This LOTD features a couple of RMK products from their Fall Collection. For more information, and lots of pictures and swatches, click on this ENTRY here.
Here is the main product I am using for my eyes:
RMK Dusty Bright Eyes [6 shades, SGD$65 each]
02 Grayish Green
And this is what I did to create the look. I did not use the brush that comes with the product, and I used mainly only my fingers, except when I was applying the browbone highlight color.
The creamy green color is quite moist to the touch, and delivers soft buildable color. If you blend it out, it looks sheer... however, if you layer it, the color can become quite intense. I also lightly rubbed the edges to create a soft crease and blended effect. Nothing was really neat since I was using my fingers. Then I used the silvery shimmery eyeshadow to 'transform' the green... it was a very silvery kind of glittery eyeshadow.. it felt dry to the touch, not like a smooth creamy texture of the green shade. However, the product wasn't gritty and the fallout, if any, was minimal. I kept patting on whenever I think I want more sparkles. You can still see the green undertones... the silvery shimmery eyeshadow is very sparkly, but it doesn't take away the base color.
The overall effect is really fantastic for a nightlook, where the lights will shine on your lids/ face and the sparkles catch the lights, and they really look quite blingy, especially when you turn your face about, and your eyes catch the different light angles. The lighting in this pictures washed out the actual colors a bit... but in real life, the green still really shows through, and I used a cotton stick to pick up more green and used it to line the lower lids.
I am really enjoying the silvery shimmery eyeshadow... and if you are into sparkly stuff... this might really appeal to you.. For me this is something which I would prolly only wear when I am going out at night. Like a party or something.
Completed eyelook --- green is not really showing up in thepictures, but you might be able to see bits of it on my lower lids.
RMK Gloss Lips N [4 shades; 2 are seasonal limited edition, SGD$36 each]
I am using EX 02 *LE Deep Red, and I kind of sheered out this shade by dabbing the product and spreading it out. The shimmers in this gloss are lovely, and the gloss does not feel sticky. I don't like the applicator though. It is like the MAC Dazzleglass, with the weird plasticky hard tip, but yet it looks like a brush applicator. So it doesn't spread the product well, and I had to use my fingers to blend and spread.
And a couple more looks:
