Organic Beauty: New RMS Lip Shine in Sublime

There are only a scant few cosmetics companies that I feel that I must have everything they make. RMS (makeup artist and organic beauty guru Rose-Marie Swift) is currently at the top of the list. There's a brand new Lip Shine shade called Sublime, and sublime it is. Loaded up with skin-loving ingredients like coconut and moringa oil, Vitamin E and rosemary extract, RMS Lip Shines are cushiony-comfy to wear. The densely pigmented formula is buildable and can go from very sheer to near opaque depending on your preference. I've even used mine as a creme blush.

My favorite thing about the Sublime Lip Shine is the color. It's fresh, it's exciting and cheery, and it almost makes me want to hurl all my neutral/nude shades out the window. Almost. Hallelujah for blue-based pinks! There aren't enough of them, and this color does not exist anywhere else in the world of organic beauty that I could find (and believe me, I've searched exhaustively). It's a bright, bubblegum pink that I think would best suit cool and neutral skin tones, but I've been told by an esthetician on Twitter (shout out to @BarefootHoodoo!) that she has been using it on all her clients, and that it looks amazing on everyone.

RMS Lip Shine is also available in two other shades: Moment- a rosy brown shade, and Bloom- a very sheer neutral pink shine (see below). Bloom is next on my hit list.

For versatility, color payoff, fabulous organic ingredients and the of-the-moment bright and flattering color of Sublime, I dub this Lip Shine my #1 must-have beauty product for summer

[I purchased mine for my own personal use at Spirit Beauty Lounge for $25. It's also available at NuboNao and other retail websites, and also direct from RMS Beauty]

  2. These look fantastic-- Sublime is gorgeous and calling my name!

    I wanted to let you know that I have been following your blog for some time and really appreciate your witty take on things. My blog was just nominated for a Liebster Blog Award, and I love your blog so much that I nominated yours.

    I'm really glad to have found your blog-- it's one of my most pleasurable reads in the blogosphere!


    1. Hi Lola! Sublime is so aptly named, I think. It's the kind of pink that most of the female species is hard wired to grab.

      Thanks so much for being a reader and your sweet compliments as well! I'm going to check out your blog right now. :)

    2. Hi Carrie, I think that I am going to have to order Sublime- everything about it speaks to me. That it is organic is a huge plus- since we invariably end up digesting so much of what we wear on our lips!! Thanks for the discount coupon as well!

      You are so very welcome-- I just felt the need to express was I thought, and to celebrate what you do so very well! :-)
