When it comes to make-up I’m always attracted to bright colours and girlie shimmery shades. I do however have a habit of playing it safe these days and sometimes find myself in a bit of a make-up rut. One of my little resolutions for the year was to start having fun with make-up again and a really good place to start was a new range by Japanese premium make-up brand RMK.
The Vintage Sweets collection is the epitome of fun, feminine colourful make-up and of course the idea of it being inspired by vintage sweets really appealed to me. The collection features a selection of eyeshadows, face powders, blushers, lip glosses and mascaras. The range is available at Selfridges and I plan to go there very soon and get a few bits from the collection and to try a few of the different shades.
The presentation of the products is simply beautiful, they come in sleek silver packaging and the product itself looks absolutely lovely inside. To me luxury isn’t just about owning an expensive product, it’s about having something really special that makes you smile, and to me these gorgeous products fit the bill.
I was sent one of the fabulous new two colour mascaras to try. The W Colour Mascara features a different colour for top and bottom lashes, mine came in a gorgeous bright blue and pink combination. I was so impressed with both the pigmentation and the formula of both mascaras. It really didn’t take many layers to get a nice block of colour and the brushes made the application really easy. The two brushes are different sizes and are shaped differently for easy application of both top and bottom lashes.
I haven’t worn a coloured mascara in absolutely ages as I usually wear black eyeliner so a black mascara is the obvious choice for me. However I changed my make-up look a bit and used a navy blue pencil on my upper lid before adding a few strokes of the mascara. Despite the bright colours I found the look more subtle than I expected. The colours are chosen to accentuate the eyes, with a deeper shade on top and a pop of colour on the bottom which I think really works. The formula also contains skincare ingredients which nourish the lashes.
I’ll definitely be using the mascara again and I’ll hopefully be investing in a few more products from the collection really soon. The mascara itself comes in 5 different shades and I would love to see how the other colour combinations work.
