Any opportunity to tie an #untaintedalternative into a theme AND and calendar event! Today is such a day, and RMS Beauty’s Cream Eye Polish in Magnetic is just the product! “Why?” you ask. Well, today happens to be World Coconut Day…a day in which we pay our respects to the humble palm tree, bearer of coconuts and giver of oil loved and adored the world over. RMS Beauty uses raw, organic coconut oil as a base for many of her cream products. This deep, delicious, aubergine-y hued cream eyeshadow is a firm favourite in my pro-kit.
Of course, being a cream eyeshadow, it does crease as the oils and waxes naturally warm on the skin. Light-reflecting (ethically sourced) mica. This gives it a subtle, glossy, light-reflecting quality that can be used in a number of ways. This eye polish is great on its own to add a light wash of colour or ramp it up it for a bit of a grungy 90’s look. If you’re after a more sophisticated look, it’s best used as a base to intensify any pressed shadow you apply over it. Sjaniël did just that in our latest editorial, “Night Shades”.
A little goes a long way, so start off with a small amount and build up the colour. Also, because of all the rich, nourishing oils in this formulation, there is no need to use a moisturiser or eye cream around the eye area first.
