss and a lip balm. I love using raw coconut oil on my lips as I have very dry lips, so RMS lip shines are the perfect product for me. I love her lip shine in sacred, which is a very pigmented bright pink, however I was looking for a more sheer pink wash of colour to use at night or on a daily basis. My mother was using this colour, which is bloom, described as a “sheer petal pink with a subtle hint of shimmer.” The shade is exactly that, a very sheer wash of colour that is almost the same shade as my lip colour. I will admit at first I was quite disappointed as I thought it was too sheer for me and not glossy enough. The colour did grow on me and I really liked how natural it looked on my lips. As with all RMS products, everything is raw, food grade, and certified organic, which I especially love in lip products.
“Fusing a blend of nourishing oils and pure mineral pigments, this creamy lip emollient delivers a sheer hint of colour and a touch of gloss to lips.”
This is a very nourishing, healing balm that feels smooth and hydrating on the lips. However, I don’t think this is glossy enough for me and would prefer more shine. I do love how this does not feel sticky at all! Even though it has shimmer in it, you cannot see or feel chunks of it on your lips. Because this is a lighter shade of pink, if you have any dry skin on your lips it will catch onto it. I always recommend scrubbing your lips beforehand. I wouldn’t say this is the most moisturising lip shine I’ve tried, as I found the colour sacred to be a lot more hydrating. Nonetheless, this is still a great lip product that moisturises and provides a sheer wash of colour.
I can’t really describe the scent, other than it’s not fruity or floral, just natural. It kind of smells/tastes like raw coconut oil. I quite like it. Even though the size of the pot is small, the product lasts such a long time as you only need a little bit. Because this is a sheer colour, it won’t last as long on your lips, compared to sacred which would leave a pretty stain on my lips overnight!

I would highly recommend trying out her lip shines if you like to wear lip balm with colour. If you love coconut oil like me, especially on your lips, you will love her products! I think she has created gorgeous formulas and shades that would work for everyone.
