Christmas is really coming! I’m über excited to see all the Christmas Sets starting to be released this month! Today I have a pretty one to share with you, the RMK Christmas 2017 Kit – The Seductive Love Palette Garden Spirit. This kit would definitely brighten up anyone’s Christmas Day! RMK Seductive Love Palette Garden Spirit is inspired by the work of Midori Sato, a young award-winning artist who is strongly captivated by the wonderful colours and forms of nature.
The packaging is rather cute and enchanting with attention to details.
RMK Seductive Love Palette Garden Spirit Kit contains:
- 4 Eyeshadows
- 3 Cheek Shades
- Matte Burgundy Mascara N 04 (4.7g, mini size)
- Ruby Red Jelly Lip Gloss EX-04 (4.5g, mini size)
First, let’s have a look at the eyeshadows:
- Medium brown: satin finish
- Baby pink: matte finish
- Pine Green: satin finish with micro giltters
- Silver: with medium-size silver glitters, slightly dry and gritty to the touch
I must admit I assumed the shades would be on the sheerer side. However, the green and brown really blew me away. They are finely-milled, silky to the touch and rather pigmented. The pink shade is sheer and serves well as a base. I find that using my finger to dab the shades on would give me much better colour pay-off.
I have been enjoying a few looks with the 4 eyeshadows. One look is to apply the pink shade all over the eye as a base, followed by the brown shade on my mobile lid, then layer the green shade onto the crease and finish off with a pop of silver in the corners of my eyes. The other look, my favourite, is to create a green smokey eye – a very wearable one! After applying the pink shade as a base, I would apply the green shade all over my mobile lid, deepen the outer V with the brown shade, blend and smooth the crease with what’s left on the brush and finish off by layering the silver shade in the centre of my lid. I struck it lucky with this set since I have brown eyes, the green and pink works charmingly as they really make my eyes pop.
Below are the swatches of the eyeshadows on my moisturised arm in natural lighting.
I also have done some swatches of the shades when layered together. The 3 middle shades are achieved by layering the silver sparkling shade on top. The top swatch is of the green shade layered on the brown shade. My favourite combo is to layer the silver shade on top of the green shade!
The eyeshadows last well over 7 hours (on top of my normal primer), with minimal creasing. There is some glitter migration during wear.
The Cheek Trio is LOVE. The powder is finely-milled and smooth in texture with micro-glitters running through the pan. The glitters are extremely fine and do not translate onto my skin. I concentrate my brush on the 2 pink shades to give myself a touch of pink on the cheeks. For highlighter, I swirl my brush over the light pink and white shades. The powder blends out seamlessly and melds into my skin imperceptibly. The finish is light, airy and buildable. Love the youthfulness and fresh feel the blush gives. The blush lasts around 6 hours on my oily skin.
Now we have the cute mini Matte Mascara and Lip Jelly Gloss.
My very first experience with a burgundy mascara! It has been fun and refreshing! The mascara gives my lashes the much needed extra volume, maybe not too much lengthening. The burgundy shade compliments the earthy eye makeup and gives it a nice warmth feel. It is a brilliant water-proof mascara and my short curls stayed up extremely well. The down side is that I did find the mascara slightly hard to remove at the end of day.
The Lip Jelly Gloss is in line with RMK’s standard formula which I happen to love, light weight and non-sticky. I adore the clear plastic doe foot applicator (reviewed here). The pigmentation is relatively sheer. The colour fades away after 1 hour or so as with any other glosses, but the shine and hydration soldier on, helping my lips stay looking fresh and plump. Pairing with my green smokey eyes, it gives a perfect balance.
I love the enchanting, youthful and fresh looks I can achieve with RMK Seductive Love Palette Garden Spirit. I think this would make a wonderful Christmas gift for someone who is drawn to these tones or appreciates the artistry of the kit. It is also a fabulous way to experience what RMK has to offer.
RMK Seductive Love Palette Garden Spirit will be available from 11th November 2017 at Selfridges.
