I was kindly invited along to the RMK counter at Selfridges in Manchester to hear all about their beautiful limited edition Vintage Sweets Collection. Makeup inspired by tea parties and sweets how could I say no! I had seen the RMK counter whilst shopping in the beauty hall but never stopped to take a look, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to learn all about the brand as well as have a makeover using their new collection.
Japanese brand 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. It’s sold internationally and is most well known for promoting natural and have developed products which work with your so your skin looks natural, beautiful and fresh. I love that ethos and its wonderful to hear a brand encouraging you not to mask but to enhance your features.
RMK has quite a small but very well put together range of products, on my visit to the counter I had a mini facial and absolutely loved the Cleansing Balm. This product starts as a solid balm in a pot & you scoop out a small amount, rub it in between your hands where it transforms into a silky liquid much like an oil. Then you massage it on to your face where is emulsifies and breaks down your makeup and dirt to give your skin a very deep cleanse.
Its so hydrating and soothing on the skin, it contains Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil and Avocado Oil. Its now at the top of my wish list. So don’t overlook their skincare as it is as impressive as their makeup,
Their new limited edition collection has been inspired by Vintage Sweets and Tea Parties which really comes through in the pastel colours and pretty scents. This collection has such a girly soft feel to it and it is all beautifully packaged too. Its a very pretty collection and I think it’s just perfect for Spring. The collection is made up of :-
Sugar Sweet Eyes – There are 5 eyeshadows, each has a stripe design. They are slightly shimmery but very pretty. You get two shades in each Sugar Sweet Eyes and they can be used together or individually to create your Spring look.
W Color Mascara – These come in 5 shades and are double ended with one colour on each for the upper lashes and the other for the bottom lashes. So you can really mix up your look and create something fresh and colourful. I opted for the Blue & Green, slightly safe but still very pretty.
Vintage Candy Cheeks – These come in 4 options & each one has two shades which you can swirl your brush in and create a pretty colour. These are quite reflective & give the cheek a healthy bronze or peachy glow. I loved these & thought they were just beautiful. They looked like candy bon bons in the pan & were just as cute on the cheeks.
Vintage Drop Gloss – available in 4 pretty shades. They all have good colour payoff on the lips & leave the lips feeling smooth and hydrated. There is no stickiness & they don’t feel tacky which is good news. You could layer these on top of a lipstick too. Each shade has a scent and they are all so good, good enough to eat. The scents are Rose, Maple Syrup, Cassis and Butter Scotch.
Vintage Sweets Face Color – These come in 2 options and each compact has blend of 4 pastel hues. They are both ideal as a finishing powder to give the skin an even luminous finish. These look so pretty in the pan and the packaging is compact and elegant, as is the whole collection.
Nail Color & Nail Art Liners – These are gorgeous pastel colours which are subtle but pretty and very feminine. I have tried the Art Liners which are quite tricky to use but I have heard the Nail Polishes are fast drying and quite long wearing.
The lady at RMK did a great job of my makeup & I loved my look. If you live near a Selfridges you should pop in and visit your RMK counter for an introduction to this gorgeous collection. Or browse their collection online.
Vintage Sweets is a collection that will capture your imagination and give your makeup a pretty fresh Spring twist.
Thank you to the lovely RMK counter at Selfridges Manchester Exchange Sq for a lovely afternoon & the selection of RMK Vintage Sweets products they kindly gifted me to try at home.
