RMS Beauty Lip Shine in “Bloom”

Hello Beauties!

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.

With flash, you can see tiny flecks of shimmer.

Description:

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!

Ingredients: *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Buriti (Mauritia Flexuosa) Oil, *Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Centella Asiatica Extract, *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Non-GMO, may contain: [+/- Iron Oxides CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891 and Mica CI 77019].

I love how short and simple her ingredient list is. I also love how you can recognise every single ingredient!

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.

RMS Beauty Lip Shine in Sacred Review

Hello Beauties!

Today I will be reviewing the RMS Beauty lip shine in Sacred. As you know RMS Beauty is my favourite organic line of cosmetics, particularly their lip products. At first glance this colour may look very bright and scary, but it is very wearable and pretty. It has become my favourite lip colour from the entire RMS range (as you can see I have almost used it all up!).  It gives your lips such a pretty pinky red stain that lasts for hours. You can customise the amount of pigment you want, as it can be worn as a sheer tint or as a fully opaque glossy colour. I like wearing this to bed as my tinted lip balm and the colour lasts until I wash it off in the morning. You have to really exfoliate your lips with more vibrant colours, such as this, otherwise it will cling onto dry patches and make them look darker. Also, it can stain your pillowcase if it hasn’t fully dried down to a stain.

I have very fair skin with dark hair, and this product is perfect for brightening up my complexion. As this is a lip shine, it’s a glossy formula that hydrates the lips very well. I have been wearing this every single night since I bought it, which was a year ago. This product will last you such a long time as you only need a little bit to get the pigment you want.

The packaging of RMS products is my favourite. I prefer pot lip balm products and like to use my fingers to work the product in. Because this colour is very bright and staining, it can stain under your nails and fingers if not wiped off straight away. There’s no particular strong scent, other than coconut oil, which I love. The formula is glossy, but not sticky. Overall, I would highly recommend this colour as well as the entire RMS lip range, as you are getting high quality raw ingredients that are high performance.

Handbag Essential: Hurraw Coconut Lip Balm!

Hello Beauties!

fullsizerenderI thought I’d share with you a handbag essential, the Hurraw Coconut Lip Balm. I was on the lookout for an organic, inexpensive, moisturising, clear lip balm that I could just throw in my purse…and I have found it! I always have dry lips, so finding a heavy duty hydrating lip balm is essential to me! I also love the scent of coconut, so this lip balm is heaven for me. What’s amazing is that you can choose from 24 different flavours on their website!

The shape of this lip balm is quite unique, but there are definite pros and cons to having this oval shape. I don’t have very big lips, just middle sized, and I find that sometimes when applying this I get some on my teeth as it’s too large for my upper lip, so I do prefer the classic round shape of a lip balm. However, because of the thin, oval shape of the lip balm, it fits perfectly in your wallet.

Description of Coconut Flavour:

“Hurraw! Coconut Lip Balm is a soothing, creamy fresh coconut concoction! Not too beachy, just a little toasty, this warm coconut is subtle yet delicious. Hurraw! Balms are all natural, vegan, organic and fair trade. Especially formulated to be super smooth, non-sticky, non-sweet and long-lasting, Hurraw! Balms are premium quality and the perfect size to take with you.”

This lip balm is definitely very moisturising and smooth on the lips, with a lovely warm coconut scent!

Ingredients: Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, ‡Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, *Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, *Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, *Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, *Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, organic flavor, Tocopherols (sunflower)

*organic & cold pressed ‡wildcrafted

I love how minimal and transparent the ingredient list is. It’s also suitable for Vegans and is cruelty free!

Size: 4.3 g

Price: AUD $6.45.

I know that this may seem expensive for a lip balm, but I have had this for such a long time and still have so much left. I also lick my lips a lot and don’t want to swallowing nasty chemicals. When you look at the quality of the ingredients, being vegan, raw and organic, then this is definitely worth it.
