I love this time of the year – as all the new Spring / Summer make up collections are released for us to drool over. And this time it’s the turn of RMK who are adding a bit of bling to theirs with the RMK Spring Shimmer range. They have taken pretty spring colours in baby pinks, subtle blues and minty greens – and added a beautiful iridescent and shimmery finish! Ohhh too cute.
I was lucky enough to be sent through some products from the new RMK Spring Shimmer collection, and of course couldn’t wait to give them the Pampered and Polished test.
The first product with the RMK Crayon and Powder Eyes. These are chunky double-ended crayon which have a soft creamy shadow to inject some colour onto your lids and a sponged tip on the other end to apply a delicate shimmer which is kept in the lid. I love the idea of this product, flashes of colour for your eyes which are softened by the loose powder, all from the convenience of one product.
There are seven colours within the RMK Spring Shimmer Crayon and Powder Eyes collection and I got to try Light Green. It’s fresh, subtle and worked well with my eye colour.
The crayon tip was creamy and glided just enough colour onto my lids. As it was in a chunky style pencil it was really easy to use and apply. Next came the shimmer layer, and I hate to say this – I was a little disappointed. The idea of a shimmer layer to keep the colour soft and natural is fabulous. However in reality I just couldn’t get enough of the powder out of the lid to make much of a difference. The shimmer powder colour was so delicate and dewy looking that I just wanted more of it.
The other product within the RMK Spring Shimmer collection I was sent was the RMK Lip Crayon. Again this was a chunky pencil style product which comes in a choice of six shades.
I tried the RMK Lip Crayon in Pink – and I loved it. Like the eye pencil the texture was smooth and creamy and glided on my lips.
The pencil looked like it would be a little too bright, but the end finish was actually really delicate and more of a stain than a full on lipstick pout. Perfect if you are going for the coloured eye make up style.
I do think that the RMK Spring Shimmer collection is a gorgeous collection. The colours are delicate and fresh. The collection also contains a fab range of nail colours in fruity orange, pastel pink, cool purple, soft yellow and sky blue which all have a unique blend of pearl particles in them to bring out the colour.
The RMK Spring Shimmer collection hits shops in February and is available in Selfridges and ASOS. The RMK Crayon and Powder Eyes and RMK Lip Crayons are both priced at £15
