RMS Beauty Mineral Cream Eye Shadow in Seduce

First some background information for you. RMS stands for Rose-Marie Swift, a personal make up artist who has spent years researching the effect that different chemicals have on our skin and has now created her own cosmetic line using all pure and organic ingredients. All products are created to hydrate and illuminate your skin and are advertised as skincare with mineral colour. Now it's not a particularly purse friendly brand (this eyeshadow cost me £19 i.e. $30 from Cult Beauty), but they do have an interesting ethos (which you can read more about here along with a comprehensive guide to all ingredients used) and if that's something you look for in your makeup, this could be a brand to keep an eye on.

Now onto the actual eyeshadow. The formula is amazing. Super smooth and moisturising and an absolute dream to blend. However, I find that it doesn't really dry or set on the eyelids, compared to something like Maybelline's Colour Tattoos, and this can lead to creasing. Although this can be annoying, I don't find it too much of a problem as it can easily be fixed with a swipe of your finger. However I do understand that when paying that much money for an eyeshadow, you want it to be pretty amazing, and if ingredients aren't all that important to you, a more purse friendly option would probably be better. Having said that though, I do really love this eyeshadow. It definitely does leave my eyelids feeling moisturised and smooth and is so easy to apply. 

The shade I have is Seduce, a gorgeous metallic, shimmery bronze, with just a hint of mossy green (don't let that scare you though). I love this for a light wash of colour all over the lid but it can also be packed on for more of a smokey eye. There are five shades available, all of which are quite natural, fitting in with the philosophy of the brand. The shadow softens with the warmth from my fingers on application and blends easily.

This is a good brand if you're looking to treat yourself and believe the ingredients you use on your face are important (like we all should!). It is a quite pricey however I am keen to see what else the brand has to offer. Please let me know if you've tried any RMS products and if you'd recommend them!
