I have just recently posted about Tom Ford, Burberry, Edward Bess and Suqqu blushes and I feel like I am cheating on my favorite and Holy Grail blushes… 😛
I need to very briefly talk about these RMK and give them the post they deserve. It’s going to be quick : I urge you to try them.
The RMK Mix Colors for Cheeks are my favorite blushes, ever. There is no other blush that I love more.
They are easy to travel with and have a nice large mirror.
They are so incredibly pigmented and glowy, the texture is like silk, it’s very easy to pick up the product with the brush and to blend it, you can use each shade separately, 2 or 3 swirled together, you can also use them on the eyes… The combinations are gorgeous. The lasting power is out of this world.
You can see that the packaging looks a bit old because they are always in my daily make up bag. I put a lipstick on the right so that you can compare the size.
They contain 5.3 grams for 25 Gbp, compared to a Nars blush, it’s exactly in the same price range (Nars has 4.8 grams for 21 Gbp).
Here are some pictures of them swatched (on the right, all the shades swirl together) :
I also tried to add pictures wearing them but believe me, they are much much better in real life, the picture is not showing how glowing and stunning they actually look.
I feel better… I really needed to point out that even though I love many brands and textures, these RMK Mix Colors for Cheeks are gems and definitely my HG !
Those are gorgeous! I am jealous 🙂 No RMK in the US to my knowledge…..
For you to say they are your HG over Tom Ford (and the other lines that we both seem to favor) intrigues me to say the least!
Not fair to tempt a cosmetic junkie this way!
Thanks for all of the great pictures and reviews!
Hi Stacy ! Thank you 😀 That’s why I had to say it 🙂 even if I love TF and Suqqu, these are more interesting, the possibilities they provide and their quality makes them absolute must haves.
When I saw them for the first time, I was waiting at the Suqqu counter (the RMK counter is 1 meter away in Selfridges), I swatched them and I just could not leave without them, and to say the truth, at that time I did not know RMK at all !
If there is no RMK in the US, then it’s a cruel temptation… but…, I think you can order RMK at ichibankao or beautybay.com and I believe they do ship to the US, just be careful with the taxes as I don’t know how it works in the US.
hope this helps 😛
Just to add a little more information about RMK 04 Coral Beige , I contacted beautybay and they no longer stock 04 (?) but they do stock 01,02,03.So my only recourse ordering on-line was ichibankao , which was way more expensive , and I’m still waiting 5 days later ( how long do you wait for their delivery ?).But because of your photos and other followers endorsements I’m sure I shall be delighted with it .Now I must choose one of your recommended brushes 😀 hx
I don’t remember how I long I waited, I wasn’t shocked so I don’t think it was so long, sorry 🙁 I believe I got the items under 10 days…
Let me know what brush you are tempted to get 🙂
I am sure you will love the blush, shame you had to pay so much !!!!
You know what Sonia, you actually DID do these products justice – the swatches and photos of you wearing it make them look GOOD – your skin is absolutely glowing with natural-looking radiance! Wowza…where do I sign, I mean buy!?? 😛
Thank you so much Latoya !! I am frustrated because I cannot show how lovely they look in real 😛 but I am so happy that this helps !
I got mine at Selfridges in London but as I said in the previous reply to Stacy, Beautybay and Ichibankao have RMK and they ship worldwide. I will check if I find them available somewhere else on an online site and if I do I’ll let you know… 🙂
You look really good in these pictures!
Are these RMK blushes better than those of NARS?
Thank you sooo much 🙂
They are different, yes I find them better because of the quality of the powder, the lasting power and the finish on my skin is more subtle and elegant, some Nars blushes have sparkles and I try to stay away from sparkles on my face, but that said, I absolutely love the Nars Torrid blush and I have already some Laguna empties… 🙂
Breuninger delivered my Laura Mercier Alloy & Gold today! I’d seen LOADS of reviews & swatches of them & had them in my basket a bazillion times but it was your swatches that finally got me to pull the trigger:) I’m thrilled . Thank you!
I have also now ordered the RMK blushes!! I trust your opinion and the pics are GOOD!!!! Perhaps I should stop checking out your blog!? It would mean a LOT less stress for my credit card!!
You are very welcome Buggsiebee, you are a sweetheart and I am really flattered !
When I was posting about these RMK I found the site beautybay and I ordered the other two since I believe they were out of stock in Selfridges. I also ordered one for the eyes but I have not tried the Mix colors for the eyes yet.
Plizzzzzz don’t stop and come back soon 😀 my reviews are not always positive anyway 😉
RMK 02 Coral is breathtaking. I am a huge fan of corals and peaches. *sigh* I can’t wait! Thank you again, Sonia. *hug*
It is, you will love it !
I had to work today so I can ship only on Monday, I’ll keep you updated 🙂
I ordered the 04 Coral Beige from Strawberrynet yesterday, thanks to your review and swatches. I’ve also finally caved and forked out a fortune for the Chantecaille Les Macarons palette. I trust that it’ll be good ‘cos you said so:)
lol ok Audrey.. no pressure here.. at all 😀 I love both A LOT !
